Advantages: Good sound quality, easy to transport/store, affordable price
Disadvantages: Poor fit, temperamental microphone
I used to wear only in-ear headphones, but had problems with getting them to actually stay in my ear so switched to over-ear headphones instead. The Skullcandy Lowriders were the first over-ear headphones I bought, so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised.
I chose the Lowriders as they fold up easily making them much easier to transport and store and I liked the range of colours that were available. The cable is more than long enough to be comfortable and the sound quality is high for the relatively low price.
I got the Lowriders with the extra microphone, however I still haven't figured out how to actually use the mic - I've done what the instructions say but it still doesn't seem to work - perhaps a technical issue, I'm not sure. Also the headphones aren't a very good fit for me - they are adjustable but are simply too big to be entirely comfortable - they have a tendency to slip down and aren't practical to wear when I'm moving around.
Despite this I think the excellent sound quality makes up for the faults, and I would still recommend the Skullcandy Lowriders as a good value set of headphones.
Summary: In my opinion the excellent sound quality makes up for the faults.
