Skullcandy Hesh Evo Review

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

The Skullcandy Hesh Evo is a cool-looking pair of over-ear wireless headphones. For $99.99, you get a supremely comfortable fit and a bass-forward experience, but not much else. Likewise, there’s no app, no active noise cancellation, no exercise-focused features. These are just wireless headphones, plain and simple. That’s OK with us.  On the contrary, the audio becomes the sole focus, and the audio here is decent, but never wonderful. There’s actually less bass depth than you might expect from Skullcandy, as well as less crispness and definition in the high-mids than there could be. By no means do these headphones sound bad, but there’s nothing here that stands out in a field with better options, either in the features department or the audio performance realm.

What Is the design of the Skullcandy Hesh Evo?

Skullcandy Hesh Evo

Starting with the design, the Hesh Evo headphones have an circumaural (over-ear) design and enough light weight to give comfort for long time. The earpads and underside of the headband are thoroughly cushioned with memory foam lined with a leather-like material. The fit is exceptionally comfortable and secure, even over long listening sessions.

The egg shape earcups are securely fold flat and collapsible for better portability. Regardless, the company claim that the headphone design to give a tight seal between your ear and earcups. As a result, it provides a fair amount of passive isolation. Further, the memory foam small bar at the top of the headband is so much comfortable and secure.

In addition, the headphone lacks the IP ratings for water and sweat resistance. Thereupon, you can not use the headphone while swimming or running or during raining outside. Over all, the headphone offers a fabulous colour combination with a better design and low cost than most of other wireless headphones. Comparatively, these headphone has fairly similar shape and size as the Cleer ALPHA ANC, accept the symbol providing at the top of the earcups by cleer Alpha headphone.

How to use the onboard controls?

Along the right earcup’s side panel, there’s a control strip with a central multifunction button that handles playback, call management, and voice assistants, and plus/minus buttons for volume and track navigation. The one disadvantage is that they combining volume and track navigation on the same button, as it’s too easy to accidentally skip a track when you mean to adjust the volume. The multifunction button is also the power button (hold it for two seconds to power down), and there’s a dedicated Bluetooth pairing button on the panel, as well. 

What is Tile Finding Technology?

How good is the audio quality of the Skullcandy Hesh Evo?

Looking for sound quality, the Skullcandy Hesh Evo truly wireless headphone come with a 40mm silk-diaphragm drivers with improve sound quality and thumpy bass. This high-resolution audio means you’ll always enjoy the best sound – whether you’re listening in wireless or wired mode. Out of the box, there is a strong boost at low-end frequencies below 150Hz which the bass-head will appreciate.

Furthermore, the drivers deliver vibrant audio performance and powerful bass. The in-line frequency response provides a high bass with crystal clear sound experience.In addition, after your demand and deserve, a great soundstage, low distortion and high dynamic range. It’s what makes music come alive. further, the Life Q35 has provide unique High-Performance audio mode on board.

On tracks with intense sub-bass content, like The Knife’s “Silent Shout,” the headphones deliver powerful low-frequency response. At top, unwise listening levels, they bring serious thump without distorting. And at more moderate volume levels, the lows are still quite present on this bass-heavy track.

Bill Callahan’s “Drover,” a track with far less deep bass in the mix, gives us a better sense of the Hesh Evo’s general sound signature. The drums on this track can get an overly thunderous feel to them through bass-forward headphones, but here the drums sound full and big, without seeming overly boosted. Callahan’s baritone vocals get some added richness in the low-mids. But it’s paired with a relatively crisp high-mid delivery that keeps things defined. Instead, we have a sculpted sound signature, with rich lows and bright highs. Generally speaking, it provides solid balance. But this isn’t a sound signature for purists looking for an accurate listen, nor is it for bass lovers.

Conclusion

When we come across a pair of headphones like the Skullcandy Hesh Evo. It feels like a trip down memory lane—these are just wireless headphones, period. That’s refreshing on one hand, but it also means that they need to sound quite good in order to compete with similarly priced options that might offer a little more in the way of features. The headphones are comfortable, and the drivers deliver good—not great—audio. Around the $100 mark, we’re bigger fans of the Sennheiser HD 450BT, or for less, the Onanoff FOKUS. All three pairs feature adjustable EQ and better audio performance, showing that sometimes more is more.
