SKULLCANDY Uproar Wireless Headset, Nice ‘phones, especially considering the price

I was getting tired of tangling myself up when i listened to music on my phone – having owned a skullcandy shrapnel for a while, i thought i’d give these a whirl. Very comfortable, excellent sound quality and a great range.

Nice lightweight headphones, surprisingly light i would say. Instant bluetooth connection and very good sound quality to say the ear cushions don’t cover your hears but are just against them. Overall not the best skullcandy headphones i’ve bought but i’d recommend for the price especially if your not looking for a big chunky pair.

Im no stranger to quality expensive headphones currently owning audio-technica mx-50’s around £130-150 which are fantastic,so buying these for the kids i was trully shocked with the quality and separation of the sound. Absolute bargain,bought another pair the next day.

Comfy & great sound quality

These are not bad for budget bluetooth headphones. They are both bass heavy & treble heavy which can be sorted to a degree with your equalizer settings. For £25, there aren’t many bluetooth sets that match the style of these though. Sound quality – 3/5comfort – 4/5battery life – 5/5style – 5/5ease of use – 5/5.

I’ve tried several pairs of big name bt headsets, and these are the first i consider fit for use, i even went back and ordered more. Construction seems good, mainly high density abs, minimum of moving parts to fail. The pads are covered with pvc faux leather and resist hair oil and dirt well, and are easy to clean. I wear headphones for many hours a day, every day, i’ve thrown out quite a few headphones just because they are impossible to keep lean under these circumstances. Despite being on-ear design, these are comfortable to wear all day, and seal out external sound almost too well. Listening at default volume, all 3 pairs i have all last approximately 16 hours on one charge listening to dance music and spoken word. They power save excellently, using almost no power if no sound source is detected. I have no hesitation leaving them on the desk turned on for hours, knowing the battery will be almost untouched when i come back. As with all bt headsets currently, playback quality is degraded considerably with the microphone live, if using on a pc ensure they are set to ‘wireless headset’, not ‘handsfree’ mode. Good range, they genuinely conform to the bt standard, effective 15m from the transmitter even through 2 wooden floors.

Wanted some entry level headphones and these have just arrived – immediate impressions are very good. Comfortable fit, lightweight and easy to pair to my iphone 7. Using them to listen to my fitness music for learning routines to group exercise and they fit the bill. Bass is good, treble and mid range fine although distortion becomes obvious at higher volumes – but for £30 you really can’t find anything wrong in that. Highly recommended for this price.

Nice pair of bluetooth headphones for the price. Now about three weeks in and no problems (as reflected in other reviews) experienced as yet. I have used these almost daily, late at night, to listen to some relaxing chillout without disturbing my wife, so only for half an hour or so at a time, but i find them very comfortable. There is a very slight hum/rattle which is only noticeable when the music goes very quiet at the low volume that i listen to my chillout, but (for me) doesn’t detract sufficiently for me to lower the score below 4* (they are, after all, pretty cheap), but does mean that they probably don’t deserve a 5* rating. Recently listened to downloaded radio programmes (cerys matthews on radio 6, so a test of both dialogue and variety of music styles), on two rail journeys the other day when they were on my head virtually for the whole time (three and a half hours each way) and i did not find them uncomfortable at all. The audio across all music genres and spoken voice was absolutely fine for my ears. The other thing that i like, is that when the ‘phones were off my head, the absence of noise leakage was really impressive, albeit i don’t have the volume really high. So far, i would not hesitate to recommend these as a good balance of quality and cost.

I can not stress enough how good these are. They are so lightweight, very comfortable and fantastic sound quality.

They’re alright considering the price but don’t expect something that’s going to blow you away. The battery life is decent but i couldn’t get more than 4 hours out of them. They are pretty light considering other models i tried which is a plus.

I initially bought these for my son so that he could connect them to his switch. But unfortunately it turned out that in order to do that you needed a little dongle thing, so i ended up buying him some actual gaming headphones that came with the thing i needed. I therefore pleasingly inheriting thesei am delighted with them, i enjoy listening to podcasts on my way round the supermarket on my weekly shop. It makes the experience a lot more bearable. Invariably people call while i’m in there, and i’m able to answer that call and speak whilst wearing them. Click on the button on the headset and i answer the call, double-click another button and you call the last person back, then go straight back to my podcast when the call is ended. I keep them on for literally ages, and i’m quite fussy when it comes to comfort, but these are great. Easy to adjust and just the right mix of grip so they don’t fall off, to headspace so they don’t squash your ears. Another great feature so far is the battery life.
