    I'm thinkin about orderin a pair of Skull Candies..but i want to try the new player series that was featured in DIME magazine..they are now introducinDeron Williams and Andre Igodala (sp?) in the new player series here they are if you haven't seen 'em

    It's kind of interestin because Andre Igodala was to b inspired by the Black/Red Jordan XI..which is cool..and D Will wanted his to b classy..anywho..whatis the hype about skull candies in general..i am tempted to scoop up the D Will's..

    i think the hype is behind the cool designs they have, i have a pair and they are not the greatest headphones to listen to music

    I hate the in-ear skull candies.

    not sure about the quality of these. try cnet for reviews. I would stick to tried and true headphones before I go for something pretty.

    They're straight. They are more eye candy than anything.

    My girl has skull candy ear buds and her brother has them..i told myself no because i am waitin to save up for some BOSE headphones..cause i have a $50 giftcard to BEST BUY for them..

    BTW..i use an Ipod Touch 8gb..and i just have the standard factory ear buds right now that came with it..i use the touch quite frequently..i just wantheadphones that will b good and have a crystal clear sound to it..and i'm just wonderin if Skull Candies present that crystal clear sound while not makinother people hear what i'm listenin too..

    I just like the D Will's..that's why i'm wonderin if i should pop for these?

    I have a pair of the ear buds and, for the $9.99 price, I love them. There's a little bass boost in them, which is unusual for cheap earbuds. Generally,the sound range in minimal. I love mine. However, BOSE headphones are definitely at the top--there's really no competition there.

    my sentiments exactly. Bose is far worse than Nike as far as the hype:quality ratio.

    See i don't want anythin that looks unusual..i'm just mainly usin it for the gym and casual listenin..i'm not like a beat listener lol

    I'm sure they're great headphones but i would like a "lil" style..

    I like the Shure SE520 Sound Isolating Earphones and those BOSE QuietComfort3's..i have tried the BOSE..and i love the sound quality and the way they lookon my head [​IMG]..i haven't seen the Shure SE530 in stores so ican't pass judgement on those..

    The best in-ears are probably the Ultimate Ears UE-11 Pro. They are custom fitted and are about $1150.

    The best universal fit in-ears are probably the Shure SE530, which are about $450.

    My Bose in ear head phones are awesome, have had em for 2 years now and they're better than any other in ear headphones I've tried. Great bass andquality, no sound leackage. Cons are that you can lose the plastic ear bud covers as they come off easily and the black and whit wires look crappy.
