Skullcandy Smokin' Buds (Green/Black)

 

Skullcandy has made quite a name for itself in the headphone world, thanks largely to its focus on funky fashion and durable designs aimed at extreme-sports enthusiasts. Indeed, the company is known for a variety of things, and we seriously doubt...

The Skullcandy Smokin' Buds earphones come in a wide variety of color combos, and the cloth-covered cable is thick and seems durable. They're affordably priced and offer some compelling extras, such as an inline mic.

The sound quality of the Skullcandy Smokin' Buds is not great, and the earbuds are not particularly comfortable.

Although sound quality isn't the greatest, the Skullcandy Smokin' Buds provide a funky design and some compelling features for the price. They're a solid budget option for music phone owners.

Skullcandy Icon 2 (Magenta Print)

 

The Skullcandy Icon 2 headphones offer a unique style and have interchangeable earpieces. They're inexpensive, lightweight, and include a durable cord and an inline mic with a call answer button for use with music phones.

The Skullcandy Icon 2 don't fit particularly securely, and bass is anemic. Overall sound is weak.

Skullcandy Icon 2 headphones are a decent option for teens who prefer on-ear models with a splash of style and a built-in mic for music phone compatibility.

Skullcandy iCon (Cmyk)

 

The Skullcandy iCon Soft headphones offer a unique style with interchangeable earpieces. They're lightweight and include an inline mic and a call answer button for use with music phones.

The Skullcandy iCon Soft don't fit securely, and bass is anemic. Overall sound is weak.

The Skullcandy iCon Soft headphones offer up style and sound that only a tween or teen could love.

Skullcandy SC-SBW3.5 Smokin Bud

 

Very affordable earbuds with a great design, great color options, and impressive sound

Barely any. Some say the earbuds fall out from time to time, but this is a rare occurrence

These earbuds are a force to be reckoned with. Not only do they provide a sleek, interesting design, they're affordable and produce clear, wonderful sound, as well.

"A very poor quality product"

 

Owned 2 separate pairs of these and both times they broke within weeks. One the first pair I had one of the buds stop giving sound as well. I enjoy good audio quality and was not impressed at all with these. A fashion accessory and not really designed...

-"low" price

-Below average sound

Consumer review by:

"Good ear buds but nothing like my old skullcandy's."

 

They are good headphones/ear buds for the price, but other skullcandy headphones/ear buds are better.

They are really cool looking, and for me are very comfortable. They are also really affordable.

Well, the sound quality is not that great and sometimes the earbud can fall out of your ear.

Consumer review by:

"Love the "Cantangle" technology! See below.."

 

I have to compliment Skullcandy on their patented technology called "Cantangle". This ground breaking technology refers to the Ear Bud style headphones which if they "can tangle they will tangle". Look at them wrong and their tangled. Enjoy the moments...

They sound decent for the money. The variety of rubber ear pieces is a nice touch as well...

"Great for the price, but that's about it."

 

I knew the sound quality wasn't going to be amazing at this price range, and if anything it has impressed me with quality for the price, but the real reason I got the headphones was for sports (skateboarding & snowboarding) and I was less than...

Sound quality is good for the price range, phone controls I haven't and won't use, improved durability of material for this company.

Fit/Feel. If not secured in anyway, say with a headband, these will want to slip off your ears constantly.

Product Specifications

Smokin' Buds are not the musical journey itself. They're more like a ticket to ride. Or an enjoyable travel companion who brought an extra super-comfy pillow and blanket just for you. Or a friendly little sprite who lives inside your ear, delivering mind-bending dots and loops to your brain while making sure your eyes don't wander off in two different directions while he buffalos your skull. Whatever they are, they sound delicious.
