Listen to this article

Brief Intro/Description

Available in some eye-catching colors, the Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless In-Ear Earbuds are very budget-friendly and feature a well-thought-out design. Let’s jump into the review.

Design & Comfort

Both the Skullcandy Sesh wireless earbuds and their charging case have an attractive design. The form factor of these wireless earbuds is pretty good, they are lightweight and sit comfortably inside the ear without causing any stress after prolonged use and do not stick out a lot. The extra ear tips in the box help with choosing the ideal fit. The charging case has nice aesthetics, it has a magnetic clasp to ensure that the lid shuts securely and will not open easily. The earbuds are also pulled in place by strong magnets and the case has a better design compared to the Skullcandy Indy Wireless Earbuds. Available in the following colors: Black, Indigo, Deep Red.

Charging Case

The charging case of the Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds features a bar of LED lights for charge status that is turned on by a button next to the lights. Furthermore, you see the Skullcandy branding on the charging case lid. The pocketability of this charging case is not the best as it is tall and a little bulky. It can fit in your bag or something but for sure not in your pocket.

The battery life is inadequate and the earbuds only offer 3 hours worth of playtime while the charging case can give an added 7 hours, making the total battery life up to just 10 hours. The short battery life does not make them suitable for prolonged use so these wireless earbuds are best for use during workouts or short journeys.

Sound Quality

You get a lot of clarity and balanced sound quality with these wireless earbuds. They absolutely pack a punch when it comes to bass and provide excellent vocals as well as offer loud volume.

Call Quality

The microphone quality is not too strong though the person on the other side can hear you but not as loud or very clearly.

Listen to the microphone test done by Brian Unboxed here:

Bluetooth

These wireless earbuds have Bluetooth 5.0 and they pair pretty quickly. Taking them out of the case will set them into pairing mode. The audio delay is little to none.

According to the Skullcandy website, the Bluetooth range of the Skullcandy Sesh earbuds is up to 30+ feet. Although, you may still experience some disconnections.

Control Features

The Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds come with physical buttons instead of touch-sensitive controls and they have the Skullcandy branding on them. Pressing the buttons can shove the buds even further into the ear which can cause some discomfort.

A single press on any one of the earbuds will play/pause music, double press the right earbud to increase the volume, and double press the left earbud to decrease it. Press thrice on any of the earbuds to activate voice-assistant, one press on any one of the earbuds to answer a call or hang up, etc. 

Water Resistance

The Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds have IP55 which means they can withstand sweat and are water-resistant as well as dust-resistant. So, a little bit of rain or sweat will not damage these, making them ideal for use in the gym.

Brand Credibility

Skullcandy’s brand credibility is unchanged since our last review of their Indy True Wireless Earbuds:

Skullcandy is a popular Utah-based brand, known for its audio products. Its website is stocked with a massive amount of products ranging from headphones, wireless earbuds to even some neat accessories like cases and stuff.

Quality & Materials Used

The Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds are made of plastic and both have a matte finish to them. The earbuds feel very lightweight and good quality. However, the charging case seems cheaply made despite the very sleek design.

Price

At the time of this review, the Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds are sold at $29.99.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • The Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds are easy on the pocket.
  • These wireless earbuds feature Bluetooth 5.0.
  • They are water-resistant as well as sweat and dust-resistant.
  • These earbuds also come with multiple silicone ear tips so that you can customize your fit.
  • Feel very comfortable and light when in the ears.
  • The charging case has LED lights for battery life status.
  • These earbuds feature physical buttons instead of touch-sensitive controls, so no unintentional taps while adjusting the earbuds.
  • They provide some amount of noise isolation.
  • Nicely designed buds and case.
  • They come in a range of very attractive colors.
  • You can control the volume from the earbuds.
  • The left earbud can be used alone (mono mode) since it is the main earbud.

Cons

  • The Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds have a very short battery life.
  • They have  Micro-USB charging.
  • The charging case is kind of boxy and not really easily transportable.
  • The case also does not feel very sturdy and high quality.
  • No Active Noise Cancellation. 

Final Verdict

A ton of volume with a good deal of bass and add to this the comfortable fit, noise isolation, water-resistance as well as a cheap price tag are what the Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds have to offer. However, the immensely below-average battery life cannot be overlooked and are a total let-down.
