SKULLCANDY EXPANDS PREMIUM HEADPHONE PRODUCT LINE WITH IMMERSIVE TECHNOLOGIES: VENUE AND LIMITED-EDITION CRUSHER 360
PARK CITY, Utah, August 22, 2018 – Skullcandy, Inc., the performance and lifestyle audio brand founded at the intersection of innovation and creative culture, announced two new headphones – Venue – available for pre-order now at Skullcandy.com and the limited-edition Crusher 360. While utilizing two completely different technologies, these innovative products both offer fully immersive listening experiences that allow the user to discover their audio in a whole new way.
"Skullcandy is an iconic audio brand that embodies independence, creativity and appeals to our youthful and adventurous audio consumer," said Jason Hodell, CEO of Skullcandy. "For 15 years, Skullcandy has thrived at the intersection of music, technology and boardsports by unleashing the visceral power of music for all. With Crusher 360 and Venue, we're continuing our vision of delivering incredible immersive audio experiences."
While most noise-canceling products are only seen in the business class section of an airplane, Skullcandy's newest wireless headphone, Venue, offers a noise-canceling experience designed for everyone — co-workers, roommates and commuters struggling to find their own space in shared working, living and traveling environments. Venue's active noise canceling (ANC) technology is designed to deliver powerful ANC performance at an affordable price so that Skullcandy's consumer can tune into what matters most to them: music they can feel. When users do need to tap into the outside world, Monitor Mode easily lets them hear their surroundings with just a push of a button. Venue is also equipped with Rapid Charge technology, providing five hours of battery life with just a 10 minute charge. In partnership with Tile, Venue can be tracked using the Tile app on a mobile device to ensure the headphones are never misplaced. With up to 24 hours of battery life, Bluetooth® capability and a premium travel case, Venue keeps the music going wherever it's taken. Venue is available for pre-order in Black and White colorways for $179.99.
Following the hugely successful Crusher Wireless franchise launch in October 2016, Skullcandy unveils the next generation of this immersive technology with Crusher 360. This ultra-realistic audio experience is proprietary to Skullcandy, and offers an adjustable sensory bass that users can not only hear, but also feel. Crusher 360 offers a variety of advancements from its predecessor: premium materialization, broadened haptic bass response, digital signal processing and capacitive touch controls. With up to 30 hours of battery life, Bluetooth® capability and a premium travel case, the Crusher experience can be taken on-the-go. Crusher 360 will be available for purchase exclusively at Best Buy and Skullcandy.com in Black/Tan and Black/Black colorways for $299.99.
Venue is available now for pre-order online at Skullcandy.com and Crusher 360 will be available for pre-order on September 5and in select retailers on September 20.
