Sony released the highly-anticipated Sony WF-1000XM3 true wireless earbuds in India to much critical acclaim. The earbuds are now available at a heavily discounted price of Rs 9,990 on Amazon. The popular earbuds come equipped with best-in-class noise cancellation abilities enabled by Sony’s QN1e processor. It won’t give you as much isolation as quality ANC cans, however, for earphones, the ANC is one of the best money can buy at this moment. The earphones also have a classy design with a matte black surface and copper highlights. You get a total battery life of 24 hours, with 6 hours on the buds themselves and a respectable 18 hours via the charging case. The 6mm drivers combined with Sony’s QN1e processor gives you a fairly balanced sound profile, featuring exquisite lows and lively mids. The Sony WF-1000XM3 can be used with Sony’s companion app that allows users to tweak features and settings, and control Active Noise Cancellation and other profiles. There’s no official IP rating though, which is one of the few cons.

If you’re looking for a pair of earphones to satisfy your inner audiophile, the Shure AONIC 215 wired earphones are a good choice. The earphones come with a flat sound signature and sound excellent for the price point. It also comes with a Sound Isolating design to minimise ambient noise and keep your hearing experience pristine. These are wired earphones so you can connect them to your source device via a 3.5mm audio jack and the cable houses an integrated remote and microphone. The microphone is one of the best under Rs 10,000, so you will have no issues when making calls with these buds. The earbuds themselves can be detached from the cable and stored separately when not in use. Moreover, the build quality also screams premium. These earbuds are available in four colours – white, black, clear and blue. These aren’t exactly feature-rich earphones, but the main attraction here is the pristine flat sonic signature that will please most purists and audiophiles.

These are the mid-range IEMs in FiiO’s FD lineup and they perform exceptionally well for the price. They are also extremely well-built and robust.

The sub-bass quality of these earphones is exceptional and it sounds very natural. The mids are slightly recessed but they sound pretty detailed as well and the treble range is energetic and has good attack. Additionally, the buds are also Hi-Res audio certified. Overall, these are exceptional wired earbuds for the price with excellent build quality and great sound.

If you’re looking for a relatively affordable pair of true wireless earphones with stellar sound quality, you likely won’t find anything better than the Lypertek Tevi under 10K in the Indian market. The brand itself isn’t very renowned, in India at least, but the Lypertek Tevi is creating quite a bit of stir in the audiophile circles. Upon testing the device, we found the Lypertek Tevi to be one of the most musical pairs of truly wireless earphones we’ve had the pleasure of listening to, especially at the sub 10K price range. The sound is open, natural and well-balanced, with oodles of detail and character. Not just the stellar sound, you also get a massive battery life of 70 hours, aptX support, solid physical controls, and a simple yet classy design. These may very well be the best value for money purchase in the true wireless segment owing to the sheer quality of the sound and is currently one of our top picks for truly wireless earphones under 10K.

Priced at Rs 9,999, the Oppo Enco X comes with an eye-catching spec sheet and good performance. The company has partnered with high-end Danish audio brand, Dynaudio, to bring compelling sound quality to this price segment. Equipped with Active Noise Cancellation, wireless charging, and other premium features, the Oppo Enco X are 'flagship killers’, giving premium competitors from Sony, Bose, Jabra, Sennheiser, and Apple a serious run for their money. The earphones offer good ANC, excellent sound and a plethora of features making them a value for money purchase that most people won’t regret. The earphones are not perfect, with issues such as finicky touch controls, average battery life and unreliable auto-pause and play functionality. However, the audio experience you get from the coaxial dual-drivers created in collaboration with Dynaudio is excellent for this price range.

Ex OnePlus co-founder, Carl Pei's venture dubbed "Nothing" generated quite a bit of buzz in the tech community. The first product from the newly-founded company – the Nothing Ear 1 – proved to be quite the hit amongst users primarily due to its unique transparent design. The Nothing Ear 1 is also a feature-packed pair of truly wireless earbuds, although there are some misses such as lack of voice assistant support and mediocre wear detection performance. Still, it gives high-end TWS earphones a solid run for their money. The earphones also come with pretty good V-shaped sound and effective Active Noise Cancellation for the price.

Sporting the 'Pro' moniker, the OnePlus Buds Pro is a feature-packed pair of TWS earphones complete with Active Noise Cancellation, pressure-sensitive controls, Qi wireless charging, app support, and much more. Additionally, they are well-built, have a simple yet classy look, and are supremely comfortable. Coming to the sound signature of the OnePlus Buds Pro, these earbuds have a pleasing sound signature for the most part, that not only highlights the bass, but also the mids. The bass is pretty exaggerated in this range in comparison to the ideal range, so there can be slight boominess at times in some tracks, yet they sound good in most instances. The OnePlus Buds Pro houses a triple microphone setup which is pretty decent for making calls.

pros Pros
  • Comfortable and secure fit
  • Loaded with premium features
  • IP55 rated earbuds and IPX4 rated charging case
  • Great Active Noise Cancellation performance
cons Cons
  • Slight distortion in bass and highs
  • No volume controls
  • LHDC codec supported only on a few phones
  • Loss in detail in the upper bass

Priced at Rs 9,999, the Google Pixel Buds A-Series is a solid mid-range TWS with good sound and microphone quality, a secure and comfortable fit, and excellent integration with Google Assistant. The battery life is also pretty decent but not the best we've seen in this price range. They're essentially a more stripped-down version of the 2020 Pixel Buds. With these buds, Google is banking heavily on handsfree Google Assistant integration to make a case for themselves since they don't have other prevalent features at this price range such as Active Noise Cancellation. The handsfree Assistant integration is very convenient and we found ourselves using it a lot on these buds. So, if seamless Google Assistant integration is something you've got your eyes set on, look no further than the Google Pixel Buds A-Series.

pros Pros
  • Good detail in mids and highs
  • Secure and comfortable fit
  • Handsfree Google Assistant
  • Great microphone
cons Cons
  • Muted bass response on Normal EQ setting
  • App doesn't let users customise controls
  • Adaptive Sound doesn't provide adequate isolation
  • Volume levels are a tad low
