MOST ‘WTF’ HEADPHONE EVER Skullcandy Crusher Evo Review, Unboxing – Video published on YouTube by TechReflex: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUH9KPp1smg

Today we’re going to check out VERY unique
headphone that has delivered one of the most

WTF moments of my headphone experiences, it
is the Skullcandy Crusher Evo, and it is my

first Crusher headphone, so I didn’t know
about the special feature of this lineup.

That special feature is what Skullcandy calls
‘Sensory bass’, and what that means is

that these headphones have additional vibration
motors inside them that vibrate to deliver

a very sensory experience so you can literally
feel the bass on your head.

Not just your ears, but your complete head.

So the first time I tried these I had a really
mind blasting experience, but these headphones

cost around 200 US Dollars, or 14,000 Rs.
in India, so you are paying a serious amount

for them, and while they are really great
for the kind of buyers that Skullcandy is

targeting, these are definitely not for everyone.

Hey guys, I am Siddharth, and there’s just
a lot to talk about these headphones, because

they are one of the most interesting pair
of headphones that I have used.

We have a fairly interesting unboxing experience
with this headphone, inside it you get the

instructions to operate it on the box, then
some papers for support and warranty, we get

a 3.5mm audio cable along with a USB type
C cable to charge them, and finally we get

to the headphones that come in this very interesting
carrying bag that you have to buckle up to

store them, and it also has pockets inside
to carry your cables.

The design of the Crusher Evo is really great.

They look very modern, but without overdoing
it, and they just have a lot of interesting

stuff going on with them like the fabric covering
on top of the headband that looks very unique

with their grey black theme.

The headband cushion is made of silicone with
this unusual 2 point design, and they have

a matte coating on their body with which I
also liked.

They’re also available in a grey color but
I think black version looks better.

On the right earcup, you have 3 buttons which
will let you control the playback of your

music, switch to different tracks, adjust
the volume, and call Google assistant with

a double press.

On the left side, you have a 3.5mm port for
wired playback, a USB C port for charging,

the power button has a nice orange accent
to it, and then you have this very special

slider that lets you control the strength
of the Sensory bass, or the vibration motors

on these headphones.

The headband size can be adjusted in steps,
and this mechanism is made of metal so it

feels premium.

The earcups offer a 180 degree swivel, which
is really nice, and the earpads on these are

also really great as they have memory foam
inside, and they can also be removed if you

need to replace them.

One feature I really appreciated on these
is that the sensory bass also works when you

play this in wired mode.

You have to turn them on after you connect
them with wire for this, so this is going

to consume battery, but they also work while
being powered off in wired mode, but then

the sensory bass won’t work.

The comfort on the Crusher Evo is decent.

My ears are bigger on the bigger side, and
for me the earpads are just on the edge of

being too small, but I still find them to
be comfortable.

They have memory foam inside, which keeps
them comfortable, and even though their headband

creates a pressure point on the center of
your head, they are light in weight so you

can wear them for some time.

When you’re playing music on them, the vibration
of the earcups actually increases the comfort

as the whole headphone vibrates, which I think
also lets some air in.

You also get a head massage while listening
to bass heavy music on these, and it actually

feels kind of relaxing after some time.

For wireless connectivity, they have Bluetooth
5.0, and they have Google Fast Pairing feature

so they do connect almost instantly after
powering on.

They don’t seem to have AptX or LDAC support,
but they do support AAC, and that should be

good enough for the quality of drivers we
have on these.

This is a microphone test for these headphone
so you can hear what they sound like when

you’re on a call.

There doesn’t seem to be any kind of noise
cancellation going on with the microphone

but it still sounds good.

Also make sure that you’re subscribed to
the channel with bell icon, so you don’t

miss out on cool stuff I have coming up.

The battery life on these headphones is also
really exceptional, Skullcandy claims that

they deliver 40 hours of playback time, which
is really long, and I also played music on

this for 22 hours and the battery life shown
on my phone was still at 80%, so I really

think they will deliver the claimed 40 hours
of runtime.

They also support fast charging if all that
is not impressive enough for you.

Finally coming to their sound quality, they
just work in a completely different way than

any other headphone that I have reviewed,
so it is kind of complicated to explain how

they sound.

The target audience for these headphones are
the people who want to have free minded fun

with their music, and I can completely see
the appeal for these headphones, as they do

deliver on that promise very well.

It is really fun to make other people try
these headphones and see their jaws drop as

they get confused about why they’re feeling
what they’re feeling while wearing this

headphone, and it really is one of the coolest
party tricks that you can have on an audio

device.

There is a certain use case for these headphones
that I won’t go into the details of, but

let’s just say that the Snoop Dogg people
will be willing to pay any price for these

headphones.

So while they are an excellent choice for
people who want to feel their music in this

sensory way, I also have to cover how they
sound as a normal headphone, and it is going

to be a long explanation.

The vibration motors on these headphones are
a part of their sound delivery, so this system

works along with their regular sound drivers
to deliver all the frequencies, so the extreme

low frequencies in bass are delivered by the
vibration motors, and I think over 100 Hz,

the sound is handled completely by the drivers.

The slider on these headphones also allows
you to control how strong the vibration motors

are, so you can either go into the full head
massage mode, or you can completely turn it

off and only hear the sound from their drivers.

But I think most people will have the slider
set to somewhere in the middle, because the

sound drivers are designed to work with the
motors, so if you completely turn it off,

they sound bright and thin.

So with their slider set to around 40%, they
have a V shaped sound signature, meaning that

the bass and treble is boosted.

This is something I was expecting because
these are tuned to make modern music sound

fun.

For the tech that they have tried to achieve
here, it works pretty well.

The motors integrate with the sound drivers
very well, and I think this is why most people

who try these headphones for the first time
may not even realize that they have additional

vibration motors inside.

So the bass experience is not only of sound,
but also of the physical vibration that Skullcandy

calls ‘Sensory bass’.

This really gives you a totally different
experience when you listen to EDM or other

electronic music, as you feel the earcups
vibrating along with the ‘kick’ that you

have in electronic tracks, and these are really
designed to listen to bass centric music,

so you do feel your music in a very literal
sense on your head.

But from a purely sonic perspective, the result
of this technology is that the bass can sound

quite loose.

It can completely overpower the mid frequencies,
but the slider allows you to lower it very

easily, so you can balance it according to
the track that you’re listening to.

But still if you’re looking for the best
sonic experience in this price range for bass,

these headphones may not be the best, because
they are meant to be used for fun and headbanging

to EDM instead of critical listening where
you try to examine how well defined the bass

is.

People compare their bass to that of a subwoofer,
and their vibration motors do deliver a surprisingly

effective sense of deep bass, but this bass
is just meant for enjoyment and feeling it

through the vibrations of the headphone, as
it will sound very loose to someone who wants

to have a serious listening experience with
their music.

If you completely turn the sensory bass off,
they actually still sound nice, their drivers

are decent, but they again become bass light
and bright without the sensory bass, so turning

it off is only a good idea for when you are
listening to something that you don’t want

the vibrations with.

Another thing to note here is that they work
fine if you wear glasses, but without glasses

you get a better experience as they seal your
ears better, and the vibrations don’t travel

in the best way through your glasses.

Coming to their mids, they sound recessed
because of their V shaped sound signature.

The vocals on these sound decent, but these
are not exactly the headphones that you will

buy to listen to vocal centric music.

The upper mids of these headphones have an
emphasis, so the vocals don’t have the fullness

to them that you may find even with other
cheaper headphones like the Sennheiser HD

4.40BT, but again, these are targeted for
a very different use case, and the Sennheiser’s

were just too uncomfortable for me to recommend.

Now skullcandy also has an app available for
these, and before I used it, they sounded

a little too bright for my taste, but the
app allows you to add a personalized equalizer

preset by asking you whether you are able
to hear different frequencies or not.

I really thought that this was a gimmick,
but the preset that this app set on these

headphones actually made them sound significantly
more balanced, and it also made the bass from

vibration motors integrate better into their
sound, so I’d highly recommend using the

app and using this feature if you buy these
headphones.

So after this optimization, the treble sounds
pretty good to me, even if it still retains

some emphasis in it.

I think this emphasis is kind of required
with these so that the treble can keep up

with the power and vibration of the bass,
but it still sounds good.

They do sound detailed, and for what they
are aiming to do with these headphones, I

think that the treble is executed very well.

The soundstage on these headphones is also
nice, and they don’t sound congested.

For gaming they should also work very well,
as you will feel the bass on your head, and

their V shaped sound signature will let you
hear the details.

They also have something called Tile support,
which will help you in finding these headphones

in case you lose them.

So in conclusion, the Skullcandy Crusher Evo
is a product that I think is executed very

well.

It is a specialty product that has been designed
for a specific crowd, and for those people,

it really provides an experience that no other
headphone I’ve had delivers.

They are designed very well, they’re comfortable,
the battery life is outstanding.

The integration of sensory bass is also really
impressive, but it is definitely not a conventional

headphone, and if you’re not looking for
this kind of an experience for your music,

then I would not suggest that you go for this.

These are also mostly suited for modern music,
so genres like EDM and pop which have bass

drums and kicks, and they won’t be the best
for stuff like classical or vocal centric

music.

But for people seeking a really fun experience,
this is something I can easily recommend,

as this product is really in its own category,
so even for someone who already has good headphones,

this can be a really fun addition.

So I’ll have links to buy these headphones
in the video description, let me know what

you think about these Crushers in the comments
section below, and if you would buy them.

Give this video a thumbs up if you liked it,
or a thumbs down if you disliked it.

    Welcome to the Crusher Brotherhood. I always like when people are describing their first time listening to these. Reminds me of the first time when I heard mine and it completely blew me away. These headphones are fun. I have the earlier iteration Crusher Wireless. I am planning to upgrade next month.

  2. qwerty me says:

    Idk why not a single Indian is raising a voice against Skullcandy’s pricing…in foreign market they are selling it at the price in which it is available to us after getting 50 percent “off” in India

  3. kitark06 says:

    How would you compare this against the Sony xb900n as they both fall in the same price range.!

  4. Jungle King says:

    How strong is the build quality? Every skullcandy i bought never lasted very long. I also heard that the crusher wireless used to break at the hinges. So is this any better build wise?

  5. sarthak dalai says:

    I used to be a subscriber when u had 4-5k subs and watch your videos time to time . Its nice to see 50k . keep growing coz ur videos are great!!!!

    I’m worried about getting a pair because I’ve seen a few comments saying the bass ain’t that good and saying the haptic feedback ain’t accurate.
