    Subpar sound, terrible connectivity

    If you like to use your headphones with more than one device, do not buy these. These headphones refuse to connect to my laptop after I've connected them to my phone earlier in they day. You have to constantly reset the headphones and re-pair with the device to want to connect to. The sound quality is subpar if you listen to music with bass. When you fold the headphones, one side will scratch the other and after awhile you'll accumulate a bunch of dull scratches. The buttons only control the volume, when much cheaper headphones and earphones can skip tracks and pause. The only thing noteworthy about this product is the battery life. It's lasted up to 4 hours with constant use before needing to be recharged.

    Great Headphones, Turn off Mic!

    These headphones are really great if you turn off the hands-free telephony. You can do this by going into your device and printers options. With it on you'll hear a quiet but audible static sound and you'll be able to hear yourself, making it much harder to enjoy your music. The sound on these headphones is really great! nothing sounds layered, all sounds seem to be coming from their own place. Finally, with the handsfree telephony off everything is crystal clear and even though the pads do not create a seal around your ears little noise will get in at medium or high volume.

    I purchased these headphones for the gym. I didn’t expect anything major from them. I just wanted some over the ear, bluetooth headphones. These do not disappoint. If u.are wanting to purchase a reasonably priced pair of Bluetooth headphones these will work just fine. Not sure about how long the battery lasts as I recharge them on the weekends regardless of how ling I used then.. Never the less, they have a quick charge feature. This is designed to charge for a short period of time (10–15 mins), and u will have an extended listening time.

    My wife and I bought these headphones a few months ago for the gym since we hate dealing with the cord going to our phones getting caught on stuff there. I originally had bought a cheap pair that had awful sound quality and didn't fit well so they constantly slipped on my head if I was moving around a lot. We tried these out mostly because I had good luck with Skull Candy before, and we were not disappointed. These have great volume, fit, and sound quality, and for the price I feel they can't be beat. Would recommend.

    This would be a nice headset if it was made a bit better. My daughter used these on and off for a week and the foam in the headset began to separate from the headset causing it to bunch up. The only thing preventing it from coming off entirely is the mesh that is over the ear phone. Super disappointing since the 15 day return policy had already expired when I noticed the issue. Yes I purchased the protection plan but I feel it’s unfair to use a 2 year protection plan on an item that began falling apart within a week of use.

    I purchased this for my 7 y/o son. They're very durable (he's taken it on plane rides and sometimes falls asleep with them on accident). The battery life is great, he can use them for a couple hours a day for a few days before needed to recharge it again. As far as sound quality goes, they're not going to beat the higher-tier brands but if you're looking for decent headphones at a decent price with amazing battery life, these will do the job nicely. Would buy again.

    I bought this product for my birthday, and love it so far ! The build is very sturdy, I use it all the time and it seems to hold up well so far. The only complaint I have is that id like to have a little more bass sound coming through. This is just a minor issues because the bass and all around sound is great, especially for the price. If you are looking for headphones that are great and are on a budget these are the ones for you!

    I was looking for some quality wireless headphones, but didn't want to shell out the dollars for the elite headphones (Beats, Sony, Bose). These SkullCandy wireless headphones have more than met my needs. The sound quality is great for my music as well as podcasts and the battery life is amazing. When you have to charge them, the charging time is very short from my perspective. I'm extremely happy with this purchase!!!

    I thought it was great. But after the first use, it just went dead. No light, I Charged it for several hours. Then It was paired with Aluratek Universal receiver and transmitter. I watched TV and listened to Syrius about 6 hours. For those 5 hours it had great performance. good low end; needs more mid and peak volume wasn't very high.

    Sound is just meh. Ear cups don't surround ears, so these aren't really noise cancelling as much as I like. And because the air cups don't go beyond the ear, they put pressure on my ear which is generally annoying. I bought these as a backup to another pair I have from another seller for the same price that sound better/feel better. On the plus side, they were easy to connect.

    I bought a $150 wireless headset but I didn't feel the sound was on par with the price tag. I returned them and on my way out saw these. I have to say I am very impressed with the sound quality! The highs are sharp and clear, lows are decent and overall the sound is excellent. Build quality is on the lower end, and I've found them a bit tight to use for an extended period of time. But for the price tag, the sound is amazing!

    Purchased these headphones for a preteen during the 2018 holiday season. Was looking for an affordable pair of wireless headphones for use with her cellphone and iPad. These definitely fit the order considering quality, suitability and price. Durable, stylish and functional. Easy Bluetooth connection, simple controls on the exterior earcup and a LONG battery life make these an option for consideration!

    Great wireless headphones with fast charge

    These wireless headphones are great for sound, movement, and most importantly the lifespan on wireless battery until it dies. You got up til 5 hours until it needs a recharge which is perfect. Only reason why I give it 4 out of 5 stars is because if you're a person with big (like me), part of your ears might not fit the entire thing. Also needs padding on the top rim for comfort.

    Wife uses this headphone for TV programs she finds difficult to hear, mostly movies. Does the job great. While wearing the phones, she can still hear me talk to her. Definitely serves her purpose for buying and worth the low price. It is much more comfortable than the wireless in-ear headphones she previously used. Easy to charge, turn on & off, and change volume. She's very satisfied.

    Didn’t want to break the bank on headphones for the gym. These more than exceeded my expectations. Great sound quality, great bass. They feel lighter than beats solo models, but I have a larger head(7 3/4) and they fit great. Ear cushions are lightweight and don’t leave marks or trap sweat. Overall would highly recommend for gym headphones!

    traditionally I'm not a huge fan of the Skullcandy brand, I felt like they were a little cheap. However I bought this pair for vacation because I did not have headphones and I found that they are a decent quality headphone. I think for 50 bucks this is a headphone that you can listen to music on and take to the gym. I gave them to a friend because she liked them so much.

    we bought this Bluetooth headset for our son, so we wouldn't be listening to the sounds coming from his ipad the whole day.The headset has a very good sound quality, and the battery lasts very long. I now use it myself when watching my online training sessions and/ or webinars, while the kids are watching tv.

    Bought these to give me some headphones to wear when I'm working in the shop. They easily seal out most of the noise from the hand tools I use (including an orbital sander on sheet metal which is extraordinarily loud). They have a great sound signature, and have a great battery! Highly recommend!

    The headset is very comfortable for someone with a larger head. The cushions on the ear pieces are soft and wont hurt the ears over a long time of wearing them. I like the fast charging feature. Wish the controls on the headset were a little more defined. Mic seems fine, however I've heard it catches a lot of background noise.

    Purchased the headphones for my son who wears earbuds constantly but always destroys the wires. He loves these and I tried them on and they have really good sound and are pretty comfortable. The only negative is the charging cable is very cheaply made. But it’s a very common charging cable.
