    Stopped Charging

    I owned these headphones for just under 3 weeks before they stopped charging, rendering them unusable. The Best Buy return policy is 14 days, so I wasn’t able to return them. Instead, I had to make a warranty claim to Skullcandy, pay $15 to ship these to Skullcandy once my claim was approved, and I’m still waiting for them to send me a new pair. The whole thing is ridiculous and I’m not happy about it. Prior to the malfunction with these not charging, I was very happy with the sound quality and the fit/feel of the headphones. The Bluetooth paired easily with my iPhone and these were great for running on the treadmill. I would NOT recommend these though because of the charging not working. I still don’t understand why it happened.

    This is my 3rd pair in less than 3 years. The sound is good whether I'm out for a walk or out cutting the grass and the price is not terrible compared to others I looked at. So far I have had no luck though, they just stop charging. I even tried multiple chargers and different cords and still just gave up and bought new ones. I continue to buy new ones because when they are working I love them. When I ask for suggestions at the stores to replace them they tell me how strange it is for them to have issues like this so I try again, maybe I just have bad luck. I bought the protection plan this time so I'm hopeful they will last a while.

    Great purchase within budget

    You should buy this product if, 1. You are in budget 2. Not too much worried about sound quality. If you hadn't used high end headsets like Bose, then you will not feel any difference 3. Want to connect to multiple devices 4. Don't bother about the clumsy plastic around your neck This product is best for a normal business user, who just wants to listen to some music at work or hands free calls. Some cons, 1. The reception drops even for a small obstacle between phone and headset 2. Picks up so much noise during calls 3. Connection to paired devices are instant. Have to go into setting and connect it manually frequently. Again, great purchase for casual use and within budget.

    I have a small business so I get a lot of phone calls. After about three months the power on-off /answer button has stopped working. This is my second pair which have the same issue. If you barely get any phone calls then this headset is phenomenal. I think that because alot of traffic that I get through this headphones it just can't keep up to the constant clicking of the same button over and over and over. The other buttons when you press them you can hear the click click click to it but the power button no longer does that so it just doesn't turn on anymore. Best Buy has been great and has replaced them on the warranty but if it goes bad again I will not be getting another one of this Brand

    Amazing Wireless headphones

    This ones are my everyday headphones, I love them. I pay full price- 59.99 for them. I think they are worth every penny. They are light, great fit, the sound is very clean, great bass, I can use them at the gym and not be worrying about they falling out of my ears, I also wear them at work, they don't look too invasive. So far great connection with my phone, the only issue so far is when I am making phone calls it looks like they do pick a lot of extra background noise. The battery does finish fast for my needs, I am a 24hr user of this bad boys, they charge really fast probably in 40mins or less, I would buy them again, returned 2 different brands before settling with this ones. Pros: SOUND, fit, size, style. Con: Battery aprox:6hrs, call background noise.

    So naturally I lost the iPhone 7 jack. I've been hesitant to purchase Bluetooth headphones because it's a commitment. It's literally like buying your first pair of designer sunglasses. Are you gonna lose them, what if they break... will you take care of them... will someone steal them? But spending the $40 some odd dollars I guess isn't the same as dropping $150+ as one does on sunglasses. But the feeling is much the same. This is a good first time buy. Meh... could it be louder... yeah. But really that's just me. Does it need to be louder? Not really. I'd still like to hear by the time I'm 50. Pros... good quality, safe on your wallet. This kind is sweat proof. Cons... if you like blasting your music to an insane degree... not for you. Also.. there's no case for it. Big con. Happy Shopping.

    Great headphones

    I bought these to replace an older pair of BT headphones. I didn't go wrong! These have great sound, the bass is a little too much (as other reviewers had said), but I was able to adjust that in the sound settings on my phone. The fit in my ears is great, they don't slip out (I wear them for working out side and I sweat alot) . The controls are easy to use, but the buttons could stick up a little more. The only negative, is that that it doesn't tell you how much battery life you have remaining. I'm used to the audio prompts on my other headphones. I emailed their tech support as there was nothing in the instructions or on the web site. They said I have to look at the indicator light, if it flashes red it needs recharged and if it is solid red, it's almost dead!

    I love these Wireless Headphones plain and simple. It has such good clarity to the sound when talking and music, its also got such good bass i mean its a SkullCandy soo why wouldn't it! I Skateboard do Martial Arts and sooo many other activities outdoors soo i sweat alot and even get caught in the rain often and these have always came in clutch for me. Charges pretty fast build quality it really good and really durable especially from my arms or hands accidentally pulling it out of my ear without it breaking and the battery life is very good too even when ur listening to music alll day. Works with any OS and even works with Google And Bixby commands. I would highly recommend these.

    I purchased this product after reading many reviews and thought it would be a good fit with all features and value for money. But i was wrong. It had major functionality defect. Its play button dont work after pause. I had a exchange with brand new piece but that also had the same problem. I thought i am the one who is having problem while operating so i showed to best buy technician and he also couldn't play it after pausing the video. Because of this bad bluetooth , i couldn't buy any other handset during thanks giving. Also it wasn't pairing up with my phone. The same was re-created with best buy associate. I am not sure how is it working for other people or whole set of bad products are coming during the holiday season.

    I am very easy on my gear no matter what it is. I handled this wireless in ear headphones with care and only used to listen to YT videos and occasionally would use for exercising. Nothing too over the top. These things last no more than 6 months with the left ear going out entirely then I was left with the right earbud and then after about a month it went out too. Just nothing! No sound and it went straight into the trash. Even my two teenagers warned these would not be good. Well, they foresaw this coming and I will not buy another of these - ever.

    Great Wireless Sport Earbuds

    These earbuds are great. So far they have been superior to my Jaybird X3 in every way except the X3's have a cool app where you can customize your sound. These Skullcandy's have great battery life I couldn't believe how long it took before I had to charge them, they didn't even die I just felt like it had to be getting close to dead. The earbuds themselves fit in my ear great and do not fall out even during heavy exercise. I have run miles in them, done sprints, lifted, shadowboxed, heavy bag work, shot a basketball around, and they stayed in for all of it. They are one of the cheapest wireless headphones on the market yet well outperformed my Jaybird X3's and I wish I had bought them right off the bat.

    Comfortable fit, good sound quality

    I am thrilled with these wireless ear buds. I find them to be comfortable with prolonged use, especially lying down snuggled up on a pillow watching Netflix! I had reservations about the neck cuff however I find it to be flexible and comfortable. My only comparison for sound quality is less expensive wired ear buds. Compared to those the sound is excellent. I find that when fully charged they work for at least 9 hours before needing to be re-charged. The only negative I experienced is travelling away from my lap top. It could be my wireless connection but if I go more than 10 to 15 feet I lose the sound. I can't comment on the ease of use for the controls because I don't use them. Overall I am pleased with the performance of this product.

    Was looking for a pair of wireless headphones more on the budget friendly side for when I'm running/working out and these have been perfect. They are sweat resistant and seem very well designed. The ear buds are comfortable and stay in place unlike other headphones I have used. The band is lightweight enough that I forget it is on my neck. The controls cover everything I need, and the sound quality is good enough for me especially for the price I paid (on sale). Volume is separate from device volume so when both are maxed out it has been more than loud enough to listen with any background noise around me so no issue there either. Battery life has proven to line up with the up to 9 hour rating so far. Very happy with this purchase.

    These are used mainly while working out, but also some at work. While working out, they are comfortable and the earbuds DO NOT SLIP OUT OF YOUR EARS! That seems to always be the issue with earbuds for me...plus the fact that the cords are always flopping around. It's so nice not having to worry about a cord attached to a phone. At work, I listen to music while doing projects. They are great because I can listen while others cannot. Plus, again, I don't have to worry about a cord and walking around with my phone! Honestly, I was worried about getting this brand since I've always heard rave reviews about beats....but I'll tell you that these are just as good. Doesn't hurt they are more affordable, too!

    I was looking for some lightweight Bluetooth ear buds with retractable wires. I bought the Insigna brand first but they sounded awful so I returned them for this set. Even though the wires aren’t retractable, there is a slot to tuck them out of the way when not in use. They have a very good sound for what I use them for which is games on my iPad and occasional music. The only downside for me is that the part that wraps around your neck is very snug and it took me a while to get used to them. Overall though I am satisfied with them. I read that they have a microphone but I have not tried to figure out how it works, as I don’t need that feature.

    Limited connectivity range

    I would give a 5 star rating for the Form and Fit of the headset. It is comfortable to wear and holds up well during workouts and daily tasks. However, Funtionality is lacking and drags down my overall rating. With my iPhone 6 I have to keep the phone close to the headset in order to maintain reasonable connectivity. When carrying my phone in a back pocket I consistently have brief loss of the signal interrupting what I am listening to. Carrying the phone in a front pocket is somewhat better but can still experience consistent signal loss. Best solution has been to carry it in a shirt pocket or use an armband for workouts. On the plus side battery life has been good.

    This was bought as a gift for a person who frequents the gym but hates corded earbuds for weight training. They are very happy with it's performance; sound, stays put, comfortable buds, battery life, nice controls, etc. They did stop working within 3 weeks of using. We returned the broken ones and got a new pair easily. Didn't have to use the extended BB warranty I had purchased. Hopefully this pair fairs better and the previous one was just a fluke. I still give it 5 stars despite this problem. All headphones brands have issues imo. Word of advice, always purchase the additional warranty for ear buds. I've personally gone through 3-4 sets in a year. Skullcandy have always lastest the longest for me.

    I bought these earbuds primarily to workout. I was worried they would not stay in my ear through working out and lifting, but they stay in securely without any issues. I think the reason I am not crazy about these is that the neck band slides around my neck while working out rather than stay in place and the treble is much more pronounced than the base which hurts my ears if I turn it up too loud. I like that the earbuds keep out sound and my workout partner was not able to hear my music. The controls on the neck band are easily accessible, but sometimes hard to differentiate and I push the wrong one. I like that it works with phone and can control volume, mute, and skip to next song with ease.

    Not A Best Buy

    I purchased this wireless in-ear headphones while on sale. I used them for about a week before returning them. I initially had high expectations but was quickly disappointed due to connectivity issues and extremely limited range. Any time I got more than 8 feet away from the connected broadcasting device I would lose connectivity and often than not had issues re-connecting once back in range. The up to 33 feet was greatly exaggerated. The sound quality is decent but that is a mute point if you can't move freely about and have to worry about being disconnected. I'd suggest spending a bit more money to get a reliable connection.

    I bought these earbuds after reading rave reviews and wanting to forgo paying the $160 for AirPods. These ear buds are comfortable and the sound is great when you’re playing music. However, if I use it to talk on the phone whoever I’m on the phone with can’t hear me. They complain it’s muffled. Doesn’t matter if I’m moving or sitting still. I’m muffled regardless. I wouldn’t recommend these ear buds for your phone as they don’t seem to work. The battery life on them is excellent. I definitely get the full 8 hours and it is sweat resistant. Disappointed I can’t use them for phone calls but otherwise they’re good.
