I went ahead and purchased a pair Skull Candy Agent headphones against everyones advice. It was on a whim one day when I left my usual pair of riding headphones at home and decided I needed to have some music to listen to. I did my research, talked to people, and read the reviews beforehand so I should have known what I was getting myself into, but I liked the way they looked (don't laugh) and this was the perfect opportunity to purchase them. Sure enough, 2 months after making the purchase they break! Now the right headphone keeps cutting in and out.
I'm going to try to get in touch with their warranty people tomorrow to see if they can help me out. But for now, anyone thinking about buying a pair of skull candy headphones, you have been warned!
