Skullcandy has announced the latest addition to the Crusher series of personal audio products. The Evo headphones are equipped with Haptic Bass, which reinforces this range with physical feedback. They also offer the option of building an Audiododo personalized audio profile, which may tailor the headphones' sound delivery to each individual user.

Skullcandy has unveiled the Crusher Evo headphones. This new audio accessory has the Haptic Bass feature that defines its sub-brand, in that it enhances bass through the sensory feedback in question. Its latest manifestation are Bluetooth hearables, although they also come with an auxiliary cable for wired listening under certain circumstances (plane journeys (in the future, perhaps), for example).

The new Crushers also have a stand-out feature of their own: Audiodo Personal Sound. This is a service provided by the Swedish company of this name in which aural hardware is adjusted based on a short audio test. This is administered via the Skullcandy app, and may optimize sound on a user-by-user basis thereafter.

The Crusher Evos are rated for 40 hours of battery life and come with USB type C quick-charging. They have a flat-folding and fold-away design that also incorporates Tile device-locating technology.

Skullcandy makes no mention of specs such as active noise-cancelling (ANC) here, although these headphones are clearly more about immersion and sound quality (on paper, at least).

The Crusher Evo headphones come in Chill Gray or True Black colorways, and are available from now on the OEM's website at a price of US$199.99.
