(Updated on January 25, 2022)
HARP Divine III
(Best True Wireless Earbuds)
Fire-Boltt Blast 1400
The convenience that wireless headphones bring into our life is substantial. Though, some of the headphones on this list do have wires. They allow you to have an unbothered music listening experience without having to deal with cables.
Smartphone manufacturers are abandoning the 3.5mm headphone jack for the USB Type-C port which leans in favour of wireless devices.
Within this article, we list a variety of headphones(in-ears, true wireless earbuds and on-ears) while keeping the budget in mind. All of which are wireless or use Bluetooth connectivity. In case the ones on the list are unavailable, check out the noteworthy mentions at the bottom.
Beats Flex – 7.3
The Beats Flex is a pair of simple, yet beautiful in-ear headphones.
The Beats Flex is a direct replacement for the BeatsX and comes with a sleek design with ergonomic control elements. These neckband-style in-ear headphones have volume controls on the left and power controls on the right.
With magnetic earpieces and an automatic music pause function, it’s a good pair of wireless in-ears for iOS users who are looking for a somewhat affordable pair. The Apple W1 chip makes pairing with Apple devices seamless and it keeps the connection strong.
The noise isolation is weak when it comes to reducing low-frequency noises like those of an AC. The sound quality and profile are centred around the consumer’s taste; with heavy, strong bass and a slightly smoother midrange. They do considerably improve vocals.
Alternative – Sony WI-SP510
HARP Divine III – 8.2
Positively an amazing pair of true wireless earbuds.
The Harp Diving III’s performance can easily be compared with the earbuds that cost 2-3 times its price. This is especially true when it comes to the sound quality performance of these devices. The touch controls can be used to control everything with the device, makes them rather easy to use.
The connection strength of the earbuds is quite stable and strong. The chances that you might experience a connection drop is extremely low. The build construction of the earbuds is good as well. Coming to the fit of earbuds, they come with varied sizes of eartips but you also get earhooks to improve the fit and in-ear seal.
Each earbud has an LED indicator on its back. They are also present on the charging case to show the battery. They also don’t protrude from the ear as much as some other earbuds like the pTron Bassbuds Elite or the Bose SoundSport Free True. The USB charging case also comes within the box, it is a micro USB.
If you are looking for an On-ear type Wireless headphone then the Sony WH-CH510 are an easy recommendation.
Edifier W820BT – 8.2
The Edifier W820BT is the best closed-back pair of wireless headphones here.
The Edifier W820BT stars a simple and generic design but still manages to look sophisticated. It uses a two-tone colour palette that looks cool and gives it a pleasing look. The headband can be adjusted and has comfortable foam padding just like the earcups. You can comfortably wear them for a long time but your ears can get a bit sweaty.
The seal created by the earcups is snug but not too tight this also prevents sound leakage. The control buttons are located on the back of the right earcup. This is also where you’ll find the charging port. The sound quality is great too – the bass is punchy with crisp mids and highs. Distortion is noticeable at very high volumes.
It can be used wired as it has a 3.5mm aux-in port which allows you to connect to a lot of devices except for modern iPhones. The battery life last about 80 hours on a single full charge. So commuters and travellers can take full advantage of this. It is capable of being a great partner on your journeys.
Fire-Boltt Blast 1400 – 8.1
The most affordable and cheap pair of wireless headphones made this list.
Fire-Boltt is an Indian company that makes Bluetooth speakers and wireless headphones that fit the budget of an average Indian consumer. The Bolt blast 1400, unlike the Blast 1200 which is an on-ear model, is an over-ear headphone priced quite economically. Their construction is mainly that of aluminium which is lightweight while also being strong.
The earcups along with the headband sit nicely on the ear and form a nice seal that feels pretty comfortable. Thanks to this there is almost no sound leakage at high volumes. The earcups can be collapsed for ease of portability. Taking complete advantage of 40mm drivers, produce excellent sound output with a natural feel to it. The midrange and the highs are correctly tuned to the punchy bass.
They have provided us with a 3.5mm aux-in port so it can be used in the wired form. You also get a 3.5mm to 6.5mm cable in the box. The connection is constant and stable. And finally, the battery life lasts about 25 hours which is more than enough for most people and their daily activities.
Mpow H7 – 7.8
The Mpow H7 doesn’t come with any bells and whistles instead focus on providing you with the things you need.
The build of the Mpow H7 is mainly plastic which makes it fairly lightweight and slim. The padding used on the inside of the headband and the earmuffs is the same and is quite soft. As for the earcups themselves, they don’t collapse inwards but are capable of twisting towards or away from you.
The headband is adjustable and has a stainless steel slider on the inside to improve its structural integrity. Since these are closed-back headphones they create a fairly good seal while isolating outside noise and preventing sound leakage. You get an aux-in port to plug in a 3.5mm cable and use them as a wired pair of headphones.
All ports(charging and aux-in) along with the music and volume controls are located at the bottom of the right earcup. The sound output is decent, nothing special about it. The microphones performance is as good as your smartphone’s. The battery lasts around 20 hours and fully charges up in about 2-4 hours. You also get two carrying bags in the box.
SoundPeats TrueFree+ – The plus variant is the one you want to get because unlike its plain Truefree variant offers you a charging case with the lid. Making it a carrying case as well. They are comfortable to wear while also being fairly small.
Mpow D8 – An excellent pair of sports in-ears that don’t get the recognition they deserve. It has a truly energetic and powerful sound signature that would boost your energy levels as well. Battery life is where it falls back though.
JLab Audio JBuds PRO – Your not-so-average pair of sport in-ear headphones, at least in terms of price. They are durable and have wonderful sound output. The battery life of about 5-6 hours.
Plantronics BackBeat Fit 350 – Looks don’t equal performance. While they look stylish and well designed the performance of the device isn’t on par with what you’d expect devices in this price range to be. A lot of users have complained about the durability of this product so we’d say it’s better to avoid it.
Sony CH 500 – The runner-up if we considered On-ear models into the list. Positively they are one of the best on-ear headphones in this price segment. After all, it’s Sony. They build excellent on-ears with great comfort and sound performance.
Sony WH-CH510 – The Best On-ear. Once again, Sony manages to deliver brilliant quality in build and sound output alike while maintaining its comfort standards. A simple and classy design with 35 hours of battery life.
Bluedio Turbine T3 – They have unique styling and are also quite dated. Nevertheless, some features of the Bluedio Turbine T3 still manage to keep up, like the battery life and sound quality. That said, it’s best to choose something else.
