Fix In-Ear White/Chrome w/ Mic
Pretty good but not flawless.
I bought these to replace the stock iPhone headphones that had worn out. I needed something for the gym. I have never own'ed a pair of "in-ear" headphones. They do take some getting used to. At first you get anoyed that you can hear yourself chewing, drinking and swollowing. After a while you will tune that out. The bass on these is exaggerated like most Skullcandy products, but not so bad that you can't get used to it. Being a rock and metal buff excessive bass isn't what I care about in a listening device. Listeners of other genres may enjoy these better.
The single biggest complaint I have about these isn't the quality of earbuds at all. The biggest issue I have with them is how hard it is to double click the center button without raising or lowering the volume. Sometimes I just have to pull the device out of my pocket and unlock it to skip tracks. This is a huge inconvienance. And the sole reason I knocked off stars on my rating. For the price this should not have been an oversight.

I have the new Iphone earphones that are so pose to fit well in your ears but they don't, so I apologized to my fix and continued wearing them for working out, running, just everyday stuff and have not yet fallen out of my ears, or failed me these, earphones are perfect. I believe nothing can top them.

Want my Titans back!!
After my backpack was stolen with my Titan earbuds in it, I bought these. I ordered last year's model, but I don't think there'd be a huge difference between the two...
Anyways, the packaging was crazy cool but when I got the buds out I was immediately let down - the wires seemed cheap and plastic-y and the buds themselves were plastic too, unlike the metal Titans. When I tried them out I was even more let down. The sound quality was a disaster! There was now bass in songs I didn't know had that much bass, the highs were muffled, no clarity, and the isolation I had with the Titans was not present at all.
Also, for a product advertised to stay in your ears, they failed horribly! They would fall right out the first chance they got and were not at all comfortable to have in! (And I have 'normal' ears, no problems with the Titans or any other earplug/bud#
Returning these ASAP! DON'T BUY - Skullcandy let me down this time D:

No Fall Out!
I bought the Fix in Ear because of the fact that I had issues with the Smokin' Buds line and the 50/50 Line regarding fitment in my ears. For some reason the ear buds kept on popping out of my ear. I opt'ed for this line and I have to say, I couldn't be happier. No earbud is perfect, but this comes very close. During regular wearing you will not have to worry about your earbuds falling out. I have had an infrequent issue with them falling out during running, but like I said, very infrequently. Thank you Skullcandy!!

If you are not satisfied with the fix, READ THIS
When i received these a few months ago, i was not happy with their fit at all. Ink'd earbuds stayed in better. After writing a negative review, I hardly used them at all. Then one day, i realized my mistake. It is IMPERATIVE that you put the earbud in it's corresponding ear (via the small lettering below the bud). I had them switched around the whole time, providing a terrible fit. The correct way to wear them may seem unnatural, but it stays in your ear like no other earbud i've tried. By reading some negative reviews, i know others have made the same mistake. Please make sure you don't make the same stupid mistake i did. These earbuds are all around winners!

Mini subs in your head
These buds pack some serious punch with the bass.. the sound is very clear. I use them all the time on runs.. If they're not working for you, try different size gels. These buds sound like my Mixmasters, but with a lot more bass. I even prefer these over my Heavy medals! Stronger bass, and more comfy.

I have been looking for Skullcandy buds to rival the Dre Beat Tours & ...
I have found almost a perfect match. I had the 50/50's and the copped these for $70. If you listen to itunes you get the best quality. The acoustics are tuned to challenge Monster AKA Beats by Dr. Dre Tours and they fit just as well. The Smokin Buds were my first bud loves and know we have a knew winner that is crystal clear. The Fix. The only downfall is that even the Mic 3 is not compatible 100%. But so far everything else has cured my music"Fix". -R3GR3TT
