Skullcandy Holua Bud Headphones - 2009 BCS
The best musical instruments are made from wood, so it makes sense that the Skullcandy Holua Bud Headphones are too. These precision earbuds use naturally resonating wood to pass premium vibrations directly to your dome. Skullcandy also included a crafty wood carrying case and three sizes of silicon adapters for the perfect fit.

Sound amazing. Not bass heavy. which is what I expected - crisp, clear sound. I had to go through my library and listen to some older songs, they sound completely different. Owned for 4 months, they still work. I'm being extra careful with them thoughonly use them at home. Got some 5 dollar crappers for skating.
We have them in Gold on our parent site, Backcountry.com.

I've had these for a few months now and I rather enjoy them. Plus, unlike most of you, I bought them off of brociety for around $35. The sound quality is pretty awesome. My only problem is with skull candy and how they know that their wiring is horrible, but yet they don't try to fix it. Like all of my skull candy's, and friends skull candy's, there is usually always a problem with the wire. But other wise the sound on these things are pretty effing amazing. The bass kicks and the highs are nice. I would buy these again...well for the price I paid for them at least.

Terrible, they cut out every 5 minutes, and the cord cover makes them awkward to use. Dont even figure its worth using the warranty, waste of $100.
they have decent bass but if you're looking for sound quality, and not the wooden look, go for the FMJ's. Best full bass sound from any earphones I have ever heard.

I've had three pairs of these things and both the fit and the sound quality are wonderful. Unfortunately, the wiring tends to be problematic: I lost sound in one ear on the first pair with no apparent damage to the wiring, had a fray where the wiring exits the plug that no amount of electrical tape could keep from degenerating further. I'm currently on the third pair but I don't suspect they'll last much more than the 3-4 months that the others did.

I know for sure the Black and Green have the in-line mic since its new for this year and all the newest Holuas contain in-line mics. However, I can't say for sure if the gold and silver Houlas are newer models.

I owned these headphones for 1 month, before the sound stopped working out of the left headphone. Don't get me wrong, these headphones have great sound quality, but are not durable AT ALL.

Got these headphones off whiskeymilitia as a deal early in the season. When I saw the original price I figured that they would be comparable to my previous pair of shures, which fell victim usual wear and tear. After using these for an entire boarding season I will say that these buds are nice for riding the park and slopes, but don't even come close to the sound quality my shure set had. I feel like the bass and mid-range on these are fine but the highs just seem to be drowned out and barely present. I've messed with all kinds of equalizer settings to make sure it wasn't user error but have had no luck. The overall build quality of these is decent. I've had one bud split open on me but it was nothing a little dap of super glue couldn't fix. The cable has this rubbery coating on it so it doesn't slide like most headphone cables. This turns in to a problem if you have a lot of movement as the cable likes to stick to you and move with whatever it's resting against. I've had it happen to me a handful of times where I will twist my head to look back and the bud will pop out because of the mass amount of friction between the cable and my shirt not allowing for it to easily slide.
Bottom Line: If you want a set of headphones that you can just toss in real quick while you're carving up that line through the POW or launching off that kicker in the park, these are your headphones. if you want a pair of headphones that will give you the best listening experience, walk away from these and look someplace else.
Best Earbuds I have used!
Hey Hey Hey
December 9, 2009
I have used Earbuds from all of the current cool brands including Nixon, 3 kinds from Skullcandy, WeSC, and Seige and these are the best.
I am not going to talk about durability even though I left these in my pant pocket when I did laundry. Pulled them out of the Dryer where I found them and they worked perfectly. The thing is no earbud is super durable, besides the full metal jackets (broke those even).
The thing about these are they sound amazing for music and for using with your phone. Most headphones do one thing well, but these kill it in both areas. I think the wood makes the sound that much better.
Secondly they are the most comfortable earbuds I have used. I know that the rubber tips are all the same, but for some reason these don't irritate at all. I pretty much fall asleep with these things in and never get bothered by them.
Yeah they are a bit pricey, but thats a small price to pay for the best earbud out there and a Lifetime Warranty.

I was looking for a quality earphone that could stand up to the ware and tear i put on my earphones. So I thought "$100? how can they suck?" I obviously found out. I was running with these one day enjoying the great sound quality these put out, i won't argue with that, when my finger caught the cord and pulled it out the jack. The left earbud went out. Loving the Life time warrenty I did replace them for free. (lasted 1 month) Got my second pair, 2 weeks in stepped on the cord and the sound is in and out on the left bud... I also dropped them once and the right bud broke and is now held together with tape. So if life happens to you to and you acctuly do more then just keep your earbuds in a glass jar and only take them out when your sitting still... these aren't for you.
Best sounding earbuds I have ever owned
Life time Warranty (Riding the warranty sponsorship!)
The clicker thing (Man I love not having to reach into my pocket everytime trying to change the song)
Rubbers(3 shapes 2 different style (rubber and memory foam. one is bound to fit you)
Not very deriable for an active life-style
Cord doesn't dangle very well and is a little short for a 6'4 kid that sags his pants
Price ($100 is alot and the sound quality probably isn't worth it if you arent listening to music for atleast 4-6 hours of your day where you can actualy notice the difference)
Another so-so product from Skullycandy >.>
