Are you searching for a budget earphones under 1000 INR? The options are overwhelming but I will do my best to help you out pick a earphones that you would enjoy. Lets take this for a ride?
This is one of the most popular earphones in this segment. Sennheiser is on of the trusted brands when it comes to sound gears. This earphones doesn’t have a mic so all you can do is listen to music but no calls. It offers decent, clear audio with slight emphasis on bass. It’s got a good grip too and has a L-shape connector.
If you are looking for an entry level ear phones, I would recommend you check this ear phones.
Psst! I have a secret to tell you. These earphones sound better than few over hyped 2k earphones.
These come with an extra silicon ear tips so don’t worry about the fit, you have options 😉
#2. Brainwavz Omega
Sits perfectly in your ear and doesn’t fall off that easy. If you are anything like me, you will thank me for recommending these to you. I move my head and it falls off ALL THE TIME!
The cable is a bit flimsy so I wouldn’t recommend for a rough use. It uses 6mm driver units which is rare for this segment.
#3. 1More Piston Fit
The 1More Piston Fit are decent earphones for the price. These are not heavy on bass but if you like slow and classics, it is a good choice. Highs might sound tad shrill, but the audio balance makes it bearable. Just make sure you don’t push it to its extremes and enjoy the experience. Also, don’t they look like initial version of MI earphones? eh! who cares, I want them 🙂
House of Marley Smile Jamaica EM-JE041 is a wooden styled earphones. If you are using in the office space this would be best option to camouflage. This version comes with MIC and the cable is super sturdy. I personally loved the build quality. Does have a single button to receive and end call or start and pause music but the volume buttons are missing though. The audio quality is not upto the mark when compared to it competitors. Lacks clarity and seems muddy at high tones.
These earphones do look premium. So if you are more into styling and a casual listener, I would suggest you go with these earphones.
#5. JBL C100SI
The JBL C100SI looks brittle but has a better build quality compared to Senniheiser CX180. To top it up, these come with mic. If mic is a must have for you, pick these up. But in terms of sound quality and value for money, I would still go with CX180. Noise cancellation is good on these, so use them with caution.
#6. Sony MDR-EX150AP
The Sony MDR-EX150AP comes with a mic and it has got good sound quality, I am not really impressed by the design of the cable but they managed to provide us with a cable management plastic module which can come handy to keep your earphones from getting entangled. The ear tips are color coded and that is a keen attention to gaining customer’s satisfaction. The bass is decent but the trebles on high can be unpleasant, so use it mid volumes to enjoy the experience.
If you don’t need the mic, you can go with Sony MDR-EX150 as well which is a tab bit cheaper.
I have always been a fan of Audio Technica, they make one of the best headphones. The logo styling on the ear tips makes a style statement but the cables are a disappointment. They are not tangle free but Audio Technica provided us with a solution with their unique round case which looks like a yo-yo. The audio quality is clean and moderate on all fronts and the noise cancellation makes it an immersive experience. This variant come with mic.
Audio-Technica ATH-CLR100BK beats its competitors with its pricing and value for money.
#8. Evidson Audio B3
Evidson Audio B3 is a made in India earphones. With 2 color options Red and Blue these are a thing of beauty. The reds look as shiny and stunning like the Ironman suit and they should consider launching an Ironman edition 😀
These come with mic and extra ear tips. They offer lovely bass and are pretty good at mids. At higher volumes the clarity is compromised though. Either way, I don’t want to blow my ear drums so I am happy with mid volumes. The cable is sturdy, look premium and pretty much tangle free.
These don’t have L-shaped jack which is a bit of an issue if you are someone who keeps the phone in the pocket while listening to music.
Overall, these are a good choice for a relaxed usage.
#9. MI earphones
These are basic earphones from MI. Rubber cables and light weight. Comes with Mic but no dedicated volume buttons. If you need them you can go for the next variant of MI (still under 1000 INR) which comes with braided cable and dedicated buttons. The volume signatures are basic. Nothing too bright but the high tones are a bit muted.
If you have a MI device you can go for recommended equalizer settings to improve the output. These are comfortable to wear for a longer period of time.
MI has always offered volume for money products and these are no different. Check them out if you are a MI fan.
#10. Soundmagic ES18S
You would have definitely seen these earphones at least once in your friends circle. These have set the standards of a budget earphones for quite sometime. Comes with a mic, leather pouch and the colored cables makes a strong style statement.
The build quality if sturdy so you can take them for a rough ride. In terms of audio quality, the mid and low are decent. Bass can be enhanced with equalizers.
P.S: If you need more selections or great discounts, head over to HeadPhone Zone. I have personally interacted with them multiple times. Their products and services are topnotch.
So, these are my Top Ten picks for earphones under 1000 INR.
