Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • 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
  • If you are a fitness freak, you will love the sound quality of the Skullcandy Indy Evo. 6mm dynamic driver units provide plenty of low-end bass to keep your energy high in the gym without overwhelming the vocals and instruments
  • The integrated TILE technology makes it easy to find the lost earbuds in your home, office, gym or cafe, open the tile app on your smartphone and let the earbuds play a sound so that you can find them
  • Each bud receives its own Bluetooth signal and works independently, so each bud can be used alone in solo mode to listen to music or answer phone calls
  • Most users will appreciate their lightweight plastic design and included silicone tips in three different sizes, as well as stability hooks that offer a secure and comfortable fit even during long listening sessions
  • Ambient mode is a small but convenient feature when you need to keep your ear open to outside announcements without having to remove your earbuds, such as airport announcements or traffic noise while crossing busy city streets
  • 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
  • Thanks to the IP55 design for dust and splash resistance, they are perfect for outdoor activities; just wash them after a sweaty workout
  • Brilliant sound insulation due to the included silicone tips of three different sizes, which create the perfect seal to block most external sounds
  • They deliver an above-average battery life of 6 hours on a single charge and an impressive additional 24 hours of juice with the wireless charging case; they also have a quick charge feature that offers up to 2 hours of music playback with a charge of just 10 minutes

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • 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
  • Skullcandy Indy Evo Earbuds are made entirely of hard plastic, which helps maintain weight for comfortable wear, but lacks a premium touch and feel
