Philips SHN2500 Noise Cancelling Earphones

This when viewed from a distance looks like any other normal earphone but actually its one of the best and the cheapest one of its kind. It has a small plastic cover to cover up the circuit and above which the line splits up for both the ears. The magnet is made of neodymium (a rare kind of metal), while the material for diaphragm (a thin, semi-rigid membrane that vibrates to produce or transmit sound waves) is mylar (Mylar is often used to generically refer to polyester film or plastic sheet. However, it is a registered trademark owned by Dupont Tejjin Films for a specific family of plastic sheet products made from the resin Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET). The true generic term for this material is Polyester Film or Plastic Sheet). The bass is decent. It has a good dynamic range, but the depth and 3Dness is not so good. There is a nit noise when the earphone is just plugged it in your ears. But that vanishes once the music kicked off, so not a negative point. Its cost is at Rs 1,995 and hence it is one of the cheapest one of its kind. So its of course a better buy.
