Skullcandy has taken its Method earphones wireless. Part of the brand’s Sport Performance range of devices, the Method Wireless is a Bluetooth-enabled version of its bestselling Method set designed with sports and workout enthusiasts in mind.
Wireless technology in earphones and headphones has seen quality gradually improve while prices come down over the years. “Our research shows that while the benefits of wireless are most obvious in the application of sport, many consumers still use their day-to-day earbuds,” said Jeff Hutchings, Vice-President of Product at Skullcandy. “They report insufficient fit and durability, and as a result, are missing the potential for a better workout experience. Because music can fuel better performance and satisfaction, there’s a consumer need for stable, durable and comfortable wireless sport earbuds. Method Wireless delivers on these expectations.”
The Method Wireless earphones come equipped with a flexible and lightweight FlexSport collar. It enables a reduced part count in the earbuds, making them lightweight, stable and giving them a comfortable fit. Its DualLock technology provides the wearer with added stability and supports a comfortable noise-isolating fit for longer workouts. It also comes with Pureclean technology that’s blended into the eargel, keeping the buds clean. The Method Wireless comes in different colours and collar sizes, with a variant for women. It packs in up to eight hours of battery life, sweat resistance, a built-in microphone with call, track and volume controls.
The Method Wireless launches with brand ambassador PSG and Brazil defender Thiago Silva. Skullcandy has had a heavy push into the sports and active lifestyle consumer segments and the Method Wireless is part of this strategy. With its focus on sports, Skullcandy hopes to produce a line of products that enhance the most intense of workouts with great durability, stability and audio quality. The earbuds are constructed using sonically welded parts to keep out moisture such as sweat and rain and proprietary fit technologies help keep the earbuds securely in place regardless of your exertion.
The Skullcandy Method Wireless earphones are available for Dh259. You can find them at Virgin Megastores, Excite Electronic Stores and Jarir Bookstores.
