9 Best Earphones under 1000 (The New trends of 2021)

The post is ready, just spreading this post is left
The best earphones under 1000 in India

Earphones are the growing trend nowadays, and the demand for these earphones are touching unbelievable heights. Especially, the earphones under 1000 are becoming extremely popular among all the people.

That is why big brands are competing so much to dominate the earphone market.

I am sure you would agree with me that because of so many choices and brands, it is very difficult to select the “right earphone”.

Different earphones and headphones under 1000

And that is why I have created this post.

Today, I am going to clear all your doubts regarding which earphones you should prefer and which ones you should just ignore.

For your convenience, I am dividing this article on earphones under 1000 into:

  • Wired
  • Wireless / Bluetooth

[sociallocker] As a bonus, I am cutting down these two broad categories into even smaller subcategories :

  • In-ear
  • On-ear
  • Over-the ear

[/sociallocker]

Different types of earphones

You can have a look at these pictures and decide which one do you want.

It is not necessary to know all the technical names to get the best earphones under 1000 which will fit both your needs and budget!

Gadgets88 will help you with it. Many people call it “India’s #1 solution to tech problems.”

So let’s start with the wired earphones.

Best Wired Earphones within 1000

Though many new Bluetooth technologies have come into play, there is still a large group of people who prefer the wired earphones.

Let’s move into the main types.

  • In-ear
  • On-ear
  • Over-the ear

Now, let’s move on to the in-ear earphones first.

1) JBL C100SI

JBL C100SI, one of the best earphones under 1000

Price

Though this JBL earphone has an MRP of 1200, it even sells for 599 on Amazon during the sale.

You can view the current price here.

Specifications

No fancy design or wires, normal rubber wires
Awesome sound quality
Noise cancellation (passive)
2 extra pairs of ear tips
1-year warranty

Sound Quality

  • These JBL earphones have a good overall sound quality.
  • These budget earphones have good bass.

Many earphones these days have so much bass that they ruin the music.

I seriously hate this excessive bass.

Fortunately, these earphones are not like that.

The bass comes in when needed. It doesn’t make the music unnecessarily muddy.

  • They have high class vocals and high pitched tones.

Many brands often ignore the vocals while putting emphasis on the bass.

But this model of JBL balances all the elements and will give you the taste of exceptional music.

A balance of all the elements of music

I liked it very much.

Features

This earphone has literally, a lot of features.

And that is why it has earned its position in the ‘Best Earphones under 1000’ list of Gadgets88.

Google Assistant as well as Siri.

different voice assistants available in earphones
  • This earphone supports the feature of passive noise cancellation as well.

I’ll explain.

Imagine yourself sitting in a very crowded bus with the earphones on your ears.

You can see everyone shouting at each other, but you aren’t hearing them. You are enjoying your music. This feature is just like that.

Just you won’t experience such extremes that you won’t hear the shouts and yells also.

Yeah, but it really does block outside disturbances and gives you some isolation.

a person wearing an earphone which offers noise cancellation
  • They are very comfortable in comparison to the other earphones you get within this price range.

Apart from being comfortable, these earphones won’t fall out from your ears so easily too.

When I tried it, it snugly fit into my ears, covering my whole ear. This is how these earphones block outside sound too.

This is how earphones fit into your ear snugly, without the risk of falling, though this is a photo of a different earphone, the JBL model also fits the same way.
  • The only con about these earphones is that it does not have braided cables.

Braided cables are better than ordinary cables. These help the earphones to last longer by giving the earphones a better wire quality.

You don’t get braided wires with this earphone, and that is quite obvious, considering the price.

And, in this case, you get a 1-year warranty card with the earphones. This means that the manufacturer is very confident of the wire quality and these headphones will certainly last long.

That is why, he has given a 1-year warranty.

And if you handle earphones with care, these JBL earphones are a good pick.

Colour Variants

The photo of the earphones above was its black version (the most popular).

But, yeah, it also has its colour variants.

You can choose your favourite colour from its two more versions.

white color variant of JBLC100SI
red color variant of JBL100CSI

Now, before you make up your mind whether to buy it or not, I want to show you its major pros and cons.

Pros
  • It will give you an excellent taste of music.
  • Very comfortable
  • It will not fall off from your ears
  • It will block outside noise so that you can hear your music comfortably
Cons
  • It doesn’t have braided cables.

Conclusion :

If you have any problem with the earphones, you have two voice assistants to help you solve it.

And, now for the most important part.

Is JBL 100CSI a value for money earphone?

You must have guessed the answer by now.

Look :

You have read about all the features this earphone will give you.

Now, all of these features in a single earphone, and that too, just for 599 (hoping you are reading this post during a sale).

Or else you will get it around 800.

In India, such deals come very rarely.

I challenge you if you can find any earphone which offers more features than it at its price.

So, I think you have got your answer by now.

This earphone is 100% worth it.

2) Realme Buds 2

Realme Buds 2, one of the best earphones under 1000

Price

Realme Buds 2 was of 599 recently, but these earphone prices fluctuate quite often.

You can check the current price here to get a clear picture.

Specifications

11.2 mm bass boost drivers for good bass
Feature of magnetic clamping is available
3 pairs of earbuds of different sizes are given to fit your ear
It has a mic embedded in it
This earphone comes with a 6-month warranty but it will surely last longer than that because of the braided cables.
You have the feature of voice assistant which you can enable at a single touch.

Sound Quality

sound waves
  • Realme Buds 2 have very good bass. It is neither low that you can’t hear it nor too high that it affects the other tones of the music.
  • The vocals can also be heard clearly.
  • There is a bit of issue with the high pitched tones. But it is not that bad also and keeping in mind such a low price (599), it is more than enough.

In fact, these are one of the best earphones you can get within a benchmark of 1000 in India.

And why do I tell this ?

You will know it in the next part.

FEATURES

Features

  • There are magnets at the back of these earphones, so that both of the earbuds can stick together.

These are good for storage purposes and the earphones don’t get damaged this way.

magnetic clamping of Realme Buds 2
  • This earphone will give you the amazing feature of passive noise cancellation.

(This means that the earbuds will snugly fit into your ears, blocking most of the outside noise and you will be able to hear the music without any distractions).

This feature is my favourite.

  • It also supports the feature of voice assistant.
  • It has a braided cable on the lower part of the earphone (braided cables are better than ordinary cables and last longer)
  • The only con about these earphones is that it doesn’t have a USB type C cable. Instead, it has a 3.5 mm jack.

Many mobile phones these days are shifting to USB cable. So it is not necessary that your phone supports 3.5mm audio jacks.

But you can check that yourself. Just check whether a hole for these earphones is given in your mobile or not.

Colour Variants

I have already shown you the yellow-and-black version of this Realme earphone.

Bonus

This earphone has two more colours :

the green and orange color variants of Realme Buds 2

Yeah, green and orange.

Now, I will give you a short summary of all the good and bad features about Realme Buds 2.

Why you should buy it and why you shouldn’t ?

Pros
  • It has braided cables
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Feature of voice assistant
Cons
  • It only supports a 3.5mm jack.

Conclusion :

If your mobile supports a 3.5mm audio jack, lucky for you, you have no issue with these earphones.

But if it doesn’t, unfortunately, you are going to miss all these features by this budget earphone at such a low price.

There is a reason, why, out of hundreds of earphones, this is #3 in our list of the best in ear wired earphones.

It is a value for money earphone within a price pool of 1000.

You don’t even have to pay 1000, you can get this earphone just for 599.

I will write this at the last.

You can see the currently bestelling earphones at Amazon here.

3) Boat Bassheads 100

Boat Bassheads 100, another earphone which you can get under 1000

Price

Generally, you can get this earphone on Amazon for around 399.

But now, when I am writing this blog, it is on a sale and you can get it for 350.

You can check its current price here.

My personal view

500 is not much for an earphone like Boat bassheads 100 whose MRP is 1000.

Plus, it is everyone’s all time favourite.

Because it is the #1 besteller in Amazon electronics

This takes us to our next topic.

Specifications

Good sound quality (with excellent bass)
High quality wires
It has a nice and sporty look.
1-year warranty
It can be connected via a 3.5mm audio jack.
An in-line remote and mic included

Sound Quality

  • Boat Bassheads 100, as the name suggests, has a very good bass. I recommend keeping the volume a bit louder for better sound experience.
  • If you are planning to use this earphone specifically for watching movies with dialogues, then this one is not a good option for you.

This is because the mid tones are not much prominent in this earphone. You will not get that theatre feel of dialogues.

But you can’t expect everything from a budget earphone. And as it is, Boat Bassheads 100 is already providing you more than you are paying for it.

  • Its sound is clean.
  • It also has a good soundstage.

Soundstage allows you to hear the location of instruments when listening to a piece of music.

It is my favourite. It takes you to the place as if the music is being played in front of you live.

And this earphone is pretty good at it.

Features

  • The biggest advantage of this earphone by Boat is its awesome sporty look.
Boat Bassheads 100

Its low price doesn’t mean that you will get an ugly looking earphone.

It is specifically designed by Boat for sports and it is the best earphone for workout and jogging under 1000 in India.

  • Its wires won’t tangle into each other. You will save a lot of your time because of the wires of these Boat Bassheads 100.

Look :

I faced this problem a lot with most earphones.

When I would finish listening to music, I would keep the earphones away, and they would tangle into each other.

the wires of an earphone getting tangled into each other

And I nearly had to waste 5 to 10 minutes to completely untangle them again.

But the wires of this Boat earphone are of high quality PVC so that you don’t have to get trapped in all of this mess.

These wires are thick too, and they last long because of this reason only.

  • These budget earphones, just like Realme Buds 2, have a 3.5mm audio jack.

They don’t support a USB cable.

  • If you want to claim your warranty for any reasons, the process is simple and hassle free.

This point has also been highlighted in many Amazon reviews of Boat Bassheads 100.

I will show you one of them. Look at point 4 of this review.

So you now know how easy it is to replace your phone under warranty with Boat.

Colour Variants

This earphone by Boat has a lot of colour options.

Along with black, they also have colour variants of green, orange, red and some more.

But the best ones are orange and green.

green color variant of boat bassheads 100

And black obviously.

Pros
  • A perfect sports earphone.
  • Good bass.
  • Excellent soundstage.
  • Tangle free wires.
Cons
  • Not good for dialogues
  • It has a 3.5mm audio jack

Conclusion :

It is a value for money earphone.

And you don’t have to face the second con if your mobile has a hole for a 3.5mm jack.

Mine has it and most mobiles to this date have it, so you just have to confirm for your cell phone.

If you have read my whole analysis of this earphone, its features, sound quality and pricing, congratulations!

You can view this earphone at Amazon here.

I have told you enough about the in ear earphones that fall under Rs. 1000.

Now is the chance of on-ear earphones.

4) Boat Bassheads 900

Boat Bassheads 900, a wired headphone within 1000

Price

You can get this earphone at online stores approximately from 750 to 850.

You can check its current price at Amazon here.

Specifications

I felt a nice punch of extra bass in these earphones.
This earphone also has PVC wires (tangle free and long lasting)
Boat Bassheads 900 is foldable for easy storage.
The sound quality is very good though the mic quality is not up to the mark.
You also get a 1 year warranty by Boat for this product.

This headphone has a lot of features on it for you, and it also has an awesome build quality.

I will not waste my time by telling you about its build quality.

Because Ken has beautifully described the build quality of this headphone already in his video.

Skip over to 3:36 of this video to see the build quality of Boat Bassheads 900 and how it can solve your problems.


Because you have watched this video, you now have got the idea of what this headphone really is.

So, I will now straight move to its sound quality.

Sound Quality

  • Because it is a part of the Bassheads series of Boat, it has an appreciable bass.

It can give you a good pump in the gym because of its bass.

If you don’t like a dose of high bass in music, then this earphone is not at all for you.

But if you love it, then you will love this earphone too.

tick sign
  • The sound is very clear, especially for an earphone which you can get within 750-850.

Because of the sound clarity and bass, you would like to enjoy watching movies with this version of Boat.

a customer review of boat bassheads 900

  • But the sound quality of the mic is a thing of concern. The mic is located a little down in the earphone.

Because of this, sometimes the other person can complain of not hearing your voice properly.

So I recommend not purchasing this earphone specifically for calls.

Features

  • This headphone can be folded to make it small so that it is easy to carry from one place to another.

boat bassheads 900 is foldable

See the difference ?

Many people even fold it to an extent that it fits into their pockets!

You can watch the 10-second clip of this video from 11:55 – 12:05 to see how he has folded the earphone to make it fit inside his pocket.

  • The ear cushions of Boat Bassheads 900 are of high quality faux-leather foam.

I’ll explain.

Faux leather foam is sweat resistant. It will keep your headphone safe from sweat and water as it does not soak them easily.

This is a really good feature to add. It makes the headphone even more suitable for gyms, where you sweat all the time.

And now you don’t have to take any tension of the ear cushions wetting because it won’t damage your headphones.

  • This headphone is extremely lightweight. It doesn’t put pressure on the head due to its light weight.

Boat Bassheads 900 just weighs 150g, which is very less for a an on-ear earphone.

An on-ear earphone usually weighs around 230g.

You see, Boat Bassheads 900 is feather-light in front of other headphones.

a feather flying in the open sky
  • As a bonus, this headphone also has the PVC wires, the ones which were present in the Boat Bassheads 100.

I’ll not repeat all of it again.

In short, they were the thick wires which don’t get tangled up and also last long.

Thick PVC wires which make the headphone tangle-free
  • Now, this is an issue faced by everyone, and Amazon reviews are filled with it.

Want to know what it is ?

The issue is of the headphone being a bit tight and hurting their ears.

Now, this is because the Boat has made such a design for its Bassheads 900 that both the earcups of this headphone remain intact with each other.

Even if you pull it in the beginning, it will again come towards like a magnet.

But you have to do it a few times to make it a bit loose and you will see the change within two weeks or so.

Yeah, it can seem a tedious task at the beginning, but see, just 5-10 mins a day won’t hurt you much. Right ?

Your efforts will be definitely worth it.

Because Boat Bassheads 900 is one of the best earphones under 1000 for gym, movies, and even gaming!

  • This headphone also has a very classy look, as earphones by Boat usually have.
boat bassheads 900

The finishing look is provided by the metal casing with a white circle you see on the outside of the ear cushions.

In terms of looks, no on-ear earphone can compete with this one at its price.

  • Like the most wired earphones, this earphone too can be connected via a 3.5mm audio jack.

Now, have a look at other colour options of this wired headset.

Colour Variants

Boat Bassheads 900 can be bought in two colours : black and white.

I have shown you the black version just now.

the white color variant of boat bassheads 900

Here is the white variant of the headphone.

Now, you will get to know about some of the major pros and cons you need to keep in mind before deciding whether to buy this Boat headphone or not.

Pros
  • It will give you a sporty look.
  • It is foldable.
  • It has high quality wires and faux foam.
  • It has a very good sound.
Cons
  • It will be a bit tight in the beginning.
  • The sound quality of the mic is not that great.

Conclusion :

Boat Bassheads 900 has no competition in the market of on-ear earphones

No on-ear earphone can match the features of Boat Bassheads 900 at its price and it rightly gets the name,

‘Best on-ear earphone under 100’ in 2021 by Gadgets88.

You can view it on Amazon here.

Since we are not going to talk about any other on-ear earphone, let’s straight move on to over-the-ear wired earphones under 1000.

5) Boult Audio Bassbuds Q2

Boult Audio Bassbuds Q2, one of the best wired earphones under 1000

Price

Though this over-the-ear earphone has an MRP of 2499 but you can get it on Amazon from 599 to 699.

You can check its current price here.

Specifications

This headphone is also foldable.
Boult Audio has a gold plated 3.5mm audio jack.

Watch a less than 30-second short clip of this video from 1:50 – 2:15 to see the unboxing of the Boult Audio.

I like this red-and-black colour combination very much.

But sometimes you can’t get the Boult branding in red. Sometimes, it is done in white only.

Like this.

front view of the boult audio Q2

Both of these look awesome, but I like the red one more.

Sound Quality

  • Though the name Boult Audio Bassbuds suggest that there would be extra bass in these headsets, but there is no extra bass and these earphones are not at all bass-heavy.
a balance of all the elements of music

Boult Audio plays a balanced music, and the bass comes in when required, without making the sound muddy.

In many earphones, the bass drowns the vocals and the higher tones, but these earphones are not like that.

If you don’t like very high bass and want to listen to balanced music, then only go for Boult Audio.

If you love high bass, then this headphone is not the right choice.

You can consider other headphones under 1000 such as Boat Bassheads 900 if you want bass-rich music.

  • Boult Audio is very good for movies, gaming and soft music.
a person playing games with boult audio on his ears

Yes, it is a paradise for you if you like surrounded music, with vocals, higher tones and appropriate bass.

This is a nice headphone if you are purchasing it specifically for games also.

Let me tell you about the its features now.

Features

  • This headphone is also foldable so that you can easily store them anywhere.
  • The 3.5mm jack is gold-plated for extra protection, and also to give you a premium feel.

It gives you a premium feel in every way it can.

  • Boult Audio is a bit fragile and if you don’t handle it properly, it will break.

So if you use earphones a bit roughly, these are certainly not the ones for you.

But if you use earphones with care and like to listen to a balanced music, then Boult Audio Q2 is the best earphone under 1000 for you.

  • This headphone has two voice assistants for you.

Google Assistant as well as Siri.

  • This earphone has pretty big earcups which cover your whole ear.

What’s the special thing about it?

Because it covers your whole ear, it doesn’t let outside noises disturb you.

You can enjoy your music in noisy places too.

And not only for music, if you are doing some important work, you can just put on these headphones.

And they will block the outside sound for you.

Now, I have a bad news for you.

This headphone Boult Audio Q2 currently has no colour variants on Amazon.

Best Bluetooth Earphones under 1000

Bluetooth earphones are literally on a boom now!

The photo below shows the number of bluetooth earphones shipped across the world, and that too, in millions!

the growing popularity and the number of shipments of bluetooth earphones
Source : Statista

This is amazing data by Statista and it also predicts the shipments of bluetooth earphones in 2021.

I also have something you need to keep in mind :

Bluetooth technology is expensive. This is why you can’t get many bluetooth earphones under 1000.

You have limited choices and features.

Among those limited options also, I am going to walk you through the best earphones under 1000 that are bluetooth.

6) pTron Bassbuds

pTron bassbuds, one of the best bluetooth earphones you can get under 1000

Price

These truly wireless earbuds are priced at 1900, but you can get them between a price pool of 850 – 1000 at Amazon.

You can check its current price at Amazon here.

Specifications

It takes just 1 hour for the earbuds to charge completely, and they have a talktime of 5 hours and a playback time of 6 hours.
Excellent sound quality with an incredible bass.
You can enable the feature of voice assistant
These truly wireless earbuds use the latest bluetooth technology (Bluetooth 5.0)
It has a bluetooth range of 10 m.
They come with 2 extra pairs of silicon earbuds so that you can adjust to your size.
1-year warranty
pTron Bassbuds come with a micro USB charging cable
They have an in-line remote and a mic for calls.

Sound Quality

  • These earphones have very good sound quality with deep bass.
thumbs up
  • The name ‘pTron Bassbuds’ suits them because of their high quality bass.

You will feel that deep bass in music while using these earphones. I love bass and I certainly like the sound produced by these earbuds.

pTron Bassbuds are the best if you want a bluetooth earphone that will play music full of bass into your ears.

Features

  • These earphones look very classy, and certainly, you would want to wear it in front of other people.

And this is the main reason why everyone is going crazy after this one.

After all, it is the third most selling earphone under 1000 at Amazon.

Take at a look at some of its other features now.

  • It takes 1.5 hours to charge and gives you a playback time of 6 hours, as is written on the box.

And the volume of these earphones is really loud, so you can easily listen to music at just 40% volume.

But we listened to it at 50% volume.

50% volume by coloring half a circle

And we got a playback time of around 3-4 hours. But, as I mentioned, the music was really loud.

So, if you don’t listen to loud music, then you can easily work with 30- 40% volume, and in that case, you will certainly get a playback time of around 6 hours.

Though pTron has written that its earbuds take 1.5 hours to charge fully, in our test, they charged in just about 1 hour.

  • With pTron Bassbuds, you get a talktime of 5 hours and a standby time of 100 hours.
  • A major problem with these earbuds is that they are a bit bulky. I was not comfortable with the default earbuds that came in these earphones.
the earbuds of pTron bassbuds

They were too big for my ears.

If you face the same problem, no need to worry. There are two pairs of extra earbuds of small and large sizes.

You can just replace the default earbuds with the small ones. It is very easy.

I did the same thing and then there was no issue with the size.

  • It uses the latest bluetooth technology (Bluetooth 5.0)
all the features of Bluetooth 5.0

Bluetooth 5.0 consumes less power and offers more features than its earlier version, Bluetooth 4.2

Bluetooth 5.0 increases data transfer speeds and you can also communicate over longer distances with your friends.

a person video talking with her friend who lives abroad
  • These earbuds have a bluetooth range of 10m.

In my test, they worked really well until 10 – 12m, but after that, the connection started to disrupt a little.

How much more can you expect out of a budget bluetooth earbud like this ?

10m are more than enough.

You will face no problem listening to music even in the next room with these pTron earbuds, while your mobile is in the first room.

  • These earbuds are not sweat resistant. They can get damaged due to water or sweat.

So these pTron bassbuds are certainly not made for workouts or jogging.

If you are planning to use it in the gym to get pumped up by its bass, then I think you should think about it again.

  • You can also enable the voice assistant. It will solve any problem you have.
  • You can charge these earbuds with a micro USB charging cable.

Colour Variants

pTron Bassbuds are very good bluetooth earbuds to buy in 2021. And that too, under 1000.

They have three more colour variants – white, green and blue.

But the one I showed you at the beginning, the black, was the best.

Want to see the other ones ?

The blue and the green one are certainly not up to the mark and who wants to buy these ugly looking variants ?

The white one is still worth considering.

But the black one has no match.

the black pTron bassbuds

Before deciding whether you should move on towards this or not, have a look at its major pros and cons.

Pros
  • They are nice looking earbuds
  • pTron Bassbuds use the latest bluetooth technology
  • You will enjoy the sound quality a lot, and they also produce excellent bass
Cons
  • They can get damaged by sweat and water.

Conclusion :

These earbuds are great for watching movies, listening to songs and attending calls.

But they are not made to use in gyms and for playing games.

If you take these earphones to the gym, they will get damaged because of your sweat.

And since this is a wireless earbud, while playing games, you will not get that instant sound when you kill someone (in Free Fire).

The sound will lag for a second before coming.

But that is a problem with all bluetooth earphones.

If you ask me about these pTron bassbuds, I would tell you these are the best truly wireless earphones under 1000 you can get in India.

It is up to you now.

Which way were you planning to use this earphone ?

Were you going to use it for late-night movies, songs, and for attending important calls ?

Go and get it now.

7) pTron Tangent Lite

pTron tangent lite, the best neckband earphone under 1000

Both of the best earphones under 1000 in the bluetooth category are of the same brand, pTron.

Price

It has an MRP of 1800. But you can get it (at an astounding discount) at 600 on Amazon.

Did you hear it right ?

A bluetooth neckband earphone at 600, and that too, branded.

But these prices change every week, and sometimes, every day.

So, you can check its current price at Amazon here.

Specifications

This earphone uses Bluetooth 5.0
It gives you a decent sound quality with some bass.
They have a Bluetooth range of 10 metres
It has a 1 year warranty
This neckband by pTron can be charged via a micro USB charging cable
It has an in-line remote and mic included

Before I tell you about its sound quality it is very important to let you know about its build quality.

Which is amazing. You would not believe that this earphone is of 599.

In the video below Aman has explained and practically shown the whole build quality very nicely.

He starts his practical explanation of the build quality from 1:35.

And this earphone offers you a lot of features so you should watch this video from 1:35 minutes.

And because this video has already explained you the build quality I will not waste my time showing it again.

I will straight move to the sound quality.

Sound Quality

  • They have a decent sound quality with some bass.

You can feel the bass when it kicks in but it is not that high.

The music is not bass heavy also and the music also doesn’t lack bass.

If you like very high or extremely low bass then this is certainly not the one you are looking for.

But if you prefer a somewhat medium bass then this is the right choice.

You don’t get that premium sound quality with these earphones.

So, if you are planning to buy it just for its sound quality and bass, then I will not recommend you to go for this one.

Features

  • You can magnetically clamp these earphones.

This way, you can store them easily.

  • These bluetooth neckband earphones give you the latest bluetooth technology (Bluetooth 5.0)
  • pTron Tangent Lite also has a bluetooth range of 10m.
  • These earphones fully charge within 1.5 hours. They have a playback time and talktime of 6 hours each.

I like this one a lot. 6 hours is more than enough. One charge can easily last the whole day.

  • The earbuds of this neckband snugly fit into the ears. And they are extremely comfortable.

They will fit into your ears so snugly that you will automatically feel that you are not getting disturbed by the outside noises.

These will cancel all of them for you.

  • They have the support of voice assistant.

You can enable the voice assistant on pTron Tangent Lite with the touch of a button.

  • They are sweat resistant too.

They also don’t fall off your ears.

You can use them during gyms and workouts because it will neither get damaged due to sweat nor will it fall off your ears.

At the end, you get a lot more features than you could demand out of such a low-cost bluetooth earphone.

Do you want to know which colours would you get this earphone in?

Have a look at the topic below.

Colour Variants

This model of pTron is available in 4 different colours:

Black

ptron tangent lite

Black-and-red

red variant of pTron tangent lite

Black-and-green

green variant of pTron tangent lite

Black-and-yellow

yellow variant of pTron tangent lite

For the first time, I liked all its colour variants.

The yellow-black one was not quite appealing.

But the other three were awesome!

Now, you might be wondering about the major pros and cons.

Here it is.

Pros
  • It will give you a decent sound and mic quality.
  • It has a lot of features in store.
  • It is a very good sports earphone.
Cons
  • If you are expecting very high sound quality out of this low cost earphone, you would be disappointed.

Conclusion :

One thing that I would seriously suggest you is going through the features of this pTron neckband once again if you want.

This is just a budget bluetooth earphone.

But the things it offers are many.

And so it certainly should be a part of our list of the best earphones under 1000 in 2021.

You would be happy to use it in the gym and while jogging.

And there is not much lag also.

The reason I am saying not much is because there is a bit of lag in every bluetooth earphone.

So if you want high quality gaming of the next level, then you should only go with wired earphones.

You would not complain about the sound quality and the mic quality.

It is OK.

But the other things offered by this earphone are great!

So choose your priorities and then decide whether this earphone is the best earphone under 1000 for you or not.

If it does, you can view it on Amazon here.

These were the best earphones under 1000 in the category of in-ear bluetooth ones.

But, it is not that good with handling calls and for gym purposes.

You have to keep this headphone nicely because it is very delicate. If you handle it roughly, then it will break.

Though this earphone has some major cons too, it is worthy of being a part of the Best earphones under 1000 ultimate list.
