These earbuds are comfortable and have good noise-cancelling properties -- you can hear very little external sound when playing music at a comfortable volume. However, the battery life is anemic (< 3 hours of continuous listening on a full charge) and they sometimes produce an annoying high-pitched ring when listening to podcasts, specifically. Also, only the left earbud can be paired individually. The right earbud only works if the left is also paired.
I have a pair and I would like to add that you cant pair the right earbud without pairing the left but you can pair the left without the right so if you loose the left your done.
LESS than 3 hour charge.
AND people with sensitive hearing will be driven to near madness after one (my left,) then right developed a high pitched ringing. If anyone knows of a way to get rid of it, PLEASE share.
Instructions are nice ONLY in that they give illustrations of each function...getting them to work is another thing.
Case lid is nice and tight, but clacks shut annoyingly easy, and louder than you'd think.
I knew I should've taken the time to look at reviews.
Don't waste your money. After two weeks, one of the buds would simply not charge anymore. Was told at the store that there was no refund, also. Besides, sound is not good at all.
no / 80 bucks not worth / only works on iphn / laptop souns sucks / flickering while listening sound on laptop. 1 out 5. i had ifrogs for 40 bucks for 3 years worked like charm half the price double the sound. i am pissed cant return due to covid situation. not happy i am stuck with them. sorry skull dis appointed.
I got a pair of these for Christmas. I love them. They really don't move at all when you're bouncing around. The sound quality is pretty good, especially for someone who's never been able to afford a pair of high end head phones. The battery life is truly the only sticking point. I work in 4 hour parts of the day so it really sucks to have to stop and charge my headphones and break my momentum. The case battery doesn't bother me at all though, I keep the case plugged in my car so it's almost always full. I got mine for $40 bucks, definitely worth it.
With the looks, the fit and the performance of this earbuds it's more than expected and it will not hurt your finances.
The only downside of these earbuds are it's battery life.
3hrs playtime 3 time overpriced (well seriously even 20$ oem/chinese noname brand TWS earbuds have more than that ) and the most hilarious is Skullcandy write on the product pages "hours (and hours) of power." as if they are proud of the ridicule 10hrs of total playtime of 3hrs plus 7hrs with the case (seriously wtf? why 7hrs for the case and not a multiple of 3 like 6 or even, let's be wild, 9hrs for 12hrs, !!! woaaahhh!!! of total playtime )
at the same price i had a Sudio Tolv, a little smaller (not much) but 35hrs total (7hrs on a single charge and 5 time more with the case ), granted they are usually 119$ (well for 3.5 time more playtime i'd say "worth it"), nonetheless i see them quite often at 59$.
RC255, 11 Nov 2019$60 with audio delay? No thanks. I'll stick to my $25 QCY T2s with no delay and excellent sound. I have them too, just perfect thing
daniel, 12 Nov 2019Nothing Can Beat Sabbat E12 Ultra for 60$ Aptx, Wireless Charge, USB C,8 Hour Buds Battery Li... moreI am sure that Xiaomi/Redmi Air dots, that cost less than half of 60, will do it
Even LyperTek Tevi is also good alternative. With clear voice , decent soundstage, not too overpowering base ( depends on preference). Mic is a good quality with clear sound for both party. Battery capacity of case & earbud is very good under normal use such as less than 50% volume. USB type c, aptx, ipx7 rating.
Nothing Can Beat Sabbat E12 Ultra for 60$
Aptx, Wireless Charge, USB C,8 Hour Buds Battery Life and 32 Hour With The Case
Sound Quality And Bass It's In Another Level!
For the best budget earbuds, nothing beats the Xiaomi Haylou GT1 and its Pro version.
For 1/3 the price of this SkullCandy earbuds, it almost has, and does everything the Sesh could manage. Yes, it also has water protection! IPX5 perhaps isn't as good, but that has to be such a stupid thing to drop the earbuds on dust.
Battery life is amazing too. I'm constantly using the earbuds for 3 straight hours and I still have 25% battery left. Plug it back to its charging case (not connected to a charger) and it's back to full juice once again.
Creative Outlier Air is better with 10h single charge an Outlier Gold with 14h single charge - you have no idea how convenient is long battery life in travel or just watching something - do not think about charging
they look exactly like those 30$ nonames earbuds that you can buy on ebay/aliexpress but they just have skullcandy logo on them... they have the same spec, the same battery life, the same case, even the seams from plastic molding are the same.
So why bother with spending 30$ more? If the work and look the same?
