    Great in some aspects

    For the price(if you can get them sub $40 even better) these are great in my opinion. I'm hard on headphones I have them in all day at work listening to podcasts as well as use them when lifting. I'd call myself a heavy user. I purchased my first set in January of this year and the left earbud just lost sound. After trying two other brands(yurbuds, JBL) I've decided to buy another pair and send the first set into skullcandy on warranty. Battery life: Best I've found for *cheap* Bluetooth earbuds. I get about a solid 8 hours before the battery life indicator starts going off. Sound: Impressive for the price and I'm extremely picky about this. Perfect for listening to podcasts and music without being too bass heavy. Neckband: Not an issue for me. Does get stretched out pretty quickly. Range: Just decent. When I get sweaty at the gym is where I have the most issues. If the band touches your skin the sound starts to skip and muffle. Comfort: These have to be the most comfortable band type earbuds I've used. If they lasted longer I'd give them another star but they are Skullcandy. I've never had a pair last more than a year.

    Good for the price

    Switched to these after a high end pair that I wore religiously stopped working. I had no huge expectations, given the price. The sound quality is much better than anticipated, and they're quite durable. I don't have a lot of bad, but there is some. Sync is fairly odd compared to others I've used, and I ended up sitting in the parking lot for awhile with the instructions, finally pulling up directions from a Google search... the provided instructions are pretty terrible. I like the sleek design in regards to potentially concealing them, but what's the point when they come in ridiculously bright colors? Finally, they have volume up and down control... period. My muscle memory must be shot too, because I can't ever seem to hit the right volume button, but instead pause what I'm listening too. You can't really go by feel... or barely anyway. There's no skipping capability built in. The re-sync process is required every time, and has to be paired by your device every time, rather than just auto matching when turning both on (S8). Good enough all in all.

    This is my first pair of wireless headphones. I was cautious at buying something way too expensive, but at the same time I didn't want to go cheap. I ultimately bought these due to the 9 hour battery life and I am glad I did. I haven't timed it, but battery life is great. I only use them while sitting around on the laptop (no exercising, etc.) It would have been nice if larger buds would have been provided. I can only imagine if I were up and moving. One negative is the range of the connection is limited. They instantly lose connection when something is in between them and my laptop/tablet especially walls. Would be nice to get up to get a snack and not lose my music! I have a cheap bluetooth speaker that will work throughout the entire house! They are fairly easy to connect and I have found that it is easy to switch the connection between my laptop and computer. Overall they are OK, but could be improved.

    Not So Sweet Candy

    I needed a new set of headphones for my daily commute into New York City, and decided to go wireless. After talking to a Blue Shirt in the store, I settled on this pair of Skull Candy Method Wireless in-ear headphones - which he recommended as his second choice. While I find them serviceable, I'm not that happy with them. The way the ear pieces are designed, they stick out of my ears farther than the wired headphones that came with my iPhone. When I'm waking when it's windy, I can actually hear the wind whistle though the headset - very annoying. They also seem sensitive to movement, so if I'm walking fast or moving quickly to catch a train, they seem to amplify my footsteps in my ears. Also, when you turn them off and on, the audio announcing "power on" and "power off" is VERY loud. Again - annoying. Overall, I'm not impressed, but since I didn't keep the package, I'm not motivated enough to return them to the store. Next time I'll do some research up front and hope to find a better pair. You should do the same.

    I bought the candyskull method wireless ear buds after purchasing the candyskull smoking buds 2 wireless ear buds for my boyfriend. I liked the fact that they had the neck strap and thought I'd get some for myself after trying his. I already had a set of JBL wireless earbuds that I had trouble with while working due to them sliding around and sometimes off my neck when I would use only one earbud. So I thought if I bought the ones like his they would stay in place better. Althought I purchased the Method style because they are a little slimmer than the smokin buds and liked the more feminine color. They work great and have good sound quality. They only dislike I have it the the neck strap is less flexible than the Smokin buds and fit a little tighter than I wanted them to. They do stay in place if you're active and doing a lot of bending down and moving at a fast pace. Overall I'm satisfied with these but I will consider getting the smoking buds next time to have a flexibly and less stiffness from the neck band.

    Adequate headphones for the price

    I had been looking for wireless bluetooth headphones for a while, to use specifically for working out or walking outdoors. I have small ears and have always had trouble with earbuds staying in my ears, but was not willing to sacrifice small size for the bulk of over the ear headphones. I also did not want the wrap around the ear features some have because I wear glasses. Considering the amount of time I would be using them, it was not worth paying $150 for jaybirds, bose, beats, etc. These are adequate at best for my purposes. The sound is just OK. Bluetooth connection with my phone or tablet is clear and does not drop out, but spotty when used with my computer or at the gym with AudioFetch app. The earbuds do fall out occasionally, and I worry about durability. But for a third of the price as top name competitors, these will suffice.

    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.

    Got these on Black Friday for a family member. They really like them. I'm told they are comfortable and produce a good sound. From the perspective of someone looking at someone wearing these, this product is a little ugly when wearing. The cables coming out of the band look really short although I'm told they don't pull on your ears. These are really light and feel cheap. There is no substance to the feel and if I didn't know the non sale price I would think they came from a bargain store. If you can catch these on sale I would recommend buying but at full price I would go with another brand.

    Solid Sound But...

    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.

    This was my first pair of wireless headphones. They were great! Fit well and comfortable. Sounded great and I never had an issue with Bluetooth connectivity. I could leave my phone on my nightstand and move around my entire apartment with no issues. Unfortunately, a few days ago they suddenly would no longer turn on unless they were connected to the charger. This was after they had been fully charged. I've only had them maybe 8 months. It's a bummer because I really liked them. Good news is I purchased them on sale. Bad news is that they are not currently on sale and I don't know if I want to risk it but as I said, they were outstanding before they quit on me.

    This product worked great for about two weeks. Paired easily with my iPhone 5, calls were clear and connected easily. I listen to podcasts and I make phone calls. I rarely listen to music so I can't speak to base etc. but sound is clear and people said they could hear me fine. After about two weeks I noticed that there are times during a long call that I can hear the person I am talking to but they can't hear me. As soon as I turn off the headphones and spoke through the phone, the person could hear me again. Also, I frequently hear a screeching noise for a moment (probably one second- which is rather long when there is screeching noise in your ear)

    I purchased these as an entry level bluetooth headset. I had a pair of Monster earbuds for the last 3 years that sounded amazing, but I wanted freedom of movement. These don't sound anywhere near as good as my Monster earbuds, but they still sound ok. If you are wanting deep bass these are not for you. I had trouble pairing them also. If you hook them up to power they will pair right away. They paired with my iPad no problem, but my iPhone the next day was a different story. Haven't taken a call on them yet and the range is pretty good. I can make it all the way across the office and downstairs.

    Light Weight, Sleek Fit, Manufacturer Defect

    Purchased theses for work and to use when hitting the gym, felt comfortable and the wireless is useful. Light on the neck and stays in place very well. Huge manufacturing defect. They stopped turning on then turned on with only one functioning earbud. Overall very useful and a good buy. Loud with good base and the sound cancelling is near perfect. Once you get past the pain of the exchange process, and hopefully get a quality pair, they’re a decent purchase.

    Headphones are ok, but earbuds just hang loose

    I can't believe they couldn't figure out how to secure the ear buds when the headphones are on your neck and not in use. There is a way to secure them behind your neck, but it's a pain to tuck in and take out. I wanted to return this, but was unable as Bestbuy required me to return a charger which didn't come with these headphones. I would skip this unless you enjoy walking around with ear buds flopping everywhere.

    Was looking to replace an LG tone on a budget. This was an okay buy. The sound is decent. Would be nice to have some better instructions and support. Found that it does have a hands free voice activation by double pressing the skull button (middle button). Battery life is ok. I get through a day usually while listening most of my 8 hour shift. While it still works, there is an piece on the bottom side that has started separating after having it a month. Not too happy about that, but hey it's a budget headset right? If you can afford the extra, get an LG tone.

    This earpiece works as described. Battery life is sufficient for all day wear @ about 50% use. I charge over night. My only complaint is that I wear it at night when I put my son to bed and it has an exceptionally bright light that blinks when it is connected and in use. I have had other wireless headsets that have a similar indicator light but the lights werent nearly this bright! I can actually use it to light the room when my son has to get up to use the restroom.

    The sound quality with it's rich bass sounds amazing! But, after a month and a half of using them hard at the gym, they died. I went to Best Buy to get help, but since I didn't get the protection, they told me I'd have to go through Skullcandy. Skyllcandy's website is easy to navigate and I had no problems submitting a claim. The downside is waiting for Skullcandy to send them back through the mail. I'm happy that Skullcandy offers a 2 year warranty. All and all I would recommend Skullcandy's Method Wireless In-Ear Headphones, just get the Best Buy protection!

    Purchased these for my daughter as she had listed some wireless headphones for Christmas. It’s only 1-12-19 and they have already started with a crackling noise while listening at low to moderate volume. She’s not a “turn them up as loud as possible” kinda kid. Kinda disappointed and so glad that I at least bought these during the Black Friday sale! Never would I have been satisfied even slightly at the regular listed price for what she ended up with.

    I bought these so I can use them when I run and at the gym. They worked for a few months until they decided not to charge anymore. I called and did a warranty exchange and the same thing happened to The Replacements. They never tell you to use a regular block charger all the while I was using a fast charger which shorted it out. Then called and got new replacement, and those short it out as well because I wasn't using a computer to charge. I gave up!
