For anyone thinking that Skullcandy actually "creates", "manufactures", "tunes", or "tweaks" headphones, this might be a good read to start: http://gizmodo.com/5617200/the-secret-scam-of-cheap-earbuds
Just read the article. It's really good, I think you should make a thread with it. I would gladly do it, but I think you should since you brought this to Head-Fi.
I would say it's shocking, but sadly I expected something like this from Skullcandy and most other budget headphone companies.
