  6. Hi
    Can any one suggest me the best Ear over headphone with long cord for TV listening purpose,

    • Hi Deepak,
      We suggest this three earphones for you. you can buy any one of this according to your budget.

      JBL C100SI

      Philips SHQ1200/10 ActionFit

      Sennheiser MX 170

  7. I have used house of Marley earphones and JBL too. To be honest, I bought these two in just a span of eight months. Faced no issue with sound quality or bass but the problem is with the wires. Wear and tear is a big issue with wired earphones. Once wire is damaged there is nothing one could do with earphones. So, I decided to say no to these big brand names. I have nothing against them, just want to share my problems. Recently, bought one less priced earphone from latestone website by the name ptron hbe7 for just for rs 299. Wire quality is different from the ones which I had used in the past. Sound quality good and marley and jbl were excellent. One thing is confirmed, quality come with a price tag. People who have very high expectation should always go for premium brand earphones. People with limited budget can survive with earphones like hbe7.

  8. Motorola 3.5mm Premium Earbuds w/ Remote and Mic – Black
    Philips SHQ1200/10 ActionFit
