Skullcandy Pipe iPod / iPhone dock looks like a femur

I've never really tried Skullcandy's sepulchral range of ear buds, mostly because of some uneducated assumptions that they must sound like crap if they look so neat for such a cheap price. The Skullcandy Pipe iPod / iPhone dock generates a similar reaction: sure, it would be neat to have an iPod dock in the kitchen that looked exactly like a sawn-off, patina-stained human femur — especially with a dab of red nail polish or three — but how great can it really sound for $90? The probable answer makes me feel like a joy-kill curmudgeon: "Acceptable for the price." Skullcandy Pipe Custom iPod Speaker Dock [Buy via Geeksugar]

    Mr. Skeleton, they have a lifetime warranty. If they konked out, send them back for your new pair. I’m a huge fan of Skull Candy. Have the noise cancelling phones and the in-ear for my iPhone.

    It looks a lot more like a log of wood to me, as opposed to a femur… but to each their own, I guess. :)

    I have (well had as my boyfriend’s cats got to them) a pair of skull candy ear buds and they are by far the best ear buds I’ve ever used (though they don’t always fit fantastically). They really do bass well.

    I got a pair of Skullcandy Ink’d – Smokin’ Buds recently just to try a pair of the in-ear phones. I have to say they sound pretty good. Not great, but still good enough to be a pleasant surprise for $15.

    i have skull candy headphones and say that they sound ok, not amazing, but pretty good.

    they have a crappy bassboost thing attached to the wires, the size of most MP3 players which is a pain, but other than that they are well made and sound good.

    I’ll reiterate, based on some Skullcandy ear buds I had: acceptable for the price. They conked out after 4 or 5 months of use, though.
