First Look: Skullcandy iCon Soft headphones

2:02 /

The Skullcandy iCon Soft headphones offer up style and sound that only a tween or teen could love.

>> Call me crazy, but I have a thing for ridiculous tech. I don't know, at least it makes me laugh. I'm Jasmine France, and I'm here with the Skullcandy Icon Soft Headphones. And just look at them. I mean, they're pretty absurd looking. There's a couple complaints I have about these headphones, other than the look, which is totally a matter of opinion. The first thing is that they don't fit very securely because of the thickness of the headband here. They tend to slide around quite a bit on the top of my head when I wear them. Also, the sound quality is very anemic, and the base is totally weak. So you're not going to get great sound quality from these headphones. Now, moving along to maybe some more positive things about these headphones; the first is that they have these nice soft ear pods that do seem to be quite sweat resistant. So that's always good. They also have a really thick and durable cable, which is coated in cloth. And it doesn't have any real sound issues when it rubs against your clothing. And it has an integrated mic and call answer button here on the left cable. Now, as for cost, these would set you back about $35, and they do come in three color variations. You have the black and green that I have here. There's also a brown stripe version and a very loud multicolored version. Now, one more ridiculous thing about these headphones, and that's instead of including a case, Skullcandy has elected to include this very stylish do-rag. ^M00:01:29 [ Music ] ^M00:01:39 OK, a little bit confused about that. Also, you get with these headphones these interchangeable earpieces which snap onto the outside of each ear pad. I'm Jasmine France, and this has been the Skullcandy Icon Soft Headphones. ^M00:01:54 [ Music ]
