• Skullcandy 50/50
Our Verdict 
Plump bass spoils a vigorous performance
Choice of colour
powerful bass
Lack subtlety and composure
Reviewed on

Skullcandy's website might lead you to believe it’s preoccupied with courting the ‘yoof’ demographic, but in practice these 50/50 in-ears will appeal to anyone in the market for a well-made, exciting-sounding and comfortable pair of ’phones.

There’s a caveat, of course: a rather lop-sided sound does for the 50/50s. It’s plumply bass-heavy, exerting a squeeze on the otherwise enjoyable midrange.

There’s danger at the top of the frequency range too, where over-keen recordings can provoke splashiness and glare.

A pity, because the 50/50s are an engaging listen with the drive and attack to make the most of up-tempo recordings.
