Skullcandy Earbuds Review – Ink’d 2.0

Skullcandy Ink'd 2.0 Earbuds Review

Some of you have been asking about earbud recommendations and this will be a good place to start. I will be reveiwing a pair of Skullcandy earbuds today, the Ink’d 2.0’s to be exact.

Skullcandy Ink’d 2.0 – Ballin’ On A Budget

These compact, affordable earbuds pack more of a punch than I would’ve previously imagined. At the low price being offered through Amazon, (eligible for Prime benefits) you can’t really ask for a better option.


What’s Included?

The Ink’d earbuds come with 2 pairs of rubber earbud sleeves so you can personalize your earbud’s comfort and fit for you.

Also, on the left earbud wire, it has an inline mic and control switch. You can pause your music and answer phone calls without having to reach into your pocket. Convenience at it’s finest.


How Do They Perform?

For the price you pay for the Skullcandy Ink’d 2.0’s, you will be blown away by the sound quality.

I have paid more than 20 bucks for a pair of earbuds before and I’ll be the first to tell you that I’ve also been let down more than once in doing so.

This was not the case with these ones.

Across the board, whether watching movies, playing video games, listening to music, or podcast listening, I haven’t experienced too many negatives at all.


Cons To Consider

I pay very close attention to every aspect of the experience when trying out new gear and I only have a couple complaints. 

  • Depending on the shape of your ears, the silicone gel earbud sleeves tend to fall out once in a while
  • After long periods of listening, slight noticeable discomfort in one ear

Here’s a short video detailing everything included with your purchase: 


My Personal Experience

Now, in the past I have steered away from the earbuds with gel earbud sleeves for various reasons. Most people seem to get along with them just fine. My complaints in the past relate directly to the fit for my ears and how they tend to fall out if you’re moving around a lot.

If you are using these ones while mostly stationary, you will not be disappointed. If you plan on running or exercising mostly while using these, you might be a little bit frustrated. Once again, this revolves mostly around the shape of your ear.

Most people don’t really have any problems at all keeping them in place, this is just my personal experience.


Look No Further

All in all, Skullcandy’s are a really great place to start if you’re looking for something affordable and of decent quality. If you’re looking for something to use for casual listening, look no further.

If you want a pair of earbuds that you won’t have to feel too guilty about loosing, look no further.

Lastly, if you’re a fan of a cool logo, name, and don’t mind spending the small price for a lot of enjoyment, look no further. Feel free to check them out here and give them a try.

  1. The Skullcandy Earbuds seems like a good basic choice with a good sound quality.

    However, I am having a little bit the same problem with the silicone gel earbud sleeves that they tend to fall out once in a while. Do you have any experience using earbuds that have a holder that goes above and almost around the ear to hold them on better? I have wanted to try them out but are afraid that they will not fit well with eye glasses…

    Another helpful thing would be a clip that makes it possible to attach the cable to your shirt so that in case earbuds fell off they are not hitting the ground.

    1. Hey Maria, yes I have owned a pair of those ones, they weren’t my favorite but it comes down to personal preference. Here’s a link to some I found but haven’t tried: http://amzn.to/2xmk7BE These ones come with a lot of different rubber ear sleeves so it looks more customizable. They’re wireless and actually wrap around the back of your head so if one ear piece did happen to fall out, they won’t hit the ground. With these you won’t need a clip but once again, they do have the rubber ear sleeves. Unfortunately I think that’s where the technology is headed. It’s hard to find quality earbuds that don’t utilize the earbud sleeves.

  2. I have been looking for a replacement for my beloved M & M’s earbuds, that are now going for astronomical prices on amazon since you cannot get them in stores anymore. I found them to be comfortable and they mostly stayed in my ears. I need that kind of earbud, since they will stay put. I will look at the skullcandy brand for my next pair.
    My problem, is that I mostly use headphones at night to listen to subliminal recordings. I want a headband type headphone, but they are pricey! And I hope you can do a review on them in the future.

    1. Hi Irma,

      What kind of headband headphones are you talking about exactly? The kind that sit on top of your head, over your ears? Or the kind that have headphones built in to more of a winter type of headband?

      You really can’t go wrong with these earbuds for what you get for such a low price.

      I had similar problems in the past with them falling out of my ear on occasion so it’s nice that these ones come with 2 different sizes. I changed them out for the smaller earbud sleeves and haven’t had too much trouble at all with them falling out.

      Thanks for your comment.

  3. Yes, the kind that are like a winter headband. I see so many different price points as well as many plusses and minuses for each kind that is being reviewed by customers.
    I can use the skullcandy type of earbuds during the day or when jogging, but at night they are a pain.
    I was thinking that the headband type might be nice for my nighttime mp3 listening, because earbuds fall out of my ears while I am asleep which kind of defeats the purpose of using subliminal theta-wave type programming as you need both sides of your earbuds working in unison for the programming to work.

    1. Okay I see what you’re talking about. To be honest with you I don’t have any experience using the headband type of headphones but this company called AcousticSheep makes headphones specifically for sleeping and have the headband design you were asking about. They’re called the SleepPhones Effortless

      They are perfect “headphones for sleeping”. I hope this is what you were looking for.

      Let me know if you would like any more assistance.

      Thanks Irma,
      Dom
