Truly Wireless Earphones are the new trends which companies like Samsung and Apple have been in investing in lately. Brands like Nokia, Sennheiser, and Blaupunkt also came into the picture lately. And, recently Skullcandy has joined this bandwagon too.
At the price tag of Rs. 9,999, the new Skullcandy Push truly wireless earphones might raise the competition in this segment of earphones. But, is it still a worthy option to buy against Samsung and Nokia truly wireless buds? Let’s check it out in the Skullcandy Push review below:
Skullcandy Push Design and specifications
Skullcandy Push is truly wireless earphones like some we saw in the past. You get two earbuds and a charging case to store and charge buds with the box. The set looks pill-shaped and gives you Skullcandy feel totally. These are little large but plastic keeps them light.
They are very comfortable in ears and feels good too. Each earbud has a button and an indicator light. Yes, they don’t feel as good as the Samsung Galaxy Buds and the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds. You get this set of earphones in two colors: grey and green. You can buy this online using Croma Voucher with great discount.
These earphones are water-resistant but there is no IP rating mentioned on the box. The earphones support Bluetooth 4.2 and SBC codec. Sadly, it doesn’t support higher codecs like AAC or aptX. The product has a frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz.
The single button on the outer side of each earbud controls power, pairing, volume, and music playback control. A double-press controls the volume while the single press plays/pause the music. And, a long press skips or takes you to the previous track. There is no auto-pausing when you remove earbuds out of your ear. So, you need to pause your music manually.
Talking about the charging case, it feels cheap and stands nowhere against Nokia’s and Samsung’s truly wireless earbuds. It feels cheap and looks very weird. You get to see an indicator LED on the front of the charging case and also sports a USB Type-C port.
Also, the charging case doesn’t have as much power as its competitors. You can get around 6 hours of usage on a single charge. The case can give you only one charge which is not something we vouch for. Although, you get an above-average battery life while the case is pretty cheap.
Skullcandy Push Performance
Skullcandy Push is not like the Samsung Galaxy Buds and Nokia True Wireless Earbuds when it comes to build and charging case but it is very good in terms of performance and sound. The Skullcandy earphones are known for their sonic-signature with favorable bass. Skullcandy Push depicts that with ease and you get good bass in lows but bass gets aggressive at high notes.
Skullcandy Push responds to bass very well and sounds gentle to ears otherwise. You get to hear the music clear and fine tunes at lows. In the energetic songs, the bass does overpower the music sometimes which doesn’t sound good and feels itchy in ears. All said Skullcandy Push can handle all kinds of tracks very well.
The mids come out clear, clean and well-defined. You can easily get to know the lyrics by listening to the songs- that clear. In terms of performance various options available in the market and one can buy those using Paytm Coupons with great deals.
On voice calls, Skullcandy Push doesn’t deliver nice and clean sounds. On the receiver end, people aren’t able to listen to voices clearly and background noise itches too much also. It means that microphones integrated into it aren’t good.
