Play’s brand-new wireless headphones sound fantastic, have long battery life and impressive noise-cancellation
Back in the 80s and 90s, most people preferred to listen to music on speakers; a Sony deck music system or a two-in-one portable music system from Sony or Philips that would play audio cassettes was a prized possession at that time. Cut to present. Headphones have evolved to become one of the most popular commercial audio products today. There are numerous types of headphones available such as around-ear, over-ear, in-ear, from numerous brands who know that headphones are an important part of the everyday lives of millions of people around the world. This market segment is hot, fast-growing and rapidly evolving.
Sensing a market opportunity, Gurgaon-based Play, co-founded by Vikas Jain (co-founder of Micromax), in 2019 along with his school friend Sandeep Banga, has debuted two wireless headphones that boast top-notch audio performance.
