The earphones are heavily crafted and are designed in a beautiful way. There is an engraved logo of Signature Acoustics on both ear-buds. The wire is stiff, tangle-free and promises durability. Earphones are very light in weight which ensures long continuous music playback. The gold plated headphone jack is another great add-on here as it sits tight in place.

Along with the earphones you'll get silicon ear tips. they are made of high quality and are soft and smooth. The heavy brass case is absolutely amazing! it gives a elegant look and saves your earphones from wearing off. It also has classy finish on the inside which gives the earphones a grip on the surface. Overall the build quality and design are amazing!

Sound quality -

C-12 earphones is the company's first IEM but it doesn't look like its the first one. Its almost perfect! The sound quality is fabulous,  well balanced and is natural. I wasn't expecting these earphones to have good amount of bass but to my surprise they are way better than what i was expecting!!!

Watching movies with this earphones is an amazing experience, many people may only use it for listening to music but its good to know that C-12 elements earphones are fun even when watching movies. The sound is crisp and details are warm. Every instrument is clearly heard just like the music composer wants you to hear. If you are someone who wants incredible treble then you must stay away from these earphones!

Also, sometimes i noticed that the earphones lose treble in low tunes but the bass is in absolute place. This is the best earphones available under Rs.3000 or $50. There is no detailed explanation needed for Signature acoustics. They are already a hit in india.Don't forget the brass case and other accessories included in the box they add cherry to the icey cake ;)
