    I've tried selling my frames as well, but haven't had much luck, but I'm hoping business will pick up, for now I'm stuck with stock, those stock aple ones just don't give me that sound quality I want.

    Yep, amazing headphones, extreamly comfy. The sound quality is very good. However, its way to expensive for what they are.

    I had skullcandys and they didn't turn out to be as god as I had been told, I play my music kinda loud, but only for physical activities these things died out on me, I think it was my right earphone that blewout. Also I didn't like the rubber buds that go inside your ear, at times I would have to place them on the outside, close to being inside my ear, but not quite.

    For $190, i doubt he will be looking for bud's. Some skullcany's look great and are a great price.

    NO skull candies are the WORST from what i've had. i've tried their cheap $15 buds and $30 dollar headphones (around ear) and both had horrible sound quality. i would avoid skull candy

    Yea don't go with skullcandy's. People like them cuz of the way they look but the quality of them is *****.

    Shure is great for earphones really recommend them for that. for headphones with 190 dollars you have lots to chose from. Look into the Grado mentioned above. Bose are pretty good as well.

    Check this site out for more information one headphones and earphones:http://www.headphone.com/
