Skullcandy Crusher Wireless vs Skullcandy Venue
According to my review, Skullcandy Crusher Wireless and Skullcandy Venue headphones perform very similarly. While the Venue is easier and has a more exciting sound, the Crusher Wireless are better-built headphones and have excellent 36-hour battery life.
The Crusher even has a slider that allows you to control the quantity of bass you get, up to a ridiculous amount. On the opposite hand, the Venue is often paired with 2 devices simultaneously and has an ANC feature to isolate ambient noise.

Skullcandy Crusher Wireless vs Skullcandy Hesh 3
The Skullcandy Hesh 3 has similar performance to the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless headphones in most aspects. The Hesh 3 tends to block a touch more noise passively, although not by much. They also have a greater wireless range, a little better-balanced sound, and a lighter and comfortable design.
On the opposite hand, the Crusher Wireless has a way better build quality than the Hesh 3. They even have longer battery life and an adjustable bass slider that creates them slightly more customizable.

|Weight||0.7 lbs||0.5 lbs|

Skullcandy Crusher wireless over-ear headphones features
The over-ear Skullcandy Crusher Wireless offers an exceptionally comfortable fit, with memory foam earpads and a well-cushioned headband. The buttons along the rock bottom of the headphones are definitely made from cheap plastic.
From a distance, they appear perfectly fine if rather chunky to us. But when you’re holding them and inspecting them up close, they feel and appear slightly cheap. This is more to try to do with materials than build-quality.
As far as build cares, these headphones feel sturdy but inflexible. There are three buttons on the side panel of the proper earcup. A central multifunction power button also handles playback, Bluetooth pairing, and call management. The plus and minus buttons that handle both volume and track navigation.
On the left earcup, Skullcandy headphones provide both a micro USB charging cable and a flat, linguini-Esque 3.5mm audio cable for wired, passive listening. The cable, which features a red-and-blue connection on the earcup end of the cable.
The adjustable bass slider is additionally located on the left earcup’s side panel and is extremely easy to work. The headphones ship with the 2 aforementioned cables, also as a black drawstring tote with faux-fur lining and a mesh pocket to carry the cables.
As per my review, the Skullcandy Crusher ANC Wireless is a touch too tight on the top, which can get a touch uncomfortable after a short time. The ear cups are decently well padded, and although they’re heavier than the Hesh 3, they’re still fairly lightweight headphones that will not cause any pain or soreness on the highest of your head even after hours of listening.
Unfortunately, the headband may be a bit too tight, and therefore the ear cups are fairly small. They fit decently well around most ears but won’t be the foremost spacious ear cups.
Skullcandy Crusher claims a battery life of roughly 40 hours of constant playback, which might be fairly impressive all on its own. To be fair though, this was with the bass slider turned all the way down, so if you think that you’re getting to be using pumping bass, often you ought to expect a touch less.
The most important downside here is that so as to charge them you’re getting to need to use an older micro-USB cable rather than the newer USB-C.
On the brilliant side, ten minutes on the charger will offer you roughly three hours of constant playback, so if you forget to charge them overnight, it won’t take too long on the charger to urge an honest amount of battery life back.
Pairing to the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless might not be as seamless as some Beats headphones with their fancy new H1 chip, but it still isn’t hard in the least. If you’re pairing to a tool for the primary time simply turning the headphones on by pressing the circular multifunction button will enter pairing mode.
You’ll know you’re in pairing mode when the small LED light begins flashing between blue and red. From there just attend the Bluetooth settings on your source device and choose the headphones.
The Skullcandy has Bluetooth and a solid connection in everyday use, though there’s some notable skipping once you’re teetering around the 30 foot limit of the Bluetooth range which is to be expected. If you favor a wired connection, there’s also a 3.5mm input on the rock bottom of the left earcup.
Playback controls are all fairly simple also, with three buttons on the proper ear cup letting you pause/play music, adjust volume, skip between tracks, and access your phone’s personal assistant.

As per my review, the sound quality of the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless isn’t what I usually prefer; I didn’t find it regrettable here. They still have many low-end emphases which makes these great for bass-heads, especially considering that you simply can adjust the bass even more with the slider.
If you’re trying to find Beats-level bass then some, crank that slider all the high. On the opposite hand, mids suffer from the overbearing bass notes in most cases.
You can barely hear the chords because of the lack of clarity, and therefore, the overemphasized bass seemingly puts them far within the background.
They never became harsh, but the soft hi-hats through the chorus of “You’ve Got Me Running in a circle” by Sonny Cleveland don’t really sound the way they should compare to everything else happening.
This is often likely thanks to the very fact that the majority of headphones with a consumer-friendly sound tend to spice up frequencies within the highs to compete with the ranges of emphasis elsewhere, but the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless doesn’t quite do this here.

Despite not being the simplest sounding headphones at this price point, I used to be really impressed by the general package that the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless offers. They’re a solid alternative to anyone who wants a consumer-friendly sound without paying Beats prices. They’re not the foremost expensive-looking headphones, but they feel sturdy enough for everyday use. We just wish the plastic wasn’t the maximum amount of a fingerprint magnet because it is.
As per my review, the Skullcandy Crusher Wireless headphones are comfortable, sound good, and have exceptional battery life. The addition of the haptic bass feedback adds enjoyable punch to low-frequency sound, though Skullcandy has been overzealous with the range and will have created something with a touch more nuance.
