Earlier when mobile phones were only meant to call, earphones were not generally used. But today with the growing reach of internet  and decreasing phone prices ,smartphones have become ubiquitous for the modern man.

A few years back, people used earphones to only listen to offline content on their phones. But due to price wars, internet has become more accessible to the common man and hence a lot of digital content is consumed online on YouTube, Saavn, Netflix etc.

No matter whoever singer you love to listen to, until and unless you have a quality pair of headphones you cannot enjoy the real beauty of music. Bob Marley has truly said about music “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain”. So, it is very important to invest in a good pair of earphones/headphones. While earphones are portable, they do not offer the same level of sound quality  compared to a headphone. Here we will try to find the best headphones you can get under Rs 5000.
