With so many brands on the market now coming out with wireless headphones, it might be impossible to decide which one to choose out of, perhaps literally, hundreds.
This is where it is important that you determine exactly what it is that you are looking for in a pair of headphones. Do you want a pair that have a nice design, or does the design not matter so much for you? It is easy to assume that you will want something that claims to have longer battery life. How about controls? Does it matter to you what kinds of controls your device has?
A good pair of headphones that offers all of these are the Skullcandy Crushers. While many people complained about the sound quality of the bass in their music, most agreed that, despite that, the headphones were decent quality for headphones that are considered to be mid-priced. A lot of people in general like Skullcandy’s headphones, because while they aren’t from one of the more expensive and best-quality brands, they do provide many of the same features for a much lower cost.
- Compared to many other headphones of their type, the Crushers are rather affordable
- These headphones are comfortable to wear due to the extra padding
- The headphones have a nice design
- These headphones have long battery life, claiming to last for up to 40 hours
- The haptic bass in these headphones doesn't sound great to many people
- Others claim that these headphones easily get marked up and scratched
The headphones also have a pretty long battery life at about 40 hours. The length that your battery lasts will depend on how loud you listen to your music, but it is very easy to charge them up again. The chances of having the headphones die on you are very low, and you also can listen to music while the headphones are charging, thanks to their Bluetooth capabilities.
The headphones do not have such great noise isolation, which means that you will still be able to hear many of the things going on around you when you use these to listen as audio. You will also experience some leakage- not as bad as you would with using other headphones, but it still will be there especially if you turn the music up louder.
As far as the sound goes, the bass is really overwhelming and could cause you to not be able to hear the person’s vocals at all. And some people said that the sound seems to be a bit unrefined. The sound, overall, is not very balanced. It is recommended that you keep the bass slider down at its minimum setting if you choose to use these headphones to not be completely overpowered with the bass.
There is no app that is compatible with these headphones that would allow you to customize your settings or any other features you would want with the headphones.
They also do not come with a base or a dock.
However, the headphones also come with a cable which has both a remote and a microphone. You can use them for your different devices, including a PS4, Xbox, and PC.
The earcups and the padding on the headband are both made out of faux leather. Many people were pleased with the comfort of this padding and said that they did not experience discomfort after having had worn the headphones for several hours at a time. This is the case even though the headphones do sit more snugly on your head and ears. One thing that some people did notice, though, was that the plastic materials on the headphones were more susceptible to getting marked up and scratched quickly, which sometimes caused the headphones to look like they were made out of cheap materials.
The headphones do fold nicely, though, so if you plan to take the headphones with you somewhere, you will have a thick and waterproof bag to carry them in.
However, other people did say that the headphones were made of better materials than others provided by the brand, and were likely to be able to withstand being dropped a few times without getting any marks or damage on them.
Something else that people mentioned was that you really don’t want to touch these headphones if your hands are dirty, or even have something like makeup on them. This is because the headphones were likely to get dirty if you touched them with dirty hands. Make sure that you wash your hands before handling these headphones.
Another thing to consider is that some people said that these headphones have cables that are somewhat exposed near the ears and headband, which could potentially get caught in your hair or clothes.

-You are able to use a microphone, and control tracks, calls, and the volume.
