Ok , guys Sony is a brand you can trust. It’s not everyday that we get a good Sony earphone under this price range. So do check it out. The sound is really clear , I have tested JBL low end earphones too but they can’t beat these Sony MDR ones.

1) If you want extra bass and high clarity then this is for you.

2) There is something about Sony , that no brand can touch.

3) Perfect for any sports activity , as the material is sturdy and durable. Sweat doesn’t stick much , color doesn’t fade.

4) This comes with an inbuilt mic , unlike Sennheiser cx 180. So you can make crisp audio calls anywhere.

5) Looks cool and are comfortable to wear. The build quality is bit better than Sennheiser cx 180 , so you can expect it to last longer too with wear and tear.

These are the ones that I would buy for myself! Highly Recommended!

4. Sennheiser CX 180

No Mic , Balanced and Clear Sound

Frankly , it is hard to compete Sennheiser CX 180 in terms of sound quality. But these will not be bass focused , so there are not for everyone. Sorry , no mic. They might sound godly to others , but I think these are just ok.

1) Comfortable fit for longer durations and come with three pairs of ear tips for better fit and a cable length of 1.2m.

2) Perfect noise isolation , audio quality is deep on bass while the vocals are crystal clear.

3) These earphones have everything that a product in this price range should have.

4) But they don’t have a inbuilt mic.

  • 2 year warranty
  • Balanced Sound
  • Soft on ears
  • Thin cable & can tangle
  • No Mic

With Mic , 9 mm drivers

Most comfortable fit having angled tips so that they can comfortably reach the ear canal and form a tight seal.

1) Wire and the earphones’ casings are made out of high-quality materials and are quite sturdy.

2) Company is also throwing in two extra pairs of ear tips for you to choose the best one for yourself.

3) The sound quality of these earphones is really great, considering their small size and the price bracket they are available in.

4) Vocals are clear while the bass is a tad less than what JBL T150A offers.

6. House of Marley Smile Jamaica  

With Mic , 9mm dynamic drive

House of Marley Smile Jamaica EM-JE041-SB Headphones

These earphones from House of Marley are unique in every term.

1) These earphones are made out of natural wood for having a true to life listening experience.

2) Cable is made out fabric that is much more sturdy than the traditional materials used and it has an added benefit of being tangle-free.

With Mic , 6 mm dynamic sound driver

One unique thing about these earphones is their their design , it’s quite sleek which make it easy to use for longer periods of time.

There is no volume control button , only the call receiving and music play button.

While they use the 6 mm dynamic sound driver , you might find it a bit small as our Sony and Mi pick above use larger 9 or 10 mm drivers.

The sound from these in ear headphones is clear , you can hear all the vocals and music quite well. You will find them comfy for binge watches.

8. 1MORE Piston Fit In-Ear Headphones

With Mic , 10 MM dynamic driver

1MORE Piston Fit In-Ear Headphones

3) Built quality is satisfying , plus the looks are fabulous.

4) Also these headphone show their true colors after using for 15 to 20 hours (Burning in)

No Mic , 13.5 mm dynamic driver , Suitable For Sports Activities

Sony MDR-AS210 Open-Ear Active Sports Headphones

These are perfect for work out , gym exercise , running and any other sports activities.

Why ?

1) Because they are light and will fit in your ears perfectly , these will not come out.

2) You will be a bit disappointed with wire quality though. As you get accustomed to these headphones , you will get more comfortable and start liking the music while pumping iron and exercise.

  2. Can u just tell me the best out of these in overall performance…audio quality…bass…n true music feel…durability and quality. How about 1more piston fit

  3. Soundmagic es18 is the best. 15hz plus 10mm drivers. Bass heavy and does handle the absolute sound your phone is capable to produce. No distortion. For everything else Sennheiser cx213

  4. Sir, Have to buy a good headphones under 1000….
    Which is the best from the above in all aspects…..?

  5. House of marley are worst, phlips she doesn’t produce that quality sound , and moreover Audio technica are best among all and can be placed on 2nd i agree cx 180 are so good.

    Under 1k price which brand earphone is good with bass, sound quality and also stay with long life. Plz prefer the brand name of earphone with exact model type.

    Thank you.

  8. Which one is good for basss amoung these???

  9. best ear phone for gaming

  10. Nice article, really helpful.

  11. I am searching for a great build quality and sturdy and with nice mic any suggestions

  12. Which is the best one for music lovers, clear,crisp vocals with best intrumental sounds….with a little bit of calling(mic)…..not really into bass. ….

  13. I bought she4305 yesterday seeing huge drivers and low frequency would give thumping bass instead its gvng me a low sound and severe headache can u help me out?

    • I am guessing that their is too much bass for you , trying using different size eartips that should work. If not you can return them and get Sennheiser CX 180.

      • Actually it has no bass at all and it’s quality is horrifying I thought based on specifications it might be good as Sony mdr xb 50ap but it’s actually not so do you have any other suggestions which is as good as Sony?

  14. I want earphones under 1k with great build quality means it should atleast last for 2 years.. please help..

    • Go for our first pick in list from Sony , but for them to last 2 year you will have to take care of them. Mostly avoid putting in jeans , no stretching , animal bites etc.

  15. should i change it with philips 2405 ? maybe it has mor bass that 4305?

  16. though great research, yet I’m surprised why none of Boat products made to your list… As per my 6 years experience in choosing the best Bass quality earphones for myself, Sony and Philips never impressed me…UBON and BOAT only got my attention…though UBON built quality isn’t good and doesn’t last long at all, in terms of bass, it is way ahead.
    While Mi is completely NO due to its Chinese brand.

  17. I need one with sturdy build (for travel)… (my current one is 1More Piston fit which I have taped heavily due to cuts in wire…)
    More of a 60’s-90’s Bollywood guy with mix of alt rock English music, so bass is not a major requirement (VOCALS ARE) .. so which one would you suggest?
