    I've linked these to my iPad, ASUS Transformer notebook, and Galaxy S6. The buds sound great, always have liked Skull Candy. However, I find that with the S6 the connection is lousy if I've the phone in my cargo pocket, jacket pocket. I'm only 5'7", so we are only talking 2' max from neck to pocket and the connection drops out, it's really bad if I'm laying on the ground (phone in cargo pocket, not back pocket) begins dropping connection in and out and then it quits. It seems like as long as I don't move they are fine, which sucks as the video on the Skull Candy website has a dude skateboarding. Wanted to love them as the sound is great, but they are pointless if they don't stay connected.

    Very poor connection

    These headphones are decent for the price but they are very poor as far as connectivity. You can put your phone in your pocket and they will lose Bluetooth signal. It even happens when I turn my head a certain way with phone right in front of me. I will say the sound quality is very good though.

    Look and feel is good. Music sounds goo but the only bad thing is that it looses connection often.

    The headset loses connection to my devices often. When you are working out and/or running this is very inconvenient.

    Have always enjoyed skullcandy products but this one kind of missed the bar. With lackluster bass and connection problems.

    They aren't great, but they aren't terrible. The biggest issue I have is that it loses connection sometimes and the music gets very choppy. Also, the earbuds aren't the most comfortable.

    While these look good, fit well in my ears, and seemed to be a good choice for the gym, I couldnt even have my phone in my pocket without then constantly skipping and cutting out. At first I thought maybe it was a pandora issue, but even on songs downloaded to my phone they would not stream well at all. 2 days in, and I'm returning these for something else.

    This product is very light and hardly noticeable by its weight. The overall sound is okay for ear buds. The only problem is the connection with the Bluetooth when it skips. Generally, this is a decent product.

    Very rich sound. Basic headset that's comfortable. But the connection cut out constantly when phone was pocketed. So it was an instant fail.it's a shame because it's a great headset when over major failing

    My initial reaction was very positive because they gave really great sound. A couple of days later, the connection to my iPhone 6 Plus became unstable. They'd work for awhile and then cut out. I looked at other reviews and read that this was a relatively common problem, and that Skull Candy tech support was unresponsive, so I just tossed them.

    I did not like the material used for the product. It felt like cheap product on using. The sound was not of good quality. Also the connectivity is not good enough. I was not able to connect it to mac. The iPhone also took time to search the bluetooth.

    I actually originally purchased the LG Tone Pro, but due to the very fragile and thin earbud wires, and the fact that they continually cut out, I exchanged them for the Skull Candy earbuds. I had read these were no loud enough, cut out, and have bad range. I've found none of these to be true for me. The LG buds continually cut out, these in the exact situation don't. The volume is great, and I've not had to turn them up to full volume as of yet. The range seems to be fine, about the same as any other I've used. The big difference in these and the LG and Motorola buds I had, these buds don't give verbal battery and connection confirmations. But I don't find this to be an issue, this is probably mostly a preference for most. I've found nothing that would be any concern to me and would recommend these for anyone looking for wireless earbuds.

    I bought these because I couldn't find the charging cord for my other earphones and I wanted an inexpensive pair for my run the following morning. These were bought completely at the last minute and without research. I've a hard time with earbuds, and had very low expectations. However, I've to say, these are now my favorites! They are comfortable, the band doesn't bounce or move around on my neck, and the earbuds actually stay in my ears! The sound is decent and stays connected to my ipod. I've had earphones that sometimes lose connectivity if the ipod is moved around. I think the sound quality is very appropriate for this price point. So far, I would recommend these without hesitation. I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I'ven't had them long enough to attest to the durability. I will amend my rating later if need be.

    For the price, it meets its value, barely. Decent sound with long battery life. The earbuds do not easily fall off like others do. When coming back into range with device, the headphones connect automatically which is a good feature. Comfort level is not too great in the ears. One vital feature it lacks is the ability to skip to the next song. There are only buttons to adjust the volume and play/pause, but non to skip forward or back. At times it is painful to put in ears, very slightly but still a bit of sting. And sometimes connectivity is an issue. It could be due to low battery, not sure.

    They are awesome headphones for being Bluetooth, great sound and don't fall out while running or exercising. My only downfall with them is the connectivity. I've had to replace these headphones twice now because it'll go in and out of pairing mode. Then it'll officially stop working after that. It's a hit and miss if you get a defective pair or not. My first pair worked for 8 months then failed. So I bought two pairs just this last month for my boyfriend and I, and his ended up being defective, so they replaced them free of charge. So truth be told ALWAYS get the warrenty! It's worth the extra 8$ but other than that no complaints.
