The Skullcandy's closed-back design produces a sound that is very dull and unexcitingWrite your own review
- Cover ears well
- keep noise at bay
- Sound lacks spaciousness and openness
The good news is that the rectangular ear pads on the Skullcandys cover your ears neatly and do a good job of keeping background noise at bay.
The trade-off is that your ears warm up quicker than normal.
Also, these Skullcandy on-ears are a shining example of how closed-back headphones can struggle. There's a real lack of spaciousness and openness to the sound.
Spin Estelle's American Boy and the tune sounds closed-in and claustrophobic. Detail and dynamics are stifled, leaving you with a very dull, unexciting sound.
