3 out of 5 eggsSKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: -Sound quality is great on these!
-Super Light weight for wireless!
-Comfort . Fixes my smaller sized head great.

Cons: - Durability. Ive owned two set. First have piece rattling loosely inside. RMA it and the second had the same. Second pair also had an earpiece break off without dropping just over time the screw holes fractured and i had to use Liquid nails for repair..
- MIC VOLUME IS LOW! Even maxing all audio adjustments its still very quiet.

Other Thoughts: In closing i would not recommend this product for the price you are paying. Go Astro a40 or 50 or a lower end Sennheiser headset.

1 out of 5 eggsThey break very very easily!

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: Yes they sound great, yes they look good, yes the memory foam is nice on the ears, and yes they are pretty light weight plus great battery life making them awesome for long gaming sessions. But beware, it only last 2-3 months for me with just normal use.

Cons: But unfortunately, all of those great things about these headsets were shortlived by the choice of materials and fastening components used in the production of the headset. You may find the negative reviews about how the earcups breaking away from the headband prematurely, they are all true. It is obviously a design fault, and inadequate product testing and quality control before the product was being rolled out of the factory. The 3 small screws securing the earcups to the headband would rip the plastic threads out, because the plastic material used is too thin, too weak, and too brittle. The joints between the headband and the earcups are usually subject to most stresses even at normal use, but that factor was completely disregarded during the design process and no effort was shown to reinforce the fixture(even by adding another plastic plate to thicken that area would help). Another possible hit to the engineering design department could be that the screws were overtightened during the assembly of the product, but either way... the product was poorly engineer and the promotional video now simply makes the people explaining how the product came about look like they didn't really know what they were doing.

Other Thoughts: All in all, these headsets only look good and sound good, but the lifespan is way too short and you need to be handling them like how you would handle eggs because they break so easily.
Stage 2 of horrible experience with Skullcandy is their warranty department. Make sure you read all the fine prints because they only cover the functionality parts(i.e. no sound, no power etc.) for 1 year only, but not when it breaks physically because that would be users' fault or mishandling(eventhough technically if the earcups break away from the headset, it diminished its function as a headset as well, but they don't cover that). They encourage you to send the product back at your own cost, but they won't promise that they will a replacement or send the faulty product back to you. Plus you need to wait 4-6 weeks before they tell you what they are going to do. The website posted instructions on how to make warranty claim, with contact email address and phone number. Try emailing them, they will take about 3-4 days before they send a reply to you with the exact instructions you see on their webpage. Try calling them, they will ask for all the details they specified on their webpage, and telling you that you will receive further instructions in your email, and guess what? You will get an email with the exact instructions you see on their webpage, asking for the exact information which you have already relayed to them over the phone. So talking to any of them is as good as talking to a machine or a wall, and still, there is no guarantee that they will fix it or replace it, and there is no way they are giving you a refund.
So if you don't mind buying a new headset every 2-3 months, these are great! Otherwise....stay far far away.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked well for awhile...

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: Great sound quality, range, battery life, and VERY comfortable (can where for 6 hours and it not hurting)

Cons: DURABILITY IS BAD. I mean wow.... When I first bought these headphones there was a slight creaking sound on the right side near the earcups but I didn't think much of it. The other day (6 months later) while just attempting to put them on my head the plastic part around the earcup snapped (with the 3 little cheap screws) and had to send em back to skullcandy for my 1 year warranty. Now i probably wont get a new pair back for another month. If these were more durable without the cheap plastic then they would be one of the best headphones ever. Beware buyer that these can EASILY break.

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
