for the price you pay, i suggest you looke elsewhere.. the wires coil up and get dirrty extremly fast.. i'm so glad that they don't make this line anymore.. thanks dogfunk for your unlimited return policy!!!
Best deal ever!
Was very excited that these came with a built in mic! Because it didn't say anything about a mic in the review. Great deal, the sound quality is definitely worth it. I own a pair, bought these as a present for my boyfriend.
I've had these for three years & love them!! They have excellent sound quality & have adjustable ear bud to fit in a variety sizes. I'll admit I don't have the ear buds from three years ago, but Skull Candy has taken care of myself every time something went wrong & sent a new pair to me. I wish more companies had lifetime warrantees like Skull Candy. If you watch Whiskey Miltia or the Outlet site you can get these for some killer deals.
The GOOD skullcandy headphone
This pair is a big improvement from the skull candy titans. My titans lasted about a month and half then finally one ear phone fell off. Then the other kept shocking me. These are much better. I picked up a pair from steep and cheap for 11 bucks. No tangle from the wire coating, and much better quality sound. Hopefully they last longer than my titans
full metal crap
I had an older pair of these when one bud went out. Skullcandy is really great with warranties, if its a manufactuarer defect they replace it, if its from "extreme listening" they give you a decent discount on a new pair.
Anyways, the sound quality is decent in these, cancels out noise around you pretty well, I use them for sleeping other places alot even without music they double as decent ear plugs. They are not however that comfortable, they cause an earache for me after awhile. The little gels will rip off and get lost and you'll be left with a $70 pair of headphones that are useless. The cord on some styles is a metal clear coated, its thick, sticky and becomes a hassle if you've got your ipod in a pocket or something, its also heavy enough to pull out the ear bud at times. The only plus to these were the added mic/control piece on the cord, but infact just adds more weight and pulls them out of my ear even easier, unless i'm sitting dead still..
all in all, not great for the price they seem to give alot of people trouble.
Washed and dried em in the laundry...
And they still work. I've had a pair for more than a year, and when I accidentally washed it I was devastated, cause the right earbud lost all its bass...I bought another pair, and soon enough it fell into the sink. After I dried them, they also were still functioning, but also lost their bass.
In the process of trying to get them to work again, I sucked on the little hole that allows air to get through the earbuds, and I heard a faint popping noise. When I tried them again, they worked perfectly. I did this with my old pair, and the same thing worked.
Sound quality is great--got deep lows, crisp highs, and despite what everyone else says about their poor construction, I'm pretty ecstatic about their resilience over the past year.
The wire is coated/wrapped in some rigid metal inside the whole cord. This makes the whole cord stiff and almost as stiff as guitar strings. not very comfortable, or forgiving to go in a jacket or anything. makes itself pull out of your ears at all times. the sound isnt very good either...
Trust me these have a great sound quality and look very stylish! I recommend them!
Pass on the Trash
I've never really been thrilled by a Skullcandy product and they are rather notorious for bad quality items but this is just sad. After about a month, maybe less, of moderate use and minimal abuse one of the buds just randomly stopped functioning unless I manually held the wires at a certain angle where it connects to the volume control. The sound quality was never amazing but I was willing to put up with them since they actually functioned and I had no other options aside from buying a different pair. Got these off Whiskey Militia for fourteen bucks and that was still a rip off for the one month of use I got from them. Garbage.
Full Metal Jacket crap
The look great but have some serious duribility issues. I have bought two pair of these off of Whiskeymilitia. Both pair failed after one month of use. I have to say that I did like them while they lasted because the sound quality was pretty good for the price. Not worth it becuase the audio started cutting out with a few weeks of normal wear. Don't waste your money. Look elsewhere for a pair of headphones. I will never buy another pair of skullcandy again.
Do these headphones have a volume & mute...
Do these headphones have a volume & mute button?
Also can you switch playlists with the headphone control button?
No volume control
it works with HTC desire HD? Thanks.
it works with HTC desire HD? Thanks.
Yep, should work with pretty much all android phones since they use the standard headphone jack.
stay away from skullcandy!!
I have purchased five pairs of these from steep and cheap for around 10.00 each. I am down to one working pair, all the others have lost all sound or sound in one ear. The warranty process sucks! If you need a cool name and a sticker keep buying these otherwise let em go. I feel sorry for anyone who has paid retail or even half price for. They are worth around 2.00 a set.
get the titans instead
the cord is stiff, they dont stay in your ear (and i did try all the inserts), and the volume level isnt the same in both headphones. the right side is louder than the left...really annoying
Looks are deceiving
To say I am obsessed with headphones is an understatement. I own over 25 different kinds...I have purchased every Sullcandy type of headphone up to the price of the full-metal jacket and I have to say, FMJ is the biggest let down of all. Terrible lows, Terrible mids, but good quality highs. The hardware is poorly designed. It looks cool but causes any movement of the cord to be heard in the headphones. Obviously I am not talking about working out, I mean walking from class to class step by step "thud, thud thud..." For the price you are paying, terrible product. Go with Jbuds J3 or J4 (which both are cheaper/better) or any headphone from Klipsch.
I dont know what people are talking about...
i got the chrome ones and they sound great. they have lasted me a pretty long time, i am still using them and enjoying them every time i use them. i have an ipod nano and no iphone, so they still work. i don't use the mic, but if you press the little button while it is in a ipod it pauses the song, plays it, plays the next song if you press it twice and if you press it three times it replays the song. overall i love them, good bass.
I will never buy another pair of Skullcandy headphones ever again. This is my second pair of FMJ's. Both sets broke very quickly and I was very gentle with them. They're waaaay too fragile. Don't waste your money.
As durable as that oil rig in the Gulf
These things are cool to look at, just don't ever touch them. If you do they will immediately stop working. I have owned 3 pairs and after going through the hassle of getting the 3rd pair, I made a resolution to stop purchasing skullcandy products altogether. I bought a $10 pair of maxell buds and they have lasted me 4 months so far. Skullcandy, get your $%^& together!
