Advantages: easy storage, cool designs
Disadvantages: Flimsy, brittle design, poor sound quality
I am on my second pair of skullcandy lowriders after my old pair were stolen by a classmate. I bought another pair because or the portability, the style of them and for my ears' comfort!
I found the ability to carry these headphones around your neck with comfort and without them being in the way really useful. They also give you option of folding them up, making them easier to store in a bag or elsewhere. However, they are very flimsy and I have a friend who has gone through three pairs in under a year through breaking them. The cable is just the right length which is a problem I found on other headphones.
The designs on them are cool and really attractive! However, after a while, the print fades dramatically which is gutting!
Again, these headphones are comfortable but they don't fit on my head properly so a lot of the sound is lost. The upside is that you can hear traffic if you're about to cross a road unless you don't respect your ears and just turn the volume up.
The sound quality isn't great but it is better than what you would get from in ear headphones. If quality is what you want, look elsewhere.
Summary: cool for wandering round town in but thats about it.
