Mainly purchased due to previously owning the quality Smokin' buds (silver) - thought these would be a stepup, but they are actually on par. They're a decent pair, but then again everyone knows Skullcandy are infamous for bumming off bass, which is ideal for my "chillwave"/electro/alternative genre of music, but that's not to say these titans aren't suitable for all music.
Had to fiddle with the different earbud sizes that come with the earphones, and even the equaliser on my iPod. But eventually found the right fit. Managed to get the titans for 13 pounds (at the time of writing, they're actually being sold for 113 pounds.. what the); else i wouldn't pay the usual price of 20+ pounds because (and it's likely) they break.
There's plastic that encases the green wire which makes them look a little on the tacky side, which the image doesn't show very well, so don't buy them solely based on their appearance. I will be investing in some entry level Sennheisers next time, but until then - if you do want an upgrade from the standard iPod earphones without breaking the bank, give these Titans, or the Smokin' buds (09, i think) a go- but expect them to break within 6 months or so.
