Sound quality is very good (for the price). Better than my earbuds, though not necessarily as good as the Audio Technica ATH-M50S's. Bass could be a tiny bit punchier, but it is definitely there and very satisfying listen to.
My favourite part about these headphones is how light and portable they are. I bought them primarily for commuting around a big city, and they are perfect for that. I can't even feel them when I wear them. The tap tech and on ear mic work great. Very convenient for walking around.
My only complaint is that they don't fold for easy storage. But you can at least detach the cable so the jack isn't being damaged while jostling around in my bag.
Overall, a solid pair of headphones for the price. Perfect for city commuters.
The first thing I noticed is a better than average precision balancing of sound between the two drivers, and separation that stands out from other headphones in this range. At first the headphones are a little on the harsh side, but after some listening for a week they have seemed to become more dynamic. For being non-amplified, these headphones have managed to provide quite punchy and lively bass without the rest of the sound being muddled or losing accuracy. Frequency sweeps across the spectrum have been very impressive. Noises, horn stabs, shouting sounds, claps, and bright sounding music sound great on these. I have been able to hear different layers of sound while still enjoying that aggressive bass. Another thing that blew me away was the musicality of these headphones. I'm not an audiophile, or one of these people that claims to have golden ears... but I think that musicality really goes a long way. There was noticeable warmth in the mids and lows that made me want to keep listening to music, even other styles I've never heard before. And then I look back at the price and I am astounded. These headphones easily sound better than many others that are over $100. And comfort is the best of any Skullcandy's I've encountered so far. These headphones seem to be an improvement in every way over my Hesh 2s and SkullCrushers. The elements in them seem of considerably better quality and are noticeably more balanced. Sound isolation is pretty good once you get these things completely on your ears, definitely not the best. But certainly no complaints.
The only downside is that the sound is by no means flat. These are not studio reference headphones. Parts of low frequencies and highs will definitely be boosted and can lead to a bit of listening fatigue after long listening sessions.
Update 4/12/18: I have bought some "better" quality studio monitor headphones (the Audio Technica ATH-M40x). With a special app called 'Peace AP0' I have been able to more precisely tune the range of frequencies with a 13 band parametric equalizer and highly customizable Qs. The Skullcandy's have improved considerably with an amp/dac I recently purchased (the Sabre 9018 by Hifime). I can still say I am VERY impressed with the sound of the Skullcandys for the price. The build quality has held up after 2 years of abuse and constant use, and they still look almost new. The left and right drivers also sound surprisingly well balanced in comparison to other more expensive pairs I've owned... and I'm surprised at the degree of refinement in budget headphones. These, embarrassingly, are better balanced between the left and right drivers than the Audio Technicas (although I still love them too and they have their own special strengths over the Skullcandys). With a good amp, I have noted that the midrange is warm on the Skullcandys, but the super low bass extension (below 40 hz) is not that great when compared to more expensive pairs of headphones. I have EQed a considerable bit of the inaccurate bass out of the them, and I am still astounded at the great musicality of pop vocals on these headphones! I still have just as much fun with them, and I would absolutely continue to recommend these to people looking for halfway decent headphones on a budget.
These have been treated as gently as a recliner potato can treat a pair of cans but they seem a bit light, thin gauge plastic etc. not terrible build quality though.
Great value if you want a pair of over ear cans.
