If you thought noise-canceling wireless headphones were only good for those long haul flights, think again. With most millennials and Gen Zers struggling to find their own space within co-working environments, open offices, shared commutes, university dorms, shared apartments and road trips, you need them just about anywhere.
For the times we spend in shared traveling, living and work environments, Skullcandy has come up with its new noise-canceling wireless headphones – Venue. At the intersection of innovation and creative culture, this is the brand’s first foray into the premium segment, offering a fully immersive listening experience and discovery of sound in a whole new way.
As a brand, Skullcandy embodies independence, creativity and appeals to a youthful and adventurous audio consumer and has thrived at the intersection of music, technology and board sports by unleashing the visceral power of music for all. And Venue just takes the whole experience a giant step forward.
Venue is priced at INR 18,999 and comes in 2 colours – Black on Black and Crimson on White; with its own protective travel case. Considering their young cult-ish audience base, a few more colour options would be interesting to see.
The product is well designed, has a premium feel and offers good over-ear comfort with memory foam ear cushions. The audio experience is very good with premium acoustics and it comes with features such as fast charging (providing five hours of battery life with just a 10-minute charge) and the TILE technology to track your headphones. When you need to tap into the outside world, Monitor Mode pushes the music to the background and lets you hear your immediate surroundings with just a push of a button.
Venue is available for order online at Skullcandy.in, Brandeyes.in and in select retailers. With up to 24 hours of battery life and Bluetooth capability, Venue keeps the music going wherever it goes. So for that next road trip, Skullcandy Venue could well be a perfect travel companion.
