It seemed like every time I purchased earbuds, I eventually regretted the decision. But these Skull Candy ear buds finally quenched my thirst.

It doesn't matter what brand or how expensive. I've have purchased some expensive headphones that were not good products, and I have purchased cheap brands that were very good products. But, I feel like I was eventually let down by each one of them. Well I've got good news for all of you die hard music fans. These Skull Candy headphones are the real deal. Durability: These Skull Candy earbuds are the definition of durable. I have had several pairs and each pair has lasted twice as long as every other earbud I have purchased. I big problem that I have, and I'm sure many others also have, the wiring faulting out in the cord. For people on the go like me, I plug my earbuds into my phone and shove in my pocket and I'm on with my day. But by doing this it constantly has the wire positioned at a sharp angle, which then will eventually ruin the wiring of the headphones. But I have yet to run into that problem with these skull candy headphones. But its not only that, I have stepped on them, spilled water on them, and I have yet to actually break a pair by doing that. After daily usage and multiple hours a day, mine past two pairs have lasted at least 6 months. Quality: The sound quality of these headphones are very impressive. They insert in your ear nicely and the music sounds great.
