Bangalore, November 9 2015:
If there's one thing I hate, it's using the tiny in-earpieces that phone makers throw in free. Our ears are differently shaped, so how come they assume one size fits all?
So I am thrilled that Delhi -based QHMPL has launched a pair of wired, on-the-ear stereo headphones, QHM 485, with the neck/head band, cleverly foldable, so that it collapses into a very small-n-light package indeed.
The makers have added noise cancelling functions to the tiny mike on the cable. There's no volume control so you have to use the controls on the phone or tablet or MP3 player, you are connecting. But the music comes over rich and loud.
At just Rs 299, this is a great gift for your friends -- or for yourself this week (shut out all that phataka noise)! Shop carefully: on major online shopping sites it is even cheaper! Anand Parthasarathy
