I recieved my first set as a birthday gift and fell in love with them instantly. They are ultra comfortable, awesome looking, and the sound quality blows me away. Unfortunately, some b*&%h decided that she was going to steal them after I let her use them when she spent the night so I now have to buy new ones. I'm super glad I stumbled across this site because they don't carry them in stores anymore and I would probably cry if I couldn't replace them.
does this pair of headphones come with an inline mic? thats one of the big reasons i ordered this and i just assumed it does since it does off the actual skullcandy site.

All of the new 2011 colors come with an in-line microphone and control switch. The colors labeled as 2010 do not.

i loves these headphones. over the past 3 months ive been through over five different headphones.from earpollution to sprayground.when i came across the skullcandys i didnt know what to think. i went all over the internet looking for reviews and people just seemed to not have the the ability to make up their minds,so i went and made up my mind and bought them and im glad i did.i got them at newbury comics for only $54.99 and they come with everything you need .A small bag to carry them in,replacable ear pads ,a stereo adapter plug and a bottle opener ...just in case .well hope this helped if you cant make up your mind take my advice and buy them, its worth the money

I personally didn't like the Hesh much but these will sound similar, just be more comfortable. You need to just step it up and grab the Aviators, sound and feel amazing.

The colors are a little skewed because I was too lazy to set the white balance but the blue should blend pretty well with all your other blue stuff, companies don't seem to deviate very much when it comes to turquoise
Also they are pretty low profile as far as over ear's go. I'd like em to lay a little lower for boarding but what you gonna do
It's a bottle opener...for beer or bottled coke.

Build quality out of the box is a bummer. I've had the SK Pros, Skullcrushers, Lowriders, Ti's, Icons 1 & 2 and they all felt more solid than these, these feel very hollow and cheap. How much that matters has yet to be seen and does do a good job of keeping weight down
These aren't very comfortable, but it's because they have a tight grip and holding power almost equal to the Icons, a huge advantage over the SK Pros and you wont have to put your goggle strap over these for them to stay put
Sound quality is as I expected; pretty bad, borderline terrible. Very non immersive and weak...but that's exactly what I expected (any WeSC headphone will do you better if you want good sound, the Oboe's rock)
High five to Skullcandy for the color ways this year, I'm glad that they opted for some solid colors instead of previously childish patterns, purely my opinion but I turned into a WeSC convert until these awesome styles came out
Whats the red flap on my gi black headphones for? It feels like there is something inside of them

I'm pretty sure the stock photos are prototype mock-ups and not even photographs, and definitely not true to the product
Graphic on cans is extruded and much larger
Skullcandy lettering extruded on headband
Cheap small hinges instead of the burly ones in the stock photo, they are also navy colored
Velcro strap/bottle opener is on the other side
Can shape is in the traditional low profile GI shape instead of the conical TI shape that's in the stock photo
Cord is red and blue
Headband does not have glittery texture
The stock photo is basically the old Ti's with the new colors, check out Skullcandy's site for some more photos of the real headphones
Stock photos should die
The skullcrushers are for if you like alot of bass.The gi's are in my opinion only good if you get the ones with the boom mic for gaming.I think you would like the hesh better, they have the 50mm speaker & the gi's only have the 40mm.But if you have the extra money yo could get the DJ style.

I'm personally a fan of Skullcandy especially because the style and range of colors for the cans are awesome but I probably won't buy another set of GI headphones... I've gone through two sets now. Both of mine have lasted a year and a half each and the same thing has happened. The plastic for the adjuster bar is quite thin and has a tendency to crack and break. It's a shame too since I love the style and these were very comfortable. The sound is decent for their size.
I wouldn't recommend these to anyone but if you must get them, I recommend that treat them gently. I was rough with my first pair, hitting the slopes and wearing them all the time. I only used the second pair in my dorm and they still broke after the same amount of time. Note, they have less chance of breaking if you don't pull out the adjustment at all but that's determined by your head size.
Pros: Decent sound. Built-in volume adjustment. Sweet extras. Skullcandy look/style.
Cons: Durability. Very weak construction...plastic tends to break around adjuster.
On the Hesh: Basically same headphones but with more powerful drivers. Same durability issues.
I've tried most of Skullcandy's products so hit me up if you have any questions.
Whats better the Hesh or GIs, Im getting them to board with but mainly walk around campus on the weekdays

would this work with and apple ipod touch 3g?
And whats the best skullcandy to but for about 50-60$ or less?
November 21, 2010
Just about any headphones ever made will work with your iPod and I've heard that the best for cheap are the hesh, but if you're looking at this price I would definitely buy the Skullcrushers instead, they're definitely better than the G.I's (I have both so that's speaking first hand)

Do these have a shorter chord that can be made longer with an adapter like the hesh's or is it all one piece?
August 2, 2010
Mine is all one piece but they're part of the DB collection, and skullcandy's site leads me to believe that the cords are different (DB one's have a mic/remote) depending on the model (DB/Non-DB)

The Skullcandy GI has been reliable for my usage, which for the most part has been indoors, at a computer. The sound has been consistentno shorts or anything like that. The padding on the padding has cracked but it's still in tact. They include a unique Skullcandy branded bottle opener which tucks neatly into the its own integrated slot on the band or can be attached to your keychain.
The adjustability allows the GI to fit big melons and small domes alike (as you can see).
Overall, they're not much to write home about but they haven't failed me either. I can assure they're better than other brands 'phones in this price range.
Whats better about the GI's than the Hesh skull candies?

I second that, I love my Hesh's, and would stand by them over these any day, especially since i got mine off whiskey for less than half the price of these.

nothing. the GI's have a little clearer sound. but the Hesh have better bass and more power (50mm vs 40mm drivers) that being said, these do look sick and are more comfortable than the Hesh. I owned both and if i were u id def get the hesh. in my mind, the hesh are almost on par wit the SK Pros

this is good for wearing it and listening to music. its good for wakling around with it. it looks dope fosho. the extras it comes with is dope to. its kindof uncomfy.but for reals the material sucks. if u have a small haed your good but if not u dont wanna get it. pne side of the adjustable length fell off. and the other side started to show a crack. small head good big head dont get it. i didnt beat it up or anything. i only recommend this to someone with a smallish head 7 1/4 thats gunna take care of it.
They are considered over ear headphones so the cushions are on the bigger side.

If you're looking for something to compliment your hat this season, and have $70+ to blow, then these may work for you. Sound quality is not good, or even decent, on these cans compared to what the same money would get you with another brand. Durability is also suspect in my opinion. For this price range, the Sennheiser HD280 closed back headphones are the best value. They are built like a tank, all replaceable parts, etc. They will last. And they're black, so you can paint them any color or design you want and not look like every other hooligan on the mountain with their parent's money.

I wear these every day for like six hours straight while I'm at work. They're always comfortable even if I end up sliding it off one of my ears. Sometimes I wear them when I'm not even listening to music just because I forget that they are there. Music quality is totally decent too.
