Skullcandy headphones are worth the extra money, so I've discovered. At first I was one of those believers that they were banking on the kids to beg their parents to buy them the earbuds with a rainbow of colors or styles simply because of aesthetic reasons. Then I won a free pair (OK, so I didn't spend the extra dough on them, there, you caught me) and damned if they aren't the best set of earbuds I've ever had, especially for taking to the gym. While they might not block the sound of my blasting music for the people around me, they do an excellent job of making sure that I can't hear anyone else's crap at the gym. And THAT is worth paying for. However, if the company wants to use Kate Upton
as their spokesmodel, I'm not going to complain about that either. Are you ever drawn to buy something more expensive just because it looks
a certain way?
