painful on ear after 30-40mins

its hard to bear on ears after long time

  • from Kamloops, BC

Not over the ear. Painful to wear.

This headphone is listed as over the ear. My ears must be bigger than average but you be the judge of that. The ear opening of the headset is 1 3/4". For those whose ears are not mice sized you might experience a rather unpleasant and painful sensation within the hour that builds up to a rather torturous stinging and eventually you will rip the thing from your head as it becomes intolerable. Fair enough this is probably the case for all on-the-ear headphones except that this one is advertised as over the ear. I could talk about the nice build quality but whats the point if you can't stand wearing them. So, if you happened to know that you can't handle on-the-ear phones then be warned. Don't get this one as it will not lead to a happy user experience. BestBuy warned me on checkout that once used they are no longer refundable. I appreciate the heads up but wish I did not buy the thing. The two stars are for 1) the build quality and 2) the sound quality.

Skullcandy hesh 2 wireless over ear

This is a good product for the price it doesn't go crazy loud and have a lot of base but it does its job. They are comfortable and when someone calls it is pretty clear.

  • from Markham, ON

Great Product

In the beginning, I had some difficulties to connect this headphone with my desktop, which was quite frustrating. It turned out that was because the driver of my Bluetooth adapter was out-of-date. After updating the driver, everything was going perfectly. Battery life is very impressive. One thing is that my ears are not comfortable if I wear this headphone more than 1 hr. Over all it's a great product.

  • from Burnaby, BC

Provides good sound isolation

Have found these headphones do a reasonably good job of isolating outside noise (I use in a cubicle to block out neighbours and external noise), especially if I am listening to music. Sound quality is good, although they were recently cutting in and out, and I'm not sure whether that was due to a dying battery or a dying battery on the Bluetooth broadcaster I'm using. I have an average sized head for a female, but find after longer uses my ears and head tend to ache. The on/off button is a bit clumsy, as I can't always see when the light changes colour due to my finger covering it. A harder carrying case would be better suited, as I tend to bring these to and from work on a regular basis.

  • from Montreal, QC

Great wireless headphones

I've tried 3 other brands that were more expensive for wireless headphones. And none of them lasted more than a few months. These skull candy wireless hesh kick ass. I use them to listen to music while lifting weights or kickboxing. No problems with all the sweat. And the batteries lasts forever. Great price. The only downside is that they could be just a bit louder. But the max volume is honestly already good enough. Great price get it while you can

  • from Gatineau, QC

Good quality, good sound, fair price

Just bought these a few days ago, so I can't comment on long term. I can say though that pairing to my phone was real easy. Sound quality is quite good. It's got deep bass, good balance of highs and mids. Might not be as powerful or as clear as Bose headphones, but it's definitely worth what I paid for (I got them on sale). Even at regular price, I'd say it's a fair price for the value. They're very comfortable and they don't squeeze your head and ears. Pretty good on outside noise reduction. I like them so far.

  • from Calgary, AB

Good headphones

Overall, this is a good set of headphones. Pros: the sound quality is good, blocks out office noise Cons: could be just my head, but the headphones tend to pinch my ears after 30 minutes or so of use
