Skullcandy JIB – Review

| Dynamic Driver |



 


🎧 We are reviewing the Skullcandy JIB, the most affordable model from Skullcandy.

The Skullcandy JIB features a single dynamic driver inside tiny housings.

The cable of the Skullcandy JIB is rounded and rubberized, with a basic construction quality and matching color with the housing.

The original version of the Skullcandy JIB is a wired headphone but the brand has recently released most of their all-time models in a wireless flavor, like the:

The housings of the Skullcandy JIB are fully constructed in plastic, which results in a very light overall weight. The 3.5mm plug is straight and conserves the same rubberized material and color of the cable.

Bass & Sub Bass

The Skullcandy JIB bass has a very important mid-bass and sub-bass, quite unexpected for such a plasticky and small earphone. Their bass is tuned to provide a powerful and fun response with the ability to cover absolutely any music genres, no matter how much bass-hungry it is.

Applying an EQ, there is a crazy amount of depth added and extra punchy response, be ready for a bass-only earphone though.

Putting the Skullcandy JIB through out our standardized basshead tests, they handled up to 30% of a Fiio amplifier maximum power (Fiio E12 Mont Blanc) incorporating an insane depth in their sub-bass but they were unable to reach basshead rumble and impact, remaining below the Sony MDR-EX650, Sony MDR-EX800st / MDR7550, Pioneer SE-CX8, Pioneer SE-CX9, Pioneer SE-CX7, Aukey EP-C3 and ELECOM EHP-CA3580.

Mids & Vocals

The Skullcandy JIB mids have warm mids with strong mid-bass bleed congesting male vocals and lower mids, still lower vocals do not sound extremely distant (if you do not weight their congestion).

Higher mids are sufficiently crisp and clear yet not typically harsh.

With an EQ there is a great improvement of mids with much less congested lower mids and more alive sounding vocals. Still expect a congested and mid-bass heavy sound

Highs & Treble

The Skullcandy JIB highs have are very dark and do not resolve detail. Clearly, their treble is recessed and will not provide a refined type of sound but will offer no piercing peaks (some sibilance is present).

An EQ adds some detail and mild brightness. Nonetheless their highs remain dark and a general muddy sound signature will always be present.

Sound Leak

The sound leaking out of the Skullcandy JIB is slightly stronger than most average earphones, this does not mean that they are extra leaking but consider this if you were searching for an earphone for library use.

Sound Isolation

The sound isolation provided by the Skullcandy JIB is fairly stronger than most normal earphones. They will not provide an absolute isolation on moderate or low volume settings, though.

Response to Equalization

The response to EQ of the Skullcandy JIB did not show substantial improvement on most of the audio ranges but it did achieve a very important empowering of their lower frequencies.
