      FANTASTIC Headphones

      These headphones are FANTASTIC!!! Overview: My husband has recently gotten into streaming and online gaming. I really like being supportive of his new hobby, but he sometimes he get really loud. That's when I decided I needed a better pair of headphones. Not only do these block out his gaming chat, they are comfortable as well. They connect with both my laptop and my phone without any trouble, and the headphones even come with an option to plug via a 3.5mm jack if bluetooth is not available. Battery life is wonderful as well. Sound: 9/10 - These headphones block out casual conversations and deliver crisp audio. When my husband streams I rarely hear him (and he can get quite loud). The volume controls are nicely located as well. Apperance: 7/10 - The headphones themselves are pretty bland. There are not a lot of markings and they are a solid color. They are by no means ugly, but they do not pop out in a crowd. However, if you know someone with a little creative flair you can attach your personality to them (like I did)! Comfort/Design: 9/10 - These are over-the-ear headphones, meaning that they do not sit on my ears. This prevents my ears from getting hot, which allows me to wear the headphones for longer periods of time. The padding is properly placed as well to keep it from squeezing my head. Battery Life: 10/10 - I charge these headphones once a week. 'Nuff said, right? I use them moderately (average 2 to 3 hours a day). Worth/Quality: 10/10 - Considering the other headphone options out there, many of the features of these headphones rank up with higher priced brands. I would expect to pay AT LEAST twice the price for the same quality in other brands. Overall: 9/10 - These are good headphones. They are well priced. They do the job! I would recommend trying them out in the store first, as I did, just to make sure that the style works for you. I tried on every pair in the store on the headphone aisle and was completely unsatisfied until I came across these off to the side in an obscure place. It was definitely a great find.

      I honestly can't believe I just left Best Buy with these for only $129. The sound stage that these cans offer is definitely worth more and above anything from SkullCandy that I've listened to before. I bought these to replace my Hesh 2's, which I bought after losing my Sol Master Track Calvin Harris's and getting a phone w/o a headphone jack. I was sufficiently happy with the Hesh 2's, though they definitely had a different sound than the Sol's. A much more consumer oriented and narrower sound stage. I used the Hesh 2's from time to time, but recently started using daily as part of my work and found the ear cushions to be uncomfortable. Since the Hesh 3 cushions looked more like the Crusher cushions, I decided to give them as shot. Pros: Cushions - definitely more comfortable than the Hesh 2. Wide sound stage. Brilliant highs and mids. Bass with great depth. Punchy, but nuanced without being muddy. Size - The Hesh has been on a diet! I don't feel quite so ridiculous wearing them on the street. Cons: They do feel cheaper than the Hesh 2. Just not as sturdy. But you gain some portability from this. Ultimately, time will tell. Some people have complained about lack of a carry bag. I don't need one, but since I've had cheaper cans with bags, I figure it's a miss that should be corrected. Audio Listened: Zero burn-in, as I just got these. But Tech N9ne - Sriracha and Speedom (WWC2), Bon Iver - 715 Creeks, Trampled By Turtles - Wait So Long. Impressed by all. Buy these.

      Excellent bluetooth headphones at a great price

      I'm very picky with how my headphones sound. I listen to a variety of music ranging from pop, R&B, hip-hop, electronic, alternative - and these headphones handle every genre well. Clear vocals are very important to me when I'm listening to electronic music with female leads or when listening to ballads. I bought a pair of V--Moda Crossfade Wireless headphones to compare, and the Hesh 3 blows them out the water. The Crossfade Wireless are bass dominant, but do not provide clear vocals or crispy highs. The Hesh 3 provide sparkly highs, tremendous clarity in the mids, and punchy bass without drowning out anything else. In terms of sound quality, the Hesh 3 are superior to the V-Moda's in every way. At this price point, the sound quality Skullcandy managed to engineer into these headphones are an absolute marvel. The headphones are light and comfortable to wear for hours on end. I wear glasses and experience no discomfort on my head or ears. The ability to charge the headphone for 10 minutes and gain 4 hours of playback time is incredible. The mic is also pretty good for phone calls. The person on the other end said I sounded clear and I could hear them clearly as well. The Hesh 3's design is sleeker and better looking than the predecessor Hesh 2's. My only qualm with this pair is in the build quality. The frame seems to be made from a cheaper plastic, which makes me concerned about long term durability. However, only time well tell how they hold up. If you are looking for an affordable, wireless pair of headphones with superb sound quality, this is the pair to get.

      My made the purchase of the over-the-ears headset upon the advise from my daughter. I wanted to listen to my Sony TV X800e in the bedroom. Unfortunately the Sony TV won't pair with anything but Sony headphone with a transmitter, so I returned them and purchased the Skullcandy with the Mee audio transmitter. The transmitter is so easy to set up and connect with these headphones. I was amazed and so happy with the sounds I heard through this headset. I wasn't sure which Skullcandy headset I wanted but the Hesh 3 was on sale for $79.99 so I went with them. I listened to the TV for hours and they are so comfortable. The Sony headset was not as comfortable and too big for my head. The Skullcandy fit my head and are adjustable. I love this headset and will continue to use them until they wear out then I will buy another pair. You can't go wrong with the Skullcandy Hesh 3. Another good thing about them is they fold up for travel and they charge fast. The charge will last along time and you don't need to worry about them going dead while watching TV or listening to music. Some people complained about the bass sound but I did't have a issue with the bass sound.

      They're the Okay-est headphones ever

      The headphones are great in the bass department but lacks a bit of an acoustic department. Just a bit. You'll find that these headphones are enjoyable and deliver the musical experience you seek. But to meet expectations, it sacrifices aesthetics. You'll most definitely appreciate the over-the-ear headphones but you'll dislike that fact that they can be a bit tight at times, causing you to sweat. A lot. They also make your head look big because they stick out from the sides a bit more than they should. You turn up the volume just a tad bit too much and someone will comment how loud your music is. However, turn the music down just a notch and you'll find it annoyingly unsatisfying. The buttons on the back of headphones are made to combat this, which are conveniently placed on the right side of the headphones, creating a quick and comfortable position to change the volume or switch tracks in a jiffy. Skullcandy also acknowledged the earphone jack community by throwing in an AUX cord that you can connect to your phone should your headphone battery die, which rarely happens due to its massive battery size and quick charging capabilities. In conclusion, these headphones are great for their price, delivering a satisfying hearing experience at the cost of being comfortable which may vary between people and temperature.

      I purchased theses a few months ago, and initially I found the Hesh 3 Wireless to be a very good set of over-the-ear headphones. They felt comfortable, had a good range of sound and are wireless with Bluetooth, all positive in my book. However, just yesterday as I went to put them on, the plastic by the ear cone snapped, broke clean away and left the ear piece just swinging there.. Now, I'm pretty gentle when it comes to my possessions, even more so when it comes to electronics. I keep my headphones safe, away from any source of danger that can do them harm, so I was quite shocked when these just simply cracked so easily. In my experience, I've never had a set of headphones do that, especially ones that are relatively new. Im not going to say do or don't buy them, but I wouldn't recommend them to a friend, that's for sure. They are great when it comes to what they are supposed to do, but that plastic was so weak. I'm dissapointed in these and myself for not buying the extra plan from Geek Squad. Now I'm out $100.. but at least I learned a few lessons.

      Sound is amazing, quality not so much...

      I had the Hesh 2 wired version of these and they are phenomenal both in terms of sound and build quality. I got a new phone without headphone port, so wanted to go wireless. Of course, I thought the Hesh 3 would be perfect, and during a sound test in-store, I was right... they sounded just as amazing as the Hesh 2. My low review is due to these having questionable build quality. The Hesh 2 were made up of more metal coated with either plastic or rubber. The Hesh 3 in comparison, have more plastic where it counts--joints and adjustable parts of the Hesh 3 are plastic with no metal at the core. As a result, I am on warranty claim #2 within my first 9 months of ownership. First time, the plastic covering the headband broke, now the 100% plastic holding the left ear phone is broken. I may have to go with a more robust headphone next time around.

      I have a pair of Bose Noise canceling headphones but they are wired and I have been wanting a pair of Bluetooth wireless for sometime but just didn’t want to spend the money. Started looking around and saw the Skullcandy Hesh 3 over the ear headphones and boy am I glad I bought these. The sound is great and they are very comfortable even on long flights and best of all they were very inexpensive when compared to other headphones in their category. The other thing that I like is that they come with a headphone jack cable so they can still be used if you forgot to charge them and the device you are using has a headphone jack. I only wish they came with a storage bag like the previous model the Hesh 2.
