The other day my faithful phillips in-ear headphones finally died. After being used for a good four hours every day I'm surprised it took them this long (over a year). I needed a comfortable pair of portable earphones, with good sound quality and it always helps if they look good. I came across the skullcandys in HMV on my way to work and decided to take a gamble and buy them.
They look nice, and are an odd style, helpfully they come with some instructions on how to put them in your ears. I had my doubts when I first saw how you were meant to wear them but when I finally figured out how to do it I was pleasantly surprised, they were both comfy and secure. The sound quality was also good, it was pretty similar to my previous phillips which isn't a bad thing. Nice trebles and deep basses with little to no distortion. They also block out a lot of background noise.
The only problems I have had with these is putting them on, but once you learn how to do it properly they fit snugly and securely. They also come with a handy carry case that stops them from being damaged or getting tangled in your pocket. I have owned a few sets of headphones, and highly recommend them.
