The headphones have a good sound and the FIX claim does truly work. The buds feel more comfortable in my ear than many others i have used before. The sound is much better than stock apple headphones but then again what isn't. My only complains are that the headphones didn't come in the nice packaging that skullcandy ships them with, but then if this is done for cost cutting reasons then im ok with it, i don't need shiny plastic. My one true complain is that the VOLUME bottom DOES NOT work. There is no + or - drawing on the control itself and whenever i try pressing on the corner of the remote the pause/play bottom is activated instead. I think the model sold here is slightly different from those sold directly from skullcandy and therefore lack volume control.
