    Sound Magic ES 18 @ 600Rs are the best ones for under 2500Rs range. I’ve got two of them and never had any complaints about sound quality. Should’ve been included in the gift guide :(

    From the earphones mentioned above I have sennheiser mx 170 and sony xb30ex, but none of them can beat Apple’s new earpods md827zm/a. Apple’s earpods are rediculously comfertable and has the best bass and surround sound from all the earphones I had till date. So anybody thinking of buying new earphones go for apple’s earpods. Highly recommened!!!

      Yes, they are worth. I have till now used all in-ears.
      2 earphones from Sony(damaged) . 2 in-ear from Sennheiser. 1 headphone from sennheiser.
      and also have the white Chrome Tekfusion. I will say that they are actually good. But are heavy and little uncomfortable!
