Excerpt: We tested two models from Skullcandy, the 50/50s and the Fix. These 50/50s , the cheaper of the two, are sort of half way between in-ear headphones and traditional earbuds, and they provide decent sound for a decent pricetag ($40). The 11mm drivers provide a richer audio experience than other buds under $50, but they’ve got other issues.
Summary: Despite finding its bass to be often overwhelming, I think the 50/50 is a nice headset for certain audiences. I know there are plenty of listeners out there, particularly those who listen to electronic music and hip-hop, and those who play games on their portable devices, who will love the bass, and I have no trouble recommending this model to them, especially given its price.
Excerpt: (1 items) Until recently I hadn’t paid much attention to Skullcandy’s headphones and headsets—the company’s focus on extreme sports, punk- and hip-hop-inspired aesthetics, and too-clever product names (case in point: “Smokin’ Buds”) suggested I might not be in the target audience. However, many of Skullcandy’s products—particularly its inexpensive "canalbud" models—have gotten good buzz from headphone geeks at HeadRoom (an online headphone dealer) and on the Head-Fi...
Pros: Provides lots of bass (if that's what you're looking for), Easy to fit in your ears
Cons: Microphone performance below average, Bass can be overwhelming
Conclusion: The Skullcandy 50/50 certainly look the part and the comfy design, complete with differently sized ear pieces for you to choose from is also a bonus. Although they block out a fair bit of noise, the overall audio is a tad disappointing considering the price tag, but the splendid bass certainly helps to sweeten the pill.
Pros: Cool design, comfortable, in-line remote, excellent bass, carry case
Conclusion: If you are a fervent music lover and want stylish looking headphones in a reasonable price to listen to your tunes with deep and clear sound, Skullcandy 50/50 earphones are worth for your investment.
Summary: Музыка звучит грубо и прямолинейно, она лишена утонченности; в песне Hate That I Love You нежный голос Рианны кажется неестественно резким. Стоит отметить сильный и мощный бас Skullcandy. Просто удивительно, как часто люди готовы мириться с дешевыми во всех смыслах комплектными наушниками. Ведь стоит потратить совсем немного - и вы получите чудесный звук... Эта модель вносит приятное цветовое разнообразие в наш обзор.
