Today were doing a review of the brand-new Skullcandy Hesh 2 wireless headphones (video review below). It’s the first set of wireless headphones Skullcandy has ever released.
They are Bluetooth and so they will work with any device that has Bluetooth.
It comes with accessories such as cable if you want to use a wired connection it also has the clicker so it can pause, stop, play, set the volume up and down, skip tracks and so on.
The next accessory is common with wireless headphones now. It is the USB charging cable that can be plugged in to charge headphones.
It also comes with a small pouch to help hold everything. The pouch is not made to protect the headphones but meant to be a carrying case. One of the good things about buying from Skullcandy is their warranty so if anything does go wrong within a year or breaks that are easily replaced.
The box states that they have 15 hours of battery life although this hasn’t been fully tested and has been tested by us up to 10 hours
The headphones themselves at a glance look just like the other non-wireless Skullcandy Hesh 2 headphones.
As far as the build quality Skullcandy has been some improvements over the original. The ear cups on the original were made in the leather quality material which made them very stiff so they had no give at all, and this made them feel tight when placed on your head.
These new sets have a different leather material that are almost reminiscent of what is on the Beats Pros. The stitching is well done and also has plenty of give which adds to a much softer feel.
The top of the headset has been built with a give so they can be twisted and moved about without breaking and also adds to comfort when in motion.
As far as flash they really keep it on the down low for the most part, while it does say Skullcandy across the top it is in black the same color as the headphones themselves. They do have a chrome ring around the earpieces like an earlier styles, and of course the Skullcandy skull logo on the side.
The controls are easily managed, after holding down the Bluetooth button they flash initially and after this only occasionally showing it is connected.
Next to the power button is the mic button you can answer and receive calls easily while working out or whenever wearing them.
Skullcandy sound has always had a warm sound to their headphones and is no different with these. The sound is the same in both Bluetooth mode and wireless mode.
Since these look just like the non-wireless model be sure they say wireless and have the Bluetooth logo if you buy a set.
