Audio Skullcandy - Crusher Over-the-Ear Headphones [REVIEW]

I use these headphones everyday for literally every audio purpose in my house, which includes my phone (HTC One), my console (PS3), and laptop. They are bid enough to give you all the bass you could want, and they are still light enough not to be an issue while moving around during my adventures. The cord is lightweight and also includes a mic on it that works for my phone and laptop. I've tried Bose and Beats By Dre and didn't notice anything that would make me want to spend an extra $200. This is the best bang for the buck for me for this style of headphones.I haven't had them long enough to know how long they will last but one thing I noticed was my old set broke because the wire got pulled from the speaker somehow. These speakers have a cord that can disconnect so they won't break. And if that wasn't enough to convince you how much I love these headphones I will get you 10 more reason.
The Over-the-ear design along with dual earcup are made for comfort during extended listening sessions. REX40 driver delivers a smooth frequency response with minimal distortion for clear audio that works great with the built-in Beats our HTCs have. Sensation55 bass extension driver provides powerful bass for a realistic listening experience if you wish to place the battery in the headset which in my opinion isn't needed. Neodymium magnets offer sound reinforcement that way we don't blow out of ears. Acoustical porting allows both drivers to move freely for increased bass and reduced distortion. Built-in amplifier features an auto on/off smart circuit that powers off the amp if your music stops or the headphones have been unplugged for 10 seconds. Amp automatically powers up once music is restored. Adjustable bass control which lets you control the sensation levels to your preference using the bass sensation slider on the left earcup. As I mentioned it includes In-line remote with microphone which lets you answer the phone or stop the music with just one click. Detachable cable that helps eliminate tangles, increases longevity, customizes your look, upgrades your microphone and can be used as an auxiliary cord for my TV when I'm gaming. Now those are all the selling points that draw me to this headset. Hope I change some peoples minds on REAL STUDIO QUALITY headphones

Thanks for the review.

How do they stack up to other over-the-ear type headphones?
