When I attended BlogHer this year I went to a party where I got a set of fabulous headphones from Skullcandy. They had big pink fuzzy earpieces, which I could luckily switch out for some nice white leather ones. On the plane on the way to BlogHer I was using the earbuds that came with my iPod Nano. While I didn’t quite notice how much they HURT, it was definitely obvious after I used the Skullcandy over the ear set. I had started the first leg of my flight and used my new toy (the Skullcandy headphones). Then on the second leg of my trip home I decided to test out how they compared to the ear buds. After having the earbuds in for about 10 minutes, I couldn’t take it anymore. They hurt my ears so bad! I switched back to the Skullcandy, and it was so much better.
I’m definitely a convert to over the ear headphones. I know they are big and bulky, but TRUST ME, it’s so much better! The sound quality is fantastic, as it totally covers your entire ear. Which is for sure more comfortable than the ear buds. Plus with these headphones it cancels out the outside noise so much better than ear buds do.
Since I don’t have much use for headphones at home I handed them over to my daughter (who actually perfers the pink fuzzy ear pieces instead of the white leather ones, what can I say, she’s a girl). She loves them, and it helps us to not have to hear her games/videos/etc from her DS, which can sometimes have really annoying music. She also listens to her iPod Nano with these headphones. They fit great and she couldn’t be happier.
