The Sweet Sound of Skullcandy | So Yummy So Sweet

Skullcandy Crusher ANC

Skullcandy was founded in 2003 and is a few years older than Beats by Dr. Dre. Since then the art of bass heavy headphones has certainly grown. Skullcandy just released it’s new flagship model. The Skullcandy Crusher ANC (Active Noise Cancellation).

It has a slider that controls haptic bass response. Just so you know haptic means that, not only can you hear the bass, but you can feel it too. It rumbles just like if you have a two 10″ subwoofers and a 1,000 watt amplifier pushing them, in your car trunk. Which of course, I do…Yes,I am a basshead…Muhahaha….???

It also comes with digital Active Noise Cancellation, a free downloadable Skullcandy app for your smartphone so you can further customize your sound profile to your liking.

It also has a Tile tracker so if you left your headphones somewhere, your phone can locate it. And a claimed battery life of 24 hours with a quick charge of 10 minutes giving you 3 hours more of “bass” kickin’ music. Well, you know what I mean (wink, wink.).

Another thing that you should know. These bad girls are not only fantastically great for music, but they are outstandingly awesome for movies and gaming. These will definitely make you duck and cover when you put these on to immerse you in an action movie or perhaps your favorite FPS game.

Now about the bass….Woo Wee!!! This bad girl is wicked. She is a woman, do you know why I say that? Anything that will shake your soul, make your heart beat out of your chest, that will make your brain rattle and will make you cr@p your pants and have you smiling all the way. Then these Skullcandy Crushers ANC cans are for you…She’s a bad bitch and she knows it.This is why the Sweet Sound of Skullcandy is, So Yummy and So Sweet. You may want to smoke a cigarette after your encounter with her…I need a smoke just writing this…I mean these are STOOPID crazy!

Skullcandy Crusher

The Skullcandy Crusher is a durable and comfortable pair of headphones. A bit heavier than the competition. (Hahahaha! I don’t even know if there are any competitors against Skullcandy.) But I’m pretty sure that weight wont be a concern after trying these out for a couple of hours. Your concern will be, “Where I can I buy one?” From here of course…

These have a claimed battery life of an incredible 40 hours. Unreal. They also have a quick charge  where if you have a dead battery you just charge them up for 10 minutes and you should get 3 more hours of blissful basshead playback. For those who ask, these do not have the ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) in them. These have what they call Noise Isolating Fit. Which means that they wrap your ears completely in a memory foam earcup in a reasonably tight fit that no outside sounds can get in or out, for that matter.

These are great for music but absolutely outstanding for watching movies and gaming. With all the explosions, car crashing and general mayhem, you will be watching and listening in awe and better yet in total extreme immersion with these.

You must be a basshead to love these. Skullcandy has there out of this world haptic feedback, which is the ability to feel your bass and make you go down to your knees and pray for God’s forgiveness. It gets that intense. If you turn down the bass to its lowest you will enjoy a bass heavy balanced “happy” sound. When you move the bass lever up, also called (Adjustable Sensory Bass)…that’s when the magic happens. Oh mama! Oh mama! Many wont be able to take the max bass setting along with the volume at maximum. But you can try….Muhahaha…You’ll not forget the Skullcandy Crusher anytime soon…I’ll meet you on the other side.

Now these babies are a fine pair of headphones. They have some good qualities and some not so good qualities. First the good. This their first foray into using Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and these perform admirably. Just a smidge below the likes of Bose and Sony. Now those guys use stoopid and unreal electronics in their cans.

The battery life for these are very respectable. The claimed battery life is a really good 25 hours and have a quick charge of 10 minutes for an ungodly amount of playback of 5 hours…Nice.

They also have the locator app of Tile. You can track the whereabouts of your headphones and you can even ping them so it will chirp if you are nearby if you still cant find them. If they are on somebodies head…well, I’ll just leave that up to you on how to get them back. Tile is a free download available from Apple iTunes and Google Play stores.

The not so good qualities. The build quality is a bit questionable. They sound like a bowl of Rice Krispies when the headphones are twisted and stretched. And when I say Rice Krispies, I mean they Snap, Crackle and Pop! But after the test they held together just fine.

The mics for the phone sound a bit “walkie talkie-ish”. For some people this is an important part of having a set of wireless headphones. For others it’s just a minor inconvenience. That’s it for the not so good qualities for a headphones that cost $130.00.

Now the sound. These dont come with the Adjustable Sensory Bass. This is the model before that became available, but that doesn’t mean that the bass was left out of the sound profile. These have a more forward mids and highs as to not overpower the senses with bass. I know. I know. A skullcandy that doesn’t try and over, overwhelm you with bass? These cans are on sale now for $129.99. If you want to be overwhelemed it’ll cost you a bit more. But for many, that are not bassheads, these will be fine…Maybe.

Note

Listening to music is subjective. The sound that emanates from any of these headphones, earbuds, speakers and the like, will be different for each individual. So please be aware, what may sound good to me doesn’t mean it will sound good to you. Please read or watch reviews on any product that I showcase. Or listen to a friends’. Or, go to a retail store and try it out there. A little knowledge can go a long way…then you can buy from me. (Wink, wink)

  1. Wonderfully entertaining article! I was looking for headphones, and came across your post. I’m afraid these headphone are out of my price range; but I thoroughly enjoyed reading your reviews of these headphones.

    I admit it would be nice to have a pair of headphones like this. The Noise Cancelation alone would make me happy. Earbuds just don’t do the trick. Especially when there are teenagers around. : )

    Thanks for a great review!

  2. You definitely have the art of humanizing these Skullcandy headphones! And making them female no less ha! I not only got a great review but was also entertained. 

    I happen to own a Skulcandy Bluetooth headphones with the sound isolation memory foam cup. I love using it and take it everywhere I go. I use it mainly to watch video on my phone or tablet. However, I got these many years ago and they do not have a base control slider. Neither does it fold. Hence, one of these you reviewed would be a nice change. 

    Based on my own experience with the brand, you cannot go wrong with any of these headphones. The sound is truly amazing. I much rather listen to music from these headphones compared directly from the TV. Therefore I watch TV quite often using my hone or tablet. One characteristic I love about the Skullcandy headphones is the option to use a plug in cable. Do they offer a cable with a Lightening connector at one end suitable for use with an iPhone or iPad?

    Isn’t it interesting that the use of headphones was dominated with in the ear devices. I know that these are still popular, but I also see more people using the larger over the ears headphones. 

    Thanks for sharing information on these great Skullcandy headphones.

  3. thanks for such a concise article. The Skullcandy headphones are very good. They are not perfect, but then again, no brand makes perfect sets. They have unquestionable sound quality, cool and durable designs, great battery life, easy connectivity, special sound technology feature, and are affordably priced.You having one of it,will be a great idea, thanks best regards. 

  4. Yes! The sweet sound of skullcandy! And yes, these are some sweet headphones! I have a pair of the Skullcandy Crusher ANC headphones on the way. Now I have to wrestle with the thought of getting my son some as well. The active noise cancellation will be wonderful for me since I am in construction and they are really helpful on the gun range as well. At least my old pair was, so I imagine these are even better. I can’t wait to try them out! 

    Thank you!

  5. Wow! An amazing write up! Very interesting and captivating.

    Tour writing skills is superb, I love the way you described the headphone as a woman! It keeps one interestedTruly, the skullcandy crusher is something to get if you are a lover of music . The battery life is something else! It can last for 40hours and quick charge system is amazing.

    I will save up for it.

  6. These sound awesome (pun intended). Great post and some great information.

    I have been using skullcandy for about 10 years now and refuse to consider buying any other brand. They are just so reliable and always sound great.

    On saying that, my current pair of headphones is definitely looking worn at the moment. It is about time I put my hand in my pocket and bought a new pair. Skullcandy Crusher ANC will be winging their way to my head very soon.

    Thanks for the post!  It’s nice to meet another skullcandy fan!

     

  7. I’ve been looking into getting a good pair of headphones for a while now. I keep going back and forth between Skullcandy, Bose, and “but do I really need fancy headphones…?”

    What I like about Skullcandy is how well they fit. I’m very interested in this Noise Isolating Fit you mention, because it seems to me that noise cancellation just covers up ambient sound and doesn’t really stop me from hearing my noisy neighbors. Would the Noise Isolating Fit do that? And are the headphones tight, then? (I mean, would they possibly give me a headache?) Are there any other headphones that do this instead of ANC?

    1. In my opinion the Active Noise Cancellation is the way to go. The noise isolating fit is to stop sounds from coming in and going out. So the fit is a bit more aggressive. Meaning tighter. But after wearing them for maybe a few hours they should loosen up enough to be a comfortable fit.

  8. Excellent article. I had a pair of beats and they were ok, but probably not worth all the hype. Then the apple head phones don’t cover the whole ear. I’ve heard of skull candy just couldn’t remember who they were exactly. 

    The black are on sale so it is tempting to grab a pair of those, but I think the brown and silver look pretty cool. A little more professional look possibly? Either way great read. Thanks for the info

  9. I was searching for new head phones as my old ones have finally cratered.  So I end up on your page reading a fun article about head phones I had never heard of.

    Your article wasnt only fun to read but also very informative.  I am going to have to take a little closer look before ordering but the chances are good.

    Thank you for taking the time to write an article with such great detail

  19. Hello there. Awesome review. Purchased the bluetooth skullcandy headphones in the past. On my personal and work phone I can get a 6 ft gap before static.I enjoy it while running, rain, wind, wear and tear was all good. Lasted 2 years until my 1 year old used it as a bolas against my cats.I would purchase this again, however, i feel these are a one/two time purchase over a few decades. Quality products need maintenance and proper storage for longevity
