Skullcandy is continuing its trend of inexpensive, feature-rich earbuds with its latest offering, the Mod earbuds. All of the standard fare is present here. The Mods have a feature that lets you connect and listen to multiple devices at the same time. This isn't a new feature to earbuds in general, but when they only cost $60, it's definitely worthy of attention.

You can have them in any color as long as it’s black.

Wireless earbuds have become the standard for answering calls, jamming out, or accessing voice assistants, which is why it is so common to see prices in excess of $100. It is possible to shell out as much as $249.99 for the Apple AirPods Pro. There are plenty of budget-friendly options on the market, but few can compete with the features offered by more expensive models. Skullcandy is shaking up that notion by offering a bunch of features in a pair of earbuds that are remarkably inexpensive. If you misplace your Skullcandy earbuds, you can use an app to find them.

The Mods also come packaged with a variety of ear tips to ensure a comfortable fit.

Skullcandy has a reputation for producing products with loud and outrageous designs, but the Mod earbuds are offensive in terms of their look and style. They are only available in black and don't change from what you would expect from a pair of earbuds.

Multipoint Bluetooth connections have become an important feature because of our tendency to use our wireless earbuds for a variety of tasks. The feature allows your earbuds to remain connected to multiple devices at the same time. For instance, if you pair your laptop and phone at the same time, you can receive calls from your phone and have your earbuds drop the audio from your laptop when you pick up the phone.

The Mods can last for up to seven hours on a single charge with an additional 27 hours stored in the case. The mics used by the Mods are able to reduce background noise. You'll be able to use the Skullcandy app or the touch controls built into the earbuds to hear through them. The Mods aren't blowing anyone away in terms of their features or curb appeal, but their low price point is enough to get the attention of the more budget-conscious among us.
