Astrum Raga Tune HS221 Headset
Light Weight, Stylish and Well Priced.
Compatible Devices - Smartphone, Tablets, MP3, MP4, Laptop, PC
Day before yesterday, my PHILIPS SBC HL140 Headphone stopped working. It was night and I was forced to use my half destroyed Laptop Internal Speakers (now it is fully destroyed, My Laptop Speakers no more work). As soon as it was next day and 10 AM I rushed to buy a new Headphone.
I told shopkeeper not to show bulky ones which cover whole ear. I hate those – too heavy. I also asked for the cheapest Headphone but there were none. Yes I like cheap headphones. I checked all the option in the store. The least priced was Rs 400 – Astrum Raga Tune HS221 Headset. The other option I liked was Rs 700 something headphone. I decided to get Astrum Raga Tune HS221 Headset – Orange Color. None other color option were there. I would have liked the Silver one.
After using Astrum Raga Tune HS221 Headset for a day now, I like it. This is first time I have come across this Brand – astrum. I got the price discounted to Rs 380. The design is good, while design is never a deciding factor for me, I specially wanted to say this. It is almost as light weight as my old PHILIPS SBC HL140 Headphone. There is only one cable going to and from headset, there is less risk of getting tangled. Old Philips headphone had wire running to either side of headphones and wire was thin – I was always worried they will snap. In the end I think something like that had happened.
I watched some movies, listened to some music and watched YouTube Videos with this new headset. The sound quality is good and it is comfortable. Using it for long hours did put pressure on my ears maybe because it is new and I think with time it will be a bit loose. This Headset comes with a nose-cancelling microphone located on the wire. This headset is meant to be used with your Mobile Phone as an upgrade to the default earphone but it is also compatible with Tablets, MP3, MP4, Laptop and PC as it is inserted into 3.5 mm jack (Is 2.5 mm jack still in use in any device?). Anyways I bought it to use it with my Laptop.
Note: I do not use earphone etc with my Mobile. I do not make too many call in crowded and noisy area so it never bothered me. I did play with earphone with my very first mobile but never after that, I do not even listen to music on my smartphone.
What I like most about Astrum Raga Tune HS221 Headset is that it is light weight & stylish yet well priced. It is compatible with Smartphone, Tablets, MP3, MP4, Laptop and PC. So far I have not encountered anything negative.
