2 out of 5 eggsGood sound, bad product quality

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: Average overall product, good sound, good mic quality. Comes with a nice holder to dock your headset on and put out of the way while not in use.

Cons: Plastic quality is cheap. There are three little screws that connect the plastic of the headset to the ear pieces and within the first 6 months of owning it the screws that hold the plastic together at the earpiece, snapped. I was able to put it back together and it held for another about 8 months until recently where they just broke apart for good in the same spot but on the other side.

Other Thoughts: Really disappointed with these because I really liked them. Great sound and it's a bonus that they're wireless. However, they either need to lower their prices or do something about the quality because the price point for the quality just isn't there.

4 out of 5 eggsStill working after all these years

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: It works, even after I dug it out of storage after 9 months because my Steelseries H wireless stopped working.

The sound is good, but you need to hook up the optical cable, i think, to get directional sound.

Cons: The plastic can be brittle, but it can be superglued. mic has had some isues for me on some voip related programs, but not others.

Other Thoughts: All in all a competent well made head set that isn't perfect, but it won't die on you and it has outlasted more and less expensive options for me.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage - 3 broke in 4 months

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: None, these are garbage and Skullcandy support is worthless.

Cons: Unreliable, poor quality.

Other Thoughts: First pair lasted 5 weeks. Had to go through Skullcandy to get a replacement and pay to ship them back. Those lasted 4 weeks. Had to pay again to send back for another set. Those lasted a week. Agreed on the phone with support that I'd get a refund. Paid to send the 3rd headset back. 6 weeks go by and didn't receive anything. Finally called and proved they received the 3rd defective headset but then they refused to give a refund b/c they didn't indicate in writing they would do so. They said they would ship me a 4th headset which is worthless to me since I already bought a new headset (different brand). I'll just sell them for cheap on craigslist b/c they're garbage.

So in the end I'm out the money I paid for the first headset plus $32 in shipping back 3 defective headsets.

Won't ever buy another Skullcandy product. The quality is bad and their support is worse. They don't record support calls so you can't prove what was discussed/agreed to over the phone.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Quality - Stay far far away

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: Comfy, great sound quality, battery lasts a pretty good length of time, look cool, and all the features I would want in a gaming headset.

Cons: Headset died completely after 1 month and 1 day of moderate use. Quality of material feels very cheap.

Other Thoughts: I got these as a gift and read a lot of reviews before deciding if I should keep them. I read a lot of negative reviews about build quality. I just decided I would treat them like a baby and literally did just that. I can see how they could crack if I didn't.

They literally just died mid game, sounded like someone pulled the plug on them and now they won't start up, charge, or do anything. They are just dead. We'll see how the warranty process goes but to be honest, I just want my money back.

You couldn't take better care than I did and they still broke. The reviews don't lie, there are much better options out there.

1 out of 5 eggsChanging my review

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: 7.1 Surround sound and very stylish. These headphones look like they would last a long time.

Cons: They are not made for people with hair or people who have to extend the earmuffs to the maximum to fit over your head. I

Other Thoughts: I have owned these headphones for over a year now and in that time I have had the headphone break twice for the exact same reason. The plastic housings that secures the earpiece to the headband will break because they are made of cheap materials. I would not recommend anyone with a large head or lots of hair to purchase this. Skull candy's wait time for a replacement is terrible, expect to wait 5-8 weeks for a replacement.

2 out of 5 eggsWould not recommend, for the price

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: Nice sound, clear mic, good comfortable build & light weight. can wear for many hours straight without taking them off. This headset is great for music and movies but will defiantly not meet your needs for gaming.

Cons: Way to expensive, for the headset. the surround sound is completely broken, and does not sound like anything close to 7.1. They also took a very long time to break the headset in.

Other Thoughts: i would avoid this headset at all costs. defiantly not worth the price.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Headset

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: -Great Sound Quality
-Great Range
-Wireless Obviously
-Rechargable (It has it's own battery but this could be a con if you want to use your own battery)
I've had this Headset over 11 months now and I have to say the Plyr1 has done it's time.

Cons: -The Mic is very low.
When I'm using the mic i have to talk up and it bugs me to do so whether i would like a mic where i can talk normally and not have to worry about others hearing me. The Side button on the mic is annoying if you want to lay down on your side. The loud beep when you have to recharge it. You also need to have an S/PDIF audio output on your back of your computer.

Other Thoughts: Overall It's a good headset. Just If you have $180 to spare then you can get it if you want.

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: Looked good out of the box. Not overly large and clunky. Range is good. Battery life not a issue.

Cons: Plastic broke around the screws above the ear cups after five weeks on right side, left side broke two days later. Didn't expect to use the zip-ties so soon. Friends on Vent claimed low volume, confirmed by self recording and playback. Web videos would often fade out during non-speaking pauses because of some seemingly high silent suppression threshold that lowered the audio. Now after seven months headset completely dead. Will not power on.

Other Thoughts: Like most, I take pride of ownership on these things, meaning no abuse. Better than normal wear and tear. I have enjoyed Skullcandy earbuds. I probably was hoping the PLYR1 price point was reflective of the quality. I couldn't have been more wrong.

1 out of 5 eggsStopped working after 5 months

This review is from: SKULLCANDY PLYR 1 Headset - White

Pros: WIreless. Worked as advertised for 6 months.

Cons: Microphone and sound quality mediocre at best. Not worth $150. Further, device completely dead after 6 months of use. Horrible Skullcandy customer service expected me to pay for shipping on return and wait a month + for a return of my repaired item. I would NEVER buy another product from Skullcandy. Spend money elsewhere
