Skullcandy Crusher ANC XT 2 - techbuzzireland

Skullcandy has just announced the release of their all new Crusher ANC 2 Headphones, the newest edition to the iconic Crusher Franchise. The headphones take Skullcandy’s patented Adjustable Sensory Bass to the next level  and we have tried and tested and you will love it and also comes with the addition of Active Noise Cancelling, upgradable features, hands-free voice control and more, all for an unbeatable price of $229.99 MSRP. With up to 60 hours of battery life, rapid charge technology and customizable EQ modes, these headphones are perfect for tech-savvy audiophiles who crave an immersive audio experience. And we have been testing these out for some time now and delighted to do so as I am a huge fan of the crusher range but not only that their other products too which you can find here on site and there is lots to pick from. 

The Crusher ANC 2 headphones have been designed to deliver personalised, customizable experiences for every listener, with Skull-iQ Smart Feature Technology, users are enabled to create and tune features to their unique hearing preferences. If you are a fan of bass there is no need to look anywhere else for bass driven headphones plus you can customise these to your own taste.  Lightweight and durable, these headphones boast design updates with comfort-ability in mind. Having tested these out long enough now I am the type that wears my headphones or earbuds for hours on end and these are super comfortable with no clamping effect or get sweaty either. 

Built with larger ear cups, an asymmetric yoke and a notch in the headband for improved comfort, ideal for all day wearing. The headphones are also flat-folding and collapsible, packaged in a durable travel case, making them perfect for on-the-go use. Again a carry case provided which will keep your headphones safe and away from dirt or dust and this is something instilled in me for many years now as I have a big range of headphones I use in a cycle over time and keep them protected and all look like new today even ones that are near ten years old. 

“This latest generation of Crusher gives fans the bass response they loved in its predecessors, with the added feature of Active Noise Cancelling,” said Jason Luthman, Director of Global Product Management.“We have been refining and improving the Crusher Technology for over a decade now, Crusher ANC 2 is our 7th iteration in the family. For those looking for a premium headphone, the all-new Crusher ANC 2 has it all and will no doubt deliver the world-class listening experience they crave, while layering on robust, in-demand features at a ridiculously good value.”

Skullcandy iQ app


Skullcandy developed a user experience centred around individual customization. Users can personalise the proprietary haptic bass one of three ways; rotating the adjustment wheel on the left ear cup, using the hands-free voice command “Hey Skullcandy, More Crusher,” or creating bass preferences directly on the Skull-iQ app. Adjustable four-mic Active Noise Cancelling not only detects and cancels noise but can now be customised and refined. Users can also set up a Personal Sound profile to tune Crusher ANC 2 to their unique hearing through a short hearing test on the app. We go through the app below and show you what is involved here and again the Skull iQ offer and experience to make life so handy for you without having to touch your phone or headphones when using it to do all the things you usually do with your headphones and more.
