3. Sony MDR-XB450 On-Ear EXTRA BASS Headphones
30mm drivers, 24 ohms
The Sony MDR-XB450 headphones are a budget yet impressively built pair. The swiveling ear-cups have a concentric metallic styling which mimics a vinyl or a CD depending on how you look at it. Although the headphones have been made of plastic they seem relatively well made and durable, not to forget that thy are fold-able. Thankfully the cable is serrated, flat and therefore tangle free. On a different but related note, the headphones are comfortable although the headband is devoid of any padding.
The Sony XB series of headphones and earphones are supposed to have extra bass and this is exactly what these headphones offer. In other words the bass is strong, clean and overemphasized. As a result of extra bass the mids are a bit hollow and recessed. The highs are present with good clarity albeit they are a bit laid back. To summarize Sony XB450 headphones are a funky looking, bass heavy pair of headphones and subsequently one of the best headphones under 2000 rupees in India.

JBL Tune 500 have a somewhat warm sound signature. For example they have excellent bass output which will satisfy everyone. However the mid-range is a bit veil and as a result instrument separation suffers. On the other hand treble is smooth and wholesome although lacking a bit in extension. In short the JBL Tune 500 headphones perform decently especially when considering their sub ₹ 2000 price.

However highs are a bit disappointing and lack in details and crispness. On the upside the bass is good and packs a decent punch. In totality the Philips UpBeat wired headphones are a good option and one of best headphones under 2000 rupees in India.
