Are you looking for affordable earphones under Rs. 500? Evidson X55 is a good option.
Evidson is a lesser known brand in India but they make some great affordable earphones. I recently got the Evidson X55 earphone for Rs. 500 from Amazon although the MPR is Rs. 545 on the packaging.
The Evidson X55 earphone comes with a decent no frill packaging without any accessories apart from the ear foam. These can be used with any mobile with a 3.5 mm jack or you can use these with your laptop or a MacBook.
Let’s deep dive into the details for the X55 and see if they are worth the money.
The design for the Evidson X55 earphone is not the in-canal type. These fit in your ear and stay outside the ear canal. You get the ear foams along with the earphone and the foam is not the cheap synthetic type which feels uncomfortable to ear.
In fact, the foam helps to fit the earphones nicely to prevent accidental fall.
I prefer this design over the pure in canal design, it feels a bit open and comfortable. However, a lot of people these days but the in-canal earphones as they usually have a better grip and noise cancellation.
Below is a pure in canal design.
On the other hand, I am still happy to use the Sennheiser MX 470 which has a similar design to the Evidson X55 or the Apple iPods which come with iPhone 6s.
While the noise cancelation is mostly better on the in-canal earphones but if you find that they are not comfortable for you, I would suggest you try these or the above-mentioned earphones from Sennheiser or Apple.
Let’s Rate the Evidson X55 based on various parameters and at the same time not forgetting the price tag of Rs. 500.
Clarity – 3.5/5.0 – I used the evidson to watch the favorite Game of Thrones season and audio was clear and crisp from the Macbook. Also, used it to make calls which are even troublefree without any interference.
Treble – 3.2/5.0 – The earphones comes with good treble with decent frequency range and ability to improve the richness of audio. But don’t expect that you will hear the high’s discernably on these with the instruments differentiating from each other on every note.
Bass – 3.6/5.0 – Having deep Bass is an important factor, probably the most important for many readers. The Evidson X55 offers more bass than my stock earphones which came with Samsung S7.
The bass is deep, however, not overwhelming deep. The thump with differentiating beats which I get from more expensive MX 470 is incomparable but yet it has a good enough bass.
Noise Cancellation – 3.4 /5.0 – The Evidson X55 with the over canal design does not offer much noise cancellation and you can hear feeble ambient sounds if you are in a loud environment with the earphones on.
Sound Quality Richness – 3.5/5.0 – It is most difficult to describe in words but once you listen to a very high-end earphone, you understand how well they handle the soundstage.
These cannot pick up and differentiate the low pitch sounds from different instruments. In the X55 the soundstage and differentiation is average but for the price decent.
Comfort – 3.9/5.0 – I liked the earphones and these are quite ergonomic to wear for long hours without trouble.
Microphone usage 3.9/5.0 – The addition of the mic to this earphone help you answer calls with ease. There is a button placed on the cord that you can use to disconnect the calls easily. Notably, there are no mute or volume up and down buttons.
Cord – 3.8/5.0 – The cord is long and does not get entangled easily when you carry these in your pockets. It is slightly thicker and sturdier but it is better than the thin and excessively flexible cords that come with many earphones.
In fact, the thin cables are more prone to entangling and driving people nuts.
There were non to speak about other than 1 pair of foams which I stated above.
Verdict – Value for Money Sub Rs 500 Earphones
In conclusion, the earphones are good for the price and come with a microphone. The sound profile and listening experience is satisfying for the money paid.
You get what you pay for and that’s a good thing, mostly we don’t get what we pay for. Overall a convivial experience using these $8 or Rs. 500 earphones.
