Heavy

Heavy:
"Sound great but it is very heavy and uncomfortable."
_
"The quality is fantastic on these with bass that's not too heavy and clear vocals."
_
"Good sound and volume, heavy duty cord that is apparently replaceable (it detaches from the headphones)."
_
"Skull candy out of the box just worked and worked well they are a wee heavy but the interchangeable cord and a good player more than negate the weight (android I use power amp ) Apple well just the stock but with a few tweaks(player with an eq) to tame the bass or crank it up these headphones well out pace the Beats and all aforementioned."
_
"Sound great but it is very heavy and uncomfortable."
_
"It has a decent sound quality for the price range, even though I'm not a big fan (due to the kind of music I listen) I think it's worth to mention that the bass tones have a punch that are perfect to listen music with heavy bass usage."

"its comfortable and it isnt heavy, good one to take it traveling around."

Listening

Listening:
"This is great if you are listening, not so great if you are trying to get someone's attention that has them on."
_
":::: Comfort ::::These headphones fit tightly, which I like overall, but combined with the on-ear design makes them somewhat uncomfortable for extended listening."
_
"Strong bass seems like it might exacerbate the issue for bespectacled folk like myself, though, since having the side parts of the frames pressed between one's ear and one's head does get uncomfortable after a bit, even while listening to tunes on the lighter side of things without heavy bass vibrations, although I admit to not having tested this while I had the headphones."
_
"They are awesome in the winter because they act like ear muffs and keep your listening devices nice and warm, summer on the other hand kills me as you will be dripping sweaty and just feeling unpleasant."
_
"It's still there but I personally love listening to the percussion especially when I'm listening to someone like Between the Buried and Me or the Faceless."
_
"She pulled up her Spotify and began listening, and the look on her face told me that I had done well."
_
"Also unlike decent headphones, EVERYONE around you can hear the music youre listening to almost as well as you can hear it yourself, so expect stares when youre wearing these."

Material

Material:
"As well the material on the cushions are not well applied as if sometimes seems as if it's going to come undone from the cushion itself."
_
"Plus, they look cool, and the particular pair I bought has a fabric coating on the headband, which seems to help my hair to not get tangled (which has been a problem with other materials)I listen to these with pandora radio on my phone, and I listen to other things on my pc as well, and I find that instrumental music, ost video game soundtracks, classical, spanish guitar, flamenco, vocal, indiepop and electronica sound fantastic & clean, whereas some of the pop rock songs with a million things going on at once start sounding a little... muddy, I guess is the word."
_
"Compared to the G230, these are junk--cheap materials, small earcups, poor design--and it's more expensive."
_
"On top of the headband, the material is felt so I can get dirty quick so I use the travel bag often when I'm done using them."
_
"They send my other headphone, but i buyed in other side one for my wife, she love it, is good material but not great, sound nice but not awesome."
_
"Great packing materials."
_
"Really good sound, block some amount of noise, nice material and excellent price."
_
"They look great, and the material feels good to touch."
_
"- The leather material for the earcups are fairly comfortable, but I can guarantee that if you keep them on for a long period of time you're going to take them off to rub out your ear for a few seconds- The build is a cheap plastic but is still fairly durable."
_
"Materials: Compared to the last Hesh headphones, a nice leap forward into better quality and overall better design."

_
"Pros -Bought it for less than 20$.Good surround effectLight weightDetachable cord ( not sure why that provision tho)Cons -The little button for mic is confusing."
_
"Anyways, the only problem with these is that there is no mic included."
_

Music

Music:
"just got them like 2 months ago don't even use them a lot and one of the sides is dead only can hear music out of the right ear, I want my money back! "
_
"Allow me to lay it out for you:Pros:* Some video games sound GREAT on it (Skyrim)* Netflix movies sounded OK on themCons:* Anything that wasn't Netflix or a very modern video game sounded like garbage, was almost inaudible or was missing parts of the music."
_
"If I have any criticism on the sound, it would be in the mid-range which for most of the music I prefer (Alt Rock, Indie, Classical); it tends to be ideal."
_
"If you are a listener of classical music, these won't satisfy you."
_
"I have big ears, and they can get uncomfortable after too many hours of music or audiobooks."
_
"I've gone through pretty much every genre of music through these things, and unfortunately, they all sound washed out."
_
"They look really nice was happy when I got them until I started to play music only one side of the headphones works...."
_
"Besides that, the music quality is fantastic."
_
"All in all these things are worth every penny and if you like different types of music they are a good buy because everything that comes out of these sounds really good."
_
"Did i mention how comfortable it was and this would suit a person who loves to listen to music to block out the world."
_
"I mean I don't consider myself an audiophile but I do like to listen to my music on a decent pair of headphones and these fit the bill."

Noise

Noise:
"Pros:Huge driversAmazing sound qualityRemovable line inBuilt to lastComfortablePassive noise cancelationCons:Headphones do not play nicely with glasses (they squeeze them)Makes you look like a CybermanDoes require a bit more power to run them because the drivers are quite largeOverall, I can't find a honest reason to gripe about them because there simply is nothing to gripe about."
_
"I had the volume turned up to a comfortable level and no one around me complained about the noise."
_
"Beware, however, that the noise canceling will make them deaf to you."
_
"The plastic is a bit cheap, and the noise isolation is not the best, but still good enough for the price."
_
"In that sense, they're good at cancelling out noise around you, but not good at keeping the sound from leaking out."
_
"ok i have sensitive hearing, i dont know about technical advise or anything but ill tell you my perspective as a regular person with good hearingnow i own a bose quite comfort 3 (thats a 350$ headphone FYI), i HATE THEM, the crush my ears, the dont make good sound, and the noise canceling cancels the MUSIC you listen to."
_
"Perfect noise cancellation."
_
"Great sound and noise cancellation."
_
"These headphones are pretty good at cutting off outside noise and make decent sound, but the cord they come with gets kinked."
_
"They work really well, and block out probably 70% of the background noise."
_
"Does a great job of cancelling noise very happy"

Packaging

Packaging:
"The packaging was sturdy so I had no worries about the product being damaged."
_
"I enjoy the sharp clarity,plenty songs (and Streamed Movies) sound perfect when the connection isn't buffering, I've even been able to doze off w o worrying whether they'd break, they're sturdy enough(Which isn't to say you can abuse them, but they're)I wasn't exactly pleased with the packagings condition when it arrived, the saving grace was that there was no scratch nor anything damaging to the product per se, I still find the bag it came with rather cool."
_
"The inline controller was broken in the packaging."
_
"packaged for product protection,nothing damaged or broken."

Price

Price:
"Not the best headphones in the world, but they're good for the price."
_
"I'd say the only downfall of these are that they are very rounded and give you the double-bun look on your head and they aren't as good as some, but, especially for the price, they are great, great, great headphones."
_
"These headphones aren't even the top of the line, but their amazing quality has invigorated an apathetic part of me that was caused by a lifetime of cheap speakers producing crappy sound."
_
"With thunderous bass and crisp clean highs for a sub 50 set of headphones you cannot beat these, I am not a audiophile nor will I bore you with facts figures or decibels or wow you with the virtues of spending ridiculous amounts of money for style and to be the cool kid ."
_
"For the price I didn't expect them to be the best."
_
"Its not the absolute best, but considering the price its still really good!"
_
"and she is happy because she told me what kind she liked and i found them here at a decent price, Just glad I found before they Discontinued making them."
_
"Great price! "
_
"These may not be wireless or have a giant name behind them but sound great for a third of a price of bigger brands."
_
"For the price, it was average at best."
_
"You won't be too disappointed especially at the price point, but you may think twice in the long run."

Quality

Quality:
"For them to only stay intact for 2 1 2 months is not good quality."
_
"Sound quality is affected by style of headphones the leakage is very disappointing"
_
"However, the sound quality isn't as great as you'd expect for such bulky headphones."
_
"Perhaps the quality isn't as good as something like Bose, but the sound is good enough for most purposes, and the price is significantly cheaper."
_
"Sound is amazing, good quality, but heres some problems: when I got my pair, they looked a tad bit beat up, they had scratches, paint peeling off, and a different auxiliary cord than what Skullcandy would give you."
_
"Horrible quality!"
_
"The sound quality is great, nice stereo, and the bass is defined but not overbearing."

Range

Range:
"The sound quality if your looking for base isn't high in the slightest but if you want crisp highs and an amazing middle range these are great."
_
"If you personally don't mind having super bass and looking for quality headphones that are durable and comfortable in this price range the Skullcandy Hesh 2's are a great option."
_
"If you are an audiophile and enjoy a full range of frequencies then AVOID THESE HEADPHONES!"
_
"It has a decent sound quality for the price range, even though I'm not a big fan (due to the kind of music I listen) I think it's worth to mention that the bass tones have a punch that are perfect to listen music with heavy bass usage."

Size

Size:
"I have fairly small ears, and these would not comfortable cover the tops or bottoms of my ears."

_
"Compared to the G230, these are junk--cheap materials, small earcups, poor design--and it's more expensive."
_
"Very dissapointing sound and bass for those size speakers."
_
"But, I guess I have one of those weird perfectly round small heads, so its good to go try different brands on to make sure."
_
"The graphics under the head band in the picture are not on the headphones, instead it is a matching solid green stripe, but only a small problem."
_
"In addition, I thought these were kind of enormous (bought them for my young teen daughter because she asked for them, but I thought they looked silly because of their size) as well as cheap feeling."
_
"The detachable cable is nice and the plug is small so you won't have to take off your phone or tablet case to plug it in."
_
"Out of the box they look quite small, but they easily fit over your ears."
_
"The apparently poofy ear muffs are too small, too tight, and pinch instead of comfort your ears."
_
"The only reason i didnt give them five stars was because my ears would over heat the ear paddings (you know because we are warm blooded mammals ) after 4-6 hours of continues playing so now i decide pause my studying for a small well deserve break."

Volume

Volume:
"Very disappointed because the maximum volume is very low"
_
"The sound, at pretty much every volume was weak, seemed distant and distorted."
_
"Unless the volume is almost all the way up, the headphones aren't good at blocking sound, even in a quiet classroom."
_
"The bass was weak and empty, The Headphone volume isn't as loud as my titan ear buds."
_
"They only have one problem, the mic will not adjust volume."
_
"Cord volume control was broken- volume control piece was broken off and found on the bottom of the box."
_
"I purchased these a while ago about 4 months or so, the 8 bit design I revived these and was eager to try them out so I plugged in the cord and put on some music the music was coming out in bits so I had to turn the jack around a certain way to get full soundThen I tried noise cancellation and leakage noise cancel action almost non and you could share the music with your pal right across from you with volume at 60%But I will give credit they are extremely durable except the ear muff it occasionally falls out and is extremely hard to put back in."
_
"But, I wish skull candy made them a bit more sound proof...I've noticed that the sound leaks quite a bit and even at the lowest possible volume, it was very easy to hear the sound from the outside."
_
"But the head phone leaks a good amount of sound when the volume us set up to 60-70%."
_
"Good sound and volume, heavy duty cord that is apparently replaceable (it detaches from the headphones)."
_
"As far as cancelling out the sound of outside noise is concerned, these will get the job done if you're the type of person that likes to crank the volume of your MP3 player up pretty high."
