Binatone who has the right to design, manufacture and market certain Motorola accessories has launched the new Moto Earbuds 2 at Rs 799. The in-ear type earphones will be available for purchase on Flipkart and Amazon apart from various offline retail stores. Moto Earbuds 2 comes in White, Red, Blue, Black, Slate and Purple colour options.
To make this product available in India, Binatone has joined hands with Motorola’s national importer i.e. Shyam Telecom. Business Head at Shyam Telecom has stated,"The India mobile accessory market is under-penetrated, and has few credible and universally adored brands like Moto which are focusing on providing the fast-growing smartphone user base an interesting portfolio of Mobile accessories which further accentuate the Smartphone experience."
The main highlight of the device is the IP54 certification which makes this earphones water resistant and splash proof. It can take in slight drizzle or maybe sweat but you surely can’t go swimming with these earphones. There are a couple of 10nm drivers inside coupled with some noise isolation functionality as well.
Further, we get an in-line microphone and remote to take and end calls and fiddle between the music playback. There is a 1.2mm long cable and a 3.5 mm headphone jack which surprisingly is not gold-plated which is better for durability. We get two extra ear tips of different size, as per your requirements
In this price category we a bunch of options including Sennheiser's best seller CX 180 and JBL C100SI, both of which are priced under Rs 1,000.
