Just recently picked up these headphones and so far, I'm a huge fan. I've had several Skullcandy products in the past, most notably the Crushers (the ones with the built in woofer) as well as some of their buds. These have been my favorite pair of headphones from them yet.
They're super comfortable (I've worn them for pretty much 8 hours straight on my shifts at work) and the sound quality is awesome. I'd say it is better than any of the buds, as well as the Crushers. You don't get the built in subwoofer, but if mind-numbing bass that runs on a AA battery isn't a priority, I'd definitely recommend these.
Plus, if you're a Salt Lake local, Skullcandy's lifetime warranty is awesome. If they break on you, you can take them up to Skullcandy for a credit or swap them for a new pair. Or, if you're not a local, we at Backcountry have you covered with our sweet policy as well.
