Skullcandy is part of a recent wave of designer headphones for personal use. They have over a dozen different styles which all come in multiple colors, so there is something for everyone.
The Skullcandy SCS-SCBP3.5 Skullcrusher is a mid-priced, specialty over the ear headphone with added bass. Like their other models, this one comes in several colors from solid black to purple, green or blue. Music lovers who prefer heavy bass like hip hop will love this model – they’re advertised as a pair of sub-woofers against your skull. These headphones are compact, and fold away for storage in the included bag.
Another thing that makes these headphones attractive to buyers is the lifetime warranty. All parts and repairs due to defect or normal use are covered by the company. Make sure to fill our and return your warranty information as soon as you get your headphones.
The ear cups fit solidly over the ear and do cancel out most noise. They’re comfortable and can be worn for extended periods of time without any discomfort. Because of their design, no one will be able to hear what you’re listening to, so you won’t annoy your friends or roommates!
These headphones are corded with a standard line that is about six feet long. They also come with a jack adapter to fit larger stereo jacks.
The audio quality is true, but it’s the bass that makes this headphone remarkable. The technology is cutting-edge, and these headphones feature a West Coast Sub-Woofer Bass. The controls for the this are located on the cord and the bass can be lowered or increased to your preference. This bass is amazing and perfect for people who are into the genres of music that has a lot of it. Hip Hop, pop and R&B sound like you wouldn’t believe. The bass also does well for rock music and heavy metal, but should be turned down a bit or the bass will overwhelm the other instruments.
The only real drawback to these headphones is the bass controller. It is battery powered, and has to be turned on if you want any bass at all in your music. Anyone who uses these headphones for more than two or three hours a day will be replacing the battery every two or three days. You will also have to remember to turn the bass off when you are done using the headphones, or your battery will run down. Though you can use rechargeable batteries, they do not last as long as regular batteries.
All in all, Skullcandy Skullcrushers are a great headphone at a great value. You can also get the coupon and cheap deal online. They would make a welcome addition to any music lover’s accessories.
