Top customer reviews
In the box are the earbuds, a removable flexible collar, a micro USB charging cable, and a second set of silicone tips. The earbuds are slightly angled in towards the ear, which gives them a snug, comfortable fit and makes them super easy to slip in and out. The flat cable is tangle-free, but kind of long, and after 6 months of sweating and throwing the buds in my bag, I’ve noticed some yellow discoloration on the cable. While there’s no advertised sweat or water proofing on these buds, the discoloration is not crazy noticeable, and overall, the buds feel very well built.
The sound quality on the Smokin' Buds is pretty good, but far from accurate. Like most other Skullcandy headphones, the bass is emphasized, with deep and punchy, distortion-free output at loud volumes. The mids are present, but kind of muddy. The high trebles can be problematic on certain trax, with hi hats, cymbals and snares sometimes sounding over-compressed to the point of crispy, bitcrush style distortion. While headphones like the Apple earpods have a warm overall sound, the Smokin' Buds are more on the metallic side. Overall, I’m typically partial to earbuds with an exaggerated, boomy sound, which these buds definitely deliver, especially on bass heavy rap and electronic music.
Pairing the Smokin' Buds to my iPhone via Bluetooth is easy and the connection is pretty stable within a 20 to 25 foot range. You hear a pleasant tri-tone beep when the buds are powered on and off, or connected and disconnected from your device. It almost always automatically re-connects to my phone when they’re powered on, though occasionally I’ve had to re-pair the device manually.
Battery life is advertised at a decent 6 hours on a single charge. I’ve been able to get about 4-5 hours of solid use in before an annoying low battery beep starts interrupting the music every few minutes when the buds reach about 30% remaining battery life. Luckily, charging is super quick via USB, and usually takes under an hour to get back to 100%.
The Smokin' Buds have decent-sounding bluetooth phone call capabilities using a built-in mic on the mic3 controls. These 3 buttons also allow you to answer or hang up phone calls, increase or decrease music volume, play/pause, and skip tracks by long pressing the plus and minus buttons. Skipping tracks is a bit annoying because you have to hold down on the plus and minus buttons for 5 seconds, which is way too long, in my opinion. # first world problems
My biggest complaint with these buds is the battery pack design. It’s lightweight, but it rests on the back of your neck and shifts easily from side to side during a workout, tugging on the buds in your ear. The included flexible collar keeps the battery and earbuds in place, but I really don’t like having a giant piece of plastic on my neck, especially when I’m sweating. There’s a tiny cable management attachment on the left side of the cable, which is helpful for keeping the buds around your neck without tugging, but the design is somewhat awkward.
Overall, I really enjoy the boomy sound quality and tough build of the Smokin' Buds. They’re super reliable and comfortable to wear, and they are one of the best contenders in the $50 and below wireless earbuds market today.
I have had these 1 year now and their still going strong...only gripe is the battery is dying faster lately but overall Still a great set !
I have a job that allows me to wear headphones for my ENTIRE shift. Lucky me , lucky them. I have had a few cheaper brands of Bluetooth headphones. They are generally sub par so I was hoping that these Skull Candy brand ones would be good. I have been using these since November and I am mostly very happy. When you consider most wired or Bluetooth headphone give out by the 3 month mark these are pretty durable. I have the White and I reccomend NOT getting the White. It gets grimy quickly and it's pretty difficult to keep clean.
Build Quality and Design
Pretty good for this price. The cables are thick and the flat wire type. The buds stay in good. I have a very physical job and they NEVER fall out. The rubber end pieces stay on! It comes with few extras but I have only lost one in the months I have had these. These DO NOT block out sounds. I can hear people around me easily. I work in environment where I need to hear others. If your looking for deep sound blocking these are not for you. I mostly listen to audio books and podcasts. These sound " like SKULL CANDY HEADPHONES" If you have ever tried the mid range wired Skull candy headphones and like them you will like the audio experience with these. Very clear , crisp and not too bass heavy. The extra money your paying over a wired set is just for the Bluetooth feature , it does not seem like the extra bucks goes toward an upgraded audio experience.
The design is a bit weird... That funny collar part holds the components and the battery. That piece ( when removed from the collar) is about 2 inches long and a little heavy. If you take it out of the collar It can slip back on your neck pulling your buds out of your ears. It could be easily lost. The collar can be felt while your wearing them. You will get used to it but you always know it's there. I like that feeling because I have lost other Bluetooth sets when they slipped off my neck without me noticing. There is a little clip that holds the wires together if you have the buds out. Basically keep the collar on this unit.
Battery life is quoted as 6 hours. Honestly I get more like 7 hours and I am a hard user. It warns you with a series of beeps that battery is getting lower . You generally have at least 10 minutes left of power when it starts beeping. It charges quick.
I just want to mention that because of the placement of the charging port you CAN wear and use these while you are charging them. I use a portable battery pack in my pocket. They lose the connection when you start charging but you can simply restart the Bluetooth connection. There is a light on the headset it flashes blue while these are in use and red when charging. It is visible to others ( only at a certain angle) when you are wearing the headphones. I always have a hoodie on but if my hoodie is off the light could be seen. It's not flashing like a loony siren but it could be seen.
In my experience the Bluetooth connection has been excellent. It take a bit of practice to get the button press just right but once connected it's strong. I connect to two different devices at once. I connect to an iPad mini 4 and a MOTO G cellphone at the same time. It switches effortlessly from my cellphone calls right back into audio books on my iPad . Call quality has been great. I literally blab for hours with zero issues. This is one of the best headphone mic set ups I have ever used.
I'm a fan ! If these broke right now I would purchase the same set over again. They include a year warranty but I made the fool mistake of purchasing from an eBay seller that was not an authorized dealer so no warranty for me.
Overall, if your looking for a nice , reasonably priced set of Bluetooth buds you can't go wrong with these...just don't get the white.
On all three accounts these worked out well, the fit is snug (comes with two earbud size options, I may switch to the smaller here in a bit), sound is actually pretty good, don't get as loud as wired headphones but that is to be expected (at least as my research tells me), and price was as advertised.
Happy with this purchase, good quality for good value.
