Todd Wwrote a review of Skullcandy Fix In-Ear Earbuds with Mic3 - 2011 on July 2, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'll try to keep this brief, but this is the first time I?ve gone out of my way to tell people NOT to buy a product. I got these things about a week or two ago to replace a pair of crappy knockoff Apple headphones. When I opened them they were completely fine and exactly what I expected.. after wearing them twice, the volume button on the headphones stopped working. I said "no big deal, I only really wanted them for better quality and a pause/next song button".. after 4 days that button stopped working. I said, "I guess you get what you pay for, at least the headphones still work"..Keep in mind I only used these for my 20 minute commute to work, by no means any "rigorous activity like running or skateboarding". That was until around day 5 or 6.. when the headphones started causing my music to literally stop, start, fast forward, and even make siri pop up without even hitting any button. Making them completely useless... Like I said in the title, maybe I got a bad set, but these were the most useless product I've ever bought.
Before they "broke?" the sound was overall pretty good, my only sound complaint was that the bud, since they claim to not fall out, fully block your ears so you can't hear anything else(not a good noise canceling thing). So if you talk, you feel like your deaf and throws off your equilibrium.. which is weird.
