Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • The Skullcandy Push Ultra is a pair of sporty and stylish earbuds, look durable (albeit entirely made of plastic) and come in bold, vibrant and fun colors like electric yellow and bleached blue along with regular black. Don't forget that the wireless charging case is also available with the same matching color
  • Their over-the-ear moldable hooks, which are similar to Powerbeats pro, can be easily molded according to the shape of your ear for a comfortable and secure fit during outdoor activities or gym workouts
  • Like all other new Skullcandy models, these Skullcandy Push Ultra earbuds also have a built-in TILE technology that is quite useful for tracking one or both missing buds from the Skullcandy app
  • Their IP67 dust and waterproof construction is a good advantage that can withstand extreme weather conditions or sweat better than normal headphones. If necessary, they can be easily washed after workouts
  • If you're a frequent runner or love cycling on city roads, then you'll appreciate its design that won't penetrate deep into the ear canal to block out external sounds and keep you aware of your surroundings
  • 12.5mm drivers offer respectable sound quality (largely dependent on the fit achieved) with decent low-end bass, well tuned midrange but little weak treble. There are also 3 prebuilt EQ modes (music, movies, and podcasts) that you can select based on the type of music you're listening to
  • Push Ultra True Wireless Earbuds have built-in physical controls and microphone on each bud that allow you to answer phone calls, control music playback, adjust volume, skip tracks, change EQ modes and connect to the phone's virtual assistant
  • Thanks to Bluetooth 5.0 technology, both buds receive their own Bluetooth signal, so each bud can be used independently for music or calls in Solo mode and keep the other ear free for external announcements or conversations
  • According to the company, the Skullcandy Push Ultra true can offer 6 hours of music playback on a single charge and the charging case extends it to a total of 40 hours, and the fast charging function offers more than 2 hours of juice with just 10 minutes of charging
  • Skullcandy Push Ultra are inexpensive truly wireless earbuds (you can buy one for 99 US dollars) that won't break your bank account. Their unique design with over-ear hooks is perfect for outdoor activities and running

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • The main drawback of the over-ear hook design is the lack of a suitable in-ear seal that greatly affects sound quality. If you can't get the tight seal, then they sound thinner than they should
  • They are not the loudest headphones in their category due to their ‘stay aware’ design that does not filter out the external sounds. Even if you increase the volume to the highest level, you always want more
  • This over-the-ear hook design is not for everyone, especially for users with small ears. They can also be uncomfortable for others, as the hooks hold the headphones in place and, in doing so, exert some pressure on your ears
  • Onboard physical controls lack tactile feedback. They are still better than touch controls, but they are not very intuitive to use and need a little extra pressure to work, which pushes the buds further into the ears, which can be frustrating for some users
  • Skullcandy Push Ultra True Wireless Headphones case is quite large and bulky; almost twice the size of the Apple Airpods charging case. This is due to the massive battery and the size of the earbuds, which is quite larger than the normal truly wireless earbuds
  • Regardless of the distance to the sound source, sometimes one or both buds lose their connection and need to be re-paired with the device. This is a long and tedious process
  • The companion app has a fairly basic functionality, such as registering the earbuds and accessing the user guides, and that's it. There is no battery level indicator for headphones or case, and you can't change EQ mode for a more personalized listening experience
  • The quality of calls is below average, it feels thinner, details are missing, and the person you're calling can hardly hear your voice in a moderately noisy environment
  • Although Skullcandy Push Ultra True Wireless in ear earbud have Bluetooth 5.0, there is no multi-device connectivity, which is quite common today. This means that only one device can be connected at a time
  • You may notice a delay when watching 4K videos due to lack of support for higher quality audio codecs, such as aptX, aptX HD, and aptX LL. These headphones only support SBC and AAC codec
  • Skullcandy Push Ultra in ear true wireless sport headphones do not have noise-canceling functionality to block external noise, especially if you want to use them during the trip. You may need an extra pair with better sound isolation to filter out ambient noise and enjoy your favorite playlist
