Photos: Skullcandy Double Agent headphones

The Skullcandy Double Agent headphones offer a unique and stylized all-in-one design, but they're not particularly comfortable, and sound quality is subpar. Unless your main goal is to do away with wires and stand out from the crowd, these are not the best option.

If there's one thing Skullcandy headphones are not, it's boring. Bright colors and funky accents are a bit of a trademark for the company, and the Double Agent headphones are no exception. They come in three color variations: brown (with orange and white accents), green (lime and white), and all black (with some very minor gray accents). Frankly, we think the brown variety is for Cleveland Browns fans only.

Still, no denying the green or brown version will make you stand out from the crowd, and the black model provides an option for those who prefer a more classic look. Other accents are fairly mellow by Skullcandy standards. The trademark skull logos adorn the earcups, band, and joints, and there's some perforation along the leatherette band. The earcups slide along a thin, looped metal band, which sticks up on either side.

The right earcup features an SD-card slot for loading music, a micro USB jack, and basic playback controls for the MP3 player (play/pause/power, volume, and track shuttle). Skullcandy includes a cable for charging and syncing as well as a 5-foot cable terminating in a 3.5mm straight plug for connecting to a separate MP3 player or other audio source.

Listening to music from the Skullcandy Double Agent's internal MP3 player is a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, it's freeing to enjoy tunes without the hassle of wires. Unfortunately, audio quality is not the greatest; it sounds distinctly muffled. It's probably best to leave these in the package and wait for the next generation.
