Skullcandy Shrapnel Splash and Drop Resistant Wireless Bluetooth Rechargeable Portable Speaker – Camo/Olive/Slate – Fantastic sound quality

I have had it around a week now and i use it around the house. Its sturdy, really easy to use and i’ve paired it up with all my devices at home. Its good that you can take a call on it, i haven’t had the need to do this yet but seems a useful extra. It’s loud enough for its size and the sound quality is good. I can see it being a really good item to take on your travels with you. I got mine for £25 so i feel it was a bargain.

Love this speaker so much i bought another one, excellent product turns your phone into a boom box. On full volume no distortion. You will not be disappointed.

Sound is not as clear as i expected. Haven’t tested shock and water yet, but otherwise seems good as promised. Will update my review as soon as i try the rest of the features.

This is an awesome piece of kit. Its surprisingly loud and is good quality. The battery life is excellent, i charge it via my phone micro usb and i use this everyday when i am getting ready for work and i charge it about once a month, battery life is excellent. Skullcandy have really delivered on this and i absolutely love it.

A decent product for the price. Brilliant sound quality and volume. Connects easily and quickly. The advanced features (microphone, track skip, pause, etc) put this above any other speaker i’ve purchased before.

We travel a lot and we needed a sturdy wee bluetooth speaker and this is brilliant. I love skullcandy products and this did not disappoint. The sound quality is really good, it feels sturdy and the battery life is great.

  • I love it.
  • Great piece of kit!
  • Great wee speaker.

Bought for my husband for christmas to listen whilst fishing. Great size, easy to set up and being camouflaged is a bonus for a fisherman. Only used at the weekend so can not comment on battery life.

Brilliant speaker, well built, sound quality is better than any bluetooth speaker i’ve ever had. It’s so good this is the second one i’ve purchased and the first one is still going strong. I’ve taken it abroad and it’s usually found at the bottom of my backpack so takes a good beating. Also used at pool side so is splash proof too.

Sound is good until you compare with jbl or boss, sound is 5w it suitable for small rooms.

Skullcandy Barricade Mini Bluetooth Wireless Portable Speaker – /Dark /Tan, Five Stars

Well amazed with this speaker, great sound and great battery life. Highly recommend it to everyone.

Bought this for my son to use for something that won’t break easily and can live up to the lifestyle he has and it has not failed. It’s a great 5 watt speaker with clear sound that doesn’t become muffled when you turn up the volume to full. It is light and can take a battering and it’s great that it’s really water proof so he take it to the beach and not need to worry about it. Lovely little speaker and great value for money, we did by the skull candy shrapnel but it wasn’t loud enough for him. Definitely worth the extra £10 for the extra two watts. Would recommend this for people with a budget of £50 and below.

Awesome for such a small speaker.

Comments from buyers

“I tried 4 speakers side by side get this one!
, Good speaker , fair price
, Good base

Amazing sound and base for such a speaker.

Brought as a replacement for one that had stopped charging up. Previous one had lasted for years, hope this one does too. Excellent sound and quality, would recommend to anyone.

The sound is great for this size. I’m really pleased with the product.

12 year old son very pleased with the sound.

Great for the price, use all the time.

Loved it so much i bought a spare for my daughter who kept stealing mine. Really good sound quality and easy to connect.

Excellent just need to try it next but christmas present so will have to see now tried and tested easy to set up and great sounds would recommend.

Perfect for my son’s bedroom.

I send a lot of time traveling due work and work in some harsh weather conditions which can change day. Have dropped it, flooded it and it still keeps banging out those tunes while i work.

Great sound and easy to set up.

If you are after quality, don’t bother with this one. I bought 4 different speakers from amazon (3 from warehouse and 1 brand new) to test. Long story short, get the skullcandy barricade mini. Anker soundcore mini sounded very. Jbl go+ was very good by itself, but next to the skullcandy, it’s not good enough. Sc barricade sounds a bit richer, more ‘meat’ to the sound comparatively.

Great product from skullcandy, slightly larger than expected but more than happy with it.

Easy to use, great sound quality.

Skullcandy Barricade Bluetooth Wireless Portable Speaker – /Transparent : Great quality portable waterproof speaker – a little limited in bass and quite pricey

I’ve had quite few bluetooth speakers at various price points. This one is quite expensive for a smaller speaker, but i think it is good value as i have found the performance to be outstanding. The dimensions are fairly square. It’s a little shorter than and iphone 6 and a little wider, and the depth is about the same as the width of the iphone. It sits nicely either landscape or portrait. There are simple controls along one side with power, volume, and connect/answer (i’ve not used it for voice calls). There is a rubber cover to the ports (as the speaker is water resistant) offering aux in and out, the charging port and a usb out to charge other devices (not really much use). Taking into account the size of the unit i think the sound quality is excellent and smooth. Bass will never rattle the windows on small speakers but i found it perfectly acceptable. The kids really like it to take out with them and for a bedroom speaker it’s a great option.

Easy to set up, despite fairly poor instructions being provided. Volume up and down controls are obvious. I prefer to use my tablet or phone to change tracks, although this can be done using the volume controls. Sound for a box this size is excellent and certainly loud enough for my needs, although some other reviewers have questioned this. Haven’t dunked it to see if it’s waterproof, but have used it out in the garden and wouldn’t be too worried if it was caught in a shower. Overall, very good, versatile little speaker. Don’t know i’d want to lug it about on walks and the like, but for static outdoor activities, camping, caravaning, fishing and the like, it certainly would be a useful addition. Skullcandy barricade portable speaker – black/transparent.

Skullcandy Barricade Bluetooth Wireless Portable Speaker – Black/Transparent

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Delivers seamless integration with any Bluetooth enabled device
  • Skip the cord and listen longer with up to 8 hours of rechargeable battery life
  • A 10 W speaker and dual passive radiators work in concert to create powerful, dynamic sound with low end bass
  • A rugged design that’s impact resistant, buoyant and IPX7 waterproof up to 3 feet underwater
  • Multi-speaker connect: Connect multiple speakers for music as loud as you like

Lots of connectivity options: aux, aux out, micro usb and usb. I have tested it listening to trance from the ‘markus schulz – global dj broadcast’. Kick drums and basslines sound very punchy. I really liked using this for netflix. You can hear all small details. Moving the speaker face up will help disperse the sound. Filling a bigger area, making it more immersive.

Good sound quality goes about aloud as my sonos 1. Slightly bigger than expected but at the same time nicely compact.

I’m very, very pleased with this. I started off by using it in our kitchen while cooking, paired with my windows mobile phone (a nokia lumia 930). Mainly for things like podcasts and audio books – and the occasional blast of music. It pairs very quickly with my phone, has great sound quality, and when you want to blast out a few songs, has actually pretty impressive power for it’s size. Just that, on it’s own, was enough to make it an incredibly useful addition to our kitchen. And then i figured out that you can actually make calls with it. If i receive a call on my phone, the music / audio book stops, and when i answer the call the barricade acts as a handsfree bluetooth unit – and according to my wife, the quality on the other end is actually pretty good. These two things are pretty awesome, and totally sell the unit to me. And then i figured out that it can take an 8 hour charge, and that i could take it with me in the car, or on a camping trip, or to a hotel room. On top of that, it looks good, and it’s robust. Skullcandy – it’s a great product, really. Very pleased to have one, and i’d give it six stars if i could.

Skullcandy Barricade Bluetooth Wireless Portable Speaker – Black/Transparent : Good quality for the money very pleased.

Very handy and sturdy device. I haven’t tested it in water yet as i don’t want to really test fate. It’s not too big either so i can pack it to take away as i can’t sleep without something playing in the background so this is very handy. As it runs off a rechargeable batteries so don’t have to scrabble around for a nearby plug. It has a nice clean sound and can get very loud as well so i can use it at guide meetings.

Amazing sound quality for such a compact speaker.

The skullcandy barricade is an excellent portable speaker. It’s reasonably small – about 10 by 12 by 8 cm – yet the 10w speaker still provides a loud punchy sound, more so than its dimensions might suggest. The speaker grill is metal, the main body plastic with a rubberised top, bottom and edges. A rubber port protector over the various sockets, rubberised buttons on top and a raised rubber ridge on the base means it sits firmly wherever it’s put. Advertised as ipx7 water resistant – which actually means it should survive full immersion. With that in mind it would easily withstand a heavy rainshower with no trouble. The aforementioned ports consist off a 3. 5mm out (allowing dual connection of speakers), a mini usb port for charging the speaker and a full size usb port which can be used to charge another device.

The sound quality and volume ranges are very good. The connection via bt is ok – i live in a flat and can get a signal 2 thirds of the way from one end to the other (or if i put my tablet in the middle i can move the speaker to every room and with doors shut). There are only a couple of buttons and the work intuitively this is not too small but also not obtrusive. Currently it is hanging on a kitchen cupboard door. This is a marked improvement over listening to my tablets speakers. It loses a star because i would love it to have micro sd card reader and then it would be perfect.

What’s good:sturdy and well-madewaterproofergonomic controlsthoughtful design toucheswhat’s not so good:output power for charging a device is too low to be usefulbass performance is limitedan integral card-reader would have been a nice featureexpensive compared to competitionpackaging could be betteri really like this little speaker. What it lacks in bass performance and wholesome sound, it easily makes up in sensible design and seemingly great build quality. After demolishing the outer packaging to get in (which could really be improved upon) you are presented with a nice compact boxy speaker which has a good sturdy feel about it. There are slightly rubberised feet on two sides to help it sit stably on a surface, and there is a useful canvas hook on one side. The controls are simple with a power button, a plus and minus button which double up as track advance and track rewind, and a middle button that functions as the play/pause or call answer button. Under a water-sealing flap there are the charge in micro usb socket, as well as a full-size usb output socket – this is a bit of a non-starter for me because it cannot put out enough power to make it useful, especially given the power draw of most modern audio-hosting devices such as smartphones. For an older phone that doesn’t require strong charging power it might be sufficient. Connection can be made either with a 3. 5mm audio jack (in which case the waterproofing will be compromised), or via bluetooth. I generally use bluetooth and found the performance to be perfectly adequate.

This speaker is hands down the best bluetooth speaker i have ever owned. It gets really loud, and on max on both the speaker and my phone, it doesn’t distort the audio. This item is a must have for and audiophile.

Good sound given its small size.

Its a strong little speaker, not much to say about it really. The design is fun and the sound quality is excellent.

Love it nice n loud as all skull candy items are instructions are there you gotta really look tho lol.

Bought for my daughter (15) and she is very happy with it. Sound quality is great for the size, the build quality is excellent, and battery length is very impressive. One thing to note is that the buttons are actually on the bottom and double as feet, the symbols on the top are just decorative, therefore it needs to be on a flat surface so that when you press the symbol on top the button is pushed underneath.

Good product, fast delivery.

Great quality, very easy to use.

Use it almost everyday for watching things on the laptop.

Very good design, easy to use but no perfect sound.

Sounds good and volume is decent. Can only connect to one device at a time. Everytime you want to connect another device you have to keep holding button which is annoying if you have to change device.

So easy to connect to my iphone. Amazing sound as good as skull candy headphone 😃10/10.

Bought this for my brother, he loves it, works well and not bad sound quality.

Very loud, good sound quality, i love it.

Impressive sound for such a tiny speaker. I can’t get my computer to work with it, but fine with apple iphones, samsung phones and ipods.

Not bad, not exactly the best sound quality.

Ideal for taking on holiday.

Skullcandy 2XL Ringer tooth Active, Great little speaker for the price. Definitely recommended.

Wonderful product or service , good vendor , many thanks.

Excellent little speaker for the price tag. I have had mine for very little extra than a thirty day period now but i have no faults with it. Audio good quality, for a £10 speaker, is excellent and it can be portability indicates you can use it any place. Bluetooth array has been rather good for me so considerably, as i wandered off into the next place with my cellular phone in my pocket devoid of any challenges.

Excellent worth, magnificent seem. This is the 2nd 1 i have bought, wonderful worth, great seem high-quality.

Excellent solution, cheap value and fast shipping and delivery. Speaker actually loud and easy to link by means of bluetooth to android cell phone. Would definately advise this product or service and (techheaven) vendor.
