If you are not an audiophile, and are looking to buy a decent pair of budget headphones, the JBL T-150A is something you should definitely consider. Surprisingly, it delivers a bit more than what you would expect from a pair of earphones in this price range. I recently got myself a JBL T-150A from Amazon and here is everything you need to know about it. I got the black variant, but it’s available in a few other color choices. Here goes the detailed review.
Who is it for?
If you are a casual music lover, JBL T-150A would surprise you with its crisp and clear audio quality. These are budget headphones and not for you, if you are one of those audiophiles who want to differentiate every note from the music.

Design and Build quality
Design is the first thing that will strike you about these cool and stylish pair of headphones, It has got a very ergonomic design that looks and feels good when you use them. The material is plastic just like how you’d expect from headphones in this price range, but it feels solid and you can tell that it’s made to last. The quality of the cord is commendable and it feels really thick and tough. I would say the length of the cord is just perfect, neither too long nor short. The silicone earbuds are of good quality too. The 3.5 mm jack is gold plated. JBL has done a really great job with the build quality of these headphones.
JBL T-150A comes with mic and remote, which means you can have complete hands-free experience while attending calls or changing the music track. It has just one button for a variety of tasks. This button can be used to attend/cut calls. While playing music, pressing it once will play/pause the music, pressing twice will skip to the next song and pressing it thrice will take you back to the previous track.
I must say that I am really impressed with the audio quality of the JBL T-150A. Despite being a pair of budget headphones, it gives out crisp and clear sound. Belonging to JBL’s purebass series, they do have good bass output. The sound is a bit on the treble side although the added bass makes the combination perfect for music. The bass is not overpowering though, so if you are looking for very high bass, these are not for you. The sound isolation is really good with the T-150A and you should be careful if you use them in risky environments.
Pros and Cons
- Ergonomic design
- High quality build
- Perfect bass
- Comes with mic and remote
- Treble is on the high side
- No volume control buttons
The JBL T-150A is surprisingly good in every aspect for its budget price range. I have previously used the other best sellers in this price range like the Senheiser CX 180, but the JBL T-150A is definitely better than them in terms of design, build and audio performance. It is arguably the best pair of in-ear headphones you can get below 1000 INR. If you are looking for on-the-ear headphones, you can give Sony MDR ZX110
