Headphone Question

I recently picked up two pairs of headphones for a fairly low price, Bose around ear headphones (Regular, not noise canceling), and Skullcandy SK pros. Noise canceling wasn't a big issue for me as I will be using them in fairly quiet areas.

Which headphones will put out better sound? I tend to prefer a nice range from high's to low's, whereas skullcandies tend to put out more bass than anything else with most of their products. They didn't have any to test where I purchased them, so I figured grab both while they were on sale. I'm a little concerned about the skullcandy's as the customer service is terrible and I haven't had one of their products last me for more than 6 months.

Any help would be great.

If they're still packaged, sell them both for a little under MSRP (since you got them on sale), make back your money and then some, and then go pick up a solid pair of headphones that will be better in the long run than both of those combined.

What type of headphones do you suggest? I could always return them.

Bose will obviously sound outstanding compared to skull candies.. skull candies are trash, stay away from them.

Umm the quality is certainly not bad but come on really now. Their products are so over priced and for the massive amounts of cash they want there are much better products.

I decided to go with the Bose around ears and am fairly impressed with them, but there isn't much bass at all.

I understand that they are completely overpriced, but would a beats by Dre Solo HD be a better choice? I like a nice amount of bass, but highs and lows to go with it.

Sennheiser isn't really an option as I am sticking to products that best buy carries as I had a rather large amount of gift cards.

regardless, you didnt take the advice i gave you two weeks ago which is, do your own research, find out what brands are worth buying and what arent. and by research, i mean dont go to bestbuys website and read the review because 99.9% of those reviews are by retards who dont know the different between mono and stereo.

along with plenty of other people have given you advice, and if you decided to search even this website or even *gasp* the internet, you wouldve found that bose is less then ideal for a choice of headphone along with best buy

i couldve bought a pair of headphones and a set of monitors with the $400 that you think is needed for a single piece of headphone equipment.
