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.
