I bought the white/chrome. This is the third pair of Smokin Buds I've purchased. This pair didn't have the inline volume control that I have on my other ones and that I was expecting. Not worth the shipping to return them. But otherwise quality earbuds.

These headphones have really good sound quality and awesome bass response. Only let down is there not very durable (the cord got pulled out of the connector and one of the wires snapped and now my right bud doesnt work) but the rasta looks sweet and their really cheap ($25!). If you want some good and cheap headphones, go for the Smokin' Buds.
Do these headphones transfer noise to your ear from rubbing the cords or them brushing against something? Because the ink'd models do and it's really annoying.

These headphones are cheap, as is the quality of them, but that's totally what I expected when I got them. I must say though, I am not at all disapointed by them. They are loud, sounds are good enough for just going for a ride or hanging around my pad. The different size inserts are good, my ears need the small ones, but they still tend to get sore after a couple hours of use. Overall though, for the price I paid, I can't complain, they are good enough to own, yet cheap enough to not care when they break.

I got these earbuds as a birthday present in the green/black color. They look sweet, the sound quality is great, and they don't fall out of your ears when your doing something crazy like snowskating on iceplant. Overall they are a great deal for the price and i wouldn't go anywere without them.
"The braided nylon cord adds durability, and the included emergency bottle opener..."
Do these have either of those things?

Same here. I have big rasta Ti headphones that came with a hidden bottle opener, but these do not.

I didn't get a bottle opener either.

I just picked up a new pair of these yesterday at best buy, after snapping the con my old ones. They didn't come with a bottle opener and the cords don't look woven, unless it's under the rubber.

i see that everyone else has problems with material quality, but I have not. I have had these headphones for a couple years now and have used them very often, and they still sound/look just as good as the day I got them. The bass response is pretty good for the price/style headphone, and the volume remote is a nice luxury. In my personal experience, these are a great pair of headphones

Not impressed with these earbuds at all.
There's almost zero bass coming through these headphones, it's an all-treble experience. The volume control slide has almost no resistance to it and moves up and down if you look at it the wrong way. I actually turned it to loud and wrapped it in duct tape to stop it from moving around while riding.
They come with 3 sizes of removable inserts, and maybe it's just me but none of them seem to fit very well. The large ones stretch out my ears and are super uncomfortable while the 2 smaller sizes won't stay in my ears. Also the rubber inserts make this popping sound whenever I move the earbud around in my ear which is irritating and super loud to the point of causing pain in the inner ear.
I suggest you save yourself the $20 and buy a better quality earbud if you want clean sound and comfort, because the smokin' buds offer neither. Mine have already hit the trash can.

These are great for snowboarding I just started last season so i fell a lot but these never fell out if you keep the chords under your jacket and sweater and everything they will never get tangled. I also like how they isolate all sound and if I'm out with a friend i can just take one headphone out
Anyway they are awesome headphones and I recommend them

ummm i had these headphones for about a month then they stopped working. good headphones tho great bass and you cant hear any outside noise. the buds are really comfertable. Im using Avios now and their pretty good im think im going to get WESC oboes or congas for my birthday

I dont know why people have good reviews on these headphones...skullcandys are pretty good in style, but their sound sucks. Every level of sound (low, mid, high) are muffled and it has no bass at all. If you compare the sound with better earbuds you will definitely notice the difference. If you want some bass for your headphones DO NOT GET THIS. I do not recommend it for anyone. I would recommend meelectronics m6. Their $20 on amazon and they are so worth the price.

For the price they are pretty good. They eliminate most outside noise. I use them while I ride, but also while I run. I don't like them much for running. When the cord hits something(like my arm), it makes a thumping noise. They stay in fine until I start to break a sweat, then they fall out. Either invest in a more expensive pair, or pay the same price by going through multiple sets of these. They don't last that long.

My buddy left these outside of my apartment last fall before a big snow storm. We couldn't find them the next day and figured they were lost. Found them in the spring. After being outside in the snow and rain for 5 months they were still pumping out sound. Fantastic buds.

These buds are nice, and im usually nice when it comes to reviews, but... I bought these 2 months ago on WhiskeyMilita and they look cool, sound good, but they're aren't very comfortable, and after only 2 months the right bud just completely fell apart. I take very good care of them, always keep them in the little bag, and today the bud just fell out and no sound comes out. Good for the price, just don't expect much.

They work great at first, but do not last for very long. The metal ring base around the ear piece fell off after a few weeks. The ear pieces come off super easy. I have to be gently if I'm pulling them out of my pocket.
I wouldn't pay more than $10 for this thing.

They look cool, but I must say I went from a marginally more expensive set of S0ny ear buds that sounded WAY crisper and clearer, to these. The s0nys were way better sounding, but my left one broke and I bought these on recommendation from a friend. Big mistake, as the sound quality is so muddy. They also broke really shortly after buying them and I did not even abuse them or use them much. DO NOT BUY THESE IF YOU LIKE GOOD SOUND QUALITY, but BUY THEM IF YOU LIKE MUDDY BASS. I guess for 29.00 they are O.K., at best.

Up until now I have loved these buds. Skull Candy needs to step it up and spring for longer lasting material though. On both buds where it has the "R" and "L", has broken off on both just below the speaker. The cord has cracked and wire is exposed, constantly snagging on my shirt while I am riding my bike.
The stock ear fittings that come with these completely blow. They slipped out of my ears all the time, and I have tried all 3 sizes. Eventually they ended up cracking and falling apart. I sprung for the fitted foam ear fittings and the sound quality jumped up 3 fold. Your ears dont hurt after long duration of wearing them and they block out all surrounding noise. I definitely recommend these for work. I just wish they came with the foam ear bit instead of these sub-par rubber ones.

These earbuds sound ok for the price, but they don't last long. I haven't had any of mine go bad yet, but I also don't use them very much. My brother has had about 5 pairs go bad, but Skullcandy has a lifetime warranty so when they stop working he just takes them into Skullcandy and they give him a new pair! If you don't live near Skullcandy in Utah or Washington state, then you can go onto Skullcandy.com and go through their warrant there and mail them in and you will get the most up to date ones!

I own multiple pairs of the Smokin' Buds and they sound great and have really good sound quality for the price! My only complaint is they don't fit in really small ears like mine very well.
It is true that they will eventually break/stop working, but when that happens, simply send them to Skullcandy and they will send you the most up to date pair for free with their Lifetime Warranty! You can't go wrong with that! Beware that if you smash them or something where it is your fault they broke you will only get %50 off your replacement pair from Skullcandy, but if they break on their own, Skullcandy will replace them for free!

These headphones are a great buy for the money. I can ski with them in but can't run with them because they fall out. The only bummer is the little silicone ear pieces fall off and I end up losing them. When I need to use them at work I can pretty much tune out everyone around me, only bummer is that no one notices that I have them in. Maybe I should rethink my strategy...
