First off Skull Candy two words they suck saying they have flat miss lack high end extension, sound dull unrefined without a ounce of quality bass is being kind. As far as the lack of words in your vocab you are correct please take some time to run over to are glossary for newbs.

I would love to get my hands on some other headphones, but I just don't have the money. I hope to have some soon.

I never liked stock headphones, they were all garbage. For a while I used $10 JVCs or Sonys, but after a while, I wanted more. I can't remember why, but I was led to believe that skullcandy was a "premium" brand of headphones. Now I am hearing different. (I would like to know what everyone's beef with them is.)

Do you have any advice about how I write my reviews? Is there something missing? I do know that one of the major problems with describing sound is the lack of words to describe sound.

Thanks,

Yeah, Skullcandy aren't really good headphones. Think they do have one headphone that is alright. Skullcandy Aviators or something.

Saying that I was in Boots the other day and there was this fit girl that was wearing a great looking pair of Skullcandy. It really made her look even fitter and matched the colour of her eyes. Good to get as fashion accessory if you don't really care about the sound.

Well, Confispect got it right on the head, IMO, regarding SkullCandy. They're very muddy and undefined, the bass is just there, it isn't actually good, and comparative to the overwhelming bass, the highs and mids are recessed. And you've fallen victim to peers and marketing, my friend, as had I. But hang around here long enough and you'll overcome it.

Well, for starters, I'd take a look at dfkt's (aka Martin from the front page publishes) reviews. They're really very comprehensive, and I think trying to see what he talks about and emulating that could be a step in the right direction. Confi's also right about checking out the Glossary for Newbies, there's a lot on sound in there. There's a link in my sig, or just search the forum.

Thanks for the compliment. I attend Davenport University, where they stress being able to give and receive constructive criticism. So, not only is that the way I am wired, but it is also what I have been taught very recently.

Thanks,

Well kudos to you! My advice to you and your website is research that's all that's it. Do not limit yourself to one fountain of words and opinions reach to them all. Save up a bit up money so that way you can push out reviews search for what people like and dislike and the in between. Focus on the now and the most best thing from last year or the year before it. A good thing to do is go to people's "already reviewed" read up and see what interest you. Good luck.
