Yes maybe so. But can they be serious when they say the Skullcandy's SOUND competes with the HD650s when properly amped? I highly doubt it. It may cost a lot more, but it will be worth it If someone usually turns around with "Yeah but it costs so much more, stuff it. I will keep to my Skullcandy's" obviously doesn't have a passion for audio gear.

Funny how my friends say they love music a lot more than me, yet are too tight to spend over $20 on earphones. Now who loves their music more and wants to hear it in the best quality they can?

A fine description, because every single Skullcandy headphone IS something a 13 year old girl or boy under the age of 11 would wear! XD



Seriously though, Skullcandy is.. bleh.
It has sound quality like a school cafeteria.

Its easy to slam a product without being specific... but that just shows complete ignorance. Don't listen to people that can't back up there opinions with facts. If you read through the various responses you will notice no one can tell you "why" they do or do not like the SK Pro's.

 

1. The SK Pro is a Studio over the ear headphone - this means the frequency response is virtually flat from the lows, mids and highs. This allows the listener to hear each range within a given track equally, giving it a very true sound.

2. The SK Pro is loaded with features - dj articulation, coil cable, leather pillows on the ears and headband & a stash and go design

3.  The SK Pro has 50mm studio speakers, with abs material.

4. In addition, Skullcandy has a lifetime warranty.

 

After doing my research I bought a pair of SK Pro's and have been amped from day one.

 

So... in the words of Biggie "if ya don't know, now ya know"

Nice first post....

 

So from point 1 you're saying these skullcandies are neutral?? Okay, what other headphones have you heard?

I'm interested in trying the pros for myself after reading some optimistic reviews on it... but just can't bring myself to drop 70+ bucks for it... (half off coupon). I plugged my old skull crushers into my udac today just to see how they would do with a good source and amplification. I must admit, the sq improved noticeably although the bass was still waay outta control. The most bass I've ever heard from cans.

I remember listening to a pair of the Skullcandy Hesh. They were very muddy and had almost no midrange sound.

 

HOWEVER, I did own a pair of their Icon headphones for a while, which I thought were decent. They had a decent range of sound, ok Bass response, decent highs. They were a huge improvement over the Hesh simply because they had an audible mid range.

 

But ultimately I have discovered the Koss Porta Pro and Sennheiser HD 203, and these are leagues better than the Skullcandies.

1. Calling it Studio means jack **** without measurements. They call the Beats "Studio" too, but you'd get whiplash riding its frequency response curve. Going at all by the Skullcandy graphs at Headroom, the SK Pro is not flat. But I'd have to see it itself graphed, of course.

 

2. So do other, already well-regarded portable headphones, like the Audio-Technica M50. I think there's a model that comes with a coil cable.

 

3. Driver size (calling them speakers is a little misleading) means absolutely nothing. Theoretically a bigger driver will push more air, but it's how that size is utilized that matters. All Grado headphones use 40mm drivers, but several of their models (HF2, PS1) are considered some of the punchiest headphones around, meaning they can push some serious air and fast.

 

4. They better, since I've heard horror stories about how terribly fragile they are. By their looks, you step on an M50, you'll probably break your foot first.

 

In the words of Tupac Shakur, "The only thing that comes to a sleeping man is dreams."

Complete ignorance is praising Skullcandy without seriously trying real brands.

You're either deaf, dumb, or a liar.

 

Or all of the above.

I was a victim of skullcandy when I first got into headphones, thankfully I only paid 13 Euros for some Ink'd and stopped there. Main reason I got them was:

 

1. Wanted bass

2. Don't run around with the infamous white iBud where people can mug me confirming I have an Ipod

3. Isolation, which it does really well

 

But in the end, I realised how crappy the bass was and how horrible the mids and highs were. Heck even the iBuds had a better mid and high range. Lesson learned, and grew from it.

Lol I am 16 and I would never (or have ever) been stupid enough to buy Skullcandy products  Some teenagers these days...

I was young, poor, and naive okay?

 

But honestly, I think that the Skullcandies, the in ear ones, are worth the value for it's price. Ten dollars is a good bass improvement over the stock apple earphones. I respect somebody who wear the Skullcandy Ink'd over those who wear generic earbuds that they got from the plane or cellphones anyday.

 

However, Skullcandy "headphones", that's another story. Trash in => Trash out.
