Summary: I was lucky enough to get these for basically half off, but unfortunately, you get what you pay for. I was looking for a decent pair of headphones with good mids and not too much bass bias, with a detachable cord so its longevity is guaranteed. Had a friend let me test them out and was convinced they were a good buy, however he let me listen to a FLAC file, which is uncompressed, and would have to be a pretty terrible pair of headphones for it to sound bad. My mistake.
Summary: Idk if I bought a bad pair but when i tried them they had no bass at all and i was playing songs that usual would rattle things. Idk if i wanna try and buy them again or what but i was disappointed and I'm a Skullcandy fan. I have a pair of 50/50 and I love them. Those are the only ones I use and they never failed me.
Excerpt: I bought these thinking they'd be comfortable but unfortunately, they weren't. They just bothered my ears and really didn't use them at all. The bud version of Skullcandy is awesome and those continue to be my favorites.
Skullcandy WB Hesh Headphones: good for the 2 weeks they last
9 September 2012
Excerpt: First off, I have to say that the design on the headphones look amazing. It truly looks like Ed Hardy designs. It's pretty cool. The fit is really comfortable. Some headphones that size will hurt your ears, but as a world of warcraft player, we all know that 1 hour at the computer isn't enough. I noticed no pain or discomfort after using the headphones for a few hours.The sound is very crisp, clear.
Excerpt: Though I like the skullcandy brand, their merchandise is usually just appealing to the eye. I recently bough a pair of these headphones and I have a few things to say about it. The headphones themselves are quite comfortable with the cushioned ears and the band connector is also slightly cushioned. However, when you wear them for long periods of time, your ears will start to hurt from the pressure exerted by the headphones themselves.
Excerpt: I would quite easily say that these headphones are some of the worst I have used. I thought, hey these are more expensive and I have read good reviews about them, why not give them a shot? But I was soooooooooo wrong. It was a literal nightmare having them around my house. I tried them out a couple of times. The first time was bad but I thought I should keep trying them for a little while. After all, not every product in the world starts out great and continues to...
Summary: I bought a pair of these sweet babies from a local computer shop and I was the awesomest looking dude in the office for 6 months...
When I took them out of the case and put them on my head I felt instantly cheated. They were cheap and felt like children's toys. You know those $9.99 plastic headphone specials you find in sale bins at the local grocery store? These were exactly those but they looked sweet so that's worth something.
Summary: These are great. If you don't care about quality in sound or build.
I've had 2 pairs of these over the past 2 years. the first pair was replaced on warranty for the extenders for the ear cups coming off. The pair I'm stuck with for at least another week and a half have been taped together with electrical tape for the past 8 months. they break within just a few weeks.
The sound quality is ok if you're just looking for something to blast.
Summary: Note; I have Not purchased or owned these headphones.
The other day I walked into Ron Jons Surf shop & while browsing the floors came across the Skullcandy demo station. What was interesting of course was the fact you could demo it using your own mp3 player, so I did that exactly. While shuffling through tracks & listening I couldnt bear the sound quality. even for $40 cans, its not worth it.
