I love my SkullCandy Hesh 2 headphones. They're my favorite headphones I've ever owned. They're over the ear, loud, and comfortable. However, the vinyl was deteriorating. I had to replace them.
I originally placed an order for another set of headphones, from a third party seller. They were $60 and offered a $15 off coupon discount and an additional promo code, knocking the headphones down to $15. However, the third party seller didn't want to honor the new price. I was a little bit upset. Why release promo codes and coupons, and then not honor them? Those headphones are still in stock, by the way.
I was looking for an alternative. Something similar to my beloved SkullCandy Hesh 2 headphones, basically.
These headphones popped up, underneath a section on the Home Page, of items similar to those I've recently viewed. I've never even heard of Amazon Basics. But for $20, I figured trying them out wouldn't hurt. If I didn't like them, I could always return them.
My expectations were low, but these headphones are incredible. The audio quality is amazing (Crystal clear and loud.), they're comfortable, they're over the ear style, and they arrived in 1 business day. For $20, they're a great purchase.
Keep in mind : I've never used top of the line DJ style headphones (Beats, for example.), but I'm sure these aren't comparable to those. But if you just want to listen to music on your phone or laptop, these Amazon Basics headphones are perfect. And all I wanted was to listen to music on my phone.
