Skullcandy Ink’d Wireless Review Facts
Watch Video Review

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.

Customers love how comfortable the Skullcandy Ink'd Wireless Earbuds feel in their ears. The headphones come with three different sized tips for the earpieces to make sure you are going to get a pair that will fit you comfortably and securely. The earpieces are made from a soft silicone material that will sit in your ear without irritation. You do not want to have an earbud in your ear that is stiff, hard and uncomfortable, and you will not get that with these, as they are nice, soft, and comfy.

Style
Style

Style

The Skullcandy Ink'd Wireless Earbuds are designed with simplicity in mind. Keep in mind that they are a much cheaper alternative to some of the other big name headphone brands on the market, so they are not necessarily made to be the most stylish. The neckband is thin and super lightweight. Customers have commented that they do not like that they look so cheaply made.

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.
Durability
Durability

Durability

The Skullcandy Ink'd Wireless Earbuds are not a bad pair of headphones, and they tend to last quite a while. The neckband does look like it is cheaply made and it is flimsy, but it is important to remember that they are made to bend and fold up to a third of their size so you can store them easier. The headphones are wireless and therefore do not have a 3.5 mm aux jack to worry about so these headphones are going to last you quite a bit longer than other corded headphones.

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
Ease of Use

Ease of Use

The Skullcandy Ink'd Wireless Earbuds are relatively easy to use for anyone. There is a controller on the side of the neckband that lets you control your music and phone calls without fiddling with your phone. There are three buttons, an up and down button, and a middle button. The up and down buttons will control the volume of your music, but if you hold either of the buttons down for three seconds it will either skip your song (if you push up) or go back (if you push down). The middle button has a couple of different uses. It is used for powering the device on and off, but it is also used to pair the device and answer phone calls.

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.
