  1. Hey there

    This is a really impressive list. But i am sure it is not for Indians. Specially not for students. I think I would rather go for 10-20$ headphones. Skullcandy and Philips are really cool choices in the price range. You can also get Apple Earpod for 1500 which is also really amazing.
