Verdict

Skullcandy Crusher Wireless Headphones are built with low price plastic, but they’re not as bad as you may think they’d be after knowing the fact.

They have a matte black coating that’s not a fingerprint prone. This device has solid earcup padding and faux leather on top of the headband.

I can tell you that just about anyone rocking these, which is something that we can not say about many headphones in this price segment.

Built Quality

The Skullcandy Crusher Wireless headphones come with folding hinges for a better portable way to carry.

Design

The overall design of the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless headphones is right up my alley. The only branding you will find is a prudent logo just above either earcup. The all-black option is understated enough to put on while in a commute or in the office without an issue.

The buttons of the headphones are surely made of the cheap plastic I thought, but the tactile response is nearly perfect. There’s also the bass slider on the left sideof the earcup that was stiff in my user experience and could be a bit smoother.

There is a second pair of drivers inside that only delivers low end haptic feedback, and this slider lets you control how much  extra bass you want.

On the headband there is a small cutout which makes the rubber plastic headband far more comfortable for long music sessions.

Besides that, the Crusher Wireless has folding hinges which make them compact for storing in your bag. Plus, I’m confident enough that these won’t get ruined by the other things in my backpack.

The padding on the bottom ide of the headband is built with a cheap rubber. The rubber will pull your hair sometimes. For me, it will remain my least favorite type of padding, But, these are not painful to wear for long listening periods.

Connectivity

The Skullcandy Crusher Wireless headphones have Bluetooth and a solid connection in day to day usage, though there is some noticeable skipping once you are roaming around the 30-foot Bluetooth range which is quite expected. If you like to have a wired connection there is also a 3.5mm jack available on the bottom eft earcup.

There are only 3 playbacks on the right earcup and a bass slider on the left earcup.

Playback Controls

Playback controls of the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless headphones are all very simple as well, with 3 buttons on the right ear cup will allow you to pause & play music, adjust the volume level, shuffle between tracks, and use your phones personal assistant.

My only issue with them is that they are a bit louder when you press them and in some cases, you can also hear them over the music. On the positive side, there is no audio lag when streaming videos so if you used to watch a lot of videos you don’t need to worry about it.

Headphone Jack & Charging Port

There are a 3.5mm input jack and a Micro USB charging port available on the bottom side of the left earcup in Skullcandy Crusher Wireless headphones.

Battery  Life

Skullcandy as a brand claims a battery life of nearly around 40 hours of continuous playback time, which would be really amazing.

However, in our comprehensive testing, it amazed us! It lasted almost around 57 hours and 10 minutes. We kept the setting as bass slider turned down, so if you are going to use pumped-up bass most often, you should get a  bit less.

The biggest drawback here is that you will have to use a Micro USB cable to charge it instead of the latest USB Type-C Cable.

But I think it would not be a big problem for the majority of the users now, it will get a bit more disturbing after some years when everything will be USB Type-C. On the positive side, 10 minutes on the charger will allow you to have almost 3 hours of continuous playback time.

So it will not take too much time to charge the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless headphones for a good amount of battery life.

Sound Quality

While the sound quality of the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless Headphone is not what I generally prefer, I did not find it very bad either.

As I was testing, I always kept the bass level turned off so that I can get the experience of how these sounded without any additional help. That said, these devices still have enormous low-end emphases which makes these great for bass-heads, especially here, you can adjust the bass even more with the slider.

While the isolation is not that great in the low end, these do a good job of blocking the higher frequencies.

The Skullcandy Crusher Wireless  Headphones put minimal emphasis on the lower end, with another dip around 600Hz as well.

Bottom Line

The Skullcandy Crusher Wireless  Headphones are not the best Bluetooth headphones that you’ve ever listen to, but for the price point, I have to tell you they offer a nice build quality and incredibly long battery life.

Some users want the best sounding pair of Bluetooth headphones, while some people need the greate battery life. Different people perceive sound differently, they have a few chosen go-to brands which they’d recommend.

The company Skullcandy is one of the most renowned audio companies in the world. Today, we are looking at the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless headphones which are one of the best pairs among all for its certain qualities.

So if you are someone who needs a longer battery life, quality sound with nice bass and brand value, you can check this out.
