For less than $100, they are good value for money headphones due to an integrated tile tracker, solid battery life and a wireless charging case

Skullcandy Indy Evo has similar sound output, design and build quality as of Skullcandy Indy Fuel, the only difference is the lack of a wireless charging case. But on a positive side, they're available in five color options and $30 less than Indy Fuel True wireless earbuds

Bluetooth 5.0 offers a multi-device pairing that allows you to answer calls on your smartphone while listening to music on your laptop at the same time

There are three equalizer presets - Music mode, Podcast mode, and Movie mode, which can be activated from the on-board touch panel to select the audio output to your liking

The on-board microphone and touch controls allow you to answer phone calls, skip tracks, adjust volume, play/pause music, switch EQ modes, Bluetooth pairing, power on/off, Ambient mode on/off and connect with your phone’s virtual assistant

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them


Skullcandy Indy Fuel True wireless earbuds sound great, as long as you get a good fit, it's very important otherwise they sound thinner than they should

They are less suitable for vocal and relaxed music, these headphones are specially designed for heavy bass genres to enjoy pop, jazz and dance music

Connect to the second device or reset the headset is still a long and tiring process, you have to follow many instructions which are really hard to remember

The touch controls are not very precise due to the lack of appropriate feedback, performing an action specifically selecting the EQ modes or activating/deactivating the ambient mode is a hit or miss

Regardless of the distance from the sound source, sometimes one or both headphones drop the connection and need to be re-paired with the device which, of course, is a long process

Their call quality seems a little better than last year's Indy wireless earbuds when you use them in a quiet room, but the on-board microphones still struggle in moderately noisy environments

They have less latency than last year's model, but they're still not perfect for watching high quality videos or games due to a lack of support for higher quality audio codecs like aptX, aptX HD and aptX LL

The companion app has a fairly basic functionality such as the Ambient mode on/off, register the earphones and access the user guides and that's all. There's no battery level indicator for earphones or case, and you can't change EQ mode for a more personalized listening experience

Indy Fuel are currently available in two color options: True Black and Chill Gray. They are professional-looking colors, but the younger generation prefers bold and vibrant colors that match their styles

Skullcandy Indy Evo True Wireless Earbuds sound great, as long as you get a good fit, it is very important otherwise they sound thinner than they should

They are not for vocally oriented or laid back listening; these headphones are designed for bass heavy music like Pop, EDM, Jazz or Metal

Connecting to a second device or resetting the headset is still a long and tedious process; you have to follow many instructions that are really hard to remember

The touch sensitive on-board controls are just average and do not have good acoustic feedback, performing an action specifically selecting the EQ modes or activating/deactivating the ambient mode is a hit or miss

Bluetooth connectivity is still not very reliable; Skullcandy Indy Evo in ear True wireless headphones drop the signal and skip the tracks occasionally as you walk through the busy city streets

The inline microphone offers substandard call quality, in noisy environments it appears thin, noticeably muffled and lacks details when making calls and is only suitable for use in quiet rooms

You may notice a delay when watching 4K videos due to the lack of support for superior audio codec such as aptX, aptX HD, aptX LL, as well as LDAC and AAC

The companion app has pretty basic functionality, such as Ambient mode on/off, registering headphones, accessing user guides, and that’s all. There is no battery level indicator for the headphones or case, and you cannot change the equalizer mode for more personalized listening
