    This is my first set of wireless headphones. I was looking at LG as well as J birds. I'm a review freak, and I scanned reviews for DAYS. I went into best buy to get the Dr. Dre Beats, but I did not care for the over the ear piece. I read some reviews that it hurt after a while, and I was afraid it would bother me, not to mention the fact it's easier to just put take an earbud in and out. Pros: 1. Inexpensive! Some of these things cost over $150. Can someone explain this to me before my time to return runs out? 2. I like the band around the neck. It doesn't bother me at all. This allows me to have just one ear bud in, and let the other one dangle while I'm at work. I do NOT find the band too tight, and I have a normal size neck for a female(at least I think so). 3. Good sound. I've answered calls and there was no feedback, and the person on the other end said I sounded very clear. 4. You are able to pause or restart a song. I still need to read the directions thoroughly, but I like this feature. 5. Charge life. So far I just charge them everyday, and have been able to use them for the entire day at work. 6. It is so nice to not have to plug into my iPhone. No more dropping my phone or getting all twisted up so that my earbuds rip out. Cons: 1. I wish the range was further, but I think for the price, it's worth the compromise. It's only an issue at work or if I'm cleaning the house. If I'm working out, my phone is within the range or in a pocket. I'm not sure how long these will last, but I'm happy so far. My friend who has the more expensive Jaybirds says she has to replace them once a year, and has the Best Buy warranty with them, so they just give her another pair.

    when it comes to bluetooth headphones, there are such a vast array of options, one might find it overwhelming. I primarily use my bluetooth headsets for use during athletic activity, often ranging from playing sports and lifting weights on the one side, to yoga on the other. not only does this particular pair of headphones sit comfortably around your neck, it also does an excellent job of staying firmly lodged in your inner ear. I believe that I paid somewhere in the range of 60$ for this item. for that amount of money, which is far less than other headsets I've purchased over the years, it does a wonderful job of producing enough volume and sound, clearly separating the tonalities and melodies present in modern music. another note to tac on to the end of this review would be this: the battery life, while even pushed to maximum volume, the shortest amount of time I've used it for without charging is right around six hours. the bluetooth connection is rapid, solid and steady. also, this version method wireless' bluetooth headsets is above and beyond the status quo. I also own a pair of the XT FREE headphones, which is the sweat proof model they make. the maximum battery life on that pair, I'm guessing due to the sweat/water proof design, is two hours. for me, its a no-brainer. method wireless from skull candy is simply the way to go.. utilizing the cost/sound/efficiency measurements and metrics described heretofore. highly recommended for athletes looking to eliminate those pesky cords while performing high intensity workouts and playing sessions, everyday music and movie listeners/watchers, as well as speaking on the phone. a quick caveat to add at this time: the microphone is located in the left branch of the neck-wrap, and it does a wonderful job of picking up any sounds not only produced by one's mouth, but it also somewhat eliminates background/bleed noise.

    Tried to get away with a cheap bluetooth headset

    I used this headset for both work (taking calls) and general music listening; both at work and while at the gym. After about 2 weeks of wearing this for about 8 hours a day/5 days a week, the neckband was so stretched out that it wouldn't stay on my neck unless I adjusted it constantly and/or kept my head down. The moment I tilted my head back, the band would fall off and if I didn't have the headphones in the whole thing would fall off. This, along with the qualms below caused me to return this after about a month. Now in fairness, I do have a thicker neck, so it started off quite tight against my neck at the beginning. Beyond that, the sound quality was very okay. I'm not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love music and listen to it all the time, so I have a decent idea of what sounds good and what doesn't. These just sounded acceptable; nothing exciting, but not as bad as your standard Apple earbuds. Battery life was decent, no real complaints there. Bluetooth connectivity was pretty poor; if you had the phone in your pocket, but were bent over, there was a good chance that it would start to cut out. So even at close proximity the connection was spotty. Sometimes the only sure was to power off and the power back on the headphones. All in all, I ended up trading up for the Jaybird x3s, and have been way happier with those in this first week.

    I've owned skull candy for years and tried every tier of their in ear headphones and some of the over ear and have never been disappointed. I've even tried the powerveats wireless and their nice all around, but for the price I can't recommend them when these awesome headphones are less than half the price, have better battery life, and have better noise cancelling. I also feel that for my ears, skull candy always fits better. The beats were just slightly too big or too small with the provided inserts. At first I was looking at the smoking buds wireless but then noticed these and simply went by price and assumed these were better. They are. My coworker has the smoking buds and after trying mine wants to upgrade. The sport ear fittings cancel noise better and produce all ranges very well, bass is low and clear, highs are pronounced without being piercing. Very smooth sounding headphones for all types of music. I use these for more than 8 hours at work and they cause my ears less fatigue than any other headphone I've used which is nice. They're very easy to setup and use and the battery life is more than enough. They're also very light and have a groove for tucking the headphones up and away when not in use and they use a standard Samsung style cable to charge. I'm very happy with these and their price. Highly recommend for anyone that wants sound quality without paying for the name.

    Perfect Bluetooth Connections!!!

    I have only had these Bluetooth Ear Buds for 3 days, but, so far I have easily "paired" them to My (4K / 3D) Samsung TV that is hooked up to a Samsung 4K Ultra 3D Blu-Ray Player w/4K Streaming Media Upscale. WOW, what sound to go with my 4K picture!!! But, they even gave me a "simulated" Surround Sound effect while watching a 3D movie!!! I had my TV set to play in Surround Sound mode, but, I never expected to get it out of these ear buds. I've also easily "paired" My Apple 7th Generation iPod, My ZTE223 Cell Phone, Windows Media Player on My Dell Windows 10 Laptop & WinAmp mp3 Player on My Samsung Android Tablet. I don't think there is anything else I own to try connecting to after all that, and I "paired" them ALL in about 2 hours. I certainly wouldn't spend the extra for Bose or Beats!!! (Although I've never tried Beats) Also, keep in mind that you want buds if your going to use them with 3D glasses. I tried My Bose "On Ear" Headphones, which were a nightmare to "pair" to My TV, and you just can't wear them with 3D glasses!!!

    I brought these headphones on Jun 16, 2017 and was crazy excited they sounded great super light and were as comfortable as the wired i i brought so i was stoked I like to ride my downhill bike around town to exercise so i was super happy great tunes great exercise what could go wrong so after a fun day of riding around i get home charged the headphones and prepare for tome on the 17th i go to take care i business which only took about an hour or a little more sound 1 hour go by the headphones get super hot turn off and wouldn't turn back on after that i lost hope cause of some bad reviews and sure enough they were right the headphones were trash didnt abuse or miss use them and after a simple 2 maybe 3 hour of use they died so i took them back to BestBuy and got the Sony - XB50BS Extra Bass Sports Wireless In-Ear Headphones - Black which aren't as loud but are good battery is just as great as the Skullcandy but haven't giving me issues so far at all the only thing about the Sony headphones are you have to use the correct ear tip thingy's are they become super uncomfortable but when you use the correct set up they don't fall out and are a dream my dream are shaped weird so I'm super picky and being a guy i normally have to buy lady headphones as they are more comfortable i wouldn't recommend buy these without the 2year warranty you want to waste your money.

    Great Bluetooth in ear for the gym

    Picked this up a little over a month ago and have been using it everyday since. Was heading to the gym when my over ear bluetooth headphones band cracked and Best buy happened to be next door to my gym. After going back and forth between those in the same price range I ended up with these skullcandy in ear bluetooth earphones. Pros Solid music playback Battery life ( I get about 7.5 hours per day with regular random usage plus few hours at the gym) Lightweight (it's like a necklace so I tend to forget I'm wearing it) Cons Bluetooth does lose signal randomly from time to time. Phone is only in my pocket and I have a LG v30 so I'm confident it's not my phone. Microphone per those I've spoke with said I sound distant and sometimes it sounds muffled. Other times its clear. So not sure what's going on. Overall I'd recommend for gym usage and casual wear around for commuting or something along those lines. If you need to make lots of calls I wouldn't recommend as that feature seems inconsistent. Bass is also so so. Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Overdelivered

    So I ended up buying these to replace my Shadows that got broken. I was set to buy the Shadows but was looking for something slightly less expensive all the while hoping I wouldn’t sacrifice quality. I was expecting a decent pair of earbuds but they over delivered: so the Pros.. Sound Quality is great. No overbearing high end or tinny sounds the bass came through and also wasn’t overpowering. Great warm mix. FIt.. the larger buds didn’t feel right. They were too big and the sound felt filtered. Once I changed to the smaller buds 100 percent difference. Now .. volume. I am 70 percent dear in both ears. Most headphones and earbuds are far too low for me to get any significant use out of. The volume on these are impressive! I would have to say the only thing I would’ve changed is that the back neck piece connecting the buds is a hard plastic and hugs your neck and is a little awkward and uncomfortable at first. I think they would’ve benefited more by using a rubber style flex band. Overall on a score of 5. These would be a solid 4.7 only because of the neck band otherwise they’d be a 5.
