    Well, they don't look fake.
    If you want some cheap earphones, check out the JVC Marshmallows or JVC Air Cushions.

    I wouldn't ask about skull candies here, there are a lot of people who have never even owned a pair that seem to think they are utter crap. I own some FMJ's and had smokin buds, they were really good.

    Nah the JVC ones are apparently rubbish my friend said he has them he said they're awful, but I have heard good things about Skullcandy on this website, and apparently these ones have immense bass, and they have good quality sound for such a cheap price. Is this true?

    I've had six different pairs, including the smokin buds, and they all sucked badly.
    Get Sennheiser CX500s - A billion times better.

    No more than £20-£25 if you are gonna suggest anything. I would get the Appls in ear ones but they don't make them anymore they have the £60 ones (N)

    but the problem with me is that my iPod damages every single pair of earphones i have. My first iPod touch killed about 4 and I got it replaced by Apple and the new one has ruined 2 pairs and theres no point paying loads for a pair that will last like 2 months or somehtng. What happens is slowly, in one of the sides, the volume dramatically decreases and then the other one and suddenly, both of them just decrease so much you can barely hear anything even at 100% volume. I listen to music on them say in a week, 5 hours, no more, and I have a volume limit of 80% and the main vlume is about 60% up anyway so thats no where near full blast I have no idea why this is happening
