Pros Affordable, good volume, fairly balanced in its range of sounds, can last long for the price (depending on how frequently used).
Cons Very minimalist, the range of sounds (though balanced) is limited, has a distortion-like effect that makes the music sound less well-produced, ear bud cushions can easily fall off, tough to keep comfortably in ear while in-motion.
Summary Skullcandy seem to have an evenly split collection of fans and naysayers. They're an affordable brand who seem to be best known for having a strong volume in the headphones. Simultaneously, their quality has a tendency to be a bit questionable. With the Ink'd earphones, we have perhaps their most affordable product and, for what you're paying, it's tough to find a better deal.
The Ink'd earbuds can usually be found as cheap as $10 at local stores which is about as low of a price as you'll get on such a product. What's most surprising is that, despite being so cheap, they're actually a worthwhile purchase. For a more casual listener that is. With such a low price tag, it should go without saying that audiophiles aren't encouraged to bother with these.
The good news about the Ink'd buds is that, if you listen to music on a fairly casual basis and tend to be stationary while listening, then they should suffice for a while. However, just about any other means of use makes these tough to recommend. They aren't ideal for use while walking (or just about any exercise) and, if you listen to music for several hours every week, then there's a good chance they'll reach their breaking point before long.
The sound quality itself here is merely adequate. What stands out most is the above-average volume that can make the music sound more vigorous than a more standard set. That said, there's a bit of a distortion-like effect to the sound these earbuds emit which seems intended to fit with heavier music. While I listen to heavy metal 80-90% of the time, hearing softer or more melodic pieces simply wasn't as enjoyable on the Ink'd buds.
Thus, these are headphones you'll get what you pay for. If you aren't concerned with pinnacle audio quality and just want satisfactory results for your listening, then these should do the trick. But if you want a more quality set of earbuds, then you'd better look elsewhere.
Pros I love these once i got them I bought the 1 year insurance and I have the lifetime warranty. The bass is incredible and I love the sound quality. These headphones are perfect.
Cons Would have to be crazy to say a con.
Summary best bass for the price excellent sound quality and you will be in love since the first time you put them in your ears.
