Did you just judge the in-ears’ quality? Yes, and we did so from a week of good use. The audio quality of the Soul Byrd (₹6,999) is quite amazing for its minuscule size which also compliments its easy-on-the-ear fit. Sleeping with these doesn’t require army discipline and feed it to a MacBook’s audio jack and you can really enjoy that wide soundstage and ear-pleasing details that the Beyerdynamic are renowned for. They come with in-line microphone and audio control buttons but plugging them into a smartphone is just blasphemy. Especially after you realise that the potential of these Byrds comes feeding it more power.
