Dhir Acharya - Feb 13, 2020
Wireless earbuds are becoming more popular, but what are the best choices for Indian users that are both good quality and affordable?
- Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus Has Better Battery Life And Is More Apple-Friendly
- This Smartwatch Has A Pair Of Earbuds On The Inside
- Nokia Power Earbuds: Water Resistant, 1-Week Battery, Rs 7,144
Wireless earbuds are becoming more popular and one of the best choices, of course, is the AirPods from Apple. But not everyone can pay over Rs 11,400 for those earbuds, especially in the Indian market, where most people can only afford mid-range or lower items. There are various choices in the middle and the lower segment, but which is the best for you? Check this list out.
Good sound: 1More Stylish True Wireless
These earbuds are the most expensive in this list. Although their sound isn’t as good as Triple Drivers’ (a great product of 1More in the past), they are still a good product compared to other wireless earbuds.
The sound of these earbuds is more audiophile so people who love deep bass may not like it very much. The design makes it tighter to wear.
When fully charged, the earbuds can work in more than 6 hours at a moderate volume and the charging case also gives users 17 extra hours.
Best for making calls under Rs 7,100: Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2
Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 is a good alternative for AirPod, instead of Rs 11,400, you just have to pay Rs 7,100 to get good earbuds. A nice design is another advantage of these wireless earbuds. Besides active noise cancellation, the environment noise will be sealed with noise-isolating so that you can make phone calls even in noisy places. Their battery life is also long (7 hours when fully charged).
With IPX5, Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 is suitable if you want to use them during workouts or running.
Best under Rs 3,500: EarFun Free
What EarFun Free impresses you the most is its features. Looking at the description, you can see that these earbuds promise to bring you an amazing experience with Bluetooth 5.0, IPX7, as well as both wireless and USB-C charging. They cannot bring you the sound with high clarity like other expensive earbuds but they can still make you feel that they are worth every rupee you spend with the plump bass and audio detail. You can also see the quality of the earbuds when making phone calls. The EarFun Free earbuds are totally excellent at a reasonable price of Rs 3,209.
Under Rs 3,500 standout: Anker Soundcore Life P2
The Soundcore Life P2 is half as cheap as the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 but it can still offer user similar features. Although the sound coming out is not very clear and the bass isn’t really excellent but it is still acceptable at its cheap price. Besides, it produces warm, original sounds, which is appreciated.
Some may like their physical buttons. They have four microphones, two of which are to help reduce noise when you make phone calls in noisy places. In fact, they can help with noise-reducing but the voice of the user is not really clear to the other end.
Although Anker Soundcore Life P2 doesn’t have wireless charging, its USB-C charging is fine. The impressive things here are battery life, which can go up to 7 hours when fully charged, and IPX7 water-resistance rating. They are considered the best earbuds among wireless products of Anker now.
Good sound for less than Rs 3,200: Tribit X1 True Wireless Earbuds
X1 True Wireless is really an excellent choice in the under Rs 3,200 segment. Its sound performance is really good with strong bass and clear audio. The earbuds are light and won’t make you feel uncomfortable while wearing. They may not fit everyone but if they fit you, you will find that the sound is really good.
One disadvantage of these earbuds is short battery life (3 hours), but the charging case can give you five extra charges so you still can use them in a long time when you are outside. These earbuds are priced at Rs 2,925.
Likable under-Rs 2,800 choice: Anker Soundcore Liberty Neo
The Soundcore Liberty Neo may not be as comfortable while wearing as the Soundcore Liberty Air but it has better sound and a cheaper price. The earbuds are a bit heavier and can fit ears better than the Tribit X1. The quality of sound you get will partially depend on the quality of the seal you get which helps reduce surrounding noise. The battery life is about 3.5 hours of fully charging but the charging case can give you about 8 extra hours.
Under-Rs 2,800 stick-style model: TaoTronics TWS TT-BH053
Although TWS TT-BH053 earbuds’ sound quality cannot compare to Anker Liberty Air’s, they are still a good choice among true wireless earbuds in this segment. Their performance may surprise you. Besides 5 hours of using after fully charged, the charging case also offers 5 times of additional charging.
Though its listed price is Rs 4,281, you can find it sold off for just Rs 2,500.
