Tech Stars: Skullcandy Grind Headphones
Over-ear headphones are definitely in. Seen on everyone from celebrities to commuters, they’re much more comfortable than in-ear options. Plus they have the added bonus of noise cancellation and reduced sound leakage, meaning no one accidentally overhears you playing that Little Mix track for the fourth time in a row (why are their songs SO catchy?!). We’ve been trying out the very stylish Skullcandy Grind headphones and have been impressed at how they perform.
Sleek, stylish and super-comfortable, we are loving these Skullcandy Grind over-ear headphones. Great for work, at home or for popping on during your commute, they’re also fab value for money at £39.99 – perfect for a Christmas wishlist!
Undoubtedly the winning feature of the Skullcandy Grind headphones is their stylish design. After wearing ours for just a few days, we’d already had several comments on how cool they look. The range comes in 10 fab colour combinations – we’ve been trying out these uber-cool zebra stripe ones. The highlighter-bright pink Skullcandy logo and green wiring are an instant cheery mood-booster. Pop these onto your work desk for listening to music while you concentrate on your tasks – they can’t fail to brighten up your day!
Apart from the design, the thing we love most about the Skullcandy Grind headphones is the clever play/pause feature. This discreet little button is situated on top of the left earphone and uses Tap Tech technology to let you easily pause your music, skip to the next track and even answer phone calls. No more scrabbling around to find your phone, unlock the screen and pause your music – just tap the button on top of your headphones and take your calls like a workplace pro!
Superior sound quality
The noise cancellation functionality on the Skullcandy Grind headphones is impressive, particularly considering their £39.99 price point. We noticed a definite reduction in background noise – pop them on and let the headphones envelope you in the welcoming coccon of your favourite playlist. They have great sound quality considering their reasonable price.
If you’re looking for a decent pair of noise cancelling over-ear headphones, we think these are great value for money. Check our the full range of colours of the Skullcandy Grind headphones on their website.
