Button

Button:
"The pause play button broke around this past April and one of the earbuds stopped working recently."
_
"The sound quality is Realy good for the price, however the button for ending calls is broken and rattels would be a 5 star accept for that one problem"
_
"scratched with broken button, in not original packaging, this was used pair."
_
"Nice that they so have a mic and button tho."
_
"Have troubles keeping it in my ear(It slips), but other than that the earbuds work fine, they look nice, theres a microphone(Its great because I use it when me and my friends play the Playstation 4 online), I've had it for over a month and both earbuds still work nicely, you can also pause your music with a button on the side, My final verdict: Great Quality for a $16 pair of earbuds, definitely worth the buy if you don't care for paying $175 for a pair of earbuds(Dre Beats)"
_
"Although the mic button is a nice touch it would be much better if it also allowed you to control the volume as well."
_
"Likely due to the poor packaging, the mic non-functioning and the button on the in-line block that should have had some function appeared to have no function during music playback or during calls."
_
"Well made, has multi functionality button, it states built in mic but haven't tested to see."

Cable

Cable:
"Has a flat cord so it doesn't tangle as easily."
_
"I first saw my friend with the Ink'd and fell in love immediately, it has powerful vocals and medium bass just the way I like it.. only think is that if not handled with special care the cord can be easily damaged."
_
"Good earbuds best ones I had so far quality amazing flat cord only bad problem is when you turn these high you have a lot of volume leaking out but it's amazing recommended"
_
"work great, comfortable fit, stay in well while runningI thought they would have a mic in the cables, but i got wrong pairIf not needing mic for talking on phone, these work great as straight up headphones"
_
"My main complaint about them is that you can hear any little touch rub of the cable against your clothes or skin."
_
"They have however very good high quality cable that doesn't tangle, has very good bass (if you are looking for one) and very good highs."
_
"the flat cable is amazing for untangling"
_
"The sound is amazing, but the cable is extremely short."
_
"I like the flattish cable on them since it seems more durable and doesn't get tangled as easily."
_
"In this review I am going to tell you about the Skullcandy Inkd 2 headphones and their amazing cord and listening experience."
_
"The Inkd 2 are made with a flat cord so if they do get tangled they come untangled very easily."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"So comfortable compared to those hard, uncomfortable freebies that come with i-Everything! "
_
"All in all I think they are really good but my only complain is that I'm someone who listen to music all the time and if you use these deep inside your ears (that's where you get the best sound) they get uncomfortable after an hour or so of use, so they are not very comfortable."
_
"It's a good thing to go outside of one's comfort zone and try different brands of earphones, but I think I will pay the extra $ for the Apple earbuds."
_
"PROS:+ Great value for the quality+ Good sound quality+ Durable+ Comfortable+ Block out exterior noise+ The rubber does NOT constantly fall off of theseCONS:- Slightly more expensive than other earbuds but you'll buy 3 to 4 pairs of those to one of these! "
_
"These are really comfortable and the sound is amazing! "
_
"Extremely comfortable with different size covers and perfect volume sound."
_
"If felt comfortable and all, but it'd be great if it didnt just suddenly break in a month with no audio output...."

Earphone

Earphone:
"And the price is making it even a better decision, I have tried many earphones cheaper than the Apple Iphone Earphones and always figured that's why they weren't as great but obviously these beat it by far and still are over half as cheap."
_
"I am not crazy about the style of earphones (how it you have to insert into your ear) but normally because it is uncomfortable and hard to keep in place."
_
"The sound wasn't that good and they broke much quicker than the Skullcandy earphones that I bought in a store."
_
"While good in audio quality, these things are the worst in terms of reliability and these are my third skullcandy earphones that have failed to last over two months."
_
"If you do not care as myself, it is a good pair of earphones."
_
"I received a pair with that was missing the large earbuds, also the left earphone did not work."
_
"I would recommend this to anybody who wants some decent earphones."
_
"I recommend you getting these if you're looking fairly priced, good quality earphones."
_
"These are amazing and wallet friendly earphones."
_
"The sound wasn't that good and they broke much quicker than the Skullcandy earphones that I bought in a store."
_

Fit

Fit:
"Only problem I have is the plug in is too wide to fit in to my iPhone with the case on."
_
"The sound quality is pretty good for the price but the simple packaging means only one set of rubber tips so if your ears are small like mine they don't fit well"
_
"They came with a couple of earbud sizes to swap out but it's not the most comfortable fit."
_
"The ear peices fit nicely in the ear and that is usually why I am unable to use ear phones (I understand this is a personal issue, nothing to dock the item for).My 2 stars are mainly for two reasons:1."
_
"They did not fit well and made my ears sore."
_
"Only drawback is when taking the rubber ear pieces off and trying to put on new ones, they don't see to fit correctly or it's just really hard to get them on."
_
"Sound is excellent, and they fit my ears very well which helps block out the sounds around me."
_
"Fit in my ears great"
_
"Great bass they fit well and look good."
_
"Perfect color.. perfect fit for the ear."
_
"The Inkd 2 were designed to fit comfortably in your ears for a great music experience."

"I've used only Skullcandy headphones for my music in the past 6 years, and have never been more happy with a pair than the 2.0 version of Ink'd."
_
"This is an excellent strategy for accurately perceiving words performed by the human voice, but it destroys music - you won't hear what you're missing."
_
"Have troubles keeping it in my ear(It slips), but other than that the earbuds work fine, they look nice, theres a microphone(Its great because I use it when me and my friends play the Playstation 4 online), I've had it for over a month and both earbuds still work nicely, you can also pause your music with a button on the side, My final verdict: Great Quality for a $16 pair of earbuds, definitely worth the buy if you don't care for paying $175 for a pair of earbuds(Dre Beats)"

Price

Price:
"I compared them to other headphones of the same price range and skullcandy doesn't act good even compared to them."
_
"The sound is good so long as u don't max out the volume I'm happy with them for long train rides to and from they keep out the ugly sounds of the big city and Nyc train traffic and the people as well either with them off they block out enough noise when the music is off and when the music is pumping u don't hear anything ur in ur own world so I'm happy oh and the cords don't tangle at all which is great so for the price I'm happy u really can't go wrong so if u want good sound a cheap price ur going to be alright and I'm a really into systems that have to have very good sound quality so I'm not a noob or a jimmy rigged getto systems blaring crap u can't under stand and gives u a headache "
_
"The sound quality is Realy good for the price, however the button for ending calls is broken and rattels would be a 5 star accept for that one problem"
_
"Not the best sounding earbuds out there, but for the price, they are great."
_
"Even though the price was low I am very disappointed by the performance."

Quality

Quality:
"I tried others by Sony & JVC and their sound quality wasn't as good."
_
"While good in audio quality, these things are the worst in terms of reliability and these are my third skullcandy earphones that have failed to last over two months."
_
"Terrible sound quality, no bass at all."
_
"The sound quality was horrible, the HTC earbuds and galaxy earbuds beat the heck out of it."

Rubber

Rubber:
"Now the rubber is very thin and flimsy, so they feel like hard plastic inside your ears."
_
"my only qualm about these headphones is that the rubber buds can be uncomfortable after a period of time."
_
"And that's not all there is still excess plastic not stamped off and its the hard type of plastic casing (not the nice rubber on the older ones)The sound is a little empty, like lack of proper equalization output, There is also a very low hum when i plug into my phone, or ipod that is just there."
_
"Again, not the best sounds but bass is there and after trying all 3 different rubber buds I found the larger buds to close ear cavity pretty well and isolate noise."
_
"Only drawback is when taking the rubber ear pieces off and trying to put on new ones, they don't see to fit correctly or it's just really hard to get them on."
_
"If this is an issue that you often experience, you can easily change the rubber tip of the headphones to better fit your ear; another product and benefit that Skullcandy headphones offer."
_
"PROS:+ Great value for the quality+ Good sound quality+ Durable+ Comfortable+ Block out exterior noise+ The rubber does NOT constantly fall off of theseCONS:- Slightly more expensive than other earbuds but you'll buy 3 to 4 pairs of those to one of these! "
_
"These seem to block out exterior noise well and there have been no issues with the rubber tips falling off as is so common with every other set of earbuds we've had."
_
"I just wanted to see how they would fit with different size ear pieces, but the original rubber pieces they came with fit well."
_
"I really loved the original Ink'd style, as both a runner and a person with small ears, having the option of switching out the rubber pieces was great and for the price, the sound quality was good."
