I went through two pairs of these in less than five months and I can say I am through with the Skullcandy brand for good.
My first pair lasted for about 4 months. I did not use them roughly, they sat at my desk for my computer and I would occasionally wear them to work out. I really liked the fit and the sound quality was acceptable. Then the wires started shorting out near the plug and eventually they disconnected completely. They were toast.
So because I liked the fit, I shelled out money for another pair. These ones started having the same wire shorting problem, but it only took about a week. Unfortunately I didn't buy them from BC so I couldn't return them, so I'm stuck with 2 sets of busted headphones.
As a side note I also have the Skullcandy Smokin' Buds (got off SAC) and they are crapping out after about 6 months of use. The left speaker cracks and sounds terrible.
All my Skullcandy buds couldn't handle basic desktop use. That is pathetic. What a trash product. Spend your money elsewhere!
