Skullcandy Indy In-Ear Headphones have a fun and powerful sound and feature to isolate surrounding noise, and they have a great performance, but the design is not the best thing.
Fast Talk (Skullcandy Indy Truly)
We got to know the Skullcandy brand in the space of true wireless headphones with the release of the Push Truly Wireless headphones, where Manu had many advantages, as their fit was excellent and their noise isolation was great, but the bass was very loud and messy.
Then the Skullcandy Indy wireless headphones took up a completely different design from the previous version, as it features a black in-ear design from Apple AirPods with a microphone / battery leg pointing down.
The Skullcandy Indy in-ear headphones are an in-ear headphone that requires a good seal for good sound quality and noise isolation, but unfortunately we didn’t like the design very much.
The Skullcandy Indy earbuds are priced at $ 80 (£ 70; roughly AU $ 128).

Skullcandy Indy Truly: Design isn’t too good, but it has ip55 rating
In terms of design, we found that the headphones Skullcandy Indys are very similar to the Apple AirPods, for example, both headphones feature long legs pointing down which also includes the microphone and batteries, and the controls are similar in touch as well, but the only difference is that the Skullcandy headphones Indys really lets you adjust the volume and control playback.
And when we ran several tests, we Find that the design of the Skullcandy Indy earbuds is not the best thing, as the design in the ear and the long legs mean that getting a good fit is very difficult, during the test we did not get a good fit for more than a few minutes at a time, due to The stems rest on your jaw, causing the headphones to slip out of place when you yawn.
And we found that the goal of the interior design is that you have to insert headphones into your ears to get the best sound quality and noise isolation, and this would provide you with the greatest amount of bass response and noise isolation.
We also found it extremely difficult to remove the headphones from the case without further grasping the ear gel because the magnet is
As for the box, we found that it is quite bulky compare With the most true wireless headphones, you will feel uncomfortable when you put it in your pocket, and it allows you only about 16 hours of total listening time, while competitors allow more than 24 hours of total operation of cases. Similar size.
The battery life of the Skullcandy Indy earbuds isn’t the best, and another thing that disappointed us is that the case also charges via microUSB instead of USB-C, which is annoying if you want all of your devices to use the same type of cable.

Skullcandy Indy Truly Performance: Bass heavy
As for performance, we Find the sound quality of the Skullcandy Indy headphones to be enjoyable, especially when you came with a lot of bass.
Bass is taking center stage with Indy, and this is a well-known piece of information about most Skullcandy products. We found that it helps make the music exciting, but it is imprecise and can be stressful after a while.
Upon testing, we Find that when some of the mid-range frequencies are block by bleeding in the bass in the recording, the highs come alive without being harsh. It also rolls slightly, meaning that it may lose energy at the upper end of the frequency spectrum.
This helps not to hear the high-pitched sounds harsh, but despite that it hinders
the details, but in general we Find that the sound quality was soft thanks to the heavy bass setting and lack of accuracy.
But what we didn’t really like was that the sound stage is so narrow and the music
seems to come from the center of your head instead of around you, due to a lot of loss of resolution.
As for the battery life, you will get four full hours on one charge, and you can also get 3 other charges from the box.
Finally, after we tested the Skullcandy Indy earbuds, we found that they are above average when it comes to ease of use. These earbuds also use two sets of gels for each earbud, and they are IP55 certified, so they are sweat resistant.
We also found that the connection between each of the earphones and your phone is strong throughout use, but unfortunately the battery life was average, and it was so compare it to other headphones.
In terms of design and build quality, we Find it uninspiring as we are use to from the Skullcandy brand.
in conclusion if you want great design and amazing performance you can turn to the Sony WF-1000XM3 which is objectively one of the best pairs of true wireless earphones on the market.
