Question My Ink'd SkullCandy Earbuds have no 'R' & 'L' on them: HOW to tell apart?

I just got my Ink'd ScullCandy earbuds from Staples for $12, and when I took them out of the box, there was no way to indicate which earbud is for which ear. Does anyone have earbuds like this, and how could i tell them apart? Is there like a .mp3 file that I can listen to to tell the difference between right and left earbud?

Here is a picture of my earbuds:

Find a CD or something that you KNOW has audio coming out of either the left or the right channel if it comes out of the right channel in the left ear but is supposed to be the right channel you know you have the right side and not the left

This isn't possible. Have you examined them very closely? There should a be a tiny 'L' or 'R' (either engraved, or written in ink) on each one respectively.

their is no indication on the inkd buds, but i assume if you hold the flat part of the cord with the writing on it and follow the individual split cords to the buds, you would probably have a good guess.


also, what the hell does it really matter? they are 100% symmetrical to the naked eye, if you cant figure it out by the type of music you usually listen to, i dont think your going to have a huge problem.

If you look in the 'How to change a miniplug' thread (one of the 'sticky' threads), about midway through, Captain Odegard has a link to an .mp3 file that might do the trick for you.

(How'n heck do you link to a thread, anyway?)

Ok first wow. Second take the earbud and hold it so the back of it is facing you. Now look at the skullcandy logo. And right beneath the logo is the R and L your looking for. Not that hidden. It's right on the stopper before the wire disappears into the casing if you haven't found it yet


Can't believe I'm posting to this 3 years later

Really? Signing up just to necro a thread about garbage skullcandys? The best way to find the L and R is to liberally apply some of this:



Then you use one of these to light the fluid, and then the L and R will be clear to you.

Nice....wonder how much those cost, really lighter fluid should be applied each and every time this brand is mentioned.

Makes em look better.

Bwahahaha! Totally know what you mean. Total noobs asking dorky questions
when we're all sooooo much smarter! I mean, if you're not dropping $1,600.00 as a minimum on earbuds for your crappy FLAC's, there's just no point in even asking questions. World of Warcraft later?

Welcome to ABi.

Not quite sure what your first post is about but people who show up here generally get helped rather than laughed at. We were all noobs at one time.

Now, if someone digs up an old thread just to make inane comments about content that's relevant only to them, they may get laughed at.
