Skullcandy Sesh Evo vs Indy Evo earbuds
Share this Glamtech:

Wireless earphones come in different shapes and sizes, but when it comes to the specifications things can sometimes get blurry. A lot of times it’s not exactly clear what the differences are and that even happens with earbuds from the same brand. The Skullcandy Sesh Evo and Indy Evo for example seem very similar. So what’s the difference and which one is better? Check out this review to find out.

Is it all the same?

The Skullcandy Sesh Evo and Indy Evo have a lot of similar specifications. Both come with an IP55 certification, which means the earbuds are sweat, water and dust resistant. They also support rapid charging, which gives you 10 hours of listening time in exchange for 2 hours of charging. Another thing they share is the included Tile Finding technology. You can use this to find the buds with your phone if you misplace them. And we all do at some point, so that’s quite handy. Other specifications that are the same are the frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 KHz and the fact that you can also use the buds on their own, without missing half of your music.

Differences Skullcandy Sesh Evo and Indy Evo

But of course Skullcandy didn’t actually make two products that are exactly the same. An obvious difference is the way they look. The Sesh Evo has a rounded body, whereas the Indy Evo comes with the well known “stick” design. They also fit your ears differently and we personally prefer the fit of the Skullcandy Indy Evo. The earbuds have an added protrusion on top as an extra measure to keep them in place.

Another difference is the audio quality. The Indy Evo is a bit pricier, but also offers slightly fuller and richer sound. Skullcandy also chose for different buttons on the buds to control the playback and other functionality. On the Sesh Evo you’ll find actual buttons you can press, while the Indy Evo is outfitted with capacitive buttons. And last but not least, if you need earphones with an ambient mode the Indy Evo is your friend.

As mentioned there is a difference in price, as the Indy Evo seems to be the more premium choice. At the moment you can get the Skullcandy Sesh Evo for 59.99 USD, while you’ll have to dish up an extra 20 bucks for the Skullcandy Indy Evo.

But then again you might just want a good old headphones instead. Check out our review about the Skullcandy Crusher Evo headphones to find out why they’re called the king of bass.
