I have these in hot pink, and they rock! I cannot tell you how many pairs of earbuds and earphones that I have gone through without success. The problems I've had is they either break or do not fit my ear canal properly so I have to crank the volume up extremely loud where other people can hear. With Skull Candy, I am fine. I hear the music just fine, and all of the outside noise is drowned out. Instead of having my volume at 20, I am five at a 5 or 7. These work. I bought mine at Walmart, and the price was extremely reasonable.
