    are the skull candy headphones easy to open up? hows the sound quality? i think im gonna buy another set of marshmallows an a set of skull candy headphones and do both of them to test and compare. would be nice to have a spare set.

    when you do this and get ready to solder the wire back down to the actual headphone, do you have to make sure the wire is pressed up against both metal prongs?

    if i confused you, there are 2 metal pieces going downward and across from eachother. when i pressed the wire up against these metal pieces, it worked. also, how in the hell am i supposed to solder the wire down if im holding the wire in place and holding the headphone itself?? lol im a rookie when it comes to soldering, sorry and thank you in advance.

    how is it too big? all you have to do is TOUCH THE TIP to the soder and it turns to liquid.






    also Im buying a bunch of iphone headphones and skull candy ones cause I have a number of friends that want this done, if anyone is scared of doing this you can pm me and ill make you a set.

    Do most people find it an easy mod? I'm a po' boy, so I can't afford to buy new Marshmallows, but I really want to do it...

    Recommend it for me: Yes/no?

    Just did this using the upgraded $40 apple headphones and the iphone wires+mic. Really easy to do, straight forward, I used all apple parts and it looks exactly as they did before, only with a microphone! Couldnt be happier how this turned out, thanks for the tutorial!!!

    use a wrench like i did lol. itll mess up the back but it came off. maybe if you pul and twist in a wiggling motion, itll come out easy. dont use a gripping pliers. def would break the back.

    I have a bunch of different headphone sets laying around and I am going to try this. What better reason do I need to visit the hardware store for a soldering iron?

    Too bad the Apple headphone wires don't come in black. I might have to try replacing the rubber sleeves too.

    i'm so thankul i found this before i shelled out for the skullcandy fmj's with the mic. it was way easy to do after heating the ear buds up to get them apart. my only problem was i stole my husbands headphones and he didn't tell me he had washed them so the mic doesn't work...so now i have to take them apart but its my fault i didn't check.lol
