Skullcandy announces its next generation of wireless audio

Skullcandy has been a longtime player in audio accessories. The company has just announced its latest generation of wireless earbuds with a laundry list of new features. This includes two new wireless earbuds and a new suite of tech from Skullcandy.

Say hello to Skull-IQ

The premier feature of both of these devices is Skull-IQ. This new hands-free technology allows you to interact with your headphones via voice only. Think of it as a mini-Google Assistant built into the Skullcandy earbuds.

This AI tech includes helpful voice commands to control volume, moving tracks, and calling your contacts. Using the hotword phrase of “Hey Skullcandy” you can then use the acceptable commands to follow like: “volume up” “volume down” or “call Mom”.

Skull-IQ is also the first device to have Spotify Tap. This new software integration from Spotify allows you to use similar voice combinations to launch your favorite playlist, podcast, or artist directly from the earbuds.

Grind Fuel

You can’t have a new tech without great hardware to pair it with. The Grind Fuel aims to bring you that with a premium listening experience for $100. Skullcandy packed these new earbuds with a very compelling list of specifications.

  • Skull-iQ Smart Feature Technology – Issue simple, hands-free voice commands to take calls, change tracks, adjust volume, turn on Stay-Aware Mode, activate device assistant, launch Spotify Tap, and more
