10 July 2013 – First unveiled at the 2013 CES show in Las Vegas, the Crusher, from Skullcandy made its debut in Singapore.
Completely redesigned and re-engineered, the Crusher offers a unique bass sensory experience derived from “dual driver” technology. Powered Sensation55™ drivers housed in each earcup deliver Attacking Bass while Supreme Sound is supplied via separate custom REX40™ drivers designed exclusively by Skullcandy to fit the specs of this innovative new headphone. The proprietary Sensation55™ drivers provide more than bass you can hear; they deliver bass you can feel.
The Crusher is designed with premium materials and is engineered to emphasize fit, comfort and durability. The headphone features a flexible headband, an amplifier and battery in the earcup to drive the level-adjustable subwoofer, removable/replaceable cables and collapsible earcups for easy stashing with satin travel bag. The Crusher is also equipped with an auto on/off smart circuit that senses when music has stopped playing and turns off the amp automatically. This greatly improves battery life and removes the need for a power switch.
“The Crusher offers a truly unmatched audio experience that you can feel from the moment you put it on,” said Jeremy Andrus, President and CEO of Skullcandy.
“The feeling generated from this headphone replicates a live concert. Crusher’s technologies like the custom Sensation 55™ and REX40™ drivers deliver undistorted, pure sound packed in a durable design construction with a look and fit that’s unmistakably Skullcandy and a price that’s completely obtainable. You really have to feel it to believe it.”
Based on reviews / feedback on Skullcandy Crusher’s page, it’s recommended / close to highly recommended as dj quality type headphones.
