Skullcandy Dime TWS earbuds Review: With the huge surge in demand for affordable True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earbuds globally and especially in India, the US-based audio equipment major Skullcandy recently launched budget Dime True Wireless (TWS) earbuds in the country. The company aims to target budget audio segments here. In fact, according to Liz Lee, Senior Analyst, Counterpoint Research, Skullcandy is now a notable brand with growth potential across low- to mid-end TWS wearable. The brand is now expanding its market, especially in the sub-$100 segment in the US, through favorable responses for new budget models such as the Dime and Dime XT.

Priced at Rs 2399, the Skullcandy Dime is available in three colors Dark Blue/Green, Dark Grey and True Black. We reviewed the True Balck color variant of Skullcandy Dime and Here's what I have to say about the TWS earbuds. The earbuds design is premium and looks perfect on the ears.  The Skullcandy Dime has all the hardware to outclass its nearest competitors in the affordable category - boAt, LAVA, Dizo and Noise. Skullcandy Dime earbuds are made from plastic and rubber with a matching plastic charging case. I liked the unique design and honestly, the earbuds are extremely lightweight and comfortable to use. (even during workout sessions)

The Skullcandy Dime case itself is small, weighing just 32 grams. The case has a handle to clip it to your keys. Skullcandy's new Dime is an ideal, everyday audio companion that boasts up to 12 hours of battery life. When earbuds are removed from the charging case secured with a snap lid, the buds automatically turn on. Intuitive, touch-enabled media controls on the compact stick-style buds enable you to effortlessly take calls, change tracks, adjust volume and activate native voice assistants like Google and Siri, all without ever reaching for their devices. The Skullcandy Dime uses Bluetooth 5.0 to connect to a smart device.

The Skullcandy Dime earbuds are IPX4 sweat and water-resistant. To control the music, there are buttons integrated into the rubber stem. You can pause or play the music.  While taking calls, attending video calls or listening to music for long hours and playing games such as Battlegrounds Mobile India and Garena Free Fire, we did not feel any discomfort even after using these for long hours. Skullcandy Dime earbuds offer 3.5 hours of music from a single charge and up to 12 hours of the total battery. The earbuds didn't provide a good day-long total battery life but it also didn't take much to get fully charged. The earbuds delivered good and deeper bass and gave a continuous music playback for about three hours without any disturbance. To recharge the Skullcandy Dime earbuds, there’s a small Mini USB cable in the box.
