Skullcandy Indy Evo Earbuds Review: A High End Earbud At A Mid-Range Price?

Let’s be honest: the wireless earbud market has reached total saturation.

That doesn’t mean there’s a perfect earbud out there. There are just a lot of them to choose from.

Skullcandy’s newest offering to the audio market is the Indy Evo True Wireless In-Ear headphone. The Indy Evo is the more streamlined, lightweight, and better-fitting audio solution in the Indy range—so let’s see how they are standing up to the competition.

Skullcandy Indy Evo: The Pros

  • Improved fit thanks to streamlined bud size
  • Simple pairing with mobile devices via Bluetooth 5.0
  • Excellent sound quality and solid isolation for a crisp, true audio experience
  • Fast setup using either one earbud (either one!) or both
  • Reliable, clear microphone for taking phone calls on the go
  • Tile technology allows you to find your earbuds quickly and easily. Thankfully, Skullcandy had the foresight to make both earbuds individually traceable, so it’s a genuinely useful feature.
  • 30+ hour battery life

Skullcandy Indy Evo: The Cons

  • Plastic build
  • Logo-heavy design doesn’t suit a minimalist aesthetic like more premium brands
  • Re-pairing or pairing to new devices can be complicated

Final Verdict

Skullcandy’s Indy Evo sits comfortably in the middle of its price bracket. Aesthetically, it’s a smaller, more streamlined pod headphone, but the sleek design is let down slightly by the all-plastic build and heavy-handed branding.

Overall, though, they hold their own in every category and we’ve got to give a special mention for the Tile functionality, water resistance, and stable fit.
