Skullcandy Grind Review and Specs

If you are looking for headphones of a comfortable on ear wearing style, take a look at my Skullcandy Grind review. I am going to test Skullcandy Grind specs and features in action having a chance to use them on my own. First of all, I find it comfortable to use them with a wire and wireless. Closed back design is more usable for casual listening.

Features

The Skullcandy Grind specs state the frequency response field 20Hz-20KHz and sensitivity of 98 dB. Quite a low impedance of 32 Ohm makes it usable with low impedance devices. The battery life of Skullcandy Grind is average among the type of wireless headphones and is 12 hours.

Skullcandy Grind review

Sound

The headphones sound really good, engaging, and clear with voices and instruments. The bass is not boomy and mids are decent. The trebles are a bit screaming with some bright tracks. I could not enjoy the soundstage for the closed cups, still the imaging is harmonious and nice to listen to. I would call its sound quality above average and satisfactory for most casual users.

Noise cancelling

There are no active noise cancelling functions but they isolate you from the outer world a bit for the closed cups.

Connectivity

Skullcandy Grind comes with a detachable cable of 120 cm/3.9 ft. The wireless connection is provided with Bluetooth.

Comfort and design

On ear cups are more comfortable compared to over ear for they do not make ears as hot and sweat for long sessions. Skullcandy Grind is very lightweight. It is just 183 g/6.4 oz. The ear pads are soft and they do not make much pressure on the head. The headband is adjustable and less padded but it is very comfortable and not tight to wear for hours. Unfortunately, they do not fold. Metal frame and plastic cups look minimalistic and durable.
