Skullcandy Hesh 2.0 review

 
3.0
Pros: Vocal clarity, Durable
Cons: Cheap design, Bass suffers, Tight on the ears
Verdict: The Skullcandy Hesh 2 headphones are essentially an update to an older version, not just visually but also under the hood. It would be fair to say that the originals took a certain amount of flak for marring original design with sound quality that may not have lived up to the hype.

Skullcandy Hesh 2

 
4.0
Pros: Distortion-free, clear audio performance with solid bass response. Inline remote and microphone for mobile phones.
Cons: Fit is a bit awkward. Can sound brittle on instrumental and classical music
Verdict: Skullcandy headphones keep surprising me. The lineup has definitely kept its sporty, skater-esque stylings, but the internals seem to be improving. The recent Skullcandy Navigator is a solid, bass-friendly budget option, and the Hesh 2, starting at $69.95 (direct) for models with the inline remote,...

1.1
Verdict: Despite their snazzy looks and general appeal to those youngins who think appearances matter more than performance, we're forced to play the part of grumpy old geezers and pooh-pooh these headphones. They have very poor audio performance, even for the low price.

Skullcandy Hesh 2 – Paul Frank Scholastic Julious Headphones Review

Pros: Detachable Cable, Fun Design, Comfortable/Cushioned, Balanced Audio, Affordable
Cons: Not Collapsible, Some Music Genres Can Sound Empty, Leather Untucked from Headband, No Right-Ear/Left-Ear Indicator
Verdict: Skullcandy has always been very keen on unique design. That's why we were surprised, and impressed, that they invested in designer Paul Frank's creativity to design their most ...

Alright. Can use some work.

 
3.0
Pros: Bass is good, sound is nice and loud (thanks to 50mm drivers), and they have a nice cool look to them
Cons: Headband seems very fragile and after a while, the headphones start to feel really uncomfortable
Verdict: For the price of near 70 bucks, this isn't a bad buy, but it can use some work. Sound is good, bass is even, and it looks very nice. However, the few things that bug me are just the headband and how uncomfortable it feels on my head after a good half hour.

Skullcandy's Pimped Out Hesh Headphones

Verdict: If those tiny iPod earbuds just don't provide a look and a sound worthy of a true audio pimp like yourself, it might be time to step up to the Hesh Headphone Series from Skullcandy.

Skullcandy Hesh Over-ear Headphone

Verdict: While there's a large segment of the population buying headphones for the aesthetics nowadays, many of the low-cost/high-fashion options are really quite terrible when it comes to the audio part of the equation.

Null

Verdict: The value price is the lowest I know you can buy headphones with twice the quality for half the price. My headphone did not last one week!

Damaged Product

 
5.0
Verdict: Looking at other reviews people appear to be having no problems with this headset, so I'll assume what has happened to me is one of those rare circumstances. Sadly the headset doesn't work at all and plays no music, the plugin for the audio jack also appears to have been scratched open

Skullcandy Hesh2 Wireless headphones

 
5.0
Verdict: These headphones are not the Crushers but they work very well. If you want a decent set of wireless headphones they are good. Have decent bass and a little muffled treble but over all great for the price. I use the Crushers as my comparison and compared to the crushers they are sub par.

Good but late

 
5.0
Pros: great sound quality for the price and really nice base and doesn't lose sound quality when you turn it up all the way or the bass but these headphones are definitely made for techno dubstep stuff like that i mean you can listen to other songs but the treble is noticeable but the bass sorta stands on...
Cons: took them 1 year to ship i ordered these head phones with my computer and they ended up late so i canceled the order and we got are money back and i ordered some denon headphones instead they show up at my house a year later..
Verdict: i got the headphones for free :D so thats a plus

Skullcandy Hesh - Good!

 
5.0
Verdict: A lot of people have written long winded reviews about these... so i'll be extremely brief. Went to (big box store) to try out headphones. First priority was comfort, second was blocking out external noise.

"Look Good, Sound OK"

 
4.0
Pros: Look good, well priced
Cons: If you want better quality you have to spend more than this
Verdict: I bought these headphones for my wife about a year ago as part of her birthday present. We had both been using in ear headphones until then but my wife often complained that she really didn't like the level of sound leakage (amount other people can hear your music when you have headphones on).

5.0
Pros: Detatchable cable, balanced sound
Cons: Driver grattle. Surprisingly, only a problem with certain metal genres
Verdict: Mild u-shape. Rather than going the XB500 route, it goes more for sub-bass extension, then mellows out in the higher bass/lower mids, roll offs where appropriate to keep the sound balanced, and smooth. Another roll off in the lower treble. Just a bit of sparkle.

good headphone's

 
4.0
Verdict: These headphones are good all rounders with good sound quality and average bass which is good as sometimes bass overpowers music. These also fit realy well, i have small ears but they stick out and it can be hard to find headphones that fit, but these are a great fit and the fit snugley.

1.0
Pros: Pretty
Cons: Overpriced, Incredibly Flimsy, Patheitic Bass
Verdict: These were my first pair of "good" headphones, and I thought it was my fault when the band snapped after a couple months. I snipped the cord off and mailed it in, was sent a new pair. Same thing happened. I went through 12 pairs of Hesh before trying something else.

Great sound quality

 
5.0
Verdict: I think these headphones are really stylish and have a great sound quality. I know everyone says beats headphones are better but they sound exactly the same and are 100 more expensive, you are only paying for the name of the beats headphones.

Skullcandy Hesh Headphone

 
3.0
Verdict: These are an average pair of over-ear headphones made by Skullcandy. They retail for around $50, but you can find them on Amazon for around $30-35. I've owned a few pairs and a lot of my friends have them so i thought I'd put in my two cents about them.

AMAZING HEADSET!!!

 
4.0
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Cons: Cord Too Short, SHORT ADAPTER
Verdict: These headphones are really great for the price... I have had Sennheiser and $80 Sony headphones that didn't measure up to this Skullcandy product!!! I like them for bass heavy music like rock or reggae, hip-hop and some jazz. They're quite comfortable even though the cups are large...
