by Jayant

This is the Best Earphones under Rs. 2000 list where you will see some of the best earphones that you can buy in India under Rs. 2000.

Music is an important part of our life. We listen to music while traveling, in Parks, while running, in Gym, when sad, happy, with a broken heart or just to refresh the mind. Music really helps in repairing the body cells and helps in refreshing the brain. For a great music session, a good pair of earphones is all you need.

For me, earphones are always better than headphones. Earphones are portable, look cool, give you comfort for a longer duration, and comes in a different variety.

Best Earphones Under ₹2000 in India

One thing I want to share about sound equipment, the more the price, the better would be the sound. Don’t take it wrong but this is the truth about Sound Equipments. To narrow the gap and to buy the best one in my budget, I always prefer to buy earphones/headphones of Tier-1 Brands.

Most of the best earphones mentioned in this list are from Tier-1 brands like JBL, Sony, Sennheiser, and I would strongly recommend you prefer the earphones by Tier-1 brands.

Sennheiser 213 or brainwavz omega which one is better?

Jayant January 16, 2018 - 11:31 am

If you need an inline remote, go for Brainwavz Omega. CX 213 doesn’t have inline remote for controlling tracks and volume but it sounds really great.

Ayushman July 1, 2018 - 4:01 pm

Jayat am going to purchase Sennheiser PX 80 Over-Ear Headphone. What do you think. Is this the best choice under ₹2000? I canceled the order for Sony MDR-XB450AP On-Ear Extra Bass Headphones because I think they emphasize too much on bass which overshadows mids. I use Poweramp and like to play with the equalizer to adjust bass levels.
Radhe Radhe

Which is better sony xb 450 or boat rockerz 510?

Jayant March 3, 2018 - 12:36 pm

Rockerz is Wireless Headphones and XB450 is a wired headphone. I would like to recommend you Sony XB450 but if you want wireless headphone, then obviously, Rockerz.

Karthik Jois March 30, 2018 - 10:44 am

Jayant April 2, 2018 - 12:19 pm

Hi Karthik
To be honest, I am using Sennheiser and it is one of the best pairs of earphones I’ve ever had.Earphones are super light, sound is brilliant. If you need extra bass, do some tweaks in the equalizer. The sound also depends on device you are using. Be extra careful while using Earphones on the ride.
Go for Sennheiser CX275s.

You can buy the earphones. In this price bracket, this is probably the best deal.

Prathamesh s July 16, 2018 - 2:19 pm

Would you suggest anyone to buy headphones from myntra.com as they all the headphones available on their website are non returnable? I am getting boat rockerz 470 over ear wireless headphones for Rs1047 (RS1235 including tax) shall i go for it? I want this headphone cause friend of mine has same piece, and it sounds great plus it has good quality body. I dont want to buy them on amazon or flipkart cause they are sold for over 1700 and 2250 there respectively. Just tell my ,is myntra good portal for buying headphones?.please reply asap

Jayant July 16, 2018 - 10:55 pm

Hi Prathamesh
To be honest, I don’t have any experience of buying gadgets from Myntra. As you told, headphones are not returnable, I would suggest you to not to buy from Myntra. Better check lightning deal on Amazon. Also, buy from Authorised Seller on Amazon.

Srini August 7, 2018 - 12:14 am

Hi i need a good earphone that reduces traffic noise completely or to great extent to listen to audio books.Please suggest anythig under 5k.

Jayant August 9, 2018 - 11:22 am

Hello Srini
You may not get the complete isolation of Noise of the traffic but we can minimize to the greatest extent. You can consider buying RHA MA390 or Audio Technica CKS550iSBK. RHA is my first preference. On the cheaper side, you can consider Sony MDR-XB55AP.
Don’t use the earphones in traffic. Keep it safe.

Nandish October 4, 2018 - 12:03 am

You forgot the best one buddy, RHA 390 universal. Its unmatched with any of these garbage except seinheiser… RHA is the best.. Give em a try 🙂

Jayant October 4, 2018 - 11:16 am

Thank you for sharing that but the list only includes the earphones under ₹2000 and RHA 390 is not even close to Rs.2000 that is why they are not included in this list.

Shreyansh Rai October 8, 2018 - 11:51 pm

I believe you missed RHA MA390 Universal (around 2k everywhere) and still beats Sony mdr xb55ap and sennheiser cx275s according to many. I am extremely confused between the three where sennheiser has its brand value sony ones have the premium look and attractive bass and RHA is prasied by everyone for its clarity. let me tell you that I am an EDM fan and not THAT A BASSHEAD but bass attracts me and i don’t want disturbances in the extreme extreme lows n highs which people say sennheiser does create. Could you please help me out ASAP?

Jayant October 9, 2018 - 1:28 pm

I am using Sennheiser CX275 and it is working pretty well for me. Let me tell you one thing, I use my custom Equaliser and I always adjust that whenever I switch to a new pair. The sound very much depends on the output of the device. Get Sennheiser and customized the Equaliser as per your need. Hope that helped.

priya November 16, 2018 - 3:26 pm

is it ok to buy Sennheiser CX 275s from amazon or flipkart…or should we prefer to buy from Sennheiser own site.

Jayant November 20, 2018 - 1:04 pm

Hi Priya
It is perfectly fine to buy Sennheiser from Amazon or Flipkart.

Subhajit January 7, 2019 - 3:31 pm

Both the earphones are equivalent. I am using Sennheiser CX275s from last 8-9 months and yes they are pretty good.

Salony January 20, 2019 - 10:50 am

Heyy, thanks for the post.
Super confused between RHA 390U, Sennheiser cx275s and Boat Rockerz 255 Sports. What’s your take?

Jayant January 30, 2019 - 1:51 pm

Get Sennheiser.

Kirtirajan March 21, 2019 - 12:10 am

I want better wire quality with good music..but the build quality is most important to me cause I often sleep with earphone on so Suggest the best one near 2000 Rs/- for quality And Rough usage

Jayant March 24, 2019 - 12:23 pm

you can go for Sony or Sennheiser. But if your usage is really rough, go for some Truly wireless earbuds. Here are some good Truly Wireless Earbuds under $100

Honey July 9, 2019 - 12:21 am

Which sound quality is best sennheiser cx180 or 275s?

Jayant July 9, 2019 - 1:56 pm

One thing that really applies in terms of Sound equipment is More the Price, Better the Quality will be. CX 275s is any day better than CX 180. If you can extend your budget, get 275s. They have better hardware and sound. Hope that helps.

Sweety September 14, 2019 - 2:35 pm

Which one gives crispy smooth best sound quality Sennheiser cx275s or Sony mdr xb55ap?

Jayant September 14, 2019 - 7:01 pm

I’m using Sennheiser CX275s and I must say, mid and highs are crispy. You can opt for that. Sony is for Extra Bass.
