Pros: Silicon tips, strong bass, efficient, wire does not tangle or kink easily

Cons: too much bass, peaky mids, peaky highs

Price and Durability: For 7 US Dollars shipped to my house these are the best phones in the price point.  I stepped on them one time- the green paint slightly chipped but the ink'd did not break at all.  I have snagged the wire mildly a few times and kinked the wire near the jack in my pocket plenty- no negative consequences thus far.  Frequently used on my HTC Mytouch slide.

 

Comfort:  The included small tips fit excellent- all things considered.  I was wary of skulls being imprinted into my ear canal because of the design, and worried of discomfort from it but have not noticed any even after multiple hours in.  You can tug on the wire and they won't pop out without a fight.

 

Sound:  Now some presence of bass can be nice-  This is a product for younger ears and/or bargain shopping.  They can create a few bass notes at one time.  It feels like these headphones have their favorite mid and high zones and don't care what the music has to say.  Tune eq settings to attempt compensation.

 

Isolation:  Not bad.  I've used these on my motorcycle plenty of times.  Also have used long boarding.  You will hear the wire rub your shirt during movement.

 

Design: The compact design makes the the ink'd friendly for helmets.  The green pearl paint is sweet.  Look great while you hear decent.  SK managed to get skulls on the tips, plus and housing.  No left or right labeling, no mic to distinguish.  Gold plated plug.

 

Overall:  Great for the money.  Decently durable and sound that does not disappoint.  If a thief grabbed these out of your ears, ran away, slipped on a half used mustard packet as he was getting away, fell and lost a tooth- you will have maximized these headphones value better than an inside trader.
