Top 5 Best Headphones under Rs 1000 in India (2018)

List of best headphones under Rs 1000 is updated every month by replacing the outdated headphones with popular and trustworthy products available in the Indian Online store. All the headphones are ranked after comparing each other and by analyzing the sound quality, bass effects, comfortability, noise isolation and more. For better online purchase experience we advise our visitors buy from Amazon or Flipkart.

Who doesn’t crave for a perfect set of headphones when it comes to traveling and mood alteration? Boring journey, emotional mood swings, and many other circumstances make headphones a sheer necessity. It even helps you to avoid the humdrum prattles that are simply lame ;). In today’s music freak generation, headphones can no longer be classified as “Want”…. It is a “Need” now.

Headphones are a pair of small listening devices that are designed to be worn on or around the head over the user’s ears (Courtesy: Wikipedia). Headphones come in a variety of different styles. Depending on the type of headphone that can fit in or around the ears perfectly, the sound quality is varied.

Types of headphones available in the market:

In-Ear or Canal Headphones

In-Ear or Canal headphones directly sit in your ear canal. They’re lightweight, portable, and generally much cheaper than On-Ear and Over-Ear sets. They fit snugly inside the ear canal to provide a tight seal so minimize sound leakage. However, the sound quality is generally poorer than over-ear and on-ear designs, particularly at the base end. Wearing for a long period of time, such headphones may prove to be uncomfortable.

On-Ear or Supra-Aural Headphones

This type of headphones rests on the top of the ear with leatherette pads around the ears. On-Ear headphones are comfortable than In-Ear headphones. They do not seal the sound properly.

Over-Ear or Circumaural Headphones

This type of headphones encases the entire ear. Their increased size makes room for a larger driver, with louder volume and better bass performance.By covering the ear, these headphones offer good noise isolation, but they are a lot less portable than the other formats.

What to check before buying a headphone?

  1. Sound Quality – The headphones should deliver full sound that’s balanced across treble, midrange, and bass frequencies.
  2. Comfortable to wear – The headphones you choose should be comfortable to wear.
  3. Noise Cancellation – It samples the noise around you and plays an inverted version of that sound in your ears, canceling out the noise around you.
  4. Noise Isolation – Headphones with noise isolation block outside noise by creating a physical seal in or around your ears to keep music in and ambient noise out.

List of best headphones under Rs 1000:

Sennheiser CX-180 Street II

This is an in-ear type of headphone which is highly preferred when it comes to canal headphones. It is a comfortable and sturdy product which is compatible to be paired with mobile phones and tablets. Its sound features include Bass-driven Stereo Sound, High Passive Attenuation of Ambient Noise, and Active Noise Cancellation. It does not have Bluetooth support. It is about 5 g in weight without the battery.

CX180 is the best In-Ear headphone under Rs 1000 and it is suitable for almost all occasions like work out sessions, jogging, gaming etc. due to its wire quality(long and strong), lightweight and portability. Its highlights are sound quality, design, wire quality, comfortability, portability, durability, noise cancellation, bass effects, and compatibility. If you want an inbuilt mic, then Sennheiser CX 275S will be a better choice as it packs an inbuilt microphone and offers excellent quality sound. However, it is priced almost double. We recommend CX 180 over other same range headphones for better reliability.

Sony Extra Bass MDR-XB250

Sony MDR-XB250 is a perfect pick for those who want powerful bass. You can activate or control the extra bass feature using the bass level controls. The headset will literally start to vibrate while the extra bass levels are at maximum, but it isn’t a drawback. This happens due to the deep thumping bass effects. Although it offers good quality sound, solidly built body, comfort etc. it is not for everyone. The deep thumping bass might feel unnatural to some people. However, we can turn off or reduce the “Extra Bass” easily.

Sennheiser HD 180

Sennheiser HD 180 Over-Ear Headphone offers excellent lossless sound reproduction and good noise cancellation, less bass though the effect is deep thumping. It is big soft cushioned earshells gives good comfortable feeling too. Sennheiser HD 180 is one of the best over-the-ear headphones under Rs 1000.

Sennheiser has used 3-meter long cable, but frankly speaking with a lot of mixed opinions we didn’t find that as a useful ranking factor since it doesn’t make any big difference to the headset. We believe that the 1.2m and 2m give the maximum comfort without movement restrictions and 3m is a bit extra long and is best for laptops as it hangs down all the time if it is not properly tied.

Overall it is a good product for the price!

Philips SHP1900/97

Philips SHP1900/97 looks bit bulky and heavy. But to our surprise, it was very light and that’s the main reason for the prolonged usage comfort. However, it is definitely not the best portable headset for outdoor use as it is big and bulky. It is designed for indoor use, especially for your desktop and laptop.

While we tested we found that the output is better while used with laptops and smartphones with good input. And in all other smartphones, a volume booster or a sound booster app is required for experiencing the best from it.

  1. Sennheiser CX 180, best In ear earphone under 1000. I personally like JBL T250si coz I prefer on ear type headphones. It is a very good option under 1000 rupees. Recommended both..

  2. Sennheiser CX 180 is worth buying and excellent quality earphones. I prefer over-ear headphones and had JBL t250si for quite sometime.

  3. Sennhiser CX 275s is the best alternative to CX 180 if u want inbuilt mic. It is like earphone CX 180 in terms of mids n good balance between bass n treble. Thats what i felt. Comes with inbuilt mic. Also cost is almost double. Anyways ur selection of headphones under 1K is perfect. One suggestion.. it would be better if u mention CX 275s for mic. It would be helpful for those searching for earphones with mic.. just a suggestion.. :p

  4. Hi.. sennhiser cx 180 is compatible with Oneplus 3T? and does it has song change button?

  5. sennhiser cx 180 is good headphone
