2 Reasons For for Choosing the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2

Cheaper by $21

The Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 is $66.01 cheaper than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, $60.01 cheaper than the JayBird x4, $21.01 cheaper than the Motorola Pulse Escape and $60.01 cheaper than the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410.

Better Brand

Skullcandy headphones have an average rating of 72%, but Definitive Technology only has an average rating of 39%, JayBird only has an average rating of 58.8%, Motorola only has an average rating of 31.9% and Plantronics only has an average rating of 63.4%.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2

Heavier

The Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 is a 50g pair of headphones. That's 403g lighter than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 (453g), 29.3g heavier than the JayBird x4 (20.7g), 154g lighter than the Motorola Pulse Escape (204g) and 15g heavier than the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 (35g). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the headphones are, measured in grams (g).

Lighter headphones will be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

Smaller Driver Size

The Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 is a 10mm driver pair of headphones, and so does the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410. That's 40mm smaller than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 (50mm), 4mm bigger than the JayBird x4 (6mm) and 30mm smaller than the Motorola Pulse Escape (40mm). More ...

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a powerful pair of headphones.

Does Not Support Bluetooth

The Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 does not support Bluetooth, whereas the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the JayBird x4, the Motorola Pulse Escape and the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 do. More ...

The denotes whether the headphones support wireless Bluetooth communication or not.

Bluetooth allows you to stream music and audio directly to the headphones without the need for wires. This makes the headphones far more convenient and easy to use, and frees you from the restriction of an audio cable.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 has received a Kagoo Score of 78, whereas the JayBird x4 scored 84 and the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 scored 79.

Fewer Sellers

The Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 is only stocked by 7 stores, but the JayBird x4 is stocked by 9 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Over Four Years

The Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 is 18 months older than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, four years older than the JayBird x4, four years older than the Motorola Pulse Escape and three years older than the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410.

The cheapest price that we found for the Smokin Buds 2 in the United States is $8.99 and in total we found 7 prices for it.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the JayBird X4

Lighter

The JayBird x4 is a 20.7g pair of headphones. That's 432.3g lighter than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 (453g), 183.3g lighter than the Motorola Pulse Escape (204g), 14.3g lighter than the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 (35g) and 29.3g lighter than the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 (50g). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the headphones are, measured in grams (g).

Lighter headphones will be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

Bluetooth

The JayBird x4 supports Bluetooth (as do the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the Motorola Pulse Escape and the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410), whereas the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 does not support this feature. More ...

The denotes whether the headphones support wireless Bluetooth communication or not.

Bluetooth allows you to stream music and audio directly to the headphones without the need for wires. This makes the headphones far more convenient and easy to use, and frees you from the restriction of an audio cable.

Noise Reduction

The JayBird x4 supports noise reduction, and so does the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410, but the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the Motorola Pulse Escape and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 do not. More ...

'Noise Reduction' denotes how good the headphones are at passively cutting down external noise leaking into your music from outside. Please note this is different from noise cancelling - that is an active process, and far more effective. This uses foam and tight-fitting seals to block out unwanted noise.

The better the noise reduction, the less annoying background noise will affect your music while you're enjoying it.

5% Bigger Headphone Sensitivity

The JayBird x4 is a 99dB headphone sensitivity pair of headphones. That's 5dB bigger than the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 (94dB). More ...

'Headphone Sensitivity' denotes how effectively the headphones convert digital signals into audio noise - the higher the sensitivity, the louder the headphone output will be.

Better Kagoo Score

The JayBird x4 has received a Kagoo Score of 84, however the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 scored 77, the Motorola Pulse Escape scored 77, the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 scored 79 and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 scored 78.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of shops increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this pair of headphones.

Five More Awards

The JayBird x4 has received 5 awards from expert review sites, whereas the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 has received 2 awards, the Motorola Pulse Escape has received no awards, the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 has received 1 award and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 has received no awards.

A Little Better Expert Reviews

The JayBird x4 has an average expert review score of 84% based on 34 reviews, however the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 has an average rating of 78% (based on 9 reviews), the Motorola Pulse Escape has an average rating of 70% (based on 3 reviews) and the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 has an average rating of 82% (based on 12 reviews).

3 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

Trusted Reviews, Soundguys.com and PC Mag all gave the JayBird x4 a better review score. More ...

Trusted Reviews: JayBird x4 = 90% vs Motorola Pulse Escape = 70%

Soundguys.com: JayBird x4 = 86% vs Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 = 83%

PC Mag: JayBird x4 = 80% vs Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 = 70%

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the JayBird X4

Smaller Driver Size

The JayBird x4 has a driver size of 6mm. That's 44mm smaller than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 (50mm), 34mm smaller than the Motorola Pulse Escape (40mm) and 4mm smaller than the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 (10mm). More ...

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a powerful pair of headphones.

47% Shorter Battery Life

The JayBird x4 is an 8h battery life pair of headphones. That's 7h shorter than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 (15h), 2h longer than the Motorola Pulse Escape (6h) and 2h shorter than the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 (10h). More ...

'Battery Life' denotes how long the battery in the headphones will last before needing recharging (for wireless & active noise cancelling devices only).

A longer battery life means that the headphones will function for longer before needing recharging, making them more helpful for long journeys or work sessions.

Not Noise Canceling

The JayBird x4 is not noise canceling, however the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the Motorola Pulse Escape, the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 are. More ...

'Noise Cancelling' denotes whether the headphones actively filter out unwanted noise when in use.

Noise-cancelling headphones mean that far less background noise filters through to your ears. This makes music easier to hear, and can lead to improved concentration and productivity, as well as being nicer to use in noisy environments (such as airplanes).

Not Foldable

The JayBird x4 is not foldable, however the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the Motorola Pulse Escape, the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 are. More ...

'Foldable' denotes whether the headphones can be folded down into a small, portable form.

Foldable headphones are easier to carry or store when not in use, and are less likely to break through mishandling.

More Expensive by $60

The JayBird x4 is $39 more expensive than the Motorola Pulse Escape and $60 more expensive than the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2.

Older by Seven Months

The JayBird x4 is seven months older than the Motorola Pulse Escape.

Overall Review Rating is a Little Worse

The JayBird x4's average overall score is 81%, however the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410's is 83% (based on 12 reviews).

Worse Brand

JayBird headphones have an average rating of only 58.8%, whereas Plantronics has an average rating of 63.4% and Skullcandy has an average rating of 72%.

The cheapest price that we found for the x4 in the United States is $69.00 and in total we found 9 prices for it.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Motorola Pulse Escape

Bluetooth

The Motorola Pulse Escape supports Bluetooth, and so do the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the JayBird x4 and the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410, but the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 does not. More ...

The denotes whether the headphones support wireless Bluetooth communication or not.

Bluetooth allows you to stream music and audio directly to the headphones without the need for wires. This makes the headphones far more convenient and easy to use, and frees you from the restriction of an audio cable.

Noise Canceling

The Motorola Pulse Escape is a noise canceling pair of headphones (as is the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410), but the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the JayBird x4 and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 are not. More ...

'Noise Cancelling' denotes whether the headphones actively filter out unwanted noise when in use.

Noise-cancelling headphones mean that far less background noise filters through to your ears. This makes music easier to hear, and can lead to improved concentration and productivity, as well as being nicer to use in noisy environments (such as airplanes).

Foldable

The Motorola Pulse Escape is a foldable pair of headphones, but the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the JayBird x4, the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 are not. More ...

'Foldable' denotes whether the headphones can be folded down into a small, portable form.

Foldable headphones are easier to carry or store when not in use, and are less likely to break through mishandling.

Seven Months Newer

The Motorola Pulse Escape is three years newer than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, seven months newer than the JayBird x4, one year newer than the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 and four years newer than the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Motorola Pulse Escape

183.3g Heavier

The Motorola Pulse Escape has a weight of 204g, but the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 is a 453g pair of headphones (249g heavier), the JayBird x4 is a 20.7g pair of headphones (183.3g lighter), the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 is a 35g pair of headphones (169g lighter) and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 is a 50g pair of headphones (154g lighter). More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the headphones are, measured in grams (g).

Lighter headphones will be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

10mm Smaller Driver Size

The Motorola Pulse Escape is a 40mm driver pair of headphones, whereas the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 is a 50mm driver pair of headphones (10mm bigger), the JayBird x4 is a 6mm driver pair of headphones (34mm smaller) and the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 are both 10mm driver headphones (30mm smaller). More ...

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a powerful pair of headphones.

Significantly Shorter Battery Life

The Motorola Pulse Escape has a battery life of 6h, but the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 is a 15h battery life pair of headphones (9h longer), the JayBird x4 is an 8h battery life pair of headphones (2h longer) and the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 is a 10h battery life pair of headphones (4h longer). More ...

'Battery Life' denotes how long the battery in the headphones will last before needing recharging (for wireless & active noise cancelling devices only).

A longer battery life means that the headphones will function for longer before needing recharging, making them more helpful for long journeys or work sessions.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Motorola Pulse Escape has received a Kagoo Score of 77, whereas the JayBird x4 scored 84, the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 scored 79 and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 scored 78.

$21 More Expensive

The Motorola Pulse Escape is more expensive than the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 by $21.

Fewer Sellers

Only 3 retailers sells the Motorola Pulse Escape, but 9 retailers sell the JayBird x4 and 7 shops sell the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this pair of headphones, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Appreciably Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Motorola Pulse Escape is only 70%, whereas the average expert rating of the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 is 78% (based on 9 reviews), the JayBird x4 is 84% (based on 34 reviews) and the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 is 82% (based on 12 reviews).

Worse Brand

Motorola headphones have an average rating of only 31.9%, but Definitive Technology has an average rating of 39%, JayBird has an average rating of 58.8%, Plantronics has an average rating of 63.4% and Skullcandy has an average rating of 72%.

Worse Trusted Reviews Review Score

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Plantronics BackBeat GO 410

Bluetooth

The Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 supports Bluetooth (as do the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the JayBird x4 and the Motorola Pulse Escape), whereas the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 does not support this feature. More ...

The denotes whether the headphones support wireless Bluetooth communication or not.

Bluetooth allows you to stream music and audio directly to the headphones without the need for wires. This makes the headphones far more convenient and easy to use, and frees you from the restriction of an audio cable.

Noise Reduction

The Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 supports noise reduction, and so does the JayBird x4, but the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the Motorola Pulse Escape and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 do not. More ...

'Noise Reduction' denotes how good the headphones are at passively cutting down external noise leaking into your music from outside. Please note this is different from noise cancelling - that is an active process, and far more effective. This uses foam and tight-fitting seals to block out unwanted noise.

The better the noise reduction, the less annoying background noise will affect your music while you're enjoying it.

Noise Canceling

The Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 is noise canceling, and so is the Motorola Pulse Escape, whereas the Definitive Technology Symphony 1, the JayBird x4 and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 are not. More ...

'Weight' denotes how heavy the headphones are, measured in grams (g).

Lighter headphones will be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

80% Smaller Driver Size

The Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 has a driver size of 10mm, and so does the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2. That's 40mm smaller than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 (50mm), 4mm bigger than the JayBird x4 (6mm) and 30mm smaller than the Motorola Pulse Escape (40mm). More ...

The driver unit is the part of the headphone that converts the audio signal into actual sound. This attribute denotes the physical size of this driver unit, measured in millimetres.

A bigger driver unit means that the headphones will be capable of generating more sound, making them louder. It doesn't necessarily mean the sound will be better quality, just louder. However it's a good starting point if you're looking for a powerful pair of headphones.

Shorter Battery Life

The Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 is a 10h battery life pair of headphones. That's 5h shorter than the Definitive Technology Symphony 1 (15h), 2h longer than the JayBird x4 (8h) and 4h longer than the Motorola Pulse Escape (6h). More ...

'Headphone Sensitivity' denotes how effectively the headphones convert digital signals into audio noise - the higher the sensitivity, the louder the headphone output will be.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 has received a Kagoo Score of 79, however the JayBird x4 scored 84.

More Expensive by $60

The Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 is $39 more expensive than the Motorola Pulse Escape and $60 more expensive than the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2.

Less Retailers

The Plantronics BackBeat GO 410 is only stocked by 3 shops, whereas the JayBird x4 is stocked by 9 retailers and the Skullcandy Smokin Buds 2 is stocked by 7 shops. More ...
