PARK CITY, Utah, Oct. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Skullcandy, Inc., (NASDAQ: SKUL) the original performance and lifestyle audio brand, is set to change consumer expectations of wireless audio style and fit with its latest innovative additions: Smokin' Buds™2 Wireless earbud and Uproar™ Wireless headphone available this fall nationwide. The Smokin' Buds™2 Wireless and Uproar™ Wireless join previously launched Hesh 2™ Wireless to complete Skullcandy's wireless assortment.
"As headphones have become part of the uniform of youth and our consumers every day gear, our approach to the wireless category as a whole has been to solve the problems of all day wearability and performance without sacrificing aesthetics," said Sam Paschel, Skullcandy Chief Commercial Officer. "We started with three products that would provide great style, comfort, and audio quality through Skullcandy Supreme Sound - and then took them a step further by adding wireless Bluetooth functionality."
The Smokin' Buds™2 Wireless are the most comfortable and convenient wireless earbuds on the market. Unlike other bulky and unflattering wireless earbud options, the Smokin' Buds™2 sets a new bar for performance and aesthetics by featuring a lightweight, low-profile and flexible around-the-neck collar that can be adjusted or removed entirely. The modular collar and ultra-low profile Bluetooth module create a variety of wear and use options for the consumer without compromising style. Bluetooth® functionality allows the user to take their playlist wherever they go, and the 6-hour battery life keeps their music going non-stop. Also featuring Skullcandy's Off-Axis™ tech, these buds provide a comfortable fit and noise-isolating seal for extra long listening sessions. Finally, the OnBoard™ Mic/Remote allows users to take or make calls, adjust volume, and change tracks on their device directly from the conveniently located remote.
Following the approach on the Smokin Buds™2 of setting a new bar for comfort, performance and aesthetics, Uproar™ Wireless stands apart from the rest of the category with lightweight design and ultra-comfortable fit. The Bluetooth® functionality and 10-hour battery life keep music playing non-stop, while the plush synthetic leather ear pillows and an extra padded headband are perfect for all-day wear. Uproar™ Wireless also features the OnBoard™ built-in microphone and remote, so users can take calls and manage their music on their device directly from the right ear cup. For these reasons and more, Uproar Wireless headphones are perfect for any listener or any budget.
Hesh 2™ Wireless completes the Skullcandy wireless family as the Bluetooth® version of the iconic Hesh 2™ headphone - a plush, synthetic leather over ear cushion style, with an ultra durable headband. The OnBoard™ microphone and remote allows the user to take calls, adjust volume and control their music wirelessly.
