Great headphones for sure

For me the main thing was the metal headband that's why i bought them, the bonus was solid low ends and the easy to use wireless pairing. It is nice to have a solid set of headphones this i hope will be my last pair i buy for a longtime. i went through many sets that just broke on the cheap plastic headband others use. And they are very comfortable.

Best pair of bluetooth for street and calls, music and commuting

I love this headphones I bought for 80CAD at bestbuy: - Lightweight - Comfortable. Because I prefer less pressure I had to bend the metal band a tad - mind you it does not bend easy, but they were good for sports and running out of the box. - Friendly buttons - Awesome voices for songs - Super easy pairing and - Excellent range through concrete floors too ! OK Cons: - No noise cancelling (I have a BTNC 4.50 for the plane but I still like this one more) - For this price, I can't see more downsides : you?

Great phones at a decent price

Liked the feel of these phones in the store display. No pressure points and the band followed the contour of my head really well. The pair I purchased were almost as good but a little stiffer which I expect to change as I use them. The sound is very much to my liking which is a nice balance between clarity and bass. They handle good levels of voice and music with no noticeable distortion even at Hi levels I wouldn't normally use.The ear cushions are very soft and don't seem to interfere with eyeglass frames or press against my temples. The headband seems to be made of steel so I don't expect them to break or weaken like some plastic ones. The earpieces adjust smoothly with making a loud ratcheting noise (in your ears) like some plastic ones do. Nice feature is the non BT wired option which is as easy as plugging in the cordset. The BT works excellent with good range and minimum dropout. As soon as you come back in range the BT hooks up right away. BT also hooks up as soon as you turn them on. I can't speak to the remote ctrl functions or the mic function as I have not tried them with a smartphone and probably won't but it's there if I need it. It's almost impossible to find a set of BT phones that don't have this feature. The owners manual is written in numerous languages but could be a bit more descriptive with larger text, however most headphones seem to share common features and functions. I'm thinking of getting another pair to have on hand when these wear out...I like them that much.

Wonderful headphone

I've tried a bunch other headphones (like the Sony 220) and these headphones provided a great combination of comfort and sound for its price. I'm not an audiophile, but for the price, the tone is rich and clear. Pairing was very easy, and I've head them for about a month and the battery appears to be working well. The headband is comfortable, and despite my glasses, the headphones do not push in too much but still stays on very well. One downside is that the headphone do get a bit warm, as the cups press against the ears. It is not any different than the Bose active noise cancellation headphones that I own as well. Given that the SkullCandy do isolate sound well (albeit passive vs active), I can certainly handle that.

In love with these headphones

I wear headphones all the time — when I'm working (I'm in a music-related field so am constantly listing to radio and music), when I'm doing chores, when I'm exercising, when I'm talking on the phone, etc. I have bluetooth headsets for phone, and I have headphones for music, but I wanted to find a solid set of bluetooth headphones that worked well for everything. I tried several sets, and these are the definite winners! Lightweight, exceptionally comfortable, and the sound is amazingly clear and balanced across the range. I read several pro reviews saying they were comparable in sound quality to much pricier headphones and they were absolutely right. Way better than the Sony ones I tried that were twice the price, but were so overloaded with bass that the rest of the range got steamrolled. Amazing value for the price, highly recommended.

Pretty good... but maybe not for the price

I bought this during Black Friday so I am pretty happy, but the sound could be a little more bassier in my opinion.
