Here we go soon as edi post a deal on my memory using a voucher people jump on the bandwagon and start posting there so called hot deals

Awful headphones. Do yourself a favour and get a set of sennheisers.

If your buying this, be prepared with their awful customer service.

ive just brought some skullcandy's today
but if only i saw this earlier
heat added (Y)

Terrible sound quality headphones. Dont bother

These things are so loud that you can hang them off you neck and use thm as speakers! Excellent of they get uncomfortable whist wearing them. FYI the sound quality is average, nothing compared to Sennheisers, then again Sennheisers look **** and Skullcandy don't, which is why most people buy them. Quality price so voted HOT.

Are you serious? Sennheisers are probably the most bought headphones/earphones on the planet. Only people who buy scullcandy are fools who THINK they look "cool" or have very bad hearing and can stand listening to distortion and wobbly bass for long periods. Trust me, stay away from scullcandy. They have awful production too, they break easily.

Ok here you have review from amazon amazon.co.uk/pro…orr

and here from play awesome product play.com/Ele…b=0

wow... you trust some customer reviews on play.com? Trust me, listen to a track on these, then listen to them on say the senneheiser hd205s (which Ive used for djing for 2 years now, and still are working fine and sturdy as hell, and are cheaper than these overpriced dull sounding headphones) or sennheiser eH250s and then tell me which has better sound :-)

Original Poster

most of the people think like that about hd205s "These were so tight that I could not use them for more than 5 to 10 minutes. They pressed so hard into the side of your head that you could feel and hear your pulse under the 'cushioning'. That's why If you have small head and £12 more in your pocket, take a risk and buy them, but first take a look at this review amazon.co.uk/Sen…YRO

Yes theyre tight at first... but like most good quality headphones made by good material, they need to be broken in. You need to put them over like an armchair rest and let them loosen up over night then their perfect. Everyone agrees the HD205s have great sound and look professional, not like some cheap asian import. I didnt find them tight at the start that much anyways.

Trust me, I dj often and am studying music production, and have used many headphones with different specs and drivers and skullcandy headphones are NOT good. Sennheisers drivers are some of the best in the buisness. Buy at your own risk if you want really good sounding headphones.

I disagree with your whitewash view of SkullCandy products - and this coming from someone who's just busted their Sony MDR V700's and is contemplating the Sennheiser HD25 II.

I, too, DJ and sound edit - but your DJing prowess is null and void here. You and I both know that Sennheiser HD's are pretty much industry standard for proper monitoring - at £150 a pop they are INCOMPARABLE TO THIS. Put it into perspective - these are £20 cans. They are GOOD for the price - Skull Candy do excellent earbuds - especially the Full Metal Jacket Series. Their headphones are also snug fitting and the cup is fairly good at isolating the noise around you (though not noise cancelling at this price).

I say these are a good deal for the price.

Skullcandy are a hugely overhyped but well-branded manufacturer. Average quality products, at average prices. Ideal for youngsters who want bright colours and funky patterns instead of good sound quality.

Seems an OK deal for these for a youngster.

Hadouken!

No I was comparing these headphones to the sennheiser hd 205s which are about the same price, but have awesome sound quality for the price and are very durable. I'm not comparing skullcandy with the hd25s or a set of pioneers or anything like that.
I was just advising people looking for good sounding headphones to stay away as these are VERY average sounding.
If you don't mind average quality sound and like the way they look then their fine for you.

Do yourself a favour and buy yourself a set if these:
MDR-XB700
Giant EXTRA BASS headphones with extra large 50mm driver unit. Tightly sealed acoustics, flat cord, king-size luxury earpads.

sony.co.uk/pro…700



great for metrosexual bellends that walk down the street with these on over the top of a beenie to muffle the already tinny sound along with overpowering, badly eq'd bass. perfect for showing everyone what a douche you are in public with pretty patterns and colours on your latest fashion accessory, as opposed to using them to listen to music.

not so great if you want crisp hi's, warm punchy bass and a natrually well eq'd sound.

out of the £20 you'd spend on these, 90% will go to the art designers, 10% on the hardware inside.

voted hot, great for the price - this model also has an inline mic

Certainly a deal in terms of price compared to other retailers so voted hot. Can't say anything about product quality but MyMemory are a shocking retailer. I have received stuff that has been opened and used, when it was meant to be new...

if you ever have to say: 'great for the price' dont buy!

If you are going to start the whole "best headphone" debate and not even consider that what you are suggesting is £80 more then I'll put my 2p's worth in and say forget the Sony's and
get these far superior headphones for just a tad more:
Grado SR80i Open Back Headphones (Grado SR 80i)
Edited by: "dromoreboy" 3rd Aug 2010

Waste of money these.

brilliant! Love Orlando Magic

In terms of price, its good, and as this site is about displaying cheaper deals, it gets voted hot.

But if you want quality with the price, then I wouldn't bother buying them. I've got some Sennheisers, so I won't be buying these. Although saying that I wouldn't even if I did need headphones.

looks nice

make a great birthday gift thanks for the heads up

Are these compatible with the Wasp T12 Speechtool?

if you want sound quality at this price range you would be better off with a pair of Koss PortaPro

I got some Bose QC3s second hand from ebay for £150.. beat pretty much everything in every way..

Good deal if you're interested in fashion, not if you're interested in the sound.

skullcandy = EPIC FAIL

lol thats hilarious for, name me a credible major DJ around today that doesn't use the pioneer hdj 1000s, Denon headphones or the sennheiser hd 25s?

Exactly.
None.

Grados are not up to the standard of the pioneer or sennheiser drivers.

KoSS portapros are good sounding yes, but are the nearly as awful looking as skullcandys. In saying that, I do own a set of portapros.

And go away with your Hi-Fi Bose headphones poster above, were talking PORTABLE headphones.

Well Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Carl Cox,Sasha, Eric Prydz and others use the Technics rpdh1200's. Tiesto also uses Stanton dj pro 2000s. Any DJ worth his salt can work with any of the ones mentioned above however (except those naff Skullcandy ones).
Deadmau5, D Ramirez, Laidback Luke and others have custom made 'in-ear' monitors that cost something like £500.

Seriously, tiesto is NOT a credible dj, Ask anyone in the dj world, hes a laughing stock.

I know for a fact that Deadmau5 uses the HD 25s, as ive met him before after gigs in Dublin,, and he had them on his neck, and on his setup but he may switch between the HDJ 1000s and sony's.
And yes of course he uses custom ones, they're in built into the mouse head he wears at the start of his gigs.

Ill ignore the fact that you copied and pasted exactly what you posted off the axwell forums in an attempt to look like you know much about the DJ world, nice try though man.

And for the record, Deadmau5 is NOT a dj. Hes a producer. He even says hes not a dj.

Like it or not, 90% of djs use sonys, pioneers or sennheisers. As they are loud, comfortable and have a high freq range. End of.

@ Cepultura - Can any of these decent headphones you talk about be bought for £19? If not the STFU - You're not comparing like for like!

BTW...shouldnt it be SEPULTURA?

Oh dear... read my original post on this first page, the post above yours is not relavent to this offer, its just me and a few people comparing higher end headphones.

lll reiterate what I said... DONT buy these headphones if you want good sound, get the sennheisers HD202's or the HD 205s. Theyre about the same price, but are a million times better looking and sounding.

I have...yet I see no links...can you post some links where these headphones you have mentioned are around £20?

btw I am on the 1st page...there is only 1 page...as thats my option

Like I said...your not comparing like for like. People dont buy Skullcandy JUST for listening to music with, they are also used like a fashion accessory as they look fairly pretty unlike sennheiser which unless you go to £100 are pretty fugly

I like the Snoop Skullcrushers, but a fashion accessory rather than anything else, but you have to remember most will use these for MP3's etc not proper sound systems...therefore they arent getting the best sound no matter what they use

Please do yourself a favor and listen to any pair of Grados. The more expensive the better. Hard to find in shops though.

I know this post is about DJ headphones but why do we want them? Why dont we go into monitoring headphones if we are so interested in proffesional ones? I personally want good sound at affordable price which I happened to find at Grado's Hi-Fi range.

In my opinion 80£ Grado SR60 beats any headphones under 200£. There is a killer little portable iGrado for 45£ that souns just like SR60, only it is very unconfortable. Again will beat anything under 200£. And the 780£ Grado RS1 is the best sounding headphone if paired with a decent amp.

Source: experience.
Other headphones ive been through: Beyerdynamic DT800 PRO, Sennheiser HD650, AKG K701, iGrado, Grado SR60, 80, RS2 and loads of cheap under 100£ phones.

Seriously, did you study english in school? I said DONT buy these headphones IF YOU WANT GOOD SOUND! AS THEY ARE VERY AVERAGE SOUNDING HEADPHONES.
Im not talking about looks or style hear, but I think the scullcandys are "fugly".

The Sennheiser HD 202s are £22 approx on mymemory and amazon I think. Awesome headphones for the price. The HD 205s are about £30 but WELL worth paying the extra tenner for good looking headphones with such a kicking bass, not a droning dull bass.

Most people I know, and apart from arty students and emos, think scullcandys are horrible looking and an eye sore, but hey each to their own...

I know though id be pretty self councious walking around with a pair of scullcandys on my head.
