Kylezdanamewrote a review of Skullcandy Full Metal Jacket Bud Headphones on January 31, 2010
I will start off my saying I love these headphones. My previous pair were the Bose in-ears and they lasted me 2 years until the cord-to-jack started coming loose.. The sound was unbeatable believe me. Ill give you some pros and cons for the Bose:
-Lots of bass, to where I had to used treble booster for EQ
-The sound quality beat all other in-ears I've ever tried.
-The soft, cushiony tips are a great design; Some people hate the whole "ear plug" design. These are comfortable to where you forget they're there.
-Durable, long lasting. (if you take care of them)
-Very long, rubbery cord that tangles
-Not very stylish
-Won't stay put if you're jogging or something like that. (didnt for me atleast)
-Didn't block enough sound for me. But surprisingly blocked a lot more than I thought- seriously.
Okay so the Bose's quality and sound pretty much make up for all the CONS so for $100 bucks, you can't beat it. Here's some pros and cons for the Skullcandy FMJ's:
-Cord is made of a sort of fabric material that never tangles
-Has a mic and call button. (You can pay $120 for Bose in-ears with mic)
-The cord length is perfect
-They really stay put in the ear..I never have to adjust them, Ever!
-Durable, metal design
-Sound iight. Can't complain to much.
-Not nearly enough bass for me. (Bose has like 3x more/ the Skullcandy Ink'd budds have a lil more than these)
-Sound quality isn't worth $70 at all.
Okay so my only issue with the FMJ's is the sound- it could be better. If your looking for a good solid pair of headphones that stay in your ear, look way cool, sound okay, and don't bother you to much, get these.
If you want incredible sound quality with A LOT of bass (which i love!) and don't mind paying an extra $30 dollars, then I'd HIGHLY recommend the Bose. They don't look 'cool' but its Bose, what do you expect?..
