iDance JOCKEY 400 Over-ear Headphone

Fashion has made its way into everything and the iDance JOCKEY 400 headphone proves it well. Priced at 999 Rupees online, this wired over-ear headphone has successfully managed to combine style with features. Its eye-catching design and unexpected flexibility are unmatchable with any other headphone in the market.

Comfort: The flexible design enables this headphone to be fit on any head size, but the problem may arise because of the supra-aural earcups. It is not meant for long sessions even when the earcups come covered with extra soft cushions. However, the padded headband can be appreciated for providing a great level of comfort to the user.

Sound and Microphone Quality: Huge 44m driver units generate much louder audio that gets even enhanced by the closed back design. Although the frequency response range of 15 – 20,000 Hz is common in headphones of this price segment, but the depth of bass that this headphone has achieved is hard to find anywhere else. Neodymium magnets result in immersive and high-quality music listening experience.

The high impedance of 32 Ohm makes it best suited for premium high power devices, but that does not mean it is incompatible with other devices. As far as a device houses a 3.5-mm port, you can enjoy your favorite songs on this headphone also.

Further, this stylish iDance headphones also comes with a built-in microphone. So it could be used by users for making voice/video calls to friends and family members.

Comfort: The flat cushions on the earcups give a long-lasting comfort without blocking the sound. The headband is made up of plastic, which is really flexible in this Headphone set. Moreover, the sliders on both sides of headband make it adjustable to fit on any head. Though there is no padding on the headband itself which results in a little annoying feel.

Sound Quality: The combination of closed back ear cups and their circumaural design help you get isolated from the environment around. Its 32-mm drivers made out of neodymium magnets produce louder sounds with great depth. Furthermore, its frequency response range of 19 – 21000 Hz seems enough to produce high-quality bass and treble levels. Maximum power input of 30mW and high impedance of 32 Ohm could prove to be a big disappointment for many, however.

Handling: The entire body of this Philips BASS headphones is made up of small parts that get popped out when enough force is applied. Actually, this feature provides extra durability and portability. The 1.2-meter tangle free copper cord is good for outdoors, but will fall short if you plan to use it on your desktop.

  • Soft cushions on the earcups make it comfortable to use
  • Good bass and treble levels

Philips SHO3305 Review and Price in India

Sound Quality: The Philips SHO3305 headphones is a beast when comes to high-quality sound. 32 mm driver units with frequency response range of 19 – 21,000 Hz produce deep bass and sharp treble. Neodymium magnets result in ultra-loud sound levels. However, the maximum power input of 30 mW is a big disappointment.

Handling: Almost every part of this headphone can be removed and refitted by the user himself. L-shape connector ensures long durability but also results in a little annoyance. It only comes with a 1.2-meter cable that will fall short in most cases.

JBL T250 SI Headphone for Loud and Clear sound

The T250 is an over-the-ear type Headphone. It is actually an entry-level premium product in the world of premium headphones. This best headphones in a budget is manufactured by the American audio electronics company JBL. It is available on Amazon with a price tag of Rupees 900. Sound quality of this headphone is bad considering the price, but the build quality is really unmatchable.

Comfort: The adjustable ear cups with soft cushions can fit on the ears of any size. Padded headband with adjustable slider provides extra comfort during long music listening sessions. In addition, the earcups have the circumaural design that fits right on to your ears giving more immersive experience.

Sound Quality: For the price, the specs on this headphone are of average quality. You only get the brand name and nothing much else. Frequency response range of 20 – 20,000 Hz is not much wide for a headphone like this. The bass and treble levels are not that much appreciable but give a decent output.

The impedance of 32 Ohms will require more power to produce loud music, so you have sure of using it only with those devices, which have high power output. It can meet your musical expectations, but there are better options available if you can compromise on the brand name.

Handling: Retractable headband slider and the light weightiness make the JBL T250 SI over the ear headphone much portable. You can easily use this headphone outside without much of hassle, thanks to the optimal length of the cord.


  • Premium built quality
  • Superb comfort
  • Stylish design
  • Best for outdoors

Headset with Mic iBall Dhak Dhak

The Dhak Dhak headphone from Indian brand iBall is a great device for those people who like comfort more than the quality of sound. However, it seems a little overpriced at 699 INR, but that is manageable as soon as you get what you have been promised.

Comfort: Thanks to the circumaural design that the earcups easily fit on any ear for high-level comfort. The iBall Dhak Dhak Headphone can be easily used for long duration because of the soft cushions. Adjustable design is another feature of this headphone.

Sound Quality: The bass and treble levels are average, but the crispiness is not. Large 40mm driver units generate sensitivity of 113 dB, which is pretty loud. This headphone also suffers the same problem of high impedance (32 Ohm).

The headphone is also equipped with an omnidirectional microphone with a sensitivity of -40 dB.

Handling: This headphone comes with a 2.3-meter cord, which is longer than you would ever need. However, the inline volume controls can provide the user some relief.


  • Super comfortable
  • 3-meter long cord
  • Inline Volume controls


  • Bass levels are not much deep
  • High impedance of 32 Ohm

Final Thoughts: Just because of its huge weight, I do not endorse this iBall headphone. However, I cannot disrespect the fact that it can produce loud & clear sound and captures powerful audio through its well-designed mic. Unexpected but true, the Mic has an in-line volume controller as well, allowing users to set the right volume so that the listener another side gets ear-friendly audio.
