While shopping for a new pair of buds, I saw a pair of these on sale for $35 and at the time I had a wallet with money to burn so I figured why not. Especially given how my TiTANs kept flying out of my ears on the rails at the skate park. I used a number of devices to get some mixed results, including my cellphone (Samsung Mythic), my Sony PSP, my iPod Touch, and my Gateway Netbook. For starters, on any of the devices, the sound leaks like crazy. I mean, yeah that's great if you're one of those people who likes to be aware of what's going on around you, but when I'm blasting fast paced screamo while shredding a bassline over the halfpipe, I don't wanna hear any wannabes or for them to hear my messed up taste in music. I gotta say, overall, they didn't stay in my ears much better than my TiTANs did, so if that's why you're getting them, I'd recommend checking out the in-ear ones. These don't hold up extremely well to high tension either, but they're more resistant to humidity and water than any pair I have, so if you go jetskiing or skiing maybe you should look at em. As for quality, I got really mixed results. On my iPod, cellphone, and PSP the quality was pretty good. I could hear the bass, solid like the rock I play on full volume. The drums tear things up so the drivers are decent. The treble stands a little out but the bass outlines it well. But on my laptop, it sounded just so terrible. It sounded so bad my dog acted like I had the plague. Any song sounded like pop from the 1700's that somehow got recorded on the world's first microphone. I can't tell you how bad they are you plan on using a laptop like mine. Overall, I'd still say the quality was pretty good on mobile. Aside, from the music leaking anyway. But the fact that they don't really stay in my ears kind of defeats the purpose of them, so thumbs down guys.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Depending on your device, these results MAY vary;
I used my laptop (Gateway Netbook) and my Sony PSP, along with my Cell Phone (Samsung Mythic).
From what I heard in my cell phone, bass was great, far surpassing any other headphones I've used. They went LOUD. Loud like the horns in a football stadium. And I like my music extremely loud, so that was a pro for me. However, SkullCandy Titan were definitely enough, and these headphones are meant for high performance drivers; the quality of Titan was higher than that of GI due to driver inefficiencies. Go with Titan if you're going to use a cell phone like the Mythic.
From my laptop, they went EXTREMELY loud, due to a far better driver. The bass ripped my ears while the guitar and vocals eviscerated my brain waves like C4 going off in my head. I like my music loud, but maybe not that loud. Far better quality, again, because of the driver. A GREAT choice for at home listening when you're doing homework on a desk.
Now for my Sony PSP. To me, it's somewhat arguable whether the Apple iPod or Sony PSP is better, but price made me go with a PSP with a 32Gb memory card. I assume the iPod has a much better driver, mostly due to the look my bro gave me when he tried out my GI's. And the iPod is, without much contest at all (if any), better for audio content playback. The bass worked very well, solid and clear. Cymbals and foot pedal beats made my GI's vibrate, a nice touch to the rich sound. The vocals were great, overlapping and intertwining with the guitar and drums, with bass outlining the whole thing, resulting in Beethoven's untamed symphony on wheels. If your in the car, these headphones suit you well when you're going to that long trip to see the colleges you're applying to. Now, if you have an iPod, imagine a circus of drum patterns blowing an elephant sized guitar rift at you with the porcelain beauty that only God himself could create. These are truly amazing headphones, and $70 is very modest for what you're getting.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Titan (Mic) takes a hardcore housing and adds unmatched design precision. Attacking Bass, Natural Vocals and Precision Highs are packaged in a bud that fits and sounds like no other.

I've had two pairs of these. I had the ones with the metal cable and now I have the ones with the fabric cable. I used my Sony PSP, my Gateway Netbook, and my Samsung Mythic to see what they had. Before saying how they were, I should say that my second pair broke last week. If I put them at a certain angle, sound doesn't come out the right ear bud. However, I have had them since June, that's 9 months. They've been through the wash twice. My friends have yanked them from my ears aggressively countless time when joking around. They're by far the most durable headphones I've had, so for forty bucks they'll last you a long time.
On my cell phone, they were loud enough that I can't complain, and blocked out all noise on max volume. But only on max volume. Since either way, I'm always listening on max volume, that didn't bother me, so the noise isolation was good as far as I'm concerned. Then on my PSP, same deal, expect the reaction the EQ was better. The bass does not stand out, but it's definitely there and noticeable. The treble is definitely louder than the bass. I like treble so again, the quality was good as far as I was concerned.
On my laptop, this was whole different story. It sounded like I was listening to it live, and not in a good way. There was a more than good amount of static, and it wasn't loud at all either. The EQ didn't affect the quality, and of course, being a laptop with countless EQ options and combinations, it was still noticeable. But, the quality was so poor, the deaf would be bothered by it. Absolutely deplorable. The bass wasn't even there, gone, evaporated into nothing. Vocals sounded so bad that everything I heard sounded like the person singing had emphysema and bronchitis, and I've had pneumonia and bronchitis so I know what that might sound like. Terrible for at home listening if you plan to use a computer. On the go, great mobility and durability, and quality you can't complain about.
Yes, I recommend this product.

will these headphones work on sony ericsson satio and cowon iaudio 9?

They should if the device has a 3.5mm input, which is standard in almost all cell phones, laptops, iPods, and well almost everything really.

Only one earbud works, how can i fix this?

Only one earbud is working, the left one. I have only had these head phones for a few weeks, and today the right earbud stopped working, is there anyway to fix this? i dont think its the music i listen to because my last pair of titans lasted longer than this, six months.
Mine broke almost 100% but when a friend replaced the wire, the worked, but they did not work well.

do the titans have a nylon braided braided cord or not? some reviews say they do and some dont. so what is it really

The newer ones (model # S2TTCB-047) have a nylon braided wire (for all those saying otherwise, the cords are wrapped with nylon.) The older ones (model # S2TTCZ-003) had an aluminum braided cable, which was also covered in a thin layer of rubber. They also had solid chrome metal housing. I have both pairs, but the newer pair outlasted my older by 6 or 7 months (my old aluminum ones lasted 2 or 3 months while my newer nylon ones lasted 9 months.) So, to answer your question, yes.

does this headphone have a compartment?

My model does not. I bought mine at Zumies, and they are the black ones. Honestly, I don't know why mine are slightly different, but I can say, whatever the reason is, they do not have a pocket.

How durable are these headphones?

I have broken 4 MSLX3000s, 2 Senheisers (forgot the model) and a few others (there earpieces have fallen off, they've snapped on top), so I was wandering what kind of beating these 'phones could take (IE - how strong they are)

Thanks.
Yes as long as you're not throwing them around. I'm very careful with mine, always making sure not to tug on the cord and I always take mine off when doing any strenuous activities or things where they could damaged in any way. I've had mine for 5 months now and they still work like they have when I got them. And the drivers hold up well; I blast mine on full volume every time I use them, and I use them every day. Overall, yes, if you're careful and take care of them.

Do they look bulky when you wear them?

Yes. I have had teachers point specifically the size of them out. In fact, my social studies teacher commented on how they made my head look a little smaller. They look big but don't get me wrong, they also look good.

is the skullcandy G.I. MP3/cellphone compatible, I am lookin to purchase one for my grandson for xmas. Also is this model XBOX Compatible

Depends on the cell phone. Most are but I know a number of fellow students that have a different size input, so they need an adapter. Also, not so great quality on most cell phones due to the poor quality drivers that they use, plus bad playback software. They're better for iPods and laptops.
