    alright, so i love my skull candy headphones. but a while ago i accidentially put them through the washing machine. i was pissed and they won't work now. so im wondering if there is any way to fix them they have been sitting around for a couple months and they are dry and still won't work. There is no structural damage that would be visable. could a component be fried? please help

    If it's been a while then no luck. You would be golden if right after you put it in rice.

    Also, get headphones not skullcandy. kthxbai

    Just contact Skullcandy. I think that they have a life time warranty.

    This might not be covered by the warranty. These warranties are normally for malfunctions that don't include abuse of misuse of the headphones.

    The problem is that they are Skullcandy's in the first place...

    Your $10 could've bought better.

    skullcandy has lifetime warranty so just send it in without saying it's water damaged. i doubt those cheap buds have some litmus paper inside.

    Yeah, yeah they really are the worst. Skullcandy literally does ZERO research and development. They have NEVER developed a headphone, just took OEM designs.
