At almost half the price you can get the ‘Airpods’ experience. With more color options too! Apple is currently on version 2.0 of its iconic airbuds product. Recently Skullcandy took an opportunity and revealed its take on the unique design. With the Indy, Skullcandy managed to pack a lot of features in an $80 package, including a handy charging case.
The Indy’s overall design definitely takes inspration from the AirPods, but the buds themselves don’t have quite the round futuristic look that the apple product has. Skullcandy also installed a removable fin-like “stability gel” to help everything stay in place. The Indy is IP55 rated for sweat, water and dirt resistance, so you can take these to the gym or on a run.
Skullcandy brags that you can expect up to four hours of battery life on the buds alone. With the included charging case that packs enough power for three additional charges. you are looking at 16 hours total.
Like the case that comes with the AirPods, Skullycandy opted for a flip-top design including convenient charging indicators. You also have touch controls for taking calls, changing tracks and adjusting volume. Including a built-in microphone that will help you with those.
The $80 true wireless earbuds are available today direct from the company’s website.
