3 out of 5 eggsNice but my mic broke with hardly any use

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: Sound good, nice looking, crystal clear, long range.

Cons: Ear cup design is too small. The microphone would be SO much better if it was like the SLYR's. ITs flimsy and spins around. Mine broke out of the blue.

Other Thoughts: I went back to my G35's because of the broken mic. Its a bad design period.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality, Made to fail product

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: Great sound, great signal coverage, can move across rooms with ease without distortion.

Cons: Poor quality, cup material cannot be removed to wash it. I bought this in September 2013 and the left air piece broke off. it broke off just where the 3 screw hold the cup into the headset. The screws go into little plastic pillars that have no cross hair wing support so this basically was made to fail over time.

I am 48 years old and very careful with my stuff and always put the headset on its cradle after use. This item snapped off just putting on my head.

Unacceptable for a $200.00 headset. Never buying from this company again.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap quality

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: The wireless signal is very strong. I can move to other rooms of my apartment and still get a signal.

Cons: Ear piece broke after less then a year. Its snapped at the plastic bosses for the screws that hold the top band on. Part broke off while trying to place the headset on my head. There was no misuse on my part. Just cheap plastic design. Not something you should get for 200 dollars.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Headset

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: sound is ok?

Cons: For what you get its expensive
Not very comfortable
fabric that collects oil from skin, dirt, hair.. and best of all Cannot be removed to wash...
Mic will not pick up your voice unless it is basically inside your mouth, but if you manage to get the sweet spot it sounds ok.
-Poor quality (cheap) mine is rattling inside and the only time I ever dropped them was off my head and onto my lap. (2 feet?)
NO dirvers? no updates?
Some games experience audio distortions, like wolfenstien, which is basically unplayable with this headset.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money. I will likely not buy skullcandy again.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: The sound these headphones are able to produce is phenomenal. When paired with a good 7.1 sound card you will instantly notice a dramatic change from 5.1 sound. Very stylish. Clear microphone. Constant connection between the headphone and the base with a very good range.

Cons: I would highly suggest you buy the extended warranty offered by Newegg. Within the first 2 weeks I noticed flaking of the plastic on both side where the screws are near the earpiece. I have owned these for about two months and there are noticeable cracks between the headpiece cushion and the left and right earpiece markers that have started to develop. The earpiece is comfortable for about 2 hours on my ears after that it becomes extremely painful. However, I am a pretty big guy so take that into consideration.

Other Thoughts: Buy the warranty!

4 out of 5 eggsLove and Hate

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: The Headset is one of the best sound quality headsets i have ever owned. the stand is very nice to hold your headset on since the wires are short and have to go to the box. They fit my ears good and i have a decently big pair of ears on me :P. defiantly great at cancelling out sounds from everywhere else and fantastic for listening to music or movies in a crowded room

Cons: when i first plug it in the wire has a chance to make a bad connection and buzz on the other players side while you hear nothing. easy fix tho just unplug from the xbox controller and back in. the mic seams to lose its stability after a little bit of use and just starts to hang after a couple good uses.

Other Thoughts: after taking the egg away for the mic i would have to say that i would defiantly buy this headset again

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: -With Optical In / Out the hardware works great. 7.1 works and sounds great, first time I've had that on a headset. I also had no problem with mic volume as some have complained. I have also had no issues with the USB microphone not using optical in. It worked fine on vent and in game BF4.
-Very comfortable fit over ears and I have large ears so this has been an issue for me in the past. Easy to wear for long period of times.
-Long range. I can go down 2 floors and still hear my music while I'm say, doing the laundry.
-Long Battery Life. I forget to charge things often and this headset has held up like a champ.
- Cool features like lower the mic to turn it on and volume controls one ear cup.

Cons: - The ear cups can move in an out of the headset with I don't know, 20 degree movement. This is all well and good for getting a nice fit but it makes the headset seem a little flimsy for its size.
- The button on the right ear cup to control volume is also fairly flimsy and can get knocked around and suddenly increase the volume. I wish there was a way to lock it and I hope it doesn't snap on.
- The cable that came with the set for charging is about 6 inches long and can't be used while playing

Other Thoughts: Great Headset, definitely designed with gamers in mind. Went back and forth between this and a sennheiser and I am very happy.

2 out of 5 eggsRMA

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: ~Wireless! My first pair and i loved the freedom!
~Battery life is great

Cons: ~ RMA them. My voice output was low even maxed and something was broken rattling around on the inside (Prob an important voice component and caused the low output)
~Charging cord is not very long. Must take them off and charge them if the run out of batteries.

Other Thoughts: I'm gonna give them another shot. i really liked everything minus the con's

2 out of 5 eggsFeels Cheap, awkward....

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: Wireless, Good audio

Cons: Screws are loose, some are missing that whenever I move my head I can hear the screws moving. Microphone is loose and moves all around. I would try to exchange with Skullcandy, but I need it, and it will take at least 4 weeks.

Other Thoughts: I want to exchange as I like them, but don't want to wait the 4 weeks.
