Flipkart SmartBuy Wired Metal Headset With Mic (Gun Metal, In the Ear) - Review

Read the review of Flipkart SmartBuy Wired Metal Headset With Mic - a Flipkart exclusive earphone which is available at a budget price. Know about its bass/treble balance, the noise cancellation ability, build quality and microphone quality by going through my complete review.

I am an earphone person. I need my earphones when I am traveling in public transport when I am working alone on my desk writing something and of course when I am watching my favorite movies. Selecting durable headphones which can give a perfect fit, have the right balance of bass, can do noise cancellation and work as microphones too during calls is a challenge no small.
Flipkart SmartBuy Wired Metal Headset With Mic
Today I have decided to give a try to Flipkart SmartBuy Metal Headset with Mic which is a Flipkart exclusive and has quite rave reviews from people who have used it. At the price of Rs.349, they are quite cheap and I received my order on the second day itself. Since then a week has gone by and I am ready to review this small piece of supposed excellence.

In-Ear Fitting - The earphone is in gunmetal shape and contrary to what I read by some reviewers, the shape fits perfectly in my ear. It does slip easily and kevlar material is sweat repellant so no soggy feeling in your ear. At just 12g it is as light it can get.

Noise cancellation microphone - You won't need to pick the microphone part and bring it near to your mouth to be clear on call. Even while traveling in public transport I found that the voice being transmitted was quite clear and loud. However, the mic is located at around 14 inches away from the earphones so it is better to keep the microphones tugged near about the chest level to avoid any noise at all. A clip near the Y joint where the microphone is located would have solved the problem but the same is missing in this headset.

Bass/Treble - The ratio of treble is more than bass which is slightly noticeable in rock or hard rock music. This is a small imperfection that is present in the headset but it is not something that everybody is going to notice and at this price range is acceptable.

FX Effects - Audio effects associated with music is reproduced with average quality. Distortion and Time-based effects were not exactly reproduced by the earphones whereas in case of Modulation, Pitch and Dynamic effects the reproduction was quite satisfactory. Overall an average rating in this department.

Wrap up

Overall I would give this headset a rating of 4 out of 5. It lags in the department of bass-treble balance, the microphone is located at quite a distance from the headset and the clip is also absent which could have resolved this small issue. Other than these 2 issues, the good things are the build quality, the earpiece shape which had a perfect fit for me, noise cancellation is good for this price range and the price range itself is a big attraction for the quality you are getting. Recommended I this is your budget range otherwise there are better options above Rs.500.
