Sound

The headphones are well-balanced with reasonable bass push. However, it is on the warmer end when it comes to the audio spectrum and can be a bit soft. You do get enough detail to prevent it from sounding muddy. Mids and highs are crisp and clear without sounding clipped.

Noise cancelling

Although the headphones Skullcandy Hesh 2 are wireless, they do not have a noise-canceling option.

Connectivity

You get this device with a 120 cm/4 ft long audio cable that is going to be plugged in a 3.5 mm TRS. The charging cable that comes with the model Hesh 2 should be plugged in a micro USB port.

Comfort and design

Skullcandy Hesh 2 specs can give you only half of the info about the headphones since their built also matters. Speaking of weight, Skullcandy Hesh 2 has 180 g/6.3 oz which makes them relatively light. The adjustable headband is another benefit you have using this pair of headphones.

You do get a carry case with them but keep in mind that the device does not fold. Referring again to advantages, the headphones have built-in buttons and a microphone.
