COMMENTARY: The original Hesh was one of Skullcandy’s factory sourced styles that was uber successful but incredibly flawed in terms of quality and reliability. We had up to 20% returns from snapped slide adjusters. Its the reason Skullcandy’s return policy was lifetime full replacement.
The HESH2 project had a few criteria; “keep the cans” (earcups), clean up the headband and engineer it so it doesn’t break. Mission accomplished in terms of criteria and there’s no doubt it’s a legend based on units sold and revenue its generated. The HESH2 has been wildly successful to this day just like the original.
