In case the battery is dead, you get a 3.5 mm jack auxiliary cable.

2. Mi Super Bass – Wireless

Mi was manufacturing wired earphones and truly wireless earbuds for a while. Now Mi has launched Mi super Bass Headphone and has entered the headphones market. Let’s see how it performed!

Earcups: You get cushioning in the headband area. The foaming is not comfortable at all. It can just hurt your ears after an hour or so. So, it is just suitable for short sessions only. If we talk about the appearance than the look is decent. It can fall off easily if you shake your head, so it is not suitable for fitness freak people.

Drivers and Sound Quality: You get 40 mm, neodymium drivers. The overall sound quality is good but it doesn’t have the bass as the manufacturers promised. Another good news is that it has very little or say, no latency in sound means very little sound delay. The sound gets distorted at high volume. If we talk about microphones than the call quality is satisfactory.

Connectors: Here is good news. It comes with Bluetooth 5.0 version. It means you would get extra battery life, better sound quality, and better connectivity. You also get an aux cable in case you run out of battery. And by this time you should know that the sound quality is better in cable mode than the Bluetooth mode in any headphones.

Drivers and Sound Quality: JBL is known for its sound qualities and you get it here too. It gives you 2 equalizer modes i.e, normal mode and deep bass mode. You can switch between the modes by long-pressing the volume up-down buttons simultaneously. To be honest, the normal mode is already good for bass songs.

The bass gets overpowered in deep bass mode at high volume. Besides, treble is good. Highs and lows are balanced. The mid-range is fine too. Glide 500 is not so loud but the overall sound quality is very good. Microphone quality is satisfactory and the call quality is good.

Connectors:  Unlike Mi Super bass, Infinity Glide 500 does not provide any aux cable and the port. Although 20 hrs battery backup is good, in case your battery is dead then you won’t have cable mode.
