Skullcandy Smokin Buds
Advantages: Available in a wide spectrum of colours, great sound quality, strong and reliable
Disadvantages: Not too cheap
I have always had to buy headphones almost every other month due to their poor and cheap quality. Either one speaker or both stops working completely, the cord breaks or they're simply too quiet. The problem was i had never spent enough on decent headphones so I could be sure they would last. That was until I bought a Skullcandy pair. I had always wanted to get them but I only ever seem them selling for around £15 or more. I was buying something in my local TkMaxx one day when I spotted a snazzy blue pair of in-ear skullcandy headphones for only £9.99. They were even designer - Paul Frank. The monkey and the giraffe logos on the backs of the buds made the headphones stand out from the others next to them. I had to get them as I knew I would have a difficult job trying to get them any cheaper. It was amazing that I had managed to find them in blue to match my Ipod and my favourite colour.
I love the stripy pattern on the cord - which seems very strong and unlikely to break. The in-ear buds are great as you can listen to any music, rock, pop as loud as you wish without anyone complaining about the noise. I used to have this problem on the bus! I always found that flat headphones dropped out of my ears very easily but these stay in firmly without causing any discomfort. The cord length is fantastic at 1.3 metres which means it doesn't suddenly become impossibly short if you get a few knots in the cord. There are even two sets of spare buds included in the box - one large and one small. I thought the skullcandy stencil was an interesting addition - I won't be using it but it is a clever way of promoting the skullcandy brand. The Paul Frank art on the headphones would appeal to kids and highlights the way in which listening to music should be an enjoyable, fun experience. The sound quality is second to none as they are in-ear allowing the music and bass to be as loud as you'd like it! Obviously don't be too tempted to turn them to maximum volume as this could damage your hearing...
You can buy skullcandy headphones in many different colours, blue, red, black, silver, green or even metallic - again perfect for kids. I got mine for a bargain but prices range from around £9 to £40. £10 or £11 on Amazon for small buds and from £18 to £40 for large ones on Amazon. Play.com sells them for similar prices.
Overall: In-ear headphones are truly genius. Period.
Summary: Best headphones around - guaranteed to last the longest.
