[SOLVED] skullcandy crusher headphones - bass boost only works when i hold in the embossed skull button

i got the skullcandy crusher headphones for christmas :)

the instructions say to put the red end of the 3.5mm connector cable (2 lines) into the headphones and the other end (black, 3 lines) into the audio device (e.g. laptop, phone, etc). but when i did this and turned up the bass using the slider on the left headphone speaker, i couldn't hear any bass unless i held in the embossed skull button on the cable.

(unless my product is defect, then) THIS IS WRONG! when i put the red end of the cable into my laptop and the black end into the actual headphones, THEN THE BASS WAS ON THE WHOLE TIME, without having to hold in the skull button! :)

once i figured that out, WOW what a great, shaking sound experience! :)


here's my amazon review for the skullcandy crusher headphones.

  2. Is it normal that I have to jack up the volume to a pretty high volume (which probably might hurt my ears) to get the bass amp going? 'cause when listening to music with "normal" volume, the sliding the slider doesn't have any changes to the bass, which is the minimal level.

    1. i don't think so. it could just b that the songs r mastered in a way that the bass levels aren't very high--unless u've compared the levels w different headphones n notice a considerable difference.

  4. I have the same concern.....I have to turn up my bass up to 100% just to feel any bass on some of my EDM songs :/...50 out 500 songs actually have "crazy amount" of bass when slider is too up.

    1. The crusher is made of two parts inside there is the bass driver and the primary sound driver. Turning up the slider will make the bass driver to create the high quality bass. When the sound is high with the bass all the way down the primary driver will give some bass but not the true experience. If yours stops working try switching batteries or bend the recivers that touch both ends of the battery. What happens is that they get bent back where they don't touch anymore so that could be the problem. My bass stopped working so you can go to skullcandy .com and fill out a form and ship the headphones back and they will refund you with new ones. Hope this helps mine broke and it sucked.

  6. The. Skull candy crusher are made of 2 parts a bass driver and a passive driver. Both will provide bass but when the slider is turned up you will notice the difference in bass. If your bass is not working try switching batteries or bend the reciever that touches the battery to make sure it is touching both ends. Domes time it bends back and the battery does not provide power for the bass. If all fails like mine fill out a brief on skull candy website and follow insructions to send back and recieve a refund of new crushers. Good luck
