Skullcandy Uprock Headphones Review

Thursday, 26 May 2016

I've had quite a few pairs of headphones over the years and I wasn't particularly looking to buy another set, but when I was in TK Maxx and spotted these for £10 down from the normal price of £30 it seemed too good an opportunity to miss. They feel well built for the price and have a simple but attractive design. I mean, I don't know how long they will stay perfectly white, however I'm still glad I chose this colour. 

I'm really impressed with the sound that these Skullcandy Uprock headphones kick out. They give out surprisingly good bass for their size, but still perform well for detailed sections. When using them to listen to music, they represent it pretty true to what it should sound like, as I've had headphones in the past that can be really good dealing with bass, but lose out to vocals and other parts. These headphones are well balanced to give you a good overall music output. I've also used these when watching vlogs and more speech based videos and they still perform well here, with speech coming out clear and crisp.

The 'memory foam ear pillows' are a welcome change as they are slightly angled so they fit much better on the ears. There is a decent amount of padding to ensure that don't push in too much, without being over the top to make them bulky. I've worn them for a prolonged period of time and they are still comfortable, something I've not had the luxury of with some other headphones in the past. The headband is adjustable so you shouldn't have to worry about them being too small. A neat little feature that many will appreciate is the flat tangle-free cable with the addition of a built in microphone and remote. This will allow you to take calls on the go and control your music with the play/pause and volume controls. 

Overall, I'm really happy with these headphones and was very impressed with how they perform. Having only paid £10 for them, they were an absolute bargain, and I think they are well worth the normal price of £30. They are much comfier than ones I've had in the past, while still looking much more expensive than they actually are as a result of their sleek design.
