Expensive Skullcandy wired earphones come with signature bass output.
The year 2019 has seen so many earphones brands launching their products with a big bang. At present the market is now flooded with so many brands offering headsets or earphones tuned with the varied lifestyle from office to sports.
In this article, we are going to conduct a
The Skullcandy Set earphones come with a variety of features, primarily being the IPX4 water resistance making it an ideal workout companion. The product comes at a price of Rs 2,999 which is not so cheap. Here we present our review observations.
Design and Build
The Skullcandy Set is sporty in-ear headphone. These are not wireless but are a regular 3.5mm audio jack-type that’s compatible with a wide variety of smartphones available in the market. However, if you do happen to own the latest iPhones or other Android smartphones that don’t have a port, then you have to use a dongle in addition.
The Set comes in four colour options — Black/Red, Speckle/Black/White, Speckle/Black/Mint and Vice/Grey. In for review, we received the white and red combination as can be seen in the images.
As far as the overall design goes, it’s a pretty standard affair. That is until you see the in-ear monitors. These buds are definitely designed to be sporty as they feature the Skullcandy logo emblazoned in the maroon hue on the outside. The ear tips are also dressed in the same colour scheme which offsets the entire look. Attached to the buds are ear fins which the brand has dubbed FitFin Gels. These help them stay securely locked in the ear without budging.
Also, the in-ear monitors are angled to output sound directly in the ear canal. The FitFins and ear tips provide a passive noise isolation feature that virtually blocks out any ambient sounds. This is great for focusing on your workout as you can be sure that the earbuds won’t fall out no matter how strenuous your movements are during workouts.
The Skullcandy Set is water resistant with an ingress rating of IPX4. These make them sweat and rain resistant allowing you to have an intense workout without worrying about any water damage. However, it’s best not to try the product during torrential rain as it may damage the product.
There’s an in-line microphone with a single button layout that can be used for answering and receiving phone calls as well as pause and play audio tracks.
Lastly, the cable is built quite strong this ensures that even if it gets snagged on gym equipment and such; they won’t break. The gold-plated 3.5mm audio jack is placed in an L-shaped housing which helps keep the cable intact when your smartphone is in your pocket.
Overall, the Skullcandy Set is designed for activity and you can be sure that it will survive any accidental snags or pulls.
As mentioned earlier, the ear bud tips have a design that enables sound directly in the ear canal. This helps in providing a detailed audio experience without the bother of interference from outside noises. Based on this design alone; makes the Set a pair of earphones that’s worth your consideration. The audio quality is great but if you are an audiophile, this may not appease your standards and its best kept at a distance.
All Skullcandy products come with a signature bass which is its prime feature. Elaborating on the bass it was observed that it had the desired punch and pronunciation.
In the overall earphones are a real performer for those who have gym, workout and sports as part of their regular routine. However, it is expensive at Rs 2,999. The design is good and the audio quality is pretty solid. But the drawback of high price makes us to look at other brands in the market. At this price there are wireless earbuds also available. We feel Skullcandy must re-visit its pricing and introduce a lower price for this product. Selling high priced product in a highly competitive market is not going to penetrate the market further in this segment.
