SkullCandy in-eat headphones arena bad. Could def do worse, even at that price point.
If you want actual value and toptop sound, id go with Shure's new lineup.
But if you love the style, wanna show Knick pride, not a terrible bet; SkullCandy overpriced, but their sound, while not great, is underappreciated, IMO.
I forgot to say... But Jay-z's new line is super sick. Both inear and headphones.
Insane style -- not NYK tho -- vgood sound, and unrivaled bass. Good all around sound, but designed to be wkrldbeaters for rap/hip hop/reggae/ and some rock.
klipsch image s4 for 80 bucks best headphones u will find check cnet
Klipsch S4's are amazing. I'd pay an extra 15-20 and go w Shure for the build and a better fit (IMO), but, tough to argue vs the s4's.
Think those are only in ear tho.
If he is willing to drop 300 bones and wants unique bold style, I'd 100pcnt go w jay-z's. If he likes listen to a lotta hiphop or even rock, i think its a nobrainer at his price range.
Inear are like 150 and reg are ~300 I think (pricy, but relative to peers and the inears not bad value).
Unless you're dying for NYK ones. If the $ is relatively inconsequential and you aren't some sort of sound afficiando (who the f is), SkullCandy ones tough to best w that criteria in place.
