Latest reviews

Pros: Descent bass for the price, really cheap
Cons: Sound isn't very good, They fall out of your ears
First of all, I gave these a 3 star mostly for their price. At about 9 bucks they are about the cheapest headphones around. I mean, who is going to pass up a deal like that. They are dirt cheap and really easy to find at about any store you can name. But you aren't reading this review just for there price. Lets check em out.
 
Sound quality
  If your looking at from an audiphile's point of view, their pretty bad. I actually had to turn up the volume pretty loud to get much out of them. The mids and highs are pretty bad. The whole sound sounds like I am listening through a long tube. They are not very good in the sound department needless to say. The bass does sometimes drop but It can also be at really odd times and at random times doing the song. That's fine in bass heavy music but It sounds really weird in a song that doesn't have much bass like metal and hard rock
 
Comfort
   The only real problem I had with them is when they fall out. I would NOT recommend these to anyone who would be using them to work out in. I don't know if its just my ears but I still wouldn't recommend them to people that would be using them for physical activities. They feel pretty natural after a while of having them in and you don't even know you are wearing them after a while.
 
Durability
  I have had them for about 7 months now and they are still working just fine. Nothing has ever broke on them and the sound is still the same that it was 7 months ago.
 
Cost
  What do I even have to say here. THEY ARE 9 BUCKS! If you just want some cheap headphones to get your jams on and you don't really care about sound that much, these are definitely your best bet.
 
Overall
  Among the audiophile community, skullcandys are generally disliked. They get a bad rap for not having great sound and/or comfort. I somewhat disagree with that. I do agree that they are more of a fashion piece than a great listening headphone( like beats). I disagree that all skullcandys are bad. I have had some pretty good skullcandys over the years and they have done pretty well overall. But back on topic about these. If you are trying to decide what headphones to get and you want to compare these to other headphones on the market. You just can't. There is nothing like these on the market. Again, THEY ARE 9 BUCKS! I also disagree with the people that say these headphones are just junk. What do you expect for 9 bucks. Not $1,000 Grados that's for sure. To sum things up, if you are thinking about getting them. Just get theme. THEY ARE ONLY 9 BUCKS. Its not like you will be losing a lot of money on them. Just buy them and give em a try.

lol I don't like correcting this stuff but *audiophile if you want to use that term. :p Sorry, it was bothering me.
Pros: Silicon tips, strong bass, efficient, wire does not tangle or kink easily
Cons: too much bass, peaky mids, peaky highs
Price and Durability: For 7 US Dollars shipped to my house these are the best phones in the price point.  I stepped on them one time- the green paint slightly chipped but the ink'd did not break at all.  I have snagged the wire mildly a few times and kinked the wire near the jack in my pocket plenty- no negative consequences thus far.  Frequently used on my HTC Mytouch slide.
 
Comfort:  The included small tips fit excellent- all things considered.  I was wary of skulls being imprinted into my ear canal because of the design, and worried of discomfort from it but have not noticed any even after multiple hours in.  You can tug on the wire and they won't pop out without a fight.
 
Sound:  Now some presence of bass can be nice-  This is a product for younger ears and/or bargain shopping.  They can create a few bass notes at one time.  It feels like these headphones have their favorite mid and high zones and don't care what the music has to say.  Tune eq settings to attempt compensation.
 
Isolation:  Not bad.  I've used these on my motorcycle plenty of times.  Also have used long boarding.  You will hear the wire rub your shirt during movement.
 
Design: The compact design makes the the ink'd friendly for helmets.  The green pearl paint is sweet.  Look great while you hear decent.  SK managed to get skulls on the tips, plus and housing.  No left or right labeling, no mic to distinguish.  Gold plated plug.
 
Overall:  Great for the money.  Decently durable and sound that does not disappoint.  If a thief grabbed these out of your ears, ran away, slipped on a half used mustard packet as he was getting away, fell and lost a tooth- you will have maximized these headphones value better than an inside trader.
Pros: Cheap
Cons: They're Junk
To start off, they fell out of my ears all the time because of design, not the rubber parts but the bud itself is just weird. The plug design ruined my Zune jack because the plug comes straight out and only one side works on my Zune now. Do not buy these and use without a L shaped plug adapter. Go with some others, Sony or Phillips worked as cheap bike riding ear buds.

I used to have the mokin buds and I agree with this statement. I haven't tried the ink'd though. I avoided it right away because I judged them based on the no left/right indicator.

I will always hate the sight of these because of my Zune jack issue. My friend got some pairs because he owns a speaker company and gave me the ones I had. I just put a price so I could post this. I would never buy these. I was boasting about some Sony buds I had to him and he said the Inks are really good sound. I didn't think they were that good and wish I never tried them. They are ugly. All Skullcandy stuff looks generic and stupid to me. Sorry Skullcandy, if i want candy in my skull I'll put it in my mouth and eat it.
