    • SLYR: Skullcandy SLYR Review

      June 7, 2013

      My friends at Skullcandy surprised me by sending me their first gaming headset the SLYR. As we reported awhile back Skullcandy bought Astro Gaming which is known for their high-end gaming headsets. Skullcandy’s strategy was to introduce a entry level option priced much lower than Astro’s line. Starting with the SLYR at $80 going up to the Astro A50 at $300.

    • SLYR: Skullcandy SLYR Headset Review. Exceptional Gaming Headset At A Fair Price

      June 7, 2013

      Skullcandy has been creating audio gear for a long time now- nearly a decade, as a matter of fact. In 2012 they acquired high-end audio headset manufacturer Astro Gaming. They’ve decided to keep the Astro name exclusive to their $200+ headset family, and are now re-entering the gaming headset market with the Skullcandy brand. Their new line-up consists of the PLYR1 and PLYR2 wireless headsets, as well as the SLYR wired headset.

      Over here at NR we recently received a new pair of gaming headphones from Skullcandy. It has been awhile since Skullcandy has released a gaming headset. I vividly remember my friend purchasing one of their first models back in 2009. The manufacturer has changed a lot since then. In 2011, Skullcandy purchased the renowned pro gaming headphone maker Astro Gaming.This year Skullcandy has decided to reenter the gaming headphone market with their new line of SLYR Gaming Headphones. With Astro now a part of the family brand, can Skullcandy make quality gaming headphones for an affordable price?

    • SLYR: Skullcandy SLYR Gaming Headset Review

      June 7, 2013

      Over the past year I have been fortunate enough to review some high-end gaming headsets.  The Astro A50’s for example are about as good as it gets.  They are wireless, have 7.1 surround sound capabilities, and I consider them second to none in terms of comfort; frankly they kick ass.  The only downside is that those suckers will cost you around $300.

      Let me start by saying I have always been a skullcandy fan. Their headphones have always been high quality and the sound has always been great. This product is the only exception for me.

      I am VERY impressed with these headphones, and I use them regularly. The bass is PERFECT, where is doesn't go for the over sized BOOM, but makes it perfect for my ears. They provide a almost "memory foam" cupping, and allows for glasses to be worn with them. The cups also tune out the loud noises, but doesn't cancel out important sounds like my cell phone or email. The design is sleek and modern, and can take a beating (well, not really). I would sometimes have my right speaker tune out,so I had to purchase a new cord for my headphones . The mic is great, and flexes to my head size. I find that the SLYR isn't very compact for quick use, but I improvise. I don't use it for gaming, but that's a different review.

      Perfect Headset for Gaming & Music!

      May 1st, 2014

      by Jordan

      Lets just start by me saying that the sound is top notch for a $79.99 headset! I have been using this headset for my PS4, Xbox 360 & iPod. If you play Call of Duty or Battlefield, yes you can hear footsteps loud & clear & also which way they're coming from. But of course, this headset does sound amazing in other games too. For music it's amazing. Very clear & bass is perfect. Overall i can't lie.. i wasn't expecting this when i first heard about these headphones but they really did blow me away. One thing i personally think should be improved is the headset band. But it's not a big deal though. If you do not want to spend $100+ on a headset then YES i absolutely recommend the Skullcandy SLYR's. Supreme Sound, very comfortable & compatible with almost everything.

      So far I have had these for four months, and nothing has changed since I got them. I use these for gaming and listen to music with them. So far they are great. There is static in the back ground when you're not using them, but your going to the next thing or you can put them around your neck. Not very portable if you need to take them places with your computer. But over all, very happy i got them.

      The SLYR's are perfect gaming headset with the great sound and the all around comfort of the ear cups. But when it comes to music they do as well as all the other skullcandy products. Like most people i like my music loud but these can't handle that, when they get to a certain volume point the sound gets distorted and they aren't noise canceling either which is something i love about skullcandy headphones. But other than that they are amazing an headset.

      All-Purpose Gamer Review

      March 5th, 2014

      by Alex

      I use this headset for Xbox and for PC. I generally use it for anywhere between 3-6 hours comfortably. The major con is that in order to allow the player to hear his or herself, only the left earcup is sealed. The right earcup allows for sound to enter to help minimize yelling into the mic. It throws me off sometimes.

      I managed to find these at my Gamestop in town after stalking ebay and amazon for about 4 weeks. They're really hard to find in this design, but the design is beautiful. Tjey start to get uncomfortable if you wear them for hours on end. (but then again we arent supposed to be gaming that long as it is. No one listens.) They work great for playing my 3DS and while on skype for chatting. The volume control is a little confusing at first but pretty easy once you get it. I had them cut out on me once, but i just unplugged them and plugged it back in. Definitly for a gamer and even more for an Assassin's Creed fan.

      This item looks cool but you need a few ADDITIONAL items to use if you don't play xbox or ps3 in HD. You know you could put that on the packaging that you need a HDMI audio adapter that would definitely help.

      I've had this headset for about a year, and its great! The sound quality is excellent and the mic is great! Its really easy to set up and it works great for the Xbox 360 and PC. I haven't tried it with the PS3. There's only one thing bugging me: it just doesn't look good. The speakers, by your ears, although they don't look like it on the box, they're very bulky and stick out on my head and make me look ridiculous. My brother walked in and just plain out laughed at me with these on. Now, I don't know if its just me, but from my experience, I would recommend to anyone wanting to use these in a face cam whether Skype or doing a YouTube video, to go look for something else, because you'll look very weird with these on. The performance is really good, so if you want to buy a headset for performance, not looks, buy these

      Slyr headset great for ps3/xbox ok for pc/mac

      November 6th, 2013

      by Seth

      The Slyr headset was a bit confusing to hook up at first to my playstation, but then I watched a video and figured it out. The only problem was, the sound would play through the tv and headset, and one of the reasons I bought it was so I wouldn't disturb people around me. I turned the tv on mute to solve this problem. The problem with pc/mac is that you can't use the mic. I hooked it up and could get sound but could not use the mic. Other than those problems the confort was amazing! Fit perfectly over my ear and felt comfortable. I have a very small head and it still fit fine. I also like the sound from them, it sounds like a high end headset. The cord has a lot of room. The Slyr overall is a good headset especially for ps3/xbox 360.

      Top notch sound quality, Versatile set up

      October 15th, 2013

      by Brian

      I looked a long time for a headset that worked with all my devices, and had the features I wanted. I wanted one that would work on XBOX, and both my Apple and PC computers, and was comfortable, and had an "over ear" design, as opposed to an "on ear" design. The Skull Candy SLYR exceeded my expectations. The pads are extremely comfortable, and the ergonomics are very well designed. The sound quality also surprised me. The control module is also very well thought out, and I like having the three audio settings and the mute button, volume and voice/game balance control. It's also nice that the cord is so long, yet you can choose to just use the stereo cable without the control module and long section of the cable when you are just using it for a smartphone/iPod or whatever. I was not able to confirm that it would work with my iMac before purchasing them, which had been a problem with other headsets I had tried in the past. This is because Apple uses a "Line In" instead of a regular mic input, so it does not supply power to the mic. The SYLR has a USB cable that supplies power to the mic, and acts as an input. According to the literature, the USB cables are designed for use with consoles, so I was happy to find that it worked perfect on my iMac. I could even choose to use the USB cable for both sound output and mic input, or to use the RCA style stereo cable with an adaptor in the 3.5mm stereo output if I wanted. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a versatile gaming headset with high quality audio, and awesome features.

      Good Gaming Headset With Some Issues

      September 15th, 2013

      by Drake C.

      I've always been a big fan of Skullcandy products, they've always had decent durability, good audio quality, and pretty reliable. When it comes to this headset I was fairly impressed. The audio quality was very good, I liked the fact that the microphone could be folded into the left ear cup if you wanted use them as headphones, and the in-line device was very simple to use for adjusting game/chat volume. This headset does have some issues though. The microphone is some what quiet. When gaming with friends they'll have to ask me to repeat myself multiple times because other people are drowning out the sound of my voice. Another issue is that with some games the microphone will stop registering my voice and I will have to stop what I'm doing, go into the accessory settings on my system, deselect then re-select my headset for the microphone to start working again. This process is very tedious and can get frustrating when playing with friends. My final issue with the headset is that the frame is not very strong. One day when I was playing with my headset on, I got up and out of my chair and my headset slipped off of my head. The headset fell and the right side of the headset broke off. Luckily the wire didn't break and I was able to tape it back together. I plan on exchanging the headset for a new one or returning it to purchase a new headset soon.

      The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is that the built in amp just can't get it loud enough. My gaming area is in an open room so sometimes it just wasn't there. These are a good price for what you get, they're super comfortable, stable and the stash-able mic is a great plus. the audio quality is good and the EQ was definitely thought out. I don't just use these for gaming so much but for video and audio editing. with superb comfort and sound this is a headphone you could wear for hours. The cables are super long, 15 feet or so I'd say. If you want to get a good gaming headset but don't need the top quality these are the way to go.

      Fantastic Headset for PC Gaming.

      March 11th, 2013

      by Dr. Love

      This headset really is awesome. The price is very reasonable given the quality and durability of it. I use this piece of equipment for pretty much everything except for Xbox or Playstation. I mainly use it for PC gaming, it makes every explosion, every shot fired, and every piece of chatter from my teammates or NPCs crystal clear. The microphone is excellent, I use it to quickly relay information in competitive matches to my teammates (I play a medic). This mic not only has clear voice, but eliminates the majority of background noises. I would recommend and have recommended this headset to friends!

      One Problem.

      February 15th, 2013

      by ATexMessage

      Great headset. I have had nearly no problems with them. The one problem I have run into is the mic. After a little under a month of using them for about 15 hours per week, the mic got very spotty for me. First, I was playing zombies on COD and my mic went out when playing with a friend. I unplugged it at the mic control and it was fine. Sometimes I would need to unplug it at the system and even at all three points before it would start working again. So thankfully Skullcandy gives a warranty because I will be sending them in for a new pair. Overall, I would give this produce a better rating than most other headsets of equal or lesser value.

      Worth The Hype

      February 7th, 2013

      by Khi

      These headphones are true quality, I just got the them today, and ran some test with them. It is noted that you have to push the cord in ALL the way until you hear a snap-ish sound, this will make sure you get full audio and not instruments (when listen to music) I tested them on the 360, very good sound experience I must say. Everything what heard and voices were clear. The EQ3 is very helpful for sound control without touching the remote (because these phones can cancel out the game tv volume at curtain volumes) Next I tried out the music experience. I like metal/rock so I gave the headphones a test for clarity, vocals and instruments. I heard each instrument so fluently I could possibly play by ear what I head. I only had them have way turned up because any higher and I'm at a concert with how much clarity you at those volumes, I recommend have volume to keep them working, for me my music is good quality so it's loud at 50% versus 75%. I also tested for bass with dubstep, I use Skrillex for this one. Point blank bass drops were so defined even my brother told me it stays with you once you take the headphones off. It was depth and not muddy, true to supreme sound

      January 4th, 2013

      by Ogreg

      I bought this headset and loved everything about it except one thing, there's no mic monitoring. You cant hear your own voice in the headset like most other headsets, so i find myself yelling just to hear what I'm saying. I would recommend this headset if that's not an issue for you because the sound quality is amazing for its price. It just feels like I'm deaf and kind of ruins the online experience a little bit.

      OMG this headset sounds amazing, I plugged it into a box that gives me 7.1 surround sound with stereo headsets and I must say: WOW. The bass is amazing, as well as the highs compared to my turtle beach X12 I had before this one & I have to say this is 1000X better! The only problem is the ear cushions sit on your ear (instead of over it like most headsets) and It got unconformable after a while. After I got it set up, I couldn't figure out how to use the control (As I would turn the game volume down, the voice would get extremely loud). There was no "good" instruction manuel included but I did figure it out eventually

      GREAT CHOICE FOR COMPETITIVE GAMING

      by M3GUHTRON

      This headset I was comparing to the Tritton Detonators or the Turtle Beach X12. I shouldn't have cause these are in a league all their own. Being a competitve gamer means you need a headset that allows you to hear where gunshots are coming from, footsteps, all while being comfortable on your head for some LONG hours of gaming. This headset is perfect for that. You can tell they are trying to make a quality product similar to the Astro A40 headset. While the quality is great, these are easily the most comfortable headset I have EVER worn, and I have had a lot of headsets. If you're in the market for a good gaming headset and torn between what I listed, SLYR hands down! Also, for those of you that wear glasses or Gunnars so contacts don't dry out, this headset goes great with them. I have worn both with this headset and it's extremely comfortable.

      Xbox fats

      December 27th, 2012

      by Kyle

      The product feels very comfortable and I like that it can be used for more then just the Xbox. The only problem that I found about the product is that you have to use a port on the Xbox for the headset to work. As in turtle beaches you can plug the USB port into a phone charger port and plug that into the wall and it still works. So whoever has a Fat ( older version) it will take up a USB and you only have 3 so therefore you can't use 2 corded controllers + wifi adapter... Otherwise it's a great product for its money worth.

      Superior sound quality?

      December 17th, 2012

      by Jamie P

      I have been a loyal customer to SkullCandy for a few years now so it was an easy decision to try out their new line of gaming headsets. My ideal situation was purchasing an Astro headset (now owned by skullcandy) but it wasn't at the price point I was looking for. SkullCandy almost met this need as it usually does, compromising frame quality for audio capability. In this case, the actual frame of the headset looks beautiful (great design SC) while working with cost-effective materials. Unfortunately, I feel the intricate design meant a compromise in sound quality. Sure, it beats my apple earbuds, but hardly. I feel audio is adequate for gaming and voice communication, but realistically you're missing out on some of the greater soundscapes. Another downside is the cord control for PC gaming (primary use of all gaming headsets). I have to say, it is outrageous to manage this tentacled beast of a wiring system. If you plan on using this headset for your PC then you'll need to use a separate AV to 1/8th inch adapter if you have any hope of using the audio control. Otherwise, you're just plugging in an eighth inch and getting no functionality other than the monitors. It gets the job done. It looks great doing it. Ultimately, it wasn't executed as well as I would expect from SkullCandy for the price. I'd say take some extra time to invest in the highest tier of their product line, or fulfill elsewhere.

      I just recently got these headsets and I am really happy with them. I searched around for a long time to find a decent gaming headset that could be used as normal headphones for work without looking like a tool, and carrying a bunch of wires around. This headset does exactly what I needed. With the mic folded up you can barely tell it's there. As far as gaming sound, they sound great. Obviously surround sound would be better, but overall I'm very happy with the sound quality when playing COD etc. Guns, Footsteps etc. I've been using the precision setting. Sound for using with iPod etc is good as well, and they block out enough outside noise so that I can focus on my work. These headsets are extremely comfortable and I use them all day at work without sore ears or headache. The build quality seems good as well. My one complaint is that I'm having a hard time finding the right balance on the equalizer for Game/Voice volume. Two separate controls would have been easier to fine tune. I don't think there is a more versatile headset in this price range, Excellent buy!

      For years the gaming headphone market has been dominated by a select few companies. Skullcandy tried a while ago to jump on the opportunity given with this promising market but the products they offered were not up to par with that of the competitors. That has all changed dramatically. The new line-up has defiantly put Skullcandy into the gaming headphone market. I recently purchased a pair of white SLYRs and dang they are amazing. First off the comfort is amazing. The earpads are made of soft cloth and plush padding. The headphones are much bigger than they look and the pads are crazy soft. The head band is supportive and soft so long gaming sessions are not a problem. The microphone folds easily and is very sturdy so you won't have to worry about it snapping off. The headphones are made out of a hard plastic so they feel lightweight but also kinda cheap, and somehow at the same time they feel sturdy and durable. The cables are very thick and feel like quality. Everything came packaged in a very nice and cool looking box. The sound was just awesome. The soundstage was a bit too narrow compared to Mix Masters but for gaming it was just fine. The different GMX mixer modes were cool but I personally didn't use it all that often. The Bass at times was slightly overwhelming but very controlled. The highs and mids are very clean and all together balanced and tight. The vocals come through clearly and the mic is better than most that I have used. Yes i very much recommend these headphone for the outrageous comfort, great sound quality, and amazing good looks.

      This headset is a stereo headset. It's no 7.1 surround sound, but it gets the job done like a boss. VERY good for it's 80 dollar price tag. In my opinion, it's probably worth ALOT more, but I'm not complaining. This headset is wired, with ALOT of wires running through your room, that's not much of a problem. The wires are SUPER long, meaning you can get up and do some stuff to a certain extent. On the wire, you have a Skullcandy's version of Astro's mixamp. 3 Equilizer settings, a mute button, and volume controls.

I tested them against a pair of Turtle Beach X12, which are similar in price, wired, and stereo amplified, and the SLYR was MUCH more comfortable, as well as sounded ultimately better. The SLYR was clearer, and what I noticed the most, much better bass. Love the fact that you can un-jack from the gaming wire, and use them as normal headsets for your smartphone, laptop, or any mobile device. Also, the EZ stash boom makes it almost unnoticeable.

      So I got the SLYR headset in today, all I have to say is one word. One little word. Amazing, The sound quality is better than my Astro A50's I got this headset for when I travel. That is no longer the case, these sound better hands down, and look much better than the A50's I think. And if anyone is wondering about the hookups There are a total of 3 cables and they give plenty of movement room. The cables you get are as follows. A 3.5mm male to male end, One end goes into the headset, the other into the volume control/ built in eq. This cable has the mic built in so it should work in most phones. (I'm not sure about the iPhone but I do know it works in my droid) Then you have the main cord, it's long... No really it's super long I would say at least 15' and for good reason, this has the USB for your computer on it, along with the pass through for the Xbox and PS3. Only the USB is needed for the PC, but this headset get's it's power from usb, so you will need it for the Xbox and PS3 as well. Then you have the Xbox cord It will plug into the main cord setup, right next to the 3.5mm jack. and into the controller for the Xbox. The headset it's self is crazy light(8.2 oz for the headset alone), I can and have been wearing it for almost 12 hours now. No fatigue at all. The cloth on the ear cushions should hold up quite well, and are breathable, so you don't get hot. The only down side to this in my opinion is that it let's a lot of sound bleed through. Also they fit my ears fine once I got accustomed to them. but if you have large ears they may be a bit tight at first. The mic quality is near flawless, my friends I game with say it's clear as day with no distortion. Not to mention when it's up you can't even tell it's there. All in all, I think it's well worth the money, this $80 headset beats out my $300 A50's hands down.

      After my old gaming headset broke after 2 years of use, I figured it was time to upgrade to a new headset. And when I read that Skullcandy was making one, I immediately got interested. As soon as Skullcandy announced it, I got excited and ordered it as soon as it came out, even though I knew that I would be taking a chance with it, but since Skullcandy was making it, I figured that it would be a solid choice for a headset, especially with the lifetime warranty that came with it. As soon as I got it, I unboxed it and started playing some games with it. The first thing I realized was how comfortable the headset was. I played for a few hours and almost forgot I was actually wearing it. The sound quality is decent; although the biggest problem I’ve been having was that the headset is that it would make crackling and popping sounds on it when I was playing Call of Duty and Battlefield occasionally. It even did this while listening to music too, which is disappointing. Besides that though, the sound quality is decent. The bass is nice and plentiful, but not over powering (of course, you could use the EQ Built into the headphone if you want more Bass), and the Mids and Highs are decent too. The EQ is pretty nice too, there is a pretty noticeable difference between what each setting does. I also like how you can hide the mic completely on the headset so if you do decide to use it on your Ipod it doesn’t look silly to other people around you. The final complaint is that on my PC, I can hear a slight humming sound coming from the headphones, but it isn’t to noticeable unless you have the volume >75%. Overall, it is a decent headset, and I think that it should be considered if you are looking for a headset somewhere in the <$100.00 Range.

    The Rebirth of Skullcandy Gaming

    I am currently an employee in the Skullcandy Gaming division. This is a first look at the SLYR and some of my favorite features. The SLYR is the best cross platform gaming headset on the market at 79.99. The best feature about the SLYR is the EZ STASH MIC feature, which gives you the option to use it outside the gaming world. Plus, you can use the SLYR on an Xbox 360, a PS3, or your PC. On top of that the SLYR detaches from the GMX IN-LINE-MIXER so you can use it with your mobile devices. The comfort rating on the SLYR between 1 to 4 hours is 10 out 10; this is maybe the most comfortable headset we’ve ever made.

    • SLYR: Skullcandy SLYR Review

      June 7, 2013

      My friends at Skullcandy surprised me by sending me their first gaming headset the SLYR. As we reported awhile back Skullcandy bought Astro Gaming which is known for their high-end gaming headsets. Skullcandy’s strategy was to introduce a entry level option priced much lower than Astro’s line. Starting with the SLYR at $80 going up to the Astro A50 at $300.

    • SLYR: Skullcandy SLYR Headset Review. Exceptional Gaming Headset At A Fair Price

      June 7, 2013

      Skullcandy has been creating audio gear for a long time now- nearly a decade, as a matter of fact. In 2012 they acquired high-end audio headset manufacturer Astro Gaming. They’ve decided to keep the Astro name exclusive to their $200+ headset family, and are now re-entering the gaming headset market with the Skullcandy brand. Their new line-up consists of the PLYR1 and PLYR2 wireless headsets, as well as the SLYR wired headset.

    • SLYR: Review: Skullcandy SLYR Gaming Headset

      June 7, 2013

      Over here at NR we recently received a new pair of gaming headphones from Skullcandy. It has been awhile since Skullcandy has released a gaming headset. I vividly remember my friend purchasing one of their first models back in 2009. The manufacturer has changed a lot since then. In 2011, Skullcandy purchased the renowned pro gaming headphone maker Astro Gaming.This year Skullcandy has decided to reenter the gaming headphone market with their new line of SLYR Gaming Headphones. With Astro now a part of the family brand, can Skullcandy make quality gaming headphones for an affordable price?

    • SLYR: Skullcandy SLYR Gaming Headset Review

      June 7, 2013

      Over the past year I have been fortunate enough to review some high-end gaming headsets.  The Astro A50’s for example are about as good as it gets.  They are wireless, have 7.1 surround sound capabilities, and I consider them second to none in terms of comfort; frankly they kick ass.  The only downside is that those suckers will cost you around $300.

      Skullcandy makes good headphones—that's not in dispute. While their headphones typically favor style over sound quality, they're reasonably priced and you can't really go wrong with a pair of anything they have to offer.

    • SLYR: Skullcandy SLYR Review

      June 7, 2013

      With Skullcandy’s acquisition of Astro Gaming a while back, a lot of questions were thrown up in the air about Astro Gaming’s future. It seems that Skullcandy has maintained the Astro brand for high end professional gaming audio and started a Skullcandy gaming line for a more affordable consumer line of gaming headsets.

    • SLYR: Skullcandy SLYR Gaming Headset

      June 7, 2013

      A good gaming headset can go a long way in adding to the enjoyment of any game you’re playing, not to mention prevent forcing others around you to listen to you playing the game (aside from you yelling obscenities into the microphone).
