The Saturday Review: Skull Candy Ink'd (and Giveaway) *UPDATED* – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC

Picture it, Sicily 1942-oh sorry, way too many late night Golden Girls episodes lately.  Where was I?  Oh yes, picture it:

I go to the gym, pick a machine, turn on my ipod, choose my playlist, put my ear buds in, hit play, stow ipod away in my work out pants pocket, begin work out.  Thirty seconds in, my right ear bud falls out.  Okay, no problem.  I reach down, pick it up  and stick it back in my ear.  I’m back on track, 45 seconds later, my left ear bud falls out.  Dammit.  I stick that one back into my ear, continue my work out.  Two minutes later, my right one falls back out…it goes on and on.

Does anyone else have this problem?  I have being fighting ear buds during work outs for YEARS.  I’ve tried over the ear ones, cheap ones, semi-expensive ones, ones that my ears to be sore, ones that aren’t loud enough, ones that are too loud.  I had come to the conclusion that I was going to have to break down and buy an expensive pair of ear buds so I could get a decent work out in without having to deal with falling ear buds.  And then, someone turned me onto this awesomeness that are Skull Candy Ink’d earbuds.

The thing I was immediately impressed with was how comfortably they fit in my ears.  A lot of ear buds are so uncomfortable that I can’t wear them, but not these.  And oh my goodness, the sound is AMAZING.  I’ve heard certain instrumental parts of my favorite songs that I never knew existed!  When I have them in, I can’t hear anything but my music.  In fact, I was wearing them at work, and a co-worker walked up behind me, started talking, and I never knew it.  When I turned around and saw him there, I screamed.  (And I may have peed my pants a little bit.)  And the best part about my new ear buds?  They have yet to fall out of my ears during a work out.  And at around $20 a pair, they’re not too expensive!  I think I’m in love.

Now for the fun part.  Because I feel like everyone deserves a chance to have a ear bud fight-free work out, I’m going to giveaway a pair of these wonderful little gems.  AND because everyone needs new tunes with new ear buds, I’m going to throw in a $15 itunes giftcard.
