Skullcandy Uproar Wireless are wireless headphones by Skullcandy, and available from £24.24-£50.98 on Amazon, $63 and €56. Their colours include white, grey and red; street, grey fade and heather; red and black; blue and cream; black and grey; and black. In this blog, I will be reviewing the white, grey and red ones.
The box that they come in has the word Uproar on the side of it, with a picture of the headphones on front, some more pictures at the side, and some more information _ available in English, Spanish and French _ at the back, along with a diagram showing what each button is for. So what comes inside the box?
Inside the box you get the headphones, a charger to charge them with, and a set up guide. To set them up. you just have to hold down the round, red, microphone button at the side of them, but depending on when or on what device you use them, you might have to do this for a long time as a short press could result in a call to emergency services, while a long press connects or disconnects. Pressing the buttons is even easy for me to do as a paralysed person, as the following image shows with me pressing it with a chopstick.
To say you’ve disconnected the headphones will let out a small tune, and to let you know it’s connected it follows that tune with a few buzzes. If you are using them with a phone or tablet, it beeps to tell you when your volume is completely up, but the same doesn’t happen on any computer or laptop. They also come with 10 hours battery life, allowing them to be used for all-day activities. The same tune that tells you they’ve disconnected is also the tune that tells you if they’ve ran out of charge.
So what do I think of the Skullcandy Uproar Wireless Over-Ear Headphones over all? When I first tried them, I was absolutely blown away, not only by how clearly I can hear whatever music, audiobook, or news programme I am listening to, but also by how loudly I could hear myself type when on my phone or iPad. I originally bought them so I could play games or record tunes without disturbing anyone on my new iPad Pro _ which doesn’t have a headphone jack but I will review later _ but thanks to how comfortable they are and how clear the volume is, they are my every day headphone which I use alongside my black, wired Skullcandy headphones. I also like how useful its alert sounds are.
Judging the sound, how comfortable it is and its accessibility to me as a disabled person, I will give Skullcandy Uproar Wireless 5 stars.
