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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
