Don't buy Skullcandy, they are pretty but not durable - I go through headphones like there's no tomorrow (up to 2 or 3 pairs a year, but I'm wearing them almost as much as I'm wearing clothes, sometimes also while sleeping).You should be able to find a pair of Sennheiser or Philips within this price featuring decent bass performance - and noise-isolating, of course. I purchased a pair of Sennheiser headphones yesterday and so far, they're not half bad and also relatively comfortable.Sony and Panasonic also makes numerous headphones in this price range but I'm not a fan of Sony products (any, not just particular ones) so I've not tried any, and I've not tried any Panasonic ones recently.

The Ink'd ones.

Flipkart.com: Skullcandy In-ear Ink'd Earphones S2INCZ-033: Headphone

These are perfect in every aspect.

Thanks for your suggestion.
But i heard that the noise isolation is pretty bad in this. Is that right? Have you personally used them?

I've been personally using ink'd ones. Suits me, fits my ears, which others usually don't. :)Bass is not so loud, overall decent for a good price.

Thanks rusty.
As i said i can spend upto 1500 bugs. So if there are any better earphones in this price range i will go for that.
