Skullcandy Lowrider Headphones Powder Blue, One Size

Posted

Pros: Packaging

Cons: Sound quality, build quality, overall design

These headphones were not designed very well imo. There is a noticable seal problem. The headband has zero pressure and the earcups swivel in the wrong direction. When you press on the earcups for seal, the sound gets much better.

 

As a result, the sound is suprisingly bass light for a skullcandy. The mids are Ok in this price range and the soundstage is pretty good. The highs are terrible though. Very plasticy, peaky.  

 

Compared to other department store headphones, like Sony, JVC, AIWA, KOSS etc.... These sound about the same level as a AIWA but not a KOSS or Sony. I think the packaging, looks, and comfort take too much away from the potential sound. 

 

Mine are modded and sound worlds better than stock. If you own a par, atleast check out my mod thread: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/472522/skullcandy-lowrider-mod

 

If you are looking for WalMart headphones, look elsewhere at Sony, Koss, JVC. These are very mediocre unmodded, even for only $20.

Skullcandy Lowrider Headphones Powder Blue, One Size
Description:

Unfold the Skullcandy Lowriders, and blow your own mind with the full-sized sound coming from these compact headphones. Skullcandy made the Lowrider Headphones for those of us who don't always have space for a massive set of reference phones, but who still want to rock out when we're sitting at our desks, catching a plane to AK, or dropping jaws in the terrain park. What's that? Terrain park?!? Yeah, buddy, we ride until late April out here. And when the snow finally melts, holler at the empty pools, trails, and woodwork cause we'll be sessioning and cranking our Lowriders til next season starts.Product FeaturesMaterial: Plastic, faux leatherDriver: 40mm NeodymiumInput Connection: 3.5mm gold-plated miniplug Cord Length: 47in (120cm)Weight: Recommended Use: Portable listening, travelManufacturer Warranty: Lifetime Country of Origin: United States
