This is a review of the Bluetooth Skullcandy Method BT Sport Earbuds. Listen and control music and take calls safely on the slopes.
These Skullcandy Method earbuds are especially designed with sport in mind and ideal for the slopes. Like many others, I do enjoy listening to music whilst snowboarding. I always have only one earbud in and have the sound at a reasonable level, so I still have full awareness of everything around me when hitting the slopes.
My usual issues with earbuds is that wire can easily get snagged which pulls the bud out of my ear. It is also a faff and untidy running the ear buds wire up through my coat, from the inner chest pocket, through my neck warmer and under my helmet.
This is why I love the Skullcandy Method earbuds! They are controlled by Bluetooth from a semi collar. The earbuds are on a short wire either side of the collar. The Bluetooth has a range of 33ft.
This was ideal as the earbuds fit snugly into the ear and they did not get loose when moving my head left or right. The sound quality was crisp, clean with reasonable bass. No complaints at all.
The collar itself is light, comfortable, with a slight flex. It is also sweat resistant. The collar also can control your phone allowing you to make and receive calls. It features volume control as well as a built in mic.
Also, no chance of the battery running out while on the slopes, as it has a whopping battery life of 9 hours.
The earbuds are very reasonably priced at only £49.99 and ideal if you like a tune while shredding!
You can purchase them directly from Skullcandy
