I bought these for my sister last year, the same time I got my GI's. believe me these are nothing like the GI's these are much better, both build quality wise and sound quality wise. These headphones are everything that I expected the GI's to be. She seemed very happy with the pink colour and was insistent that I specifically get these headphones, as not only have skull candy and over ear headphones become a fashion trend in general but she is what I would consider to be a "girly girl" and these seemed like the perfect present for her. Although she may not care about the sound, I sure do and I wanted to make sure that my sister was enjoying her music, and hearing everything she paid for (on iTunes). They were extremely good price the were approximately £30, in the UK thats only £4 more than the Low riders that I had bought.
These are over ear headphones, the cups on these headphones seem to be larger than average, completely swallowing your head and covering you ears, they are not completely sound isolating but they do block out the majority of background noise, and rest comfortably and softly on the edges of you cheek. Whilst blocking out some white noise, all in all these headphones create a very warm listening atmosphere, and makes you feel like you're in your own little world with these headphones on.
The headphones come in a range of colours, so guys you do have an opportunity to try these, these come with a nice and stylish carry case to protect your headphones, considering you do pay a nice price for them. You also get a spare change of ear pads, just in case these ones get boring or they wear out. The cable on the headphones cas a gold plated 3.5mm Jack, which is the standard jack for all mp3 players as well as iPods. However, for all the audiophiles and Dj's out there, do not be alarmed as these do come with a 3.5mm to 1/4inch adaptor so you can plug it into your high end system or even your DJ mixer. These would be perfect for DJ's their large ear cups, strong build and swivel ability, make it good for mobile dj's as something to just throw in their bag, perhaps as a pair of backup headphones? The cable also has it's own volume control, so you don't always have to reach for your music device to slow down the volume. The sound quality is good, however it is a bit acoustic bias, so you do not get the really deep basses and smooth transitions. This is not too much of a problem but may upset you dub step and house fans.
I bought these a few years ago from an ebay store in the US before Skull Candy became known in the UK. in short- i love these headphones. they are just what i wanted. being quite a girly girl i was attracted to the cool funky pink colour and they were going for a good price of £20.
These headphones are comfortable, covering all of your ear to drown out the majority of noise which usually hinders music listening. They are funky looking and come in a great range of colours. With these specific headphones they come with a nice little carry case as well as a change of ear pads (grey) in case you fancy a change. i have had these earphones a while and have found that the white ones that come attached to them are just starting to look a bit worn now.
They come with an adaptor so the earphones can be used to plug into an Ipod for example as well as plugging into your guitar amp if you want to play 'silently'
The cable which comes with the headphones is more than ample length so again they are handy for the likes of plugging into an amp or even a Hi-Fi system. Attached to the cable is also a volume control which is a nice little feature.
Overall the sound quality is good but if you like a lot of bass then maybe these earphones wouldn't entirely suit your need. Personally, i don't like a lot of bass so these were just perfect for my taste. i wouldn't pay the full rrp price in which these headphones are going for as there is better headphones on the market for cheaper - even though they may not be as comfy as these.
typically these headphones can be found from around £40 to £60 depending on where you buy them from. if you are going for earphones that look good and have a decent sound then yes, these are great, but if you are looking for a set of headphones that are going to be amazing in sound then £50 set of headphones from Sony for example may be a better investment - even though they don't look so good.
I will admit that i do like these headphones. i got an amazing bargain for my own set but i don't know if i would have forked out the RRP just because i liked the look of them.
they are comfy, they are handy for more than just listening to your MP3 player but when it comes down to it the sound quality is not as amazing as what it could be but, never the less they are decent.
