    Not bad but have some issues

    Posted

    These are brand new and only available at Best Buy, right now, so I hadn't found any reviews and decided to take a chance. The instructions are sparse - a big folded sheet of paper with an annotated picture and terse descriptions of various functions... in a bazillion languages, but it's not hard to figure out how to use them. For me, the fit is pretty good, no complaints there, but I find the controls a bit hard to use. The buttons work different than those on my iPhone earbuds. For example, on these, to skip to the next track you press and hold the volume up button for about 5 seconds - which is a bit awkward, especially while running. More bothersome, the buttons are enclosed in a thick gummy plastic/rubber, which gives much less tactile feedback than the crisp buttons on other earbuds. As far as the sound quality, I think it's pretty good - crisp and balanced, with no hiss. The Bluetooth delay is minimal, so watching videos isn't a problem. The bass is OK, but not overwhelming. I guess many people might think it's a bit weak, but seems OK to me. But here's the first problem... they're just not loud enough. Now I'm NOT one to blast my ears, so it's not that I'm expecting 100 decibels out of them, but on many tracks, I have them maxed out and it's JUST at that "loud enough but really could be louder" volume. On other tracks (recorded "hotter" it seems), it's fine, and I can actually turn them down a few ticks. All in all, though, if this was the only issue I'd be pretty happy with them. Here's the bigger issue, though. They don't seem to play well with others. If I'm wearing them around the house, I get very few dropouts. Maybe one quarter second dropout every 5 or 10 minutes - which is tolerable, I think. But if I wear these around other Bluetooth devices, they stutter all the time. I figured I'd field test this by walking through Costco this past weekend. It was unbearable. Any time I got closer than a few feet from other people (presumably with cell phones) the earbuds would cut out multiple times a minute. Passing through a crowd, they went nuts. More importantly, this interference issue also keeps me from using them for my primary intended purpose. I wanted to wear them running (I'm getting to really hate my earbud cord when I run), but I'm also wearing a wireless/Bluetooth heart rate monitor (Wahoo Tickr Run), and they just don't work well together. When listening to music, the earbuds constantly skips. I've tested the HRM with the Bluetooth receiver in my car, and it works fine, so it's definitely these earbuds and not the HRM or HRM's phone app. So, if you think you don't need the extra volume, and don't use them much around other Bluetooth devices, they're great. But the ones I bought (maybe a lemon, I don't know) just don't cut it. I'm pretty sure I'll return them.

    These are some Burly Buds

    Although Skullcandy isn’t the best as far as headphones go, these buds specifically are ones I go back to. I’m going to go over their construction, battery life, usage, and price. Construction: Pros: These little guys are tough. I’ve put these things through the ringer of incidents. I’ve stepped on them; slept on them; pulled them; thrown them; sweated in them; and even had one bud fall into a cup of coffee (that one scared me the most). These things can endure which is why I use them for my workouts like bouldering and running. The ear bud runner is nice and texture with the company logo that even when I sweat these stay inside my ear. Lastly the cords connecting the battery pack to buds is awesome. It doesn’t feel flimsy like a round cable cover. The cord is flat and relatively thick. These are one of the very few buds that I have to worry about one of the sides going out. Cons: The plastic clasp that keeps the headphones from falling off the back of your neck when in use get worn done within a week or so. I usually end up tying them anyway so this is a minor inconvenience to me. Battery life: I’ve been able to use these puppies for about 7-8 hours on close to full volume when I first got them. After the second or third month I start to notice the battery life degrade to somewhere around the 6-7 hour range. Usage: Fairly simple to use with any device that has Bluetooth capabilities. The only time I notice the sound phase in and out is when I’m right by things like light posts at the crosswalk. Simple solution to this: a few steps away from the light post. These are now 40 (but I got these on sale for 30 not including tax or warranty). When they first came out they were 50 and that was a bit on the steep side, but the 30-40 range I think is pretty solid for what you are getting in this purchase— some kind of low profile, simple, tough wireless headphones with decent battery life.

    Good sound, annoying neck piece, poor call quality

    I bought these for a few reasons. My old off-brand bluetooth headphones I picked up to workout in (so I didn't have to tote my phone around) had terrible sound quality and died one day. Other than my Apple headphones that came with all of my iPhones I've owned, I have almost exclusively owned Skullcandy headphones for the past 10+ years so I figured my next pair of wireless headphones will be Skullcandy. I only wear these while working out (for the most part) but I also wanted some headphones where I could make a phone call. My old ones didn't work for calls. The mic didn't work on the headphones so I'd have phone near my mouth while listening through the headphones and these allow me to make calls but everyone says I sound distant/quiet. I was hoping to use them a lot more for work but that makes it hard when nobody can hear me. And that neck piece doesn't sit on my neck. It falls down and dangles behind me quite often so I may end up taking it off completely if I can but then the headphones will be really long and probably just as annoying. It regularly falls down while working out but was nice to wear under the collar of my shirt (it kept it in place and hidden) so when I'd make a call I'd pull the earbuds out of my shirt and put them in. But as I mentioned above it doesn't work great for calling. The sound quality is great and I will keep using them for the gym but that neck part is annoying.

    Good for the sub $50 price tag

    First and foremost I'll address my 2 biggest concerns with wireless earbuds; Sound, these were OK but for the price much, much better than other cheaper brands. I'd just say to have realistic expectations don't expect them to sound like $150+ wired over the ear earphones. Fit, I really liked the attachment that fit behind the neck. Its what drew me to these from the 1st version of JayBirds which I had fit issues with. This feature really took away the "pull" with other wireless buds that have the control on the cord which can pull the bud out of the ear while bouncing around. PROBLEM: Well I broke mine, they provide a small plastic clip to eliminate the wire from hanging & bouncing around. Now for others who I know that have these the bounce was not a concern, for me however since I run a lot & weight train with these I wanted them to be as secure & tight fitting as possible. OK now the negative of that little clip is, when the wire is pulled tight along your chin line it creates a path for sweat to follow the cord from ear down to the volume/call controls. I believe this is what shorted out the 1st pair, the manufacturer was great honoring their warranty however when going to purchase another pair I oped for the newer JayBirds which happened to be on sale. (returned them for the SkullCandy XT Free which has much, much better sound quality and allows the cord to rest behind your head eliminating the problem which broke these) In conclusion, they're OK especially if you want a pair of wireless in ear buds for under $50. I run a boot camp and a few clients wear these during our longer runs (per my recommendation) and none of theirs has broke so maybe I'm just really sweaty, lol. Anyways is a good product, great for the price just not one of the best if you've got a little more $ to spend.

    Perfect Headphones with Horrible Bluetooth

    I absolutely loved these Headphones. The sound quality was good, The semi ridged body fits nicely on your shoulders, The length of the leads is good and the build quality seemed very good too with slightly thicker leads to the ear buds I imagine they would have lasted a while. But then the actual Bluetooth connection quality.... Wow is this bad! Sitting at my desktop with my Bluetooth dongle about 2' to my left at hip height and direct line of site I would loose connection if I turned my head the wrong way and my neck obstructed the line of site to the Bluetooth dongle. I almost sent my dongle back thinking that was the problem till I connected these headphones to my phone and took them to work. With my phone in my pocket and the headphones in, I would constantly lose connection. If I leaned over to pick something up I would lose connection completely. Let me put this in perspective, I took these back and traded up to the Sony ExtraBase wireless headphones. With those on I was working in the basement and went upstairs and outside to get some tools from my truck when I realized my music was still playing but I couldn't find my phone. I went back into the basement to realize I had left my phone down there and it had continued to stay connected and play music from that far. pretty stark difference. Now before you go out and buy an ExtraBase by Sony. I would say I don't like the all around product feel nearly as much. That being said, they work very well so that's what I'm sticking with.

    Was expecting much more

    I love skull candy, I own many pairs of their headphones. From over-ear to in-ear. I have been using Skull Candy for years and I expected a lot from these headphones. I got the Samsung Galaxy S7, the headphone jack is in the bottom of the phone. I don't like it there so I decided to splurge and get myself some wireless headphones. I read some amazing reviews about these headphones and decided that I would get them. The first time I turned them on I was amazed at the quality. I thought it was going to disappoint, I turned them on in my room and listened to a couple of songs. Now, I don't know if it's because it's raining or what but I put my headphones around my neck and put my phone in my pocket. I turned the headphones on as I walked outside, threw my hoodie up, and played the music. Instant glitching music. I lift the phone out of my pocket to look at the music to see what's up. Nothing, the music is playing right (as it sometimes pauses and plays constantly when i'm in my car - Bluetooth). So my phone isn't doing the glitching and the headphones have been out of package enough to play a few songs, get charged, then go out and be used. No foul play, they've been sitting on my dresser for /one night/ as I got them Friday and today is Saturday. I don't know what's up but I expected much more. Guess i'll be returning these and using my regular Skull Candy in-ears. One thing I can say, however, is that the sound and bass lives up to Skull Candy's reputation and that's why this gets 2 stars.

    Great sound. Annoying issue with the bluetooth.

    Great sound and good bluetooth coverage although a bit of an issue with connecting. I connect the ear buds to my phone where I have a library of music to listen to. Once it is paired, the buds seems to connect and reconnect ok with my phone until my phone has connected/unconnected with another bluetooth device. I don't know if it's my phone or the headphones, but to recover I have to re-pair the ear bugs before I can use them again. My phone connects to a number of blue tooth devices (speakers, car and the like) and has never had a problem except with these ear buds. Annoying. I have not had a problem with battery life BUT.... turn off the buds when not in use otherwise the batteries continue to run down. The blue tooth on my phone will run my phone battery down so I have to keep an eye on it as well. I have not confirmed it you, but I suspect the battery life on the buds and the battery life on the phone will be about the same amount of time. For the record, I have a one year old LG G6 which except for the ear buds, has a great battery life! For the money, they have a fantastic sound, the bluetooth brought it down a couple stars.

    Picked these up on Black Friday weekend to try out my first wireless set of headphones. Unfortunately they stopped working yesterday. Only lasted me 12 days before the power control stopped working. Battery would charge but they wouldn't turn back on. The last time they worked they only lasted about 20 minutes into my workout before permanently retiring. Just glad i was able to return them to the store and not be a total waste of time trying to get them exchanged through the manufacturer because they claim it takes 4-6 weeks. That doesn't sound appealing so instead returned. My review for the sound, there really isn't any bass to the sound either. I prefer the wired apple headphones i received with my iPhone. I own some Skullcandy wired headphones that sound way better than these at only about $15. But i guess since you are buying to lower end of the wireless headphones you get what you pay for. The fit of the headphones are only comfortable when you are standing straight or on your stomach, if you try and do workout's on your back, they will keep sliding off. Another annoying thing is that when the battery drops to 20% you get the most annoying beeping sound letting you know they are low on battery and it keeps repeating until they die. Overall an okay set of headphones but i saved myself the hassle of problems in the future.

    I’m not an “Audio Snob” so I don’t care if the $250 set from Bose has “better modulation of sub-audible frequencies to massage the higher register through reverse osmosis”. Whether it’s AC/DC, Yanni, or a soul-sucking business conference call - These sound great. The in-ear fit is excellent and the neck band conforms perfectly. I can wear them all day and forget that they are there. Not sure why anyone would pay more for one of those bulky ones that look like some sort of neck massager from The Sharper Image when you can get these. I haven’t used them for long periods of time, so I can’t tell you they’ll last through your run in the Boston Marathon (let’s face it, if I’m running it’s because I’m in imminent danger), but they got me through that previously mentioned time-sucking conference call with plenty of juice to spare. So I guess I’ll let you decide if that’s good or bad. Overall great set of buds. Very pleased with Skull Candy products and this one has been the best yet.

    I bought these along with a pair of the Jaybird x3 which cost twice the price. I'm a bit of an audiophile and have more headphones than I can count. COMFORT: The battery and antenna portion that sits behind you neck is comfortable and really isn't' noticed, neither are the ear buds when Inserted in your ear ( this may vary for you as ears are different shapes and sizes) SOUND: To be honest they sound incredibly close or even better than the Jaybirds on some songs. The only real knock and its more because of how I listen to music sometimes (only noticeable if I'm focused listening to every detail in a song) is in some songs on the very very high sounds (Like in electronic dance music) I can hear a very slight crackle that is not there with the JayBirds or my Klipshe head phones. It doesn't take away from the music in normally listening, If doing literally anything other that giving my full attention and focus to the music I can't hear it, at all. As an inexpensive Bluetooth headphone, I'd gladly buy again with my picky sound taste. They stay on when I'm active, fit great in my ears, I've never had the battery die in play sessions that have lasted well over an hour. I think they would be hard to beat for the price especially as they can often be found on sale.

    I had the Skull Candy Ink'd 2.0 ones before and I've had them for a least 5 years now. One pair had missing ear bud cushions, and one I left at my mother in laws house. So I went to BestBuy to originally purchase the Aftershokz Bluez 2S, but they didn't have any in stock, so I actually ended up seeing these. I read reviews online, and saw they were pretty amazing. But, knowing they were wireless I had a doubt in my mind. Man was I wrong! These are legit just like the wired earbuds! I couldn't believe how amazing they sounded. Good solid bass, great low, high and mid tones. These are up there next to my beats imo. The comfort is fine for me, you have something that sits on the base of your neck, so some people might not like that, but it didn't bother me while working out. I don't see any problems with sweat and water getting into these, as they seem like a pretty solid and sealed unit. Pairing was super easy too, hold the skull down till it flashes blue and red, pair it on your phone and that's it! I took these out of the box, paired them, and listened to music at the gym for 30 minutes on whatever charge they had. If anyone is looking for a nice mid-price wireless headphones, I would highly recommend these.

    Worst Skull Candy's to date. Imagine everything you hate about corded headphones plus some. These have all of the annoyances of the cords being in the way of everything and the cords are awkward and just not ergonomical. There is an added bonus of having to charge it all the time. Possibly the most annoying aspect is that these will beep at you like every 5 mins for like the last 45mins of the battery life. A fully charged battery can stream music for 7.5 hrs to 7hrs 45 mins. 8hrs is unheard of, I wear these for an 8 hour shift at work and the last hour is annoying af with this thing beeping til it turns off. also bear in mind, I liked my last skull candys way better til both the earbuds stopped working. My biggest question to skull candy, would be: why would you design headphones where the cords stick out in front of your face? Overall I would describe these headphones as SUPER ANNOYING.

    Awesome sound, but they slip very EASILY!

    Let me first say that I was drawn to these after using Skullcandy ink'd earbuds. They were not wireless, but they were inexpensive with a great bass response. The Smokin' buds did not disappoint me when it came to The bass was there, the midrange was clear, and while the highs were not as crisp as I wanted them to be, they were more than sufficient. The earbuds had a comfortably snug fit in my ears, and there was very little sound leakage. I only wish I could stop there. Before purchasing these, I read reviews on how easily these can slip off the neck. I thought, "Well, I'll just have to be careful." But before I knew it, they were dangling down my back between my shirt and undershirt. It would happen from time to time, but most often while the earbuds were in my ears - NOT while they were hanging down providing some counterweight. Long story short, I ended up losing them when they just fell off my neck as I walked with my daughter. I didn't notice that they were gone until after I'd left the area (which was crowded at the time). If you look at a picture of these, you will be able to see that they are heavier toward the rear. Bottom line, they sound awesome, but prepare to lose them.

    Purchased these in white, wanted others to be able to tell I have on headphones, the black pairs would have been more hidden, I have long dark hair. The battery life is decent, wish it were a bit longer. They seem to have a quick charge feature. I just plug them in for a half hour or so, and can use them for a while longer. The silicone ear pieces are comfortable. I tried buying Comply Foam tips for them, but I have small ear canals, and those hurt after an hour, which is weird, the ones I got for my Jaybird headphones never gave me that problem. The included ear pieces don't hurt, and block out sound moderately, of course the Comply ones do a better job, but comfort mattered more to me. I like the included collar, and that it's removable. It keeps the wire in place around the back of the neck. I also like the attached sliding clip. It's helped when I was outdoors on a windy day. The collar would slide down my back and tug on the headphones in my ears, that got annoying, until I started using the clip. Overall, they are a great product for what I paid at the time of purchase, they were on sale. They were also the cheapest bluetooth headphones the store had at the time.

    First I will say this is my first bluetooth headphones so don't have any comparisons. They are easy to pair and sound good. I was concerned about the earbuds fitting well, but don't have any issue. Actually fit tight enough that music even sounds pretty good while mowing. They stay put while working out. I don't run but they work good while doing weights and the elliptical. Battery life is very good. I have only taken a couple calls on them and they sound good on my end. The people I talked to said I sounded good too. Things I don't care for. I am not sure that they wouldn't be better with a round cable instead of the flat. Seems like a round cable might be more flexible. But that is one thing I have got use to. The one thing I don't like is how you skip songs. You have to hold the volume button down. In itself that isn't bad but you have to hold it to long. So while doing activities I tend to pull the earbud loose a little bit while trying to skip a song. Plus it is on the left side and being right handed this is a little hard to get use to. I am still very pleased with them and got them on sale at Best Buy. So for the price I would purchase again.

    Pros: The cost is the biggest positive, with styling and achievable volume also being attractive.. Cons: Low battery capacity, freakishly annoying low battery indicator, and the controls. First off, I wear these while riding a motorcycle (must have tunes), and the controls are located too near the ear piece to operate easily if you're wearing a helmet. Secondly, since the controls are that close to the ear piece, you have to operate them by touch, as you can't see them while in use. Even bare-handed, the raised portions are very difficult to discern, and I usually end up pressing the wrong section, instead of making it louder, it stops the music altogether. Unless you're fluent in Braille, these are going to be problematic. Potential Issue: I haven't had them long, but the last time I charged them, the battery lasted about 20 minutes, and I thought that I had charged it for a long enough time. It's possible that I've created battery memory, (kind of quick for that to occur though), or the battery life is just atrociously low and the battery has degraded, but in either case, this could be a huge issue.

    I bought these headphones, as a 'holding off until Christmas' pair of headphones...at $40, I wasn't too worried about them being the greatest. However, as soon as I opened them, I was pleasantly surprised...while they were a semi-soft plastic that at first I was afraid I might break, I quickly realized it was very durable and malleable...they would bend instead of breaking, which was fantastic. Also, the actual ear buds, are oval in shape, instead of rounded the way buds normally are. I have small ear canals, and most in-ear headphones hurt me after 20-30 minutes of use. I was able to use these for a 10 hour work day...and then come home, and still didn't want to take them off. They fit comfortably and conveniently around my neck, and have a low enough profile, my boss has been fine with me walking around base using them. In fact, several of the my coworkers in the engineering department purchased a pair for themselves and/or family member for Christmas after I let them try them.

    Only OK for a Skullcandy product...

    I love most of Skullcandy's products. I've got several sets of both earbuds and over-the-ear headphones that I enjoy greatly. I have been looking for a decent set of Bluetooth earbuds to use while I mow grass, trim, etc. When I saw these, I was pleased. I got them all charged and ready to go and then discovered, for whatever reason, that, as someone pointed out in another post, they would NOT sync up with my iPhone 6S. So I tried my iPhone 4S and they did fine. Listened to them and they sounded great---until I went outside and started my mower (which, as far as lawn mowers go, is pretty quiet) and the sound from the earbuds just vanished! I turned the volume up on both my iPhone AND on the earbuds, but I could still barely make out the music over the sound of the mower. These buds would definitely be excellent in a quiet location (hospital, library, home workout room), but they are sadly inadequate when it come to using them while doing anything that creates a competing sound. I'll be returning these and likely just buy another pair of corded earbuds since those I can hear fine over my mower.

    I got these with a black Friday deal. Had I paid full price I would have returned them. The good: The sound quality is good, decent bass and overall pretty clear sound. It keeps a pretty stable connection for me. The only time it's been choppy for me, I think it has to do more with my phone than the headphones. Usually when I'm getting a lot of email or other activity on my phone. The bad: Having the receiver in the back of your neck is a bit of a problem, especially if you are using it with the cable management harness. It keeps falling down my back and starts to pull the ear buds. Without the harness it's not as bad because there is less weight to pull it down. Battery life isn't great, I'll get between 2-3 hours of music time before I need to recharge. Bottom line, you get what you pay for. If you are looking for a cheap bluetooth headset with good sound quality, these aren't a bad choice. More expensive ones are more well designed with better balance to them and longer battery life. I would recommend to a friend with those caveats.

    Bought these because I was tired of corded headphones getting in the way while I did yard work. The sound quality is pretty good and connecting to my phone is always easy. Unfortunately, I get some sort of interference when I'm out and about. These cut out frequently when my phone is in my pocket. It is usually only momentary but it gets annoying quick. There may be a firmware update I haven't checked into but I figure a Bluetooth connection from my pockets to my head shouldn't have any connection issues. This happens regardless of the pocket and whether I'm using power tools, the mower, or simple hand tools. If it weren't for this issue I would rate them higher. The battery life is decent. I would say I get 4 -6 hours of use each charge. Again, the sound quality is solid. The piece to hold the cables together is a nice touch and keeps the neck piece in place while using.
