These are built with a premium quality material and it is definitely one of the best budget over-ear headphones.
The headphones are light in weight, easy to wear as well and come with an AUX cable which means you can use them as wireless and wired headphones according to your needs. This really makes them handy even after you have used up all the battery life.

The Sound Quality on these headphones is pretty good, I was a little skeptical as it was a budget headphone and it may not be as good as teh Bose headphones. However, it still is not as good as the Bose but it definitely is comparable and has an amazing sound quality.
One of the major differences between this headphone and the Bose headphones is that the Bass is more powerful in the latter. Although, I would want to mention that if you are not that obsessed with a powerful Bass then you will definitely love these Skullcandy headphones.
You have volume controls on the headset and you can even take up calls without any problems. The headphones have a pretty good connectivity range and hence you could easily use them for your gym sessions.
These headphones are not as such waterproof but they could easily handle sweat. Since they are not “Sports Bluetooth Headphones” you won’t have an IPX7 rating but they work well in sweaty conditions, so you can consider using them in the gym.
The headphones come with a dust bag which is really handy and you can put them inside the dust bag once you are done using the headphones. Most of us end up throwing our headphones in the gym bag but putting them in a dust bag instead could buy you a longer lifetime of the headphones.
I have maintained a few of my headphones and they have lasted me 2 years and they look good as new, so try to keep them in a dust bag or case as it helps a lot in the long run.
These Skullcandy headphones have aced in comfort. You can use it as a wireless headphone or if needed insert the AUX cable and use them like wired headphones. They sit comfortably and that is teh reason I would recommend these headphones in the gym.
