Review: Skullcandy 50/50

 

We tested two models from Skullcandy, the 50/50s and the Fix. These 50/50s, the cheaper of the two, are sort of half way between in-ear...

Good bass response when you get the seal correct. Wrapped cable makes for easy storing and helps cut down on cable noise

The skull detailing is the brand’s signature flourish, but man, it made me feel like 13-year old emo skater kid. Persistent static drone is irritating

Skullcandy 50/50 earbuds review

 

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

 

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

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.

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

 

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...

tuff on the ear canals

 

If i ever find my last pair of ear buds, I will switch out the rubber caps, till than I am stuck using the iPhone buds. For these issues, I only feel the reason these are worth $15 to $20, definitely not $50. So if you have some old comfy mushroom buds...

Pretty much of the same from the review below, except I feel the sound is the best ive heard for buds that cost less than $100. Click and talk as the mic seem to sound as good if not better than those that come with the iPhones

Also read the review below. I've never been able to get the volume control to work. It really doesn't bother me since all I have to do is reach for my phone and adjust it there. The biggest issue if had is the rubber on the buds. The raised logo caused...
