Sennheiser is a renowned earphones brand has quite a reputation in the Indian market. The company makes beast quality sound apparel and make them available at reasonable price.

The Sennheiser CX180 tops our list of best earphones under 1000. The main reason being the overall performance of this headset. Bass, treble, mids, and lows all are well-balanced to provide good listening experience. It also does pretty good in the design and build aspect.

The Sennheiser CX180 seems to be at the low-end when it comes to bass. It’s not like you get bad bass, the bass is just average. Also, the earphones lack a microphone which is pretty much a disappointment.

Other than that, these earphones are just excellent in terms of audio quality. They come close to the Audio-Technica CLR100 in terms of sound clarity. The build quality is pretty good as mentioned above, they feel good in the hand and not at all uncomfortable in the ears. While we are on the topic, those ear tips also do great when it comes to providing comfort and a sturdy fit. We also get extra ear tips with different sizes just in case you need any.
