Skull Candy Crusher
Updated: a day ago
Playback controls are all fairly simple as with the Skull Candy Crusher, with three buttons on the right ear cup letting you pause/play music, adjust volume, skip between tracks, and access your phones personal assistant. The only problem with them is that they’re a little too 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 a lot of videos you don’t have anything to worry about.
Skullcandy claims a battery life of roughly 40 hours of constant playback, which would be fairly impressive all on its own. However, in a objective testing, it surpassed even that clocking in at 57 hours and 28 minutes. To be fair though, this was 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, ten 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. For the sake of testing, I kept the bass slider turned off so I can get a feel for how these sounded without any additional help. That said, 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.
Should you buy the Skull Candy Crushers?
Despite not being the best sounding headphones at this price point, I was really impressed by the overall package that the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless offers. They’re a solid alternative to anyone who wants a consumer-friendly sound without paying Beats 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, 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. You’re getting them for the crazy long battery life and the portable build. Plus, you’ll get some really good padding with these Skull Candy Crushers.
