My Skullcandy buds didn't sound very good to me.

Yes, because I can beat the crap out of them.

never buy jvc gummy or marshmallow buds they sound like sht and have no bass its like a mosquito is playing the music.

I used to have a pair of headphones like the ones legodude mentioned they were decent however they succumbed to the same fate as all my other headphones that died. The cord developed a bad connection at the plug and the right side went out.

I have had many sets of headphones over the years and I have to say sennheiser has been the best sounding but least durable and sony is the most durable. I still own a pair of sony fold up headphones from 2001 and they were pretty heavily used I just got sick of the style they were and they fell off quite a bit.

I have just cheaped out lately and skullcandy fit the budget and still sounded decent.
If I was a serious audiophile I would go out and buy a set of 300$ shure earbuds

If you REALLY want good sound quality get BOSE! There spendy but they work like a beast. I will never use skull candys as the bass in them suck! they totally blur out the actual music. BOSE FTW

YEah bose is a very good brand but you have to be really careful with their headphones. My friend said they break very easily. He went through 2 pair in 2 months and isn't too hard on his stuff

I like Skullcandy Smokin' Buds. They are perfect for anything.

maybe you aren't using the right size ear pieces. The ink'd buds I have never fall out and I use em on the trampoline

I have the Sony N/C ear buds that come with the X-series walkman and they are great even with out N/C if your player doesn't support it. I use them for pretty much everything and they always come to the gym with me so they take a good beating. Also they don't split at the neck but at the ear bud so you have have that weird Y dangling all over the place. They also come with several different silicon bud pieces so you can find the right size. Also the off set style, I think, helps them stay in your ear by bracing them against the ear.

These are the non N/C version of the ones I have.

hope you find this helpful.
