Pros: Well balanced, not easily tangled, nice carrying case
Cons: Bass is slightly lacking
I'm new here, please don't hate
I got my Titans on sale at a Dick's Sporting Goods
These were my second pair of Skullcandy buds (Inkd became my workout pair). Overall, I was impressed with them. they stood up to everything I/life threw at them (except for an accidental spin in the washing machine). They were great for monitoring live sound at my church and school, and (with a little EQ help) were great mobile earbuds.
These are good headphones for the money
They sound great (esp. with a little bass bump with a custom EQ)
They are attractive, not gaudy, minimal, but sturdy
After a minute or two of wear, I couldn't really tell they were in... After half an hour or so, I generally take them out, let 'em cool down a bit, and put them back in
If by isolation you mean how well outside noise is blocked, 4.5/5... I used them in an engineering classroom where CNC machines, robotic arms, shop vacuums, fans, and noisy competition bots (VEX Robotics motors are really loud). iPod volume was about 3/4 the way up, and all I heard was music.
Pros: Decent sound quality, good design, superb isolation (if proper fit is attained)
Cons: Design flaw reduces comfort, cable tangles easily, heavy, not much clarity
I bought these because my Philips O'Neill set had a fatal cable flaw after seeing them several times at my local TJ Maxx. Here's my review of them:
Design and Comfort
The Titans have a metal housing that is fairly durable, but also heavy. That is the first flaw of the housing: it has a tendency to not stay in the ear terribly well, cutting down on isolation. The second flaw is much, much worse from a comfort perspective: the housing is larger than the rubber tips provided, making it painful after just 30-40 minutes. Because the housing does not stay in the ear well, the edge of the housing, which is fairly sharp, rests on the ear in a very uncomfortable fashion that affects comfort for the long-term. The cable is cylindrical, which is much more tangle-prone than a flat design. Microphonics are present but not unbearable. Unfortunately, because I treated these fairly badly, the cable's connection to the plug is prone to making the sound cut in and out, so treat them well and keep them in the included case.
Sound signature is very bass-focused, as all low frequencies are emphasized. They are pronounced, but they don't overshadow the rest of the sound. They do lack clarity and punch, but they are decent for a budget set. The mids are what I always like about Skullcandy in-ears: warm and buttery. In this set, they are less pronounced because of the bass, but they still offer good separation. The clarity is not really there, but that is not what these buds are for. The highs are rolled off, but only at the extremely high frequencies is it incredibly bad. This does mean that they are not harsh, but warm. Overall, the clarity is not present in any frequency range, However, for anybody wanting warmth over clarity, these aren't too bad unless you hate bass.
In conclusion, the Skullcandy Titans are not terrible for budget earphones, but they pale in comparison to anything over $50, and other sets that sound better can be bought for similar prices. Bassheads, these ones are for those of you on a budget who couldn't care less about clarity.
