Definitely recommend these headphones! sound quality is sick and the designs are awesome. I've never had a more comfortable and useful set of headphones that work with skype, ipods, iphones, and basically everything else. They do have black/gray headphones that are less striking. But you can get black headphones from any manufacturer. These headphones are for those who want to stand out in a crowd. One more thing, I am a sucker for bass, and would like some headphones with wonderful bass response, but without sacrificing overall sound quality. I'll be buying some more really soon!!
