Skullcandy Unveils New Wireless Earbuds with Skull-iQ Tech

The latest true wireless earbuds include voice commands and more

Skullcandy has revealed two new sets of true wireless earbuds, both of which are equipped with its new Skull-iQ smart feature technology.

On Tuesday, Skullcandy unveiled the Grind Fuel and Push Active, two new true wireless earbud sets that will join its already available lineup. What sets the Grind Fuel and Push Active apart from Skullcandy’s previous earbuds, however, is the company's new Skull-iQ smart feature technology.

Users can now take advantage of voice commands when wearing the earbuds by saying, “Hey Skullcandy.” They can then give commands to play or pause media, accept or reject incoming phone calls, and even turn on safety modes like Stay-Aware Mode.

Additionally, Skull-iQ opens the door for Spotify Tap access, allowing users to control Spotify directly with their voice. It’s the first partnership between an audio accessory company and Spotify of this nature and should make it easier for users to navigate Spotify using their voice. 

Finally, another significant component of the Skull-iQ feature is over-the-air updates. This will allow the company to provide software updates for its earbuds in the future, allowing for improvements, advancements, and new features to be added after release.

The Skullcandy Grind Fuel and Push Active are available starting September 28 and will retail for $99.99 and $79.99, respectively.

Both sets of earbuds offer true wireless via Bluetooth 5.2, as well as over 40 hours of battery life when using the charging case. You also can keep track of where your earbuds are at all times using the built-in Tile finding technology with the Tile app.
