The Skullcandy Sesh Evo succeeds its predecessor from 2019 – the ‘original’ Skullcandy Sesh. While there are a number of {hardware} and software program updates to the brand new mannequin, the general look has not modified. The new Sesh Evo, subsequently, appears to be like precisely just like its older sibling. As

anticipated
of an entry-level product, the Sesh Evo appears to be totally constructed of plastic – albeit of wonderful high quality. The charging case, whereas not probably the most ergonomic one to hold round, feels fairly properly constructed and has a pleasant ‘weight’ to it – including to the general really feel.

The robust magnet allows you to firmly shut the lid whereas additionally not being too agency that impedes the opening course of. The case additionally incorporates 4 small LEDs to point the charging standing.

The earbuds and the charging case appear to be manufactured from equivalent supplies, thereby giving a extra cohesive really feel to the whole setup. The earbuds themselves are fairly tiny and weigh subsequent to nothing. The Skullcandy brand takes delight of place on the perimeters of the earbuds (that additionally acts as a button for fast controls). The brand, nonetheless, was exhausting to identify on the ‘True Black’ color choice we obtained for evaluate. The product is accessible in two extra color variants: Peached Blue and Pure Mint. I might personally select the Black color variant simply due to its understated appears to be like. The different color choices will attraction to people preferring one thing flashier.

It did, nonetheless, took me some time to get them completely aligned with the contours of my ears.

As already outlined within the design and construct part, the whole flat exterior panel of Sesh Evo earbuds acts as a button.

An fascinating function addition to the Skullcandy Sesh Evo is assist for the Tile app. With this function, you possibly can simply search and find your earbuds in case you’ve gotten the tendency to misplace them. The Sesh Evo, maybe, is the one TWS to supply this function.

Calling and audio efficiency

I didn’t extensively use the Sesh Evo for calls, however the voice reception was respectable, and the individual on the different finish was in a position to hear me fairly properly. But the Sesh Evo actually isn’t the very best within the phase so far as name high quality goes.

This situation, nonetheless, isn’t unique to the

Sesh Evo
and plagues most different TWS.

Skullcandy merchandise are identified for providing tight, punchy bass, and the Sesh Evo actually delivers on this entrance. The tiny 6mm drivers do a commendable job at reproducing the decrease frequencies. However, the bass is overbearing at instances and even finally ends up affecting the mids. Certain tracks sound muddled. You can, nonetheless, use a graphic equalizer to rein issues in. The Sesh Evo additionally comes with its personal set of preset sound modes that may be invoked by urgent the button 4 instances. The three modes on provide are Podcast, Movie, and Music. For mellow tracks with emphasis on the mids and the highs, switching to the Podcast mode made a world of distinction.  

To consider the sound stage of the Sesh Evo, I performed my favourite observe, ‘Hunter’ by Bjorg. The peculiarity of this observe is the continual drum beats that ebb throughout the fitting and left channels by means of nearly the whole period of the track. The Sesh Evo did handle to breed the observe to my satisfaction. The soundstage may have been a bit wider – however I did perceive the constraints of a small TWS with a 6mm driver. Overall, the Sesh Evo does provide good efficiency for the cash you shell out for the product.

The Skullcandy Sesh Evo claims a battery lifetime of 24 hours – a big enchancment over its predecessor. Along with the charging case, the earbuds can simply final you every week with regular utilization. I took properly over two days to utterly exhaust the battery on the earbuds with 5 hours of intermittent utilization throughout the whole 48-hour period. The case could be simply charged in a single day utilizing any USB-C cable. No complaints general so far as the battery life on the Sesh Evo is anxious.
