Depends on the seal you get. 

First time I auditioned them I thought "LIES!!! these are awful!" ... and then I pushed them onto my ears for a better seal and they sounded EXCELLENT.

But no matter which position I tried, I could not get the same seal or sound in any position without using my hands. I could have really liked them but they just don't work on my below-average size ears.

Sony XB500- tried at Best Buy. May have been broken- just awful!

Hands down, the Arctic Cooling p402bt headphones were the most effective way to make me want to rip something from my head and throw it across the room.

Imagine beats, but through a pillow. When mids did come through at any volume, it was as if they were in a large tile room. I sent them back so fast....

One of the very worst "audiophile" headphones I've heard has to be the Shure SRH940s. Simply a horrible-treble happy mess!

Wait, the 440 are good. How bad can't he 940 really be?

To paraphrase Quentin Tarantino, to some people, everything but Cristal is piss. (Video NSFW)

I have a new ones. My friend asked me to fix them for him. They are a very old pair of on ear headphones: Midland Deluxe. They really sound really bad, but retain their cool retro look.

I prefer the SRH840s FWIW.

ED10 has got to be the worst sounding headphone in the world above $1000. It's so bright, thin, artificial and nasal sounding...

This isn't the worst I've ever heard, but it's the worst I've heard this year. I just recently auditioned it.

(My reasoning for auditioning it was that I have a bit of love for the Panasonic RP-HTX7, so I thought "hey, this should be alright"....)

 

The Panasonic RP-HXD7WE.... good lord. Diabolical doesn't come close. It's just a mess. How could they even let such a bad headphone out into the wild. 

Did they do ZERO consumer testing? Were they designed and built by 12 year old....... apes? 

 

I've never heard so much honky echoey bass in my life. It's like you're literally listening to the acoustic properties of the extra large plastic shells they're housed in. 

If you ever see these don't even bother. If you ever see them on someone's head, pray unto them a quick painless death.

So in short the best thing that I've experienced from skull candy is actually a bottle opener.

 

Those were my first pair of headphones, I actually loved em :(
