Excerpt: The best thing they have going for them is their level of isolation. For listening anywhere with a significant amount of background noise, the sealed fit is superior. The 50/50s come with three sizes of silicone tips, and the smalls provided a snug and comfortable fit even for my small ear canals. The construction is sturdier than most in this range, as well.
Pros: Good bass response when you get the seal correct. Wrapped cable makes for easy storing and helps cut down on cable noise.
Cons: The skull detailing is the brand’s signature flourish, but man, it made me feel like 13-year old emo skater kid. Persistent static drone is irritating.
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: The fact that Skullcandy describes its products as the "sickest" headphones around should give you some idea of the target audience. The brand offers a huge range of headphones and earphones with the emphasis firmly on the cool aesthetics. But, is it a case of style over substance? We took a look at a set of the maker's latest in-earphones to find out.
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.
Excerpt: Skullcandy 's website might lead you to believe it’s preoccupied with courting the ‘yoof’ demographic, but in practice these 50/50 in-ears will appeal to anyone in the market for a well-made, exciting-sounding and comfortable pair of ’phones.
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.
