      I think it Bose, Sony, Sennheiser, Skullcandy and JBL they all are best

      But it depends on how much cost

      The earphones cost Higher more more best sound quality will be there

      I love my JLab earbuds. They are found pretty cheap at local stores for the sound quality they deliver.

      They are talks about commercial level companies. Which is pretty fair enough

      If you are talks about Shure and Noble Audio or Audeze earbuds they are pretty expensive for public

      This author is definitely not an audiophile.

      I agree with your decision to include Bose at the top of the list, however they are pretty expensive.

      The other brands are just hugely marketable companies and hence people like this author knows only about them.

      I would advice people to look into brands like RHA and Soundmagic. They offer great earphones at a decent price. And they are made by serious audiophiles.

      I am Rajesh. I used many more brands like skull candy, sound magic, jbl, Sony, sennheiser. But I really love sennheiser headphones.

      It is expensive but that is not a matter here we talk about sound quality only.

      Not a loud sound. You are a lover of music means definitely choose sennheiser. Value for money and all headphones comes 2 years of warranty.

      Definitely you feel extreme and luxury sound quality.

      Only for music lovers.

      If you want loud music means choose skull candy.

      Simply you want quality sound and price range little bit low compares others means go for Sony.

      Low price and get a clear sound to invest to sound magic.

      Otherwise jbl is a good brand but can invest more than 3500rs means get a better sound.

      Bose is top level one. But that is not for middle level users. That is truly more expensive.

      Beats dr. Dre is expensive but that is best for beat sounds only. Like English songs. Lady gaga, arash etc..

      I feel

      1. Sennheiser

      2. Sony

      3. Jbl

      4. Beats dr. Dre

      5. Sound magic

      6. Skull candy

      Thank you...

      Where's Shure?? Or Grado??

    • profile image

      Saur 17 months ago

      Nope - except sennheiser or probably to certain extent bose, all other brands mentioned above gimmick companies cheap products, easily selling in third world countries - India falls prey. One because good sound is not affordable for mass & there is no place where one can try products other than a fee cheap model mentioned above.

      Try Audio Technicia, Grado, AKG, Beyer Dynamics. For expensive brands B & O, B&W.

      There are some really cheap headphones/ ear pods giving equivalent to expensive names.

      Shure? Beyerdynamics?Grado? Ultrasone?. Except sennheiser, all the brand from this list is just famous and overprice. They are not for audiophiles or studios just for casual consumers.

      Where is Polk on this list? Their headphones are killer when it comes to clarity. Bose has the best NC hands down but when it comes to performance and clarity, Polk makes them look more like Skullcandy. Which BTW shouldn't be anywhere near this list.

      @fayis: Pioneer and Panasonic are both very good brands. If you like them, go for them by all means. The only reason I didn't include them is because both the brands excel in making over-the-ear models, but not so much when it comes to earbuds. Panasonic mostly dominates the cheap market.

      @annon, boster: I am sorry that you had bad experience with Skullcandy. Yes, to some extent, I agree that the brand does not always make very durable products. Still, they provide great sound when you consider value for money.
