Skullcandy Push review: Stylish and light

Last updated:  

Quick verdict: Skullcandy's take on true wireless headphones offer reasonable performance, but with light sound and lighter battery life, we wanted more out of the Push headphones.

  • Light to carry around
  • Touch buttons are easy to tap
  • Inner ear hooks keep them very secure in your ears
  • Sound quality is only average
  • Large battery case but low battery life
  • Poor microphone quality

Skullcandy's reputation in the headphone space is built upon some truly eye-catching designs and a focus on affordability. For its first truly wireless headphones, the Skullcandy Push, there's certainly plenty of evidence of different design that may appeal, but the relatively light sound makes them a less compelling prospect.


Design

  • Lots of colour variety
  • Light in the ear but nicely secured
  • Charging case is large and light

Performance

  • Audio quality is fair but not great
  • Microphones are awful for call quality
  • Light buttons are too easy to push

Battery

  • Six hours of charge is decent
  • Large carry case only gives you one more charge

Verdict

  • Reasonable but not great
Skullcandy Push

There are a lot of choices in the wireless bud space right now, with many major brands jostling for your buying dollar. The Skullcandy Push headphones are nicely colourful which may appeal, and they're not as pricey as the upper tier buds from the likes of Apple, Sony or Samsung.

However, they're also not as good. The overall audio experience is fair but not substantially better than you'd get out of a much cheaper set of wired headphones, or larger Bluetooth cans either. The microphone pick-up for calls is really very bad, and the battery case doesn't add as much charge as its large dimensions would suggest.


Pricing and availability

The Skullcandy Push headphones sell in Australia for $229.95 outright.
