Its been a while since I have used skullcandys and I must say I am not dissapointed. The headphones block out outside noise very well, so well you will find yourself only using one bud at a time. Then there is the sound quality, as for the music as a whole it sounds much deeper than with other speakers like on a iHome or things like that. The bass is also good, not exceptional, but better than most buds that carry a simiar price tag. These buds can also crank the tunes loud without the annoying rattle that comes from other headphones. I have also used them skiing a couple times and have never heard a difference in the sound quality or had problems with the buds falling out of my ears. Altogether a good buy for some one that listens to music fairly often (about three hours a day is how much I use them) and needs something with more kick.
I would give them 5 stars but the bass just is not perfect. Again in no way is the bass bad, it just is not the best I have heard.
