    Can anyone help me out with finding best value for money headphones??

    Things I want..
    In-Ear wired headphones,
    Good Bass,
    Crystal Clear Sound,
    Better Noise cancellation,
    (Frequent traveling, Mumbai Local, Express etc etc)
    Tangle free wires or braided wires,

    Any other things to consider??
    Please do tell me..

    Budget is too tight.. ₹2000
    If headset is best in that range, then only I can go above ₹2000.

    Thank you.

    I was in the same boat as you & went for soundmagic e10c.I was blown away by how good these sound considering the price. Easily miles better than any stock earphones(including apple earpods) i got a refurb unit. its good as new. considering your budget you can buy a new piece from Amazon or save and get a refurb unit for 1100ish on ebay.

    To add to that, you can easily get a E10BT, if you game a lot, then stick with e10c.
    (e10BT has latency)

    i have used the sony xb55 and was really satisfied with its audio output-it seemed well balanced with a decent mix of bass and treble.I used to have a boat 235 earphone earlier which sounded pretty awful-sometimes they sell in the 1000-ish price bracket on sites like amazon and should be totally avoided by the discerning buyer.

    Are there any Bluetooth earphones with no wire at all and just the earbuds in op's budget? Bose has those but they are very expensive.

    Beyerdynamic - Byron

    I have recently purchased Beyerdynamic Byron. It has flat sound which I prefer (completely opposite of my Z623, I know). I have listened to e10c for few hours and couldn't just accept it despite lots of good feedback from internet including Digit forum. It does have solid bass, but a bit of more bass for my taste (I use my Z623 with really 50% bass). E10C has V-shaped sound so it has boosted treble and bass. (Headphone zone is the source of this knowledge)

    Eventually decided to go for something which has normal bass(Flat sound) so looked at Byron, RHA 390 and Focal Spark. I have heard from @Hrishi that RHA 390 isn't that good and it's predecessor was better, which we dont find at the right price from a trustable site. So I went with reviews for Byron and decided to give it a try.

    So far I can say I feel satisfied. It does have less(read normal) bass and treble is also just right which should not give headache after hours of usage. I have listened to this for around 40mins and getting used to it. Would recommend it if you arent bass head. Just check what kind of headsets are good for the genres you listen to and then list out the headsets.

    I am sorry for my own question in this thread. But help me out here, one wire is lengthier that the other ear piece wire by ~1cm. Is this ok? Shall I request for a replacement? I can't find anything related to this in other reviews. Need some on advice on this, please. Thank you.

    That earpiece, did it break or it was sticked together and just came out ?
    You can get the RMA details from headphonezone website and Just call the RHA service center and ask them directly. You might have to courier your headsets to the service center location

    No it's not broken.. it is still attached.. I can hear sound from right earpiece.. only metal part came out.. check image

    [​IMG]

    On other side, left side earpiece.. metal piece and something attached it came out, wire still soldered.. nothing happened to it.. can here sound..

    I think both side not glued properly..

    I can see there is warranty claim on site..
    RHA Warranty Claim & Service in India

    Will this work instead of calling service Centre?

    Also there is one thing in above warranty claim form..

    "*Nature of the issue - "
    So what should I write in that??

    Click on other and then how about "metal encasing fell out". I am not sure how will they perceive this and accept for RMA. Wait for others to comment too. @Hrishi could you help here?
