    The only help I can give you, is to do some research before you buy anything...including anything from Skullcandy. The only headphones I can really recommend from them is the Ink'd, but even Jbud J2's out-perform them.

    Skullcandy headphones are wonderful little things. But they always, always break for me. It stopped being worth the investment after the third pair, really. [​IMG]

    So yes, do research, lest you buy from another overly-fragile brand.

    yeh i didnt research them unfortunately. it was kind of an impulsive buy i saw them and was like...hmm....i want them *buys*
    so not uch research was put in haha. The skullcandy site is so dodgy, on the australian site, when you click on a headphone to see the details it comes back with 404 error :S

    BTW i tend to buy things that look better over their performance, its not a good habit but i cant see to break it thats why id pick Over Ear skullcandys over generic in ear headphones :/.
    Bright Colours and Awesome Designs FTW

    If you need new headphones, and money is an issue, I would recommend the Sony MDR-XD200's for home use, they're usually available for less than $30, and the sound quality is way outta their price range. If you need something more mobile, the MDR-XD300's are pretty good, not as nice sounding though, or if price isn't an issue, then I'd go for the MDR-XB700's.

    Monster Beats? Why the hell would you buy ANYTHING from Monster?


    Anyway, I have a pair of Sennheiser HD202's and they sound better than headphones I paid $150 for. They don't look all that fancy, but they are very sturdy, and they sound awesome. Not to mention you can probably get them for $16+ Shipping. There are only 2 downfalls with that model though.

    1. The cord is ZOMFG long, but it comes with it's own cord manager.

    2. They tend to get kind of hot after wearing them a while.
