Good budget headphones but not great
Posted by: Graystone55 from: Mesa, AZ on
I found them comfortable to wear for a couple of hours at a time on bus rides to/from work. They are a leather-like covering. They go on your ears but not over them. If you wear glasses, you'll need to place them a bit below the top of the ear to avoid your ears being sandwiched between your glasses earpiece and the heaphone cups. They do trap sweat in your ears. If it's warm or you are exercising, you'll feel even warmer wearing these.
With audio sources that I could heavily adjust the source volume they were fine. But adjust that input volume too much and you get clipping. The volume on these is not great but tolerable. By having a music playing app on my phone that allowed me to adjust a preamplier setting I am generally able to use these. But if you've got an app/device that gives you only moderate amounts of volume levels out, you may find low level recordings hard to get loud enough. The headphones themselves only have about ten clicks of volume control.
The controls are somewhat easy to use with exception to the on/off function. The plus and minus buttons double as volume controls (one short press at a time# and track changers #press and hold) if your device supports it. It's pretty easy to get used to this. The O button does work nicely as a pause button. However it is also used to link the device with blutooth device and to turn off/on. The linking will often require you to turn off the blutooth on your device and turn it back on to force a repairing. If you've got more than just this as a blutooth device, you may have to go into the phone or device settings to pick these headphones for linking. The on/off can get pretty confusing. Many times I've thought I had them off and they were still on and thought they were on fiddling with the phone to make it work only to discover they were still off. You have to carefully watch the hard to see little LED flash colors as you hold down the button.
Its range for me was about 20 feet. Frankly that's about normal for any blutooth device. The further away you get from it the more likely you will lose pairing. However I use this with my cellphone on the go so am never more than about 5 feet away so works excellent without any dropouts at that range.
I have the black ones and they look good without drawing much attention to the big headband and ear muffs in public. Also they are visible enough to let someone approaching you know that you probably won't hear them. #Very handy for annoying people trying to hand out literature or preach to you at bus and train stations). When I wore earbuds people were always trying to converse before I knew they were talking to me. So great "I don't want to talk to people now" message without having to say it.
If you are looking for low priced wireless headphones that do the job with moderate audio quality, I recommend these. But if you are looking for great audio quality you need to be spending a good deal more and choose other headsets.

I got these to have a wireless connection to my iPod. They also connected easily to my Samsung tablet. Sound quality is good, they do not cause feedback with my hearing aids, are comfortable to wear and stay on while walking up and down hills. I do need to reconnect them when switching devices, but that is a minor concern.

Do these headphones kick harder than a mule on hot concrete? Yes. Yes ,they do. I was skeptical when I placed the order, as I refused to believe that headphones this inexpensive could be this good. There is a SHOCKING amount of power coming out of these. Granted, they are no "Beats" or "Bose," but if you are looking for quality wireless sound on a shoestring budget, get these bad boys.
Also, they snug enough to jog with.

The headphones work great. They hold a charge for several hours. These are priced at the low end of the market for bluetooth headphones, but I am pleasantly surprised by the good sound and distance away from laptop or phone I can go before they start to get static. They do feel a little cheap with the plastic casing, but they are sturdy. I toss mine on the table when complete and have not had any issues. They also have nice cushions where the top of the headphones touch your head, which is nice. Overall good headset. I would buy again if needed.

These work very well even at loud volume they do not get distorted or crackle, they are well padded and comfortable on your ears,I like them much better than ear buds that constantly fall out. Also they are inexpensive and produce a great sound,very pleased with them.

Good headphone set.
Posted by: BMWW from: on
These Bluetooth headphones are good, except sometimes they lose connectivity, especially when I am using them at the gym. So if you're thinking of buying these headphones for the gym or any other activity involving a lot of movement, I would get another set instead.

Awesome headphones, awesome price!
Posted by: EddieB76 from: on
These headphones sound great. I wanted wireless headphones I could use during my workouts and these are perfect. They fit snug and don't fall off, the sound quality is great, and the battery life is excellent. I work out for an hour, 5 days a week and have used them while web surfing etc. I've been using these for 4 weeks on the first charge! Skull Candy has never disappointed me. They make a quality product at very affordable prices. These are no exception, I highly recommend them if you're looking for great sound, durability, and long battery life at an unbeatable price!

Great audio quality at a low price!!!
Posted by: TioPete from: on
These are basic Bluetooth headphones that are very easy to set up and use.
The audio quality is SUPERB!!
Music that I've listened to for years never sounded better-sharp clear highs and smooth deep bass.
It's almost as if I'm listening to new HD recordings! Play back of all music is as least as good as CD or flac even if its "only" a 320kps MP3 audio file
I don't ever recall being this pleased with any audio product before.
Only one minor shortcoming for those of us with larger heads: there should have been a bit more expansion. Even fully opened, I find them a bit snug a a bit uncomfortable after listening for more than an hour.
However, the crisp clear high quality audio makes them a great device for ANY type of music enjoyment. AND- at a very reasonable price.
The booklet says "battery life about ten hours".
I have listened to music for more than 12 hours over the course of three days before a recharge was needed and they recharge in less than two hours using any USB port on your computer.
High would highly recommend them to any audiophile.
