  1. So the 2009 version FMJ’s had the silver tube shaped clicker where as to 2010-2011 ones had the squarish metal housing with mic and white button with a tiny skullcandy logo on it. That means I have the 2010-2011 versions then because they stopped making fmjs around right after so I guess I have the version 2 FMJs which is cool with the braded aluminum cable and metal headphone jack and mine have white rubber edges also still very good headphones I love them.
