Extreme Bass Boost - The Skull Candy Crusher Wireless Review
Updated: Oct 15
As soon as you hold these, you will automatically perceive a nice premium feel these Headphones have to offer. The Skullcandy brand isn’t exactly known for its luxury build. While the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless are made of cheaper plastic, they’re not nearly as bad as I thought they’d be, and I will Explain why down below, and why You should consider getting them on your next search for Bluetooth Headphones..
Playback controls are all fairly simple with the Skull Candy Crusher, with 3 buttons on the right ear cup letting you pause/play music, adjust volume, skip between tracks, and access your phones personal assistant, on the left ear cup you can adjust the bass with the slider function. For those who enjoy heavy bass with your music, these are the ones you are looking for. The only problem with them is that they’re a little loud when you click them, and you can even hear them over the music in some cases. On the bright side, there’s no noticeable audio lag when watching videos so if you tend to watch YouTube videos for long periods of time you don’t have anything to worry about.
The Skullcandy Crusher claims a battery life of roughly 40 hours of constant playback, which would be fairly impressive all on its own. However it surpassed even that clocking in at 57 hours and 28 minutes. To be honest though, this is with the bass slider turned all the way down, so if you think you’re going to be using pumping bass often you should expect a little less. The biggest downside here is that in order to charge them you’re going to have to use an older microUSB cable instead of the newer USB-C. While that may not be a problem for most people now, it will get a little more annoying in a few years when everything is USB-C. On the bright side, 10 minutes on the charger will give you roughly 3 hours of constant playback so if you forget to charge them overnight, it won’t take too long on the charger to get a decent amount of battery life back.
How is the Sound Quality?
While the sound quality of the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless isn’t what I usually prefer, I didn’t find it too bad here. They still have plenty of low-end emphasis which makes these great for bass-heads, especially considering that you can adjust the bass even more with the slider. The sound quality is good but not mind blowing.These are great if you love watching movies. You can here those punches, and booms in an Imax sound feeling. The Skullcandy Crusher Wireless aren't going to be the best sounding headphones you've ever heard, but for around 100 bucks they offer a decent build quality and insanely long battery life. Keep in mind prices change, so who knows when these could be in sale, especially with Amazon frequent price changes.
The Skullcandy Crusher Wireless has Bluetooth and a solid connection in everyday use, though there is some notable skipping once you’re wobbling around the 30 feet limit of the Bluetooth range which is to be expected. If you prefer a wired connection there’s also a 3.5mm input on the bottom of the left ear-cup dont worry, these come with the included wired cable if that is your concern.
Should you buy the Skull Candy Crushers?
Even though these are not the best sounding headphones at this price point. They’re a solid alternative to anyone who wants a consumer-friendly sound without paying Beats higher $200 prices. At the same time, they’re not a bad pair of everyday headphones either. While they’re not insanely well-made, they seem like they’d hold up well to everyday wear and tear. Plus,even though they're not noise cancellation headphones they also offer some decent isolation from outside noise.
If you can find them for less than $100, they’re not a bad buy as long you know that you’re not buying them for the sound quality.
