SkullCandy Headphones: Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds to Have

Skullcandy Grind Wireless review:

Here is the review of the best true SkullCandy headphones, known for their mind-blowing features and fast connectivity capabilities. I am reviewing three best SkullCandy wireless earbuds that are making a big buzz around the world for being unique, comfortable, and highly functional.

Design

Talking in terms of design, the SkullCandy Grind wireless is quite similar to its wired counterpart, Grind. It comes in six different colors. Although the Grind is light, the construction is solid with a metal headband and plastic ear cups that show quality. It also manages to seal off some of the ambient noise but since it’s an on-ear model, don’t expect much isolation. It’s also comfortable despite being an on-ear model. 

It is a wireless model, but still, you get the option to listen to it in “wired” mode with the support of a cable that comes with it.

Microphone and Controls

You get volume controls along with a pause/play button on the right earcup. This is also where the microphone is located. To move tracks forward or back, you have to hold down the volume buttons. 

You get up to 12 hours of battery life with the SkullCandy Grind. While performing the call the Grind didn’t cause many problems, so it’s an OK headset for making calls.  

Pros
  • Lightweight
  • Comfortable
  • Microphone
  • Portable
Cons
  • No carrying Bag
  • Calls could be better

Summary

Overall the Grind wireless gives comfort and good sound considering the price. 

Skullcandy Hesh 2 Wireless review:

 The Skullcandy Hesh 2 offers reasonably good sound, especially considering it’s a Bluetooth headphone. 

Comfortable and good build quality

The noise isolation is good, and the Skullcandy Hesh 2 is comfortable to wear. The build quality is also commendable. Be sure to know that you don’t get memory foam, but instead it’s a regular foam along with faux leather. However, the headphones offer no discomfort at all during long listening times. 

 Along with the headphone, you get simple nylon carrying pouch and a cord that will enable you to use the Skullcandy Hesh 2 as a wired headphone.

Controls

On the right ear cup, there are three buttons along with a microphone. Through the power button, you can also accept a call and play/pause your music. The volume buttons also multifunction, providing you with the ability to advance/back your track when they are held down for 3 seconds.  This model has a control system like HTC Vive headset.

Hidden USB Port

The Micro-USB port, which is used for charging, is hidden neatly at the left earpiece, near the top. To access it you have to pull the headphone’s headband back and then connect the USB cable to the Micro-USB port. The fact that it is hidden is a nice thing to have, but it can get a little troublesome when locating it to charge it. 

Pros
  • Good sound for a very reasonable price
  • Decent battery life ( about 15 hours)
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Integrated buttons work well
Cons
  • Generic Design

Summary

If you are in the market for Bluetooth headphones and don’t want to empty your wallet for the Beats’ wireless headphones or the Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth, then the Skullcandy Hesh 2 is a good choice. As it is comfortable to wear and the sound is commendable as well. 

Skullcandy Indy Truly Wireless Earbuds review:

The Indy earbuds look a lot like the Anker SoundCore Liberty Air. There are some differences that set them apart though.

Stability gels

With the Indy, you get “stability gels” which may help some people to get a better fit. They may be unnecessary for some, but that’s no problem since they are removable. However, when they are removed, they may sink a little more down than required into the case and can be a little difficult in getting out.   

Comfort and Wireless connectivity

The Indy earbuds hold up quite well as a set of wireless earphones. They fit comfortably and are sweat and water-resistant with an IP55 certified rating. This makes them good for taking them out for a jog or when you are pulling weights at the gym. The connection is also reliable. 

Battery life and Touch Controls

The battery life will last you for about 4 hours. You also get an additional three charges from their case, which acts as a power bank for your earphones. However, the touch controls don’t work.

Pros
  • Half the price of Apple’s AirPods
  • Good wireless performance
  • Stabilizing gel for a better fit
  • Great fit.
  • Comfortable design to carry around.
  • Quick connection feature
Cons
  • Bass could be better

Summary

There may be better options for the money you are paying, but the Skullcandy’s Indy true wireless earbuds do have some commendable traits. They offer a good fit and excellent wireless performance at an affordable price. They are not tacky and clumsy, the connection is faster with their built-in Bluetooth device. These earbuds are second to none in terms of quality, performance, and action. If you use a   sound equalizer, you can adjust your songs or background play track though but it will always come out smoothly through the phones. The design delivers a balanced sound for the comfort of the users.
