Best Book­shelf Speak­er Mounts and Stands

Most bookshelf speakers deliver audio delivery to fill up a room compared to portable Bluetooth speakers. It stands true if you use the top-of-the-line speakers. Compared to their portable counterparts, bookshelf speakers have a bigger footprint. So if you can’t adjust them on your desk (or on an actual bookshelf), you can fix them on a wall mount or a floor stand.

Besides letting you have more space on your desk, these mounts let you have the flexibility of moving the speakers in the direction of your choice. When it comes to audio delivery, we all know how direction and placement are important.

If you are looking for some quality bookshelf speaker mounts and floor stands, here are our recommendations. But first,

Installation is plain and simple, and several users have pointed this out. Combining the rubber feet and the cast iron build to ensure that your prized speakers do not topple over.

3. VIDEOSECU ADJUSTABLE HEIGHT SPEAKER STANDS

Base dimensions: Up to 5.5-inch

This stand is equipped with side clamps to lock the speakers in place. Besides that, the padding prevents scratches and scuff marks. Again, there is nifty cable management in place. However, some people have complained of the cable holes being too small.

While the VideoSecu speaker stand has received some rave reviews for its easy assembly and build, it is top-heavy and can wobble if you have hefty speakers.

4. PYLE SPEAKER WALL MOUNT

Base dimensions: Up to 10-inch

If having a wall mount is your idea of a perfect setup, trust the Pyle mount to take care of it. These are simple wall brackets. These brackets do not have dedicated mounts to hold the speakers in place and instead, relies on the built-in silicon pads. That said, this a heavy-duty mount that can easily hold the weight of standard bookshelf speakers.

Surprisingly, you can extend the arm away from the wall by around 11.8 inches.

As we noted above, these are simple mounts and do not have the flexibility to adjust the angle of the speakers. Moreover, a single mount can house only one speaker. Naturally, buying a second mount shoots up the overall cost.

Nevertheless, they have attracted several positive reviews, with people appreciating its durability and sturdiness. Alternatively, you can check out the Wali dual speaker wall mount brackets if you are looking for dedicated mounts with keyhole inserts.

6 Best Pre­mi­um Ear­phones in India That You Can Buy

India Mostly premium audio accessories deliver top quality audio experience. However, that’s not the only feature that you have to look for when buying earphones. There are plenty of other features like comfort, battery life, and the technology used that comes into the picture.

Ear­phones

Well, worry not. We have made a list of the best premium earphones that you can buy. From wired to truly wireless earphones to chic-looking neckbands, we have covered every aspect. Let’s take a look.

1. JBL E25BT WIRELESS IN-EAR HEADPHONES

However, the JBL E25BT doesn’t have any IP rating — they aren’t sweatproof. Though there’s an in-line remote with a mic, there’s another weighted compartment as well. That houses the status LED and a neck-clip to attach to your shirts’ collar for keeping the earphones in place.

Other than that, these headphones deliver a great audio experience for bassheads at the price. Just remember to keep them shielded from sweat and water.

2. ONEPLUS BULLETS WIRELESS

The Bullets Wireless 2 offers a battery life of 14 hours on moderate volumes. And the best part about it is the Warp Charge 30 – OnePlus’ proprietary charging standard. With it, a 10-minute charge gets you approximately 10 hours of playback time.

Also, you get the better Bluetooth range, thanks to Bluetooth 5.0. As far as the sound quality is concerned, it’s up to the mark with deep bass. You also get the advantage of aptX HD. All you have to do is make sure that you are wearing the right fit for the right amount of noise isolation.

3. 1MORE TRIPLE DRIVER EARPHONE

The cable is covered in fabric, which makes these earphones tangle-free. However, these earphones are meant for casual listening. You can’t take them to the gym or for running since they do not carry any Ingress Protection certification.

4. JABRA ELITE 65T

The Jabra Elite 65t are known to produce great audio output with deep and punchy bass. However, the most interesting features are the ones in the companion app. From equalizer settings to adjusting the frequency of HearThrough or selecting from the built-in soundscapes, it lets you do a lot.

These earbuds have physical buttons for track navigation, volume control as well as a multi-functional button. The Elite 65t yields five hours on battery, and the case delivers an additional 10 hours.

5. BOSE SOUNDSPORT FREE

Furthermore, Bluetooth 5.0 ensures top-notch connectivity. The SoundSport Free has a battery life of 5 hours, and the charging case can hold an additional 10 hours of charge.

However, the Bose SoundSport Free earphones are a bit chunky and stick out of the ear. Though they remain fixed to the ear (thanks to the StayHear+ ear tips), the bulky design might give your head a slightly goofy look. The buttons on the buds can be a bit stiff initially.

Overall, these are quality earphones that the sports lover in you will love.

6. SENNHEISER MOMENTUM TRUE WIRELESS

Another significant feature is Transparent Hearing, which picks up ambient noises and plays it back to you. That makes it helpful if you plan to use these earphones in a crowded environment and still want to stay aware of your surroundings.

However, the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless pair is not discreet. On the contrary, they are a tad bigger, which causes them to stick out from the ear.

THE WORLD OF QUALITY MUSIC

These were some of the best premium earphones that you can buy in India. Each comes with their own set of advantage and disadvantage. However, you are likely to get excellent audio quality, if that is your top priority.
