Everyone knows about the Apple AirPods that were announced back in 2016. But, there are many other truly wireless earbuds out there, and many are much better quality. Today I am going to be talking about Skybuds.
When you open the box, you see the Skybuds, the Skydock, your charging cable, and a few different tip sizes. Skybuds come in 3 different colors, white, black, and silver. Since the Skybuds are truly wireless, meaning they have no wire whatsoever, they must be charged inside a special dock. That is where the Skydock comes in, when you want to charge the earbuds you place them inside of the dock, and then plug the dock in using a micro USB cable. But this is where it gets good, you get about 4 hours of playtime with the earbuds themselves, but the Skydock acts as a battery pack for the Skybuds supplying them with an extra 24 hours of battery life when they are inside the dock, unplugged.
According to the website, Skybuds are sweat proof and water-resistant, so that’s a plus. Another great feature… awareness. Awareness allows you to hear your surroundings by clicking a button on your Skybuds. The music will continue playing but you will be able to hear everyone and everything around you. You can, of course, turn it off at any time through the app or on the Skybuds directly.
Oh yeah, the app, yet another amazing feature. You can download the app on your IOS or Android device for free of charge. It will let you control the volume, toggle awareness, view the battery left on not just the Skybuds but also the Skydock, and it will help you find the SkyBuds if they get lost. Right now, if you lose a Skybud, or the Skydock, it will tell you how close you are to it making it easier to find. They are planning to add a map to the application so that you know the exact location of the Skybuds.
But none of these cool features would matter if they sound terrible, right? The earbuds sound great! They have great sound quality, the only downside is the volume. It doesn’t get as loud as some might like, but it is just fine for me.
Now, for some the deciding factor, the price. Skybuds cost $220, and yes that is a lot. But is it worth it? Definitely! Skybuds, which are $61 dollars more than Apple Airpods, have great sound quality, have a well thought out design, and have a great app to go along with them.
