From some reviews people have complained that the bass can be a little heavy. Im not finding this to be the case. On much of my music the bass is a little less than I expected to be honest.
Even if your not a fan, Oxide and Neutrino and Alpha/Omega make music that is great for testing, especially those low bass tones. Sound reproduction is good, throw away your apple buds. However they are not as loud as I would expect from 50mm's, although they can pass for speakers off of your head.
Comfort wise, you will never look back to in-earphones. Skullcandy do a great job padding and making sure they fit, even if your ears do get a little warm occasionally. (Dont complain in Winter, I wear mine to do exactly this sometimes.. lol)
Looks-wise - the reviews below are correct. The image bares no resemblance to the actual product. Ear cups are white with the usual Skullcandy decals. Headband is less cumbersome and has the SC skull in metal with red writing over the top. Whilst certainly not SC's best looking set, they are less garish and look very cool.
The travel bag that comes with these is pretty awesome, even if you dont need it for yours heads, you will want to find another use for it hehe.
Now for a few niggles.
-cable is 'JUST' a little too short.. being about 4" longer than your usual apple buds. (just buy an extender)
-noise muffle isnt great - I can still hear the outside world. But for me I would rather hear oncoming cars beeping at me..
-the legendary SC lifetime guarantee - it seems to only really work for USA peeps. According to the EU SC page you have to return them to the shop (a little more difficult when bought from Play) If your store will not replace or do the 50% own fault recovery then the website just says that they will 'advise you what to do'. - If anyone has been through this process, please do update this review.
But even still - at £18 delivered, a lifetime guarantee would be a lot to ask for wouldnt it? lol
Those without overheadphones - buy these. A great starting point in comfort, sound and style at a steal of a price.
I will be buying Skullcandy again and I hope you do to.
