I have JBL T160BT. I do use them sometimes. They have decent sound quality for the price. If you are a bass head then you certainly will not like these, they have medium bass. But if you are ok with this bass then you will like them after some hours of burn-in. The battery seems good, though I haven't measured how long it took to drain it out completely.

I mostly use wired Beyerdynamic Byron and sound is a bit cleaner in this one.

I got them on Amazon sale for INR 1499 I guess. I am not sure. On Amazon in my orders it shows I paid 1999 but I bought these cause they were on sale and I wanted a Bluetooth headsets.

In India it seems all the Bluetooth headsets are priced high just cause they are wireless.

Also, if you are worried about warranty then get the headsets/headphones from Headphone zone as they might help you in claiming warranty. All you need to do is bear one side of shipping charges.

How much is the usual shipping charge(or which city to send to)?
In my case I got the Beyerdynamic contact number from the HZ site and directly sent my headsets to Bangalore from Chennai, for warranty claims, which costed me Rs.510. The return was paid by the company.
But @TigerKing sent his unit to HZ then they took care of the rest I guess.

Reviews seems good but Aren't they costly? I would suggest to go for some wireless in ear ones until you Save some more money and get a over the ear bluetooth headphones which are going to cover your ears and give a better experience than in-ears. Though I cant really suggest any model as I have not used any Bluetooth headphones, neither am following to things to know about them. This is just a personal thought.

But this review here suggests they have "fairly neutral sound signature"

When I was searching for IEM, I read it has more bass..
You should try HZ site reviews.
I think that reviewer got used to bass heavy IEMs and he/she may be found out that rha 390 is more neutral than other bass heavy products..

Review: RHA MA390 (Bass on a Budget) - Headphonesty

Understand your thought. Yes, the price was a little high. Below 3K, the review was good.

I like to buy later OverEar Wireless Bluetooth. That budget expensive as of now.

If any suggestion welcome.:emoji_slight_smile:
