    This by far worst earphone Nirvana 525 ANC
    ANC Performance (0/5): These earphones’ claimed ANC capability of up to 42db is their biggest selling point. Unfortunately, the truth falls far short of expectations. Even with ANC turned on, background noises like a ticking clock can still be heard, greatly reducing its effectiveness. Build Quality (1/5): The build quality is appalling for an earphone that costs Rs. 2500. It reminds me more of a cheap earphone that you might buy for Rs. 500 on a local bus. A major letdown is the lack of premium feel and durability. Call Quality Issues (1/5): When making or receiving phone calls, an odd noise or distorted music may be audible. This interference seriously disrupts the quality of the call as a whole. Usefulness (1/5): The earphones have a lot of buttons, but their functions are ambiguous and lack clear indications. It becomes difficult to tell whether the device is in pairing mode or not. The user experience is hampered by this ambiguity. Compatibility Bugs: In my personal experience with the Boat Nirvana 525 Earphones, connectivity problems occurred when I used them in dual pairing mode with a MacBook Pro M1 and an Asus Rog 5. Specifically, the Bluetooth mouse that was attached to my laptop began to lag and stutter. The product’s usefulness and convenience are compromised by this bug. Return and Replacement Policy: Please be aware that the company only provides replacements, not refunds, should you have any problems with the product or decide to return it. My knowledge indicates that there is a high likelihood that the replacement unit will experience the same issues. After trying the Realme Buds 2 Pro ANC and the OnePlus Buds U, I decided to try the boat nirvana 525 ANC Earphones in search of something new. Unfortunately, it was a waste of money. From poor ANC performance to poor build quality and call issues, these earphones fall short of expectations. Given the available alternatives on the market, it would be prudent to investigate other options that offer better value for your money.
