Skullcandy’s earphones and headphones are frequently special and extremist, for reasons, for example, styling and includes. All the time, you’ll see brilliant hues and audacious plans on a Skullcandy headset, or highlights that no other brand would even consider, such the tactile bass slider on the Skullcandy Crusher ANC. In spite of the fact that the common audiophile may peer down on Skullcandy, I’ve generally discovered its character rather charming.
The organization rushed to the genuine remote game both in India and abroad, and now has three of its actual remote headphone arrangement accessible in India – Push, Indy, and Sesh. Today, I’m evaluating another item in the Indy go: the Skullcandy Indy Evo. Estimated at Rs. 5,999, the Skullcandy Indy Evo challenges the developing rivalry in the mid-run portion, including my present top pick valued under Rs. 10,000, the Lypertek Tevi. Discover all that you have to think about the Skullcandy Indy Evo in this survey.

- Sound quality isn’t awful, yet it isn’t awesome either
Secure and comfortable fit on the Skullcandy Indy Evo
Like the Skullcandy Indy which it is the replacement of, the Indy Evo has an in-trench fit, with stems for the amplifiers and charging contact focuses. The styling is exemplary Skullcandy. Albeit plastic, the earpieces of the Skullcandy Indy Evo feel all around fabricated, and the inconspicuous components of modern plan, for example, the content on the earpieces and sequential number on the charging case do make this maybe the most pleasant looking pair of genuine remote headphones evaluated under Rs. 10,000.
What I very loved about the plan of the Skullcandy Indy Evo earpieces was the fit. The in-trench ear tips and ear were agreeable and secure, guaranteeing legitimate commotion detachment. Indeed, even with a moderate degree of movement (rapidly ascending and down stairways, for instance), the earpieces stayed safely set up in my ears and didn’t should be straightened out.
The charging instance of the Skullcandy Indy Evo is neither too little nor excessively huge, and has an attractive cover and USB Type-C port for charging. The earpieces lock set up attractively and stay safely. The headphones turn themselves now and again naturally on putting them in or eliminating them from the charging case.
Contact controls on the headphones function admirably, and it’s conceivable to control playback, volume, calls, surrounding sound mode, your voice collaborator, and equalizer presets all from the headphones straightforwardly through simple signals. Equalizer alteration is a fascinating touch, with three modes — digital broadcast, film, and music — with the sound explicitly set up for each utilization case.
The Skullcandy Indy Evo looks incredible, and has helpful touch controls
There is an application for the Skullcandy Indy Evo, yet it doesn’t do a lot and you could simply utilize the headphones without it. The application gives a speedy instructional exercise to the motion controls, and afterward lets you switch encompassing mode or see what equalizer mode is dynamic, yet does nothing else of any hugeness.
Like other Skullcandy headsets, the Indy Evo upholds Tile following. When set up with the Tile application, you can follow the area of every earpiece separately through the application and furthermore cause them to signal uproariously to assist you with discovering them on the off chance that you’ve lost them some place close by. The usefulness is essential, yet it may be helpful for a few.
The Skullcandy Indy Evo utilizes Bluetooth 5 for network, with help for just the essential SBC codec; the absence of help for AAC at this cost is somewhat frustrating. I experienced some availability issues with the headphones when tuning in to music, with the sound incidentally skipping or quieting for a small amount of a second despite the fact that the telephone and headphones were all near each other. This happened when combined with two separate Android cell phones, yet not with a MacBook Air, and was fixed by killing the headphones and on once more.
The headphones are controlled by 6mm drivers, with a recurrence reaction scope of 20-20,000Hz. The business bundle incorporates two sets of ‘soundness ear gels’ (the winged tips for a protected fit), three sets of silicone ear tips, and a USB Type-C link for charging.
Quick charging is upheld on the Skullcandy Indy Evo, with a 10-minute charge of the earpieces inside the case including two hours of tuning in, and brief charge of the case enough to top up the earpieces for two hours of tuning in too. The earpieces ran for barely five hours on a solitary charge, with the case including four extra charges for an aggregate of around 25 hours of listening for each charge cycle. That is about normal for genuine remote headphones in this value portion.
Nothing special about the sound on the Skullcandy Indy Evo
Skullcandy’s reasonable and mid-extend earphones and headphones have only here and there enjoyably shocked me, yet I’ve typically not been frustrated either. The Skullcandy Indy Evo is the same; it’s an utilitarian pair of headphones that avoids any and all risks with regards to sound quality. There’s nothing amiss with the sound, yet there’s nothing especially important about it either.
Moreover, restricting these headphones to the SBC Bluetooth codec additionally appeared to have affected sound quality. AAC codec backing may have given the Skullcandy Indy Evo a slight lift in sound quality and detail. All things considered, the sound is sufficiently pleasant, and great uninvolved commotion detachment guarantees a respectable enough listening experience.

The earpieces run for around five hours for each charge, while the case gives an extra four charges
In the case of tuning in to high-goal sound or normal compacted streams, the Skullcandy Indy Evo sounded to a great extent the equivalent. Indeed, even great Dolby Atmos Music tracks didn’t appear to have any effect; this shouldn’t be an issue in case you’re accustomed to tuning in to fundamental streaming sound or packed chronicles, yet the Skullcandy Indy Evo isn’t the ideal pick for clients who have a decent sound assortment to work with.
Tuning in to Must Be The Love by Arty and Nadia Ali, the Skullcandy Indy Evo’s sonic mark end up being very ‘sheltered’, adhering to the common V-molded sound that suits most well known music kinds today. The sound was uproarious and punchy, with a positive predisposition towards the lows and highs. The sub-bass frequencies specifically sounded more articulated, yet the lows held tight and consistently sounded refined instead of domineering.
Despite the fact that the sound is perfect and agreeable, the Skullcandy Indy Evo misses the mark with regards to detail. The soundstage additionally felt somewhat restricted and scarcely went past fundamental sound system partition. One of my preferred tracks to test detail and soundstage with is Love by Moullinex, and it just sounded somewhat plain, with these headphones not figuring out how to defeat the restricted capacities of the SBC codec.

A portion of the noteworthy exchange between the two channels that can be heard with more point by point earphones and headphones was missing on the Indy Evo the sound felt like it was originating from right on as opposed to reenacting a more extensive ‘phase’ of sorts. Despite the fact that there were events when detail had the option to push through, this was more to the credit of the chronicle itself, as opposed to the headphones.
For calls, the Skullcandy Indy Evo works fine and dandy. There are no extra highlights, for example, natural commotion abrogation, yet the aloof clamor separation and mouthpieces worked proficiently enough to guarantee great sound on the two closures of the call for me.
The Skullcandy Indy Evo is a totally normal pair of headphones. Indeed, the fit is superb, the controls are helpful, and the bass is tight, however these aren’t reasons that anybody would regularly pick a couple of genuine remote headphones over another for. Where it truly matters — that is, sound quality and highlights — the Indy Evo pretty much arrives at a state of adequacy, yet goes no further. You won’t be frustrated with these headphones, however you won’t be especially excited either.
The Skullcandy Indy Evo basically marks the fundamental boxes and doesn’t generally go past that, not at all like the magnificent Lypertek Tevi which remains our top pick for under Rs. 10,000. Consider the Skullcandy Indy Evo just in case you’re an aficionado of the brand, or organize a protected fit and styling regardless of anything else.
