A good pair of headphones goes a really long way in helping you enjoy your music. Simply having high bitrate music files does not guarantee a great listening experience. Headphones are the medium in delivering sound into your ear, so it’s just as crucial to own a good pair. Most headphones that come with our gadgets don’t offer the best quality. In-ear headphones are those that feature either a foam or silicone tip at the edge in order to provide a good seal in your ear canal. This helps deliver richer bass while also blocking out most of the ambient noise so you don’t need to turn up the volume too much. There are plenty of these in the market at various price ranges. But today, we’ll single out the top four under Rs 1,000.
These in-ear headphones have been around for a long time and till today, offer really good value for money. If you listen to bass heavy music like Metal or Trance, then these headphones are the perfect choice. The EP-630s offer a very comfortable fit to almost all types of ear shapes. The 9mm driver offers a wide frequency response and the silicone ear tips offer very good sound isolation as well.
If you’re looking for similar performance of the EP-630 but don’t wish to spend so much, then the PL11 from SoundMagic is a very good choice. These headphones offer very good
build quality in the form of a metal housing for the drivers, making them durable and stylish at the same time.
Available in different colours, the PL11s offers very good performance and can easily handle a wide range of musical genres with ease. You also get interchangeable ear tips to fit different sized ears.
The Sony earphones are powered by a neodymium magnet that delivers good bass and mid-range performance. The headphones have an angled design, so they rest comfortably against your ear and won’t come off while jogging or exercising.
The 9mm driver offers a good frequency response and works well with all portable devices like smartphones and PMPs.
JVC HA-FX33 Marshmallow
The JVCs offer a more balanced and accurate sound compared to the previous two. The foam tips provide a much tighter seal and the shape of the earphones makes it comfortable for all shapes and sizes. You still get plenty of bass and the mid-range is clear and well-defined, an excellent choice for those who want more accurate sound.
