Skullcandy Grind Wireless Review Much Improved

The Skullcandy Grind Wireless is very pleasant to look at and feel, offers easy wireless playback and even sounds great. There is a good balance between heat up and Sharpness for the Audio, and despite some compromises, it is still one of the best wireless headphones at this price.


Skullcandy has been a well-known Audio manufacturer for some time, best known for its unorthodox designs of its headphones range. Admittedly, some headphones from Skullcandy were a bit exaggerated with their design. The Grind wireless headphones partly defies this convention of big bodies and bright colors here, and aims to put more emphasis on basic audio performance.

That’s as much as we thought at launch. Skullcandy explained that they wanted to continue receiving the good feedback they received for the Grind wired headphones while presenting energetic and even tighter designs. After spending two weeks running around my ears with the Grind Wireless, here’s what we found out about the Skullcandy Grind wireless headphones.

Audio Performance

The Skullcandy Grind Wireless impressed in terms of audio quality, balance and depth compared to the company’s previous products. The audio transmission brings you a generous amount of bass, associated with bright highs and slightly degraded mids. Unlike a number of Skullcandy headphones, the low frequencies are not overwhelming, but healthier and heat up. This is crucial to form the backbone of a good helmet. However, the low frequencies sound a little distorted, and at higher volumes, even tracks like Queens We are the Champions sound slightly distorted in terms of bass performance. It may match the tracks played by Flea, but Leland Sklar, Roger Waters, John Entwistle and Billy Sheehan seem a little dirtier than usual. Alternatively, the low frequencies can be looser than the rigid compactness and heat up demonstrated by the selection of audio equipment.

The centers are bright and heat up, but not the most detailed. The mids are cut to favor the highs and lows, which makes the whole thing loud and exciting. This will not appeal to purists, but for everyday listening it works to some extent. Instead of overwhelming you with an impressive variety of details in its audio transmission, the Grind Wireless balances the overall sound to provide the extra kick and volume you need to get through your daily commute. However, mids don’t sound crooked, and you don’t realize it until you realize that Sharon doesn’t sound as classy as her vocal range.

The highs are sharp, but not piercing. You can stay cool on a variety of tracks, from Toss the Feathers by The Corrs, Crazy by Aerosmith and even Kala Chashma from the recent Bollywood movie Baar Baar Dekho. This is by far the best aspect of the audio performance of the Skullcandy Grind Wireless, and although the treble is significantly increased, it helps to make the Audio more exciting than shrill.

The Grind Wireless works well with the pitch reading and the Audio Timbre is quite good. You have a distinct feeling that you are hearing a headset that is in the Middle Segment of the audio equipment, which means that it does not sound strikingly and of good quality. But it still works, and if the Grind Wireless had produced a better sound, it would have been even better.

In summary, the Skullcandy Grind offers a wireless sound that only works if you are not the greatest Audiophile. It provides the most important thing, and the only real “flaw” here is the excessive number of Audio leaks that force you to turn down the volume. Fortunately, the headphones are very noisy and retain their clarity and composure at about 65% volume. At this price, the Grind Wireless is one of the best contenders for the best segment of wireless in-ear headphones.
