    I don't know how the sound is. They are kinda of bulky and looked uncomfortable to jog using because the larger part would bounce. I exchanged them for a smaller brand.

    Good sound with these wireless earbuds but not the best choice to use for working out. A little bulky on the sides.

    These sound goooood but have the tendencies to fall off because of bulky neck ring. Get rid of those and make it just a wire then these would be the best I have tried.

    I am pretty impressed. I do not like how bulky the neck piece is, but think it is better for the wires. Good sound, comfortable buds.

    My only issue is the neck piece- it's bulky and tends to slip off my neck. Without it, it's worse- the earbuds fall out. Not good for running, but fine for use while going about your day!

    Works great. Quality is as good as wired earphones. Felt bit bulky on the neck until I got used to it. Great buy especially if its on sale

    After purchasing the Skullcandy Hesh 2 over-the-ear headphones and loving joining the wireless club, I decided to get these as well. They work great for working out in the yard. No more catching the wire of corded headphones on something and ripping the buds out of my ear. The back is a little bulky, but do help make them not move around as much.

    Sound is adequate and good but design sucks. The weight of the part where the battery is located pulls on the earbuds and pulls them off your ears. This is a poorly design. The holder is bulky and annoying to wear. Long story short, I bought them right before the gym, I am wearing them now as I work out, I will be returning them right after the gym.

    I bought this product after my Samsung headphones broke. The sound, fit, and color is great. It can feel a little bulky at times around my neck, but not as much as my Samsung pair did. Great bass and highs. Fit my ears very well, but I wouldn't recommend snatching them out too fast.

    I tried out a pair of Sony bluetooth earbuds first but found them too bulky and didn't stay attached as I moved around. I returned those ones and got these, and am very pleased with the functionality. They stay in my ears while I run and they're very comfortable. I wouldn't recommend them for daily use, especially in winter. They were a bit awkward wearing outside with a scarf.

    I purchased this to replace the earbuds that my daughter broke. I wanted something different, so I decided to try these. They was working for a while, but I didn't like it. I expected more from a Skullcandy product, but got less. It was bulky, it drained the battery on my iPhone, and it wouldn't pair up with my phone the next day. I ended up returning these and got the Sony earbuds.

    I purchased this device with the intent of using it at the gym more than anything else. The device is made with cheap hard plastic and it's uncomfortable, specially when you look up and you feel the bulky part behind your neck. Long sory short, I return it a few days after I purchased it. The sound is decent and the calls are ok. Not the greatest signal as some phone calls seemed to have dropped but for the money it's ok. I just needed to invest in a more well thought of and better built wireless headphone system. This was not the one for me. I have seen a few people at the gym with them and they seem to like them but for me, it was not what I needed or wanted.

    comparing to Jabra Rox and Jaybird X, skullcandy sounds the best. It's loud and good bass. 5hr+ on music plays. Earbuds stay in the ear with no problem. It's not big and bulky. I don't feel any pressure on my ears when I wear my winter hats. The battery neck collar is light and doesn't bother my neck. It feels very light and very conformable. I've been using it for 2 months now and I got no issues yet.

    Overall a good basic wired/wireless headset. Got it more for durability and portability. Had a set of Ink'd but wires so thin that one side stopped working. Got these because of the heavier duty cord to the buds. Have always liked Skullcandy..... but as other reviewers commented, the battery like is not great. The sound is good and they are comfortable. The power switch is also cumbersome. Good for the price and had points to use so brought price down under $40. Would not pay full price. Recommending to a friend with the above reservations.
