Features

With a frequency response field of 20Hz-20KHz the device should deliver a clear sound of high fidelity. The sensitivity of 98 dB supports its rich sound at high volumes. And 32 Ohm of impedance make it a mobile compatible tool for many audio devices. All the Skullcandy Riff Wireless specs show it a decent tool for audiophiles so let’s check it in practice. The battery life is not the longest for the wireless headphones, but 12 hours are not bad also taking into account that it has a speed charge.

Connectivity

The Skullcandy Riff Wireless headphones have wireless connection only. It is supported by the Bluetooth version 4.1.

Comfort and design

Skullcandy Riff Wireless is very light with the weight of 275 g/9.7 oz. They are very nice to carry for their foldable cups. The cup cushions are very soft and pleasant to touch. They have a very plasticky build that looks cheap. Still the adjustable headband makes them fit comfortably. The plain design will suit most users.
