Skullcandy 50/50 earbuds review: Skullcandy 50/50 earbuds

 

Skullcandy has made quite a name for itself in the headphone world, thanks largely to its focus on funky fashion and its aggressive marketing tactics aimed at tweens, teens, and young adults. However, the latest Skullcandy earphones to come down the...

The Skullcandy 50/50 earbuds come in a variety of colors and offer plenty of bass. They feature an inline mic as well as playback and volume controls for the iPod/iPhone.

The clarity of the Skullcandy 50/50 earbuds isn't great, and they don't seem very durable. May not be comfortable for all users.

The Skullcandy 50/50 earbuds offer big bass and useful features for a reasonable price--just don't expect top-notch construction.

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...

Skullcandy 50/50 review

 

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...

Easy Listening

 

Earbuds have nice volume, but they are a little stiff in the ear. I feel like the metal around the edge hurts a little too much. However, the sound is really nice.

Great headphones!

 

These headphones are a great buy with a case to keep them in one spot so I don't lose them and they don't get tangled.
