Short Review: Some of the BEST headphones on the market when it comes to volume and sound quality!! They ARE THE BEST on the market when it comes to bass and Bluetooth connection quality!! They are also the best I have owned when it comes to battery life as well!! Everything about these headphones is EXCELLENT!!
1.) Bass (Powered Sub)- The best part of these headphones is the bass.. Actually, if you turn the bass all the way up, you almost can’t hear anything else SO WAY TO MUCH BASS!!! Some reviews mention that as a “bad” thing BUT I think it is a great thing!! Some people like the overpowering bass so they might not believe it is to much!
2.) Bass Slider – The slider allows you to choose exactly how much bass you want.. All the way down and these sound like your standard high quality headphones.. All the way up and you have A LOT of bass.. Right below middle is perfect for me
3.) Very Comfortable – I can wear these all day without any issues.. Comfort is no problem!! The soft ear cups feel GREAT around my ears and the padded headband is great
4.) Controls – The controls, while basic and simple, are very easy to use.. The buttons are LARGE which makes it very easy to figure out what button your pressing.. This is a good thing so that you never have to worry about pressing the wrong button.. You can feel their shape with your fingers
5.) Price – MSRP can be a little high for these BUT Skullcandy runs them on sale all the time on their site.. I got my pair for under $125.. At that price, you wont find anything that sounds better than these!
6.) Battery Life – OK so this can fluctuate a lot! Remember, these are Bluetooth PLUS they have a powered sub in them.. If you have the volume all the way up and bass as high as it goes, you probably wont get more than 10 hours.. I have fully tested these WITHOUT bass at all and I get close to 36 – 40 hours (40 hours are advertised). My standard setup (Bass right below middle, volume 75%) sees over 20 hours of battery life..
7.) Premium Carry Bag – With fake fur and pockets to hold cords!! The bag is awesome
8.) Callers can hear me loud and clear and have no idea I am talking using my headphones
9.) Easy to charge and charge quickly
10.) Wonderful SOUND QUALITY – Even if you don’t like bass, the sound quality is outstanding so if you can find these on sale, I really doubt you will find a better pair of headphones for under $150!! At $200, you MIGHT find something that sounds as good or slightly better but if you want bass, grab these.. Mids and Highs are very clear!! Little distortion (Unless bass is all the way up but hey bass is distortion! HAHA)
11.) They hold a very strong connection!! And if your device doesn’t have Bluetooth they can be plugged up!!
12.) Work even with dead battery plugged up (Sound only, no bass)
13.) THICK Metal Headband screams quality
14.) Very LITTLE SOUND leakage – Even at 100% very little sound leaks.. This is a good thing
15.) Sexy Design – These are the best looking headphones I own!! They are sleek!! The leather top is sexy!! The black looks wonderful, and it offers VERY THICK wire and metal headband.. Again, these look like a beast!
16.) Foldable Design – Makes them easy to stash in your bag!
1.) Price – If you LOVE BASS the price is good! You wont find a better pair of headphones with the bass at this price! But if you don’t find these on sale and you are buying just for music without bass you can probably find headphones that sound just as good for less. However, watch skullcandy as these have been on sale 4 times in the past month!! Amazon matches most of those sales I have noticed
Overall: I am in love with these headphones!! Skullcandy has been putting out some GREAT Bluetooth audio devices recently and I have purchased several.. I have YET to be disappointed!! I do own other brands (Bose, Beats, and others) but my skullcandys beats them hands down in sound and connection!
