I'm the kind of guy that goes through about an earphone per month. For this reason, I've never really been wild about spending too much money on earphones and, as a result, I've been plagued with poor sound quality for quite some time.
But I got sick of this after a while, you know? I love my music, and I simply wasn't getting the full experience from the other cheaply made and poorly sounding earphones that I used to use.
I decided to take a chance and go for Skull Candy Full Metal Jacket in-ear buds, and I haven't looked back since!
Overall, these earphones give you a huge bang for your buck. At a modest $49.99 (that's the price for quality, folks!), you get excellent sound quality, crisp highs, warm and full mids, and groovin' lows. The build is incredibly durable and the foam-tipped buds.
I did have several qualms, however. The cord very unfortunately transmits sound if you touch it or if it moves about, so you probably shouldn't use these if you intend to exercise or do any movement-heavy activities. It isn't so loud that it'll drown your music, but it can be quite annoying.
I've also had experiences in the past with Skull Candy earphones shorting out, but I'm hoping this proves to be different.
Pros - * Very good sound quality * Amazing range, handles everything I've thrown at it very well * Durable, plated with gold, chrome, black, and an assortment of other colors. * Comfortable buds for all ear sizes. * They look pretty great. Cons - * Noise transmission through the buds
I highly recommend these buds to music lovers. If you can look past the one or two little issues, it's definitely worth it.
