Introduction Skullcandy Crusher 2014

The Skullcandy Crusher  2014 are excellent listening comprehension headphones with a reasonable level of comfort. They include a unique bass-boosting slider on the right ear cup that modulates the amount of bass, however, it causes them to sound imbalanced and worse for more critical listeners. Unfortunately, because they are primarily plastic and poorly constructed, they are not the most durable headphones.

For impartial listening, it’s about average. These headphones aren’t designed to produce the most balanced sound. Because of their exceptionally springy construction and bass slider, they are tuned for a strong low-end that, when pushed to the top, sounds too bass-heavy. This might be just what some bass enthusiasts are hoping for. However, except when the bass slider is set to 0, they would sound too uneven and unbalanced for neutral ears in most instances.

The Skullcandy Crusher sports a basic over-the-ear style that feels inexpensive. They’re all plastic, with enormous rectangular-shaped ear cups and a broad headband. They come in a range of color schemes to suit your preferences, ranging from an army green to a bright red choice that will stick out in a crowd.


The Skullcandy Crusher headphones are rather comfy. They’re rather light, and the ear cushions are well-padded and spacious enough to accommodate most ears. Unfortunately, they’re a little snug on the head, which may be tiring after a while, and the cushioning on the headband isn’t as comfy as the padding on the earcups.


The Skullcandy Crushers control layout is terrible, with just one button to play, pause, and skip music. They have a motorized slider that regulates the bass level but not the volume. This is quite disappointing given that the one inline control systems provided do not provide excellent tactile feedback.

Skullcandy Crushers fold into a smaller configuration, making them somewhat portable. They are, however, quite hefty over-ear earphones that are difficult to transport without a backpack. The ear cups are also not flat.

Build Quality 

The Skullcandy Crusher’s build quality is subpar at best. They’re completely made of plastic and rattle when you play music, particularly if you have the subwoofer slider up. They are not as robust as headphones in their price range, such as the Bluedio T4. We recommend the Crusher 360 Wireless or the normal Crusher Wireless for better-built Skullcandy headphones.


Because of their strong clamping force, these headphones are rather stable. Unfortunately, the huge ear cups and bulky over-the-ear design make them unsuitable for more strenuous physical activity. They hardly remain on your head during a light jog and are unsuitable for working out or exercising. On the plus side, if the wire becomes entangled in something, it will separate, preventing the headphones from being dragged off.

Mild Accuracy 

The Skullcandy Crusher has a mid-range response that is about average. The response is reasonably constant and uniform, although there is a huge 6dB bump at about 700 Hz. This emphasizes the mid-range by bringing vocals/leads to the front, making mixes sound upfront and boxy/honky.


The Crushers’ imagery is fantastic. The weighted group latency is 0.18, which is excellent. According to the GD graph, their whole group’s delayed response is virtually totally inside the audibility threshold. This results in a tight bass and a clear treble reproduction. Furthermore, our test unit’s L/R drivers were remarkably well-matched. This is necessary for proper positioning and localization of items in the stereo field (voices, instruments, video game effects).


The Skullcandy Crusher has a poor soundstage. The PRTF graph displays an erroneous and odd response, implying an artificial and inside-the-head soundstage. The closed-back construction of the earphones may also cause its soundstage to be viewed as less open compared to that of open-back earphones.

Noise Isolation

Isolation performance is poor. They accomplished no isolation in the bass region, where the rumbling of airplane and bus engines may be heard. Outside noise is reduced by around 5dB in the mid-range, which is insufficient for filtering out conversation. The isolate by roughly 26dB in the treble band, which is inhabited by sharp noises like S and Ts, which is above average.


The Crusher has a good leakage performance. The majority of the leakage occurs between 1KHz and 6KHz, which is not particularly wide and is largely centered in the treble region. As a result, the leakage will be fairly thin. The general amount of leaking is also not loud. With the music at 100dB SPL, the leakage at 1 foot away averages 39dB SPL and peaks at 50dB SPL, which is the same as an ordinary workplace noise floor.

Microphone Style

The Skullcandy Crusher comes with a standard in-line microphone. Speech captured or transmitted with this mic in quiet surroundings sounds slightly thin and lacks brightness and airiness, but it is still clear and comprehensible. However, in moderately noisy conditions, such as a busy street, it struggles to properly differentiate speech from background noise.

Recording Quality 

Crusher’s in-line microphone records rather well. The decrease in high-bass and low-mid frequencies makes recorded speech seem slightly thin. The treble roll-off reduces the brightness and airiness of the recorded voice. The area between HFE and HFE, on the other hand, is well-caught, resulting in a comprehensible and rather detailed speech.


The Skullcandy Crusher has a long-lasting AA battery that can provide up to 38 hours of continuous playing (average of three measurements) when the slider is set between 50 and 70%. This implies that if you set the slider to maximum bass, the battery life will be much less and much longer if you set it to 0. However, as the battery dies, the sound quality does not drop significantly. Even if you lose all of the improved bass effects, the rest of the frequency response remains the same.
