I've had a bunch of Skullcandy earbuds because they have ok sound for the super discounted prices I've paid. The Ink'd & Smokin' suck, but the Titan & Full Metal Jacket have 10-11mm drivers and aren't too bad. They definitely don't last for sh!t though. I've warrantied 4-5 pairs with them, fortunately their warranty process is solid--simple, fairly quick turnaround, and I haven't been let down yet. Since I have 2-3 pairs at any given time, it wasn't much of an issue.

This is not a case of "you get what you pay for" since they're all made in China anyways. Everyone I know anybody that owns Beats by Dre earbuds that cost $100-150, and use it at the gym or boarding or anything besides inside of a humidor, has had to warranty theirs as well, and more than once too.
