Skullcandy's newest ear buds, Fix Buds ($70), set out to settle a long-time problem: that is, buds falling out of your ears. They feature a special hook design that not only fits in the ear canal, but also over the antitragus, the small protrusion underneath. Not only are they secure, but Skullcandy claims the ear buds offer deep bass and a premium sound. An in-line mic on the left cord offers full iPhone functionality, including answering calls, skipping tracks, and changing the volume. Included with Fix Buds is a hard-shell carrying case.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
