Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • Skullcandy is known for bass-heavy sound and the same approach they used here. Skullcandy Indy Fuel delivers good sound quality with deep, consistent and powerful bass to keep your energy high during workouts
  • Built-in 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 to help you find them
  • The biggest improvement over the last generation model is that each bud now receives its own Bluetooth signal, so it can be used alone for music or calls in mono mode
  • Most users will appreciate their lightweight plastic design and the included silicone tips in three different sizes, as well as stability hooks that offer a secure and comfortable fit even during long listening sessions
  • In ambient mode, you can keep an ear open for outside announcements or street noise without removing the earphones and it can be switched on or off from the on-board touch panel
  • With Bluetooth 5.0, they can be paired with two devices at the same time, so you can answer the call from your smartphone while watching a movie on your laptop
  • An improvement over last year's Skullcandy model is the addition of EQ presets - Music mode, Podcast mode, and Movie mode, which can help you choose the audio output that suits you
  • 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. The case is really easy to charge by placing it on top of the Qi compatible charging pad or back of Samsung S20 and Note series smartphones
  • On-board microphone and touch controls let you answer phone calls, skip tracks, adjust volume levels, play/pause music, switch EQ modes, Bluetooth pairing, power on/off, ambient mode on/off and connect with Google Assistant or Siri
  • The sweat and water resistant design of these IP55 certified headphones makes them the perfect companion when you are running outdoors or working out in the gym
  • Noise isolating design and silicone tips that fit perfectly to most users help provide excellent sound insulation by blocking most of the external noise
  • 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

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 Fuel True wireless are made entirely of a hard plastic that helps save weight for comfortable wear, but lacks the premium touch and feel

Highlights

  • Integrated tile technology makes it easy to track down either earbud if you ever misplace them
  • Indy Fuel's case can be charged wirelessly by simply dropping it onto any wireless charging pad
  • Truly wireless design gives you the freedom to listen to your favorite songs without wires
  • Each earpiece can be used on its own to keep the other ear free to hear what's around you
  • The in-ear design fits securely and conducts music into the ears for full, uninterrupted sound
  • On-board controls to answer calls, skip tracks, adjust volume, activate phone’s voice assistant, and more
  • Indy Fuel earphones have a durable build quality with resistance to water, sweat and dust
  • Rechargeable battery offers up to 30 hours of combined (earphones + case) battery life
  • Bluetooth 5.0 enables simple wireless pairing with two Bluetooth-enabled devices at the same time
