Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates recently, it has been really busy at the TechHub! Which is great because all the incoming freshmen need to get their tech questions answered somewhere, and where better to go for those answers than the TechHub? So I am going to take some of these questions and answer them right here (and make this a continuing segment on the TechTalk blog).

The quality of the SkullCandy 50/50 earbuds can be summed up in three letters, w-o-w. These are an incredible set of earbuds especially considering the price (only $39.99 through the TechHub). Out of the headphones I have tested, Knights of Cydonia has never sounded as good as it did when I listened to it with these earbuds.

While SkullCandy Ink’d are definitely a decent pair of earbuds, they are just that…earbuds. You have to place them in your ear canal, and no matter what you do, you always run the risk of them slipping out of your ears. This is a problem that really occurs when you are exercising or working outdoors. So when looking for a solution, look no further than the SkullCandy Lowrider.

The great SkullCandy vs Apple earbuds debate is one that will continue to rage on for a long time to come. If I were to throw my two cents out there, while Apple has a fine product, SkullCandy beats the Apple earbuds like a piñata. Sure, the included Apple headphones are indeed free, but there are several reasons you should spend a couple of extra bucks for the SkullCandy Ink’d ones.

I have been a proponent of Skullcandy equipment for a few years now. I  believe for the price and the great warranty (limited lifetime) they offer the best product for a reasonable price.

One of the most popular blogs at the UC Davis Bookstore TechTalk site is our look at SkullCandy vs. Apple Earbuds. So this week, I decided that we should check out some SkullCandy headphones that are very popular at the Bookstore. Starting first, John is going to take a look at the SkullCandy Titans headphones and that review should be posted later today. After that, I will be looking at the Ink’d, Lowriders and 50/50 headphones later in the week. So stay tuned!

I have been an avid iPod user for about 4 years, and for 4 years I have witnessed the untimely deaths of my Apple earbuds. These neatly packed, white headphones Apple supplies with every iPOD it sells are fine for use for the first week. Then you need to go out and replace them, because you played your Metallica louder than 1/3 the volume bar on the iPod. To replace the Apple headphones with the same thing you will need to drop $29 for a headphone that gives you now both volume control and a mic. These are both great features that are great to have, yet it is still the sound quality and durability that is lacking.
