Before we get to the earbuds we should probably talk about the charging case that comes with it. The more true wireless earbuds I review, the more I realize that a product is only as good as its case. The skullcandy indy evo dsgn pc ut follows in that theory with a small and rounded case that feels much better than the one that came with the skullcandy push ultra. It’s also much easier to drop into my pocket. For more than half the price, this gives the AirPods a run for its money when it comes to portability.

The earbuds can be easily slotted back into the case thanks to tiny magnets and a cutout for each ‘bud.

The case flips open to reveal a cutout that the earbuds fit in, and as soon as it is: three small LED lights on the front of the case light up to let you know roughly how much battery is left. The skullcandy earbuds wireless are held in place by magnets, but I found that the case lid doesn’t close as easily as it opens. It seems to rely on resistance to stay shut rather than magnets, so if the ear tips are askew, the case won’t close properly which can be annoying.

Speaking of the ear tips, there are two here. The first is the standard ear tips that get inserted into your ear, and the second is more like a sleeve that helps to keep them securely in your ears by pushing back against the inside of your ear. The combination of the two makes this one of the best fitting skullcandy true wireless earbuds I’ve tried.

The Skullcandy Indy earbuds have a touch-sensitive spot on the outside for playback controls.

All that said, the Skullcandy Indy Evo Indy isn’t perfect. While the drop in build quality is only kind of present with the case, it is front and center with the earbuds. The whole thing is made entirely of cheap plastic and the touch-sensitive controls along the aren’t always accurate when you’re trying to control payback.

While the touchpads may not be the greatest, the actual touch controls are well thought out. One of the main reasons I don’t like touch-sensitive controls is because typically companies make a single tap responsible for pausing the music. It sounds like it makes sense, but I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve accidentally tapped a touchpad and paused the music unintentionally. That isn’t the case with the Skullcandy Indy Evo because a single tap on either earbud only controls volume, so it’s lower stakes if the earbuds register an accidental tap.

Does the Skullcandy Indy Evo True Wireless stay connected?

The Skullcandy Indy Evo is rocking Bluetooth 5.0. Assuming your next few devices are Bluetooth 5 compatible you should be able to enjoy a longer range and more data transfer.

How good is the Skullcandy Indy Evo True Wireless’ battery life?

When it comes to battery life we managed to squeeze out 4 hours, 23 minutes of constant playback at an output of 75dB(SPL), but Skullcandy claims the charging case can up that to about 16 hours. So you can charge them back up fully roughly three times before you need to charge the case itself.

How well does the Skullcandy Indy Evo isolate noise?

You won’t find any newfangled active noise cancelling on the Skullcandy Indy, so all your noise reduction comes from passive isolation. Low-frequency sounds, like the din of an airplane, will come through clear as day, but babies crying on the bus and clanging dishware will get dampened with the Indy.
