Let me go through the cons first:
1) The three-button control system is garbage. An extra button would be pennies in construction (probably easier to program without timers, too) and there is room on the device, so there is NO REASON to do the convoluted three-button BS. A lot of companies and models are doing this, but it still isn't good. In addition to needing to fiddle with press-and-hold times while cycling through music, it has actually caused me to interrupt and miss calls. For example, try hanging up a call but miss the timing slightly and now you've muted the headset. Next call comes in, and now I'm fumbling around with controls trying to answer in time. It's cost me a couple calls now. I have to go back and re-read the directions to see how to prevent this, but I shouldn't have to. ONE additional button would make this thing 10X more user friendly. Three more buttons (again, there is plenty of room - a whole second half of the device) would make the thing cheerfully easy to use.
2) NO CABLE MANAGEMENT - Again, this is a cop-out that a lot of models and companies are doing, but there is no reason not to throw a clip or magnet in SOMEWHERE. I Chose the Method because the earbud wires come from the center of the collar and therefore have less room to dangle/catch on things when they hang down. They still hang enough to be troublesome and I'm sure that the razor-thin wires will get snagged and ripped when I try to pull a pen from my pocket or lean in to a water fountain or something stupid. There is a clip in the back to hold the wires for storage, but nothing to keep the earbud wires from flailing about during normal wear.
3) Comfort is lacking. They are more comfortable than some models I've tried, but the dangling earbuds and the snug collar will not let you forget it is there. It is a bit like wearing a turtleneck sweater - it isn't necessarily UNcomfortable, but you'll never forget it's there and on occasion it can get really annoying.
4) Skullcandy's special flamboyant gummy earbuds, in addition to being gaudy (seriously, S.C. DOES know ADULTS buy these on occasion, right?), collect dust and dirt at an alarming rate. They DO stay in the ears and create a great seal as advertised, but that tackiness just loves to accumulate crumbs and dust and such. Combined with the fact that the wires dangle on the chest, these earbud tips are an ear infection waiting to happen. Don't eat crackers or work in a dusty environment and then put the earbuds in without checking them first. If they solved the cable management issue, this would be much less of a problem. With cable management, they might be a positive. Fortunately, third-party earbud tips are readily available and cheap.
Now for the good things:
1) They sound remarkably good. I've had Motorolas, Jaybirds, and Jawbras in the past, and SkullCandy puts them to shame in terms of sound quality. These are the best sounding bluetooth headphones I've used by a mile - with one minor caveat. These earbuds strongly favor lows and bass. I don't know WHY ON EARTH that is such a popular thing to do (too much bass is like pouring BBQ sauce on a perfectly cooked filet or ribeye - it's gross, ruins any flavor or subtlety and is insulting to the cook/artist). Fortunately, some tweaks to my EQ settings and I was able to overcome this obnoxious sound profile and the headset sounds wonderful with reasonably clear and articulate mids and highs. A flat sound profile does not work with this headset AT ALL unless you listen exclusively to budget dubstep or are completely clueless about music.
2) The tight-fitted neckband and over-sticky earbud tips result in a device that stays in place and doesn't flop about or fall off. The earbuds stay in the ears and neckband stays on the neck despite rigorous activity or awkward positions. The Method is marketed primarily as an exercise/sporting headset, and Skull did a very good job of meeting the movement requirements.
3) Call quality was very good. Once in a while when calling a land line I noticed the other end sounded a bit boxy, but everything was perfectly understandable. Those whom I've called have complimented the sound quality and mentioned that the Method's pick up less background noise than other headsets I've used. It seems that the mic is well-tuned for making calls.
I wear earbuds for long periods and use them for hands-free calling in the car and music while working. If you're like me, a different model would be better (the smoking buds, maybe? IDK). If you often go to the gym, are exceptionally active, or if you wear the headset for short periods, the Method is a good choice.
UPDATE: 1. will not work for most highway motorcycle applications without the band blowing back off the neck. I tested it up to 120 mph and around 60 with the air resistance, it does pretty poorly at staying around the neck. It wasn't designed for that speed of riding however, so I don't discredit them. In the mean time, I will stick to the wired buds like before.
2. The thing skips a lot sometimes with the phone in the back pocket, when riding and when walking.
3. Working out even when getting sweaty didn't seem to be an issue. I will test more extensive upright sweating tests later because I am lazy today.
Range: at least 20ft through an apartment with wall in between
Highs: sound generally clear, better than wired Method ear buds
Lows: deep depending on the song. They aren't amazing but it is good of course. I am satisfied and the bass is almost equal if not less than that of the wired.
comfort: fair, need to get used to it
style: when the wires are taken out entirely, they stick out to each side, looking a little silly. If you have your eyes forward you can just tuck the cable back in and it is discreet, looks good.
controls: all I know is pause/play, and volume up and down. very simple as the picture shows. I will learn the skips forward backwards later.
durability: very bendy, watch a youtube review, it's pretty cool!
Waterproofness: have not tested
battery life: have not tested
charge speed: have not tested
Tested with Rocket player unlocked on android 6.1 or whatever is latest at time of this post.
I started with the wired methods, and moved to these for motorcycle riding. First impressions are good. Decent bass lows, I tested "Down in the DM", "Moolah", "Black Beatles", and "No type" for bass. I maxed out both volumes on Samsung GS7 and the device and it is fairly loud. I think if you accidentally turned it all the way up you wouldn't crash on a bike but it would irritate you of course. For the hearing impaired, it is fair but not SUPER loud volume.
As for higher range, I tested the clarity with "sleepless" by flume. With the volume down it sounds pretty clear, but a little distortion is expected with volume all the way up (very minor clipping only those with gifted ears can hear clearly). It is not super clear and clean treble but it is just as good as all the other premium skull candy products, but then again I did not test FLAC, just mp3. It is MORE clear than the method wired headphones for sure.
The microphone is way more clear than that on the wired method buds. I ended up having to unplug headphones or use SoundAbout (a paid android app) to prevent the microphone from using the headphones which was a pain. This is why I got the method wireless, for a better experience with clarity and to try out something new!
Cannot attest to the battery life or waterproofness. Supposedly this has a design flaw where sweat will drip to the end up the headphones and sit where the charger plug is. I will test this out and skullcandy will certainly reimburse me if a problem arises quickly and I did not abuse my headphones. I will just do running (upright positioning, and push ups/situps (horizontal positioning) to test how the sweat affects the headphones. Should be a fun experiment.
4 stars until I can confirm it deserves the 5th! Wish me luck.
My reason for docking an otherwise 5 star product two stars I volves a design flaw in the strip of plastic connecting the two ear buds. After a month of use, a lining came loose. This lining plugs a thin groove that hides a rigid wire that I assume adds a little strength to the flexible plastic. I thought maybe this was just a problem with this one unit, but I bought another and experienced the same flaw after about a month if use.
That is an inexcusable flaw in a Product that's sold as a premium device that I paid the full retail price for at Best Buy. I assumed it would be sturdier than the cheaper model because the packaging featured the "rugged sport" moniker. Bad assumption. I hope the manufacturer is able to fix the problem, because these are otherwise fantastic headphones.
