Not worth the money

Bought these headphones after reading all the reviews. Like these people must have low standards for headphones cause these are crap! Sound quality is good but theyre so quite you can hear people talking around you. Very uncomfortable and heavy. Would not recommend.

  • from Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada

Great set of headphones.

Best set of Bluetooth headphones I have ever owned. No issues what so ever. Yes there is the range issue but for the price and the quality will not let a couple of walls stand in my way. Great product. I will only buy skullcandy.

  • from Port Coquitlam, BC

Not bad.

So I grabbed these for my laptop. Very pleasantly surprised. The sound is not bad, there is bass, just not pounding bass. The range is good, I can walk around my apartment and still hear the sounds, though going into a room further away does cause issues. Not happy with the mike on Windows 10, but it works with my phone fine. Quick set up and holds a charge very well.

  • from Hamilton, ON

Don't Buy this please ! Request !

I bought it and the headset was not even working perfectly. The sound crashs in between. The skull candy standard expectation was too terrible with this product ! Now I've requested for return and need by cash back ! I'm satisfied with this experience. This experience shocked me.

  • from sudbury

great headphones for the price

best headphones i have owned. The battery is the best it feels like i never charge them and they still go strong. kinda hurts the ears but only if you wear them for along time. i have had mine for about 3 years and they still sound brand new. I would recommend. especially for gym use

  • from Toronto

Don't Buy!

Overall poor quality headphones. Static at low volume, and at high volume (which isnt very loud at all) there is a rattling sound. No bass at all, wireless range is about 10 feet. Don't waste your money.

  • from Niagara Falls, ON

Great value!

Bought them as a Christmas gift for my son. He was thrilled. The soft ear pieces and the battery life was great..

  • from Sydney, NS

Not as Advertised

I purchased these online and when they arrived I opened the box to find that they are ON-EAR not OVER-EAR headphones. On-ear always hurt my ears after a short while. I did not try the headphones so I can not comment on the sound quality or Bluetooth experience. Buyer beware.

  • from Moncton, NB

Good Headphones

I use all my head phones to workout with. I have an expensive Home Theatre. I never sit down and use headphones to listen to music. So....these headphones are not Beats (BASS)! These headphones are great for what I use them for, and I am pleased with them. Bluetooth pairing was easy and simple. Buy them when they are on sale, so you'll be happy with your purchase. A kid on skateboard will be happy. Your child/nephew/niece will be happy with them. So....these are not Beats! Not a fair comparison!

The overall rating speaks for itself...

There are a lot of over-ear, Bluetooth headphones in this price range. So many, in fact, that choosing the best product for the money is almost impossible. I read so many reviews of all the similar products that they all started to sound the same. So I decided to buy my headphones based solely on the rating number. At the time, the Hesh 2 was the highest rating at 4.5/5 stars and with the most positive reviews by far. So I took a chance and bought them. I use the Hesh 2 headphones every day. I charge them each night so I don't know how long the battery lasts. I wear them to the gym, while mowing the lawn, in my workshop, and just about anywhere else I want to listen to music. The sound isolation is good even though I can still hear the lawnmower at times. They are comfortable around my big head and for hours at a time. The sound quality is every bit as good as my higher-priced Bose Soundtrues. I haven't had any difficulties pairing the Bluetooth with my iPod or phone and haven't had any signal drops or interruptions so far. The Hesh 2 headphones look cool, sound great and are well worth the money.

Good wireless headset on a budget

I got tired of snagging my headphone cord on everything, so I made the switch to the Skullcandy Hesh 2. The first thing I noticed is that the sound quality is not as good as it was with wired headphones - but that's probably true of all bluetooth headphones. Otherwise, they fit well on my head and are comfortable for long periods of time. The battery life is very impressive; I think they're supposed to give you 15 hours on a charge but I've gotten about double that during the first couple months. Definitely great value for your money.

Great Headphones

After getting new piercings I am unable to use in-ear headphones and had to be careful with an over-ear headphone that could potentially irritate them. These headphones cup my ears comfortably without irritation! Setup was very fast, I was listening to my iPhone music within a minute of opening the box. The sound is very crisp - I did have some interference when wondering through my apartment but I did have several walls in between my headphones and my iPhone and the interference was very minor. I do like the ability to change songs using the volume buttons but it can cause minor difficulties because if you don't hold it correctly you end up turning your volume up or down. It would be nice to have the ability to pause/play as well. I tried using the microphone feature to take calls from my phone but they had difficulty hearing me properly - microphone feels in an awkward position to pick up speaking. I would not purchase these if you rely on the ability to use the microphone, more of just a bonus. It holds a good charge, I've listened to quite a bit of music and still don't need to charge it yet. Charging port seems in a good position to be able to charge while still using.

Great quality and comfort for the money

  • from Ottawa, ON

not good as i expected

I'm data entry operator, sitting there keying for 7 hours, this headphone is really not comfortable , its really hurt my ears for listening for the first two hours, and beside this headphone doesn't has fast forward function.. i will return this item for sure...not good as the philip headphone..

  • from Ajax, ON


Great value for the money. Yes my ears get sweaty after awhile, they are over the ear headphones afterall... but can't beat the sound quality versus in ear styles so I'll sacrifice. Sound is great and not all the uncomfortable. Charging is easy and in no way is it in an "akward" spot. Yes is doesn't come with an ac plug in for the usb cable.. but seriously who doesn't have half a dozen of them laying around anyways. Recommend these headphones, best of both worlds... bluetooth and aux cable.

  • from Winnipeg, MB


I'm not sure what some people are referring to when talking about the headphones losing quality when on Bluetooth and not plugged in. These things had fantastic sound quality, plugged in or not. Maybe they were using them where they had a lot of interference. Left my music playing on my phone and left it in the house to go out to my truck on the street. Never lost sound quality. Great bass, mid range and high range. They do move around a little when your exercising, but only if you're really moving around. I wouldn't really diminish their value based on that because they are a little bulkier than some of the other headphones but for their price they are a fantastic buy. Definitely recommend these to others. Great look as well.

Amazing Bang for buck

I got a gift card from my wife for valentines day to BB. Decided I wanted an on ear or over the ear pair of headphones but didn't want to pay a ton or over pay. I tried almost every pair of display headphones in the store and wasn't even considering Skullcandy. As soon as I put these on my head the comfort was incredible compared to most of the others. When I pushed the demo button for sound I blown away with the clarity of them combined with the comfort. When I looked down and seen they were on sale for [price] bucks..........SOLD. I wanted a pair of wireless cans with a cable and these had both. They look cool without the flashiness of some others. I've had them for 5 days and couldn't be happier. They are very flexible sound great and feel like pillows on your ears. The battery life is outstanding and you can just plug them in as well. Highly recommend these over beats or bose that cost 3 TIMES as much.

  • from Wolfville, NS

Amazing Headset

The price may stop people from buying them but these are amazing. The sound quality is excellent, and the foam padding is good, but does hurt after a few hours of usage. I would recommend them fully. They are compatible with both laptops and phones.

  • from Gatineau, QC

nice sound,zero comfort

The sound is great, but I can't wear them for more than 5 minutes at a time, the rigid plastic is very painful.

  • from Vaughan, ON

Excellent Quality

We purchased these and have been extremely happy with the quality / sounds. Great Value for the Cost - and very easy to set up. Best part - we don't have to listen to the kid's music in the car anymore!

  • from Ottawa, ON

Worth the purchase

Great product, havent ran out of battery yet. Lots of bass, great sound. Was a Christmas gift for my daughter She loves it.

Great headphones

I had these headphones for a month, they are really comfortable and the sound quality is great. It takes a few mins to charge for a full battery and the battery life lasts very long. Perfect for training, no hassle with any wires.

  • from Winnipeg, MB


IT was skillcandys best design

  • from Windsor , on

Great headphones!!!!

Purchased the skull candy hesh 2 a month and a half ago, i use them 8 hours a day 6 days a week, they are awesome! The battery life is amazing and great sound quality.

  • from Barrie, ON

Not working in right side on bluetooth

Just bought it hours ago and right side on bluetooth has stop working. Works fine on aux cable though. It's going back, never buying Skullcandy again!

  • from Scarborough, ON

Not bad, honestly

These are great wireless headphones. They are sturdy, but I don't they use a lot of metal, it's just the rubber. The performance is awesome. While wireless, they are great, but i honestly suggest using a wire, because the sound quality is 2x better. (the price) is not bad for these things that can compete with sinheiser.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great bluetooth headset!

My first integrated bluetooth headset. It is a typical skullcandy headset, great sound, lots of bass, comfortable, very easy to pair with my ipad, making phone calls. Only down side is a bit warm after wearing for a while, feel like the ears are not able to breath.

  • from vancouver bc

battery pack bad

Four weeks old and recharge circuit fails. Only help is at Skullcandy direct.

  • from Sarnia, ON

Alright for the Money

Nice they can be listened to if they need charge with cord provided. Bluetooth distance does not work well with my iphone & ipad cuts out. Wish volume could be loader. I don't find them to be Sound Isolating. Charging port in an awkward spot, worry about breaking them when plugging in to charge.

  • from Maine

Finally, the candy sounds to sweeten my skull

Excellent headphones! Perfect feel, comfort, and sound. Easy to set up and well worth the money.

  • from Barrie, ON

very happy

bought this because a more expencive pair was out of stock.... boy am I happy i did.... battery life is better than i thought.... sounds great

  • from Ottawa

Great value

Pleasantly surprised at the performance with flexibility of corded or Bluetooth ! Battery is amazing. For the size they are relatively light but a little bulky. Plug for recharge is well hidden... Took me a while to find it good/bad thing !

  • from Edmonton, AB

Solid device for the price

The Skullcandy Hesh 2 wireless headphones might not have the premium feel of the Bose, Beats, or Sennheiser brands, but the headphones are by no means a bad purchase. The Hesh 2's are fairly comfortable (though they do not have padding on the headbar), bass and midtones are good, battery life is great, controls are easy to access, and Bluetooth connection holds strong well. If I have any complaints about the device, it would be that the charging port is placed in an unfit position, behind the left earphone, making it a bit of a pain to charge. Nothing major, just inconvenient. The LED indicator too is a nuisance, flashing every 5 seconds when the device is on and Bluetooth connected (not applicable if you are using the Hesh 2's via direct audio input cord, which is also included). The light is fairly bright and can be seen out of the corner of the right eye, somewhat bothersome visually when playing movies or listening to music in low-light conditions or with glasses. I have personally placed electical tape over top the light to dull the flashing. If I had to sum up the headphones in one word, I'd use the word 'balance'. Performance and specs are not out of this world, but in contrast, the Hesh 2's get away from some of the glaring problems its competition puts on consumers, including over-use of bass, fragility and heft price. FYou can't go wrong with the Skullcandy Hesh 2 wireless headphones.

Pleasant Surprise

Always thought Skull Candy was hokey and a bunch of garbage but this boxing day I was pleasantly surprised and its' my first pair and if things go well I will be a SkullCandy advocate. Sound is decent but I still find if I want loud I have to go with In ear but it does the job and this is for the iphone. Pairing is easy and it did not take long to charge. PROS: Lifetime warranty. After I bought these I found out they had a limited lifetime warranty which basically means if there is a product defect you will get a coupon to buy something from their store and if you break it they will give you 50% towards the purchase of a new pair - We'll see how long that lasts :) Bluetooth Controls: They are on the right side of the pair and you can control volume, pause and track selection and there is a detachable cable with controls as well if you run out of juice. Comfort: They fit comfortably but a bit bulky. Contents: You get a USB cable, aux cable and a bag to protect your stuff. CONS: The USB charging port is tucked in behind the ear piece on the top of it which is kind of awkward and not sure if you can charge and listen Sweaty: After a while your ears get warm and sweaty but they make great ear muffs. Material: The headphones look really cool and are great now but the soft rubber like material can pick up greasy fingerprints easily. This was a pleasant surprise and glad I bought them.

Not bad for the Price

I purchased these headphones yesterday so my review is based on out of box usage. THE GOOD: Wireless function was as advertised (no more almost choking myself while lifting YAY!!!!!!!). THE BAD: the charger is in the most inconvenient spot (embedded between the headphone and set). My auxiliary wire was defective at unboxing (BOOOO!!!). Needless to say I will be exchanging these, if the auxiliary cord had functioned I would have given a better performance score.
