Skullcandy Hesh review

Available in a wide range of finishes, but need to deliver more energy Tested at £48

Our Verdict

Firm-fitting with an inoffensive sound and but they need to deliver more punch

For

  • Well-fitting
  • inoffensive

Against

  • Need to deliver more energy
  • no mic

These solid, firm-fitting headphones are available in a wide selection of finishes.

An inline volume control is provided, but there’s no mic or extra controls for taking calls from a smartphone.

Sonically, the Skullcandy HESHs are relatively inoffensive, but they could do with a greater level of zip and energy to their delivery.
