Design

If there’s one thing that makes you feel good about Skullcandy, they have sound expertise. 

The Skullcandy Grind Fuel looks elegant, with a nice little shape on the top of the case, which will appeal to perfectionists. The case is black in the version we received. We find the brand’s logo here in grey on the upper side.

We notice the USB-C port to charge the device quickly on the back of the box. As for the underside of the box, we notice a lightning logo to make it clear that the box is compatible with wireless charging.

The entire case is made of black ABS plastic. The disadvantage of ABS is that this plastic picks up a lot of fingerprints compared to PBT.

Before opening the case, let’s specify the rest of the bundle, namely tips of various sizes, allowing the headphones to be adapted to all ear shapes. A charging cable is also provided. However, this is relatively short, like many wireless headphones.

That said, let’s take a look inside the headphone case together. In the box, we find the headphones arranged to have the logos of each headset on each side. The inside of the box is made up of two colors. The first is an orange color, and of course, we find the black color of the case.

As for the headphones, they are placed horizontally. Below the headphones, 4 LEDs indicate the level of charge of the headphones.

The Skullcandy Grind Fuel are well finished and generally reflects the design of many headphones on the market. We can notice the brand logo on each of them, which is unusual and not very aesthetic, although the integration is correctly carried out.

Moreover, where the logo is located, there is a microphone on each earphone to make calls and use the noise reduction function.

The less visible part of the headphones is made of a matte black plastic of rather good quality overall. The headphones are very rounded, with some practically right angles. The set is rather aesthetic and is made of good quality materials; overall, the design is sober and quite well worked.

Sound quality

With around 100$, the Skullcandy Grind Fuel offers us a more than adequate sound. Certainly, the quality is not transcendent; however, the Skullcandy Grind Fuel largely do the job. Let’s say that for 100€ it’s more than adequate.

The bass does not take over; it is a point to argue because when it is often too present, it is to hide something bad. For midrange and treble, it is properly managed.

Overall these headphones are very good in all musical styles. Whether you listen to rock, jazz, rap or classical music, they are versatile and know how to adapt easily.

Microphone

As for the microphone quality, it is correct for Bluetooth headphones. The microphones allow you to communicate outside without worrying about ambient noise. However, it’s still Bluetooth headset microphones, so it’s naturally flat if the sound environment is too noisy.

Comfort

In terms of comfort, the Skullcandy Grind Fuel do very well at this level. The headphones fit very well in the ears even when running or shaking my head, even with me who has an ear morphology that doesn’t quite match the in-ear headphones.

They come with 3 different sizes of tips, S, M, and L, which is a good point. They are comfortable to wear and do not hurt the ears, even after a long time of listening. In addition, the different sizes of tips will adapt to almost all ear shapes.

Controls

The controls can be customised using the Skullcandy App,however the default settings are listed below.

Battery

The Skullcandy Grind Fuel announced a battery life of 9 hours per earphone at 50% of the maximum volume and 31 hours more with the case. The Skullcandy Grind Fuel more or less respects the manufacturer’s data. It depends on the sound level used.

The case is recharged in USB-C and offers a fast charge which allows obtaining 2 hours of battery life in 10 minutes of charge.

Conclusion!

The Skullcandy Grind Fuel are good Bluetooth headphones for everyday life and sports, whether semi-extreme or traditional. The comfort of these headphones is decent, and the sound quality is also pleasant. The battery life  is excellent and allows you to no longer worry about the remaining time, thanks to the fast recharge.
