Skullcandy has updated its range of headphones with the Pit Viper version, which drinks from the ’90s design, with its neon, purse, and confetti motifs.

The starting point of this redesign is the Push Active, Dime or, in this case, the Peace model from Skullcandy. ie, wireless headphones with a charging case and the usual style of the brand, but raising crank dial —and tough, in the best sense of the word—by the 11th.
Thus, the Grind X Viper is in the mid-range of wireless without active sound cancellation, priced and features less than €100. Its sound is clear and without a lot of sharpness when we turn up the volume, though this is to be expected from the higher ranges.

The extra 31 provided by the cargo box gives a total of 40, even subtracting three or four—out of disbelief, Not because experience demands it – is above average.
However, the main argument for the Skullcandy x Pit Viper is its retro image. Because, effectively, we’re talking about designs from almost 30 years ago: As painful as they may be, they’re just as retro as they used to mimic the ’60s image. success And get a result that the photos of that time already want for themselves. It has personality and color without falling into sharpness. It may not be for everyone, but for whom it will feel crushing.

Overall, Skullcandy x Pit Vipers achieve what appears to be their goal: to be unforgettable. They’re not the best headphones, but they’re the best at what they do, which is, simply put, fun. They’ll pair with a phone and play Run the Jewels on Spotify, but they’re begging to flip the cassette. No problem on Walkman.
