Skullcandy was born out of a problem, the founder, Rick Alden was riding a chairlift in Utah. He was listening to music but needed to take a call. At the time, the technology forced him to have to switch from his music player to his phone. Thus, he decided he would start a company that would not only make better headphones but also fit his snowboarding lifestyle. Skullcandy then became the original audio lifestyle brand.
The Push Ultra Over the Ear True Wireless Earbuds have up to 6 hours of playtime (and 34 more in the case). They also have Moldable ear hooks provide a personal, comfortable and unshakable fit, while the unique design of the earbuds lets you hear more of your surroundings when you need to.

I hope this article helps you to find some new and alternative brands to buy innovative and affordable headphones from, you do not need to always go for the market leaders to get the best products! My top pick from these brands is definitely Urbanista, they have changed the headphone game for me! They will never leave my handbag, by my side everywhere I will go. There is now no need for those restrictive and outdated wired headphones, as these headphones are the new music future! They are very easy to use, to charge (wireless charging compatible) and only need a USB-C type charger (which conveniently happened to be the same charger I currently use for my MackBook Air & Samsung A8 mobile phone, so one less cable to care about)...
This was a big plus for me.
So, bye for now and happy listening!!!
