The Sony MDR-XB650BT is loud, and I have not even started talking about the audio quality. The review unit we got was a metallic blue that will more than make your music preferences obvious. It looks like a lot of the other new Sony headphones with large cups that cover your ears. All the controls are around the right earcup. There is NFC too, offering one-tap play on the left ear cup.

Corsair VOID RGB SE comes in black matte design and a limited edition yellow colour. They are extremely personalised with LED lighting and a software to adjust the settings.

Price: Rs 999

Most bundled smartphone earphones either sound mediocre or offer really poor fit. Some look cheap out of the box while premium looking ones like Apple’s earpods also don’t deliver that much on sound. Brainwavz Omega IEM promises to fix all that woes with a comfortable fit and noise cancellation.

If you have a smartphone with really poor bundled headphones, this could be the finest options under Rs 1,000. Though we have noted issues here, they are not deal breakers. Here is our review. 

Jays U-JAYS

Price: Rs 15,999

U-Jays is one of the two headphones made by this company. One look at the box and you know they mean business, in a very European kind of way. No kidding around with build quality of the hardware. The design and style is what you would expect from an European manufacturer.

But should you buy U-Jays? Does it deliver on the performance, given the high price? We find out in our review.

Sennheiser Momentum Wireless Over Ear

Price: Rs 34,990

Not all audiophiles are okay with wireless due to the fears that there will be some loss in quality at the end of the day. Can the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless put paid to these fears?

The Momentum Wireless set has more than its share of steel and leather. The soft leather ear cups feel comforting and don’t irritate you even after long hours. The controls — power and volume — are on the left cup, while the right one has the NFC spot. There is an extra cable in the box in case you want to go wired.
