Advantages: Great sound quality and comfortable in ears
Disadvantages: Don't last very long. Sound in one earphone stops working after only few months
I have bought the skull candy earphones numerous times now. I would normally buy them from HMV, the price varied, sometimes I paid £14.99 and sometimes £9.99 dependent on the offer. They come in a range of colours, I have bought them in both pink and purple, the colours are nice and bright.
The sound quality is really good with these earphones, the bass is good and they don't sound tinny at all which for the price I was pleasantly surprised with. They have great sound insulation, even at the highest volume the sound does not escape which as we all know can be very irritating to others on public transport and similar situations.
They come with three different sized buds for you ears so you can pick which is most comfortable for your ears. I find them extremely comfortable to wear, especially when exercising. They sit snug in my ear and they don't fall out or start to hurt if I've been wearing them for a long period of time which has happened with other earphones.
The only disadvantage is the length of time I use them before the sound stops working in one earphone. At first I thought it was maybe because I wasn't careful when putting them into my bag or wrapping the wire around my iPod and loosening the connection but I have bought these earphones four times now and although I tried to ensure I kept the wire loose so as not to loosen the connection again, I find it makes no difference. Each pair I have owned only ever lasted around five to six months. This probably depends on how often you use them, I would use mine almost everyday, commuting to and from work and working out a few times a week.
The reason I continued to buy them is because of the sound quality and comfort, and although not expensive earphones I do expect them to last longer than around 5 months. It is a shame because they are great earphones but I am now fed up of having to buy a new pair every few months. I will now be looking for alternative earphones.
Summary: Would be great if only they lasted longer than a few months
