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 of 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

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 related 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.

As always, drop a comment below on your experience and opinion and I’ll be sure to get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for tuning in!

What Others Say

here do a review on the Skullcandy 82.0
 these are the new Skullcandy inked they
 redid the what a noticed is they redid
 the input right here it's uh so it can
 fit into the the smaller you know
 headphone jacks so this woman isn't one
 this is only iPad Mini but it definitely
 fits into the Game Boy cases and the
 otter boxes so I know that the and these
 are with the control talked the
 Skullcandy Inc the pair I got it was up
 the Rasta pair and I didn't do a review
 on them I just gave them away because
 they didn't even plug into my my case
 for my iPod it was because they made
 this it kind of like flattened out and
 so it would it just wouldn't stay you
 know plugged in or whatever and they I
 think they fixed that problem and so
 that's why I got um the other thing they
 were originally $24 and Best Buy had
 them on sale for 1295 and I had a Best
 Buy gift certificate a reward
 certificate for ten dollars so I paid
 three bucks for these so it kind of you
 know balance itself out for me okay so
 let's get into these things um so for 24
 I'd say they're I guess they're worth it
 you know maybe but uh when they were on
 say if you can get them for like fifteen
 dollars under I would go ahead and get
 these these are nice second pair of
 headphones they you know like a backup
 hair definitely the control talk works
 well not the control block that's
 monster but it's the mic it works you
 know play/pause and they're uh they're
 supposed to be all black matte but they
 have this gold strip right there
 obviously doesn't it doesn't really
 bother me um they're basically just for
 me just to go to sleep with nothing more
 um or if I went to jam my my other
 headphones I forgot him or something
 which would never happen I'd use them
 but Oh in the rain
 obviously I won't use them I wouldn't
 want to damage my good headphone so they
 get the it's nice little I guess it's a
 regular cable it's flat though it's not
 tangle free it's not even tangle
 resistant I had problems with it but
 what are you gonna get for 24 bucks or
 15 so they are very bass heavy you're
 not gonna get what you want
 as far as sound if you want some good
 sound you know you got to pay money for
 it if you're expecting you know the moon
 and you know a pot of gold with these
 you're not gonna get it
 they're just loud they definitely you
 know they suffice for you know if you're
 not expecting much you can't go and go
 and get these and expect two months but
 they do have bass and they get pretty
 loud they do leak oblique a bit so we're
 gonna do a leak test we're gonna go
 the iPad Mini here and go to the EQ you
 okay so my girlfriend's got this song
 playing gangster with it all right so
 we'll do that leak test alright alright
 so let's get into it here alright so
 it's uh I feel like dying by loane here
 here's another loud song
 Cheers drink to that Rihanna very clear
 song loud song I think it's I think I
 purchased it I can't recall but I know
 it's a very clear song so let's get into
 the leak test for that I'm just going to
 do a hundred percent maybe I'll go down
 to 75
 so go
 okay okay so that's the review on the
 Skullcandy inked 2.0 I would say get
 them just as a pair of you know backup
 hair if I wouldn't get them from the
 Skullcandy website because the
 Skullcandy website hasn't for 2495 and
 then i think they have free shipping but
 after attacks maybe some shipping you're
 talking 30 bucks for these I was very
 fortunate to get these only had to pay
 three dollars out of pocket for these
 and it makes them very worth it because
 three bucks I mean that's a soda and a
 burger you know most places you know
 McDonald's so to give these for three
 bucks is definitely a good thing in the
 original price there's 1295 it went down
 I think or $12.99 went down half-price
 or something like that so I would say
 you know if you're gonna get these try
 to get them for under 15 make it worth
 it I mean you know they're just there's
 a skullcandy their average headphones I
 mean they would be perfect for a
 teenager you know someone that doesn't
 know better really they'll eat a lot
 they're loud for the sake of being loud
 they they have a lot of bass and the
 bass kind of covers up the you know
 deficiencies everywhere else you know as
 far as the MS the trebles and the highs
 you know everything else is kind of just
 it doesn't distort like I can handle
 when I had it all the way up it didn't
 distort or anything like that but the
 bass was so overwhelming and the bass
 when they put a lot of had a lot of bass
 and headphones it kind of like covers up
 the flaws and every other aspect of the
 headphone so with that said
 they're 12 bucks they're $24 a rigidly
 priced like what do you really expect
 you know I don't expect much and you
 don't get much but you don't pay much
 either so you can get them for what I
 got them for you know 12 13 bucks and
 actually pay three dollars you know
 total because I had a reward certificate
 ten dollars so this ball came the 82.0
 that's my review thanks guys for
 watching appreciate it

  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.
    Cheers,
    Maria

    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┬áThese 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
