Generally speaking it's a poor earth connection in the wiring to the plug or wires to blame. Follow my guide on the blog to find out where;

SOURCE: my headphones have stopped working

Like most unique trades, the majority of people dont know how to solder, besides you should not have to solder a product like this anyways. Skullcandy does in fact have a lifetime warranty, after visiting their site, the direct link to the warranty info is
Hope this helps!

I had the same problem and realized that it was because the SD card must be formatted as FAT16 not FAT32 or NTFS.

SOURCE: Sh=kull Candy Headphones not working...

there is a possibility that the plug is not going all the way in, in the Ipod. Have you tried using other headphones on Ipod? Sometimes the plug can become unscrewed and and doesnt fit properly. It will work on some receptacles and not in others, due to differences in tolerances.

SOURCE: Dog chew cable in half on my skull candy

Yes there are ways to splice cables together, This depends on the extent you would like to go to. if splice needs replaced near end replacement end can be bought at radio shack. You can splice wires together by striping the wires back and reconnecting them together making sure all wires are connected together and not touching one another, Twist red to red white to white and ground to ground, wrap with electrical tape each by them self use heat shrink to make it look a lot better.

SOURCE: My skull candy skullcrushers's audio jack fell out.

Simply cutt what is left of the old plug off and buy a new plug. You will need to solder the wires on. You will find when you have baired back the cable two coloured wires and two earths. The earths fit together on the metal flange that comes out of the main body of the plug. The coloured wires go on the the two smaller flanges (left and right channels). If you get them wrong way round reverse them you won't do any damage. Make certain the earths don't come into contact with the R & L channels wires or terminals and the left or right don't touch each other. The T shaped end on the large flange is to grip the cable body, bend the tabs to grip the cable.

Which is better?

To be honest neither are that great, look at some Sennheiser headphones, They are no dearer than the banded once you mentioned but are far superior in every way, More efficient, Better quality, better construction.

So when I listen with my headphones now, they only play the background music (if that makes sense). The music is almost echo-y and sounds far away. I rarely get the main music/singer, and if I do hear...


It sounds like this might be a setting on whichever MP3 player, or sound device that you are using. You should check for an "EQ" on your device and try setting it to a different setting to make it so you can hear the music and vocals of a song.

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this,

Cant hear friends on xbox360

Hi. It sounds like you are using your Skull Candy headphones through your TV's headphone jack. To make your friends' voices play through your headphones, first press the big X button in between the Back and Start buttons on your controller. Next, scroll all the way over to the right with your left joystick and select Preferences. Now, click on Voice. Change the setting here to either Play through speakers or Play through both.

I can hear my game and my friends but they cant hear me

This means your mic has a short in the wire or is broken somewhere. Im pretty sure the skull candy lowrider headphones don't have a built-in mic. If this is your problem than you need to buy a mic.

My gi skull candy was cracked because I accidentally drop it... The two ear piece are loose already.. But the quality of the sounds is still ok... Pls help me I'm here at Singapore now

Try pressing the brackets that hold the earpiece in place, back together. This is the best I can tell you. I don't know where the crack is located at on the headphones. If you want to go this far, you can try to glue or tape the crack in place, but this is only if you want to try this. I say, if you are still getting quality sound from the headphones, then the headphones are still doing its job,

All of sudden my left ear bud stopped working. if you move the wire around it works for a couple of seconds. i did not do anything to damage them...

Skull Candy rarely has issues in the manufacturing process, but mistakes can happen to the best of us. Skull Candy has a lifetime warranty against defects on all their products, so if you contact the company they should be able to guide you through the replacement process. It sounds like too much stress was put on the cord, however. This can happen just from having the headphones in your pocket without being in a good quality case.

It isn't a headset issue. This is an issue that should be easily solved by going into the options menu of your game.

Skull Candy Headphone problem

The wires can easily break inside the insulation without showing it outside. The good news I'm about 99% sure it isn't in the headset or at least one would work.

So, can you see any markings where it got caught in the door? If so I would cut the cable a couple of inches towards the headset from there and install a new plug . The plug is wired as follows: bare coppers both go to the contact that leads to the large sleeve on the plug. The other two wires each go to one ot the other two contacts. A little solder and you're on your way again.
