    Best non-AirPods I've ever owned

    The pros: - they stay stuck in your ear and don't come out - charges in the case which is nice - the bass is really nice - pairing is fast and easy - changing tracks is easy. The left side is for decreasing volume and going back a track, while the right side is for increasing volume and skipping a track. Very intuitive. The cons: - Inside the case, they automatically connect/pair, turn on, and start playing music without me turning them on and this can get quite annoying. It keeps automatically connecting so your best option is to shut off bluetooth but you shouldn't have to do this. Overall, I'd still recommend it.

    Great Earbuds for Someone Who Doesn't Like Earbuds

    I, by nature, am not an earbud kind of person. I usually find them uncomfortable and cumbersome, but I will say I like the Skullcandy Push Truly Wireless Earbuds. I will be travelling overseas soon and wanted some earbuds to use on the plane that are wireless and comfortable. I love that they come in a charging case so they will not be easily lost. I cannot comment on the length of a charge yet, but I can say they are comfortable and play music incredibly well. I do find all the different directions for changing volume, etc quite overwhelming, but I'm sure it will become easier over time. I look forward to using them on my trip, but so far they are a favorite for me.

    Very easy pairing, but buttons can be finicky

    There are some good, and bad, with these headphones. Starting with the good: Packaging: Very nice with a good presentation of the headphones. Easy enough to get them out. Use: Pairing. They are probably the easiest headphones I've ever paid using bluetooth. No fussing around with multiple button presses and holds. After the very easy initial pair, as soon as you touch the headphones and pick them up they are paired with my phone. great! Buttons: While these are a con, I'll get to that later. The good part is they are easy to use and not confusing. Changing tracks, etc. is very easy to do and doesn't require any confusing presses or positioning. Music Quality: good. no complaints here. They sound like I would expect headphones of this size to sound. Not super Bassey, but not under Bassey either. Phone calls: Like most headphones, you can use these to make/take phone calls. I wouldn't recommend it though. The people on the other end said I sounded like a bad speakerphone and I had to speak louder than normal. I just switch and use the phone regularly. Ok, Cons: They are quite large to be sitting in your ears without being attached to anything. With that, you have to adjust them regularly. Since the buttons are easy to use, you end up pressing them all the time when adjusting the headphones. It got quite annoying. Also, since they are large, working out with them isn't very comfortable. I don't like the looks of them either, but the looks part is just an opinion and is up to the user, doesn't affect how they are used/work. Overall, I wouldn't recommend these. The cons outweigh the pros in my opinion.

    I was excited to select these Skullcandy Push Truly Wireless Earbuds in exchange for the earbuds and an honest review. Since I live in North Florida I'm able to enjoy the great outdoors year 'round. So, my earbuds must be able to perform in my humid climate. One of the many features of these earbuds is their IPX4 rating, which is both sweat and water resistant. For me an absolute must. For the past three weeks I have used these earbuds everyday, especially while doing my outdoor yard chores. I live on a six-acre, wooded parcel and there is always something that needs my attention, and I love listening to music while I work. So, I'm going to begin my review with what I have learned using these earbuds everyday: What I love about using these Skullcandy earbuds? AUDIO - The audio quality is always the main reason why we purchase any set of earbuds. For the first-time version of Truly Wireless earbuds, Skullcandy has done a credible job. The sound quality is surprising for the value of these earbuds. The low and mid-ranges are emphasized leaving treble and clear voice in the background, but not drowned out. IF you get these buds nestled correctly in your ears, the rich bass at the low ranges is exciting, especially for walks, runs, and physical workouts. However, there is no EQ, or pre-set adjustments, nor any high-end codecs to deliver high resolution, audio quality over Bluetooth. In summary you get bang-up audio quality, overall, in comparison to other earbuds at this price point, IMHO. I have three other, more expensive earbuds, and Skullcandy is equal in features and competitive in audio quality. WooHoo! INTUITIVE CONTROLS - There is a button (about the size of a dime) on each bud towards the bottom of each earbud. The button on each earbud (Left or Right) features ON/OFF controls, Volume, Pairing to Smart Phones, Making and Receiving Phone Calls, Changing Tracks, and my favorite, Activate Voice Assistant, particular to either 'L' or 'R' earbud, or both. See User Manual for specifics. The auto-ON and auto-OFF features by placing the earbuds back in their case, or taking them out is super cool. There is an easy-learning-curve to these control buttons, but, you have to use these buds for several days. I felt comfortable of mastering these controls after four days of constant use. In addition to these simple controls you get 'Voice-Announcements' like when you are connected to BT, Earbuds 'ON', or 'OFF', etc. PAIRING TO MY DEVICES - What I found to be really unique is that these Skullcandy buds not only easily pair to my mobile phones, but, PC, Tablet, Laptop, I-Pad, MP3 Player, Switch, PS4, etc. They pair to any of your devices unlike many other wireless, BT earbuds. They don't support multi-device pairing and can only connect to one Bluetooth source at a time. They have no registry to remember all of your other devices. Also, keep in mind that there is a latency (lag time delay), which makes these buds not very good for use in any kind of gaming. They use a 4.2 BT Interface, which is as simple as it gets. DESIGN & FIT - The overall design with lightweight plastic body and gel 'Fit' ear hook had fooled me. At first glance these buds look bulky and heavy - far from the truth. Skullcandy provides three pair of gel ear cup inserts for varied fit. Surely, one pair will fit you comfortably, so you can enjoy the robust sound quality of these earbuds. TIP - Install each earbud as far as it will go comfortably in your ear canal for more impressive sound and more secure fit. I was impressed after wearing these buds outside for over four hours each day, and, sweating because of the heat and humidity, they have NOT stressed my ears and remained comfortable to wear. YooHoo! SMART PHONE CALLS - It is super easy to answer and end a phone call. Just touch either 'R' or 'L' button once to answer a call, or end a call. My favorite phone use is through the Voice Assistant feature (SIRI for me to make calls). You can use whatever Voice Assistant on your Smart Phone is available and is enabled, and, or Alexa. It is easy to activate by simply pressing either the 'L' or 'R' earbud three times. Be aware that phone calls are heard over the 'L' ear bud only and are 'mono'. The mic is also on the Left earbud, and is of decent audio quality and clearly heard by your party. RECHARGEABLE BATTERY - I was able to use my Skullcandy earbuds for over five and a half hours before I had to recharge them by placing the earbuds back in their protective case. Fully charged in their case the buds can give you up to twelve hours of listening time. WoW! It took me approximately two hours to fully charge the earbuds in their case using the furnished and latest, USB 'C' cable. You can also charge the case with your PC, laptop, etc, as long as it has a USB Port. The case has four LED Blue Indicator lights to give you the battery status. You can depress the button just under the LED lights for the battery-charge status at any time. What I think needs to improve these Skullcandy earbuds? FIT - The gel 'FIT' ear piece is too short for my ears to retain them securely (OK, I have big ears). However, I'm guessing I'm not alone in this issue. This makes me wonder just how secure these earbuds would be for gym workouts, and running, or jogging? However, my wife says they fit her ears securely enough for physical workouts and running (She has 'normal' sized ears). Skullcandy, please look into redesigning your FIT gel ear piece for Big-Eared folks like me. High Resolution Codecs - High Resolution codecs deliver CD quality sound over Bluetooth. aptX HD and LDAC along with Apple ALAC would enhance the already good sound to great sound quality. Please look into Skullcandy for your next upgrade into Truly Wireless Earbuds. CONTROL BUTTON - The control button on each earbud is too large in comparison to the size of the earbud body. Consider making the button much smaller. It took me two weeks to figure it out. It was so confusing trying to insert the buds into my ears while NOT touching the buttons - YUK! Since the earbuds were 'ON', while I tried inserting them correctly into my ears I inadvertently touched the Control Button and changed the settings'to who knows what'. I eventually learned to manually shutoff the earbuds when I took them out of their case'till they were inserted correctly in my ears. Then, I turned them 'ON' - so much easier. . . . CONCLUSION - The Skullcandy Push Truly Wireless Earbuds are a great value for the quality audio and features of these FUN earbuds. I love them because I can use them and enjoy their sound quality outside in the Florida heat & humidity. They have some'shortcomings', but not enough for me to give them less than five stars. . . . These earbuds would make a great gift for that 'physically-active' family member or friend. They are inexpensive when you consider the multi-functional features and sound quality.

    I have wanted a pair of truly wireless headphones for a long time now. When I received these, I was pleasantly surprised at the size and form factor. These headphones are a cool color, and they come with a case that not only stores the headphones, but also is used to charge them. The headphone case is charged by a USB-C cable. The headphones advertise 12 hours of battery life. I believe that is due to the headphones possibly holding 6 hours of charge and the case holding an additional 6 hours of charge. I have not tested the complete battery life of the headphones. It is hard to tell because immediately upon placing the headphones back in the case, they automatically start charging again. I almost wish it was possible to turn the charging on when you want them to charge. I wonder if this will affect the battery life in the long run due to the constant charging. Pairing these to my phone was easy. After taking them out of the case the turn on and there are instructions with how to place the headphones in pairing mode. Making and receiving calls is also simple. If you push a button on either headphone, the call will answer. The only thing that has taken some time to get used to is the phone call only coming through the left ear piece. When on the phone, the right ear piece remains silent. Audio quality is actually pretty good. While it does not fully hold up to some other, higher quality brands, it is definitely NOT disappointing. The headphones have good volume and great bass response. Changing tracks and volume on the headphones takes a bit of getting used to. The instructions provided list the amount of button clicks that are needed to change tracks, change volume, and answer the phone. The buttons are relatively large and each headphone has one. The only issue I found was, when I reached up to adjust the headphone, I had many times I would accidentally bump or push the button due to the size and placement. This would pause my music or hang up my phone call. I am sure over time I will get used to the button placement, but it is worth noting. All in all, if you are looking for an above average set of headphones that won't break your bank account, these are a great choice!

    Very nice - for the price

    I think Best Buy needs another rating - overall for the price. At a list price of $100, they're really nice. Compared to my Jabra Elite Active 65t or my Bose SoundSport Free headphones, they don't stack up so well. But, at half the price of either of these, they're a bargain. In general, wireless earbuds look odd, like you miss your Google Glass. These take odd to a new level, as the bean shape and bright color look like a pair of beetles are coming out of your ears. The fit's solid. You put the buds in and give them a twist, which allows the wings to lock into your lobes. They stay in place while you move around. Range is excellent, on par with my more expensive buds, absolutely no complaints there. Sound quality is good, but not great. Subtlety is lost in the mix, the bass is significantly boosted, and mids tend to blur together. You won't hear the pick striking the guitar string or the saxophone reed squeak, but it's pleasant enough given, once again, the price. Battery life is excellent, exceeding my other buds (but far off my over the ear cans). I expect around eight hours between charges. The charging case is huge. By volume, it's about twice the size of the Jabra case. It does have enough battery life in it to recharge the buds once, which is disappointing given the sheer size of the unit. @@@@@@@@ The Jabra case will recharge twice. @@@@@@@ It does magnetically lock the buds into their proper place, which is reassuring on two fronts; you're less likely to open it to uncharged buds, and they're less likely to fall out when the case comes open. Controls are simple. Touch either bud once to pause or start the music, twice to raise the sound (right) or lower it (left), a medium length push to activate the digital assistant. Not that said digital assistant was able to understand me at all, because... The microphone is sub-par (perhaps sub-sub-par). It didn't sound good, or really acceptable, on anyone I had try speaking through them. If you have a deep voice, like I do, you can forget it completely. The sounds of the room frequently come through louder than your voice, although the quality is so bad it's hard to make those sounds out. Build quality has me concerned. The case feels cheap. The buttons on the buds feel and sound cheap when you press them, not reassuringly solid like the more expensive buds. I used to buy my teenager Skull Candy headphones - they sounded good enough that she would keep the volume reasonable, and when they were lost or broken,I wasn't upset. This means I've a lot of experience with Skull Candy's customer support, and it's excellent. They've stood behind every product I've purchased. The bad news is that every product has, at some point, broken. How much of that was build quality versus the life of a teenager, I don't know, but the initial impression of the Push gives me pause. Overall, if you want a pair of decent wireless earbuds and you just don't want to spend a bunch of cash, these are an excellent option. I would suggest that you be gentle with them, though.
