Skullcandy Indy True Wireless Earbuds may look like Apple Airpods on steroids, but only in look. Featuring crisp highs and warm lows without distortion, IP55 Sweat, Water and Dust Resistant, and touch gesture controls.
The design choice is to stabilize the earbud in your ear. The included tips off a secure fit, while keeping out a lot of sounds. This allowed me to keep them relatively low volume, as highs were rather rattly. The Indy case is small and compact. Also, it fits perfectly in a pocket. The included buds allowed me to find the best fit, while also keeping out the most amount of noise.

The case and earbuds hold around 16 hours of battery life. You can only use the right earbud by itself, which I felt was an odd thing to go with. If you pack away the right earbud, the left will power off.
Controls are based on gesture controls. This is using the touch-sensitive panel on the top of each earbud. A double-tap will skip a track, as well as accept/end calls. This is on both earbuds. A long-press on the left earbud pauses/plays music, with the right activating the assistant. A great feature is sliding up and down to increase or decrease the volume. It’s a very natural motion and works well.
Music sounds OK, with the volume on high you will start to notice a lot of interference. While call quality is good, but forget it when in direct wind.
If you are after an Air Pod clone, with more features, then I would suggest these. They come in a couple of different colours and are pretty cool. Finally, check out our other audio reviews.
