Worried how much I can leverage features of Galaxy buds 2 on OP 7 Pro (not even considering iPhone to befriend it well). The features like EQ and all that will be Samsung phone dependent, right?

If you have an android phone then no problem but yeah, you wont be able to use the features on an iPhone. You will have to use an Android phone every time to make any changes to the EQ.

As per reviews Buds 2 is pretty generic and inferior to both OP Buds Pro and Pixel Buds A-Series in general (sound quality and mic performance + ANC). So that’s out 

I don't know what to believe anymore to be honest. There are reviews which say that the Nothing Ear 1 blows away the competition and is better than Airpods etc. Also, I have seen many positive reviews of the Buds 2 so yeah it is pretty difficult to know these days which is better just going by reviews.

Saw you have an ATH-M50X, have you tried it with you iPhone? Was it able to drive it well?

I have ATH-M50X but there is no 3.5mm jack on my iPhone and no adapter, so never tried them. I use them with iPad and Mac and they work flawlessly.

Difference between studio monitors and a soundbar+woofer setup in the under 10k budget range? 

Will mainly connect to a monitor through AUX and would use it for movies/tv shows + PS5 + music at times.

 

Studio monitors will be neutral tuned, and generally the throw in budget studio monitors is more in the front, less on sides. 

 

SB+W setup is more mass appeal if you are not an audiophile.

Guys - both phones are here. I had to unbox them for Flipkart's video recording done by the delivery guy - and now I'm confused about which is 64GB and which is 128GB.

 

Don't want to f**k up the setup and have to do it again 

 

They're both black iPhone 12s

Not really an audiophile though but just want decent sound and volume should be enough to cover the bedroom only. Will the studio monitors be able to cover or is a SB+W better for that?

They are doing video recording of unboxing right at the spot? That's new.

yes. I think a bunch of people must have raised concern that the box was already open, or something wrong with the internals or something along those lines.

No idea how legitimate the concerns are, but I do not mind this. This way, both you and the delivery person know its all good.

 

In case you do find a problem later, you can still get it replaced in the return window as usual.

Only case where it could be a problem is if phone is a gift or you want it to be opened later. The disclaimer was there when I bought the phones though, so I expected this.

 

I don't order from FK normally, so this was new to me as well. Fairly smooth though, no issues.

Those having used any quality wireless headphones can chime in this-

I view wireless headphones/earphones as consumable commodity. The reason for this is-
1. They are not repair-able.

2. They lose battery capacity and that simply makes them useless.

3. There is no way to find the battery capacity (speaking for apple airpods), so pricing them is gamble.

Why do 2 year used Airpods still command 5k pricepoint while they should absolutely be worth near 0?

Personal Anecdote: Got apple airpods 3 years back for 9k(flipkart,bbd,axis discount). They stopped holding charge for more than 15 mins in nearly 18 months. Just 1 month before this event, they were giving around 1.8-2hrs. Very hard to gauge battery capacity.
