I was looking forward to getting these as I've heard great things about Skullcandy. Unfortunately they were a huge disappointment. The general sound quality is almost as good as my other pair of lower-priced earbuds. They are very comfy when sitting around. Start moving though and you get all sorts of horrible banging noises from the cord and they start to fall out. I think one of the biggest problems is the mic/remote is on the left-ear-cord; so they get to swinging really bad. (My other earbuds have the buttons on the main cord so they just hang straight down and barely swing at all.) Wore them on a run and ended up having to hold them the whole time. Then tried them while just walking in town and they stayed in but still had all the banging noise coming from the cords hitting my jacket. General quality seems OK. Because they're comfy and sound OK when not moving and I got them for super cheap, I'll probably just use them in the office and keep using my other ones for when I'm moving. Not what I expected for a brand aimed at the active crowd!
