Feel the bass in your bones with Crusher Evo — the latest advancement in the famous Skullcandy Crusher line. Patented Adjustable Sensory Bass technology is an experience that you can’t get in any other headphones. And now, you can even customize the sound to your unique hearing through a quick audio test in the Skullcandy App. So you’ll hear the music exactly the way it was meant to be heard. Critical controls — call, track change, volume, and Crusher Bass — are conveniently located with easy-to-use tactile buttons. Tile finding technology lets you “ring” your headphones if they’re ever lost or misplaced, so you’ll never return home without them. Rapid Charge capability provides 4 hours of listening time on just 10 minutes of charge, and a full charge lets you feel the music for an amazing 40 hours. Crusher Evo is also travel-ready. It folds flat to fit perfectly into the included travel case.

Wow! I own other Skullcandy headphones, including a previous version of the Crusher series and these are by far the best version to date.
Skullcandy seems to have their own thing going as far as electronics styling is concerned. They have their own unique styling and aren’t too forward with their logo, which is a welcome sight. When wearing these, I feel great not having a massive logo on each of my ears. These headphones look the part, and definitely sound the part, which is ultimately the single most important part in choosing an audio product. Let's cut to the chase…
SOUND QUALITY & AUDIODO
The new Crusher EVO series have teamed up with Audiodo and Tile (more on Tile later), to bring a truly feature packed great set of headphones to market. With the free Skullcandy app, you can actually take a hearing test with test tones guided by the app, to customize your listening experience and tailor it to your (custom) ears. Let’s face it, not everyone's ears are even remotely the same, therefore this feature is an awesome addition to the package. The first thing I did after charging the headphones when unboxed, was to download the app and take the sound test. The test only took a minute or two and once complete, the app even showed me my personal graph on how each of my ears comprehended the test tones separately (see photo). Pretty cool feature! Once that was all complete, I opened my music streaming app and started testing different types of music. Everything from full blown metal, to pop, hiphop, and even classical, sounded really, really good. The bass level slider on the left headphone is placed right under the power button and is easy to operate to add minimal, all the way to head thumping bass. An excellent feature considering you may not want hiphop level bass when listening to other genres of music. That said, if you want to go crazy and thump thump, the power to do so is at your fingertip at all times. Other than the customization with Audiodo and the bass slider, the fidelity of the headphones is very nice. Having owned many of the competing brand (over ear) headphones, I can say without a doubt that the Crusher Evo is on par with the best consumer headphones you can get at the time of this review.
STYLING & COMFORT
As stated before, the styling (to me) is perfect. They aren’t too big, or small, but just right. There isn’t a massive billboard logo on each side. They fold down flat on your chest when not in use making them more comfortable to have on for extended periods of time. The ear cushions are super soft and comfortable and don’t cause any fatigue. The weight is also perfect for me and I do not feel any crown fatigue when wearing them for a long time.
THE OTHER STUFF
With Tile built in, you will always know where your headphones are. I didn’t have a Tile account until these, so I signed up quickly for one online and tested the feature to see how it performed. Once paired with my headphones, the Tile app found my headphones easily. There is a pulsing radar type graphic that gets stronger as you get closer to them (see photo). The headphones also make a whistling sound as you get closer even while they are turned off!
To charge the headphones, you use the included USB-C cable. Much better (IMO) than a micro USB cable. Battery life seems excellent so far. I have only charged them once when unboxed and have been listening all week.
They also provide a travel bag and a standard gold plated audio cable in case you want to plug them into an audio source.
All in all, I can’t say enough good things about this Crusher Evo series and I highly recommend you check them out.
Awesome sound quality with customizable bass level
Audiodo custom personal profiling for even more fine tuned sound
Excellent styling and very comfortable
Tile built in
Headphones rotate to lay flat on your chest
I like how the power button is orange so it can be identified easily
I would like to see a molded hard shell case included from manufacturers in the future for all premium headphone sets
I’ve used different Skullcandy earphones over the years, and recently they have really stepped up on their bass-emphasized systems and the Crusher Evo over-the-ear headphones is another great example of just that…Feeling the Bass!
On opening the box, there is a neat rollup carry case, the headphones, user guide and audio and charging (USB-C) cables. Glad to see Skullcandy going to the USB-C cable. I was really impressed with the build quality and the overall look of the Evos. The matte black body and black leather over-ear pads look stealthy and really well built. There is a rubber cushion on the arm that is really comfortable and holds the earphones in place. The control buttons are on the larger size for easy use, without being too big. The ability to adjust volume and tracks without having to take out my iPhone is a big plus. Essentially every feature of the headphones can be adjusted/controlled on the headphones including volume, track and of course bass levels.
A very helpful User Guide is included in the box and walks through all of the controls, setup and usage. It took about 10 minutes from unboxing to fully customized bass-rocking music. There's a Skullcandy app that should be downloaded, it's got a great sound-customization process. It's kind of like a hearing test which sets up the headphone's output based on the user's hearing.
Sound - this is what it's all about, and the Crusher Evos did not let me down. Skullcandy has done a great job of balancing the highs, mids and lows...and then they take it a step further with the Sensory Haptic Bass feature. With a slide of the control on the left ear cup, the haptic bass response can be boosted from nothing to whole body thumping goodness.
Skullcandy App – the app still has some room to grow, but has come a long way in the year plus I’ve been using it. The best feature is the audio test to set up user-specific audio output. It takes about 3 minutes and is like the old hearing test from grade school. Once completed, Audiodo™ technology is used to adjust audio output to the specific user’s hearing. The personal sound feature can be turned on/off in the app. There are also settings for music, podcast and movie modes which adjust the audio for the specified usage. Battery level and other info is also provided via the app.
Fit - the headphones are super adjustable and can really be customized to the user. The plush leather over-ear cups and rubber headband pad form to the head nicely and hold the headphones in place. I wore them for nearly 5 hours while doing yardwork and there were no "hot spots" or discomfort after being worn for an extended timeframe. And the rubberized headband kept them from moving around while moving around vigorously.
Battery Life – It seemed like there was no way of running these headphones out of juice. They were run for hours on multiple days before the % dropped into the 20s in the app. Plugged them in and tried the quick charge of about 10 minutes and the charge jumped up over 60%.
- Build quality is solid as expected from Skullcandy
- Controls are easy to find and use while wearing the headphones
- Sound quality is outstanding and the Haptic Bass feature is awesome!
- Updates to Skullcandy App including Podcast and Movie modes
- Foldability and included bag are bonuses for travelers
- Easy setup with the Skullcandy app, including Personal Sound setup
- Great battery life and quick charge feature
- Phone call and voice assistant support
- Didn’t really find any, Skullcandy is “Crushing” it with their headphones!
Overall, these are headphones that I would certainly recommend to anyone looking for great sound and the option to really Feel the Bass!
As a general, all-purpose, for every situation headphone, these are not my go-to headphones, but for music that celebrates bass or action movies, they are a really fun and a unique experience.
Because these aren’t my default go-to headphones, I initially had rated these at 4/5 stars. However, the sensory bass feature is really so unique and fun that it almost can’t be compared to other headphones. In my mind, it both creates a new category of headphones and rises to the top of it, so for that reason these headphones get 5 stars from me.
The unique thing about these headphones is the Adjustable Sensory Bass technology. What that effectively means is that you can feel the music, just like the deep shaking you can feel with a sub-woofer, but not in a way that is just "louder". It genuinely adds a different experience that I haven't found anywhere else, and watching any movie with deep bass, particularly action movies, really take on a new and more enjoyable experience.
— The slider on the headphones to adjust the sensory bass is such a clever implementation, and I find myself changing it between songs to really bring out the beauty the artist intended for a much larger subwoofer enhanced system. So many headphones allow EQ settings to be adjusted within an app, but for such a crucial feature, the implementation of a slider on the headphones was pure perfection. I would definitely take off a star or two had this not been physically adjustable because it feels necessary and really completes the product.
To recap — Adjustable Sensory Bass is freaking awesome and really THE reason to pick these headphones over others.
—Over all good to great, and I don’t really have complaints here. It’s really the sensory bass that makes these worth getting over other headphones, and other brands in this quality range definitely match the sound quality apart from that.
— The headphones themselves are comfortable. They fold to become more compact, but since I haven’t really traveled with them, they generally just stay opened sitting on my desk or hanging from a headphone stand.
— These headphones don’t have noise cancellation so while they’re great for louder music and really add a new dimension to the bass aspect of music and movies, they fail a bit in a loud environment when playing quieter music due to lack of noise cancellation which can be found on similar headphones.
Microphone / Phone Calls
— I’m not sure why, but I found that while using these headphones and received an incoming call, the audio did not switch to my headset as it normally does with my wireless headphones. I haven’t spent too much time troubleshooting this feature as it wasn’t a deal breaker, but it didn’t “just work” easily for me.
If you can live without noise cancellation, and are interested in the adjustable sensory bass feature that really brings music to life, I would definitely recommend these headphones.
I still find myself reaching for in-ear buds most of the time for the sake of convenience and use of microphone while on a call or in a meeting, but the Crusher Evo still get picked up a few times a week.
If you’re looking for a generic pair of headphones to use in a noisy environment, I’d go with a pair that supports noise cancellation over these. However, as mentioned several times, the sensory bass is truly a game changing experience and for that reason I would happily recommend giving these a try.
These are the first headphones I’ve tried that have really been an experience. If you want to experience music in a new way, pick these up and see for yourself.
I have been enjoying these wireless headphones for some time now. I would highly recommend them too as they are performing very well for a number of reasons. The 2 primary reasons in which I'd recommend these are because of their fit and their sound.
Firstly, they fit very well. They are comfortable to the touch and do not rub my head or ears in any odd ways which would be annoying. I have a large head too and there is plenty of wiggle room for those who need it too. The ear coverings are soft and cover your ear well enough to keep in the sound and reduce any from escaping from a bad seal to the ear. They even conveniently collapse and store in the provided canvas storage bag.
Secondly, the sound is better than i had expected. I have owned other headphones from this manufacturer before and the sound was good, but nothing overly impressive. These headphones act and deliver a top notch sound which quite frankly blew me away. Assuming you have a nice fit on your head these headphones are a for sure way to experience music in its expected way.
All in all due to the comfort level and sound profile that is delivered from these headphones, I would highly recommend these to anyone in need of a quality set of wireless headphones.
Biggest Bang for the money, been a few months and honestly it’s great if you like the bass! Don’t need to turn it up too high to get the effect needed. Overall I can hear the treble, mids and bass in clarity. I debated for a while on this pair and I’ve test monster, beats, JBL, and Harmon Kardon before this one. No regrets here at all and build quality is amazing for my needs! Also battery life is crazy long, lasts a week and more on 2-3hrs of daily use! 10/10 Skullcandy!
These headphones go above and beyond. The bass LITERALLY makes your brain rattle.
If you're not into the bass vibrating on your ears these headphones may not be for you. But for the people who like to feel the bass TRUST ME, these are the only headphones you'll ever need! They sound great, you won't regret buying these that's for sure.

If you are looking for the perfect bass headphones, then this Skullcandy-Crusher EVO will not disappoint. These headphones will deliver massive crushing bass sound. All the Skullcandy headphones that I have purchased in the past were relatively affordable and this Crusher EVO is no exception. The sound quality is so great and worth the money you spend on these. Initially, I started off with the bass as this is the signature of this marvelous headphones, but the other features are equally as good. The design of the headphones is superb. The headphones earpiece has hard outer shell and the inside of the earpiece has soft comfy foam ear cushions. The perfectly fit my big ears without any discomfort. Pairing these via Bluetooth is simple. Please download the Crusher EVO app from Skullcandy for perfect The sound that comes out of these headphones is very clean and detailed. And if you want the BASS to kick in just slide the bass slider up and you everyone around you will feel it. I tried these while watching Ready Player One and I must honestly state – these headphones will blow your mind. The rumbling of the cars in one of the scenes with the bass turned up – simply WOW!!! Phone calls are clear when using these headphones and the mic works very well too. Battery life is outstanding and it takes only few minutes to get a few hours of hearing enjoyment. I love these headphones and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for that extra boost in Bass. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.
The analysis of all aggregated expert reviews shows that the reviewers are positive about bass quality, durability and comfort. Editors are less positive about design and soundstage and have mixed opinions about usability.

Skullcandy Crusher Evo Wireless Review
The Skullcandy Crusher Evo Wireless are well-built wireless over-ears. They're designed to have a bass-heavy sound profile, and you can even use their haptic basFull Review
A:AnswerIdk about a usb but it should have an aux cord with it. I've never bought the Evos so I could be wrong but I do have the Crusher ANCs and they came with a USB cord to charge it and an AUX cord incase you wanted/needed wired listening.
