We have currently reviewed 10 pairs of Skullcandy headphones. They're a fashion-forward brand that has a decent variety of headphone types for casual listening, sports, and gaming.
The best Skullcandy headphones we've reviewed are the Skullcandy Venue. The Venue have a lightweight, over-ear design with a great battery life and an excellent wireless range. They're also noise cancelling headphones, which makes them a bit more versatile for noisy environments. Overall, these are a good choice if you want a Skullcandy headset that still packs their signature bass, but that also has noise cancelling to drown out the ambient noise of your busy commutes. If you find them a bit pricey, however, you can go for the similarly-designed Skullcandy Crusher Wireless, although they don't have noise cancelling.
The best budget Skullcandy headphones that we’ve tested so far are the Skullcandy Grind Wireless. They’re among the best Bluetooth headphones we’ve reviewed and provide very good value for their price. They have a decently balanced audio reproduction that delivers a bit less bass than most Skullcandy headphones we’ve tested, which is good for those who prefer a slightly more neutral frequency response, but they still sound fairly exciting. Their lightweight design makes them very easy to carry around but, unfortunately, they don’t fold into a more compact format. That said, they’re one of the most comfortable wireless on-ear headphones we’ve reviewed and are very easy to recommend.
The best true wireless earbuds from Skullcandy that we've reviewed so far are the Skullcandy Sesh. They're decent in-ear truly wireless headphones that offer great price-to-performance ratio. Their sound is decently well-balanced overall, but are quite bass-heavy and will likely please fans of EDM or hip-hop. They're reasonably comfortable for in-ears and have a good stable fit that should keep them in your ears even during light workouts. Unfortunately, their microphone performance is sub-par, and recorded audio sounds quite thin and muffled. Their battery life is also disappointing at just over 3.5 hours, with only an additional two charges from their case, which isn't great. Overall, though, they're a good option for those who want a decently well-rounded pair of truly wireless in-ears without spending too much money.
The best cheap earbuds that we’ve tested from Skullcandy are the Skullcandy Jib Wireless. If you like Skullcandy’s signature thumping bass and want inexpensive Bluetooth earbuds for your daily commute or even to have on hand as a backup pair at the gym, then these are a decent option. They don’t have the best build quality or battery life, but if you’re looking for cheap earbuds that you can keep on you at all times, then these are one of the better options that we've tested so far.
Overall, Skullcandy delivers a decent variety of fashion-forward headphones that come in a lot of unique colors to match your taste, style, and preferences. They have sports headphones and gaming headphones at an affordable price. Unfortunately, they don't have the best build quality, and their sound isn't the most balanced, favoring a bass-heavy audio reproduction over a neutral one.
Skullcandy has a specific name for each model that they release. They offer a wide variety of headphones from on-ears to gaming headsets, including some around the neck designs. However, since they don't have a name for their entire lineup, below are just a few examples of their headphones:
Skullcandy makes fashion-forward headphones. They have a pretty big selection of headphones for casual listening, sports, and gaming, but they don’t have a dedicated lineup for more critical listeners. Unfortunately, they're not the ideal brand for those seeking a more neutral frequency response since most of their headphones favor a bass-heavy sound profile. They're also not as sturdy or as durable as some other headphones in their price range, but on the upside, their models are relatively affordable.
