When it comes to buying headphones, most people just go and buy anything that they can afford. Often times wired headphones/earbuds are the go-to choice. They may be good enough for using with your laptop/phone but what if there was a wireless alternative?
Wireless headphones means you can say bye to messy wires, especially those found in wired headphones in general. Wired ones are also very easy to break. Your cat or any other pet could claw or chew the wires. Trip over the wire, pull it when its stuck and that’s it, no more working headphones.
Sure, the wireless headphones come with their own pet peeves – battery life, quality, etc.
But if you want to take a plunge to wireless headphones, these are the 5 wireless headphones that you can get in Pakistan. We’ve kept this list generalized and suitable for all price points, features and budgets.
So lets dig in.
1. Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H7
These pair of headphones are the best of the best out there. Praised for their premium build quality, crisp and accurate sound quality with good amounts of bass, these are better than the Sennheisers out there.
In case you’re wondering, the controls are on the side and are touch sensitive.
Price is the only downside here as this costs a hefty Rs 50,000 or above locally.
It makes no compromises on comfort and battery life as well. The battery can last more than 20 hours on a single charge. An extra cable with a 3.5mm jack also comes with the Beoplay H7 in case you’re out of battery or don’t have a Bluetooth connection available.
Price: Rs. 57,000
2. Jabra Move Wireless
The name Jabra may not be familiar to the laymen out there not knowing much about the world of audio hardware makers.
But here’s why you must check them out – this one is for those who are looking for the best value for their money. The quality these offer are on par with the greats out there although not on the same level as the Beoplay H7 mentioned earlier.
Quality that compares to Sennheisers and JBL with this kind of price is a must buy.
Battery life for these headphones is also pretty good with 12 days stand by time and 8 hours of constant music playback time. An auxiliary cable is also shipped with these headphones in case you run out of battery.
Price: Rs 7,100-9,000 (depends on retailer)
3. JBL Synchros E40BT
JBL is a famous brand name in the audio world with a history of good consumer level headphones. These are no exception and don’t compromise much in terms of quality.
The Synchros E40 claims to offer a stellar battery life. JBL claims that it lasts 16 hours while playing music. Bass is the focus with these headphones and they don’t compromise on comfort either. The price however is higher than the Jabra Move mentioned above however you know what you’re paying for with these pair of cans.
Price: Rs. 16,000
4. Skullcandy Hesh 2
What does something called “Skullcandy” bring to the table you might ask? Why style of course.
Skullcandy offers customization with colors and patterns of all sorts including camo patterns for the cups and different patterns and formations for the pads and the head bands. The sound quality is no slouch either and it offers clarity and bass reproduction comparable to the likes of JBL.
Like the previous 3 pairs of headphones, these come with an aux cable as well. They call it the “backup aux cable” in case you run out of batteries and such. On the topic of battery, Skullcandy claims that the Hesh 2 can provide 15 hours of music playback when fully charged.
Price: Rs. 14,000 (varies at different retail outlets)
5. Audionic Blue Beats B-777
If you don’t want to spend too much on a pair of headphones or if you are on a budget, these headphones are for you.
These are just a regular pair of headphones albeit wireless. They last for 10 hours according to Audionic. Whether this is standby time or music playback is not mentioned. They are good for anyone who are looking to get on the wireless revolution and that too without spending a pretty hefty amount on it.
Price: Rs. 3,200
