Skullcandy releases industry-first headphones

Combining three audio technologies.

Skullcandy is launching the Crusher Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) headphones – the only headphones on the market to deliver the combination of three technologies – patented Skullcandy Sensory Bass, Active Noise Cancellation and Personal Sound.

Skullcandy Sensory Bass offers users the broadest range of adjustable sensory bass to date, while Active Noise Cancellation actively monitors the surrounding environment to filter out external noise, and Personal Sound allows users to custom-tune the headphones to unique hearing needs through the new Skullcandy app, including the bass line, background vocals and more. The app also enables toggling personal sound profiles on and off, easy in-app pairing, headphone firmware updates, product registration, and access to user guides.

Crusher ANC boasts up to 24 hours of battery life plus Rapid Charge technology, providing three hours of playtime with just a 10-minute charge. It comes with a full suite of media controls including activate assistant, a removable AUX cable, and a durable flat-fold travel case.

If the headphone is misplaced or stolen, Crusher ANC includes a built-in Tile tracker so owners can easily locate it using the Tile app.

Skullcandy first introduced the Crusher Wireless headphone in 2016 and the latest iteration will become available from November 15 for RRP $599.95 via the Skullcandy website and JB Hi-Fi in Deep Red and Fearless Black.

Skullcandy CEO, Jason Hodell said, “Improving on the famous sensory bass immersion of our industry-leading Crusher family, we have now added proprietary active noise cancellation and an industry-first personalisation experience that no other headphones can match. You won’t just hear your music; you’ll feel it like never before.”

Skullcandy will also launch its first ANC earbuds, Method ANC, available in JB Hi-Fi and other select retailers from mid-November for RRP $179.95.

Method ANC sports a lightweight, collarless design and is IPX4-rated for sweat and water resistance. Key features include up to eight hours of battery life and Rapid Charge technology, allowing for two hours of playtime from just 10 minutes of charging, built-in Tile tracker, FitFin ear gels and magnetic earbuds that can be secured around the neck when not in use. Its suite of media controls include the ability to activate a device’s native assistant via the in-line remote.
