Skullcandy Vs Airpods Pro

Skullcandy Push Active Earbuds Review

The Skullcandy Push Active earbuds are a great choice for those who want to get a good workout in while still wearing headphones. They are water-resistant (IP55) and come with a charging case, which provides 34 hours of additional battery life.

The Push Active also supports Bluetooth 5.0, which offers fast and efficient power consumption for long battery life. Its 360ms latency is acceptable, especially since it doesn’t support Bluetooth multipoint technology, but it might cause lag when streaming video on iOS and Android devices.

Compared to its predecessor, the Skullcandy Indy ANC improves upon its predecessor’s performance by adding a vent system for better airflow and to help prevent pressure from building up in the ears. These features aren’t available in other earbuds at this price point, but they make the Indy ANC comfortable to wear for hours on end, even when you’re sweating a lot.

They’re a little heftier than some other options, but they feel solidly built and are durable enough to last for a long time. They’re easy to use, too, thanks to a pair of touch sensors that allow you to trigger specific actions like playing, pause, and answering calls.

These earbuds are also comfortable to wear, though they may feel a bit loose in the beginning if you’re not used to them. You’ll need to install the right set of ear tips and adjust them properly to make sure they stay in place.

In terms of sound, the earbuds are pretty good, with a wide range of bass response and a solid sense of detail. They’re a little boomy in the lows and lack the high-end clarity of over-ear buds, but that’s not necessarily a deal-breaker.

The sound is also fairly natural-sounding, with a fair amount of midrange detail and an accurate representation of vocals. It’s not the most balanced or dynamic sound we’ve heard from an earbud, but it’s plenty good for the price.

They’re also compatible with Google Assistant and Siri, which is a nice bonus if you’re not as familiar with the technology as you would be with Alexa or Bixby. The only niggle is that the AI bot isn’t as responsive as we’d like.

During testing, the earbuds were able to detect our voice and respond accordingly, but only if we said “OK Google” or “OK Siri,” not both at once. That’s not a major issue, but it could be frustrating if you need to ask either or both for something frequently.

The earbuds’ controls are also minimal and don’t address everything that you might need to do with them. You can’t control music playback or activate digital assistants with them, so you’ll need to keep your phone near for other functions.

Despite its shortcomings, the Indy ANC is still one of the better pairs of noise-canceling earbuds we’ve ever tested. It doesn’t hiss or squeal as much as the AirPods Pro, and it can dampen a wide range of sounds from low to midrange without any noticeable problems.
