VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The low-end bass of the XTfree booms distortion free.
  • The earbuds fit securely in your ear so they won't pop out.
  • The XTfree is moisture-resistant so it won't get sweaty.

CONS

  • The bass deserves praise, but the treble not so much.
  • If you're a critical listener, this is not the earbud for you.
  • Only the ear tips are colorful, and that's the part hidden in your ear.
XTfree is Skullcandy's newest wireless headphone designed for the athlete. It features TripleLock security, which keeps the earbuds in place using three proprietary technologies: FitFins, Fix, and Sticky Gels, a unique silicone that sticks more when you sweat. The device comes with two sets of gels--one of which is designed for running on the street and allows you to better hear cars approach. XTfree is wireless so you don't have to worry about cables and goes six hours on a single charge. The XTfree features bass suited for the type of motivating music most people listen to at the gym.

The value in these earbuds are truly in the fit and comfort. The peace of mind knowing that you don’t have the drop the weights in the middle of a set to re-adjust your earbuds is a nice relief.

All in all, the XTFree earphones aptly fit the description of ‘Work out Earphones’, as it seems that Skullcandy have all the right boxes ticked. All that remains is the price, and at $99, I don’t think its going to be a problem owning these monsters at all.

On tracks with powerful sub-bass content, like our test track, The Knife's "Silent Shout," the XTfree delivers thunderous bass that, even at top listening levels, doesn't distort.
