I have wanted a pair of Skullcandy headphones for a long time. I won't be buying them again. These headphones look great and are very comfortable. Sadly thats where the positives end, and for the stuff that really matters the headphones are very poor:
1) Sound quality is terrible. I saw other reviews saying sound wasn't too crisp etc but that doesn't come close, there is no treble at all and it sounds like you are listening through a door. Without some kind of equalizer where you can crank up the treble right up they are hopeless. I prefer my in ear phones that came free with my phone, and I HATE in ear head phones.
2) Build quality: Within 5 days of receiving the headphones the jack became faulty so that you have to bend it in a certain direction to get sound out of both sides. It has since gotten worse and there is no sound at all. The cable feels flimsy, more like pound land string, The whole setup doesn't feel very substantial...
I was hoping to get them replaced so I could see if I got a dud pair but am having difficulty with returns procedure, play website won't send the collection note properly... But my girlfriends pair (different model) broke just after mine with the same fault so I think I will try something else!
