12 best wired headphones under 1000 in India.
To all the music lovers there, Bestfivebuy bring the list of best headphones under 1000.
Check out the list below :
#1 Sony MDR-ZX110A
This is a very popular under 1000 headphone from well known brand, Sony. I found the earphones very light, it weighs just around . The built quality is okay, but you can’t use it roughly. Its completely made from plastic material. The adjustable hinges are also made from plastic. So, you need to use carefully.
Folding option is very useful for storing and carrying. It do makes some creaky sounds as you fold it on.
The earcups are not that foamy, I found it little harder. But, the good thing is that it flexs and swivel a little to give right fit on your ear.
The quality of wire is very good, undoubtedly, which is mostly missing in budget oriented headphones and earphones. But, that’s not the case with Zx110a, the wire is much durable and strong.
Sound quality is impressive. It delivers good bass and vocals. I would give 8/10 on sound. Thanks to its 30 mm drivers that help it produce that great sound with details.
( Edit1:After hearing the sound quality of Jbl c300si, I felt like I have rated Sony higher on sound quality, especially on bass. Sony stands much lower when compared to bass and noise cancellation of Jbl c300si headphones.)
Sony also offers one year warranty with this headphone.
Sony also came up with much improved version( Sony MDR XB450 ) of this Zx110a headphone with improvement in both built and sound quality
Sony MDR XB450
. The shinny concentric serration on ear cup looks awesome. And, it received huge applaud from music lover.
Though the price falls above 1000 range that why I have reviewed in under 2000 range. Till then you can check it at Amazon.
#2 JBL C300SI On-Ear Dynamic Wired Headphones
If you are bass lover, then no other headphones can provide such powerful bass, as Jbl c300si. A home theater like experience. It’s also great on noise cancellation.
I would give 10 on 10 for sound.
The built is equally strong and comfortable. Apart from plastic, it uses stainless steel at adjustment lock. There is layer of foam pad at the top gives soft impression that is never prickly.
The padding on earcup is also very softer( unlike Sony zx110a, that was hard). The earcup is also swivel able and self adjusting that gives right fit to your ear for complete noise cancellation.
Go for this headphone, you wil always be impressed.
Next, I am going to review two budget headphone from Philips.
#3 Philips SHP1900/97 headphone
One of the cheapest headphone to have under 1000 from a well known brand like Philips. It’s just at half of your budget.
Well, the sound quality is good with deep bass. But, it do break at highest sound level. But, again you should consider the price.
The complete earphone is made from plastic. The grip is good. It never falls. You can clear see its double band like design for that matter. But, it looks little bulky with round spherical ear cups.
The headphone can be adjusted very easily to fit on your head.
Padding on ear cup is neither very soft nor very hard, it’s medium.
The headphone has got really long wire, 2 meters long. So you can use it on your laptops and computers too. The quality of wire is good it’s made from durable plastic material.
#4 Philips SHL5000/, 00 headphone
Looking similar to above Sony MDR ZX110a, this is a widely accepted headphone from Philips with good bass.
SHL5000 is much sleeker and sexier than SHP1900.
It mentions more bass on the package and the sound is really great at base. So, if you are looking for cheap headphone with good base, go for this one.
Design is more like Sony, complete use of plastic with adjustable width and foldable ear cups.
It has got double wired wire with a length of 1.2 meters
#5. Boat BassHeads 900 headphone with mic.
Here is a beautifully crafted headphone from Boa, a well trusted brand by audiophiles.
The most remarkable feature of this headphone is its powerful bass. It mentions Extra Bass.
It is specifically designed for bass lover.
So, buy in only if you are a big fan of bass or you will regret. Its high bass is something people mostly like when gyming.
Built quality is good.
It’s very light weight just around 150 grams. You will never find it bulky.
It’s foldable in design, so easy to carry and store. The padding is also good.
You have option for extension and the extension joint is made metallic giving it strength. But, be caution, I would say avoid it using around neck area because the metallic extension strip has sharp edges.
Though using over head is fine as there is hair for protection.
It has employed quite strong and thick wire that proves to be very durable in a long run.
The 3.5 mm jack is also very well crafted, it’s metallic with rugged design for high gripping.
Also, they have provided a spring at the joint of 3.5 mm jack. This is to protect the wire from getting broken at the joint as joint is a weak point.
They have also taken full concern of comfort by employing high quality faux leather on top and earmuffs.
It’s an on the ear headphone and not over the ear headphone.
Given the small size of earmuffs the noise isolation is quite good. But, you can’t compare it with those fully covering earcups.
Therefore, it’s not that suitable to use in noisy environments like traffic.
Here is a YouTube review(by Ken Knows More channel) of this earphone that you may find helpful.
#6. Sennheiser HD 180 over-ear headphone.
Sennheiser 180 a popular under 1000 headphone from popular brand like Sennheiser.
Coming to its built quality at first, the headphone is made completely from plastic.
It’s a over the ear headphone, that gives it a good noise cancellation ability.
Also the earcups are very flexible to swivel in multi direction, making it a good fit for various heads.
They have used ample amount of soft and durable cushioning on earmuffs and top side.
You can also extend it, if having a large head size. Anyways, the extension is not metallic.
The headphone is quite light weight, weighing around 160 grams.
They have done branding at the top and side.
Now, coming to its sound quality. Well, the sound output is very balanced one.
Everything is balanced, the highs, the mids, the vocal and the bass.
Also, it has a good noise isolation. There is almost no leakage.
In case you are looking for a very powerful bass, this headphone might not serve your purpose.
In that case, you can go for Boat BassHeads 900.
The headphone comes with a really long cable, measuring 3 meters.
It can be messy sometimes.
Though you will find it useful when using on computer, but with mobile phone such long wire is a headache.
Also, it does not support microphone. So, you can’t use it for phone calls.
Here is a YouTube review of this headphone (by Satyajeet.M channel). Have a look.
