5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - Black

Pros: Everything. Sound is awesome, comfortable, battery lasts a very long time. They are not as good quality as the Astro A50 (I bought that one for my son) but at about 1/2 the price they much better bang for your buck.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't know how I see so many reviews of people with issues of it breaking. I bought mine 1-10-2014 and still use everyday. That is just over 2 years and still like new.

3 out of 5 eggsSkullycandy PLYR

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - Black

Pros: - Look Great. I had in the white color scheme and was really satisfied with how the set looked out of the box.

- Boom mic is excellent. Best mic on a gaming headset I've had. Not only is quality good for a headset but the mic itself is both adjustable and sturdy.

- 7.1 surround. Took a bit of work to get properly set up, nothing a couple google searches can't clear up, but the surround sound was legit. I'm using a Sony headset now (see Cons) and the 7.1 is not as good. After using this headset I will not buy one without this feature.

- Overall Sound Quality. For the price I was happy both listening to bass heavy music and for finer sounds like footsteps in CS or Battlefield

Cons: - Construction. The headset broke about 8 months after using them. They broke at the black plastic that connects the right ear piece to the top of the set. This happened while putting the headset on. I may have been eager to sit down for a nice gaming session but I wouldn't say I pulled at them with any considerable force. It wasn't like I was yanking them off in anger. So obviously pretty disappointing.

Fit - I have kind of larger ears and the cushion on the headphone is designed such a way that your ear needs to fit inside this cushion. My ear was slightly too big to do this, so it really wore on my after say 3-4 hours of use. Not awful but could have been better. Would probably fit great if you have smaller ears.

Other Thoughts: Broke too quick. Everyone I talked to before buying this product said skull candy had cheap construction and they proved it to me here. The technology here is great but the basics are bit off.

1 out of 5 eggsbroke after a few months of everyday use

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - Black

Pros: Great sound
Nice Mic quality

Cons: Plastic bracket holding left ear cup to headband broke. I had started using them everyday the last few months.

I am 6 months out of the limited 1 year warranty so nothing to be done other than complain. Not the build quality i was expecting when i dropped $180

Other Thoughts: Had just purchased some SLYR1s for my PS4....think I'll send those back straight away.

1 out of 5 eggssadly trash

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - Black

Pros: was a decent headset when it worked.

Cons: very cheap build broke on me within 1 year and i went through hell with the RMA and when i did receive the replacement it broke within 6 months. very poor wiring. very thin wire that rips with normal use. also it needs an amp to get actual good sound levels from it.

Other Thoughts: the wireless was nice, but the mic would quit working so quick and then shortly after the whole left side will stop working. serious QC issues.

4 out of 5 eggsNice headset with one annoying flaw

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - Black

Pros: Comfortable, wireless, good battery life (due to the con below), not too heavy, great sound quality, both speaker and microphone, great range, comes with all of the cables (including the fiber optic cable!)

Cons: Auto-shutoff after 5 minutes of no activity. The power button is flush with the casing, which makes it hard to turn back on, Short headset USB cable

Other Thoughts: While I listed a few cons, I still rated the product as a 4/5 eggs, as the main reasons you would buy this have been satisfied. The non-configurable auto-shutoff is annoying, but it does serve to increase overall battery life.

The major reason for the -1 egg is due to the power button. If you are not used to the headset yet, you could be fishing around to locate it unless you remove the headset. The button should be bulged out a bit, so that it is obvious that that is where it is.

The short USB cable that the unit comes with? Easily replaceable by a longer one. Since I game.. alot.. it would be nice to be able to wear them while they are charging. As the cable is so short, there is no way to do this from the "out of the box" cables. If I was SkullCandy, for future revisions of this product, I would include a 6ft headset USB cable. That would be more than adequate. Also, the ability to configure the auto-shutdown feature would be nice as well as a firmware update.

2 out of 5 eggsSounds great but needs better mic

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - Black

Pros: Great sound
Good range on wireless
Looks sleek
Easy to set up

Cons: Microphone is way to low on pc
Skullcandy CS took too long to respond.

Other Thoughts: Bought this headset 2/16/14 to use with my pc and consoles. Hooked it up and was amazed on how great they sounded. Connected to my xbox 360 and everything was great, had microphone working fine. Connected to my computer and still sounded great. Once in game however my team couldn't hear me well unless I spoke loud. I checked all settings in the sound menu and turned up the microphone. Again they couldn't hear me. I went to my sound recorder on my computer and recorded a test sound and was only able to hear anything when I turned up my headphones. Sent an e-mail to Skullcandy about the issue to see if they had any solutions. Waited about a week with no response before I contacted NewEgg for a return. NewEgg representatives were very helpful and after about a minute of explaining the situation I was set up for an RMA and promptly got a return label. Got my refund about 7 days later once they received my package back.

Thought Skullcandy would be worth trying because they were working with Astro when making this headset. I might give them a chance again, but it's going to be based on their reviews before I go with them again.

3 out of 5 eggsComfort > Quality

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - Black

Pros: some of the most comfortable headsets I've owned. sound is great and the range is Quite good.

Cons: Something on the mic arm broke very early on and now there is rattling in the left cup. also the optical input for the device is now not working, making a crackling sound and always cuts in and out. will be looking for an RMA soon.

Other Thoughts: probably just a defective headset as the 7.1 would not work at all. the mic is a bit quiet and it does eventually annoy the listeners. it is also very hard to record audio from the mic.

5 out of 5 eggsLove these things...

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - Black

Pros: Most wireless earphones will only do 20 or 30 feet in my house, and never behind closed doors and down on the first floor. These things work every where in my house - up to 40 feet away and on a different floor!

The sound is excellent in both 2.0 mode (stereo) and 5.1. You can actually hear sounds behind you.

Cons: One problem is the microphone is somewhat quiet; I'm assuming it is because it is noise cancelling.

I wish the device used either USB or Toslink. When all you have is USB you only get mono.
