StickSkills said, "There’s usually one surefire way to make me despise a piece of gaming equipment, and that’s to play into the age-old stereotypes of the community. From the first time I laid eyes on the packaging, I was overcome with my usual knee-jerk reaction to the cringe-worthy “NEVER RETREAT,” and “NEVER SURRENDER” nonsense splattered all over sections of the box. And with a product name like PLYR 2, Skullcandy was just asking for me to hate everything about its latest wireless gaming headset. That said, I was wrong. I had to push aside my gut reaction to everything surrounding the headset, because underneath all that obnoxious marketing is a good product."
