I’m not sure how many of you remember the classic Skullcandy headphones with tattoo designs and fun colors. I remember back in middle school and high school they were all I wanted and more and then sometime around college I decided I was too cool for them (obviously mistaken). I’m here to eat my own words since it seems that in the years I forgot about Skullcandy they just came back better than ever.
With the new Skullcandy Push, they’re not just any pair of wireless earbuds, but they hold true to the Skullcandy style, with 6 fun colors to choose from they made me nostalgic for my old SkullCandy in-ear earbuds.
What’s in the box?
- Pair of earbuds

Pushing Them To Their Limits
I’ll admit that I was skeptical when I put the earbuds on at first. They felt a bit clunky and heavy, however, when I put them on they didn’t feel as weighty as I expected. They also have this little tip that you can slip into the corner of your ear for a more secure fit, but it didn’t work for me. It did work for my dad, so I think it depends on your ear? It in no way hindered the comfort of the earbuds and they were still secure nonetheless.
The Skullcandy Push also come in this great case that doubles as their charger. The best part, in my opinion, is the fact that there is an indicator light that tells you how much charge is left for your case. When I used my AirPods, I don’t have an indication other than the red or green light. That being said, there is something to be said for the sleek design of Apple. I found it hard to toss the earbuds into my pocket because of the large shape, however, that is a very standard size for most bluetooth earbuds. Another benefit is, since I use an android, I can use the same charger to charge the case, that I use for my phone, it’s convenient not to have to carry 2 chargers at once.
I tested these earbuds in various places such as cafes, my office, and walking around the city/town. I found that despite these earbuds not being noise canceling, it effectively blocked out most of the noise around me without having the volume too high. I also loved the buttons on the earbuds that allowed me to effortlessly change the volume or pick up phone calls, something I struggled with utilizing my AirPods. I also would have to say that the sound quality was similar, if not the same as my AirPods. With SkullCandy you get exactly what you pay for.
I personally found that with the Skullcandy Push True Wireless Earbuds, I was able to listen to my music without sacrificing the quality of the sound. While the earbuds felt bulky at first, as soon as I put them on, I barely even realized they were on. I did feel the case was a bit bulky but no bulkier than the other cases I’ve seen for galaxy buds, so this might just be nitpicky on my end. All in all, I definitely think these were a solid choice in earbuds without the extra expensive price tag that comes with the bigger names.
