Excellent sound quality, appalling build quality.,
This review is from: Skullcandy INK'D Earbuds - Black/Black (Electronics)
I received these earphones as a gift. I must say, I was very pleased with the sound they produced. As a drummer, these were the only earphones I'd had for ages that managed to compete with my drum kit's racket, meaning I could play along to my iPod.
However, less than a month later, the product's sound simply cut out, one earphone quickly after the other. I think it's something to do with jack going into the iPod because it produced sound when the jack was adjusted from it's original position and held at a certain angle, but of course it was silly to have to hold them in the same place all the time and completely unproductive, so I went out, thinking that my first pair of skullcandy's were a one off error, to buy myself some more. Of course these too broke after a month and a half or so. I suppose they may last if you don't use them very regularly, but as musician and a regular iPod listener, it's not worth the annoyance of having pairs break on you once a month. Excellent sound quality, as said in the title, but let down immensely by the shockingly bad build of the things. Not worth the extra cash of buying new ones.
