Skullcandy 50/50

 

Skullcandy is no stranger to iPhone-friendly earphones, like the iPhone FMJ ($79.95, ), and the manufacturer's latest model is geared toward bass lovers on a budget. The flashy $49.95 (list) Skullcandy 50/50 is marketed as featuring "grinding bass,"...

Affordable. Deep bass response. Secure fit. Some passive noise reduction. Built-in iPhone/iPod controls

Bold design is not for everyone. Although secure, earpieces may need to be adjusted to improve audio performance

Priced at just under $50, Skullcandy's 50/50 earphones are a solid low-cost choice for extreme bass lovers with iPhones.

SkullCandy 50/50 Review

 

SkullCandy 50/50 is a combination earbud and microphone designed for the iPhone and iPod

The SkullCandy 50/50 headphones come in many colors, have in-line volume control for the iPod and iPhone, as well as a mic

The SkullCandy 50/50 earbuds are are decent, the overall quality of the audio can leave a bit to be desired. Also, the earbuds may not be comfortable for every user. This is normal for any in-ear headphone set. This is not a noise canceling device

Review: Skullcandy 50/50

 

If you listen to electronic music and hip-hop, or play games on your portable devices, you'll appreciate the 50/50's bass-heavy sound, especially given the reasonable price.

The 50/50 (named, according to Skullcandy, because they’re “half mic, half bud, and all boom”) comes with pairs of small, medium, and large rubber eartips, as well as a circular, black-nylon carrying case. The 50/50’s earpieces are primarly white...

The fact that Skullcandy describes its products as the "sickest" headphones around should give you some idea of the target audience. The brand offers a huge range of headphones and earphones with the emphasis firmly on the cool aesthetics. But, is it a...

Cool design, comfortable, in-line remote, excellent bass, carry case

Slightly pricey, audio could be better

A comfy, lightweight pair of earphones with fantastic low-level response, but overall audio performance could be better

Skullcandy 50/50 review

 

A quick refresher: canalbuds such as the Skullcandy 50/50 are headphones that in essence split the difference - in design, and often in price - between traditional earbuds and in-ear-canal (“canalphone”) models. Since they fit partially in the ear...

Despite finding its bass to be often overwhelming, we think the Skullcandy 50/50 is a nice headset for certain audiences. We know there are plenty of listeners out there - particularly those who listen to electronic music and hip-hop, and those who...

Skullcandy 50/50 review

 

Until recently I hadn't paid much attention to Skullcandy's headphones and headsets. The company's focus on extreme sports, punk- and hip-hop-inspired aesthetics, and too-clever product names (case in point: “Smokin' Buds”) suggested I might not be in...

Skullcandy 50/50 earbuds (white green)

 

First and foremost, I don't consider myself an audiophile but I love my bass, so if you're looking to upgrade from stock earphones with a little more bass, look no further. I compared the 50/50 Skullcandy with some stock skullcandys I bought from...

Bass is clear and present

Bass is definitely there, but not clearly defined

Skullcandy 50/50 earbuds (white green)

 

The durability seems fine too me and the wire is also a bit longer than usual which is a pro for me at least. I would suggest to buy these if you don't want to spend more than 50$. Even if you are trying to spend 100$ i would say save 50$ until you...

these headphones have the best sound i have tried under 80$, i tried zag buds, i phone head phones but the bass which is produced by these ear buds in just unbelievable and as well as the sound quality

there was nothing really i did not liked but it can be really loud for some users

Skullcandy 50/50 earbuds (white green)

 

I like these earbuds alot. They come with the earbuds (of course), a small case and 2 other comfort tip sizes (Large and Small). I got these the other day and they are pretty sweet. Good for the price at $50. They are very clear sounding and have a lot...

Nice Sound

Fitting

Consumer review by:

Simple headphones with great quality sound

 

Earphones have great quality sound and come in a variety of colors. On the down side they a a little pricey and they fall out of the ear easily if you don't have a snug fit. For the most part they are easy to use/wear.This product has... Fall out of...

Sound quality is excellent

A little on the expensive side
