Jea, I just got AKG 181 DJ Pro's for like 150, they are the best headphones ever. I've owned SkullCrushers, they were good for a while, until I realized their quality blows, both sound, and construction, the wire got torn after 4 or 5 months of casual use and packing into the case. Compare specs of SkullCandy to AKG or any higher class headphones and you will realize how shitty Candys are. They might look good, but not when everybody has them, sporting them like they are so fucking cool. Damn it SkullCandy n00bs!!! buy quality headphones and realize for once that music can be transformed by a good set of headphones, and then plug them into a quality stereo instead of an iPod, which, while i use primarily, cuts out so much music quality its almost useless. You need to buy legit CD's from a stereo and play them on your stereo, and plug in some decent headphones, and THEN you are listening to music.
For looks, compare my 181's:
to the white TI's, the seemingly most common headphone around:
SkullCandys are bulky and over-padded, the joints are cheap plastic joints, and they have "Steezy" metal emo studs built in, while the AKG's waste no space or weight on metal study, have solid-built joints which would survive and thrashing due to their unique rotating pattern, and they look more modern and refined.
Well I suppose you can still buy SkullCandys if you want, they are, after all, much better than shit iPod buds, but I just want to share that if you want to have a real, full music experience, go for the extra bucks, buy some good headphones, some legit cd's, not downloaded ones, and treat yourself to a new level of music. Theres my SkullCandy rant, probably not very well-suited for this thread, but I just want to give my opinion and tell everybody that there is better stuff out there than Candys. Fin.
