I got these headphones when my first pair of headphones from Skullcandy broke after several years of use. They fit well in the ear and are great for exercising and other active use. The sound is clean and crisp and has good base for being an ear bud. Another plus is that the Skullcandy warranty will replace your headphones if they ever stop working. With that warranty, these headphones were actually an upgrade from the original ones I purchased.
