Skullcandy Grind Wireless headphone: A budget Bluetooth contender
Tv & Audio
Skullcandy's Grind is one of our favorite budget on-ear headphones and now comes in a wireless Bluetooth model called the Grind wireless, which retails for 90 dollars.
From a design Stand point the Grind Wireless is very similar to the Grind and is available in six different colors at launch.
This headphone is lightweight, but seems sturdily constructed with a metal headband and plastic ear cups that don't look or feel cheap.
It's comfortable to wear particularly for an on ear model and has a microphone built into the right ear cup along with volume controls And a pause play button that also answers and ends calls.
You hold the volume up button to advance tracks forward and hold the volume down button to go back a track, battery life is rated at twelve hours.
Alas it doesn't fold up or come with a carrying case but that's a relatively minor gripe.
The important thing is that this is a very good sounding bluetooth headphone for the price With well balanced sound, pretty tight bass, and decent clarity.
It's still a blue tooth headphone however, so you'll still get a touch of bluetooth dullness when you listen to it.
But this competes well with bluetooth headphones.
I've tested the cost.
$150 or even $200 Over time, the wired Grind has come down in price and now can be had for around $40 on line.
This wireless model will hopefully come down a bit too, making it an even better bargain.
