Skullcandy has launched the Grind Wireless Bluetooth headphones in India. Priced at Rs. 6,499, the headphone will be exclusively available at Tata Croma stores for 1 month. The Grind Wireless features an integrated amplifer, which the company claims to provide a higher power power rating and less distortion. The microphone as well as the call, track and volume controls are integrated into the right cup of the headphones. Skullcandy also claims that the Grind Wireless headphones will offer 12-hours of battery life.
Amlan Bhattacharjya, Founder and CEO of Brandeyes Distributors Pvt. Ltd stated, “Our wireless product innovations were well-received in 2015. GrindTM Wireless will continue our mission to launch headphone in style that change consumers' expectations of Bluetooth® product's aesthetics and acoustic performance.”
The introduction of Bluetooth headphones may be a very good idea considering the fact that certain smartphone manufacturers have started removing the 3.5mm headphone jack. LeEco has already ditched the 3.5mm jack in its Le 2 and Le Max 2 smartphones, while the recently unveiled Moto Z also doesn’t feature the jack. There are also reports that Apple may also remove the port in the upcoming iPhone 7 smartphone.
