Noise-cancellation for everyone

from Deccan Chronicle

The Skullcandy Venue is priced in India at Rs 18,999 and for the most part, these are solid performers.

The Skullcandy Venue is priced in India at Rs 18,999 and for the most part, these are solid performers. With ANC turned on, the audio quality will be a treat and we definitely enjoyed the overall audio quality. The asking price for the Venue is a bit steep, especially considering the issue with the ANC. However, what makes up for the wanna-have headphones are its overall ANC performance, quick charge, long-running hours, comfort wear and Tile support.

Never lose your headphones again

from Expert Reviews

All in all, £150 is pretty reasonable for the Skullcandy Venue headphones. Features wise, they have pretty much everything you could look for in a set of wireless headphones. They look the part, have solid noise cancellation, strong battery life and the Tile technology provides way more peace of mind than you usually get with headphones.

You wouldn’t want to lose these headphones, and you can’t

from News18

Would you spend Rs18,999 on a Skullcandy Venue headphone? Competition is tough.

Would you spend Rs18,999 on a Skullcandy Venue headphone? Competition is tough. There are the neutral sounding Sennheiser headphones, the bass focused Sony headphones and the noise cancellation capabilities that Bose and Marshall do very well with. What the Venue certain is, is that it is a fine headphone. And it is doing a lot of things well. But let us just say that this is the first step in a new journey for Skullcandy, and it is a great start. The sound isn’t for purists, but if your music library is more about up-tempo music genres, this could just be the ticket.

Decent for mixed usage. The Skullcandy Venue are fairly versatile headphones since they can also be used wired to eliminate their latency issues. They are comfortable for longer listening sessions and are well-built. They have an exciting sound profile and a decent ANC feature to isolate ambient noise during commuting. They are stable enough for most sports but aren’t sweat resistant, and the over-ear design is not the most breathable. If used wirelessly, they won’t be great for watching TV and gaming, and the microphone won’t be the best to communicate in multiplayer games.

Long-lasting, active noise-cancelling cans

from TechRadar

The Skullcandy Venue offer long battery life and unique Tile integration but its average active noise cancellation, spotty connection, and poor build quality are let downs. For the money, there are better alternatives but if you have a habit of losing your headphones and like the style, the Venue are a unique choice.

Skullcandy’s noise-cancellers are here to tickle other cans in the game

from Stuff

It may not sound, feel premium or cancel noise like the Bose QC35 or the Sony WH1000X M3, but it's ideal if you're low on budget and looking for a headphone that delivers above-average sound quality, blocks out unwanted lows and keeps playing your favourite tunes with its long-lasting battery without making you look unstylish.

The Venue headphones price wise are at the top of the scale when you consider the Skullcandy range at £149.99 but if you want headphones with a bunch of great features and sound great these are ones to buy for sure! So overall they look great and all the features you come to expect for paying over £100 for headphones. The noise cancellation is a great addition and works really well and with a 24-hour battery and with the use of Tile Technology you will never lose these I fell in love with them.

The Skullcandy Venue is an excellent mid-range effort from the Utah-based audio company. It’s clear that it’s tried to pack the Venue with as much ‘stuff’ as it can, from ANC to support for the Tile app. Sound quality is listenable, but not exceptional. I liked the conservative and subdued design, although wasn’t blown away by the build quality. In short, it offers decent value for money, but before you drop down your credit card details for a pair of these, there are others I’d recommend first, like the Anker Soundcore Space NC.

Surprisingly decent noise cancellation for a relatively low price

from PC Magazine

For the price, the Venue gets solid marks for its better-than-average ANC and powerful audio performance. If you're looking for decent ANC in a wireless headphone pair that can bring the bass, the Venue may be it.

Skullcandy’s foray into the noise-canceling realm is a solid first effort. The Venue’s active noise-canceling ability is particularly impressive, even if its audio quality won’t blow you away. The on-earcup controls could be more intuitive and I wish they were collapsible (aka more travel-friendly), but there’s a lot to like about Skullcandy’s Venue headphones.
