    ok, so I was putting on my skullcandies normally when they snapped in half!
    so the other day i tried to fix them with super glue (which didn't work) then i tried duct-taping them which worked for a while but i think the duct tape stretched and now they don't fit my head.

    i am thinking about trying gorilla glue, but before i go out and buy some i want to know if it would work.

    so I was wondering if anyone had any other ideas on how to fix them?
    any help would be greatly appreciated

    buy a new pair...

    or use an epoxy compound.. JB Weld works pretty good

    yeah, i really don't want to buy a new pair. i'm 15 and don't have a job so $40 is kind of a lot of money.

    warranty?
    if not, use the epoxy. but that might not have enough surface area to work.
    if not, use two popsicle sticks on either side, then duct tape it, as a splint.

    I had a pair of skull candy in-ear headphones they lasted about 3 months
    they only broke cus i fell asleep with them in and layed on the jack while i was asleep and it pulled the wire out so only the L one worked.

    I went out and bought a new pair of in-ear skullcandys, lasted 5 months now :|

    I still have them there awsome

    I call bullsh*t.

    I've had mine for about 14 months - Lowriders, just like the OP's (except in red) - and they're as nice as the day I got them. I've fallen asleep with them on no less than 25 times - probably closer to 50 times, dropped them, tossed them, sat on them, and various other things. They not only aren't broken, but they still work perfectly.

    Oh. And you're 100% right on them sounding great. For $30-$40? Crazy. I use them for audio recording and mixing, as well as for my iPod.

    OP, I'd look into the warranty. If your "friend's friend" really "invented" them, I'm sure he could help you out. I mean, he INVENTED THEM!
