For those of you who are unaware, Blaupunkt is a well-known German audio brand that was cruising in popularity during the 90s in India for their expert tuned audio devices for cars, and home audio. With the ever-increasing growth of China brands and technologies, the last 20 odd years have been devoid of Blaupunkt because they simply could not compete. Now though, it's a little different, Blaupunkt has also bought into the Chinese technologies output, investing in audio-ware that is made in China, and then applied in their own audio-devices. Don't get me wrong, that isn't a bad thing at all. Most companies do that, including Apple. There isn't any downfall in quality either. It's good to see this German outlet, get back into the game, because honestly back then, owning a Blaupunkt car stereo and “music system” was an admirable feat.
Coming back to this very product. The headphones are good. They aren't great, but they are good. For its price, the ANC isn't anything to brag about, because you'll mostly not be using it (It's so bad), but then again, you are only paying around 3k, there isn't much you should be expecting in the first place. With a db range of what they claim is 25, this will barely do anything. You'd rather stick to its noise isolation, that it's managed to design decently well.
The build is also quite good. An inner metal frame gives it a boost of sturdiness. The outer plastic seems like it also does the job quite well. The cushion padding is soft, but the overall tightness that you'll experience might be a little unpleasant. It may be a matter of getting used to (like me), or it might not strike your fancy at all.
The navigation button also appears to be average, nothing exceptional there. There's a voice that tells you, the device is on or is being shut off, which, I felt, was a thoroughly cheap move. The audio quality of the voice is so bad, I really don't want to comment on it, you'll have to experience it yourself to understand, but these are the things you usually sacrifice for how much you're paying.
The sound quality, excluding the ANC mode, is where this headphone shines. If you're just looking for something that sounds good, without peering into the rest of its features, you probably won't be too disappointed. This being said, I'll have to add that they're on the bass heavier side, it's pre-equalised, so nothing you play on these, will sound flat.
Overall, again, for its price, I don't think you should complain, although there are several things that you could complain about.
A solid 7/10.
