These headphones are sick. I would recommend them to anyone willing to spend a decent amount of $$ for very high-quality headphones. And I mean Yellow and Baby Blue? It doesnt get more dope than that.
The SKPROs are designed for professional DJs so they provide the listener with super high quality sound and wicked bass. My music has never sounded so good and their relatively light design makes watching movies feel like the best surround sound. The leather earpads and padded "headband" make them rediculously comfortable for the daily commute or chillin at home.
These headphones were designed to swivel and twist in all directions for studio monitoring or whatever DJs do but i find the extra swivel on these to be the best of any skullcandy headphone because they really hug your head and fold up nicely to put in you backpack. A bunch of people i know who had TIs and GIs had problems with the clips (that attach the headphone to the headband) breaking when they were folded up but with the SK it folds up quite compact with the head phones going all the way up into the head band which will protect them from breaking in my bag. I did miss the little volume dial on the cord but only a minor detail and i much prefer the super-long coiled wire to a longer straight wire that gets all tangled. Now the only other drawback is that these badboys weren't made for grinding rails or stomping cliff hucks so they aren't 100% secure on your head. As I sit here just shaking my head side to side pretty quick makes them move a little bit and if I lean my head all the way back they slip off. Again they are more for listening to music at home or on the road or watching movies wherever and less for sports performance although I'm sure putting them over a beanie might keep them on better. As for skiing I would recommend the Smokin Buds (I have them in rasta and theyre dope) or the Icon/Recruits (super light and won't fall off since they go over you head).
For $191 in Canada I almost choked in the store at how much they cost considering how much you can buy for 200 bucks. However for the quality of product I am quite happy with this investment because skullcandys have a lifetime warranty for defects and if I break em accidentally I get a new pair for 50% off...pretty good deal if you ask me.
So far they have no scratches, cracks, cuts, problems at all and as I said before theyre design makes them more durable. I keep em in the included bag (sorta like a goggle condom for headphones) and theyre fine.
As most people who know anything about headphones are aware, Skullcandy is one company all about style and performance. And as far as Skullcandy's headphones go the SKPRO is the king of the 08-09 lineup. These headphones were comfy, working perfect and lookin dope fresh out the box. Despite not being a pro DJ myself I think spending the extra cash on the SKPRO is money well spent if you enjoy a very high quality musical expierience (it helps if your music is good quality too). They come with an adapter for amps (6.3 mm adaptor for those who know what I'm talkin about) that screws on in like 3 seconds which is great if you need it and its also got a little bag and a little skull sticker.
