Skullcandy Grind Design

Skullcandy Grind does not do boring headphones. The se headphones have a classic on-ear design, with a removable cable that features an easy to use, one button control for answering phone calls, and managing your music, that they call TapTech. The materials used are premium and undoubtedly feel strong and nicely made. The Grind Headphones are available in Black, Royal Blue, White, and a really cool striped version with lots of yellow.

The headband offers the 1st impression, one made up of a faux leather that feels sufficient like the real thing. The Grind has a metallic headband and soft padding on the ear cups that really is a lot more comfortable than it seems. It is moved the built-in mic from the detachable tangle-free cable to inside the left earcup. So if you wish to have your headphone cable dangling underneath your shirt, this should make it simpler to make calls.

Skullcandy Grind: Performance

Skullcandy Grind Performance

Skullcandy has fitted the Grind headphones with a pair of custom-tuned drivers that give out a very well-balanced sound. The bass and mid-range sounds are particularly good. With such a stripped-down, but efficient design, you might assume that Skullcandy must have held back on sound efficiency to meet the low price point.

The re is a touch of bass and treble push with a little dip within the midrange, but overall the Grind is a well-balanced headphone that gives decent clarity and is pleasant to listen to.

Skullcandy Grind: Comfort

The combination of a light frame and the soft, accommodating ear pads make them excellent for wearing on the train, at your desk at work or hanging them around your neck. Pressure directed inward towards your ears is kept to a minimum, due to the flexible metallic frame and plush ear pads.
