Skullcandy aren’t garbage.
That’s Skullcandy’s most popular video. I haven’t even watched it.
However, I have been using some basic-assed SC earbuds for about two years now. The same pair of, maybe, $9 earbuds.
I primarily use them for music-making and listening. That’s listening both in-and-out of my apartment. Whether I’m checking bass, stereo panning, trying to be quiet for neighbors, reverbs and ambience or just ’cause I want headphones, these things have delivered.
As you might know, I make music. I’ve used several headphones including the Sennheiser HD280 and others. After you’ve been playing music for awhile, you get to try a few things out.
So, take it from me, if you need a supplement to your full-range system for editing, reference or just pure enjoyment then go ahead and pick up some of these guys. They have my approval.
