The headset comes with a Bluetooth 4.1 technology along with its powerful 40mm drivers. The frequency response of this headset is 20-20000 Hz. It’s rich bass and crystal clear vocals will leave you in awe. It’s a beast in the form of this headphone.

What Do We like
The battery life of this Skullcandy headset is unbelievably good. It lasts up to 12 hours of music playback after one full charge. It means you charge the device once, and you’re set for the whole day without worrying about going anywhere near the charger.
The audio quality of this headset is great. Vocals are very crisp to hear, and bass is heavy. If you listen in high volume, there is no difference in the audio quality at all. The rich bass and crystal clear sound will enrich your listening experience to a new level.
This headphones altogether weight is 159 grams only. It’s less than a modern android mobile phone. It feels even lighter on your head when you’re wearing it. That is why you can fold it and easily carry it anywhere. No problem at all.
The microphone that comes with this Skullcandy headset is of excellent quality. It grasps the sound very easily and is appreciated for long-duration calls/skype/facetime etc. You will be satisfied with its quality and can have a decent conversation.
What We Don’t Like
The biggest con of this headset is that it doesn’t have any kind of noise cancellation. If you’re not listening at a higher volume, you can listen to the noise coming from outside. At this high price range, a feature like this common was expected.
This headphone is a little beast. It has a great battery life along with crystal clear sound and bass. The weight is something you will hardly feel. The microphone quality is absolutely great. Just the noise cancellation is a big turn off for this headset. But if you ignore that part, it’s pretty much everything anyone looks for in a headphone. So it’s worth a buy.
