Just got them...any more Amazon bargains, struggling to spend another £20!!

Admittedly I massively upgraded to Shure 530's straight from these, but they sound good and will last if you look after them (despite the reviews). At this price they're a steal and I guarantee anyone using stock iPod earphones will be supremely impressed.

have heard better things about these: http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/3354290/Skullcandy-Smokin-Bud-Headphones/Product.html

which are only a pound more...

Are these any better than those Creative ear buds that get posted every few weeks on here ???


Worse IMHO. The bass is a bit boomy and synthetic sounding and these are not the loudest earbuds, but YMMV. One of the biggest bugbears is the cable length. Too short, but with the supplied extension they become too long.

I have these headphones & a pair of Shure E4's. I use these for day to day stuff, travelling to work etc. Sound quality on these is pretty good. I actually quite like the shorter length as I use a remote with my iPod.

One thing you need to be careful is that the earbuds can sometimes come off if you catch them on clothing

I had 3 pairs of these go bad in a row, each lasted about 9 months before one of the earbuds stopped working. I took reasonably good care of them, so that was disappointing as it looks like a design flaw rather than a manufacturing issue. Luckily I took the first pair back to curry's and got a refund, then bought the next ones from Amazon, who replaced them without much hassle when they went bad.

Bought a pair of the creatives to replace the last set, the sound is actually quite a lot better, and the price was right.

As has been mentioned above, although these headphones sound great, I too have been through 3 pairs in 3 years. The problem seems (at least for me) at the juncture between the left and right earphone wires, where one or the other seems to come loose over time; meaning that one earphone will not work. However, for this price (esp with Amazon Prime), I would still go for it because Amazon will replace them.

I presume the reason the price has dropped is because Sony have replaced these with a newer model.

Sorry guys, which are the creative ones that you are talking about exactly?

Thanks,

i guess the creative ones are the EP-630's (or more recent EP-635's).

I have EP630 & also had one ear stop working due to a faulty connection of some sort at the end that connects to the MP3 player.

Anyone else have advice on the Skullcandy's?

Those creative ep-630s ones are excellent and they are pretty hardy in my experience. I dropped a pair when getting out of my car once and didn't notice they were missing till two days later when I found them on the pavement next to my parking spot. The onyl reason I noticed them was because it was frosty and I noticed this white line on the pavement. After cleaning them off they still worked perfectly!

Awful headphones. Bought the white set myself, and the rubber came off (exposing the wires) after 4 months. And yes I take care of my headphones.

Deciding I wouldn't get another pair, my brother bought me some at Xmas. They lasted 2 months, then one of the headphones just wouldn't work.

I've since bought some Sennheiser CX300's. Had them a year now and not a single problem. Plus they sound ok too, although a little hissy and lower volumes (compared to my PX100's).

I'd go with something else to be honest, even if they are only £9.99. The Creative's look ok, my brother and parents have a set each. I'm not sure what I'll get next. Want a pair of SR60's for home though.

I Bought the skull candy ones, they were awful the left ear stopped working after about 2 months, and I hadn't even used them that much either. Fortunately I didn't pay the rrp, I only paid £12.99, still annoying though. Gone back to the ipod in ear ones now, they seem to last much better.

Spend a decent amount, get a decent set. Spend a little, get a ****** set.

Crossroads Mylarone X3(i). Around £30ish. Best bang for the buck.
#14
I've owned both the Sony EX71 and Creative EP630 and i would say that the Creative ones have more bass. I'm currently using the Sennheiser CX500 which are the best earphones i've owned but they cost alot more.

These are well worth 10er i am on my second set,i use them for running,no problems good sound

Same story here except that my pair died in 3 months. The wires frayed too. Good sound quality but the plastics are of subpar quality.

I'm on my third set of these since they released this design (not same model, but more or less the same) seven years ago.

First pair fell apart through sheer use.
Second set had the infamous one-channel silence ... 13 months after purchase
Third set are still going strong after three years.

They are pretty acceptable for regular day-to-day use, but as some have said, they are sometimes a little fragile. The fragility seemed to be an issue when Sony moved production of these to China a while back.

The Creative look dangerously similar to Sennheiser CX300 'phones, so I suspect that they'll be very good too, considering the frequency response seems to be the same and the CX300 sound pretty good.

I know a lot of people suggest a more expensive set, but in-ear monitor style buds will take abuse no matter what. Best to save the expensive stuff (Shure E2C etc), for when you don't move around TOO much.

Note, that these buds also have a VERY handy headphone protection case for the buds only (not the cable as such), so that they don't tangle when you are not using them.

The casing is also designed to wrap the wire around when in use, to alleviate the "long" cable.

Those people who have whined about the long cable should use some common sense and read the instructions. The short piece is designed for in-line remotes and the long bit can be wound up effortlessly around the supplied casing. Easy - don't let completely inaccurate reviews put you off if considering these. They are a massive upgrade on 99% of stock buds, but won't sound as good as something that costs 4 or 5 times times the price.

It is ridiculously long though. I could put the buds in my ear and the cable would hit the floor and some. It's rather annoying having to carry the case just to shorten the length.

And given the size and usability of a lot of devices these days, you don't need a remote, so to many it'll be a redundant feature.
