    Fantastic headphones for the price

    I have LOVED these headphones. They’re a fantastic option for those not wanting to spend $80+ on a good pair of headphones. Sure, you could find better. But probably not for this price. One of my favorite features is actually the ear buds themselves. Because of their shape, they mold into my ears perfectly. They’re super comfortable, and bonus: don’t budge! I hate it when my earbuds fall out, and I have not had an issue with these! I’m never going back to “normal” earbuds ever again. The comfort difference is very noticeable. They also provide good noise canceling. If I don’t have any sound running through them, I can still softly hear the people talking around me. But once you get the music going, that’s mostly all you can hear. Unless someone beside you is being really loud, I guess. But honestly- when I have my earphones in I don’t want to cancel out all chances of hearing things around me. It’s dangerous to cut yourself off from the world completely. Letting a little noise through is a good thing. And I feel like these hit that balance pretty well. (Though I would not recommend wearing both buds while driving. They work too well for that! You won’t be able to hear any traffic.) The only downside to these headphones (and skullcandy in general) is that you can very easily listen to them TOO loud. They have some serious volume power. So you could damage your hearing if you aren’t aware. This is easily remedied by going into your phone settings and limiting how high the sound level can go when you have earphones connected. (So you don’t accidently pump it up too high.) I have my iPhone set to only allow 50-60% volume when they’re connected. And it’s perfect. Loud enough to get the bass and deeper tones, but not loud enough I’m worried about my ears. I think you have to be aware of these things with earphones in general. So this isn’t a bad reflection on Skullcandy at all. Battery life has been good. I can listen all day without having to charge them. Though I haven’t timed it exactly. And they charge quickly from what I’ve seen. Last observation- At first I wasn’t a huge fan of having the plastic “U” around my neck, I thought I’d like the regular blue tooth version better- with a single wire connecting the two buds, but I appreciate the feature now. It allows me to quickly take out one or both earbuds without my earphones hanging there awkwardly or falling out. And I can wear them when I’m out and about, ready to use, without having to store then get out my earphones over and over. It’s nice, and I forget I’m even wearing it after a while. The plastic is flexible enough that it doesn’t dig into my neck at all. Overall, highly recommend!

    cost, sound and battery efficiency

    when it comes to bluetooth headphones, there are such a vast array of options, one might find it overwhelming. I primarily use my bluetooth headsets for use during athletic activity, often ranging from playing sports and lifting weights on the one side, to yoga on the other. not only does this particular pair of headphones sit comfortably around your neck, it also does an excellent job of staying firmly lodged in your inner ear. I believe that I paid somewhere in the range of 60$ for this item. for that amount of money, which is far less than other headsets I've purchased over the years, it does a wonderful job of producing enough volume and sound, clearly separating the tonalities and melodies present in modern music. another note to tac on to the end of this review would be this: the battery life, while even pushed to maximum volume, the shortest amount of time I've used it for without charging is right around six hours. the bluetooth connection is rapid, solid and steady. also, this version method wireless' bluetooth headsets is above and beyond the status quo. I also own a pair of the XT FREE headphones, which is the sweat proof model they make. the maximum battery life on that pair, I'm guessing due to the sweat/water proof design, is two hours. for me, its a no-brainer. method wireless from skull candy is simply the way to go.. utilizing the cost/sound/efficiency measurements and metrics described heretofore. highly recommended for athletes looking to eliminate those pesky cords while performing high intensity workouts and playing sessions, everyday music and movie listeners/watchers, as well as speaking on the phone. a quick caveat to add at this time: the microphone is located in the left branch of the neck-wrap, and it does a wonderful job of picking up any sounds not only produced by one's mouth, but it also somewhat eliminates background/bleed noise.

    I've owned skull candy for years and tried every tier of their in ear headphones and some of the over ear and have never been disappointed. I've even tried the powerveats wireless and their nice all around, but for the price I can't recommend them when these awesome headphones are less than half the price, have better battery life, and have better noise cancelling. I also feel that for my ears, skull candy always fits better. The beats were just slightly too big or too small with the provided inserts. At first I was looking at the smoking buds wireless but then noticed these and simply went by price and assumed these were better. They are. My coworker has the smoking buds and after trying mine wants to upgrade. The sport ear fittings cancel noise better and produce all ranges very well, bass is low and clear, highs are pronounced without being piercing. Very smooth sounding headphones for all types of music. I use these for more than 8 hours at work and they cause my ears less fatigue than any other headphone I've used which is nice. They're very easy to setup and use and the battery life is more than enough. They're also very light and have a groove for tucking the headphones up and away when not in use and they use a standard Samsung style cable to charge. I'm very happy with these and their price. Highly recommend for anyone that wants sound quality without paying for the name.

    This is my first review of any product that I have ever purchased. So here it goes. I have used Plantronics M55 earpiece for as long as I can remember. They typically lasted about 2.5 years and I would order a new one through Amazon. I never paid more than $30 for one. So when mine started to go out last week I went to order another one and WOW! The price everywhere went up to over $100. So I stared to look at other options, read reviews, compared what I found and looked to make a change. Then I saw this Skullcandy - Method Wireless In-Ear Headphones. I have never had a set that wrapped around my neck and I wasn't sure if I would like it. I have only had it a few days now but was so impressed that I had to write my first review ever. This headset is amazing. The sound quality is so incredible and when I ask the person on the other end of the phone how they sound, they don't believe that I'm on a wireless headset. I can't speak to how long they last since I just purchased them. But I am impressed. I would recommend all day long!

    Awesome bluetooth earbuds for travelers!

    Have been using these for a few weeks now after cycling through a couple different bluetooth headphones including Apple's new Airpods and Beats models. For the price, these Skullcandy ones are really tough to beat. I switched to these from a pair of PowerBeats2 earbuds because I didn't like the earhook design of the beats. I travel a lot and wind up pulling one earbud out to catch announcements at the airport, etc and the beats would always sit awkwardly with only one bud in. I was skeptical of these neckband style earbuds but after having used them now for several weeks, I don't think I'll go back to stand alone buds. It's a world of difference when you need to keep one ear free with this style. My main issue with earbuds is always volume on airplanes and I'm happy to report that these are great -- movie dialogue is clear and easy to hear and music volume is perfect. The PowerBeats were a tad bit louder overall but I honestly think the music profile is better on these Skullcandy ones - bass is strong and not muddy at all while the midrange comes through better than with the PowerBeats I feel. Overall, I highly recommend these and at the price - they are a no-brainer in terms of value for your money.

    SkullCAndy Method-in-ear system, i am very satisfied with this. I have tried multiple wired/wireless headphones/earbuds. This is a sport model, and easy to wipe sweat off it, and it stays clean. wraps around neck, comfortably, not too tight, but won't fall off easily. wires do not wrap around front of neck, wires don't get in way of your hands, and don't bug you by dangling UNDER your neck; they stay to the side of your head. ear buds are light, comfortable, because the battery and other controls are in the neck wrap-around, keeping the weight from the ears. one item (plus or minus, depending on your sound desires). Ear buds such as apple, don't seal the ear canal, thus easier to hear some outside sounds, but then you lose some sound. these ear buds fill the canal, thus sealing it, thus keeping all the playback sound, but muffling outside noise. I've gotten used to this, but if there were an air bypass hole in the ear cushion, it might let me hear outside noise better (if someone tries to speak to you while you're exercising), but I would not downgrade this model; it is, again, a plus or minus, depending on your desires. overall, very satisfied, and my wife LOVED them, so we ordered a pair for her also.

    Overdelivered

    So I ended up buying these to replace my Shadows that got broken. I was set to buy the Shadows but was looking for something slightly less expensive all the while hoping I wouldn’t sacrifice quality. I was expecting a decent pair of earbuds but they over delivered: so the Pros.. Sound Quality is great. No overbearing high end or tinny sounds the bass came through and also wasn’t overpowering. Great warm mix. FIt.. the larger buds didn’t feel right. They were too big and the sound felt filtered. Once I changed to the smaller buds 100 percent difference. Now .. volume. I am 70 percent dear in both ears. Most headphones and earbuds are far too low for me to get any significant use out of. The volume on these are impressive! I would have to say the only thing I would’ve changed is that the back neck piece connecting the buds is a hard plastic and hugs your neck and is a little awkward and uncomfortable at first. I think they would’ve benefited more by using a rubber style flex band. Overall on a score of 5. These would be a solid 4.7 only because of the neck band otherwise they’d be a 5.

    I have only had these Bluetooth Ear Buds for 3 days, but, so far I have easily "paired" them to My (4K / 3D) Samsung TV that is hooked up to a Samsung 4K Ultra 3D Blu-Ray Player w/4K Streaming Media Upscale. WOW, what sound to go with my 4K picture!!! But, they even gave me a "simulated" Surround Sound effect while watching a 3D movie!!! I had my TV set to play in Surround Sound mode, but, I never expected to get it out of these ear buds. I've also easily "paired" My Apple 7th Generation iPod, My ZTE223 Cell Phone, Windows Media Player on My Dell Windows 10 Laptop & WinAmp mp3 Player on My Samsung Android Tablet. I don't think there is anything else I own to try connecting to after all that, and I "paired" them ALL in about 2 hours. I certainly wouldn't spend the extra for Bose or Beats!!! (Although I've never tried Beats) Also, keep in mind that you want buds if your going to use them with 3D glasses. I tried My Bose "On Ear" Headphones, which were a nightmare to "pair" to My TV, and you just can't wear them with 3D glasses!!!

    After moving up to the iPhone 7, the new headphones jack was kind of a pain in the "you know what". I'm a regular gym bunny and I needed to upgrade my headphones because I lost the jack and... it was time to make the purchase. I understand people hesitation when dropping a ton of money on something that you feel like you could have buyers remorse. I've used skullcandy headphones before and had good success with them. I checked online and compared and Best Buy actually had the lowest rate by about $13. Read the fine print and make sure you're buying what it is you're looking for. Don't buy the cheapest one for the gym and miss out that you didn't get the sweat resistant. They're cute, they work, sounds good and they're worth taking a chance on. My only complaint.... there's no case for them. I have an uneasy feeling about just throwing them in my gym bag. It sounds like you're just asking one of the earbuds to be lost or ripped off by some unfortunate accident. So I ziplock baggy it. Get a color one too. It'll stand out better when you're looking for it. Just my 2 cents though.

    My routine is a 30-minute run and 45-minutes on weights, 5-days a week. Being as active, i require some solid headphones. I’ve used Beats, Jabra, Monster, and Jaybirds. All wireless and some classified as sports. Save your money on all those others and choose these. Skullcandy - Method Wireless are Perfect as they stay in place my entire workout. No need to continuously push them back in my ear after sweating profusely. And the neck wrap piece doesn’t jostle around, granted i constantly wear a sweater when i work out so i barely notice it. The noise canceling is close to perfect and the sound quality is no Bose but it definitely is workout quality! Pairing is simple and i’ve had no issues with it holding the bluetooth connection and i use it to pair between my iPhone and iWatch 3. Hope you take my advice into account as the quality and price make it worth it. Happy hunting!

    I have tried all sorts of Bluetooth headsets from the over the ear to these sporty ones that hang around your neck. I had Tone Pro Infinim for almost $200 & I loved these way better!! They fit around my neck very comfortably & I loved the pretty colored swirls on the earbuds. I am purchasing another pair to replace my last ones. I might consider getting them in white this time but I’m not sure yet. These are so comfortable that I fall asleep with them around my neck! They fit in my small female ears perfect! Every female that struggles with earbuds staying in their ears should try these & they won’t make you go broke like the $200 ones that aren’t this good. I can hear calls & music perfectly & nobody has ever complained about not being able to hear me. I only wish I could have them paired to my iPhone & iPad Pro at once like my old Plantronics Marque M2 let me do.

    Got these for my wife as she was not too happy with the Skullcandy Ink’d headphones. They’re similar in style, however the Method’s collar is rigid, while the Ink’d is flexible. You’d think the flexible collar would be the way to go, but you’d be wrong ( at least I was wrong). The rigid and light collar on the Method does a great job of staying in place, whereas the Ink’d wobbled around and twisted a bit. The Method also has wire guides so you can tuck some of the earphone cable away minimizing the risk of snagging and violently ripping an ear bud out while you’re working out or desperately swatting away the spiderweb you walked into. Long story short, great headphones. Like them better than the Ink’d, and like those 2 better than the Sony XB50BS

    I love skullcandy headphones and I was looking for something cordless for the gym. My search came to a stop once I got to these. They are comfortable and super light weight. They conform to your neck so you will forget they are on you at times. I am not one to spend 300 dollars for good bass or things like that. The sound quality is good and clear. It is worth the money, every song I listen to is clear (Spanish, English, German, Hindi, all the words are clear in every language). I wasn't looking for something with a lot of features, I simply wanted to replace my headphones with something that had no cord so I wouldn't injure myself at the gym. If you want other features then this might not be the headphones for you.

    First off to compare these to a lot of the $150 pairs would be unfair. But, for the price they are amazing. For $60 I have to listen from one set to a "better" pair to notice the difference. Good base, loud as you'll need it to be. Fit is great and so far no connectivity issues. Neck piece fits comfortably and sits very secure. I tried the jaybird x2s which didn't fit great and had little to no base. Tried the bose sport wireless and had terrible noise cancellation and could hear everything. These method earbuds are the best I've found for gym use, and for a very affordable price.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
