Skullcandy S2TTBZ-BZ Titan Earbuds, (Black) Reviews

Skoobs

I like, but not very durable.

Posted

Pros: SQ

Cons: Durability

i loved the sound quality. good for everything. not bloated bass, but if you threw on some bass-heavy music they would thump. yet if the music was not bass-heavy it was not intrusive.    they look cool, and are made of a cool metal. iono what it is. get some complys for it.   the wire is going. one of the buds is crackling in and out when the sire moves.

Nice Buds

Posted

Pros: Well balanced, not easily tangled, nice carrying case

Cons: Bass is slightly lacking

I'm new here, please don't hate I got my Titans on sale at a Dick's Sporting Goods These were my second pair of Skullcandy buds (Inkd became my workout pair). Overall, I was impressed with them. they stood up to everything I/life threw at them (except for an accidental spin in the washing machine). They were great for monitoring live sound at my church and school, and (with a little EQ help) were great mobile earbuds. These are good headphones for the money They sound great (esp. with a little bass bump with a custom EQ) They are attractive, not gaudy, minimal, but sturdy After a minute or two of wear, I couldn't really tell they were in... After half an hour or so, I generally take them...

First set of IEM's I actually liked

Posted

Pros: Good sound quality, good looks, nice pouch, decent price

Cons: Somewhat fragile

I got these a few years ago. Eventually, the screen on the inside fell off.    I never had a problem with the cables.   The earbuds fit fine but they slip out of the ear after a while. I have noticed the slipping issue with every sey of IEM's I've owned. Must be me and my ears. I always have to readjust the IEM's.    When they are seated in my ear, the fit is fine, and the isolation is pretty good.   I always liked their sound quality. A little extra oomph on the bottom end and everything else had a nice balance to it.   I have 2 sets in 2 different colors but I don't wear IEM's anymore due to the slippage.   If you like...

For budget, not too shabby

Posted

Pros: Decent sound quality, good design, superb isolation (if proper fit is attained)

Cons: Design flaw reduces comfort, cable tangles easily, heavy, not much clarity

I bought these because my Philips O'Neill set had a fatal cable flaw after seeing them several times at my local TJ Maxx. Here's my review of them:    Design and Comfort   The Titans have a metal housing that is fairly durable, but also heavy. That is the first flaw of the housing: it has a tendency to not stay in the ear terribly well, cutting down on isolation. The second flaw is much, much worse from a comfort perspective: the housing is larger than the rubber tips provided, making it painful after just 30-40 minutes. Because the housing does not stay in the ear well, the edge of the housing, which is fairly sharp, rests on the ear in a very uncomfortable...

Skullcandy Titans

Posted

Pros: Great sound quality, pretty comfortable, exceptional noise isolation, great design

Cons: Not full noise isolation, can get uncomfortable after long listening sessions

I was always a Skullcandy fan once I bought their Ink'd ear buds for the first time a few years ago. After going through my second pair of Ink'd, I decided to upgrade to the Titans to see how they compare to ear buds I had in the past, and let me say, they sound GREAT for the $40 I paid for them.   BUILD QUALITY   Admittedly, I was a little skeptical of purchasing these ear buds since a friend of mine had gone through a few pair of these that would fall apart on their own. However, I took a chance, and bought them regardless. Currently, I am on my second pair since I accidentally washed my first pair, but as far as build quality goes, I have yet to find any problems...

Nice for the price

Posted

Pros: cost, Bass, Warranty,

Cons: Eartip size, highs

I was pleasently surprised at the sound quality of the Titans. I have always though Skullcandy was just utter garbage. There are plenty of Sony, JVC, models that sound much worse. The bass is loud with these. Not very accurate, but it's booming and there. The mids are ok, the highs are a little attenuated and again, not very detailed. These are good gym earbuds or for your teenage son/daughter. Just not detailed enough for any critical listening-that's not to say they are horrible. On rap and dance tracks it makes me think I am in Vegas in club. I just with the tips had more choices. The small tip is too small and the medium is a tad too big, so I went with the Comply T400 and they hold...

Pros: Warranty and Price

Cons: Like most Skullcandy's, quality for style.

I have tested all of the in-ear headphones that Skullcandy has to offer. I have done this through the very good lifetime warranty plan offered by Skullcandy. I own a pair of 2011 Red/Black Titans and by far they have the best tone, in my opinion, of all the Skullcandy in-ear headphones. Both FMJ and 50/50 offer rich bass. If you are looking for bass then thats what your need. Personally my Titans lasted longer than my friend's FMJ's.   Titans offer the best tone and the only reason I buy Skullcandy is because of their warranty. I am no audiophile, but I seek good quality and Titan's offer they best that Skullcandy can offer. I have been told there are better headphones out...

Great in ear headphones, made better by the price.

Posted

Pros: accuracy and clarity of sound reproduction, build quality, metal construction, included case, price

   These in ear monitors really impressed me, especially due to the deal I got on them. A friend of mine ordered a set of these for both himself and his wife and accidentally processed the order twice, so his find of a good deal became mine when he offered me the extra two sets for $25. The build of these are of a much higher quality then the ink'd line that Skullcandy sells with this model's driver housings being constructed in all metal in either black or chrome with the headphone's leads wrapped in a second clear protective casing which seems to hold up well (no discoloring) and seems to do the job (Neither I, nor my friend have had no trouble with any bad wire problems...
