The Skullcandy Hesh 3 headphones are a very nice pair of headphones. They’re pretty well-designed, reasonably comfortable, and they sound good too. Of course, they have some serious competition — like the Sennheiser HD 4.40BT’s. In fact, if you can stretch your budget a little, those are still the headphones we would recommend in this price range.
Don’t sweat a low battery. Rapid charge means you get 4 hours of use from just a 10 minute charge.
Take a call without having to touch your phone. You can communicate clearly through the built-in microphone.
Track forward or turn it up. Hesh 3 lets you manage calls, tracks, and volume straight from the earcup.
The headphones connect to your listening device through Bluetooth, and as such they have a connectivity range of 10 meters, or 33 feet. We didn’t experience any real connectivity issues with the headphones except at unreasonable distances or through a ton of obstacles. According to Skullcandy, the headphones will get a hefty 22 hours on a single charge, which is pretty good. Sure, it won’t break any records, but it still beats out a lot of the competition. Beyond the battery life, the real news here is that they offer a form of quick charging — in which you’ll get four hours of playback in 10 minutes of charging. That’s a pretty big deal — especially for those that don’t want to wait ages to start listening again.
