    I love these earbuds. They are light weight and most importantly they have great sound. Also the storage case not only charges them there is a battery level indicator so you know when you need to plug it in to bring the charge back up. The sound quality for phone calls is also very nice. My friends report they can hear me very clearly. I think these are great quality for the money and would recommend them highly.

    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.

    Used these the last few days at work and while doing yard work. Really comfortable and good sound, especially for the price. Skullcandy have always been a good dollar/quality value, and these are no exception. Charging case is small enough for pockets and recharges headphones quickly. Overall a good buy. Highly recommend keeping the packaging. It's a solid plastic box good for keeping all accessories in.

    I've a few sets of "wireless" (Bluetooth) ear buds, but this is my set of truly wireless ear buds. To be honest, my first worry was losing one. Not having them physically tethered together was always weighing in the back of my mind at the beginning. But after a few uses, I got used to it and was able to enjoy the experience these reasonably priced ear buds provide. Setup in and of itself was a breeze. I've a Galaxy Note and it was nothing to pair and get using. I would highly suggest reading the manual considering each ear bud has one button and depending on how many times you press that button determines what action it will take. This takes a little time to get used to, but once muscle memory kicks in, it's simplistic. Like I said at the beginning, I've had a few sets of Bluetooth ear buds (wired between the buds), and my concerns was twofold when acquiring this set. 1) What would the battery life be? 2) How would the sound quality measure up? 1) Battery life thus far is surprisingly long! I didn't do a running tally on how many hours I used before the first charge, but it was LONG. Much longer than any other headset I've used. Charging in the ear bud's case is quick and easy. Just drop them in and a short time later their charged. As with any other set of wireless ear buds, I always keep a wired pair with me in case of a recharge in the middle of an activity. HINT: When you hear the low battery chime, you have about 15 to 20 minutes before they completely die. 2) As for sound quality, I was shockingly surprised. With no equalizer functions, I didn't expect much. Again, for the price range they're in, this is a steal for the quality. As with any ear buds, you need to tamper your expectations. These are not going to sound like a wired seat of high end Bose, but they hold their own. The bass is passable. The treble is good. Quality is slightly muffled, but I've definitely experienced worse on more expensive sets. Overall, I would recommend these ear buds. They provide a very portable option for listening to music in a variety of activities. They remain in place due to the availability of interchangeable sizes for the ear pieces which assists with comfort as well! Their quick charging and long lasting battery make them perfect for multiple long exercise sessions or even days at work where you want to drown out what is going on around you.

    ---HIGHLIGHTS--- Excellent Sound Quality, Stable Bluetooth Connection, Automatic Turn On/Off, 6 Hour Battery, Water Resistant, Fits Securely, Bluetooth Version 4.2, USB-C Charging ---DESIGN and CONTROLS--- These in the ear headphones are very lightweight and comfortable to wear. The ear gels hold them tightly in my ear canal which in turn helps them stay put and sound good. With this type of design, it is critical to make sure that the ear gels are tightly inserted in the ear canal. If you don't establish a secure fit the sound quality will suffer. The hard case and left and right earbuds are an integrated system. The case doubles as an external battery that charges them while protecting and storing them. To charge them simply insert them into the case and close the lid. To charge the case connect it to a charger with the included USB-C cable. It takes about 4 hours to fully charge the case and headphones. The battery last for about 6 hours. If fully charged, the carrying case can provide another 6 hours of charge for a combined 12 hours of charge. Just be aware that after they are drained, you must put them back in the case to charge before they can be used again. After using them for a couple of days I have found the rated battery life to be accurate. They automatically turn on when taken out of the case and automatically turn off when put back in the case. I prefer this design to having to press and hold a button to turn on and off. Once paired they will automatically connect when turned on. The Bluetooth pairing process was very easy. Once paired subsequent connections were fast and proved to be very stable. They are certified as being sweat and water resistant (IPX4). The control buttons that take some practice to learn, but once you get the hang of them they work adequately. However, I prefer to use my phone to control them. The right unit cannot be used without the left one. The left one is the primary and can be used by itself, if you only want to use one, but the right one can't be used independently. The right unit can only be paired to the left one. ---SOUND QUALITY--- The overall sound quality of these headphones is excellent! The sound is very musical, clear, and full range. They also belt out a surprising amount of hard-hitting bass for such small earbuds! The call quality is typical for Bluetooth compact headphones. When on a call they default to mono sound, which is preferable so there is not an annoying echo. As with all headphones, call quality can be negatively affected by wind noise and other ambient sounds. It uses Bluetooth version 4.2 which offers less compression that the original codec and creates a stable Bluetooth connection. ---BOTTOM LINE--- The Skullcandy Push True Wireless In-Ear Headphones sound great and are perfect for active lifestyles. They are easy to take on the go and sound great for the price. If you are still using the earbuds that came with your cell phone or tablet, then you are in for a treat because the improvement in sound quality will be what I describe as night and day.

    Good Audio, Intuitive Controls & Feature Packed

    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.
