The market for affordable true wireless earbuds has seen immense competition of late thanks to the post-pandemic change in our lifestyles. We’ve had homegrown brands like Boat, Noise etc. giving the Chinese OEMs a stiff run for their money.

This segment has seen tremendous growth recently, and every other brand is launching new true wireless earbuds every month. These tiny gadgets offer the convenience of going wire-free and add to the style quotient as well. 

The fact that a lot of smartphone makers have removed the 3.5 mm headphone jack has also forced users to go wireless.

Last but not the least, the number of features that you get in an affordable pair of earbuds itself is enough to rake in massive sales numbers. Features like Active Noise Cancellation – which was once considered to be a feature limited to super-premium earbuds and headphones, are also available in some of these earbuds and people are happy to experience them. But some brands have been fooling consumers in the name of ENC, but that's not the real noise cancellation, beware.

If you’re in the market looking for a pair of affordable earbuds, then you’d be spoilt for choices and thanks to the frequent sales that both Amazon and Flipkart host, these products become even more affordable.

Let us look at the best TWS under Rs. 2,000 in India that you can buy right now.
