While wireless earphones aren’t exactly new, we’re starting to see a trend where headphone makers are making “true” wireless headphones, meaning that these headphones don’t have any cable whatsoever connecting them to each other, much like the AirPods from Apple. Given that handset manufacturers are starting to ditch the headphone jack, it’s not surprising that we’re seeing a rise in popularity in such devices.
In fact headphone maker Skullcandy has decided to toss their hat into the ring and has announced their first “true” wireless headphones, the Push. These are a set of earbuds that are in the style of brands such as Apple, Bose, Bang & Olufsen, Nokia, and Sennheiser (just to name a few) that have been released in the past.
They are completely wireless and will offer up to six hours of playback before needing a recharge. As expected, they will come with a charging case that will juice the headphones back up to full for another six hours of listening. The earbuds also support basic controls so that you can adjust certain things without having to reach for your phone.
In terms of pricing, the Push are being sold for $130 as a Target exclusive until the end of 2018, after which they will be available from other retailers, including Skullcandy’s own website, for $160 starting from the 15th of January, 2019. That being said, it should be noted that the headphones aren’t IP rated which means that if you’re thinking about using them for the gym, you might want to try avoiding getting sweat into them.
