Here is the JBL T210’s review-

Design and Build Quality

The JBL T210 is greatly built and very durable even when heavily used every day. The wires are rubberized and flattened to prevent tangling problems. The housing is two-piece plastic with a metallic finish. The silicone section is matte.

The housing is very durable and can withstand daily usage without any physical damage. The wires are very tensile and can last a long time. The nozzles are angled and offer great fit so they don’t pop off your ears.

Available Colors

Black, Grey, Rose Gold

Sound

The reason why it is best because this jbl earphone under 1500 comes with promising sound quality along with good design. The mid-bass and sub-bass are well balanced and produce stabilized sounds. Overall, these earphones produce very good bass. The sound output department of the T210 is pretty solid for its price and cracking or muddy sounds are not present. As these are by Harman Kardon(Audio Equipment Sub-Brand of Samsung) their bass output is strong and this makes its performance even better.

The noise isolation of the T210 is fair and it delivers the performance you might expect it to. At higher sound levels there is barely any foreign sound audible.

Others

There are an in-line microphone and a Single Control Button that lets you Answer/Reject calls and Play/Pause the music. The in-line mic is conveniently placed and does not cause any microphonics or sound disturbances. The sound leakage through this earphone isn’t noticeable at mid volumes but gets out at higher volumes. Thus, you can consider it as one of the best entertainment earphones in this price range.

Sound

The sound output and performance, overall, is excellent provided the price, with great bass drivers and good mids and vocals.

Noise Isolation

The Noise Isolation offered in the Smile Jamaica is good, even though deeper external sounds can seep through. But if you crank up the volume then this too can be rectified.

Uniqueness/Facts

  • Audio Technica is an established brand and gives top of the line features in its products and the Cor 150iS doesn’t disappoint, ranking 3rd in our list of Top 5 Best earphones under 1500 with mic.

Audio Technica SonicSport ATH-Cor150iS in best earphones under 1500 topbestof

Here is the Audio Technica SonicSport ATH-Cor150iS’s review-

Design and Build Quality

These earphones feature snap-on/off cord. These ear hooks make it ideal for workout and exercise sessions. The housing is plastic but it does not feel cheap. The design of these headphones is very impressive.

The Cor 150iS is not very heavy and fits comfortably around the ear even during running or jumping. The build quality is OK and will last for quite some time with mild usage. The cables are sturdy but the lack of anti-tangling is a setback.

Available Colors

White, Black, Blue, Pink, Lime Green

Sound

The sound quality is good with a punchy bass which satisfies typical listeners and a fairly clean and defined mid and treble. The audio gets quite loud during aggressive tracks and you can experience them fully. Though the sound tears up a bit and gets distorted at higher levels.

Noise Isolation

The noise isolation offered is fair and not too over the top. Foreign sounds do tend to creep in and are consistent through mid to low volume levels, even though higher volumes cancel them out nicely.

Others

This Audio Technica in-ear headphone comes with mic and it’s Single Control Button is physically longer, tactile and responsive. Audio Technica is a big brand but still, they decided to not go with a metallic finish shell is astounding even though the competition is doing it in a similar price range.

What’s in the box

Audi Technica includes an Ear hanger(hook) and 3 different sized ear tips in the box.

CONS-
  • Distortion at higher volumes and frequencies.
  • No metallic casing.
  • No anti-tangling wires
  • Not Sweat Proof.

Value for Money- 8.5/10

SoundMagic MP21

Uniqueness/Facts

  • SoundMagic is a great brand which delivers great musical devices at all price points and the MP21 made it to our list of Top 5 best headphones under 1500 in India at 4th rank.

SoundMagic MP21 in best earphones under 1500 topbestof

Here is the SoundMagic MP21’s review-

Design and Build Quality

Design-wise these headphones are pretty straightforward, without anything fancy. The housing is made of tough plastic and holds the embedded earbuds. The earplugs can be worn around the ear too with help of the provided ear guides (hook). The build quality of the SounMagic MP21 is great, with the tough plastic casing doing its job perfectly. The cable has rubber strain reliefs at points where the pressure is more which makes them strong and durable. These earphones will survive all the daily harsh conditions and function properly.

Available Colors

Black, White, Pink

Sound

The SoundMagic MP21 offers well controlled solid bass thanks to its huge dynamic driver which allows for heavy bass. The mids take a hit due to the heavy bass but are still very lush. The treble isn’t as highly detailed but it will satisfy your daily needs. Overall the sound output is bass based but mids and trebles are acceptably good.

Noise Isolation

The noise isolation performance is average and it only passively cancels out external sounds. The SoundMagic MP21 doesn’t perform well in this department and if you use earphones amidst a lot of noise then this will be a problem for you.

Others

The in-line mic is a good addition even though it is not the best in class it still delivers crisp audio, it would perform better if it was placed closer to the mouth. The Single Control Button is very wobbly and you have to press in on it to play/pause etc. Sound leakage is very prominent at even mid volume levels and doesn’t go away at low volumes, where it still manages to slip out, and at high volumes, it’s even worse with excess leakage.

What’s in the box

SoundMagic has included an ear hook, 3 soft ear tips of different sizes in the box.

CONS-
  • Mids and Treble don’t sound as good as the bass level
  • Noise Cancellation is poor
  • A lot of sound leakages
  • Mic placement is distant from the mouth
  • Not Sweat Proof.

Value for Money- 8/10

Sony MDR-EX155AP

Uniqueness/Facts

  • Sony is a famous and trusted brand with great customer support and impressive products and its budget offering- EX155AP does not disappoint. Even though it ranked last, it’s still not the least.
  • In term of the sale after service, it is the best earphones to buy under 1500.  No other headset company will provide such sale after services like sony.

Here is the Sony MDR-EX155AP’s review-

Design and Build Quality

The EX155AP earphones look very cool and stylish and we have no complaints in the design section. The earbuds sport a metallic finish angled earplugs. The cable is textured and sturdy plus, it’s also the same colour as the earplugs and looks very aesthetic.

The build quality is what you would expect from Sony, it does not compromise on build quality and durability and these earphones will last their life out even with extreme usage.

Available Colors

Red, Black, White, Light Blue

Sound

These are another pair of headphones which focus more on bass delivery than other sounds. The bass is greatly balanced and output is consistent without distortion or cracking thanks to its 9mm dynamic drivers. But this costs the mid and treble output and makes them sound not so good with instrumental sounds coming out a bit mixed. The overall performance is OK but we hoped it would deliver more clear and fluid mid and treble.

Noise Isolation

The aesthetic looking earplugs do not block out any external sounds thus making it the worst performer in terms of noise cancellation as even at higher volumes external sounds keep flooding in and disturb the listening experience.

Others

The new updated version sports a built-in mic and Single Control Button which controls the calls and music. An added feature is the ability to customize this single button to either play/pause or lower or higher volume or skip, all this can be done with an app available on the Play Store. The Sound Leakage in this earphone is not that audible but still, it’s noticeable at higher volumes.

What’s in the box

Sony has included a cable manager, 3 different sized ear tips in the box.

CONS-
  • Above Average Mid and Treble Output
  • Below Average Noise Cancellation
  • Not Sweat Proof.

Value for Money- 7.5/10
