The cornerstone of the SkullCandy philosphy of sound is broken up in the three pillars to which all of Skullcandys' headphones are built. Attacking Bass, Natural Vocals, and Precision Highs to deliver a sound experience that never leaves your music or game sounding flat.

Attacking Bass

Most headphones´ bass is either suppressed and muddy or exaggerated and boomy. Skullcandys' Supreme Sound "Attacking Bass" experience hits with punchy & powerful bass that is engineered for your music.

Natural Vocals

We´ve all heard headphones with hollow or tinny vocals that sound like they´re coming from an AM radio. Supreme Sound let´s you hear warm & smooth vocals as if you were standing beside your favorite songwriter.

Precision Highs

We engineer Skullcandys' headphones to produce clean & spacious highs, not piercing or muted highs like you've probably heard in other headphones. Supreme Sound delivers perfect highs for the final element of an amazing audio experience.

You are free to move about!

Don't worry about getting tripped up with a snakes nest of cables. With PLYR 2`s wireless technology experience crystal clear audio without being tied down.

Pivoting Boom Microphone

Adjustable mic position flips up for instant muting and drops back into place to rejoin the conversation and the battle.

EQ3 Sound Equalizer Modes

EQ3 Sound Equalization offers three different settings depending on what you are playing, watching or listening to. Games mode focuses on what you love to hear, balancing voice with the explosions and music of the latest first person shooter. Music Mode balances the headphones to hear your music as it was intended. Movies mode envelops you in the action while ensuring that vocals are heard.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.

This is the lifestyle that the headphones are designed for. Each style has unique features that make it perfect for particular people.

Designed for those that are active. These headphones are made to stay in the ear during workouts. Whether you frequent the gym a lot or go running outside in the fresh air, these active style headphones will be your best friend.

For those that need the best in music quality. These audiophile headphones are engineered to produce high fidelity and accurate audio replication.

Disc Jockeys (DJs) require a special type of headphone that can meet their professional needs. These headphones are durable, loud, and will often allow for one ear listening.

Fashion Enthusiast:
For those that want to make a fashion statement with their headphones. Not only are these headphones designed with great sound quality in mind, but also great looks!

This lifestyle speaks for itself! If you love video games and want a pair of headphones that will deliver explosive sound and allow you to communicate with others, this is where you need to shop!

Music Lover:
These headphones are made to sound great. They are designed to produce rich, brilliant sounds that will play your music in a manner that the artists would appreciate. These headphones are for those that love music.

Musical Production / Recording Artists:
You're a music creator. Whether you're producing and mixing it down or in the studio recording yourself, you need a pair of headphones that will reproduce the music perfectly without any coloration. Look here for reference quality studio monitoring headphones.

Headphones need to be affordable and durable to keep up with the student lifestyle. A variety of styles can be considered a pair of student headphones.

Those that often find themselves on planes or on the road a lot. These headphones are compact, lightweight, and have a portable design. Some of the headphones in this lifestyle will feature noise cancellation technology that will help shut out outside noise.

Acoustic Principle
The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types: Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source. Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room. Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

General Features

Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
20 - 20,000 Hz
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
104 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
40 mm
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
26 ohms
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Secondary Color
A color that compliments the main color of the product.

All around good

April 29, 2014

I was looking for a wireless headset to use with my laptop, this one fit my needs. all the bits are good for travel and dont require space allocated for their setup. the sound is good, the noise cancel is good, as well as the battery.

the only issue i have with it is that I have TMJ and the headset squeezes a little tight on my averaged sized head. prolonged use (1hr+) causes pain in my jaw

Awesome Sauce

February 10, 2014

Really good product for the price. Sure they don't compete with the high dollar alternatives, but they are much better than I thought they would be.

Battery life is stellar. I use these for long periods of time on the weekends, 10+ hours, and the only time I run out of battery is when I forget to charge them the night before.

Very comfortable. Like I said, I use these things for hours on end with no discomfort.
