Best Skullcandy Headphones Review
There are plenty of noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones, but only a few have respectable audio and deliver quality noise cancellation. Fewer still offer ANC (active noise cancellation) and cost less than $200. So, it’s fair to wonder if the $179.99 Skullcandy Venue falls into that revered set. The good news is the ANC provides above-average noise cancellation. The bad news is it suffers from issues common to lower-budget ANC, like audible hiss and an influence on audio performance when activated. But if you’re looking for bass-forward, wireless, sub-$200 headphones with good-enough ANC, the Venue is a solid option.
Always clever and stylish with its product design, Skullcandy keeps things simple and (mostly) unmarked with the Venue. The two external ambient mics (for the ANC), however, have tiny Xs that could just as easily be featureless design flourishes. Available in all-black or white with crimson highlights, the Venue has a matte plastic build with a detented headband for precise ear-to-ear fit. The Venue’s circumaural earcups are heavily padded and block out a modest amount of ambient noise passively. They’re also quite comfortable, as is the padded underside of the headband.
The left earcup houses the Power button and ANC button, as well as status LEDs that keep you apprised of battery life. On the right earcup, there are three buttons: a central multifunction button for playback/call management/voice assistance, and plus/minus buttons for volume adjustments and track navigation. We’re never fans of seeing these two functions combined on the same buttons—it’s far too easy to accidentally skip a track when you only mean to adjust the volume. The bottom panel of the right earcup also houses the connection ports for the included audio and charging cables.
The onboard voice mic, located on the side panel of the right earcup, works in both wired and wireless modes—the included audio cable has no inline remote or mic. You can also use the ANC in wired mode as well as wirelessly. Don’t assume that plugging the cable in automatically kills both the Bluetooth connection and ANC—it only unpairs the headphones. So if you’re plugging the cable in to preserve battery life, make sure you disable ANC, or you’ll be draining the battery regardless. This also means that if the battery is completely dead, the headphones work in passive mode—the difference in audio performance between wired passive mode and Bluetooth mode is negligible.

To make things easier for audiophiles, this guide focuses on sound quality above all else. Over-ear headphones could also be a better option for your ear health than in-ear headphones models, putting a bit more distance between those loud tracks and your eardrums. If safeguarding your hearing is important to you, that’s another reason to look for a pair of over-ears.
If you are looking headphones or earbuds with colorful and modern designs without spending a ton of money, then Skullcandy may be a good option. Keep in mind, theSkullcandy sound is generally bass-heavy and sound quality is average.
Skullcandy and jbl don’t even make any good earphones or headphones, but at least in the super budget side jbl has decent sound and build quality. Skullcandy has nothing going for it, it just looks flashy (not good just flashy) and is poorly made with garbage sound.

Skullcandy Headphones are just a hype. The sound quality is poor in the cheap versions (under $20) . The appealing designs and colours do attract a lot of youths. They focus more on bass thus making the other frequency muddy.
