Solid for the PricePackaging is on par for other skullcandy products I’ve purchased. I have been using their products for years, and these headphones are the best pair I own. They have some downsides, but nothing about these headphones stands out as an issue that would warrant a return or a bad review.Pros:Battery life is exactly as advertised. Even with the noise cancellation on and bluetooth connected, I’m still getting close to 20 hours of battery life on one full charge.Very comfortable! Ear cups are soft enough to wear for hours, but they have enough firmness to keep their shape. I have a smaller head, and these fit perfectly.For the average user, the sound quality is still pretty good.Cons:Noise cancelling when turned on by itself has a light static sound. I enjoy the white noise, so it doesn’t bother me personally. Just be warned.They also don’t block quite as much noise as I would like, but they’re still effective for smaller sounds that bother me like rustling papers, pen scratching, and my cat running across the house.They don’t connect with the skullcandy app. This is the biggest let down for these headphones. I’m hoping that the app will be updated to include them at some point.Overall, I really like them. For being less than $150, they’re definitely worth the purchase.
ANC works like a charm!Hard to find good ANC headphones that go over the ears for a decent price, so had to cave in for something a bit pricier. I was told Skullcandy is a great brand, so I made my purchase. Never thought I’d spend $100 for headphones, but so worth it! Love the colors, but let’s talk ANC. They work so well that I can’t even hear my husband game in the next room while I study. It’s a bit lighter than what I was expecting, but that’s a good thing. Who wants to be weighed down by headphones anyway? I’d say that the only downfall is for those with bigger ears. I have small ears so the ear piece just barely fits over my ears. If you have bigger ears it may be a little snug over your ears or possibly even on your ears. My husband tried them on and they fit on his ears, not over. Otherwise, it does what it’s supposed to and I haven’t had any issues with them thus far.
Worth the moneyGreat sound quality especially for someone who is picky about sound, I have a big head and these don’t squeeze and fit perfectly and are quite adjustable.Had no issues pairing it to my phone, I’ve had them for almost 2 weeks and only needed to charge once, and it charges very fast. The buttons don’t lag and work perfectly as well. The noise cancellation is great, it doesn’t block out everything alone but if you have music playing even at a very low volume you can’t hear a thing.Saw a few reviews say it doesn’t come with a bag when it does, along with a charging cord, and an aux chord for a wired option.
A real competitor to Bose QC45sI only use these headphones for the gym and wanted a improvement over the Bose qc45s lack of bass. These headphones feel nearly identical to the much more expensive bose with at least double the bass. They are just as light and sound the same pretty much. Super comfy and not as hot for the gym. The noise canceling is absolute garbage. It’s actually quieter with it off than it is on. The buttons are pretty bad as well. Everything is better on the bose except bass and price. For that reason I’m sticking with the skull candy.

Great headphones, very confortableWhen headphones focus on bass, usually they sound as if you were listening to music through a pillow, but these sound really great and clear. When you turn on the noise cancellation, it reduces a little of the bass boost, which may be good or bad depending on the music genre you are listening to.I gave 4 stars instead of 5 as the Amazon box was intact while the headphones box was smashed, meaning they didn’t care sending me some headphones that might’ve been damaged. Fortunately, that wasn’t the case.
Completely recommend themI have had mine for over a month. I use them for school and the gym. Charge lasts a long time and they are comfortable to wear. The noice canceling isn’t as great as I expected but there is a significant amount of difference when it is on compared to when it is off. I would completely recommend them if you are looking for comfort.

Buenos auriculares pero tampoco la maravillaPara su precio están bastante bien, la cancelación de ruido es muy buena, pero en la calidad del sonido flaquean un poco por lo menos en comparación con mis crusher wireless que aparte de tener más sonido poseen unos bajos impresionantes, además la calidad de los materiales tampoco son comparables, la mayoría es de plástico (bastante resistentes pero no abusar) que los hacen sentir al tacto como de juguete o baratos. Pero en general son bastante buenos en calidad-precio.

Great headphonesI bought these for my wife. She absolutely loves them and have been using them everyday for over a year now. She’s uses them while on the gym, while she’s at home doing gardening or cooking or walking the dogs. Battery life is quite good as well as the noise cancelling for the price tag.

Multi use all around solidOverall I am very pleased with these headphones. Sound quality, durability, battery all great. Two very minor complaints is the pads get hot and create some sweat when active while wearing. Also the collapsible feature is great but a tad too sensitive.

Can’t hear anything when wearing.If your goal is to cut out all noise, they are for you. I use them for workout purposes, but let me tell you. It cuts out ALL background noise (gym music, weights dropping, and dreaded workout screams). All in all, very happy with my purchase. The only thing I could find to improve, would be the length of the charger. The cord is not long enough to reach a counter or table from outlet ( this is frustrating to stack items to hold the headphones while charging). Otherwise, the noise canceling feature is 5 stars alone.
