A thoroughly good pair of headphones.

Advantages: Sound quality, volume and stylishness.
These headphones are as much a fashion accessory as they are a way of getting decibels in to your ear. Many people (including me) would view this as a good thing as long as the quality
As with all skullcandy products, you are as much buying into the lifestyle presented by the skullcandy marketing as you are buying headphones. This instantly means that you are going to get worse value for money than comparable products, but I think that the style is worth the extra.
The massive ear cups are firstly a great piece of design, but they also house a huge pair of speakers. The volume is simply amazing, but there is no compromise between this and sound quality when you turn the volume right up.
As previous reviewers have mentioned, the durability of the cups is less than brilliant. However I have found that it is easily enough for everyday use.
Although they are not the most hard wearing headphones, The stylishness and music quality easily makes up for this.
Summary: If you can put up with being really careful, you'll get a lot of enjoyment out of them.
