Sound

This time Skullcandy focused mainly on the high-end, treble and mids instead of focusing on bass. But it does not mean that there is lack of bass since the headphones provide plenty of punch. What is special about this model is that you get incredibly clear treble. Moreover, the soundstage is pretty wide which is very unusual as we are talking of closed-back headphones. The headphones have impressive separation and will be a great choice for audiophiles.

Noise cancelling

It is a pity but this device does not provide an active noise-canceling.

Connectivity

The appliance has a micro USB port and comes with a charging cable. Also, you get an audio cable which is 120 cm/4 ft long and can be detached.

Comfort and design

Speaking of comfort, I have to mention that the weight of Skullcandy Hesh 3 is 200 g/7.1 oz. The headband can be adjusted without any squeak. You can fold these headphones into the headband and put them in a nice carrying case.

For control, you will have built-in buttons. The integrated microphone allows you to make hands-free phone calls.
