I eventually ended up buying something called PTron for him - 1.5Kok, you asked about cheap pair of wireless IEM's a week ago for your cook.
Now, compare what Rs.2.5k gets you compared with Rs.13k which is what the jabra cost a year back
Maybe the Jabra's are not good enough on their own compared to ?airpods but they blow these ant audio wave sports right out of the water.
No comparison whatsoever.

The thing with the airpods is they are a winner for taking calls but the problem is reversed in a noisy environment. Caller hears you but you struggle to hear them.
People in the comments calling the airpods better than the Jabra for call quality.
The difference is slight in the review but no complaints kinda seals the deal
When the airpods come out there were these calls of indignation about how expensive they were.
That is until Bragis launched. Then airpods appeared very affordable
All of this is rubbing up against a sober reality.
You can get decent call quality and competitive at that, for no extra cost.
What do i mean.
I mean the wired, free headset that comes with the phone.
Hold that mic up and it will compete with any wireless offering there is. Possibly even beat it.
Anker Sound Core Liberty -
Like it as it came cheap and is really good for the price
On the flip side, The mids are weak.. call quality is poor
Gets uncomfortable within 30 minutes or so although I think it‘s an isolated issue with me more than anything else
This one actually

What stands out with them is the isolation and the wireless range.
Because they isolate so well they could be uncomfortable. So what are the options for tips.
Comply makes tips for them but you won't get them back in the case to charge as the tips will protrude.
So people have resorted to modding other tips

What gets me is how short the stem is ? it looks half the length of the stem on my senns and i can sleep on my side with those on.
A longer stem instead of tapering would have allowed normal size foam tips and you'd have had the best of both worlds.
Getting it back into the charging case would still be a problem though.
I don't think i'll be trying these out any time soon.
Not on their site any more. Is it time already for the next marginally improved installment. heh
Had the HD650 too. Fine headphone but just doesn't suit my taste. It sounded to dark to me and just didn't float my boat. Sold it for a song.@ Chaos, you have some big hitters in your audio arsenal, really impressive and wise investment. Other than the Shure IEM, had all of those cans. Fantastic sound, but somehow the old hd 25 always pulls me back.
Yep, that infamous Sennheiser veil. Thankfully my ears are too bad to hear it. I don't have 650, but 600. But their sound signatures are similar I guess.Had the HD650 too. Fine headphone but just doesn't suit my taste. It sounded to dark to me and just didn't float my boat. Sold it for a song.
Hey,I have multiple devices for desktop listening:
AKG K712 Pro
Audio Technica MSR7
Beyer Dynamic DT880 Premium 600 ohm
Two headphone amps/pre-amps
Art Audio SCC-1
SMSL M8 + PSU
I prefer the Beyers and Audio Technica with the tube and the SMSL. The AKG with the ART audio and DACMagic.
The Sennheiser isn't in the same class and is primarily used for games. Don't care where I put it.
For mobile, it is a Shure SE425 + Ultrasone NaOS DAC/Amp.
eBay - long long time ago. It was lost in transit. eBay refunded me the money. I got it six months later. Found that seller had shut shop by then and couldn't pay him back.Hey,
Where did you buy the SMSL from?
Nope never heard themRight, that's what I remember from a long headfi thread. But never had a chance to A/B them.
BTW, do you have any experience with Ultrasone headphones?
I use it with a cheap Samsung phone and it sounds fantastic (compared to Sony 100XM3, and Bose qc35), the NC is decent and mics for calls are bad, but the sound quality is really good, it is not unnatural like the Sony and not volume dependent like the qc35. I wasted a lot of money to find the best possible BTNC cans as my job involves a LOT of travel and the PXC550 is the best possible compromise between ANC and sound quality for my ears.Recently bought PXC 550. My first ever decent headphones. And I am loving it already.
Still trying to figure out how to make best of it. Using it with laptop/OP3. But I am sure that's not the true experience.
Any advice is most welcome. Is it must to have dac/amp?
