4. ZEBRONICS ZEB-Thunder

ZEBRONICS ZEB-Thunder

Our third pick is the Zebronics Zeb Thunder wireless Bluetooth headphones. Until now, the headphones that we discussed were wired headphones, but if you are looking for wireless headphones, then you should not look anywhere but at Zebronics Zeb Thunder. The Zeb Thunder from Zebronics is the perfect blend of usability and audio quality. The Zeb Thunder is one of the best Zebronics products to date and if you are fed up with the tangling wires, you can surely opt for this one.

Let’s start with the build quality. The Zebronics Zeb Thunder is made up entirely of plastic because of which the headphones are lightweight at only 270 grams. You can wear these headphones all day long and you will still not find them to be heavy or uncomfortable. The adjustable headband is also padded adequately adding to the comfort levels. The ear cups are sufficiently large and they would fit on your ears comfortably. The ear cups too are padded well because of which you can wear them for extended durations of time. However, they might get a bit warm with extended use. The design of the headphones has been kept minimalistic and the logo of Zebronics is present on the center of each ear cup.

Talking about audio performance, the Zebronics Zeb Thunder is definitely not the best headphones in this segment. Although the headphones are adequately loud thanks to the 40mm drivers, the audio seems to be a bit muffled. The bass is decent but it is not recommended for you if you love high bass. Connectivity is a strong point of this headphone and you get three options; Bluetooth pairing, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a Micro SD card support. The mic of the headphone is a letdown and you would surely notice when you are attending calls with the headphones on.

5. Leaf Bass Bluetooth Headphones

Leaf Bass Bluetooth Headphones

Leaf Bass Wireless Bluetooth Headphones is our fifth choice in the list of best headphones under 1000. Although the brand is relatively new in the market, it has managed to create a decent user base thanks to its quality products.

First things first, the design of the Leaf Bass headphones is minimalistic and it looks decent at the best. The Leaf logos are mounted on the ear cups and there is a BASS branding on the inner sides of the headphones. The ear cups are sufficiently large and are padded with Faux leather. To be honest, the padding is comfortable but it certainly looks cheap. The headphones also feature an adjustable headband that is also padded. The headphones should be comfortable even when you have been wearing them for extended durations of time. Although, it might get a bit warm with extended use.

The Leaf Bass is definitely not the best-sounding headphones in this segment. The audio is adequately loud thanks to its 40mm drivers and you should not find any troubles in listening to music or calls. The padding on the ear cups certainly helps in insulating the noise, but it does not cancel it completely. Talking about audio quality, the Leaf Bass’ performance is below average at the max. The bass is not sufficient, and the audio seems to be a bit muffled during the highs and lows at full volume.

The Leaf Bass features dual wired as well as wireless connectivity options. You can either connect the headphones to your PC or Mobile via Bluetooth or you can also use a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, the headphones have a decent battery life of about 10 hours which means that you can use the headphones for a considerable period of time before running out of juice.

6. Zebronics Zeb Bang

Zebronics Zeb Bang

The final product on the list is Zebronics Zeb Bang. The Zebronics Zeb Bang is a budget foldable Bluetooth headphone that offers a great battery life and practicality. However, the Zebronics Zeb Bang is definitely not the best sounding or best-looking headphones in this segment. However, in terms of features, the Zebronics Zeb Bang definitely ranks above when compared to most other headphones in the segment.

Let’s discuss the sound quality first. The Zebronics Zeb Bang is powered by powerful 40mm drivers and a frequency range of 20 to 20k Hz. Needless to say, the Zebronics Zeb Bang is sufficiently loud, and taking calls should not be an issue. However, the headphones are not recommended for gamers or Bassheads because the bass is visibly lacking on the headphone. Else wise, the headphones are good for normal activities like taking calls, listening to music, watching movies.

Next, the design and comfort of the headphones. First things first, the Zebronics Zeb Bang is not too comfortable because the ear cups are small although they are padded well. The adjustable headband helps you find the perfect fit and it is padded which means that it would be comfortable even during those long music sessions. However, we did not find the design of the Zeb Bang to be exceptional. The large chunky grills on the exterior of the ear cups do not look elegant and give a cheap feel to the headphones. Even though the headphones are made up entirely of plastic except for some areas where metal is used, the headphones weigh over 320 grams. It makes the Zeb Bang one of the heaviest headphones in the segment. Additionally, the Zebronics Zeb Bang is offered in 5 different color variants and you can easily find the one that you find the most attractive.

Pros & Cons:

  • Stylish design and decent build
  • Connectivity
  • Low Price
  • Decent sound quality
  • Not very comfortable (bulky)
  • Average build quality
  • Not for bass lover

Specification:

  • Type: Over-Ear, Wireless, Wired
  • Drivers: 40mm
  • Frequency: 20Hz – 20kHz
