Audio device-maker MuveAcoustics recently launched the new Drive series in-ear earphones in India. It costs Rs 1,999 and is currently available offline at Croma stores and also Amazon India.
The company claims the new Drive series earphones offers best audio with visually appealing design language in its class. We have been using the Muve Acoustics Drive in-ear gear for almost a month. Here's our take on the new MuveAcoustics Drive in-ear earphones and see if it is worth buying.
Considering the price range it gets sold, the materials used in the MuveAcoustics Drive in-ear earphones are praiseworthy. The ear-piece is made of sturdy plastic and is attached with equally good flat thin wires made of high-grade smooth rubber. During the elasticity trial, we tried stretching the audio cord and it succeeded. It showed no signs of losing its shape.
Also, the in-built remote control, which comes with the play/pause, volume rockers and mic, placed in the left audio cord, is also sturdy and promises to last the warranty period.
Earpiece features ergonomic design with angular tilt to sit comfortably in both the sides of the ear and as far as external look is concerned, it's an eye candy. The silver-hued earphones' head comes with a well designed Muve logo. It also comes on the audio jack pin, as well.
The dark blue coloured flat rubber joint between the earpiece and audio cord looks visually pleasing, as well.
Dimensions: 25.0 x 25.0 x 13.5 mm
Though there is no special feature in the MuveAcoustics Drive in-ear headphone, its in-built remote control works flawlessly with most devices available in the market, be it the Microsoft Windows PCs, Apple iOS-based iPhones and Google's Android mobiles.
Even for first time user, it's a very easy to operate key functions of earphones. It comes with three buttons-- + (Volume up), play/pause, - (Volume down), placed in order of top to bottom. user can also answer phone, as it has in-house mic and can answer or hang up the call by pressing the play/pause button in the middle.
Once I got a hang off it, I was able to perform all functions without looking at the remote.
As far as, audio quality is concerned, it fares well and is on par with other rival brands in its class.
Sensitivity: 102+/- 3dB (decibels) at 1KHz
Impedance: 16(Ω) ohm
Frequency response: 20-20 KHz
MuveAcoustics Drive series ear-phone package comes with silicone-based cushion and is very flexible, slips in the ear with ease and locks. If audio is played loud enough, will completely numbs the outside noise.
[Disclaimer: We urge our readers not to play music in loud mode, as it will make you lose focus, especially if you are driving or crossing road and unintentionally harm yourself and others.]
In the package, two extra pairs of silicone cushions offering large and small sizes.
[Note: medium size comes pre-attached with the earphone]
Also, it comes with a handy little pouch with magnet-based lock to safe guard the earphones.
For its sub-Rs 2,000 price-tag, MuveAcoustics Drive series (model-ID MA-1000SB) is a worthy earpiece. Key aspects, which impressed us was the cool design language and sturdy build quality. Though it does not have a 'wow' factor in terms audio quality, it is on par with rival brands of its class. If people are looking for good pair of earphones for smartphones and music players under Rs 3,000 price-range, MuveAcoustics Drive earphone is a smart buy.

If you’re a fan of Virat Kohli, this app might just be the best thing out there! Here’s why.
Celebrity apps aren’t a novel affair. Consider this: in 2016, out of the 100 people who made it to Forbes’ Celebrity list, 30 had their own apps. Surely, the percentage has improved over time. The number of celebs has gone up too.
Modern-day celebs attach a lot of importance to “reaching out” to fans in more engaging ways. Sometimes, they even prefer their own platforms over traditional media to make important announcements. For instance, South African cricketer AB De Villiers announced his retirement from the game through a short video on his app. Global media outlets picked up the news much later.
In India, cricketers and Bollywood stars are the most sought-after celebrities. There is a growing market for celebrity apps in the country. And stars are out to tap into that.
In 2016, Sonam Kapoor was the first Bollywood star to launch her own app. It was modelled pretty much on Kim Kardashian’s official app, which has over a million users and is one of the top celeb apps worldwide. Several other film stars including Salman Khan, Alia Bhatt and Sunny Leone subsequently launched their personal apps.
Among cricketers, Sachin Tendulkar started the trend in 2017, when he launched 100 MB - an app that keeps fans abreast of all developments in his post-retirement life. From announcing his support for various public initiatives to posting brand endorsement videos and conducting live fan interactions, Sachin does it all on 100 MB.
And now, it’s Virat Kohli’s turn - the current poster boy of Indian cricket.
Virat launched his official app last week to mark his thirtieth birthday. Incidentally, this is also the year when he completes a decade in international cricket. Hence, it made for a perfect occasion to roll out a gift for fans.
However, at the very outset, the Virat Kohli Official App ran into a controversy (which erupted out of a comment made by the cricketer in response to a fan tweet). But that didn’t dampen user ratings. The app is rated 4.8 out of 5 and has recorded over 50,000 Play Store downloads in a week. Until yesterday, it was available only in India, but has now been rolled out worldwide.
All celeb apps have some common elements like videos, photos, wallpapers, social media posts, trivia contests and news updates. Virat’s app adds a fascinating element into the mix - ecommerce. (More on that later)

This is what makes the launch of MuveAcoustics such an exciting development. Backed by Zeeva’s 30+ years of domain expertise, the brand is providing consumers with acoustic solutions designed specifically to deliver the best sound quality. Having been associated with it since the very beginning, I know first-hand the kind of appeal its diverse and innovative products hold for people of my generation"
The #InsideIsEverythingcampaign created by TBWA\Indiawill be showcasing the struggles faced by Virat during his awe-inspiring journey to sporting pinnacle.Virat is not only a mega athlete but also a huge icon for youths worldwide. The 3 minutes film is a celebration of what’s inside him. It explores the thought that what’s inside us orchestrates what we do on the outside. It is true of us and also MuveAcoustics’s high-performance audio gear. The campaign took six months from ideation to execution. It was developed after an in-depth understanding of Virat’s life thus far and includes direct inputs from Virat himself. The intent was to tell an authentic story about Virat and not get lost in the sea of celebrity advertising.
Announcing the campaign, Nitin Butani, vice president Zeeva, said, “TBWA\ India’s strategy backed by relevant insights and superlative creativity has allowed us to make an impactful entry in the Indian market. The entire team at TBWA\India and Boot Polissh Films executed our vision flawlessly and we are delighted to have the opportunity to share an authentic story.”
Parixit Bhattacharya, managing partner-creative TBWA said, “I love Nitin and Akshay’s vision for MuveAcoustics. They have piercing clarity about where the brand should be. We wanted to tell an authentic story with a voice that was distinct. When I narrated the script to Nitin, he said he had goosebumps. That point onwards we knew we had something we could really play with. I must acknowledge the unwavering dedication of all at Boot Polishh throughout the project, especially Shujaat. We also spent a considerable amount of time on the music strategy. Eventually, Stealth’s Judgement Day seemed to be the track that gave the film another layer and the right atmosphere.Being an audio gear brand music was of paramount importance.”
ShujaatSaudagar, the director of the MuveAcoustics brand film said, “The film embodies everything ViratKohli stands for, as a symbol of leadership, passion and courage, he has been able to overcome every obstacle thrown at him. And this is because there is a solid foundation inside him and that is what the product MuveAcoustics is built on, Inside Is Everything “
