Skullcandy Rail - techbuzzireland

The latest earbuds have dropped from Skullcandy and once again well priced and great earbuds, the latest on offer is the all new RAIL and SMOKIN BUDS  and first up we check out the RAIL which are the non ANC version and having said that they have NO ANC does it matter, in short no because once these are tuned up to the max you cant hear what is going on outside anyway. Trust me, these are loud and how I like it

The design is familiar with small stems however we can see inside these at the top which is cool, and being able to see inside our tech is now becoming a bit of a trend these days and perhaps later down the road Skullcandy might give us a totally transparent pair and that would be extra cool if they did but for now we have these to poke our eyes into for now.

Comfort and fit is also fine here and sit well in the ears and look clean and will not budge and after wearing them for some time now out cycling and in the gym they have now budged and stay well put as they say, the right tips though is the key here and once applied they block out much of the outside world which is fine.

Controls work well as expected from the company and always have been consistent with their products we go through all these in the video review below so do check it out and the app which is up next. We once again have access to their fantastic app that allows you to change commands and more by just calling out “Hey Skulklcandy” – insert command here..  And as reviewed before this is an excellent feature and we have covered it in depth before but go over it again for newcomers to the channel and anyone looking for something new, it is a superb feature and you can even take photos by using this app which is Skull IQ.

The app is full of features as you would expect and you can change the controls to suit your needs, the you are best off doing the sound test to get the most out of your earbuds and using personal sound by Mimi and once complete you can later do it again if you wish over time on your profile.

As mentioned you can change the buttons features you have sound aware you have multipoint pairing and EQs built in and you can create your own, the volume is loud crisp and clear and calls also excellent too, when it comes to the audio though is where it is at nice bass highs lows and mids no lag latency no distortion when maxed out either and this is where many earbuds fail when turned up the max in some genres, You have spotify on tap however I you use YouTube music.

Overall these are a super pair of earbuds but have NO ANC so one can only imagine what they are like, with all the features packed in here and decent battery life and the price these come in at they are certainly earbuds to put on your list to check out.Check out the video review for more on the latest from Skullcandy.
