The Skullcandy Push are lightweight, comfortable truly wireless in-ear headphones. They feature Skullcandy’s signature bass-heavy sound and playful, fashionable design. The Push have a nice, stable fit and are great earbuds for working out or wearing on a run. They’re not as well-built as other similarly priced truly wireless earbuds and are lacking in connectivity options, but they have a great wireless range and isolate a decent amount of sound considering they don’t have active noise-canceling (ANC). Overall, they’re decent truly wireless earbuds for most uses that don’t require latency like gaming or watching TV.
Skelecandy is known for its bright colors and designs and that is no different from Push. The headphones come with Gray Day, Bold Tangerine, and Psychotropical Teal, as our review unit you can see in this review. (Paint looks good in the sun in a sbtle light.)
While the paint looks great, the headphones and case feel cheap and plastic. The cover is also not loaded in the spring so you will need to make them manually accessible.
Speaking of which, we are surprised by the size of the charging cases, which are much larger than the competition but offer a single charge charge – meaning the ears themselves last six hours, and the other six from the charging case offer headphones for 12 hours of life.
The news here, however, is that we are pleased to see that USB-C charging is available in this case, allowing faster charging and compatibility with modern smartphone cables. We were very happy with the blue LED battery lights on the charging case as it is very bright as it makes them interrupt at night when you are trying to sleep, but it is not a big deal.
The ears themselves are quite large when viewed from the side but are actually smaller, sitting close to the ear.
They also come with FinFit wings, which help keep the headbands strong during exercise. While Skelecandy claims that headphones are “waterproof,” the company does not list IP rating … which does not promote self-confidence.
Users control the Skullcandy Push by using a button that appears on each earbud. We prefer body controls to touch and beautiful Savecands. The buttons provide a nice tactile feel and you can control everything from your music playback, volume, and your phone’s voice assistant to headphones.
Skullcandy stands out in the crowded market by offering a bold design and bass you can feel. These heads have a very warm warm sound with bass that transcends everything else – vocals and highs buried under a heavy mountain, with bass blooms.
While the extra bass is fun to fight the noise that has arisen, Push’s bass is so full that we got our heads in and listened to them for over an hour at a time. (If you like controlled bass, consider Sol Republic Amps Air 2.0 which is also more banded but more controlled and not completely exhausted.)
Honestly, Savecandy paired our iPhone XS all the time but experienced occasional noise in the left ear. (According to the title, the right earbud is a slave.) It was hard to repeat but it was still happening both as they walked around town and sitting at home.
Depending on the battery life, the Skelecandy battery life is a compact bag. Although it is impressive that the ears themselves last for 6 hours, the number we dialed during the test, the case only gives 6 hours. Some particles like Amps Air 2.0 offer an exciting 45 hours of integrated battery life and its charge is much larger than Push’s.
Skulcandy got a few things right with Push, its first true wireless headphone. Design, fit, comfort and physical controls are the highlights.
But unfortunately we cannot recommend them due to their average battery life, occasional connection issues and the boss triggering headaches.
For the same price, we recommend bass-lovers to go with Soul Republic Amp Air 2.0 because it delivers tough bass, digs deeper and gives you a ridiculous 45 hours of listening time. If you have a little more left, step up to the RHA TrueConnect or slightly dated Zabra Elite 65T, which offers stellar structure and audio quality for the price, which is still one of the best real wireless headphones you can buy.
