I owned some GIs and one of their other ones several years ago. They looked cool to me at the time but in retrospect the bass was of extremely poor quality and they had way more than was needed to the point of distorting most of my music. I also found the ear pads to be a cheap material that caused irritation within the first 15 -20 minutes of use. The plastic hinges on the pair I owned broke very quickly, in addition the headband is just a strip of plastic with cheap material over top to give the appearance of a quality product. Yes I hated mine so much I decided to give them an autopsy.

In addition to the general poor quality the drivers are absolute trash; upon dissection they were just some no name brand made in china one size fits alls that you can find in many sub $20 headsets. For the price of these things you could get some quality sennheiser or ATH stuff, I believe you live in toronto? Head down to Bay/Bloor Radio and listen to some of the sennheiser headphones in the same price range as yours, you'll be blown away by the difference in quality.

fine, if i ever find out you're getting played i'll just let you.

i'm not talking out of my arse. i've gone through quite a few headphones during my workouts, as well as just down the streets as well as when i did video editing for school. the skull candy was nothing special. like i said, they did look cool though.

How bout a friendly 'Welcome to MCB' before schooling a new member on his poor taste in headphones? You can make him wrong later on.

Welcome!

Four years for any pair of headphones is an impressive feat in itself. None of the ones around my house have lasted long enough for me to test them (including skullcandy's).
