Skullcandy Ink’d Wireless
The Skullcandy Ink’d Wireless Earbuds are a great addition to the Skullcandy line of headphones. The wireless version and the Skullcandy Ink’d wired 2.0 headphones share a lot of the same specs, the only real difference is that these ones are wireless. These earbuds are comfortable in your ear, with the earpiece being made out of a soft silicone material. Some customers do not particularly care for the look and feel of the neckband that accompanies the headphones. The neckband, however, is great because it is made to be very lightweight and flexible. You can bend and twist this piece into about a third of their original size to make it a lot easier and more convenient to store. The best thing about the Skullcandy Ink’d Wireless Earbuds, according to most customers, is the superior sound quality. No matter what kind of music you listen to or if you simply making phone calls, the sound is clear and there is no complaint of noise distortion at higher levels. These headphones come in many different colors so it is easy for you to find a color combination that will fit your personality. For a relatively cheap and budget-friendly pair of headphones, these are absolutely a good choice.

These headphones feature three easy to use buttons on the side of the neck collar, some customers refering to these buttons as the remote. You can control your music and phone calls from the headphones with the use of the remote. There is an up and down button that is used to control the volume, or if you hold them down they will let you skip and go back. The middle button acts as the power button, as well as what you will use to sync your headphones and take and end phone calls.
Reviewers have stated that these headphones have a strong audio performance that bass lovers adore. Customers have commented, however, that because of the sculpted highs and the massive bass, there is an inaccurate mix. That being said, those customers have also stated that the sound does not get distorted when listening to music at high volumes. Customers just fell in love with the quality they receive from the sound of these earbuds.
When you are using the headphones to take phone calls, instead of listening to music, the headphones also hold up well when it comes to the sound quality. Customers had nothing negative to say about the sound when taking phone calls. Reviewers state that the voice they heard on the other end was clear and the deep bass of the headphones did not distort the voice at all.
The headphones are super easy to connect to. Simply press and hold the middle button of the remote (located on the neck collar) and wait for the voice prompt in the headphones to tell you they are waiting for pairing. Once you hear that prompt you will be able to select your headphones from your devices Bluetooth menu. You will hear the voice in your headphones tell you that the device is connected. It is as easy as that.
The collar of the headphones, however, have mixed reviews. Some customers have commented that they do not like the way it fits around their neck and that it makes them a bit uncomfortable. The collar is a personal preference that you will either love or hate.
One thing that customers did like about the style of these headphones is that they come in many different colors. You can choose from black, gray, white, blue & sunset, red & black, steel & chrome, or royal blue. You can choose the color that best suits your personality and make them your own.
The wires on the headphones, however, are thin and do not offer a whole lot of resistance to bending. They also are smooth and do not have any kind of texture to give them the feeling of ruggedness or toughness. This can be a problem because that means the wires are fragile and can be easily broken or kinked causing damage to the headphones.
Ease of Use
Pairing the device is simple and easy. If you hold in the middle button on the rocker you will hear a voice prompt in the headphone that it is looking for pairing. Once it picks up your device it will simply connect. Easy as that.
The headphones come with a power cord that can be used to charge the battery. If you happen to lose the charging cord or would like to have a backup, you can simply use any micro-USB charging cable for these headphones.
