Brainwavz Omega

The Brainwavz Omega is a new entry to the IEM segment and offers crisp audio. It offers decent, balanced audio, and uses 6mm driver units with frequency response of 20-20000 Hz, covering the entire audible spectrum. They are well within in the budget and are our choice if you are buying a best earphone under 1000.

1More Piston Fit

The 1More Piston Fit is fairly impressive for its price. It offers a strong low frequency performance, along with decent mids and clean highs. It may sound a tad shrill, but the audio balance is warm and enjoyable for volume levels up to 70 percent, which is loud enough for most listeners. It is also slightly less expensive than the best performer here, which makes it an even better value-for-money buy.

The JBL T100A offers deeper bass, and bigger soundstage. The build quality is good, and the fit of the headphone is quite snug. This one should please the bass heads, too.

Altec Lansing MZX147

Altec Lansing MZX147

The Altec Lansing MZX147 is a very good-sounding pair of earphones priced at Rs. 780. It offers excellent balance of audio, but disappoints in terms of its build quality. Everything taken into consideration, it is one of our recommended buys.

Evidson Audiowear R5

Evidson Audiowear R5

The Evidson Audiowear R5 is a genuinely impressive in-ear headphone under 1000. It delivers impressive audio, but ranks below the Brainwavz Omega and the Altec Lansing MZX147 owing to the compromised mids, slightly shrill highs and a lack in build quality.
