These headphones are an excellent bargain. I have been using the same pair for almost two years. I bought two pairs thinking they would break quickly like other brand subwoofer headphones I have previously used. Thankfully, they have proven very durable despite my dropping them while still plugged in many times. Once you use these for gaming or music, it is hard to go back. It's like being in a car with a nice subwoofer.
They are worth the money you will pay on Amazon. They do look and feel cheap, but I still think they will last. Their sound is average at best without the subwoofer........very little bass.
The subwoofer does a lot for the sound. They really do more than vibrate.......they really give good quality bass.
The problem is the high end and midrange is lacking and a bit subdued. If you like rock or hiphop, or if you use it for gaming, this will be a really good headphone and a good buy. But these are not audiophile high end headphones by any means. Though I kept the Skull Crushers, I decided to upgrade to the Grado SR-60's for another $30. They were worth the cost and are the best deal for the money. I just depends on what you are looking for in a headphone and how much you can afford to and want to spend.
Now I'm having this Skullcandy Crushers and I love it! This is what I summarize my feedback to the headphone:
What I like:
1) The bass amplify is really good even I haven't turn on the subwoofer vibration.
2) With the subwoofer vibration on, this headphone really rocks right into your head. The sound is solid and clear (not like some of the headphone emphasizes great bass but music come out blur and distorted by the 'strong' bass.
3) Very comfortable and won't hurt your ears after long hours of using.
4) Personally I like the skull icon, looks cool and the leatherette pouch gets another credit.
5) Comes with airline adaptor jack and 1/4" stereo adaptor jack, so that I can use it on flight or playing guitar.
6) With the quality of this and the price of $35, what else can you ask for?!
What I dislike:
1) Material is a little "cheap"
2) The middle joint of the headphone looks easy to fall apart, though mine is still good, I have to "handle it with care". (but I think it happens to most of the other headphones, even the expensive ones, check other review)
3) It would be better if they can make the subwoofer control a little smaller.
That's it. All the dislikes, I'd deduct half star on the rating. But this headphone worths it. If you are not a pro and just want to enjoy movies, games, music, etc. at home. Skullcandy Crushers won't disappoint you.
Review: I'm a musician whos primary instrument is Bass Guitar. I owned a pair of Skullcandy SCS-SC's (Green, first model) about three years ago and used them primarily for listening sessions via direct amp connection. I also compose Digital Tracks using studio software on my laptop. I wasn't expecting much in the way of sound quality, but I was curious about the built in subwoofer. Surprisingly, the sound was actually pretty decent. The build in subwoofer was as advertised, delivering a major kick to the lows of my bass guitar and digital dance tracks. The mids and highs weren't lacking either, and all around, I was unexpectedly surprised. As far as the physical design of the Skullcrushers, my inital impression was poor. They look and feel incredibly cheap. The attention to fit and finish is lacking, and the inline subwoofer controller literally looked like it was pieced together with crazy glue. Again, surprisingly, they actually managed to hold up for three years despite the cheap design (although to be honest, I do not use them for portable listening and tend to take good care of my electronics). Recently, my pair was stolen along with some other stuff, which brought me back online to purchase another. My purchase price was $49.42 (in store) in 2005. I just ordered another pair for $50 (including shipping). I expected to find them for much cheaper, but I guess the demand is still strong. I also owned a pair of Skullcandy Ink'd buds, which I would probably recommend for portable listening (strong bass, compact design, gold plated plug etc).Read more ›
