My initial impression of the new Skullcandy Venue Noise Canceling Wireless is favorable. I have not given the headphones the full test yet, this is a first impression. The finish feels premium, snug fit, a bit weighty but not uncomfortable. On the design side, no logo overbranding on the side of the ear pads.
The over ear headphones are simple to use. The headphone controls are located on side of the ear cups, the right side for volume control, the left side on/off control for the active noise button.
The specs are 24 hour battery time with rapid charging technology, five minute charge enables 5 hour battery life.
I tried the ANC features in the sound booth, a complete blackout of all outside noises with good sound quality.
Skullcandy has a reputation of being affordable, streetwise brand moving into the higher end headphone market occupied by many competitiors.
I am looking forward to trying out the new Skullcandy Headphones.
Retail price is 179.00 euros.
