NEWS – Skullcandy has always been known for making budget, hip-looking earbuds and headphones that were more about style than sound quality. That is up until now. With their new cans, Venue, Skullcandy has stepped up their game to challenge the big boys.
The Venue noise-canceling headphones have plenty of cool features. Aside from Active Noise Cancellation they also offer 24 hours of battery life with Rapid Charge. Using Rapid Charge allows you to get 5 – hours of listening time from just a 10-minute charge.
Monitor mode allows you to easily turn off the noise cancellation feature so you can clearly hear the outside world.
Venue also has an impressive Bluetooth range that allows you to listen to your content from up to 100 feet away.
But, perhaps the most impressive feature is Find Your Headphones. For this feature, Skullcandy partnered up with Tile to embed tracking exclusively into the Venue headphones. So if you ever lose them, you can just use the Tile app to locate where you last left them.
Aesthetically the headphones have pivoting ear cups, plush memory foam ear cushions, and two color choices, Black or White/Crimson.
All these great features come at a price that’s considerably lower, $179.99, than similar headphones from companies like Bose and Sony. And the Venue headphones still have a little of that Skullcandy style.
