Great Little set of Headphones

Picked these up the other day for the gym. No longer do I have sloppy cables tangling up my workout area. They've done good work with the design because they do not fall out of my ears (like most other headphones do) and they seem to have ideal weight distribution. Sound quality is great, they are a little bass heavy, but you can always EQ it down. Hope this helps!

Poor sound quality

I find the sound quality for playing music very poor - like a transistor radio. They are ok for audio books or podcasts. I would return them if it was allowed but Best Buy does not allow returns on open box headphones

Poor sound quality for music

I wanted to write this review so people would know about the poor sound quality before wasting their money. These are not returnable at Best Buy. I was very disappointed in the audio quality. They are ok for audio books or Podcasts (the spoken word) but they are about as good as a transistor radio for music. Another problem I found is I get a lot of wind noise when I am outside - even if it is a little breezy. I don't jog with them but I would imagine that would be worse. A waste of money for me. I don't even use them - I prefer the white corded iphone headset for music. I gave it two stars because the bluetooth features do work as advertised - just has poor audio quality

Won't stay paired, buttons unreliable

When they work, which unfortunately, is not all that often, they're very nice, and very comfortable, and the noise cancellation really is good. But they're difficult to pair, won't stay paired, and the buttons either stick occasionally, or sometimes simply don't work at all. They do make nice, if expensive, earplugs.

Took them back

I read reviews on the Best Buy site. Most said they liked them so I bought the earbuds. I have nothing but trouble with them since I bought them five days ago. The music cuts out all the time. It doesn't matter if I'm sitting still or walking. The music cuts out. The distance between myself and the music source isn't an issue because the music source is right beside me. I am disappointed in this product. It's going back today.

Difficult to pair and connect other devices

The sound quality is okay to me. However, to connect this earphone to other devices is kind of headache. I tested it on iOS devices and Windows devices; most time, I have to connect it manually even they were paired. It was very hard to pair the earphone to my Surface which took me long time and lots of tries. Surface could not discover the earphone. In addition, the name of the earphone is weird; it is called "Method Wireless". Because I have opened the box, I cannot return it back to BestBuy, have to keep it. By the way, to pair my Surface to my Bose QuietComfort just bought from BestBuy was much easier.

Great first wireless buds!!

These are fantastic. Affordable, baddy, decently sound isolating (tested on a couple plane rides) and very easy to use. Anybody who can't figure them out shouldn't use Bluetooth technology... and anyone claiming they're garbage is too stupid to figure out the simplicity behind them. Definitely recommend.

Method wireless earbuds

Great earphones! Better than the much higher priced ones. Charge lasts at least 9 hours. Sound quality and bass is excellent. 30 ft range without dropping signal good too. Shipping from Best Buy was only 2 days. Sync can be a bit tricky, but once it's done then you're good to go. I can definitely test that they are water resistant. PS I bought 5 for Christmas and all the kids love them including myself

Just Okay

Got these as a gift, and thought they were pretty good for the first little bit. After a few days, making sure they were connected got annoying, compared to wired ones, which are just plug and go. Also, while watching videos, they seemed to cut in and out very often while I had my phone in my hand. Pretty good quality and quite durable, but are not as simple and reliable as wired ones. Wouldn't recommend them.

Skullcandy Wireless In Ear Headphones

Purchased these today, fit well in ear, easy to pair BUT hate the sound. Sound is not clear or crisp, I'll be returning them tomorrow.

  • from Calgary, AB

Fantastic option if you dont wanna break the bank

The sound is very good for the price. I will definitely buy it again. The highs and low and mid range can be further emphasized if you have a good capable mobile device that have such feature. I was really surprised with the sound. Good option.
