      These are great and I'm surprised by the sound these buds can produce! was skeptical of the inked series buds fitment but they do not fall out as easily as you expect. With the battery and controls on a neck piece, this allow the buds to feel lighter in the ear and less cumbersome than the BT headsets with battery/controls on the buds. This allows the user to easily use one headphone if they're in an environment that requires one ear to be free. Something to be mindful of, the neck piece has a relaxed fit, meaning if you're too active they will fall and yank the buds out you ear. Walking or just moving around a work space will sit just fine. Controls are simple, to volume up/down, you just have to press plus or minus button. To change tracks you have to hold plus or minus. Play and pause, press the center, and to power on/off, you just have to hold the center. Though changing tracks seems to take a while when holding down the controlls than I'd like. Sound quality is great for the price and nothing sounds muddy if you have good quality music streaming through. Bass is very present with the proper seal. I recommend inserting the earbuds like you would foam ear plugs, pulling the ear back and inserting the headphone. (FYI: it gets a little tougher to get a good seal if there's some ear wax present of if you're sweating (keep'em clean and dry'em out!). MOTORCYCLE STUFF: These fit great under a full face helmet if you aim the wire from the buds as straight down as possible. Of course if one gets loose, you'll need to finagle a finger to set the ear bud back in place (as with any earbud) With large buttons and light textures for the three buttons, the controls are very easy to distinguish with (summer) gloves on. Wouldn't try to answering a call while riding, there is no wind noise reduction to help out especially since the microphone is integrated with the controls (which will be on your neck out in the elements)

      Not What I was Hoping For

      I bought two pair of the Skullcandy Ink'd Wireless In-Ear Headphones. I had really high hopes for them, as I am a loyal Skullcandy customer and will only purchase their headphones. I love the design. They are light weight. Can be folded for compact storage. Batter life is good. Audio quality, when there is no interference, is on par with the wired Ink'd headphones. My complaints are the controls and the wireless connection. Controls: I love that you can control everything from the phone, but there has to be an alternative for switching a song by pressing the volume +/- buttons.You have to depress the buttons for entirely too long before the song will switch. Not a deal breaker, but still annoying. I think if you only had to depress the button for a second or so less, it would definitely take care of the problem. Wireless Connection: This drives me absolutely insane. If I so much as lean over my phone while it is laying on my desk, the signal cuts out and the music/call stops. Meanwhile, my extremely cheap external bluetooth speaker that is used at home will keep a signal if the speaker is in the living room and my phone is downstairs on a bed and under blankets and pillows. It is almost useless as a hands-free device because you have to hold the phone in your hand in order for the audio to continue through the headphones and not cut out. You can't put your headphones in your pants pocket or hoodie or backpack. You must leave it on a table surface and uncovered for it to be useful. I can get by with the product, but I am severely disappointed in the quality. I expected much more from Skullcandy. I will either stick with the cheaper wired Ink'd headphones or search elsewhere for a decedent wireless product.

      Great affordable Bluetooth Earbuds!

      I seem to have oddly shaped inner ears so I always look for in-ear earbuds with soft earbuds and not the hard earbuds like the traditional iPhone earbuds. My brand of choice is always Skullcandy because they fit well, have good audio quality and are quite affordable. These bluetooth earbuds match the quality of the wired Skullcandy earbuds I've come to depend on. These are my first pair of bluetooth earbuds and I'm not an audiophile, but to me the audio quality is great. I use them to listen to both podcasts and music on my iPhone and I haven't noticed any distortion of either spoken words or music in comparison with the wired earbuds I've always used. The neckband is flexible it's not hard like other bluetooth headsets I've seen, but I don't think that's a drawback, at least it wasn't for me. I appreciate the neckband because I tend to either lose or break earbuds on a fairly regular basis. Keeping these around my neck during the day keeps me from doing either and having to buy another pair. I use these for several hours listening to music at work and the battery life is quite good. I haven't specifically timed it, but I know I get at least 12-13 hours on a full charge and they're not dead when I get home. They charge using a microUSB to USB charger that's included in the box with the headphones. Again, I haven't timed it, but I think these earbuds only take a few hours to fully charge, perhaps a bit longer. I usually attach them to the charger overnight so they're ready to go when I leave for work in the morning. Overall a great pair of earbuds for a price that won't break your wallet.

      Comfortable, Quality Sound

      The Skullcandy Ink'd Wireless In-Ear Headphones are surprisingly comfortable. I generally don't like anything around my neck, but I don't notice these at all when I wear them while moving and walking. The sound quality is excellent. I bought these especially to use while sleeping (listening to sleep meditation music). I sleep on my side with a travel pillow, so my ear is in the open center hole and is not pressed against the pillow itself. Other headphones I've used over the years work okay for this purpose, but they weren't entirely comfortable. These headphones are completely compatible with this type of use. I use them for several hours while sleeping, and they remain in place and remain comfortable. I use the headphones most nights, and so far, I haven't had problems with the battery running down. The only reason I have given this product a four is that the microphone is apparently not noise canceling. When I use it with my phone, people have sometimes complained that the microphone picks up a lot of noise in my background. So I use my other bluetooth headset for my phone. I am very pleased with the overall performance of these headphones. I am considering getting a second set to use when I'm in my office.

      Surprisingly good for the money

      After searching the reviews for various earbuds on line, I happened to be in Best Buy for another purchase and wandered over to the earbuds to take a look at them "in person". I was a little skeptical about buying a set of phones that hung around my neck. Past experiences were not pleasant with wired phones but since they were on sale and I had some rewards I purchased them. When I got them home I charged them up and tried them out on my laptop. WOW! I was totally surprised with the sound quality and clear lack of distortion. I was especially impressed with the ample but not overbearing bass. Since this initial test with my laptop I have used them with the Samsung S7 Edge I recently upgraded to and am very impressed again with the comfort and sound quality. They are completely noise cancelling so I don't have to blast them to drown out ambient noise. I am currently trying to get them to work with my Samsung 4K smart TV as to drown out the neighbors kids and dog when watching TV. The wire length from the neck part to the buds is totally adjustable so I can get the right fit when I wear them on my daily walk or when doing noisy chores like vacuuming. I just can't see spending $100.00 to $250.00 for some of the high end buds. The law of diminishing returns simply makes these the best choice for a reasonable price.

      Awesome headphones

      Posted
      Jimmy

      I can honestly say I was a little concerned about choosing the right pair so I decided to go with these.I must say as soon as I used them I was totally satisfied. They are nice and light ,they don't fall off if you're looking up doing something ,the battery lasts a long time,and most importantly they've got great sound (nice deep bass).I recommend to anyone buying headphones that if you are not happy with your sound you can always go on Google play (free) and download a headphone equalizer and tweak the sound to your personal liking. I would also recommend if you are spending $50 and up,splurge on the 2 year warranty plan,it's worth it's weight in gold,trust me .In conclusion I'm tired of hearing my wife watching stupid Facebook videos so I may be heading up to best buy for a second pair.

      Skull Candy does not disappoint with these earbuds! The sound is amazing! I have them paired with every device I have (tip, turn off your Bluetooth on already paired devices or it won't pair to new ones). The cord is a little on the thin side which has me a little scared. But I'm very careful. The buttons are a bit confusing but I think that's because I'm used to the corded buds. I keep turning it off by accident. You can advance by holding down the volume up button for a moment, you'll hear a beep just before it goes to the next song. Same for replaying and going back, but press the volume down button for a bit till you hear the beep. The sound quality of calls is excellent. Although, I don't use them much for calls. Only because I've never had Bluetooth before and I'm not used to it. My only regret is that I didn't get insurance on them. If they break, I'll die!!! Lol! Great buy. I will be buying a second pair for just in case and I'll be sure to add protection! Can't get enough of these earbuds!

      worst range in any blutooth, poor battery

      This blutooth is alright it has highs and lows but missing mids. Which for once one can live with especially with the type of music we listen today. But the connectivity is one of the worse. Its probably like 10 feet not 33ft as suggested by manufacturer. And even if i simply put phone in my jeans pocket it will start to like skip parts of songs and lot of disturbance, it constantly connect disconnect. Also the battery is not upto wat manufacturer claims it drains battery even while not in use as fast as if you were to be talking or playing music on it no standyby mode saving. Plus other person hear all the background noise and everything else but your voice. Just not built properly very poor for skull candy standards ill rather pay more money then dealing with this. Ill be returning it today under 15days period.
