He also said that most of the products available in the market force the consumer to choose between aesthetics and the performance. With Skullcandy Barricade line of products, they will get both and that too at an affordable price.
In the last few years, the market for wireless speakers has found a special section of users who want good sound quality and great design. There are a number of different companies that make some amazing Bluetooth speakers including Bose but their speaker range is quite expensive, and not all the buyers in India can afford them. The Skullcandy speakers provide good quality in every price range. From affordable Barricade Mini to Barricade XL, the buyer can choose the right speaker depending on his or her needs. There is still a lot of scope in the audio market in India, and wireless speakers can grab more market share for the company.
