Made for Apple: SkullCandy Mix Master

I have a prejudice against SkullCandy products, one headset with wooden headphones quickly fell into disrepair - it was enough to fold it several times to literally break the cable. In the second headset, the sound in the left earpiece disappeared. The percentage of marriage, apparently, is high, which I personally cannot put up with. Although I like the design and the very idea of ​​the brand: relatively inexpensive bright headphones, a fashionable element, basically all models are addressed to users of Apple technology. Let's see what Mix Master, the large skull typeface, can do.

Design, construction

Headphones come in an interesting package, it opens literally to the sides, inside the headphones are tucked into a nice case. I’ll immediately note one good feature of the Mix Master, the headset can be folded if desired, then it will fit in a bag, you can easily take it on the road.

Wearing

Given the considerable weight of the device, it could be assumed that the Mix Master would not be easy to carry. In fact, the headphones sit very well, one might even say comfortable. Nothing presses anywhere, does not rub, comfortable, the cups completely cover the ears. Used a headset in the office so as not to scare colleagues with loud music. Noise isolation is not too good, when you have music playing, you can still hear loud sounds around - and those around you are also listening to Mix Master.

Management

There are two cables included, one thick, twisted, suitable for use with any player or laptop. There are 3.5mm inputs on each headphone, you can connect the cables wherever you want, which is very good. There is also a second cable, with a remote control for Apple technology, the buttons are large and comfortable, there are only three, two are responsible for volume control, one is multifunctional. Let me remind you that this remote control can work with the iPhone, and with the iPod, and with the iPad, and with the MacBook, very conveniently. There is also a microphone, and the microphone is not bad, of course, you need to bring it closer to your mouth, but you can hear it well without it, the interlocutors do not complain.

In addition, the headphones have a Mute button, it turns off the sound, a very nice and useful addition. There are a lot of situations when a button may be needed, I won’t list it.

Good sound quality, but I thought Mix Master could do more, with iPhone 4S they only sound good, but you can see that with a different sound source, everything can be more interesting. They are not particularly bassy, ​​honestly work out what they give, without breaking down or up - that is, it is equally good to hear Massenet's "Elegy" and something from the late Malezhik. For my usual music, I would choose AiAiAi TMA-1 because the "one" has a dark, gloomy sound without loss of density, and here it hurts without character, nothing interesting or exciting. Although for music lovers in the truest sense of the word, Mix Master is more suitable.

Some specifications:

  • Impedance 24 ohms
  • Sound Pressure Level 102dB (1mW/500Hz)
  • THD less than 0.05% (1mW/500Hz)

Here's an elegy for you!

Conclusions

The price in Moscow is about 12,000 rubles, I will immediately say that for this money SkullCandy Mix Master is not an option at all, there are many more interesting models for less money, ranging from Monster products to the already mentioned TMA-1. Speaking without looking at the price, the Mix Master is well-assembled, a good package, good sound, there is a Mute button, and I can safely recommend the model for purchase - but still save your money.

There are several Mix Master colors: black, red, black matte and yellow, the last option looks the most interesting.

There is a lot of plastic in the design, a plastic headband, plastic cups, I got a shiny black version with silver inserts, the headband at the bottom is trimmed with leatherette, the pillows are comfortable. The ear pads are also made of substitute, stitched with white thread, on those parts of the headband that are adjacent to the cups, there are skulls. As a tortoise lover, I can't help but rejoice. The design, of course, is more addressed to young people, it is unlikely that a person in years will want to get involved with such a thing.

The weight of the headphones is about 270 grams, a weighty little thing. Metal occurs when you pull out the cups for adjustment, that's just on the moving areas there is such material. It slides out with pleasant clicks, everything is as it should be. There are no complaints about the assembly, everything is not bad here, there are no extra squeaks or other sounds.
