Exclusive Features Review of Skullcandy Indy True Wireless Headphones
Skullcandy Indy Design
The earbuds themselves have a customary in-channel fit, with the particular Skullcandy logo on the external sides. These external pieces of the earbuds are contact delicate, and can be utilized to control volume and playback — a solitary tap on either side changes the volume, a double tap on the right plays or delays music, and a long-press on either side jumps to the following or past track.
The ear tips have two parts. One fits into your ear and another one has a sleeve that helps you to push these buds into your ear. This is well suited for your daily workups and it was IP55 certified for sweat proof.
While the drop in manufacture quality is just sort of present with the case, it is upfront with the earbuds. They’re made altogether of bad quality plastic and the touch-sensitive controls along the case system of the earbuds are all in or all out when you’re attempting to control playback.
SkullCandy Indy Sound Quality
Speaking about the sound quality it neither sounds good nor sounds bad. According to the Skullcandy true wireless reviews, it sounds somewhat good. The organization appears to have restrained the low end which is for the most part over-stressed to the detriment of lucidity. The mids and highs share some additional accentuation in those notes bringing about entirely clear vocals in iTunes and podcasts.
Skullcandy Indy Noise Cancelling
Unfortunately, these Skullcandy Indy earbuds don’t have this Noise cancelling feature. This in-ear fit will provide you good passive isolation. Hence it won’t work for blocking sounds like annoying bus noises. But they are pretty good at masking sounds like A/C units at the treble range. You can also raise the volume because they scarcely release the sound to the surroundings.
Skullcandy Indy Microphone
Similar to other headphones, the Skullcandy Indy has a mediocre integrated microphone. In a noiseless quiet environment, the speech which is recorded and transmitted with their mic sounds somewhat muffled.
You’ll actually be genuinely suppressed, yet the individual on the other line shouldn’t have too hard a period getting you. In noisier circumstances, notwithstanding, the Indy’s mic battles significantly to isolate discourse from encompassing clamor. This implies your voice will be more enthusiastic to comprehend if you accept a call while strolling down a bustling road.
SkullCandy Indy Battery life
Skullcandy guarantees the charging case to around 16 hours. So you can energize them back completely about multiple times before you have to charge the case itself.
The charging case sports a micro-USB port but most of the latest mobiles use a USB-C or Lightning. So there would be a need to carry another wire in order to charge your case.
SkullCandy Indy Pairing
The Skullcandy Indy are impressive with the Bluetooth 5.0, which is making them future-proof for a product in this price range. If your next few devices are Bluetooth 5 compatible then you can be able to enjoy a longer range and more clear data transfer.
You can walk a few steps back with these earbuds, they still deliver good connectivity. Watching YouTube videos was amazing because there is no major lag. But the re-pairing setup is a mess. As soon as you open the case the earbuds can be easily connected through the Bluetooth settings of your phone. Re-pairing to a second device or resetting includes a step by step instructions listed on their website.
SkullCandy Indy Charging Case
The charging case of the Skullcandy Indy is, similar to the headphones, made of plastic. Nonetheless, it is a lot bigger than the ones that accompany most different arrangements of genuinely remote headphones, and will hence be somewhat hard to slip into your pocket or keep in a restricted space.
The headphones fit properly to the case with a magnet, however, this likewise makes them somewhat tricky to remove. Utilizing the ear gels really makes this somewhat simpler.
The case of the Indy is a major improvement over that of the Skullcandy Push; it holds the headphones set up safely, offers three extra charges for the two headphones, and has a helpful three-light pointer framework. The lights initiate on opening the case, indicating to you its battery level. The main downside with the charging case is that it has a Miniature USB port for charging, situated at the base.

Buying SkullCandy Indy is a good choice?
Though it has good connectivity and better battery life, it comes only under the above-average ratings. Here we are not insisting that it is not worth buying.
In general, the Skullcandy Indy is only a decent pair of genuine remote earbuds that I figure anybody would be satisfied with, however, they’re not the stunning pair of ‘buds that everybody should have.
They’re an extraordinary option in contrast to Airpods, regardless of whether they’re not a direct competitor.
In case you decided to buy the Skullcandy Indy earbuds it depends on the color you choose.
Are there any other SkullCandy Indy Alternatives?
After finding an alternative to AirPods many options arrived after this Skullcandy Indy. The best and obvious one is AirPods Pro which comes with an amazing noise cancelling feature and better fitting ear tips. Sure it widely differs from the price of each other but we feel mentioning is worth it if you are ready to spare some extra money.
Want to spend within the sub-$100 range? Then check out the Creative Outlier Gold, which we liked about the original Outlier Air which makes the battery life better than usual. This is the best one having both AAC and aptX. It also has IPX5 water resistance so you can easily handle it while doing your workouts.

The SkullCandy Indy true wireless may appear to be a promising option in contrast to the Apple AirPods from the start, yet doesn’t exactly satisfy the imprint practically speaking. The sound has some great characteristics, however isn’t exactly as agreeable and satisfying as we’d have preferred. The organization’s second contribution in the genuinely remote fragment after the Skullcandy Push is an improvement from multiple points of view, however this Skullcandy Indy doesn’t exactly meet what’s necessary to acquire a simple proposal.
