Skullcandy is a young company in the audio space as compared to many of the established names, having been founded in 2003 in the United States. The brand’s positioning and design language indicates a modern approach to personal audio products, with unique colours and pop culture-inspired styling. Skullcandy has now launched its latest product in India, the Skullcandy Push.
The Push is a pair of truly wireless earphones that come with its own charging case, and is priced at Rs. 9,999. The earphones are available at various offline and online retailers across the country starting today.
The Skullcandy Push has a design that is getting quite common in the segment with a largish charging dock. The design, though sticking to a pattern, is a bit unique. I tried to wear it the way I had worn the earlier one with a similar design and it felt that it would fall off any minute. Then I wore the EarPods a bit differently, almost pointing upwards, and everything was in place.
In this position the Push is a perfect fit and won’t budge even if you jog or engage in a workout session. The silicone fins are fixed and you can engage them in your earlobes to hold the earphones in place. There are LEDs to show if the EarPods are connecting.
users can Triple press either button to summon the personal assistant and send messages, set reminders, and much more. The buttons can also be tapped to answer and end calls. Pressing the left earbud for two seconds rejects calls, while the right and left buttons can also be used to turn up and down the volume of the earbuds.
As of now, the Skullcandy Push has been announced in Gray Day and Psychotropic Teal colours, both of which are priced at Rs. 9,999. As for availability, the earbuds are already available for purchase through offline and online channels starting today.
