Skullcandy PLYR 1 Gaming Headset

 

The Skullcandy PLYR 1 gaming headset combines wireless performance, simulated surround sound, and flexible connectivity into a single attractive package.

Excellent sound quality. Strong bass. Optical audio passthrough. Charging base doubles as a stand for the headset when not in use

Can't offer true surround sound. Headset can feel slightly cheap compared to more high-end gaming headsets

You can't get true surround sound in headphones. This makes designing gaming headsets tricky, when directionality can offer an edge. Fortunately, while true surround sound isn't possible in a headset, you can get a passable facsimile with stereo...

Skullcandy PLYR 1 Gaming Headset

 

The Skullcandy PLYR 1 gaming headset combines wireless performance, simulated surround sound, and flexible connectivity into a single attractive package.

I played a few rounds of Team Fortress 2 with the PLYR 1, and it performed admirably. While the surround sound effect wasn’t “genuine,” it provided the slightest illusion that the Heavy firing his mini-gun behind me was actually behind me, thanks to a...

Skullcandy PLYR 1 Wireless Gaming Headset Review

 

The first game I played with Skullcandy's PLYR 1 headset was The Last of Us.That's not a point in its favor, or a knock, for that matter. Rather, it's a funny coincidence. The Last of Us is the best PlayStation 3 game I've ever played. Skullcandy's...

Sound is stellar. WOW ; Ease-of-use and PC compatibility ; Stylish and comfortable

Weird volume dial design ; Tinny treble extremes ; Snug out of the box

If you don't already own the market-leading ASTRO A50s, Skullcandy's PLYR 1 Wireless Gaming Headset is the next best thing--terrific sound, ultra-convenient, and much cheaper to boot.

All in all, these headsets only look good and sound good, but the lifespan is way too short and you need to be handling them like how you would handle eggs because they break so easily. Stage 2 of horrible experience with Skullcandy is their warranty...

Yes they sound great, yes they look good, yes the memory foam is nice on the ears, and yes they are pretty light weight plus great battery life making them awesome for long gaming sessions. But beware, it only last 2-3 months for me with just normal use

But unfortunately, all of those great things about these headsets were shortlived by the choice of materials and fastening components used in the production of the headset. You may find the negative reviews about how the earcups breaking away from the...

Great sound quality, range, battery life, and VERY comfortable (can where for 6 hours and it not hurting)

DURABILITY IS BAD. I mean wow.... When I first bought these headphones there was a slight creaking sound on the right side near the earcups but I didn't think much of it. The other day (6 months later) while just attempting to put them on my head the...

Nice but my mic broke with hardly any use

 

I went back to my G35's because of the broken mic. Its a bad design period.

Sound good, nice looking, crystal clear, long range

Ear cup design is too small. The microphone would be SO much better if it was like the SLYR's. ITs flimsy and spins around. Mine broke out of the blue

Skull-awesome!

 

I was quite surprised at the quality overall. After seeing these recommended by PCGamer, i was no disappointed. Quite happy with the purchase thusfar. I hope they continue to work.

Excellent range, construction, and especially sound with the optical option. Comfortable, and nice looking

None so far

Poor Quality, Made to fail product

 

Great sound, great signal coverage, can move across rooms with ease without distortion

Poor quality, cup material cannot be removed to wash it. I bought this in September 2013 and the left air piece broke off. it broke off just where the 3 screw hold the cup into the headset. The screws go into little plastic pillars that have no cross...
