"The German brand Sennheiser, tries to give you the best your budget can buy, in the form of the CX 180.
But, If you are a JBL fanatic and love your punchy sound, the T150A is a great buy."
SHADY GREY OR AN BLACK AND WHITE?
The JBL - T150A is perfect for the music buff who not only wants music on the go but also prefer the convenience of answering calls, all on a budget!
The JBL - T150A, unlike the CX 180 comes in two colour options: White and Black. The design along with the colour options give them quite the classic look.
Both the colours are complimented with a black cord which is 1.1m long and consists of an inline one-button remote and mic. Answer calls, play/ pause your music - On the go. The buck stops there as there are no controls for managing the volume. Does that make a big difference? Your call.
SENNHEISER'S TWO YEAR WARRANTY VS JBL'S ONE YEAR WARRANTY
When it comes to sound, CX 180's are biased towards bass. But Indians as a community are a happy bunch of bass-lovers and Sennheiser has capitalised on this by designing these to cater that very whim.
Regardless of its heavy bass, the audio is appreciably clear at lower volumes. But as one increases the volume, the bass does tend to become overwhelming. The mids and highs sound coloured due to the overpowering bass but aren't completely ignored. All in all, Sennheiser does try its best to cater to local sensibilities at this given price point and it is definitely an effort worthy of praise.
THE SENNHESER CX 180 AND THE JBL T150A DELIVER BASS BIASED AUDIO
What can you expect from an earphone whose packaging itself says bass heavy? That's how JBL-T150A are. Just like CX180, these heavily leans towards the lower end too. It delivers JBL's signature sound with an extended frequency response. The earphones drivers generally deliver precise, powerful sound for an exceptional listening experience, however, tones get muffled at higher volumes.
Some might consider the bass on these deep and powerful, while others will find to be too overwhelming. JBL has yet again managed to combine style with decent audio quality.
To conclude sonic quality, the Sennheiser CX 180 undoubtedly boasts of a much sonic output as compared to the JBL T150A. Both these earphones do not come with a soundstage that is worth mentioning about. We should definitely not compare them with something that a 2000 rupee product can offer.
If you are looking to experience music with pure audio bliss, then both these earphones will not serve your preference. However, if you are tied down by budget, then by all means, go for one of these.
If you are searching for a durable piece of earphone purely for listening to music on the go, then the Sennheiser CX 180 should be your pick. On the other hand, if making a style statement along with the JBL sound signature is your thing, with of course a handy mic and remote then the JBL - T150a should do.
