Not long ago Skullcandy announced some cool new earbuds to their portfolio and they were the Skullcandy Smokin and Skullcandy Rail earbuds and we have a pair of each in to test over the next few week, Affordable in price the latest on offer again has all the features you need to go about your day whilst listening to your music and more.

The Skullcandy Smokin buds are the cheapest on offer and when I say cheap I have tested other models before and they sounded great for the price so there is not much to complain about here. The environmentally-conscious earbuds are made with 50% certified recycled plastics. Smokin Buds are equipped with a comfortable and ergonomic design, which guarantees ideal fit, appearance, and noise isolation, all wrapped up in a sleek package.

We will have a review soon so if you have any questions feel free to ask in the interim.

These are the more feature packed earbuds and come in an ANC model two so you have choice, either way with the Skull IQ smart feature which if you have not tested is great you can find out how this works by looking back at our reviews and see how easy it makes life for the user. Again a small pair of earbuds with a small stem which I prefer these will sit nicely in your ears and allow you to get on with your day again with features packed in to make life easier, you also have multipoint pairing here which I also love to see and you get personal sound by Mimi.
