Oh how I love these earbuds. TJMaxx used to have them for this price locally, and I was fool enough to not buy a bunch. Granted they only list around $20, but the sound quality is way better than you'd expect for the price, either way. That said, given that they seat firmly in the ear canal, you wind up with wicked cord-noise if you do anything that causes the line to rub on something like, say, a zipper, while wearing them. Still, fantastic little headphones.

Checkout price is $12.99. Stupid beta site.

Like @psaux I really like these because they fit great and sound very good. They are as effective as regular earplugs at blocking out sound, which is wonderful at the gym, mowing the grass, etc. They are comfortable enough that I can go to sleep with them in.

My family loves them too but our experiences have varied in terms of reliability. I had one pair last over two years before the plug broke off the bottom of the plug. I only paid $9.99 at FYE for these (they are always on sale there) and I thought two years of nearly daily use was a good value, and replaced them with another set immediately.

My wife and son have had less luck with durability. My son has had three sets, each which have developed a short. My wife had three sets too, one of which had an earbud go dead in six months or so, the replacement of which went dead much quicker and was replaced by FYE, which had a dead earbud in 9 or 12 months.

Yeah, the checkout price is coming up at $12.99. Great earbuds though.

Is there a woot! code to get them cheaper than the 12.99?

@sgoman5674: We are confirming that the correct price will appear at checkout.

What a ripoff! I ordered 3 and ended up paying $12.99 for each. WTF happened?

vote-for2vote-against

...apparently the correct price does NOT appear at checkout. We have notified Datavision. I'm sure we'll hear from them soon.

The link out of woot has a typo, should be fixed on the fly. Try this URL - http://www.datavis.com/cgi-bin/list.cgi?sorfnbr=38&site=WOOT

Very sorry for the mixup. It is a great deal, We won't let you down.

@psaux: cord noise was all I needed to hear. Pass.

@jrobelen: I agree. Thanks for pointing that out, I skimmed over that part.

Okay, the price is right now, but it's trying to charge $4.44 for shipping. There is no free option. I'm trying to order three pairs.

Edit: It's allowing stacking of a coupon that gives $5 off of $25, but then alters the deal so that shipping is charged.

Well I tried it again. Tried to use paypal as the method of payment. Datavision should have had their stuff in order before agreeing to add a deal to woot. Stupid Datavision.

An error was caught during data transfer between Paypal an Datavision. Please check your payment method with PayPal and inform Datavision about this at dumitru@datavis.com

@mysteryd8: A significant discount is applied, and we can not combine offers of stacking coupons on an exclusive discounted item.

Great earbuds, good deal. i see these are Frys every now and then for $10, but either way if you need earbuds, get these. great fit, great sound quality.

I have not been impressed with SkullCandy earbuds. They never seem to fit right, regardless of the tip, and often cut in and out. They sound muffled unless they're aligned JUST right, which is difficulty, since the cord tends to stick and get caught on things. If the stars align to get everything right, they do sound decent, good bass. The annoyance factor is really just not worth it though...

I'd definitely wait for a deal on Razers before going back to SkullCandy.

Tried to order two pair, but had problems with the checkout. I put my info in twice, but never got a confirmation. When I tried again, it gave a duplicate transaction error. So, maybe I get none, maybe I get four. Kind of a bummer, since this is my first deals.woot transaction.
