While wired headsets remained the norm for decades, untangling messy cables was a menace
most wanted to bypass. The advancement of Bluetooth technology made this possible. Today,
as wired headsets are slowly becoming obsolete, the dawn of wireless connectivity is blooming
at full speed. With several top brands introducing feature-optimised yet affordable Bluetooth
headphones in the market, buying one doesn’t have to be a costly affair.
For most, Bluetooth headphone prices are the chief determining factor when picking a model.
However, it is important to remember that choosing Bluetooth headphones is as much about
audio quality, battery life and comfort as price. Keeping these factors in mind, we’ve curated the following list of the best Bluetooth headphones you can purchase without spending more than ₹1,500.
JBL T460BT Extra Bass Headphones
Bass lovers cannot miss these on-the-ear headphones from JBL. The 32mm dynamic drivers of
these Bluetooth headphones deliver JBL’s punchy pure bass sounds to revolutionise your audio
experiences. Thanks to the long-lasting battery fueling their performance, these headphones
can easily last 11 hours of uninterrupted playback sessions on a single full charge. Thanks to
their flat-foldable design and snug, on-the-ear fit, these headphones tick both the portability and comfort boxes on your checklist. All this, paired with the sub-₹1,500 price of the headphones, makes it a budget-friendly pick.
Boult Audio ProBass X1-WL Earphones
Boult ProBass headphones blend an aesthetic design with unmatched practicality. The noise-
isolating aerospace-grade drivers and micro woofers ensure that these headphones deliver
bass that’s not just crisp but also crystal clear. The Bluetooth v5.0 support of these headphones
ensures broad spectrum compatibility, faster connectivity and more stable connections.
Whether it be sweat, water or dust, nothing can compromise the performance of these IPX5-
rated headphones. Thus, you can meet your daily pedometer targets or work out in the gym
without worrying about damaging your Bluetooth headphones. Furthermore, you can enjoy
instant calls and music controls via the in-line controls on the flexi neckband of the device or
activate the voice assistance feature with just a simple touch!
boAt Rockerz 450 Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones
While on-the-ear headphone prices tend to be quite high, these Bluetooth headphones from
boAt don’t quite fit the pattern. Available against an affordable price tag of around ₹1,000, boAt Rockerz 450 lets you immerse yourself in powerful and captivating soundscapes. Thanks to the 40mm premium drivers, every subtle nuance in the audio is amplified and polished. With the 15- hour-long battery backup, these Bluetooth headphones can easily outlast your most extended playback sessions. You don’t have to worry about comfort during these long playback sessions as these headphones sport well-cushioned adaptive ear cups and a headband.
Zebronics Zeb-Symphony Wireless In-Ear Neckband Earphone
Thanks to the headphones’ dual Bluetooth pairing feature, you can simultaneously pair them
with up to two devices and enjoy music playback for up to 13 hours. Compatible with all Android and iOS devices, Zeb-Symphony can be paired with a smartphone, laptop or tab to enjoy immersive audio sessions anytime, anywhere. These Bluetooth headphones come with a stylish splash-proof neckband that allows you to run, work out or jog without worrying about slippage. The neckband also sports integrated music, call and voice assistant controls so that you don’t have to fish out your smartphone in between a jamming session. To ensure a tangle-free experience, the Bluetooth headphones sport two magnetic earpieces that help avoid the
messiness that usually accompanies wired headsets.
Sony WI-C200 Wireless In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones
These Sony headphones are perfect for those looking for reliable Bluetooth headphones that
can efficiently power their audio playback sessions without requiring frequent refuels. While
these Bluetooth headphones boast a total battery life of 15 hours, they also come with a quick
charge feature that minimises your downtime. This feature is a saviour for times when you’re in a hurry because just a 10-minute recharging session gives you enough battery life for a 60-
minute playback session. Equipped with 9mm drivers, these Bluetooth headphones sufficiently
meet Sony’s lofty audio standards. The behind-the-neck design of these headphones and their
magnetic earpieces further add to their comfort quotient and portability advantage. Apart from
a built-in mic and easy control buttons, you also get voice assistant support with these Sony
headphones. All this more than justifies the headphones’ price of ₹1,500.
While the prices of these headphones fall within ₹1,500, each model offers a different fit and
finish. Remember to prioritise your audio preferences when picking a model from this list or
looking through more options.
