What is it?

A pair of Bluetooth wireless earbuds from Skullcandy.

Good Points?

Slick design and user-friendly operation give the Push earbuds a dependable foundation. The elongated panel on each bud holds a large control button for ease of use and a substantial battery.

Six hours of life are given from the ear-piece batteries and a further six hours from the charging case which is more than enough to see you through most situations.

The buds are held securely with the aid of FitFin Gels technology which do a great job of minimising movement during physical activities.

Controlling the system is quick and simple thanks to the large buttons on the sides. You can just press without having to fumble for multiple control buttons.

You can manipulate a raft of features including activating your smartphone assistant, track skipping, volume and voice calling controls.

Bad points?

Skipping back a track involves holding the left-ear button down for three seconds. This seems like a neat system to reduce buttons and surface area but in practice falls a little short particularly when using services like Apple Music.

Three seconds is too long and instead of skipping back, the long press results in the current song being restarted.

The audio beep notifying you of the three seconds is also too quiet to distinguish over loud music.

Best for ...

Those who want a pair of great sounding earphones that are easy to operate even with a pair of woolly gloves on.

Avoid if ...

You are an Apple Music user who regularly skips back tracks.

Score: 8/10.
