Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds Review
Founded in 2003, Skullcandy is one of those brands people have been comfortable with. The notable skull logo has gained fame with low-cost gear, headphones, and earbuds. Like other firms, Skullcandy’s venture has been in the world of wireless earbuds. The Skullcandy Sesh true wireless earbuds look promising on a surface level. And keeping in mind that there are many pros of these earbuds. There’s one major torment point that makes it hard to prescribe them to clients in the market.
The Skullcandy Sesh is a not too bad pair of remote in-ear earphones that offer an awesome experience. They’re made out of plastic of decent form quality that feels strong, particularly at the cost. These in-ear earphones have a tight fit and are comfortable. They even support noise cancellation, for the gym or your day-by-day drive. Their battery life isn’t good, with 3.5 hours from the earbuds and an extra two batteries. A list of other major features is given below:
Design and features
The Skullcandy Sesh earbuds are IP55-evaluated. This makes them oppose sweat, surface moisture like rain, and dust. So they ought to be fine for running, for the gym, for cutting bushes, or building something in your workshop.
The internal batteries in the earbuds should give you around 3 hours of music. And the battery in the charging case will finish off the batteries about 2.3 more times. This gives you an average time of 10 hours. It has a visual indicator that shows the remaining battery life when you press the button. The red lights on the earbuds tell you that the earbuds are charging. The lights go out when the earbuds get charged.
Each earbud has a button under the Skullcandy logo. The button performs various tasks relying upon which side (left or right) and how often you press it. For instance, pressing the button on either earbud will stop the music and a second press will resume it. You can press the right button for 2 seconds to skip a track and the left button plays the previous track. These features are in the user’s guide to making it easy for clients.
Comfort and Fit
Because of their lightweight build, you don’t feel them in the ears. They stick in well and for the most part, don’t move once you insert them. But the unusual packaging doesn’t fit right. You have to re-adjust them while in use to keep the isolation and bass.
The earbuds look ergonomic, but the experience is unique. They’re comfy when you start using it. But before that, you have to adjust it many times. They may look ergonomic yet fit amusing.
The casing doesn’t fit all ears the same. When you move your face, you’re going to lose the airtight fit. But the earbuds are very easy to use. You can use them for a long time without any problem. They don’t irritate your ears and are lightweight.
The Sesh has a prominent mid-bass, which makes them sound very bassy. Yet, this isn’t an issue as it adds some weight and punches to most tracks. But, on certain tracks, like electronic music, the mid-bass can irritate. In such a case, the user might want to lower the volume.
The mid-range performance is good. It’s not the most nitty-gritty, but it’s enjoyable without dialing it down by force. Vocals in music sound great and tuning in to podcasts is favorable.
The treble execution is dull. It’s moved off at better quality and there isn’t enough detail and power to it. This creates a dim sound and you don’t get better quality than you would with a costly pair of headphones. But if you don’t care for brilliant treble, then at that point the smooth highs of the Sesh will be like you would prefer. Such earbuds may get very loud, but there is no distortion. The soundstage is narrow due to the in-ear design of Skullcandy Sesh.
You must be wondering to know that are skullcandy sesh noise cancelling or not. The answer is yes. They block background noise to a considerable limit. Passive noise cancellation is normal for in-ear earphones. That implies they block the majority of the noise and more than most on-ear and over-ear earbuds. Noise cancellation depends upon the size of the ear tips that you use. With the basic silicone tips in the pack, you can pick from 3 sizes. But, you can improve noise cancellation with memory-foam ear tips. These ear tips don’t come with the packaging, so you have to buy them on your own.
Sesh wireless earbuds offer the same experience as wired Skullcandy earbuds or headphones. In particular, the sound is bass-rich without sacrificing a lot on the high end. These are not audiophile, impartial adjusted listening devices.
There is an observable distinction between the Sesh earbuds and my Seinheiser headphones. Phone calls sound fine and the person on the other end can hear you very clearly.
Skullcandy Sesh has normal Bluetooth support. The earbuds turn on when removed from the case, but not always. They use the most recent Bluetooth 5.0, which has the usual range of around 33ft (10m). It quits working after the second divider. If you put 1 wall in the middle of your cell phone and the Sesh earbuds, they generally work.
Most Bluetooth earphones have a sound delay in videos if you examine. Skullcandy Sesh is the same, but, you can still watch YouTube without irritation. The Sesh supports Bluetooth codec, SBC, which makes sense since they’re so cheap.
Setup or Installation
Before use, the user must charge the case and the earbuds. A complete charge should take under 3 hours.
The Sesh earbuds should enter pairing mode with set into and taken out of the charging case. You can also pair them manually by using the buttons on the earbuds.
Sesh Bluetooth earbuds last around 3 hours for every charge. Plus, come with around 7 hours more in the charging case. This is on the lower end for the category, yet it’s ok for the cost. You can set them to 30% volume which will get you longer use per charge.
The charging case to a battery indicator on it. The charging case feels very strong and has a LED screen to show how much battery is there.
The earbuds fit in the case with ease. It is very easy to take them out or plug them back in. They snap in with the help of magnets. There are two metal connectors each to charge the earbuds. When you place them back in the case, the light on each earbud goes red to show charging. The light on earbuds goes green when it’s completely charged.
They don’t support speedy charging. But to get to 100% battery from zero it’ll take almost 2 hours. The charging cable is the old Micro-USB, which spares costs but isn’t as quick nor the latest version.
The Skullcandy Sesh is better than average blended-use earphones. Their sound production is even, but it’s very bass-rich. They’re no doubt comfortable and cancel noise. So we can say that it means they might be a decent choice to use during your day-by-day drive or in the workplace.
Well, their battery is disappointing, with under 4 hours from a charge and two extra charges from the case. They are portable though because of their wireless design. They also have a steady and breathable fit, making them a good choice for workouts.
