Skullcandy INK'D Earbuds
Advantages: look great, good sound quality and very comfortable to wear
Disadvantages: a little pricey
I bought my Skullcandy Inkd Earbuds a few months ago when I was browsing in HMV, my previous Gumy earphones had just broken because, being the complete disaster I am, I left them in my trousers when I was doing the washing one night.
I decided to buy my new Skull Candy however because they were on sale and costed me only £10 (instead of the usual £18.99), which I thought was brilliant, so I thought I would try these earphones instead of making my usual Gumy Earphone purchase.
Skull Candy Earbuds come in a range of different colours, they are very bright and look rather nice, I decided to buy the purple and black ones as they would match my iPhone cover and I like co-ordinating things like that. Other colours however you can get within this range include:
Rasta (Green, Red and Yellow)
And I am sure there are more colours available, but you get the idea.
Each earphone has a little skull on the outside of it, it is the Skullcandy logo and gives the earphones a real 'rock' look. The earphones come with 3 different earbud sized silicone bands, each a different size so you can pick the one that is most comfortable in your ear, these are placed on top of the earphone and then you place the earphone into your ear (but not too deep, I don't really find these invasive or uncomfortable).
The cable from the earbuds to the adapter is longer than any earphones I have ever used, this is good because it means that when I am listening to songs on my Iphone with the Skullcandy Inkd Earbuds and playing with my phone, there is no uncomfortable tugging due to a short cable.
The quality of music that these earbuds produce is quite good compared to my previous pair of earphones, because they are inserted slightly into my ear, they block most or all of the outside noise around me depending on how high the volume is up and also the drums and general music is much more clearer, more crisp and enjoyable through these earphones.
Overall I think that these are fantastic earphones, I might not have bought them though if they were £18.99 because I would have opted for the cheaper Gumy earphones I normally use, but I am really glad they were on sale as I think they are really comfortable to wear, look rather trendy and the sound quality that comes from them is much better than my previous earphones, all in all I would give these earphones 4 out of 5 stars, they lose a star because I am too stingy to buy them at full price.

Summary: A good earphone, but probably wouldnt buy unless on offer
