    Adequate

    Basic. Simple to use. Minimal controls/functionality/accessories. Wish they produced a little more volume. Volume is controlled by connected device only. Even with device at max volume setting; I'd like a little more. Subsequently purchased X3 Jaybirds from BB. They're just right, much more functionality and the volume suits my expectations. I purchased the Jaybirds on sale and also had a 10% discount coupon (total cost about $50 - about $80 off normal price).

    About what you’d expect

    For the price these earbuds perform as expected. Sound quality is OK with there being a lack of bass response. Battery life is disappointing. Only get 4-5 hours on a full charge which doesn’t even cover a longer airplane flight. Charge tine is annoyingly long. It takes what seems to be almost as much time to charge as the battery lasts. If you want something cheap and functional these will do. If you want any higher performance like sound quality and battery life spend more money and get something better.

    Good headset...with a flaw

    This is good headset. Both microphone and speakers are great. However, the headset has a built in program that turns the headset off after 30 minutes. So if you are on a 90 minutes conference call, be prepared to disconnect the Bluetooth connection to your phone, re-power the headset, and reconnect every 30 minutes. Can be very annoying. I did call the manufacturer, and they indicated there was no fix.

    I had a set that has a neck ring as base and earbuds attached, they worked about 1 year and then the right side quit, ( broken wire in the base to earbud), So I wanted a set with no base unit, wireless and earbuds. I use them for bowling and yard work too, So far no issues found, they work well, Vol must be controlled by media player (phone for me) I have answered calls on them, that feature works fine too. My only issue is battery life, about 3 - 4 hours is all I can get, but the unit is small, so it is a trade-off, to me.

    Good sound, flimsy cord

    I love skullcandy, let's start with that. I didn't want much out of the headphones but something I can talk on hands free and listen to my music without a cord attached to my phone at the gym bc I don't want to die using the machines and getting the cord tangled. These sounded Good enough for me to keep them but the cord was just too flimsy. When i handled it, I felt like the hulk. I really though I was going to break them eventually.

    Short battery life

    My favorite wired headphone died after years of use. I do not mind using wired headphone however it is also nice to have wire free. I only use this at work during the break, so I bought this one. It does a job, but battery dies very quick. I have wireless by Sony at home, and it keeps running for days, but this dies only a few hours of use. It is good enough for my purpose but I probably would not buy this a my main headphone.

    No volume control, poor battery life.

    Purchased from Best Buy for around $30. Was the least expensive wireless earbuds...you get what you pay for! After using infrequently, started using five days a week at the gym. After two months , the battery would not recharge. The manufacturer was nice enough to provide a replacement (seems I'm not the first with this issue). Replacement set lasted two months again after heavy usage. Do not purchase these.

    These wireless earbuds are good. They do have bass if you put them all the way inside your ear and use the correct size of ear tips. They are lightweight and look great. They connected to my phone right away and I haven't had any problems with the Bluetooth. Only thing is that sometimes they pause playing music then resume by themselves. Also, I got a static sound in the microphone earbud and had to restart them which fixed the problem. They are not the best, but for the price, they are not bad.

    This is my 3rd set of SkullCandy In-Ear Headphones and they sound GREAT... when they work! BestBuy has been fantastic about replacing the faulty headphones, but why am I only getting about 30-days of use out of them??? Especially when I only use them after work/school a few evenings each week. ~ Anyway, when they work I am very pleased with the sound quality for the price.

    The fact that I had to remember to charge the headphones everyday was a dealbreaker. The headphones alerts you to low battery only when its a few minutes from dying. I also had some connectivity issues which would make the music stop playing for a few seconds at a time. Overall, if you're the type that forgets to charge your electronics then you're better off purchasing the regular skullcandy smoking buds instead.

    For the price the Skullcandy JIB Wireless are a great choice, but they aren't that reliable. Paired with my smartphone, the headphones turn off every 30 minutes during calls without a fix. For everything else, they work pretty fine except for some random times in which they just turn off without warning. The audio quality is near identical to the Ink'd series, meaning they provide excellent sound output.

    At first the earbuds worked fine and I could at least go a couple of hours without recharging. Now I can't even go 15 minutes without them fading in and out. What I mean about them fading in and out....the music stops and then comes back on. I thought maybe I was too far away from my phone, but that is not the case. I tried again with my phone in my pocket. These do not hold a charge worth a flip!

    I found these earbuds to be very good. Good sound quality, good connectivity, good battery life. But they are not great… Great earbuds would be able to blow my eardrums out if I do desired, these do not. Also, I have found that the battery life does not last six continuous hours of music. (As stated) occasionally I turn them on, and they report "pairing". Translation: not gonna work. However, turning them off and turning them back on seems to solve the problem consistently.

    I'm trying to wean myself from my bulky LG headphones which I love but are dated style wise. I enjoy that the skull candy headphones are not easily detectable. The sound quality is also very good. My issue is that if the buds aren't in use I have to take them off and sit them on a light colored background otherwise it's a hunt to find them later. Leaving them around my neck like an unclasped necklace when not in use means they fall off.

    I ended up returning these for two reasons, neither of which is the fault of the product/company. 1.) They do not work with Microsoft Team Meetings in Windows 10, which was the main reason I was buying another BT headset. 2.) They do not have physical volume controls on the cable. In general, they seem to work OK and had a few size options for the in-ear piece, but they just wouldn't work for what I wanted them for.

    Quality Headphones for price

    Honestly, for $30, this is a great purchase. It's on the cheap side, but skull candy headphones are great for the cost. I use these at work and the noise cancellation is extremely helpful. The only thing that I wish it had was more of a battery life. It generally lasts 5-6 hours of continually music playing. I have an 8 hour desk job, so I wish it lasted longer. However, I charge it during my lunch break and I'm good to go for the rest of the day.!

    I bought these to replace my wired Apple headphones. These are awesome little light weight ear buds. If you're expecting thumping bass then these might not be what you're looking for. I'm happy with them for my kind of use. Pros: light weight, clear audio, 6 hr battery, fair price Cons: no bass, limited control functions (cannot raise volume), sometimes pop off ear when turning head.

    these are my first pair of wireless earphones. not that impressed. audio fades in and out at times. disconnects from my phone pretty often(but that could just be my phone..its not that great). they do provide decent sound. bass is good. fit snug in the ear. battery life is ok. i can get a solid 5 hrs straight of listening before having to recharge. if you're looking for something to workout in, go for it. these are not for regular use.

    I saw reviews for these in PC Magazine and were just about the only Bluetooth headphones under $100. I also had a rewards certificate so it made them even cheaper. They have the soft silicone buds that stay snug in your ear and also keep noise out when music is off. I didn’t want ones that had that plastic band to these are very lightweight and easy to wear. They have decent range if you aren’t wearing your paired device

    Connectivity range sucks!!

    The intended way to use bluetooth headphones is to keep the wire and charging pod behind your neck - I can't do that because then my music wont play!! Glitches out and cant hear anything When I keep the wire in the front to test, my phone has to be literally right beside it. When I extend my hand down with phone in hand, it disconnects. Terrible! I needed this for on the go, runs etc. and cant even use it. $40 down the drain!
