PROS

  • The Grind comes at a super price for what you get: a comfy fit and impressive sound.
  • Playback controls and microphone are built into one earcup where they are easy to access.
  • The headband is constructed of metal instead of plastic, which gives you great flexibility when you adjust the headphones to fit your head.

CONS

  • The headphones do not fold up or collapse, making portability a problem; there's no carrying case, either.
  • The Grind lacks volume controls.
  • If you're an audio purist, the booming base won't appeal to you.
Skullcandy spoils you with color choices for the Grind headphones--if that's your thing: Choose from black, white, purple, gray/plaid, and camouflage/gold, among other quirky combos. Looks aside, the Skullcandy Grind packs a lot into a low price. The headphones deliver high-quality audio overall, and you can expect powerful bass and rich highs. The plush ear pads provide a comfortable and secure fit. Use the handy button on the outside of the left earcup--Skullcandy’s TapTech feature--to accept calls, and play, pause, or switch tracks.

This headphone set doesn't seal out ambient noise as well as others, but can be used with some satisfaction in an airplane.

Pretty great
If you’re on a budget, definitely look into getting these! I use these almost everyday and they’re comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time. I was pretty surprised and pleased with the sound quality especially because these are way cheaper than other competing headphones on the market. I’m not in love with the design, but they do come in many colors for you to choose from. However with how affordable these are, I’m not really complaining.
