Check out these earphones for less than Rs 500 on Croma

Looking for earphones but have a very strict budget? These super-affordable earphones should be right up your alley!

Earphones are an essential gadget for everyone, whether it is for listening to music or taking calls on the go. However, there are hundreds of models in the market, ranging from a mere Rs 149 to Rs 1999. For those on a tight budget, there are plenty of options available that offer decent sound quality at an affordable price. In this article, we will take a look at some of the best earphones under Rs 500.

Things to consider when buying budget earphones

Wired: At this price range, you will mostly get wired earphones. If you want to more wireless options, then you should consider increasing your overall budget.

3.5mm jack: Almost all wired earphones at this price range will feature a standard 3.5mm jack. So if you have a device that does not have that port, then you will need a separate cable for that.

Features: Don’t expect these earphones to offer features like active noise cancellation or something similar. These are pretty basic and are designed more like stepping stones rather than high-quality audio devices.
