2. JBL T110BT

Runner-Up Pick
Runner-Up Pick
  • Best for indoor use
  • Trusted brand factor
  • 1-year warranty
JBL is a very popular audio related equipment manufacturer that has won many accolades for its best in class earphones, Bluetooth speakers and headphones.

The T110BT from JBL is a budget wireless Bluetooth earphone that features the widely acclaimed JBL Pure Bass feature for clean and rich bass with zero artificiality.

The simple look and feel..

The JBL T110BT resembles most of the other wireless earphones in the market.

There are no gimmicks added to the hardware.

Everything works as advertised.

The Flat tangle free wire is comfortable when wrapped around the neck.

Also, the earpiece has a magnetic lock feature that will keep them together without dangling around your neck when not in use.

The only gripe we have with the design of this earphone is the length of the cable. It seems a bit too much for our liking.

It sounds like… a typical JBL product..

As the name suggests, the Pure Bass feature can be felt right from the first song you’re enjoying with this product. The bass is clean and distortion free even at maximum volume.

The vocals are crisp and clear.

We tested this product with songs from various genres of music and found that it does justice to the price tag.

However, at times we felt that the treble is a bit weaker. But this may be due to our listening setup and you might not feel it after all.

The Extra features

Even though the JBL T110BT doesn’t have the Active noise cancellation, the snug fit of the earpiece into the ear canal does help it to have some sort of immunity from the outside noise.

Since the inline remote is a separate piece of hardware, the buttons are easily accessible.

The mic on the inline remote is pretty sensitive and picks up our voice easily even when surrounded by background noise.

Battery life..

Since the JBL T110 is very lightweight, the company had to make some compromise with the battery capacity.

Luckily, the reduction is not much pronounced.

This wireless earphone has a 120 mAh Li-ion battery inside the inline remote that can be charged via the supplied micro USB cable.

The battery lasts for about 6 hours of music listening with 75% volume levels.

This may vary according to the type of music played and the volume levels.

Should you buy it or not?

You should – if you are that person who values the brand factor.

The sound output from the product is decent and you won’t notice any sound distortion even at max volume levels.

If you don’t mind the average battery life at the expense of a lightweight wireless Bluetooth earphone, this is one of the best choices out there.

The simple yet elegant form factor felt really pleasing to our eyes at the first look.

The flat style cables are of apt length so that they don’t tangle around your neck unnecessarily.

Since the earpiece is designed in such a manner that it fits exactly into the ear canal, the sound output seems really good.

The loudness levels are adequate so does the tonal balance between the bass and the treble.

The CSR chip inside features the CVC 6.0 Noise cancellation feature built-in.

This also enhances the immersive music listening experience even when you are in the middle of a chaotic environment.

The plus and the minus..

Let’s talk about the positives at first.

Chkokko has taken utmost care in designing this wireless earphone to be as durable as possible.

The sensitive circuitry inside and outside the case has been coated with sweat-proof nano coating to prevent damage.

The hydrophobic coating also helped this product to achieve IPX5 certification as well.

The built-in microphone is of decent quality and we didn’t face any trouble while attending voice calls.

The only negative we felt was that the cable is unnecessarily long. This makes certain discomfort while engaged in strenuous activities such as push-ups.

The longevity…

The 100 mAh Li-ion battery on this earphone performed outstandingly on our stress tests.

The battery lasted for a good 7-8 hours while playing music continuously at about 60-70% volume.

End notes

The Chkokko Mercury M2 is a great choice for a budget Bluetooth earphone priced under Rs.2,000.

The surprisingly great battery life and the bass rich sound makes it a worthy product for your money.
