The best earbuds 2019: The best in-ear headphones for any budget in India

In-ear headphones are a complicated category – some users find them to be relieving them while others don’t like something being placed right in their ears. However, they have their own benefits. 

Light and compact enough for the gym without sacrificing on audio quality, in-ear headphones are suited for more or less every situation you can think of throwing at them – running, biking, hiking or simply walking around town.

Ideally, the best in-ear headphones (often referred to as earphones) should be ultra-comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Newer models might be completely wire-free, but if battery life is a concern for you, you might want a pair of wired buds. 

We're constantly reviewing new pairs of earphones, so we're always updating this list as we find better ones available.

Here are the top 10 best earbuds, ordered by audio performance-to-price ratio:
