    Hi, I was wondering whether to get marshmallows or ink'd. I only really care about the sound, so which one has the best sound? I want strong bass, not too muddy, with detailed mids and highs. I listen mostly to rock and reggae.

    watch out, a lot of people will say the JVC's because of a long standing hatred of scullies. I would say the scullies though they have a nice bass and a lifetime warranty which comes in handy

    Please don't waste your money on constantly breaking skull candies. Go for the marshmallows. That was my first "non-stock" headphones, and it pretty much got me into headphones. Great first choice.

    While I haven't personally tried the Marshmallows, my limited experience with the Skullcandy earbuds tells me that their sound quality is absolute sh*t. Terrible upper range and the the bass is muddy.

    Get the Marshmallows. The skullcandies just broke on me yesterday. I have treated those things like my ipod (perfect condition).

    I haven't tried the skull candy's, but I have tried the Marshmallows. Mine broke about one week after I got them. And I don't abuse my headphones. I have three pairs (besides the marshmallows) all them still work, some are 4+ years old, one pair went through the washer and dryer (all Sony too, great quality, they last forever if you don't abuse them).

    The Kramer mod is where you take out the paper and put some sponge in there right?
