Headphone Specifcs

Sound: 18-20k Hz delivers great sound quality. It doesn't have top of the line clarity like beats and some other fancy headphones that you'll pay hundreds of dollars for. But the volume and definition still have a solid kick to them. They aren't meant to be noise cancelling headphones but at full volume it's easy to tune out some quieter sounds that could act as distractions. The DJ Articulation ensures you get the best quality and sound experience at the price you're paying.

Price: An affordable price tag of $27.99, not too costly that it can still make a great gift or a way to spoil yourself with the leftover money from your paycheck.

Benefits of the features: The headphones come with a built in mic that makes answering phone calls a snap while getting an even more secure type of privacy. The mic also makes them suitable to be used for games if you don't have gaming headphones, they will suffice. The control feature allows you to pause music and navigate through music, which comes in handy especially during workouts.

Looks: Skullcandy is known for their ability to make cool looking headphones, that even picky teens will love. They come with a folding construction that makes them fit into purses or small compartments, which means no more hassle of being stuck carrying a solid headphone piece. The foamy ear pillows cover your ear without being too big or clunky. The skull decoration and chrome give them a cool and edgy vibe, while 5 color choices are available so you'll be sure to find a pair you love.

Quality/Durability: The headphones are sturdy, made of a hard plastic that doesn't easily break although the outer layers of paint can easily scratch. But accidental drops aren't much of a problem. The sound stays nice clear and loud for a long time. The nylon cord is stretchy and durable to prevent tearing/breakage. Unlike cheap ear buds, these headphones will last you a long time as long as you take proper care of them.
