The Realme Buds Air 2 is one of the company’s latest affordable TWS. It is an extremely feature-laden pair of true wireless earphones that comes equipped with Active Noise Cancellation, Bluetooth v5.2 connectivity, customisable controls via the Realme Link app, and good battery life. So, if you’re someone that travels to work every day in a noisy environment and would like to shut out most background sounds, the Realme Buds Air 2 is a good choice for you without breaking the bank. When we tested out the Realme Buds Air 2, we found the Active Noise Cancellation to be pretty good for the price. It cuts out most low-frequency sounds such as AC hum, engine noise, and others. The earphones also have a pretty solid battery backup of approximately 5 hours with ANC turned off. With the charging case, you’re looking at about 25 hours of total battery life. The earphones also come equipped with IPX5 water resistance and have a nice, snug fit in the ear, so gym-goers can wear these earphones during their workout sessions without any worry. The earphones sport 10mm drivers that deliver warm, dynamic sound that should work well with most genres of music. They sound the best when listening to genres such as pop, EDM, hip hop, and Bollywood. According to the frequency graph of the earphones, the Realme Buds Air 2 has slightly exaggerated mid-bass and high-mids, which will make bass beats and vocals stand out in the mix. The sound signature is easy on the ears and works well with most modern-day tracks. Overall, the Realme Buds Air 2 is a solid budget true wireless earphone under Rs 5,000 that offers features and functionality without burning a hole in your wallet.

The Oppo Enco W51 is an extremely good-looking pair of true wireless earphones sporting an eye-catching pearlescent effect on the back of each earbud. These earphones will surely turn heads when you’re wearing them. The Oppo W51 is another feature-packed pair of TWS, so you get Active Noise Cancellation, auto pause/play, Qi wireless charging support, and much more with these buds. The Active Noise Cancellation on the Oppo W51 is one of the best we’ve tested under Rs 5,000. It cuts down on background noise to a considerable extent, so if you’re travelling in noisy conditions, or if you work in a noisy office, the Oppo W51 can give provide you with a pretty decent escape from the chaos. The earphones also come equipped with IP54 water and dust resistance, so they should be robust enough to be used in less than ideal conditions as well, whether you’re trekking, hiking, gymming, or running. The Oppo W51 houses a 7mm dynamic driver along with dual TPU composite graphene diaphragms. The earphones have an overall good sound output with dynamic upper bass response, decent vocals, and detailed highs. The earphones will please bass lovers due to their slightly exaggerated sub-bass response which makes EDM, Bollywood, and Pop tracks sound lively and thumpy. As for battery life, the Oppo W51 comes with a total battery life of 20 hours with Active Noise Cancellation turned on, and about 24 hours with ANC turned off, which should be good enough for most users. If you’re looking for an inexpensive TWS with striking looks and a ton of features, the Oppo Enco W51 is an excellent choice under Rs 5,000.

pros Pros

  • Effective ANC performance
  • Qi wireless charging case
  • Impressive design and fit
  • IP54 dust and water-resistant

cons Cons

  • Imprecise touch controls
  • Limited onboard controls for non-Oppo phones
  • Lacklustre battery life
  • Sibilance causes listening fatigue

The Jabra Elite Active 65t is one of the most premium looking pairs of TWS earphones under Rs 5,000. The earphones first launched at Rs 14,999, so it’s only natural that its build quality will be a notch above the rest even 3 years after its initial launch. The earphones are also IP56 rated for water and dust resistance, so they can easily survive sweat and even water splashes. The earphones connect to the Jabra Sound+ app and can use a host of features via this app. You can manually tweak the equaliser as per your preference, toggle HearThrough mode (to hear ambient sounds), and more. The device also comes with about 15 hours of total battery life, which is slightly less by 2021 standards, but if you don’t use your earbuds too much in a day, it should last you at least a couple of days. The earphones deliver tight and clear bass response, which is not overwhelming. The mids have good detail and the highs are reproduced decently as well. So, what you get is a more balanced sound signature than most true wireless earbuds under 5K that are mostly bass-forward or bass-biased. If you’re a bass lover, we’d suggest looking at the first two options. However, if you like a cleaner, more neutral sound, definitely go for the Jabra Elite Active 65t.

pros Pros

  • Impressive, balanced audio performance
  • Good clarity
  • Truly wireless
  • IP56 rated sweat and dust resistant
  • The companion app is versatile

cons Cons

  • Intermittent sibilance in upper-mids
  • Weirdly difficult to open the case
  • Multi-device connectivity issues

The OnePlus Buds Z is an excellent set of affordable true wireless earphones, especially if you have a OnePlus device. The earphones are the successors of the original OnePlus Buds, and even though they come with more features, they are priced lower than the original Buds. The earphones have a snug, comfortable fit for most ears and come with IP55 dust and water resistance, so those into fitness can easily use them as their gym or running companions. The TWS is powered by Bluetooth v5.0 and houses 10mm dynamic drivers. The sound quality of the OnePlus Buds Z is respectable for the price, with strong lows, punchy bass, and decent mids. However, the treble is slightly underrepresented, so they are not very clear in the mix. Nevertheless, the sound quality is perfectly good for the price. The earphones also come with a pretty good battery life with 5 hours of continuous use from the earbuds and 20 hours in total with the charging case. You also get snappy fast charge, where charging the earphones for only 10 minutes provides you with a whopping 3 hours of playtime! These earphones are also good for mobile gamers due to their low latency. OnePlus claims a latency of 103ms which is activated when playing games. If you’re looking for an affordable TWS which is good for mobile gaming or/and an active lifestyle, the OnePlus Buds Z could be the perfect choice for you.

Powered by the QCC3020 chipset and Bluetooth v5.0, the Crossbeats Evolve is a solid, no-nonsense pair of TWS earphones under Rs 5,000. They have a striking design with a unique half-transparent look. However, the large size of the earbuds may not fit all sized ears well, especially those with smaller ears, so keep that in mind. The buds house 9mm dual drivers and come with IPX4 water resistance. The Crossbeats Evolve has a pretty neutral sound profile with prominent highs and detailed mids. The bass response isn’t very forward, but it should be good enough for most users, other than bass lovers. The Crossbeats Evolve also come with excellent battery backup. On a single charge, the earbuds themselves can run for 12 hours before needing to be charged up again. That’s the highest playtime on the earbuds in this list, so if battery life is paramount to you, the Crossbeats Evolve is an excellent choice under 5K.
