Damned straight. Now that I'm 14, I understand headphones. YAY FOR BEYERS

A kid in my school has a set of Skulls, but he's like "I SKATEBOARD!" so that entitles him to a pair. Still better then the snobs who are addicted to iBuds. Claim it to be the best sound they've ever heard... iPod's a crappy device anyways (Except for the iTouch, I love TapTap Dance. It's like FLAC!)

Skullcandy = A fart machine and a $0.99 store headset had a retard baby fetus.

Btw, today I told someone I had $250 headphones. His response: You got Bose?

I've always had an irrational hatred for Skullcandys ever since their inception a few years ago. Unfortunately I have never had anyone that shared this viewpoint with me until I came here. I am grateful.

That and you guys took everything I wanted to say already.

Thank you. That statement sums it up. Irrational is the correct word. Every now and then these topics pop up about Skullcandy and everyone makes a fool out of themselves with the childish, irrational deceased equine flogging. And a good majority of the comments are worthless, as they are from individuals who have never even heard Skullcandy headphones before.

I have heard the Skullcandy in-ears before, they really are not as bad as some make them out to be. The Ink'd are not terrible for $9.99 and are a huge improvement over the ipod stock earbuds, plus they are isolating.

I haven't heard the Skullcandy full size cans before, so I'll refrain from making a comment either way on them.

yes, I read alot of skullcandy bashing, and if I could have heard my RE2's before I bought them I would have kept the skull candy's and just waited and grabbed something else. the bass on the skullcandys are nice. Like I said in another post the RE2's sounded more crisp and clean but bass wise sounded like an alarm clock radio compared to a house stereo. For what they cost they are good and thats most likely why kids use them, because they dont have jobs/money of there own. I want to learn more about different IEM's and full size headphones and am open to advice. I just miss the BASS.
If someone can point out something with both heavy bass and nice sq please tell me. Oh I listen to music at work but size still is not an issue

I own them. I have done thorough comparisons. I find them to actually be as bad as or worse than iBuds. The only improvements over iBuds I was able to find were comfort, isolation, and durability (damn those iBuds and them dying randomly left and right). For $10, I find the Sony MDR-J10 to be the best buy. They still aren't good, but we're talking about ten measly dollars here.

Nothing can be worse than the ipod buds. The SC buds are more comfortable, isolate and are durable. Plus, SQ is better. I-buds always sound tinny whereas the SC buds actually have bass. Plus, $9.99 is a decent price for the Ink'd, compared to the almost $30 for replacement ibuds at the Apple Store website. (Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic - Apple Store (U.S.)).

SC are wild, more companies should have more wilder designs.
post #56 of 202
I agree that more companies should cater to a more stylistic side of headphones, but not at the expense of soundquality

I think Audio-Technica and Beyerdynamic both do this in their own way (AT has woodies, Beyer has Manufaktur), but I'd still love to see some crazy multi-colour Sennheisers or uniquely skinned AKGs

not like it'd impact sound quality, or drive the price up all that much

Yeah, Skullcandy just turns me off when I see it. Cheap looking plastic, overly bright colors. They remind me of a 10 year old that just went to Toys-R-Us. When I listen to them, they put so much emphasis on bass that it completely drowns out any hope of having an accurate experience.

For my IEM's, I currently have the Super.Fi 5 Pro's...they're absolutley great in-ears, some of the best. But since they're not "Skull Candy!" everyone on campus thinks they're cheap. Pah.
post #58 of 202
I don't understand what's the beef with this (skullcandy) or the unmentionable (Bose)... they both cater to a certain base of customers. Either one of them in terms of SQ is an improvement over stock/oem ear buds included with most electronics. However their sound/value might be skewed, i.e. a lot of money for not a lot of SQ. Ignorance is bliss when it comes to music, since if you haven't heard something better... usually what you're listening to is pretty good.

I had the similar experience when first upgrading from ipod earbuds to Shure E2... I thought they were a godsend of music quality. I'd make this comparison, though it might not be a good one:

You can have Ferrari F430 for $200,000 or a Chevy Z06 for $60,000 both have similar power performance... you can be happy with either one, but one might want to spend more money on the name or other features.

When I was 13 I bought some Alessandro MS1's. I also bought them to school along with my GoVibe V6.

But I am probably a minority.

you're also probably the only 15 year old (going on your sig) that even knows what Stax Lambda's are, let alone can appreciate them

not at all saying this is a bad thing, but I am saying minority is probably an understatement


cheers
