Not ev­ery­one feels com­fort­able us­ing big over-the-head ear­phones. And in­ear ones of­ten don’t fit well. Keep­ing this in mind, Skull­candy has come up with the Fix, an in-ear head­phone that is de­signed to fit the ear well. Once worn, even when pulled with a bit of force, the ear­phones don’t fall off. Be­sides this nov­elty, there aren’t any­thing in­no­va­tive in terms of the de­sign. On the left lead are the vol­ume con­trols and the mi­cro­phone. How­ever, the mic doesn’t work with just any de­vice, com­ing into ac­tion only when plugged into an ipod, ipad and iphone.

Priced at 3,899, it is not meant for the bud­get-con­scious. But for those who are will­ing to spend, the Fix will not dis­ap­point as it of­fers great sound and deep bass. It was soft on the ears at con­trolled vol­umes, though there was dis­tor­tion at high vol­umes.

Usu­ally head­phones are dif­fi­cult to store. But this Skull­candy Fix has a small black pouch with a skull em­bossed on it for stor­age. There are additional ear buds that can be changed ac­cord­ing to need.
