    These things suck shit through a straw. Somehow I ended up with two of these shit hats, one of them is completely broken and the other one is held together with scotch tape. After wearing them for 20 minutes my ears start to hurt because the cups are too small and are being squished against my skull. And the sound, its awful. Like playing music from a cell phone in a bucket with a little extra base.

    Conclusion, its shit. Don't buy them.

    • comfort, fragile, sound, makes you look like a douche

    These were my first pair of "good" headphones, and I thought it was my fault when the band snapped after a couple months. I snipped the cord off and mailed it in, was sent a new pair. Same thing happened. I went through 12 pairs of Hesh before trying something else. I thought this was as good as it got. Then I got a pair of AUVIO Concert Class headphones. Skullcandy is the scum of the headphone industry, they sell cheap, shoddy goods for high prices because they look like toys. Do not buy these headphones unless you want to buy a new pair every two months and suffer through the grating audio quality for a pretty headset. Awful headphones, will never another Skullcandy product for as long as I live.

  • SkullCandy Hesh HeadPhones

    How is the sound quality? and when im wearing them will i hear anything else besides my music? does it come with a exetention cord?

    Answered by Tessor 2010-12-12:

    The sound quality is decent for Hesh, and a good deal better than what you'll find with other headphones that cost as much as these. I've never seen a Hesh that doesn't come without an extension cord. See this detailed review for more information about Hesh:

  • How good is the sound isolation with the hesh headphones

    Answered by Morningstar 2009-12-03:

    If you don't mind the tightness of them, which they are VERY tight on your head, which can be either very comfortable or VERY painful. The Sound Isolation is the main focus of the Hesh Models, they are meant to be worn while snowboarding generally. They also have Virtual Surround embedded in them in the newest model, which Skullcandy doesn't advertise but believe me it is completely worth it. Don't buy used because they'll break. Lifetime Warranty is a plus though so you never have to worry. Hope I

    the sound isolation with the hesh is pretty good. if you put them on, then wait before you start your music, most low-decibel noises will be blocked out. and when you start your music, just about every noise disappears, and you can enjoy your music to the

  • What is better? The GI, TI, or Hesh?

    My first pair of skullcandys just broke after a year of owning them party because of taking em on and off soo much. im 15 and as reckless and we teens are i managed to keep mine intact. Im interested in buying another one but idk if theres another over headphone that is better? personally, the hesh are amazing in every aspect.. i need other opinions though in what to buy.

    Hesh: -Tight on head -50mm Drivers (Very Loud) -Mid to High Frequencies are very responsive -Lacking in Bass Compared to the GI's GI's: -Solid Bass Response -Solid Midrange but Highs aren't as crisp as TI's or Hesh -They are huge on your head and comfortable TI's: -Mid's and High's have good response -40mm Drivers (Generally Loud even at low volume) -Bass is somehow drowned out by the treble (When the TI's are set, at the factory, they will prefer a high frequency signal over a low or mid, so these will sound crisp and clear but if you want to hear loud bass you'll have to raise the volume very high, but the high notes will get crisper, which is painful) Overall you won't see any difference between the headphones besides the style and fit. Don't ever listen to Audiophiles that will complain that these 25 to 60 more
