5 out of 5 eggsIf you want a wireless headset, this is it.

Pros: I don't even know where to start. I've been using wireless headsets exclusively for 3-4 years because of the convenience, and I've used probably 5 different sets in that time ranging from $30-$200. This pair takes the cake.

Sound Quality: Great

Microphone quality: Awesome (seriously my last pair of $200 wireless headphones had my friends constantly yelling at me for how awful my mic sounded)

Build/Look: Listen this isn't an apple product, it's made of plastic, but that plastic makes it LIGHT. Nothing feels like it's going to break, though I haven't exactly tried to sit on it or throw it out the window.

Comfort: Very. They're light and don't put tons of pressure on your ears (like some headphones do). Seriously they're very comfortable.

Battery life: Magic. I don't know how these do what they do but I've worn them for literally an entire waking day before and never had them go out on me.

Price: Absolutely fair. I've had these for several months now and I still couldn't be happier.

Cons: The little nob on the side that controls volume and game/voice sound is a little finicky. It's still nice to have, and it "does" work, it's just hard to control the exact amount and there's no way to know which way it's already set.

One time there was a little rattle in one of the headsets like something was loose in there. They still worked and the sound disappeared after a few days so who knows.

Other Thoughts: I had never owned a skullcandy product before, and I honestly had never taken them seriously before. I thought they just made cheap colorful earbuds. I am blown away by how nice these are, how well they work, how comfortable they are, and how long the battery lasts. I'm very impressed, and even when this pair breaks ( I assume it will eventually), I'll happily pick up another.

You will want a 3.5 to 3.5mm cord. I used one from an old pair of headphones. Most people have one laying around somewhere.

1 out of 5 eggsWill never buy anything else from this company

Pros: The only thing that i can say positive about this is the the mic produced high quality sound, and the battery life is awesome

Cons: Other then that this headset has been nothing but problems. For those looking for a new headset look elsewhere i will list the defects below

1. While not a defect i had to purchase a additional 3.5 mm cord to get stereo sound , BUT one big defect is on alot of games the sound will fade out to what i assume is save battery power. the 3.5 mm cord fixes this

2. The plastic around the ear cups are made out of is the cheapest plastic i have seen. In under 2 weeks of owning the plastic ripped had to superglue. A month later the other side cracked its duck taped now.

3. Cords are insanely too short. I don't know why they didn't make the cords that came with the device longer specifically the charging cord had to use one from another device or i would have had the wireless receiver hanging by my neck

Other Thoughts: Dont buy this mine is still workingt ATM but i am already looking for a new one to replace PLEASE dont waste your money on this it is not worth it

5 out of 5 eggsI love these things

Pros: -very comfortable padding
-rugged design, means this thing can take a strong beating
-great sound quality
-long battery like about 5-6 hours usually
-plug and play literally no extensive software
-great range even through walls

Cons: -no 3.5 mm connector for PC users like me. So out of the box you can't use it for that. Come on skull candy whats an extra 2 dollars for such a simple wire
-looks giant on my tiny head

Other Thoughts: If your looking for a rugged headset, with great battery, range and sound quality then this will be a great buy.

5 out of 5 eggsSkullCandy

Pros: Great Sound! The headset is only 2.0 stereo but it sounds very good for all my games and music.
Easy hookup. Literally plug and play on the pc. Maybe 2 minutes between unboxing and playing.
The mic seems good quality. I like being able to mute by lifting the boom.
Minimalist but intuitive controls.

Cons: Nothing major so far.
Not sure I like the material for the ear cups. Would have preferred leather/faux leather/vinyl.
They are not 5.1 or 7.1 but I knew that going in.

Other Thoughts: Pretty impressed with the set so far. Excellent sound quality and ease of use. Got it with a $40 newegg gift card so it was a great value as well.

4 out of 5 eggsA Few Things to Consider

Pros: The sound is exceptional for the price range
The wireless is reliable
They are quite sturdy, and the solid design lends itself well to superglue repair if one were to accidentally fall asleep wearing them

Cons: To get good sound out of these, you need to buy a 3.5mm male to male cable (that wasn't included when I bought these) to connect the wireless receiver to your sound card. If you don't do this, you get low quality mono sound, and you won't get to utilize your sound card.

They rarely turn themselves off for what seems like no reason. I am still not sure why they do this, but it isn't frequent enough to bother me; just something to note.

With their sturdiness comes weight. They a bit heavy.

The last and most prominent flaw with these is the microphone. The mic sensitivity is very weak on PC
(I hear it is fine on consoles) to the point where I am about to replace these. I managed to survive on these for a long time by asking my friends to turn their volume for me up, but that really shouldn't be their responsibility. Being USB, you can't use your sound card to improve the microphone settings. What you see is what you get, and that means that you aren't going to get microphone boost, or any advanced settings for that matter.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you get the 3.5mm connection set up. These are pretty awful without it.
Don't buy it for the microphone if you are using PC. It is the headset's weak point.

4 out of 5 eggsCould do worse

Pros: Good price. Looks great. Comfortable. Decent sound. Awesome battery life!

Cons: I've had few problems with this headset. I do wish the usb cables were a bit longer.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if it is the PLYR 2 headsets fault or not but Metro: Last Light Kept crashing with them enabled.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Long battery life (12 hours of constant use is the most I've gotten out of it)

Very comfortable

Good sound quality

Pretty descent range (I don't really care about range, honestly...but it's not bad)

Very crisp/clear mic.

I've dropped it like 30 times since I've had it and it hasn't shown any stress or fractures. Good build quality even though it feels pretty cheap in some places.

Cons: The bass on these is pretty terrible...but really good bass on a headset usually gives me a headache after awhile...so I'm not too worried about it.

The mic isn't very loud. I can have it practically inside my mouth and people still won't be able to hear me all that well (Fully turned up inside windows, and fully turned up on the program)

5 out of 5 eggs5 Egg product for sure

Pros: Long range, Great Style, Wonderful battery life, Good mic.
They are built well and have a nice solid feel to them.
Also they are very comfortable. I have a big head lol.

Cons: Like I read in another review The red middle part seems very weak and i'm pretty sure it will not last very long.
Other than that Great product.

Other Thoughts: If you on the fence about these like i was do to the lack of reviews buy them you will be happy.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Headset

Pros: Sleek
Sexy
Sound Quality is O.K.
Feels Great, doesn't hurt your ears/head

Cons: Flimsy where the red dividers connect the upper and lower halves of the headset.

Other Thoughts: Overall good headset, sounds great, looks great, feels great. Would recommend. However, waiting for the Plyr 1's may be in your best interest.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

Pros: Excellent volume control knob on side to adjust sound and equalize game vs voice over IP. The fit is comfortable at first but looses a little bit of shape (some people complain they are tight but that stops after a week of use.

Stereo sound is fine I don't need 7.1 but bass is essential as I listen to dubstep. This set of earphones has a switch I didn't realize would be so handy. It's by the other controls and it has bass-boost, powerful, and something else. Look on the box. Anyhow they change the sound and overall it's incredible.

I had been seeking a pair I could specifically use as wireless but charge with a cord WHILE I use them - because nothing ruins a raid more than the tank texting the GM 'my headphones just quit again'.

Cons: I hate the little red stripe on the side underneath the white. I prefer plain white. Red is too angry! My PC is orange/white. Why can't you match my earphones to it, darn you Skullcandy!! ;)

Other Thoughts: I have to tuck my ears into the space for them and I have very tiny ears? I am not sure if this was meant to occur but if you are built like dumbo you might want to keep the receipt in case you do not like the fit.
