Skullcandy Budget Friendly Alternatives: Apple’s AirPods Pro, known for their exceptional in-ear wireless audio and active noise cancellation, come at a premium price of $399. However, for those seeking a more budget-friendly option in Australia, Skullcandy presents the Rail ANC and Rail True Wireless Earbuds, both priced at under $230.
The Skullcandy Rail ANC stands out as a formidable competitor to the AirPods Pro. Equipped with four-microphone ANC technology, it offers adjustable noise cancellation to block out unwanted distractions. For a more cost-effective choice, the Skullcandy Rail True Wireless Earbuds deliver a similar experience without ANC while still offering a range of features.
Both sets of earbuds prioritize ergonomic design and seamlessly pair with the Skull-iQ app, providing hands-free control through voice commands. These devices feature Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, allowing simultaneous connections to two devices, making them platform agnostic.
When it comes to battery life, Skullcandy’s Rail headphones hold their own. The ANC model boasts up to 38 hours of playback (when ANC is turned off), with an additional 10 hours from the earbuds and 28 hours from the charging case, which supports wireless charging. Opting for the base Rail model sacrifices wireless charging but extends battery life to an impressive 42 hours.
These earbuds are designed to keep up with your active lifestyle, boasting an IP55 rating, which means they are resistant to sweat, water, and dust. While they can handle splashes, it’s essential to note that they are not suitable for swimming.
If you’re looking for a more affordable alternative to high-end in-ear wireless headphones, Skullcandy’s Rail ANC and Rail True Wireless Earbuds offer compelling choices without breaking the bank.
