The Best Skullcandy Earbuds

Updated on April 18, 2012

My Personal Review on Skullcandy Earbuds

Everybody has some type of music player, but you can't do much with it unless you have headphones or earbuds. Too many people earbuds are earbuds; differences aren't noticeable to many, but they are to me. I love music and I can't go a day without taking some time out of my day and plugging my Skullcandys and jammin' out. I know everybody has their own opinion, but here is mine.! I happen to be a skullcandy addict and I figured that I’d do a personal review on the earbuds I own, which includes the 50/50s, TiTANS, Smoking Buds, and Fix (In-Ear). These all come with a carrying case of their own by the way!

4.) Fix (In-Ear)

Price: $69.95

Speaker Diameter: 10mm

These earbuds were engineered and designed for those who are tired of their earbuds falling out all the time from the slightest tug. They are comfortable in your ear and they do seem to stay in a bit better than most other earbuds. The call-quality of these is phenomenal and the microphone works well. If you’re looking for a pair of earbuds that you can listen to music with and it sound like you’re in a studio, then these aren’t them. The bass is close to non-existent and even at 50% volume they begin to sound distorted when you’re listening to music. The noise canceling of the outside environment isn’t that great either.

Design: 7/10

Comfort: 6/10

Call Quality: 8/10

Music Quality: 3/10

Noise Canceling: 5/10

Overall: 6/10

3.) Smoking Buds

Price: $29.95


Speaker Diameter: 9mm


These earbuds have a cool, sleek look to them and they fit very comfortably inside your ear with the included interchangeable rubber pieces that come in different sizes for the best fit. They provide deep bass and you can get lost in your own world with these in your ear. They don’t have a built in microphone, so it’s not convenient to use these to talk with others on the phone. Even if you only have the volume set to 30%, you can’t hear much of your surroundings; the noise cancelling ability on these earbuds is amazing.

Design: 7/10

Comfort: 6/10

Call Quality: N/A

Music Quality: 8/10

Noise Canceling: 7/10

Overall: 7/10

2.) TiTAN

$39.95

Speaker Diameter: 11mm

Again this pair is very nice looking especially with the metal body and chrome logo. These are very similar to the Smoking Buds as far as performance and the inability to hold a conversation over the phone with them. I would say that the TiTANS provide a little better bass response and have a better noise canceling ability. I always get comments about these earbuds and always keep them with me in their case; if you don’t keep care of them the paint on the metal will begin to scrap off. Just a warning!

Design: 8/10

Comfort: 6/10

Call Quality: N/A

Music Quality: 9/10

Noise Canceling: 8/10

Overall: 8/10

1.) 50/50

$49.95


Speaker Diameter: 11mm

This earbuds have my best overall vote! They are everything you could ask for. These are the earbuds you can take with you everywhere. They look amazing and sound the same. The main reason why these are the best in my opinion is that they have the built-in microphone for phone convos and also a big driver to deliver the deep bass that we all love. No matter what, you can count on these to make you smile and provide you with everything you could possibly want from a pair of earbuds.

Design: 8/10

Comfort: 7/10

Call Quality: 8/10

Music Quality: 9/10

Noise Canceling: 8/10

Overall: 8/10

There you go! That is my personal review on these headphones from worst to best. In this case, the most expensive isn't necessarily the best; in fact, its the worst. Give these earbuds a try to I promise you won't be disappointed. Don't buy the cheap $10 ones though; those are considered disposable because they'll be trash after a few weeks. Spend the extra money to get yourself a nice pair; they'll come with a nice case, so you can keep good care of them and they'll treat you well. Thanks for reading!

      I've talked to people on the phone with my Smokin' Buds.. Worked great with my iPod touch voice control as well. The only problem I had was that after it working a few times, clicking on the mic button to change songs and so-forth was not working with my android (forgot what phone). I now have a onetouch Fierce (or whatever) through Metro PCS and the mic button doesn't do anything. Would the 5050's work on android phones?

      excluding the mic, I'd say the Titans are a much better pair. they've served me well for the past 3 years and still going strong.

      so if the mic and vol control wasn't important are the 50/50s better in sound than the titans?
