We have currently reviewed 9 Skullcandy headphones. They're a fashion-forward brand that has a decent variety of headphone types for casual listening, sports, and gaming.
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 is not 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:
The best mixed-usage headset that we've reviewed from Skullcandy are the Venue. The Venue have a lightweight, over-ear design with a great battery life and an excellent wireless range. They are 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 canceling to drown out the ambient noise of your busy commutes. If you find the Venues a bit pricey, however, you can go for the similarly designed Skullcandy Crusher Wireless, although they do not have noise cancelling.
The best Skullcandy headphones for listening to music are the Grind. They have a well-made on-ear design that's surprisingly sturdy for their budget price. They also have a fairly balanced frequency response that isn't as bass-heavy as the rest of the Skullcandy lineup. They also have a good battery life and wireless range, and they are one of the more comfortable on-ear headphones that we've tested so far. Unfortunately, the slightly lacking bass may not be ideal for the Skullcandy fans who may prefer a bit more thump and rumble with their music.
The most affordable headset that we've reviewed from Skullcandy are the Jib. If you like the Skullcandy brand and want a budget headset less than $20 for your regular commutes or even to use as a backup at the gym, then the Jib are a good option. They do not have the best build quality or battery life, and although they are wireless they won't be as practical for sports and commuting as the Skullcandy Push. However, if you want a pair of budget wireless headphones to have on you at all times, then the Jib are one of the better options we've tested so far from any brand.
Skullcandy makes fashion-forward headphones. They have a pretty big selection of headphones for casual listening, sports, and gaming, but they do not have a dedicated lineup for more critical listeners. Unfortunately, they're not the ideal brand for the most neutral and well-balanced sound as they 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 cheap and affordable.
