For 13 years I have used Creative EP-630, someone at digit forum suggested me those back in 2007 because I wanted extra bass, since then I am buying those every time they stop working. They usually last 6 months to 3 years at most, it's random and cost around Rs.700.

If I listen to them on very high volume they used to break down in under an year. I got like 9-10 of them in my lifetime as they usually breakdown or I lose them. But I was satisfied by the sound and extra bass boost. Last pair lasted me most, around 4 years but it broke down yesterday.

So this time I am looking for some other better option. Please suggest something better which has extra bass but without compromising on sound quality for around Rs.2000. I am fine with both wired or wireless. I think in-ear canal earphones will be better as external sound can't get in, just like the one I had.

I usually listen to Trap & Bass, Dubstep, Moombahton, Hip-Hop/Rap (Mostly heavy bass songs).

Mostly mobile and sometimes pc. I enjoy extra bass for some reason, and I am used to Creative EP-630 for 12 years.

what is the difference between Sony MDR-XB55AP , Sony MDR-XB75AP, Sony MDR-XB510AS, JAYS - t-Four Wireless. These all seem to have extra bass boost.

I checked reviews of RHA - MA390, SoundMAGIC - E10C & JAYS - a-JAYS One+, these all have less bass compared to the models I listed above.

The above mentioned were for warm & smooth sound signature preference.

For just only extra bass sound signature any sony will work, JBL T290 has similar signature just check reviews, then any JVC -HA- FX series (extreme explosives)with XX mentioned on the packages.

1 more brand will suffice.

Few TFZ earphones but now difficult to source in India

Visit hifinage.com for following if available
T peos popular if available
Few other chi fi brands like Trn or CCA,
V sonic VSD3/5,
Kz acoustics,

Sorry I really cannot remember or pin point exact models from them.

If you are into earbuds then TY Hi-Z HP-32 red cable version or
Penon Audio's Earbuds Anonymous FB group edition

Will update later if I missed some.

LEss isnt necessrily bad. These so called bass boost tend sound damp and drown every other sound, I have stopped opting for such iems ( this comes from a hardcore XB30 and XB55 user)

CHoose a balanced profile with decent bass instead.
