Just discovered these sound rather decent if you press them into your ear a ton. I guess these "xtreme" headphones are designed to be smashed into your skull by a xtreme helmet while you're xteming on a xtreme snowboard or something xtreme. Wearing them without any inward pressure like I have for the last 2 months makes them sound terrible. I guess I'm not xtreme enough.My Apple earbuds broke last night while on vacation. Wanted a replacement set for the slopes today, but the only thing I could find in the ski village was a store selling Skullcandy Ink'd 2.0 earbuds. Holy hell I have never in my life had a worse pair of headphones. They don't play music, but rather just flat noise. Even with my phone set to bass booster and treble reducer there is absolutly 0 definition to the sound.
But the worst part is that I don't think the Skullcandy design team has actually seen what a human ear looks like. These things hardly fit, are super uncomfortable, and stick out of your ear like little antenna. They were for sale in a "extreme sports" store aimed towards the GoPro snowboard bros, but I don't understand how these could fit under a helmet.
I wasn't expecting much when I bought these for an incredibly overpriced $29.99CAD but man, its actually impressive how bad they are.
