Skullcandy Complaint - Junk - Earbuds
A couple of months ago, I bought my son a pair of Skullcandy earbuds at Target. They were on sale for some unbelievable amount. A few days later, one of the earbuds fell off-not just the rubber piece but the part under it, too. I figured he probably dropped a book on them or something, gave him the requisite lecture on taking care of his belongings (he denied any wrongdoing, of course) and bought him another pair, this time paying twice as much but figuring they should hold up longer.
He's had them maybe a month, and yesterday, sound was only coming out of one side unless he stood on his head in a lightning storm on a Wednesday. Today, no sound whatsoever...
They were in perfect condition, and I know he keeps his iPod in a special place in his backpack with a jillion pockets. So I'm only left to conclude that these earbuds are a huge waste of money. My daughter has those cheap Gummi earbuds that cost $9.99. She wised up after mine got eaten by cats and keeps them hidden, and she's had them for a couple of years, no problems.
I'm going to see if I can get a refund at Target (unbelievable, but he kept the receipt), but if not, I'm not bothering to return them to Skullcandy after reading reviews about their subpar customer service. They'll go in the trash, and he's just going to have to live with Gummi headphones in Cotton Candy Pink or whatever.
