You know what pisses me off? When people ask everybody else for their opinion on a tech device they would like to purchase, except me. I have been a tech geek all my life, yet nobody asks me anything. I feel humiliated when people act like I don’t know crap!
Actually I don’t know much, but being as broke as I am, I definitely know which product to buy that are of good quality, yet not so expensive that it’s going to break the bank. So I’ve decided to fuck everybody and just do unrequested reviews that nobody is going to read.
I’ve been inspired to do reviews when I bought my first Bluetooth earpiece that I instantly fell in love with. I was sharing with everybody how happy I was with my purchase. I wanted everybody to buy them, because of how good, convenient and cheap they were, but apparently nobody was as impressed as I was. Stupid idiots.
After that, I bought my first wireless headphones that I am madly in love with to this day. I am not going to tell you how good it is, because you are probably not going to be impressed anyway. I am just going to review it in the shortest, simplest way possible, and if you happen to be looking out for a good Bluetooth wireless headphone, you can buy it if you want. I don’t care!
So today I am going to tell you what I think about the—(drum roll):
Skullcandy Wireless Crusher Headphone
Disclosure: The links below contain affiliate links, meaning, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission of you click through and make a purchase!
The name itself sounds badass enough. This headphone looks cool, feels sturdy, sounds amazing and I love it. I bought mine in MediaMarkt in the Netherlands for 119 Euros in May 2019 and I’ve been using it for about three months. So I think I’m qualified to give an honest review about it.
What you receive:
The headphone comes in a pretty good solid hard box that you can definitely hurt someone with.
In the box you receive a manual, MicroUSB (Type B) charging cable, 3.5mm headphone cable with volume controller, a Skullcandy pouch and some other crap that you probably won’t need. (Perhaps you do need them, but I don’t remember what else came in the box. You can’t expect me to remember all things that are irrelevant. I am not a woman.)
Quality of the material
The headphone is pretty solid built. It’s not made of plastic, I can tell you that. I am not sure what it is made off, but you can bend and stretch it more than you probably ever will with normal use. It won’t make not even a small cracking sound, believe me. It is definitely made out of solid durable material. The soft cushions that looks like leather (I am not sure if they are leather or not, but they look fancy) will cover your whole ear, and even though it doesn’t have active noise cancelling, it will cancel out about 90% of ambient noise when you have something playing.
What I like about the Skull Candy Wireless Crusher:
1. You get about 40 hours of playing time with a full charge.
This is no joke. It’s a guarantee. The battery life on this thing is insane and is one of the main reasons I bought it. I’ve used this headphone on a 9 hour flight, and after that it still gave me about a week or more of playing time before I needed to recharge. I haven’t seen any other headphone that offers this much of play time.
2. It has bass you can feel.
You know how you feel bass when you put a subwoofer in the back of your car? This headphone gives you the same experience. It has a so called immersive stereo haptic bass that will literally shake your whole skull. It is great especially for watching movies. It has a base slider too so you can adjust the bass volume. Crank it up completely, and you will definitely be amazed at what this bad boy can do.
3. Plays decent music (Sounds great to me, but let’s go with “decent”)
Even though the headphone might sound better for playing movies, it plays pretty good music too. Unless you are someone who nitpicks on mid’s and highs and lows and sound of the saxophone and violin, the stroke on the banjo and the conga, then you probably need something more expensive. To the average user, this shit rocks.
4. Looks great, feels okay!
Some headphones look ugly. I bought the black one (there is also a white one that I find pretty ugly) and this one looks great. The headphone can feel heavy on your head, but you get used to it. It does expend, although I can imagine it not fitting on people with a humongous head or with a whole lot of hair. (Like a “back to the 80’s” afro or something.)
5. Re-charges quickly!
The headphone charges up completely in about two hours. I’ve heard some people say in reviews it doesn’t support quick charge, but 10 minutes of charging does give you about 5 hours of playtime. What more can you ask form this?
6. Has built in microphone.
You can take phone calls without the need to put the cable in, and phone calls sound super clear. (At least on my side it sounds clear)
7. You can be connected to multiple devices at the same time!
This is something I’ve never experienced with any other Bluetooth device I’ve owned. I currently have it paired on three devices, my laptop and two cell phones. It can be paired and connected to multiple devices simultaneously, so you can play something on your laptop, hit pause, then play something else on your cell phone. Notice that I said “hit pause”, because if you don’t, the other device will be muted out so sounds don’t cross over. This shit is amazing.
What I don’t like:
1. What the heck with the loose cables?
Let’s start with the first thing I don’t like about the headphone. Even though I find the design great, the only thing I don’t like about it are the cables (they are not exactly loose) but just hanging there waiting for an accident. I mean, why aren’t they covered up in some way? I really don’t understand why they are out there like that.
2. After some time if use, it can press against your ear and feel a little bit uncomfortable.
Even though it has comfy cushions on both sides of the ear, after a couple of hours of wearing it, you can definitely feel it pressing against your ear. You need to remove it for a second to give your ear a chance to breathe. Also, when you have it over your ear and nothing is playing, you can hear the sound of your heart beat. When you walk with it, you hear your footsteps pretty loud. These are not really cons, but worth mentioning, I think.
3. It doesn’t have NFC!
Isn’t NFC pretty much the standard nowadays? It should have NFC in my opinion!
4. It can cause interference when connected to multiple devices.
I don’t really know the cause of it, but sometimes I get interference. But it still plays well and with a 10 meters Bluetooth range you’re fine walking around the house with it, having it your phone in your pocket, or in backpack on your back.
5. It doesn’t swivel!
This is not really a con to me—I actually don’t like swiveling headphones— but I’m just mentioning it so you know. It doesn’t swivel but it does fold in in an Armageddon type of way you can put it away in his pouch or in your bag.
6. Too much base?
Even though I love the base this thing produces, sometimes it can get too intense. This is also not a con, because you can easily adjust it with the base slider.
7. Not good for porn!
I thought porn would sound good in them, but it doesn’t. Not that it sounds bad, but something lighter on your head might be better for when you are watching porn and playing with yourself. Just saying!
If you like what you read so far of this headphone and you are definitely interested in one, click here and it will direct you to Amazon where you can buy your own *brand new Skullcandy Wireless Crusher*. I’ve personally reviewed this item, so you can be sure to be getting the good stuff at the best available price!
If you don’t like the Wireless Crusher and you want something better—and you have deep pockets to afford it—you should check out the Sony WH-1000XM3 At the time of writing, these are rated as the best headphones on the market and they costs around $350 dollars. I haven’t tried them myself but they are rated at the best Bluetooth headphones out there. I am surely not spending $350 on no damn headphone.
If you are interested in the Sony WH-1000XM3 click here to head over to Amazon. I’ve found the best deal on Amazon, where you can get a well-reviewed new pair of headphone together with a 20.000 mAh Powerbank. It’s a pretty sweet deal.
However, there’s an even sweeter deal. If you buy the new Sony Xperia 1 on Amazon, you will get the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphone completely free, plus a phone cover and a 5500 mAh portable charger for about $1200. I mean, come the fuck on. There is no better deal than this deal right here! (The Sony Xperia 1 has got all top of the line specs, except for the 3300 mAh battery. Perhaps they sacrificed a bigger battery to keep a headphone jack on the phone. It’s still an unbeatable deal though.)
Note: I am a very lazy person. I don’t have time to edit my posts. If things I mentioned here changes in the future, I am not going to modify anything. Sorry. We can talk about it over some beers though. Well, you’ll have a beer, I will drink some juice. I don’t drink alcohol. It tastes like feet!
This wasn’t a short review after all. I told you, I am not very good at keeping things short. (Excepts maybe relationships….)
