Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"The packaging for these was not as nice as it was for the brown ones and the cord is plastic, not fabric like the brown ones, so I was disappointed by those differences since it was a gift and made the black ones seem inferior."
_
"Its missing the cable."
_
"Overall I think the weakest part of this headphone is the cable and the mic remote thing - both feel a little flimsy side comparing to the headphone."
_
"The first time that happened, after just a few days, I thought the headphones were broken cause I never had a pair that had a detachable cord, then I fiddled with it and pushed it back in and they worked."
_
"But they sent the model that does NOT have the detachable cable, and the ear-cup caps were missing."
_
"I recommend these based on my experience; just beware that there is a model that has a non-removable cable, it is a different set of headphones."
_
"I have had mine for going on 4 years now and I use these 5 days a week 9 hours each day, and they are still great head-phones, I have had to replace the cable a few times, but since they are easily changeable that's super easy."
_
"My other set of over-the-ears was half the price this sells for, and has a very sturdy, soft cable, and isolates sound well."
_
"The jack was too long but easily fixed by swapping the double ended cable with another which had a shorter L-shaped jack."
_
"Another good feature they have is the detachable cord and the microphone and volume control, which is an excellent idea."
_
"The detachable cable is a nice touch."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"After about 5 years and wearing earbuds almost everyday, I am making the change to over-the-ear headphones for comfort reasons ( that and my 5th pair of FMJ's is now broken and skullcandy is refusing to replace them anymore claiming only 1 replacement per pair).After reading reviews and shopping around, I decided on these."
_
"They're comfortable, handsome, and sound crystal clear, especially if you've never used anything other than $40-50 cans."
_
"The most comfortable and stylish, and the best sound if you want more than just heavy-bass driven rap hip-hop music."
_
"Sound quality is great and so is the comfort level!"
_
"These headphones are comfortable and the sound quality is good."
_
"My daughter loves it, very good and comfortable on her ears."

Fit

Fit:
"I'm an average sized lady, and on the smallest setting they mostly fit, but not comfortably."
_
"I have an average size head so I was surprised and disappointed by the fit."
_
"My only complaint is they don't seem to fit my head very good."
_
"Unfortunately, it is kind of a big fit to stash in a backpack or carrying them around, and if you do not use the pouch, they can easily get scratched."
_
"My only two complaints are about the fit and the noise blocking."
_
"They fit around the ear perfectly and are very comfortably but for top quality you might want to find a different pair."
_
"Great bass response and fits comfortably over the ears."
_
"They fit really nicely."
_
"These fit amazing, I love that they aren't bulky! "
_
"I was able to fit the hinge back into place and used superglue to make sure the hinge won't come out again."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Overall I think the weakest part of this headphone is the cable and the mic remote thing - both feel a little flimsy side comparing to the headphone."
_
"The only issue is that it is not compatible with Samsung Galaxy S3 phones where the built in microphone will not work."
_
"I got these for my girlfriend and was exactly what was describesshe loves them and are very compact and seam durableonly give 4 out of 5 stars because i have bought cheaper headphones that we more comfortable and same performance but had a boom mic on it and didn't fold up nice and compact like theseoverall good head phones but overpriced slightly"
_
"This is very weird because all of my other skullcandy's I have owned, the mic always worked."
_
"Good aesthetics otherwise, I had to knock off a star because the Mic's middle button was flimsy."
_
"The microphone and control buttons are also great to have."
_
"More comfortable, MUCH better sound, more portable, MIC3 cord, etc."
_
"Another good feature they have is the detachable cord and the microphone and volume control, which is an excellent idea."
_
"- The mic works perfectly."
_
"I tried the very expensive Bluetooth Sennheiser Headphones, they were nice but the Skullcandy S6AVFM-157 Aviator Headphones with Mic (Brown Gold) are by far much better for me."

Music

Music:
"Music quality is greatly improved, I was so amazed at first, because I'm not used to good music quality."
_
"Loud sound leakage with music half up, ear covers not comfortable or overhead hand."
_
"With this said, I have no problem enjoying my EDMs, hip hop, and other music then twerk music with these headphones."
_
"That being said, I can't have the music too loud, or I lose my thoughts, so I keep it at a reasonable decibel."
_
"These sounds amazing as much as it looks, so what more could a music listener or producer ask for? "
_
"I suppose some folks would say that is a plus, but generally if I want to enjoy my music I don't want to clearly hear the air blowing out of the vent in the ceiling above me at the same time."
_
"I would definitely recomend these headphones, for gaming, music and any other stuff you need to listen to."
_
"Made with great quality but was surprised at how the music sounded."

Noise

Noise:
"Pros: Great design, portable (wonderful faux leather bag), great soundstage for the priceCons: If you adjust the pads on the sliding rails while wearing them, it can be a bit painful due to hearing the echo of the noise through the earpads."
_
"I wore these one time at the gym and had to have them so loud to ATTEMPT to drown out the outside noise, my ears actually hurt after the hour I wore them."
_
"I used them on an airplane and was a little disappointed that they didn't cut out more of the ambient noise, but still a very nice item for making travel more comfortable."
_
"My only two complaints are about the fit and the noise blocking."
_
"I wanted some over the ear headphones to wear at work that give a great audio experience, look phenomenal, and did NOT cancel out noise because I need to be able to hear what is going on around me."
_
"It cancels out MOST noise, but not all, but I'm definitely not complaining."
_
"The way that sound leaks in, I imagine there must be a lot of noise leakage out as well."
_
"The sound quality can be easily eclipsed by outside noise, it doesn't block any noise."
_
"Of all the things I love about these headphones (as compared to the other products I've tried before settling on these, which I'll get to), the one thing that annoyed me most was the fact that in a noisy Starbucks, for me, these did not block out enough noise for me to be able to ignore the noise around me and fully enjoy my music."

Price

Price:
"The $250 price currently on Amazon is ridiculous and for that amount, I'd go with the m50x and still have over $100 left over to get another great pair of cans like the Sennheiser Amperiors."
_
"You could spend more money but I would challenge whether it's better quality in either of these categories."
_
"I am deeply disappointed in the build quality of these, especially at the price point they are."
_
"But these and the Lowrider style always had the same problem for me: cheap wires plugs."
_
"Received a pair of HD Beats last Sept and was not very pleased with the price or quality."
_
"They stay snug on your head while running, and they cost merely a 1 5 of the price of Beatz or any ridiculous, rapper-sponsored headphones."
_
"I bought these as a backup pair for my Sol Republic mastertracks, and because they matched my TwelveSouth bookbook macbook case (which they do nicely), but they just seem kind of... cheap, I guess."
_
"These are near silent when worn and sound amazing (for the price)."
_
"The price it's being offered for it now is VERY reasonable and I'd purchase a second."
_
"Great price performance for a set of cans with a removable cable."
_
"Also, at this price, the sound quality is pretty good."
