ipod buds should not be a bench mark in audio excellence.

Nice fashion accessory?

If you want to be different get a pair of Audio Technica Camo cans or something?

It's all in the name..

Skull candy


It's candy for your skull. They look pretty and shit.

If they were called 'Expert good quality and sound headphones' you'd probably be a bit more safe.

I have a pair for snowboarding. They have a lifetime 'you break these in any fashion' warranty.

They don't sound that great, but I simply don't worry about messing them up if I do several flips and faceplant.

those snoop dog headphones look like they would last the whole of about 3 and a half seconds judging by that swivel attachment between the headband and white earcup attachment.

They changed it, so now it's:

Personal preference,,,I think...I'm sure other threads refer to peoples dislike of HD-25's. Small Cans, not enough isolation, etc. Each to their own.

It's amusing this thread nonetheless...so many variations of a shithouse headphone.

AHhhhh A mate of mine got given a pair of Skull Candy headphones for some promo thingy. He laughingly took them (So ugly, Blue with white ear pads) That same week his HD25s broke and he had to play with the Skull Candys. I let him play one track before I handed him mine... You can only laugh at your bud for so long before the pity takes over.
