You know what, 500 rupee is not a big amount to spend on earphones but that doesn’t mean that we buy such earphones that don’t serve the purpose. I’ve already explained how to buy earphones in this buying guide that sounds good and you should read it before you check my recommended list.
I am doing mixing and mastering of music for a very long time and I know what type of element earphones are missing nowadays. Some earphones produce harsh distorted noise and some too much deep bass. I am personally not a fan of deep bass but if it’s in a limit that I would not mind it either.
So, in this post, I am going to list some of the best earphones under 500 from Amazon and Flipkart that serves different purposes.
Overview of Content
1. Realme Buds 2 Earphones with Mic
I personally like the design and build quality of Realme Buds 2 as it fits the purpose. It is a really really sturdy earphone as the edges of the cable are not easy to bend. Now talking about the features, these earphones can easily adopt any Android device. Which means you can pause and play music, use Google assistant with long 3 seconds press.
However, I have to say that bass is slightly on the stronger side, which few people may prefer. If you play party music, the mids sometimes gets muddy (for example the lead vocal) and becomes difficult to hear when you play it loud. On the other hand, soft music really really sounds great on these earphones. Overall, its good earphones for bass lovers.
2. Amkette Trubeats Atom X-10 with Mic
If you want not too much bass, just a pure and impressive sound experience, Amkette Trubeats Atom X-10 should be your choice. This pair of headphone has very premium looking design and comfortable silicon tips that don’t cause any pain even with 2 hours of listening.
The makers of these earphones have not touched the mids because they want you to hear the natural vocals. Also there is a slight dynamic changes in the highs which makes songs more vibrant. Also for bass, they have introduced Booming Beats which only enhances deep bass from 20 to 150 hertz. So, I would really recommend to try these headphone once.
