Best TWS Earbuds Under 5000 Rupees [November 2020]

With the growing craze for wireless gadgets, earbuds are definitely leading in the race. The earbuds market is estimated to cross $8 Million by 2023. So, what are some great TWS earbuds under 5000 Rupees for you?

I have been using neckbands, wire earphones, headphones, and even earbuds for a brief amount of time.

I’d definitely say that truly wireless earbuds prove to be a boon in some situations. It might not be for everyone but it is definitely for a particular set of audience.

5 Reasons why I like Earbuds

  • Charge on the go – Most of us travel and remain outdoors for most of the time. So what if the Bluetooth earphones lose their charge? Earbuds have an edge here. They can be charged anywhere because its protective case is the charging port.
  • Save the battery – Is it stressful for you that your earbuds won’t survive for long? Just use one of the pieces. The other piece still remains fully charged.
  • Best for workouts – Be it any cable-earphones or neckband, wires would annoy you while working out. But earbuds save you here.
  • Longer battery life – Compared to any Bluetooth Headphone or neckband, earbuds always give you more battery life due to its chargeable case.
  • Pocket-Friendly – Traditional earphones keep entangling themselves no matter where and how you keep them. Likewise, neckbands only hang around your neck when not in use. But earbuds are good for your pockets.

Here are some TWS Earbuds Under 5000 in Ascending Order of Price

Best TWS Earbuds Under 5000 Rupees

Till a few months back, we didn’t have many options. Either we had Apple’s Airpods worth Rs 25k or we had some cheap Chinese brands.

But now, many larger players have jumped in the game of earbuds. Let’s see the best TWS earbuds under 5000 Rupees in India.

1] OnePlus Buds

Being the same parent company, most of the OnePlus features match to Oppo and Realme products. However, OnePlus being a premium brand goes one step further.

You get a 13.4mm drive with type C cable charging and that is great. Most importantly, it has a support of quick charging that will allow you to charge on the go.

Highlights of OnePlus Buds

  1. Touch support for various controls
  2. Fine sound quality along with built quality
  3. Charging Time = 80 minutes
  4. Battery Life (Buds) = 7 hours
  5. Battery Life (Boosted Charging From Case) = 30 hours

Cons of OnePlus Buds

  1. Noise cancellation is not too great

OnePlus Buds Z

Note: OnePlus Buds Z is a cheaper TWS earbuds from OnePlus and it is recently launched in India. The specifications seem better than OnePlus Buds.

2] Realme Buds Q

Realme Buds Q is the latest TWS Earbuds

Realme launched the latest earbuds to compete Redmi Earbuds S.

Looking at the technical specifications, I can only say that it might be slightly louder than Redmi Buds S and hence the battery will last a bit shorter.

Highlights of Realme Buds Q

  1. Customizable touch gestures
  2. Comfortable for most of the people
  3. Charging Time = 2 hours
  4. Battery Life (Buds) = 5 hours
  5. Battery Life (Boosted Charging From Case) = 20 hours

Cons of Realme Buds Q

  1. Audio tuning is not that great

3] Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds

Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds

Skullcandy is another major player in the audio industry and this product is definitely doing a great job in the market.

The Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Earbuds supports Bluetooth 5.0 and has a good quality of audio.

However, this is not at all a good product for calling. I am saying this because only the left bud has a mic. If you decide to remove it and use the right bud while calling then I am sure it won’t be a good experience.

These are the only earbuds that have a volume adjusting button. This makes it pretty unique among the competitors.

Highlights of Skullcandy Sesh

  1. Great Audio Quality
  2. Ability to Adjust the volume
  3. Charging Time = 2 hours
  4. Battery Life (Buds) = 3.5 hours
  5. Battery Life (Boosted Charging From Case) = 10 hours

Cons of Skullcandy Sesh

  1. Poor battery life
  2. Calling feature only for left earbud

4] MI Airdots Pro 2

MI Airdots Pro 2

MI Airdots Pro 2 is the successor of its previous MI Airdots Pro. Once again, it is a desperate efforts to copy Apple’s Airpods.

However, the product is good for its price range. I mean, not everyone has to do with the copied designs. Some people deliberately like such designs.

The case has sharp edges which might be pricky for some users while carrying in pockets. But no wonder, it’s not an issue for everyone.

Highlights of MI Airdots Pro 2

  1. IPX4 water-resistant rating
  2. Charging Time = 1 hour
  3. Battery Life (Buds) = 4 hours
  4. Battery Life (Boosted Charging From Case) = 14 hours

Cons of MI Airdots Pro 2

  1. Half in-ear design leads to sound spill
  2. The design may not be preferred by everyone

5] Redmi Earbuds S

Redmi Earbuds S

Redmi Earbuds S might be the cheapest option that you will get in the category of quality earbuds.

Highlights of Redmi Earbuds S

  1. Cheapest good quality earbuds you might get
  2. Decent audio quality
  3. Charging Time = 1.5 hours
  4. Battery Life (Buds) = 4 hours
  5. Battery Life (Boosted Charging From Case) = 12 hours

Cons of Redmi Earbuds S

  1. Type-C support is missing
  2. Only SBC codec supported

Redmi Earbuds 2C

Note: Xiaomi launched Redmi Earbuds 2C and it is exactly identical to Redmi Buds S. However it is cheaper and Low Latency Gaming Mode is absent in those buds. So, if you are not a gamer then that option is better for you.

6] OPPO ENCO W51 True Wireless Earphone [Most Recently Launched]

OPPO ENCO W31 True Wireless Earphone

Oppo Enco might be a similar name for the neckband as well as TWS earbuds. However, I personally found neckband better in this segment.

Also, being the same parent company as that of Realme, it seems that most of the features are inherited from the Realme.

Highlights of OPPO ENCO W51

  1. Fast Charging and Wireless charging is available
  2. Active Noise Cancellation
  3. Charging Time = 80 minutes (wired) | 2.5 hours (wireless)
  4. Battery Life (Buds) = 3.5 hours
  5. Battery Life (Boosted Charging From Case) = 20 hours

Cons of OPPO ENCO W51

  1. Some people felt discomfort while wearing for a longer duration
  2. Call quality is significantly poor

Note: In case of the unavailability of Oppo Enco W51, you can check out Oppo Enco W31.

7] Realme Buds Air Bluetooth Headset

Realme Buds Air Bluetooth Headset: Best TWS Earbuds under 5000

I personally found Realme Buds Air to be the best deal in this budget. For the number of features, it is offering at its cost, these buds seem to be the most value for money.

Realme Buds Air is the only product in this budget range that is giving wireless charging support and Type-C port for charging. Moreover, it has a gaming mode for low-latency along with the support of Bluetooth 5.0.

If you don’t know what latency is then I might want you to give you an example.

While playing PUBG, most of the wireless headphones give you a delay. You will shoot first and then you will hear the sound with a delay of a few microseconds.

The delay might not look huge but it is enough to get you killed in the game. This latency should be as low as possible.

Real gamers would understand this. If you are one – high-five 😉

Also, these earbuds provide you a feature of in-ear detection which means that it will automatically know when you remove it from your ears.

So if someone calls you while you are enjoying YouTube, you don’t have to pause it. Just remove the buds and the video or music will be paused automatically. Interesting, isn’t it?

Highlights of Realme Buds Air

  1. Gaming Mode with super-low latency
  2. Only earbuds in this range with support of Wireless charging and Type-C port
  3. Only earbuds with in-ear detection
  4. Charging Time = 1.5 hours
  5. Battery Life (Buds) = 3 hours
  6. Battery Life (Boosted Charging From Case) = 14 hours

Cons of Realme Buds Air

  1. Audio Quality becomes flat while using gaming mode
  2. Looks like a cheap attempt to copy Apple Airpods (My personal opinion)

8] JBL C100TWS True wireless in-ear Headphones

Best TWS Earbuds under 5000 - JBL C100TWS True wireless in-ear Headphones

JBL, as the brand represents itself, provides a great sound quality if we compare the competitors.

The wireless range is around 10 meters. Also, it supports the Bluetooth 5.0 version.

It might be bulky but it is the only earbuds in this price range that has different controls on the left and right buds.

For instance, a single press on the right bud will pause the music and a single press on the left bud will skip the music to the next track.

Moreover, if you press twice on the right but then you can change your music to the previous track. Pretty good feature!

Highlights of JBL C100TWS

  1. Different controls on both the buds that make it unique
  2. Great Audio Quality
  3. Charging Time = 2 hours
  4. Battery Life (Buds) = 5 hours
  5. Battery Life (Boosted Charging From Case) = 12 hours

9] Lenovo HT10 True Wireless Earbuds

Lenovo HT10 True Wireless Earbuds

Lenovo HT10 is the only product that gives you a support of AptX in this price range.

AptX is a feature that enhances the audio quality like that of wired earphones. It is good for those who have a keen interest in the beats. Also, it reduced the latency which is a good part here.

Moreover, the noise cancellation feature is present here.

Kudos for bringing this feature, Lenovo! I wish you would take care of your adopted child, Motorola, in a similar way!

Like others, these earbuds support Bluetooth 5.0 as well.

  1. Noise Cancellation is present
  2. Good sound quality
  3. AptX support with low latency

10] boAt Airdopes 441 TWS Ear-Buds

boAt Airdopes 441 TWS Ear-Buds

boAt has been a very large and old player when it comes to the audio products. Although they entered the TWS market late but they still brought a great product.

With 500 mAh battery case, it has 7nm drivers and additional bass effect. Noise cancellation is present along with Bluetooth 5.0 support.

Highlights of boAt Airdopes 441

  1. Type-C cable available
  2. IPX4 rating is present with water resistance
  3. Charging Time = 1.5 hours
  4. Battery Life (Buds) = 3 hours

Cons of boAt Airdopes 441

  1. Built quality is poor

11] Boult Audio AirBass MuseBuds [Newly Arrived]

If you checked the neckband from Boult, the built quality was average but it was cheaper in cost. It holds the same position for TWS earphones.

Even after entering the market after a long time, Boult still preferred to work on press buttons rather than touch features. Even plastic body makes the built-quality look cheaper.

However, the rubber hooks are the best features of these earbuds. They prove to be comfortable for long hours.

Highlights of Boult Audio AirBass MuseBuds

  1. IPX5 rating is present with water and sweat resistance
  2. Comfortable for longer hours due to external support on your ears
  3. Charging Time = 2 hours
  4. Battery Life (Buds) = 5.5 hours

Cons of Boult Audio AirBass MuseBuds

  1. Lack of noise cancellation
  2. Sound quality and built quality is average

Which Earbuds Should You Go For?

Unlike Neckbands, there are not any major highlights or differences in Earbuds. There are hardly any specialties and it all depends on the personal choices.

Some people might prefer budget over everything. I have already listed in ascending order at the top of the post.

Other than that, pros and cons of every item is present with the name. It’s your call.

So, these were some good and decent TWS earbuds under 5000 Rupees in India.

I want to make it clear that I don’t own any of the above earbuds.

I did my research from the technical specifications mentioned on their official websites and reviews from multiple users.
