Flat out, these bad boys were made for snowboarding w/out a helmet. For snowboarding they are perfect. Like others have said, they will slip off your head if they are not secured by goggles or wearing a baseball cap underneath. If you want all around headphones, i would look elsewhere, for snowboarding these are the bees knees. You might be able to fit these under a helmet that has no padding (Capix wakeskate). I have a capix wakeskate lid but i keep the padding in and these headphones do not fit underneath comfortably.

Ok, so everyone says they slip off and I should not get them. I got them anyway, I think they are sweet as milk chocolate, and I love chocolate. Let's do a breakdown,
Nylon cord - Smart idea, less tension breaks because its braided, that means no fading in and out after the jack has been bent too much.
Soft headband- It fits nicer on your head and you don't get those plastic indent feeling from wearing them too tight.
Soft ear pads- They are super soft, feel great on your ear, don't irritate like in ear buds can.
Mic- Why not have a mic, how you going to talk without it?
Style- Let's face it, they look ill.
Slippery(?)- They can be fickle about how they stay on your head, wearing a hat seems to help induce a higher coefficient of friction to the pair, making their grip tighter.
SO, if you have problems with these it is with your fashion not the headphones.
These bump sound like your grandma bumps gospel on sundays, and look just as good.

I would have given these headphones 5 stars, but like some previous reviews, I found that they are pretty useless for just cruising around, skating etc due to them not gripping your head too well and slipping off. However the main purpose i bought them for is snowboarding, and for this purpose, they are rad. Just put your goggles over the top to lock them in place and then try to look as steezy as possible.
Sound quality is pretty good for a $30 pair of headphones.
Just for everything in general (skating, boarding, chillin) should I go with the icon 2 or the icon soft? Just trying to decide.

which icons should i get soft or the reguler ones?

The soft is better if your using it skiing or snowboarding, the normal it just strait up plastic headphones.

Sound Quality= Average
Durability= Below Average (two left speakers have blown out on both my pairs and the wire is beginning to unwind.
Comfort= Above average but yeah they dont stick on your head at all,at least not mine.
Bottom line is that i think im done with skullcandy and am gonna try some other company
If my helmet is kind of tight, will the Icon Soft fit under ?

I don't know why some people complain about the lowriders they are way much better than these. I gotta say that yeah, they have a very good sound quality but not better and the soft version of the icons is more comfortable than the normal ones (if you are not wearing a hat)but the headband it's annoying after a while.
Bottom line: an average headphones, if you ask me.
Will these headphones fit under a snowboarding helmit? I had long hair and recently buzzed it off so my helmit is a little bug anyways...

Well, depending on the exact room between your noggin and the helmet, they could, but...
putting something between your helmet and your head could interfere in the performance of the helmet. Helmets are designed to work close to your skull! I rock the full metal jacket's...tons of bass, crisp highs, and they hide right in your ears! If you have space in your helmet, the safest way would be to wear a light beenine, or even add more foam to your helmet.
Hope I helped shed some light, homey

These headphones are great for snowboarding BUT nothing else at all. the soft fit makes them unnoticable on your head but they also fall off easier. just put your goggle strap over the headphones and your good to go. sound quality is decent but nothing special. when your just listening to music these headphones WILL NOT stay on your head. I would reccomend these for the mountain definateley but if you dont ride dont pick theses up. get the hesh if your just jammin.
Are they really worth the extra money? or should i get the regular icons?

i have to disagree with both erik wilson and kylie. While i have had some skull candy head phone that have broken like the very large ones i have also had a pair of icons for two years now and they have held up just fine. I ride 125 days a year and have taken numerous hard wrecks with broken goggles but the headphones have held up. I would 100% recommend buying the icons or the icon soft. they will last for ever

personally i think Erik Wilson is a rare case. (Sorry) I also recommened staying away from Skullcandy if you want a pair of headphones that will last. I own skullcandys for the sole fact of the lifetime warrenty. If they didn't have that I would have switched brands ages ago. I replace my skullcandies about once every 2-3 months for free and have never had a problem getting a hold of the warrenty people. But if you are looking for sometihng that lasts, go with a more mainstream brand like Sony (never ever phillips! they suck). They may not be as stylish but they are much better

I have regular icons and they have broken
I'd recommend staying away from skullcandy all together.
I've had nothing but problems from their products.
all they do is break and i cant even get customer service to respond to my emails.

I bought a pair of regular icons and then these. i didnt know that the "soft" also implied that the plastic band that goes over your head is softer too. which means they dont hug your head hardly at all. they barely stay on my head walking around less alone riding or skating. and to add to it the foamy thing that goes over each speaker isnt foam on these. its some really smooth nice feeling cloth. feels nice but just contributes more to them sliding off. definitly skip out on these. the regular icons have much better hold and grip on your head. the only good thing about these is the nylon braided cord.
