The Good The Skullcandy Icon 2 headphones offer a unique style and have interchangeable earpieces. They're inexpensive, lightweight, and include a durable cord and an inline mic with a call answer button for use with music phones.

The Bad The Skullcandy Icon 2 don't fit particularly securely, and bass is anemic. Overall sound is weak.

The Bottom Line Skullcandy Icon 2 headphones are a decent option for teens who prefer on-ear models with a splash of style and a built-in mic for music phone compatibility.

Some people prefer earphones that blend in so much no one can tell they're even being used, while others like their ear cans to stand out from the crowd. If you fall into the latter crowd, the Skullcandy Icon 2 headphones will probably be right up your alley. This on-ear model lists for $29.95 and features Skullcandy's typical eye-catching design. The earphones offer a couple of fun and useful extras, but the sound quality won't impress many users, and the fit may prove to be an issue for active pursuits.
