Skullcandy's Ink'd Wireless headphone plays better than it looks
Tv & Audio
This is Skullcandy's Ink'd wireless Bluetooth headphone, which costs about $40 online.
I can't say I was wowed by it's design when I first took it out of the box, frankly it looks a little cheap.
But I gotta admit, once I tried it out, it exceeded my expectations.
Very light weight.
If you have a shirt on you'll barely feel it around your neck.
Comfortable to wear, the bands got some flexibility to it which is good.
And while the cords that run neckband to earbuds seem a little thin.
Some of LGs Tone headphones have very think cords and I haven't had a problem with them breaking or fraying over time.
You plan to integrate a remote on the left side of the collar like the controls were large and easy to operate by feel.
There's a pause play button that also doubles as a call answer end button, and vine controls the double is track control buttons.
The buds themselves are all plastic.
They're very lightweight and the headphones shows with two sides of the silicone ear tips.
I was able to get a tight seal and surprisingly secure fit the larger default set.
As for the sound, I was pleasantly surprised.
It's pretty well balanced, and by that, I mean you don't get the treble and bass push you get from a lot of headphones these days.
And while there isn't a ton of bass, it offers decent clarity in the treble and mid range and measures up well against neckband To headphones that I've tested that cost almost twice as much.
Battery life is rated at seven hours at 75% volume and also works fine as a headset for making calls.
In the end, as I said, the [UNKNOWN] wireless exceeded my expectations.
It's a pretty no frills, neckband cell headphone but it is lightweight and comfortable to wear Sound as decent.
I'd like to see it cost even less, it's a reasonable deal at its current price point.
