FOR COUNTRY MUSIC FANS
IIn the dearth of budget earphones that score high on build quality and sound, the Nirvanaa Tres from boat is a pleasant surprise. The red and black coloured earphones look stylish and the rubber cable is sturdy and easy to untangle. There is an in-line remote for answering calls, controlling volume and changing tracks. It comes with a carrying pouch and five sets of ear tips. The angular earbuds fit in comfortably and stayed there. Unlike what boat claims, the earphones do not really isolate noise.
The 1More’s Triple Driver headphone we reviewed recently had impressive sound quality. With boat Nirvanaa, I expected the same. The company has added two 6-mm dynamic HD drivers that act like woofers for producing low frequencies, and a balanced armature driver that act like a small tweeter for creating surround sound.
I tested this earphone by playing different genres of music, transcribing interviews and answering calls. Of the various tracks I played – including ‘Something Just Like This’ by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay, ‘Blue Eyes Crying in The Rain’ by Willie Nelson and ‘Afreen Afreen’ by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan – ‘Blue Eyes’ sounded the best. The vocals were loud and pronounced. Overall, the sound was clear but the treble and bass were not definitive. Call clarity was clear and the other side could hear me properly.
A pretty good experience overall with clear sound and no distortion at high volumes.
Although the company has priced this earphone at ` 3,990, it is retailing for ` 2,982 on Amazon India. For the price it comes for, this is a good buy, especially if you are into country music. But if you enjoy listening to rock or heavy beats, then the Nirvanaa Tres is not for you.
