    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.

    First set of IEM's I actually liked

    Pros - Good sound quality, good looks, nice pouch, decent price
    Cons - Somewhat fragile
    I got these a few years ago. Eventually, the screen on the inside fell off. 
    I never had a problem with the cables.
    The earbuds fit fine but they slip out of the ear after a while. I have noticed the slipping issue with every sey of IEM's I've owned. Must be me and my ears. I always have to readjust the IEM's. 
    When they are seated in my ear, the fit is fine, and the isolation is pretty good.
    I always liked their sound quality. A little extra oomph on the bottom end and everything else had a nice balance to it.
    I have 2 sets in 2 different colors but I don't wear IEM's anymore due to the slippage.
    If you like IEM's, I'd give these little suckers a try

      I used to use these for working out prior to getting iSports. The sound signature worked well for me in our club's noisy aerobic/weight room. Price was right also...can often get them on sale for $10-15 at TJMaxx / Marshalls.

    For budget, not too shabby

    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. 
    Audio Quality
    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.

    Pros - Great sound quality, pretty comfortable, exceptional noise isolation, great design
    Cons - Not full noise isolation, can get uncomfortable after long listening sessions
    I was always a Skullcandy fan once I bought their Ink'd ear buds for the first time a few years ago. After going through my second pair of Ink'd, I decided to upgrade to the Titans to see how they compare to ear buds I had in the past, and let me say, they sound GREAT for the $40 I paid for them.
    Admittedly, I was a little skeptical of purchasing these ear buds since a friend of mine had gone through a few pair of these that would fall apart on their own. However, I took a chance, and bought them regardless. Currently, I am on my second pair since I accidentally washed my first pair, but as far as build quality goes, I have yet to find any problems with how durable they are.
    When I first purchased the Skullcandy Ink'd ear buds, I was fairly impressed with how they sounded, so I naturally had high expectations for the sound quality of the Titans. Overall, I am very impressed with their full, sound. If you like the bass to be a little more prominent in your music, these are the ear buds for you. They can get fairly low without ruining the overall tone while also being able to hit the highs that won't cause your ears to bleed. They seem to adapt to any sound quality you throw at them. (Unless you listen to extremely low quality music.)
    For a pair of ear buds, these are quite comfortable. I listen to them for at least a total hour each day, and they are probably the most comfortable ear buds I've ever worn. However, over long periods of time, they can get a little uncomfortable. This is why I am looking into purchasing a pair of Skullcandy Aviators or Audio Technica ATH M50s.
    In the end, Skullcandy outdid them selves when they produced their Titan ear buds. They are comfortable, sound great, look amazing, and built exceptionally well for a reasonable price. If you are in need for a pair of ear buds, Skullcandy is the way to go!

    Pros - cost, Bass, Warranty,
    Cons - Eartip size, highs
    I was pleasently surprised at the sound quality of the Titans. I have always though Skullcandy was just utter garbage. There are plenty of Sony, JVC, models that sound much worse. The bass is loud with these. Not very accurate, but it's booming and there. The mids are ok, the highs are a little attenuated and again, not very detailed. These are good gym earbuds or for your teenage son/daughter. Just not detailed enough for any critical listening-that's not to say they are horrible. On rap and dance tracks it makes me think I am in Vegas in club. I just with the tips had more choices. The small tip is too small and the medium is a tad too big, so I went with the Comply T400 and they hold the bud in place, but the do attenuate the highs a bit, which I don't like.

    Pros - Warranty and Price
    Cons - Like most Skullcandy's, quality for style.
    I have tested all of the in-ear headphones that Skullcandy has to offer. I have done this through the very good lifetime warranty plan offered by Skullcandy. I own a pair of 2011 Red/Black Titans and by far they have the best tone, in my opinion, of all the Skullcandy in-ear headphones. Both FMJ and 50/50 offer rich bass. If you are looking for bass then thats what your need. Personally my Titans lasted longer than my friend's FMJ's.
    Titans offer the best tone and the only reason I buy Skullcandy is because of their warranty. I am no audiophile, but I seek good quality and Titan's offer they best that Skullcandy can offer. I have been told there are better headphones out there, but Titan's offer style and sound with a warranty plan that cannot be beat.
    If your looking for pure quality look some where else, but if you like knowing whenever your headphones break you can replace them. I'd take that anyday.

    Great in ear headphones, made better by the price.

    Pros - accuracy and clarity of sound reproduction, build quality, metal construction, included case, price
       These in ear monitors really impressed me, especially due to the deal I got on them. A friend of mine ordered a set of these for both himself and his wife and accidentally processed the order twice, so his find of a good deal became mine when he offered me the extra two sets for $25. The build of these are of a much higher quality then the ink'd line that Skullcandy sells with this model's driver housings being constructed in all metal in either black or chrome with the headphone's leads wrapped in a second clear protective casing which seems to hold up well (no discoloring) and seems to do the job (Neither I, nor my friend have had no trouble with any bad wire problems with any of the four sets). The included case is also very well made from a heavy black cloth, with a mesh cloth pocket inside the zipper on it's side of  it's flat round shape. Looks, build quality and a nice case don't matter much if they don't sound any good, but this is definitely not an issue. I listen to most variates of music, aside from country, and there are none of the issues I've noticed with some other in ear headphones. These have plenty of bass reproduction capability when needed and don't have any coloring when listening detailed acoustic or other more complex types of music. these also have a built in volume slider, also built of metal, on the cord at the split of the Y, I don't use it much but when I have it seemed to work well. These have weathered very well to what could probably be honestly called abuse on my part, I've accidentally submerged them in water, more than once, yanked and snagged the cord, and slept with them on and they still sound as good as when I first got them. After having having tried them out I would have bought them at retail if I didn't get them at a discount, and even at retail they are cheap enough to replace when I've either lost or abuse them past the point of breaking. These are a no brain-er for a replacement of the junk that is packaged with most mp3 players, Apple's Ipod definitely included.

    I like, but not very durable.

    Pros - SQ
    Cons - Durability
    i loved the sound quality. good for everything. not bloated bass, but if you threw on some bass-heavy music they would thump. yet if the music was not bass-heavy it was not intrusive. 
    they look cool, and are made of a cool metal. iono what it is. get some complys for it.
    the wire is going. one of the buds is crackling in and out when the sire moves.
