Skullcandy Hesh 3: Design
On the design front, the new Skullcandy headphones don’t look premium at all; however, it comes with a hefty price tag. There is no branding or logo present on the ear cups. But, a very light logo watermark is there on the left and right headrest.

The Skullcandy Hesh 3 has a wide soundstage. The ear cups are placed perfectly which provides good noise isolation. This means you can listen to music even while travelling on the train or in any noisy atmosphere. It will isolate most of the noise so that you can hear your favourite music very clearly and barely heed the outside ambient noise.
On the battery front, the Hesh 3 won’t upset you at all. The battery of the headphones can last for up to 22 hours on a single charge. Obviously, no one would listen to the continuous music for that much time. But, an average user who listens for about four hours a day can use these headphones for over four days on a single charge.
Also, the rapid charging feature is used to quickly charge and listen to music wirelessly. Even though the battery dies, you can connect it to any source using a 3.5mm audio jack. That is why the Skullcandy Hesh 3 is one of the best headphones in India.
All in all, the Skullcandy Hesh 3 is a good wireless headphone option. The battery is the biggest highlight of the headset and you can expect awesome music playback for long hours thanks to it. The noise isolation also works well so that you can only listen to the music and not the ambient noise.
On the audio performance, the Hesh 3 will never let you down. However, in this price range, you have a few better choices like Sennheiser HD 4.40 or Sony MDR-XB950B1 if only the sound quality is your priority.
