The market for wireless earphones has exploded with a plethora of brands and models available in the market. From high-end earphones to affordable ones, there’s something for everyone. If you are looking for a pair of wireless earphones that are both reliable and affordable, you have come to the right place. Here is the list of best wireless earphones that are available via Croma for under Rs 2,000.
Things to consider before buying a wireless earphone
Form Factor: Wireless earphones are now traditionally divided into two categories: Truly Wireless Stereo (TWS) earphones, which are ‘truly wireless’ and require a case to be carried in, and neckband style earphones. The TWS-style earphones are more convenient, but they sometimes compromise on the sound quality. And there are very high chances of losing one of them.
On the other hand, neckband-style earphones have a longer battery, and there is no risk of loss as they will be around your neck all the time. So, choose wisely which one you prefer.
Battery Life: Battery life is another area where you need to keep your eyes on when purchasing wireless earphones. Some earphones offer mediocre battery life, and some offer exceptional ones with fast charging technology. You don’t want your buds to fail you during important calls
Codec support: While most wireless earbuds have switched to the AAC codec standard, some wireless buds still use the SBC codec, which offers relatively inferior sound quality. So, do keep that in mind while shopping for wireless earphones.
