The Best Earphones Under ₹2000 in 2019

You don't need to spend a ton to get great sound! Several top brands have worked hard to deliver quality audio at an affordable price point for those on a budget.
While you might not get audiophile-level quality, these entry-level offerings are a massive step-up from the free earphones you get with your mobile phones and will have you appreciating the music you love more than ever!
There are a certain set of features that we've considered while evaluating and putting this guide together.

 

What should you be looking for?

Most products in this segment come with a plastic build instead of a metal/aluminium one - the latter being more rugged and durable. Aluminium is generally more rugged and durable than other materials when it comes to in-ear headphones. You get the options of both — an in-ear fit and earbuds fit. While the fabric braided cables offer better durability, most earphones in this segment are adequately sturdy. 

Universal compatibility is pretty standard with products at this price point. A three-button remote and microphone is an added advantage.

These earphones sound tons better than the stock wired earphones that came along with your phone. That being said, you'll certainly find that higher-priced wireless in-ears or wired earphones at the same price point will sound better. 

 

 

Our Headphone Gurus' Top Pick:




RHA MA390 Universal

The Budget King
RHA MA390 Universal


The Guru Says

"Tons of clarity and detailing, that's what this one's all about. The aluminium earbuds and 3-year warranty are the added benefit at this price point."

- Varun Soni

The RHA MA390 Universal offers affordability, awe-inspiring build, and a 3-year manufacturer's warranty which is one of the highest at this price point. A major step-up over your in-box hands-free earphones in terms of build and sound alike, the RHA gives you more reasons than one to ditch your buds and settle for the best!

Designed in Scotland, The RHA MA390 is beautifully built with its all-aluminium housing and enclosed design. The 6063-grade aluminium feels much more premium than the price tag suggests.

The Good

Premium build quality
A warm sound quality that delivers some punchy bass too
3-year manufacturer warranty

The Bad

Volume controls are absent
Treble might be harsh at times, leading to listening fatigue
