I also bought these in the big sale, but even at a massive discount these are overpriced garbage. The build quality is awful, the buds are uncomfortable, the 'gold' colour of the cable is incredibly gaudy, but most importantly the audio quality is terrible. I've had better sound output from 2.99 supermarket earphones. Out of the box the left earphone had intermittent static every three seconds for no apparent reason.
Still think Skullcandy has got to be one of the best value in the market when it comes to sound. Got these at a great price andwhen you compare to similar in the market these buds are definately up there. Very comfortbale in ear, great for sound blocking and give a really crisp sound.
Would buy another pair in a minute, these are my 3rd pair of skullcandy buds and they have all been fantastic.
