    I am looking for a basic on the ear type earphone mainly to avoid disturbing others while watching movies/playing games and with mic for occasional chatting. I am not an audiophile and could hardly distinguish quality of music. So I am only looking for reliable units that come cheap. I have tried Zebronics/i-Ball/Frontech units in the past and they all gave up in 6 months or so.

    I came across this Philips unit on Amazon (it was on some sort of sale then) Philips SHL3195BK On-Ear Headphones with Mic (Black) (https://www.amazon.in/dp/B014W5X2IA/).

    Would this be worth buying or are there any better units out there in a similar or smaller budget?

    I need a mic too. This seems to be a no-mic model.

    In need of an in-ear headphone with mic.
    To be used in voice call, music and video watching either in mobile or laptop.

    Can you please choose one from these or recommend anything better.

    I got it today. The LED lighting looks impressive. But the headset volume is very low. Even with silence at home, all volumes 100% I am unable to hear game music, let alone sounds of enemies far away!

    I am very disappointed.

    If there is any suggestion to troubleshoot, I am willing.

    50mm drivers. You might need an amp or DAC... Maybe!
    Even my PC fails to properly drive my ATHM50x. Some inbuilt audio chips on mobo can be really crappy.

    So not much hope of this improving? Would a cheaper headphone have been better in this regard then?
