The Good The Skullcandy iCon Soft headphones offer a unique style with interchangeable earpieces. They're lightweight and include an inline mic and a call answer button for use with music phones.

The Bad The Skullcandy iCon Soft don't fit securely, and bass is anemic. Overall sound is weak.

The Bottom Line The Skullcandy iCon Soft headphones offer up style and sound that only a tween or teen could love.

Some people prefer earphones that blend in so much that no one can tell they're even being used, while others like their gadgets to stand out from the crowd. If you fall into the latter crowd, the Skullcandy iCon Soft headphones might be right up your alley. This on-ear model lists for $34.95 and Skullcandy's typical eye-catching design. The earphones offer some nice extras, but the fit and sound quality won't impress many users.
