      Don't pay more for anything else...

      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.

      These are Awesome!

      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.

      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.

      They're the Okay-est headphones ever

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      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.

      Was good while it lasted..

      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...

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      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.

      Great Headphones!

      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.

      Excellent Headphones

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      Honestly I'm extremely impressed by Skullcandy. It's been a while since I've purchased a Skullcandy product but these headphones look great, are durable, are easy to use, and sound incredible. I know sound is something that is somewhat qualitative. So after reading many reviews about the sound of the headphones I went to by local best buy and tested every pair I could. And these were by far my favorite sounding. Also, these headphones look great and have a much more mature look compared to previous Skullcandy products. And lastly, bluetooth range and connection strength are excellent, and the controls are super easy to use. Works great on my iPhone and with Siri. Great work Skullcandy!
