This will block out distractions and prevent sound leakage.

JBL Tune Flex: Alternatives

The price range in which JBL Tune Flex sit is a competitive one. So here are a few alternatives which you can consider before going for the JBL Tune Flex:

Nothing Ear (1): Rs 6,999

tech news

The Nothing Ear (1), launched a year ago, is still one of the coolest looking earbuds out there that also offers a bunch of features. Priced at Rs 6,999 (and sometimes Rs 5,000 with offers), the Nothing Ear 1 TWS come with Active Noise Cancellation, and a dual-driver setup. They feature 11.6mm, dynamic drivers. The earphones support Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity with SBC and AAC codecs.

The earbuds have a battery capacity of 570mAh. It is claimed to offer four hours of battery life with ANC enabled and up to 5.7 hours with ANC turned off. With the charging case combined, users can get up to 34 hours of battery life.

During our review of the Ear 1, we found the design of the earbuds attractive. The case and earbuds are transparent to some extent but not 100 percent. In addition, the stem of Earbuds is transparent on one side, and the other side, though transparent, appears black.

On the other hand, earbuds are made of hard white plastic. The placement of mics, internals, and magnets on the stem used for charging is neatly done and will grab attention. The app is neat and clean, but we felt that an equaliser would have been handy instead of the preset option. Overall, the earbuds are an excellent alternative to the JBL Tune Flex with a slightly better design in our opinion.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro: Rs 7,990

The case of the Galaxy Buds Pro gives you 20 hours of battery life along with eight hours of playback which you get on a single charge. It is dropped down to as low as five hours with ANC switched on always. Audio is handled by a 11nm woofer and 6.5 tweeter in a new dual driver design.

Each earbud is equipped with 3 microphones for active noise cancellation (ANC) and there’s also a Wind Shield Mode for better calling experience. The 3 ANC microphones can intelligently identify when you are talking and automatically switch to ambient mode. This is paired with 360 Audio with Dolby Head Tracking tech for an even immersive experience, which the JBL Tune Flex misses out on. The buds are IPX7 rated as well.

OnePlus Buds Z2: Rs 4,999
