    This is my first set of wireless headphones. I was looking at LG as well as J birds. I'm a review freak, and I scanned reviews for DAYS. I went into best buy to get the Dr. Dre Beats, but I did not care for the over the ear piece. I read some reviews that it hurt after a while, and I was afraid it would bother me, not to mention the fact it's easier to just put take an earbud in and out. Pros: 1. Inexpensive! Some of these things cost over $150. Can someone explain this to me before my time to return runs out? 2. I like the band around the neck. It doesn't bother me at all. This allows me to have just one ear bud in, and let the other one dangle while I'm at work. I do NOT find the band too tight, and I have a normal size neck for a female(at least I think so). 3. Good sound. I've answered calls and there was no feedback, and the person on the other end said I sounded very clear. 4. You are able to pause or restart a song. I still need to read the directions thoroughly, but I like this feature. 5. Charge life. So far I just charge them everyday, and have been able to use them for the entire day at work. 6. It is so nice to not have to plug into my iPhone. No more dropping my phone or getting all twisted up so that my earbuds rip out. Cons: 1. I wish the range was further, but I think for the price, it's worth the compromise. It's only an issue at work or if I'm cleaning the house. If I'm working out, my phone is within the range or in a pocket. I'm not sure how long these will last, but I'm happy so far. My friend who has the more expensive Jaybirds says she has to replace them once a year, and has the Best Buy warranty with them, so they just give her another pair.

    great sound, ok battery life, strange connections

    So I bought these with best buy $10 best buy rewards, amazon price matching, and it was $59 down to $45 down to $42.99 with another $10 off, $32.99 + tax. Not bad at all. The quality of the bluetooth connection on my ZTE is amazing with them, samsung S5, not very good at all depending on the direction and angle of the phone. Different bluetooth, legacy vs more modern (2018-9)? The sound is very good on my bicycle, I can hear the wind if I would like, some street sounds, but cars, nope, lower sounds cut out, be safe when you ride. Loudness is good, base is good and as written, noise cancellation in lower ranges is very good. Comfort is a given with the design, earplugs feel great, the controls are wonky but they work and then feel pretty good. The battery life is so so. Maybe 6~ hours or more at a high level of volume, not really 8-9 hours. I have the big 15~ hour skullcandy headphones, 2 pairs and they last forever. Charge time is pretty good on these as listed, the new ones. The wire protector design is pretty nice, but I haven't bothered using it yet and taking an ear out to hear both the environment and the music makes it sound not too great but is very safe when you need a quick review of your surroundings and your hands are a bit busy. Very very lightweight! :) Overall 5/5 but a few points off for things listed, so 4.5/5

    Great Bluetooth in ear for the gym

    Picked this up a little over a month ago and have been using it everyday since. Was heading to the gym when my over ear bluetooth headphones band cracked and Best buy happened to be next door to my gym. After going back and forth between those in the same price range I ended up with these skullcandy in ear bluetooth earphones. Pros Solid music playback Battery life ( I get about 7.5 hours per day with regular random usage plus few hours at the gym) Lightweight (it's like a necklace so I tend to forget I'm wearing it) Cons Bluetooth does lose signal randomly from time to time. Phone is only in my pocket and I have a LG v30 so I'm confident it's not my phone. Microphone per those I've spoke with said I sound distant and sometimes it sounds muffled. Other times its clear. So not sure what's going on. Overall I'd recommend for gym usage and casual wear around for commuting or something along those lines. If you need to make lots of calls I wouldn't recommend as that feature seems inconsistent. Bass is also so so. Hope this helps. Good luck!

    So ill start out by saying i love this product, im a weight lifter and i do it for more then fun. I do competitions and more. I love this product because they stay hooked around your neck no matter what movement im doing unlike other product which fall off when jumping or laying down. battery life is amazing as well i only have to charge these once a week and i use them two hours a day. the downfall of this product is i don't think they are as waterproof as they say. ive gone through three sets of these normally last around 6 months. this time i did buy a warranty and ill see how it goes. but overall this product has fit me best for my needs after trying many brands and products i would highly recommend these for the price.

    This is my second purchase of this product, the first lasted about a year. It still worked if you didn't mind listening from only one side. I used them quite often so I wasn't too upset about it. I purchased another pair simply because they were on sale. They sound pretty good for the price, and although it hangs around your neck you don't feel it. Sometimes when I'm working around metal it cuts in and out, but it's not often that it happens. They go plenty loud and sound good for this price point. I really haven't listened to many other wireless headphones for comparison. I was interested in true wireless, but I'm waiting for a price drop before I pull the trigger.

    The Skull Candy Method Wireless earbuds are a great alternative to the LG, Beats by Dre, and Bose Bluetooth headsets. I would call these buds mid-range through and through. They have decent bass, noise cancellation and decent broadcast range. Battery life is also comparable to the higher quality and more expensive buds. I usually top out at around 8-10 hours with stand by and 6-8 when constantly playing music. Charging is fast, and they can pair with multiple devices at once. They come with two sets of bud tips to fit different size ears for comfort, I had no problems with the standard sizes that came pre-attached. My only gripe is when you don't actually have the earbuds in your ear there isn't a quick option to neatly store them in the band. LG has magnetic tips that keep them attached to the band when they're not in use, but this is a small issue. All in all, They are a good inexpensive alternative to some of the other more costly brands.

    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.

    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 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.

    These headphones are not as bad as I thought. But I bought this for the sole purpose of using them in the gym as a wireless sport headphones. The problem is when Im in the gym I want headphones that will immerse me into the music. These headphones sadly don't get loud enough for me. It's weird when I play music through pandora they are great but through spotify they just don't get loud enough and since I'm a premium member these just don't work out for me. I honestly don't think it's skull candy's problem more of a spotify issue. I do use these oddly enough to listen to my meditations when i go to sleep. Oddly enough these are comfy for me to sleep in.

    Great headphones, one problem

    I loved everything about these headphones, but there was one problem that I consider a deal breaker. It left a bruise on my clavicle. Everything else about them worked wonderfully. The earbuds were a perfect fit, sound was great, easy to use. I honestly didn't even feel any discomfort while I was wearing them. It wasn't until several hours later I noticed it. That said, I used them while running almost 5 miles and my clavicle bone right where it rests is fairly bony. I think they'd be great for other forms of exercise that isn't so bouncy, or possibly for individuals with more padding there. Unfortunately I will be returning them.

    Decent Headphones for the Price

    Pros: Sound quality is decent. Comfortable fit and can wear them for hours without ears hurting. The headphones do not move around much when bending, leaning, climbing. Battery life is as expected (about 8 hours or so). Comes with two (2) different cushions for your ear. Charge time is fairly quick. Range is pretty average for the class of Bluetooth (about 33 feet). Cons: The Bluetooth transmitter/receiver is located with the volume buttons on the left side. I have found that if I lean my head to the left and cover the volume buttons, that the signal comes in and out. Really the only issue that I have with them. Overall a good product. Very happy with the results.

    This is my first wireless headset, so I don't really have anything to compare it to. But, it works well, and exactly what I was looking for. The band keeps it securely around my neck, and the earbuds in easy reach when they are not in my ears. I work landscaping, and the buttons are easy to manipulate even with gloves on. The battery life has been excellent so far, and lasts me beyond the 8hr work day. They charge up pretty quickly in ~2hrs or less, depending on how long I used them. Unless they fail disastrously on me, I will def consider buying another pair in the future, and have told my son I'd get him some when he gets tired of dealing with his dangling earbuds.

    These are the best skullcandy earbuds I have tried. The battery life is very good for wireless sport headphones! I get about 8 hours since I listen to my music at 70%-90% volume. With music turned up, these are sound insolating, most of the time I can't hear my background with music playing, which is great! The sweat resistance is very useful and it works wonderfully. Wireless Bluetooth is convenient, but you can only connect to one device at a time. The wireless range does not actually impress as I can only travel a short distance away without interference. They're pretty comfortable around the neck and I barely notice they're there after a long time.

    I bought these to replace an older wireless headphone. The sound is great, controls are easy to use. Battery life is around 10 hours on one charge. The only complaints I have are that the documentation is a little lacking and there is no way to see how much battery you have left until you get a sound prompt at about 30 minutes remaining. My other headphones would give you a verbal message when you turned it on if the battery was low medium or high. Otherwise, they are great. Oh, they also come with 2 sizes of ear buds.. I wear them outside doing yard work and they stay in my ear well (I do tend to sweat alot). Good value for the price I paid.

    I really like the look and ease of function of these headsets. I tend to wear them around my neck all day, and don't notice them. It was very easy to set up, and I continue to use them daily and have not had a problem. Battery life seems to be as good or better than stated. However, the paired phone essentially must be within arms-reach, else it starts breaking up quite badly. Originally, I'd hoped to be able to set on a counter and work in a room or even work a couple of yards away in a garden, but that is simply not possible. I still really like them, just found the range to be disappointing.

    My girlfriend bought me these because I was bored at work after my LG Tones stopped working. It was the first head set I tried outside of LG but not my first experience with skull candy which is why I gave it a chance in the first place. Needless to say I am NOT disappointed. They are perfect for what I need them for and the design is surprisingly perfect for something that you wear all day. I gave it 4 stars because it took me a while to realize that the next and back button are combined with the volume up and down button. Outside of that the simplicity makes this headset surprisingly awesome I JUST LOVE THEM!!!!

    Purchased these today and the sound quality is very good. the only issue I had was when on the phone, the other person could not hear me very well. Sounded very distant. had to use the speaker on my device and then they could hear me fine. For this reason only I will have to return them and go back to my LG bluetooth. They seem to work and at a good price point as well. **If you only need to use them for your music and not talk on the phone. Then these are very good for that. I also saw some people had issues with the ear piece falling out of their ear. I changed my buds to the smaller one and they fit very, very well. No issue there for me.

    I bought these last night specifically for the gym and they worked great! I left my phone on a table and never had a connection issue throughout the entire room. They are light, but that is actually a good thing in this case. They move with your neck instead of being a constant presence you are aware of. My only complaint and the reason for the 4 stars is the cable up to the headphones is a bit short if you have a long neck. When I was stretching I could feel them tugging at my ears.

    A lot of blue tooth wireless headphones carry a hefty price. However, the sound quality is good, and they did not break the bank. I have not used them a ton, but the charge has held out while out doing yard work. The ear buds stay within the ear and the phone microphone provides good sound quality. The only issue I have had at this point is that sound has cut in and out while in the yard. This could be that I was too far away from my wireless router or there is interference with my Apple Watch. Once I can go to the gym and see, the verdict is still out on that potential issue. Otherwise they would have received 5 stars.
