Skullcandy Ink'd Review (yes, I'm serious) - Page 5

post #61 of 71
+1 on customer service...I had a pair if these that were my gym/doing stuff around the house pair that got some kind of loose wire issue so they started cutting in/out if I moved a certain way (this was after probably a year or more of solid use)..I jumped on there website and in about 5 mins I and a shipping label to send them back for warranty claim. About 3 days later I had confirmation that I had a credit for a new pair through the website. About 3 mor days later I had a new pair of the ink2's in my mailbox.

For me the sound quality is pretty good ( good clarity and decent bass and balance). Better than other "non audiophile" IEMs I've had, although I have limited experience. I know Skullcandy and Beats are bad words on this forum, but these are pretty good and not way overpriced.

As noted on the previous page, and the page before that:

My son is rough as hell on his headphones - I bought him a set of Titans for like $19 on Amazon - they went bad and they gave us $50 credit - they were out of Titans, so I got him a sale pair of FMJ's for $30 - then a pair of Ink'd for the other 20 - the FMJ's just went bad - and they gave us $70 credit (gotta love the warranty) - so now he has a $50 pair of Fix'd IEM's and I ordered a $20 pair of on-the-ear Lowriders for my daughter (I still have the new pair of ink'd) 

 

I keep trying to get rid of these things, but they keep giving me more of them! The multiply like rabbits!

 

EDIT: My daughter won't touch the Ink'd - she has a lovely pair of pink SHE3590's - and she can tell the difference - not sure about my son... lol.

It was very hard to get my hands on 2013 Ink'd buds when this review was posted on 8/25/2009.

*sigh* it seems like nobody pays attention to dates and keep responding to threads that are several years old as if they were posted a couple weeks ago.

I already had a pair of Skullcandys and when it was time to buy a new pair I went straight to the Ink'd 2.

After I ordered them online I saw lots of negative comments and I honestly was scared I had done a mistake.

After recieving them and tried them I honestly don't know what the problem is. They sound awesome and are totally worthed for €14 a pair.

The Urbeats by Dr Dre don't even have half rhe sound quality of these.

I HONESTLY RECOMMEND THESE IF YOU WANT HIGH QUALIRY FOR A CHEAP PRICE!!!!!!!!!

Yeah I know right? ...wait...

I am responding to this since I don't want to make a new thread about these.

 

But one thing I'm confused about, is that these show up as being discontinued on amazon. I bought a new pair in Target, as I wanted a cheap pair of throw around buds for just working out and such.

 

I have to differ a little about the sound of these, as I'm actually super impressed. To me they sound more than OK. I was taken aback, since my go to 'phones for quite some time have either been my Senny PX 100 and 200 ii or a pair of old audio technica's that they don't make anymore that I freakin' love. I also have a pair of Bose phones that I actually think sound pretty good (yeah yeah I know, bose sucks yadda yadda).

 

These kind of blow me away. They obviously sound a little small and congested, but outward instrument spacing is really great. Like, I can hear instruments as though they are coming from a point in space away from me on a horizontal place, but it sounds sort of like the sound is coming in through a small channel or tube, if that makes any sense at all. Like, I can hear stuff as coming from the left and right from some distance but not in front or behind. But still, impressive soundstage for ear buds.

 

Balance is fantastic. Very tight and controlled bass with lots of impact, clear and sharp mid range, good highs, although the high range gets a bit if sibilance to it. I find it's actually nice though, as it adds some emphasis to the edge of sounds and articulation, and things like the strumming of acoustic guitar strings come through the mix well because of it. Drums sound really sharp and clear on these.

 

I find myself using these a lot more than I originally thought I would. They stay in my ears pretty well too, although I do sometimes have to adjust them.

 

I don't know if I've gone mad or what, but these are really good to me. I could be losing my hearing perhaps. Anyway, overall, I can tell I'm listening to small little speakers but the sound is really good otherwise.

Wait hold on a sec here, this sounds important. Can you maybe explain just what the hell is going on here? I've returned literally TONS OF CRAP (figuratively speaking) rto Q, qaunand I have never heard of this magical program you seembto be taking part in.

So what is it exactly, and how do I sign up?

Obviously you're not taking proper advantage. Give me a Week in this "double your money or double the cash back" program and I'll never have to work again! I can't even go broke from buying and returning headphones, since that's apparently how I'll make my fortune in the first place!
