Skullcandy and Anker have a fair bit in common. Neither is going to be confused with more recognizable and “elite” brands like Sony, Bose, or Sennheiser, yet they find ways to be appealing. The focus isn’t on achieving the clearest sound or being better than the best out there. It’s about getting real value every time you put them on your ears.
