iBall i630MV Headphone Reviews & Price

I needed a simple headphone and the shopkeeper pointed me to this device. iBall is a well known brand in India and since I prefer headphones over earphones, I decided to buy it. It cost me Rs. 340/- but the second choice available was of a local brand headphone, for Just Rs. 170/-

First Impression:
The headphone's got nice looks! The plastic body makes this phone a very lightweight headphone so that you don't feel like you've a monkey sitting on your head ( What the heck am I writing?!) This device wins in the looks! The body is plastic-silver in color with iBall logo on both sides and vents for air to keep the speakers cool.

Comfort:
This headphone is very comfortable to wear. As against other headphones, this headphone won't hurt your ears even after 2 hours of continuous use. The cushion padding around the speakers is fine.

Chord:
The length of the chord is around 6ft, sufficiently long enough to give you mobility if you've connected it to the desktop/laptop. The chord ends with two separate jacks for headphones(black) and microphone (pink).

Headphone: The chord has a volume control wheel as well as the microphone. The microphone just works okay. I'd have been happier if the chord had a clip so that I could attach it to my shirt and prevent the mike from wobbling.

Audio Quality:
I used Cowon Jet Audio Basic in Windows Vista. I'm impressed by the audio quality I got from this headset. The beats were crisp and clear and I could clearly listen to the changes I made to the graphic band equalizer. I tried setting the volume to Max on the music player, Windows sound and the headphones as well, however the actual sound never crossed unbearable limits. Very impressive, I must say! The audio is of course sufficiently loud.
