Brainwavz xFit XF200 is built for sports or athletic people. Before we talk about product, lets talk about the box packaging and in box accessories . When it comes to box packaging , Brainwavz scores 5/5 . It comes with a hard carry case (which I am in love with), 7 pairs of silicon eartips and a pair of Comply foam tip (which I use) . So this makes total of 8 ear tips. Great work!! Also it comes with 2 years of warranty which is again a great thing .
Build and Design –
It has over the ear design which is helpful to sports person or anyone who goes for jogging or running as it is pretty firm and will not come out easily. It has awkward shape at the ear-tip and you will have to do quite a work out to fit it properly for the first time. Also if your ears are smaller then it might hurt you as it has rectangular sharp edges. The build quality of earbuds feel cheap as it is made up of transparent plastic which in my opinion does not look good.
It has Y-shape design and the cable near earbuds is double coated to prevent it from damage. It has a in line microphone which lets you take calls and also you can control volume of the songs or next / previous song. At the junction it has a solid binder and feels sturdy . For the cable quality I would give 3.5/5 as it is not that much flexible. It has angles 3.5 mm audio jack which is gold plated .So overall build quality is decent although it could have been better.
Sound Quality –
If you love bass then these are not for you. The sound quality is really good and crystal clear. The highs are somewhat on the higher side , mids are good and lows are also acceptable. If you love to listen to classical music then definitely these are for you. One thing to keep in mind that you will have to search for the right ear tip for better sound quality. Audio via microphone is great, no issues with the mic. So for sound quality I am giving 4/5 and for bass 2/5.
Value for money –
Brainwavz xfit xf200 are available for Rs 1900 on Amazon and I think they are slightly overpriced as you can get sony xb30/50 in this price range. But this pricing can be justified due to their in box accessories and 2 years of warranty.
