Skullcandy Indy True Wireless In-Ear Earbud: A Complete Review
Skullcandy seems to have perfected the trade-offs a company must make to make a good product at a low price. This is the newest product – another pair of real wireless headphones, dubbed Skullcandy Indy True Wireless, and it has an almost completely different approach to real wireless headphones that matches Airpods more than their previous product. So how are they?
Who is Skullcandy Indy True Wireless for?
- Android users. If you use iOS, this is a worthy alternative to Airpods, since they are almost as convenient, but for Android users, it’s a great alternative. I would say that Airpods are better when they are in this business, but Skullcandy Indy True Wireless headphones are better when they are in your ears.
- People are looking for real wireless headphones for exercise. Although there are genuine wireless headphones designed for fitness, this is not the norm. With an IP55 rating, this is a good option for this crowd.
- Anyone looking for a gift for someone, Regardless of whether you think you will spend $ 79 on them, I am absolutely sure that someone could benefit if they received them as a gift.
Since I have a Xiaomi phone, I initially considered the ears of this brand. But by chance, in the store, the Indy model came across the Skullcandy ears. The full name is Skullcandy indy true wireless.
I bought it blindly, only on the basis of watching a couple of videos on YouTube, where bloggers unanimously say that this is a budget killer of Airpods and that if they fit your ear, then you are lucky.
I had a budget limit (I bought with a special certificate that cannot be used online). At that time, there was nothing else in the store.
According to the results of more than 2 months of use, I can say that for $84 – these are really good headphones for those who do not bathe on the subject of a thin leg and design that cannot be grasped with fingers. Ah yes: and do not wait for the order.
Yes, the box at Skullcandy Indy is larger than the others, but this aspect does not bother me: I carry them in my bag.
It is important to notice that there are three indicator light points that indicate when it is necessary to charge the case itself. The headphones in practice withstood far more than 3 hours of listening to music and talking as a headset.
The box itself gives three full charges of the headphones and for the gym mode, three times a week + chatting with a friend for an hour a day is normal. I charge the box once a week. The lid of the box is magnetic, holds tight. There were no accidental discoveries.
The headphones themselves sit well in the auricle: you can jump and run, twist your head.
A special rubber nozzle holds well and does not crush(personally to me). Everything is made of matte plastic: pleasantly tactile, fingerprints almost invisible.
The volume level is decent, I usually listen at 70-80 percent. I won’t write about the perception of music (treble and midrange and bass). Since this is subjective, and of course, my past Sony 310s, of course, gave a richer sound, but were uncomfortable.
The same model allows you to listen to music, but not fall out of reality around. That is, it is possible in them to walk along the street and hear sounds in a natural way, and not when the sound of the street is broadcast through the headphone.
Skullcandy for me is an excellent ratio of price, quality, and characteristics for use in different conditions.
Using one earphone as a hands-free, for example, is very convenient. Headphones have moisture and dust protection (IP55), so they are well suited for the hall.
Opinions were divided on the quality of the sound from the microphone: my mother categorically does not like the way she hears me, my friend is one hundred percent satisfied with my conversations. Whom to believe – I do not know) apparently, everything here is also very subjective.
The first day I had difficulty connecting: the headphones themselves to each other, and then they began to lose touch with the phone. But then this problem disappeared.
Management is simple: volume, switching and stopping tracks. If the headphones are outside the box but are not used, then they themselves turn off after a while.
Of the shortcomings, I can only mention that the headphones have a micro-USB connector and the fact that if you are called via Skype or WhatsApp, you can’t answer the call. But maybe the second one can somehow be customized, and I just don’t know-how.
I understand that sometimes a little thing is very important when choosing, so if you have questions, ask in the comments.
