Skullcandy has matured both in its designs as well as sound and build quality. We’re thrilled by the build, the materials and, ultimately, the sound quality. The metal headband is perfectly sprung and the ear pads generously padded so they fit firmly, but without creating the ‘ear cramp’ effect, and the brown suede headband is a classy touch. The sound far exceeded our expectations, putting it on par with the fabulous wireless Smokin’ Buds 2 on our list of headphone best buys.
WHAT’S MISSING? We are quite disappointed that they’re not a foldable design.
VERDICT Skullcandy’s wireless range continues to impress, and because some of the designs are less garish than before, they could now capture a much more discerning music lover. For us, this pair, at this price, is a very clear buy.
