i would get some sun tan lotion, you´re about to get flamed badly,

btw, skullcandy is one of the worst brands out there, compleatly centered on visual design, no audio quality what so ever, for cheap deep bass, maybe the PX100 would serve you better,

Simply put, no. What's your budget?
post #4 of 76
PX100s are very good. If you want something a bit bigger then the Grado SR-60. I own both.

No. Not at all.

What's your budget? Open or closed cans? Portable?

skullcandy isnt bad for their in ear earbuds, but the lowriders are their worst headphones. your'e not getting flamed, i know this from experience. they're extreamly cheap feeling and feel like they are gonna fall off your head when you move around. and the sound is terrible. they advertise that they have tons of bass but they really sound like a tin can. even my ipod earbuds had more bass. lol

if you want something cheap and good, get the ksc75s.

For less than the price of lowriders you can get Koss Portapros. They have excellent bass for the money and are extremely comfortable. I also have a pair of Grado SR60i phones which sound great but don't travel as nice.

No. Skullcandy ingests fecal matter and orally copulates with barnyard animals.

But you've come to the right place. Read the threads and ask questions. There are good headphones out there and you'll learn about them. Just don't buy Skullcandys.

hahaha very nicely put... From my own very limited headphone experience, I will join the chorus and, declare them pants. Koss Portapros I am enjoying immensely, for only a £30 outlay and they come with a lifetime guarantee! Tho you've really gotta be able to pull of the 80's styling.... and not mind the leakage...

I currently own some Sullcandy Lowriders. I bought them for my girlfriend to use. They are THE absolute worst headphones I have ever owned. I actually like some of their IEMs. Not much quality, but exciting for the buck.

the pro dj series is actually not half bad in terms of quality, but the price for such a thing is 2-3x what I would feel comfy paying USED

if you can land the pro dj for like 50 bucks, its worth it. Its pretty good. But I'd paint the crap out of it so nobody ever knows im wearing a skullcandy...which is exactly what i did hehe

All I know is that the 2XL "Grills Collection" Spoke IEM's are fairly decent for $10.

I have no idea about anything else from Sullcandy.
