SkullCandy Push Active and Push Ultra True Wireless
A True Wireless with a proper dynamic driver is a hard find. The Skullcandy Push Active and Push Ultra are almost identical in performance with the main focus on bass. This also focuses on midrange frequencies. They both have the same voice command features too. The difference lies in the design. The Push Active is more of a daily use device and the Push Ultra can be used roughly. The Active has an in-ear design while the Ultra has an over-ear. The Active with the case can go up to 34 hours and playback of 10 hours, which is 4 hours more than Pus Ultra. But the Push Ultra is water-resistant, making it perfect for rough use.
