Some headphones deliver too much bass, others not enough. What if you could adjust the bass level directly from your headphones? This is the advantage of the Bluetooth Crusher Wireless model from the manufacturer Skullcandy. The left earpiece incorporates a slider which, when moved, adds bass to the sound, in the form of vibrations (haptic technology).
This is reflected in the bandwidth by the presence of a higher or lower peak in the 60 Hz zone. The system proves to be effective at listening and makes it possible to easily adjust the sound to one’s hearing tastes. But you must avoid pushing the cursor all the way, otherwise beware of headache. The “warm” sound is satisfactory for listening to “djeuns” music (rock, RnB, electro) but lacks a bit of detail for more sophisticated music such as jazz and classical. To enhance it, add treble with the equalizer of the mobile device.
More than 50 hours of autonomy
The other good surprise of the Skullcandy helmet is its excellent endurance. We measured almost 51 hours of operation between two battery charges, carried out using the micro USB cable provided.
If the battery is flat, or to use the headphones with a device without Bluetooth, the manufacturer delivers an audio cable with remote control. Too bad, however, that it does not allow to adjust the volume.
A robust model
The Crusher Wireless is a model that gives pride of place to plastic (in black or white) without this posing any problem of robustness.
Its headphones fold down for easy transport and, thanks to the shape memory, are very comfortable. However, we regret that the arch is a little hard.
The headphones correctly isolate external noise pollution but do not benefit from an active noise reduction system.
Finally, the three control buttons (volume, play / pause) on the right earpiece are easy to differentiate by touch.
The volume buttons allow you to change the song (long press) while the play button is also used to answer phone calls received by the connected smartphone.
