I had skull candy titan ear buds and the cord was wrapped in nylon. they were very durable but one day the cord went bad where it connects to the jack. I got a warranty replacement for free for the newer version that didnt have the cord wrapped and it broke after a week of use. in my opinion they are over priced for the quality of sound they produce. I noticed on the titans that when the bass was really high it distorted. i do not plan on buying headphones from skull candy again, they look cool though.
