Truly, you're not helping. =P

@ Morizuno -

I just got done talking to their tech support. Most of the earphones are extremely similar. The Titans, 50/50's, and the FMJ's are pretty much the same. I'm think I'll buy the FMJ's though since they're on sale. o=

Jeez, does everybody on OCN feel this way about Skullcandy? xD
I understand that they're not the best brand, but they're far from the worst.

I'm just looking for the best pair that I can get from them BECAUSE I like them.
And also because I have a gift card. o=

I agree w/ Simca, sell the gift card to some poor sucker, then research what real headphones would suit you best.
This is the best advice, I suggest taking it.

He asked for help to pick a skullcandy, not for your personal oppionion about the brand.

Most of them are very similar, so really just pick one that you like the looks of.

Because this post helped him pick one out better than the other posts above helping get him better sound and comfort for his money than skullcandies could ever hope to give him. Because some people are ignorant of how good audio is. Because everything here has basically been saying get anything but skullcandies please before you waste your money, but what am I saying I'm still not helping

It isn't off topic at all. Everyone made a suggestion to him to get some good headphones and use the gift card for something else.

You aren't going to find any suggestions for skullcandy headphones on this site. They are overpriced/over-marketed/poorly made headphones that are there to entice adolescences->young adults into spending their money on a lesser product. Which is why they incorporate flashy marketing and looks.

Why would you spend any amount on an inferior product. I have no idea to each their own i suppose. The fact he said he would add money to the gift card indicated that the user has money to get a better pair of headphones. He/she could easily sell that gift card and add that cash to the money they were going to put on it and get a good set of cans.

TL;DR no one on this site is going to recommend skullcandy headphones to anyone.

Well, if you feel that strongly about it, what would be the best earphones in the $60 range? (Assuming that I can sell my coupon for $30)
