Best true wireless earbuds under Rs 10,000 in India, for June 2020

The year 2020 will witness a massive growth in the True Wireless earbuds category in India and we’ve already seen that initial signs in the shipment of the recent reports. Although, there are some premium TWS earbuds available in the market, we’ve seen a big shift in the sub Rs 10,000 segment recently. 

A lot of companies including Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo, and Samsung have already launched their TWS earbuds in India over the fast few months. As with the current situation, we can consider the Rs 10,000 TWS segment as the top tier segment if not the flagships. It is also worth mentioning that TWS earbuds in this segment do not offer any active noise cancellation as of now, at least we don’t have any in India.  

In this segment, you get a good pair of TWS which sounds good and looks good. The major sacrifice you make by hopping on the TWS line is the battery. On average, you get around three to four hours on a single charge. But then again, you get unparalleled convenience.

The TWS market started exploding when Apple’s AirPods made its debut a couple of years ago. Of course, just like the other Apple products, the AirPods are also out of reach for many as they’re priced pretty high. But, there are many other True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earbuds in the market currently. If you are looking for a good pair of TWS, you’re at the right place. Check out our list of the best true wireless earbuds under Rs 10,000.

Oppo Enco Free is the company’s first TWS earbuds in India. It nails the basics in terms of design and battery life. The overall sound quality is enjoyable. It harnesses Bluetooth 5.0 technology to connect to both the buds at the same time. 

It uses a capacitive touch control chip to make the outer surface act as a navigation pad for all music controls. To control the media, you can tap and swipe. On a single charge, the earbuds will last up to 5 hours and with the included case, it will last up to 20 hours. 

The Oppo Enco Free is priced at Rs 7,990 and comes in three colour options - white, black, and pink. It is available on Flipkart.

This pair of earbuds look very similar to the Apple AirPods but comes at a very affordable price. The Realme Buds are a great entry point for anyone who's yet to jump on the true wireless earphone train. It also comes with a dedicated gaming mode, which offers a theoretical latency of just 120ms.

The Realme Buds Air feels rather flimsy, and the lid shuts close at the slightest of tugs. It comes with a tiny case with a Type-C port on the bottom. It also supports wireless charging. Featuring a 12mm dynamic bass boost driver, the earbuds offer punchy bass. 

The Realme Buds Air is priced at Rs 3,999 and comes in white, black, and yellow colour options. It can be purchased via Flipkart and Realme’s website.

Samsung Galaxy Buds

Samsung is not a new player in the world. In fact, they had launched the Gear Icon X even before Apple’s AirPods. The Samsung Galaxy Buds were introduced last year alongside the S10 series. 

If you own an Android phone, the Galaxy Buds offer easy connectivity, a comfortable fit, and a warm, bassy sound. If you don’t, you may miss out on some cool extra features offered by the Samsung Galaxy wearables app. 

The touch controls can be used to play/pause your music, skip tracks, answer and end calls, and launch Samsung’s voice assistant Bixby on compatible devices. Priced at Rs 9,990, the Galaxy Buds is available in white or black colour option on Flipkart.

This is Xiaomi’s first pair of TWS in India. This TWS harnesses Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and also supports LHDC (Low latency, high definition audio codec) which allows for 3x higher data throughput for a higher quality output. Featuring a large 14.2mm dynamic drivers, this is one of the best in its segment.  

As with most wireless earphones, even the Mi TWS 2 suffers from audio latency while gaming. For games such as PUBG where even a slight delay can cost you, these are less than ideal. 

It sports dual microphones, the secondary mic is here used as environmental noise suppression which is triggered when you get a call. On a single charge, the TWS can last over three hours. The case also supports fast charging via Type-C port, which only takes about an hour to go from empty to full.
