What’s up guys? I will be reviewing the Skullcandy Hesh 3 wireless headphones. The price point is kind of like an in-between spot it’s not too expensive but it’s not cheap either. So, in this review I’m going to go over all the pros and cons in case you’re interested in picking these headphones. I’ll tell you if it’s worth it.
First of all, the thing that really struck me was just that how simple and plain they are, and I really like that there is no crazy graphics or colors on the headphones. It’s so minimal for a wireless pair of headphones there is only three buttons.
On its backside of the right ear cup of the Hesh 3 Wireless you have your volume up and down rocker it’s embedded in
theses rubber buttons. The middle is like you play, pause, take a call, etc. Underneath that is a micro-USB port for charging it. You also have your 3.5-millimeter headphone jack on the bottom in case you want to use these wired if the battery dies. Then in the front side of the ear cup is also a little inline mic for you know like I said taking calls.
This Skullcandy wireless headphone does expand to fit larger heads. It fits nicely up top. They are just light weights with the ear cups. You have definite ample padding as well as a little of padding on the top of the headband. These are lightweight pair of headphones.
The ear cups swivel 90 degrees along the headband as well and one of the favorite things about these headphones is not only, they can lay flat on a surface or something like around your neck, but they also fold into the headband making these very portable through bringing them with you on the go.
With the sound quality, I want to mention is we do have 40-millimeter drivers here on the Hesh 3 Wireless and like I said just tons of padding on the ear cups. They do a really good job of creating like a suction and isolating and eliminating any background noise around you. These do not have an active noise canceling as some headphones do but they like I said do a good job eliminating the sound and creating a good suction.
Now let’s talk more about the sound quality that’s going to be one of the most important aspects when you’re evaluating which headphones to buy. So, talking about bass, these really shine in the mid loads of that area where you get a nice tight punch all around your music.
I listen to a bunch of things from like electronic, hip-hop stuff like that on Spotify and Apple Music. I tested a variety of songs here and really found the bass shines. Now as far as the mids and trebles are concerned I found these straight away from that flat response and thought most audio files would prefer but again these aren’t made for audio files themselves. I felt like the mids were kind of toned back and overall, I think the whole sound signature here was just tight and punchy throughout. So, with the vocals and stuff, they weren’t overly crystallized. Overall, I think favoring the bass. So, if you’re a bass head, you’re probably going to like these.
Now the next important thing is going to be the battery life and these headphones have a ratio about 22 hours listening. I tested them the whole week that pretty much held up. What really makes me happy is that they have battery quick charge technology where if you just charge these up for five minutes you get ninety minutes of battery life.
So, say you’re walking around campus or something like that you’re going on a car ride and these are dead, well charge them for five minutes and you will have an hour and a half of battery which is good. Like I mentioned earlier they include the 3.5-millimeter headphone jack so, you can also use them if the battery dies.
To recap I would say I love the design of these headphones. It is simple and minimal. It’s very lightweight and comfortable which obviously is going to be a plus to anybody who wants to wear these out getting like a headache or anything. Sound quality I thought was very good considering the price point here.
For cons the Bluetooth technology, I believe is rated for 33 feet. I found that it does have a hard time going that distance when there are walls in between. So, while it works for me no problem around my workplace but when I’m starting to go to different rooms or across the apartments it started to cut out a little, but I mean for $130 here it’s hard to complain.
They’re wireless, they look good, they sound good, I’m a fan of them so, minor cons like I mentioned in the end for that price point is not too bad. You look at the competition out there wireless pair of headphones again not a headset I’m a fan of that. I think it’s a pretty solid price. It is available in Black, Navy Blue,Grey and Red. I hope you gained something from this review. If you have, any questions please let me know below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
