So I have been a big fan of Skull Candy earbuds for a long time, and a few weeks ago at work they proved their awesomeness. We had a gas leak at work, so we had to get out quickly. My headphones were plugged into the computer speaker, and when I got up to leave I just pulled them out of my ears and tossed them on my desk.
We got the all clear to go back in about half an hour later. I come back in and start feeling for the ends of my earbdus only to find them resting in my cappuccino. My boss hears all the colorful language I am speaking, and she comes over to inspect. She took them washed them out, and set them out the window to dry. I had no hope, and went to Target after work and bought a new pair.
I came in the next day, and my boss gave my earbuds back and said to try them. I did, and was surprised to find they still worked as well as the day I had bought them. And now, an added bonus, they have a wonderful vanilla scent.
So Skull Candy has a customer for life. If they can survive the clumsy low vision person, they can survive about anything.
