10 Best Earphones Under 500 Rs in 2017 ( For Bass Lovers)

Are you looking for best earphone for your mobile? Are you confused between so many earphones? Then relax, sit back and read this article, I have worked hard to find all the best earphones under 500 Rs for bass lovers in 2017 available in India.

I prefer bass over treble. Don’t expect excellent bass from an earphone under 500Rs. These earphones are good for regular use with decent bass.

If you want the best output from any earphone, then you should know how to set equaliser. Usually, mobiles have a five band equaliser. To increase bass level raise up the first two bands. To change treble level change the position of the last band usually, the 5th band.

3rd and the 4th band are for vocals. Mid bands used to increase and decrease volume. Typically, I listen high bass, low treble, and low volume music. So I raise the first two bands and lower down the rest bars in the equalizer.

I have used all the earphones given below. Based on that experience, I have compiled this list of 10 best earbud type earphones below 500 Rs which you can buy online and offline.

  5. ravi says:

    which one is better jbl or Phillip actions fit

    • Admin says:

      Jbl T100A has better bass than Philips action fit earphone. Deep bass enhances the listening experience. So if bass is your priority buy JBL otherwise both have almost same audio quality.

    • Admin says:

      Jbl T100A has mic, whereas Philips action fit earphone doesn’t have inbuilt mic. So JBL earphone is a better pick.

        • Admin says:

          I am not 100% sure as I haven’t used One Plus 3 mobile. But I think that there will be no compatibility issues of JBL earphones with One plus 3.

          JBL, Sennheiser , Philips etc these are standard companies. Their earphones are compatible with almost all mobiles with 3.5mm jack.

          These days compatibility issue with earphones is very rare. All companies follow universal standards.

    • Admin says:

      I haven’t tested Sony earphones on Gionee sets, so I can’t tell you whether it will work with Gionee or not. But JBL earphone will work perfectly with your Gionee handset. Usually branded earphones are compatible with all major mobile manufacturers.

  12. Mr.Parmar says:

    I want to buy one budget-oriented earphones around 500rs. I m looking for good build quality, great sound quality, little bit bass, comfort and of course it should be have durability bcoz I want to use it for a long time. In sum up I want best one in this price segment.I am little bit confused about mi basic, Audio Technica ATH-CLR100 BK, Jbl T100A, Skullcandy S2DUDZ, boat BassHeads 200, House of Marley Little Bird EM-JE061-BK Earphones with Mic. So please suggest me best one among of that. Apart from this if u know batter then this in this range please comment. Help me guys. Thankx in advance.

    • Admin says:

      Jbl T100A , Audio Technica ATH-CLR100 BK and Skullcandy S2DUDZ. You can choose any one among above three. I have listed them in decreasing order of priority. So first one is best then comes Audio Technica and last Skullcandy. Rest 2 earphones mentioned by you are also good, but not as much as above earphones in this range.

  13. Raju says:

  14. arindom says:

    heyy that was a really really nice post. Thanks a lot. I want to buy a bose headphone. But one of my friend suggest me that beat headphones are must more better than bose. Is it true?

    • Admin says:

      I am glad that you like the post. Now coming to your question, If you compare two reputable brands , then you will not gonna get clear cut answer, who is best? So firstly set your buying criteria whether you need booming bass or crystal clear sound. You prefer modern looks or classic ones.

      Beats headphones have modern and sleek looks and have good bass. But Boss headphones have classic design and are much more comfortable to ears and gives crystal clear audio output.

      So if you ask which one I will choose among them, then definitely I will go with Beats headphones coz I am basshead.

  15. Rohit thakur says:

    Hey bro plz help me I m confused between jbl t100a and
    Philips SHQ1200
    Which one I buy for watching movies listening song for long time good sound quality and comfortable in ear

    • Admin says:

      JBL T100A is much better in every aspect when compared to othets. You can also consider T150A which is slightly better than T100A but for that you have to pay a little extra. So go for JBL earbud.

  17. Dinakeswar goud says:

  19. aman says:

    Which earphones is better in these for my mi redmi 3s phone.

    • Admin says:

      All earphones given above are compatible with most of the handset manufacturers that follow audio standards ( including Redmi phones). So there is no compatibility issue with major mobile manufacturers.

      As given above in this post best earphone under 700Rs is JBl T100A. If you don’t want to spend much, then choose any one from above list with decreasing priority as you go down.

  20. Ravi says:

    How About soundmagic es18 vst Jbl T100 A.

    • Admin says:

      Soundmagic ES18 is slightly better than JBL T100A in terms of bass output. But On the other hand, JBL T100A has mic for calling and better build quality. Both earphones are good for music lovers. Choose any one depending on your requirement.

  21. Karthik Deep says:

    Long ago I requested you to make a post for over the ear headphones for bass lovers. Did you make it yet?

    • Admin says:

      From summer onwards I got busy with web development. So due to lack of time, I haven’t written it yet. But I have tested and picked up the best headphones and earphones ranging from 200Rs to 2000Rs.

      Soon I will write about all of them. Till then if you have any query then ask here.

  22. Karthik Deep says:

    I had bought Philips SHL5000/00. I felt it’s bass overwhelming, and it destroyed other sounds, even though I’m a bass lover. So I returned it. Was my judgement correct or did I just get a bad unit?
    Also now I’m planning to buy Philips shl3210. What’s your opinion?

    • Admin says:

      For 600Rs Philips shl5000 is a good pick. Though ear starts paining if you use it for more than 2 hours continuously. Other than that everything seems ok to me.

      Philips SHL 3210 is far better than former in every aspect, for that you have to pay double the money of former.

      Sony MDR XB450 is the best option for bass lovers under 2000Rs ( but only if you don’t have any problem with on ear heaphones).

      So if you want over ear heaphone which are more comfortable then buy Philips SHL 3210 otherwise buy Sony MDR XB450 for extra punchier bass.

  23. šañdêép says:

    Hey! Nice post. I wanted to ask u which earphones should i buy if i want to listen to music while exercising. I’m looking for earphones under 500. It’s OK if the earphone does not hav a mic.

  26. Tejas Page says:

    Is Philips SHQ1200 worth the price?

  27. Karan says:

    Can you please suggest some earphones with the following characteristics:
    Price around rs500
    Flat cables (preferable)
    Mic
    Should last long
    Should be good for commuting(I.e block out ambient noise)
    I was thinking of buying either a mi basic, creative ep 600m or some Samsung earphones since they last so long. Please suggest as to what I should do.

  28. Admin says:

    Among all the three options that you have mentioned above, Creative EP600m is the best option. You will not get decent Samsung earphones in this price.

    But I will also suggest you to read this post again and pick one earphone that suits your budget and requirement. All earphones here are best in their price range.

    If you could raise your budget, then buy JBL T100A ( mentioned above) or JBL T150A whichever yo get lower in price.
    This headset will fit all your requirements.

  29. Karan says:

    The ep600 has garnered many negative reviews on amazon regarding its build quality and life. Are they true?

    • Admin says:

      Built quality is just ok, but sound quality is better than others. So overall its a good package.

      Talking about reviews on Amazon or Flipkart, you will get negative reviews for every product. So I don’t judge earphones completely by reviews.

      But if you want built quality and music both then add more money and buy JBL T100A, as stated earlier.

      You can also consider Philips earphones mentioned in this post. They also have a decent built quality and audio output.

  30. aullick rathaur says:

    bhai admin tune bola tha earphone dilaega badhiya sa, bhai kuch suggest kar de, par bina bud wala.

    • Admin says:

      Bro, I never had a conversation with you. But this post and site is meant to help others in choosing better quality products.

      You haven’t specified your budget. If your budget is in 500 Rs range then buy Philips SHQ 1200, details given above.

      If you have higher budget specify in comment section.

  35. Hariz says:

    I want an earphone that’s durable with good bass…. My budget is around rs.700..& i have a redmi note 3….plz suggest me one…

    • Admin says:

      Right now Amazon have reduced the price of Sennheiser CX 180 Earphone. It is priced at 719Rs that fits your budget and music requirements too.

      Frankly speaking, this is the best headphone under 1000Rs because of its awesome sound quality and durability. You will also get 2 years warranty that none of other earphones have in this budget.

  36. Darshan says:

    Under rs.700 .. Please lease suggest me….my requirement is high sound and brilliant bass…with mic.

    • Admin says:

      I have almost finished a post about earphones under 1000 Rs. So if you could wait one day then you will get all the best options along with their pros and cons.

      But for now you can choose from 2 earphones Asus ASHU001 zen earphone and Soundmagic ES18 with mic. Both are good earphones. I would prefer Asus.

      There are JBL options also, C100SI and T150A. But both JBL earphones have slightly low bass and high treble then Asus and Soundmagic.

      So first priority is to Asus then Soundmagic and then JBL C100SI. Buy from Amazon, you will get better deal there.

  37. Ameya says:

  40. ankit says:

    Is ubon products nice in bass??

    • Admin says:

      Ubon earphones are average. If we talk about cheap earphones, then Ubon earphones are good. But regarding audio quality and durability, Ubon earphones doesn’t stand anywhere as compared to branded headsets.

      They lack audio clarity and natural bass. Have you even noticed the difference between a music system in auto-rickshaw and branded music systems. The Same difference is in Ubon earphones and branded headsets.

      So if the price is the primary factor, then Ubon is ok otherwise, spend more and buy Sennheiser or JBL earphones. My personal prefer is to Sennheiser.

  41. Amit says:

  44. vignesha says:

    I have micromax unite A102 handset.I wanted buy a earphones under 500rs.which one is best for this?

    • Admin says:

      You handset won’t create any major difference in buying earphones. So I would suggest you buy JBL T100A if you could raise your budget to 650 Rs. Otherwise, for 500 Rs Philips SHQ 1200 headset is the best option.

  45. Owic says:

    Mi in ear is also a best earphones

  46. Sakav says:

    Can you please suggest which will be the best earbuds to buy ? I dont like earphones which goes deep inside the ear,i want ear fitting earbuds, can u tell which is best in that type?

    • Admin says:

      If your want to spend around 500 Rs, then you can consider Philips SHQ1200 which is given above in this post. This earphone doesn’t go deep in the ear. You can also think about Sennheiser MX 170 and Philips SHE3205 both doesn’t go deep inside the ear. Last two earphones are more costly than the first one. So you can choose best for you depending on the price that you are willing to pay.

  47. Rpb says:

    Can u tell me about boat headphone Boat Basshead 225 and about its quality and it’s performance.

    • Admin says:

      Boat Basshead 225 is good for bass lovers. It has a mic and pretty good music quality. So overall Boat Basshead is worth buying. There is a little fitting issue with this earphone. So there will be a problem while using it in the gym or outdoor sports activities. But for Indoor usage you will have no problem.

  48. arindom says:

    heyyyyy how are you? I hope you are fine. I just got my jbl t100a from amazon. Its good but not that good i was expecting specially the bass but its sound is clear. So im thinking to return it. So could you plz suggest me any good ear phone around 850rs whis has a amazing bass and sound quality.

    • Admin says:

      I am fine bro. As your priority is to bass and sound quality, Asus AHSU001 earphone will be good for you. You can also consider Sennheiser CX 180 but Asus earphone has somewhat better bass. You will also get an inbuilt mic with Asus zen earphone. Both earphones will cost you around 800 Rs.

      Sennheiser has better durability and sound clarity and Asus earphone has better bass. Overall, both are good earphones. If I were you I would definitely buy Asus earphone because I am a bass lover.

  49. Neel says:

    How is boat basshead, is it better than philips??

    • Admin says:

      You have to clearly specify which earphone of Philips you are comparing with Boat headphone. In some cases Boat earphones are better. But in most cases Philips beats Boat earphones in terms of audio quality and durability.

      We can’t compare companies with each other to decide which earphone is better. If you are confused, just pick one earphone from both company in the same range and test them.

  50. nikhil says:

    What about boAt headset 200 its good or not

    • Admin says:

      Boat headset 200 is worth buying under 500 Rs. I will soon add this here in this post. If we strictly see for best earphone under 500 Rs, boat 200 in the ear headphone is best option now. But above 500 you got many options, JBL T100A and many more.

  51. Neel says:

    Which is the best earphones below 1500-2000 for best clarity of sound and bass?
