    They say "hey, I'm listening to music, and I'm listening to it using a pair of headphones that looks fairly expensive, which shows that I'm a true audiophile." Basically, they're ********s.

    They really don't look expensive. They just look like those ****e headphones you'd use in music lessons with the keyboards.

    I kinda prefer headphones to earphones, only because I feel earphones fall out of my ears too easily :erm:

    Because not only do they want to listen to music, they also want everybody else to know that they're listening to music...

    And I think they block out background noise better than in ear ones, but I don't know if that's really why people like them, everyone I know who wears them wears them for their image just as much as anything else. They're cool.

    I have had five pairs of skullcandy headphones in the past year and all of them have broken on me.
    but i still keep buying them because for the cheap price they're actually pretty nice!

    Its retro man

    But nah I prefer big headphones like that to ear phones but only when i'm not around people that way I can block out more of the world and escape into the music
    But if im out and about earphones go in as your more likely to catch my attention with them
