    How easy was this mod?

    What steps you took to open up the Skullcandy buds? Thanks!

    (Warning: These ear buds are epoxied together so getting them apart will be pretty tough if you don't take your time)
    -If not then this will happen


    As you can see they broke right in half... not good
    (i had to wrap them back up nice and pretty and do an exchange)

    ok take 2... this time use your exacto knife and cut slowly around the mid part of the buds closest to the speaker. now you should be able to cut them in half with out braking them. and they should pull apart to look like this.


    After getting them apart, take note of the wires. Right ear bud is gold+ / red- Left ear bud is gold+ / green-(or blue) if you work one bud at a time it'll be alot easy to keep track of and avoid mistakes. So de-solder the wires, tread out the old wires in goes the apples, and re-solder in.


    Ok just about done... go ahead and plug them in you iPhone/iPod as they are, and give them a test (dont put them all the way in your ears do to the wires still being exposed) just to see if sound is coming out of each speaker. If everything is good, take some hot glue and put a good glob inside and put them back together. hold'em tight for a few seconds and your all done! and hopefully you love'em





    Now you can say "good bye" to those stock, i dont wanna fit in your ears apple headphones.
    there you go

    I just "upgraded" my iphone headset as well, with the Skullcandy Ink'd headphones too! For $15 , they sound great, much better than the stock ones. Bass is more clear since these are buds. I got mine at Fry's, looked around at other more expensive ones, but opted to go with these. No regrets. Just got back from the gym, glad I did it since one of my old speakers was busted. That was my 3rd set of headsets.

    just a little tip for any future modders, if you grab a hairdryer and heat the headphones up before for about 5mins quite close to where the glue is its going to help you to get them off!

    yup...thats what i did. works great. sometimes the heat shrink snags on zippers though.

    Very nice trick
    I am very happy with the original headbuds though... otherwise I'd give it a go!

    I just finished modding my Sennheiser CX300, it took me almost 3 hrs. I love this earbuds!
    Great tutorial.
    P.S. for those that are afraid of messing up your favorite earphone the Skullcandy ink'd have a good sound and has the mic for $30 at Best Buy.

    dam it is hard to take the iphone 3g headphones apart...i destroyed the grey rubber to finally take the buds apart. But my Sennheiser CX300 won't go back together...sigh...this is tough...shouldn't have attempted. I think I'm now just going to go buy the Sennheiser MM50 ip.

    So I saw that tons of you have modded the Skullcandy Smokin' Buds for this mod.... But I just got the skullcandy Full Metal Jacket Chrome version of these earbuds... and I cant really see how to open them. Im assuming it is the same way as the original SC's, yet I don't want to break anything in the process from doing it the wrong way! Gimme some feedback on this if you can thanks
    i LOVE apple.

    I gave up and just bought a Shure SE210 earphones and the Shure music phone adapter. Pricey but at least no headaches...

    Took the sony ones apart to see how easy it would be and broke one of the wires off the solder and thought what the hell and just did the lot. Im impressed thanks!
