A company known for making neutral-sounding in-ear monitors (IEMs), Brainwavz is, for the first time ever, foraying into making Bluetooth earphones. The Brainwavz BLU-100 Sport stands fifth in our list of 9 best earphones under Rs 3000.
Brainwavz have kept the look of this earphone simple with a utilitarian design. So if you are looking for flashy earphones then this shouldn’t be your choice. The cable of the BLU-100 is flat, tangle free and goes around your neck. The earbuds are place on each end of the cable and the inline remote falls perfectly in the middle near your mouth. This Bluetooth earphone is only available in black color. The ear buds fit perfectly in the ear thanks to the Comply 400 foam provided by Brainwavz.

The BLU-100 uses two 8mm dynamic drivers which do well for most of the portable devices. The Bluetooth can pair with two devices at one time. The sound signature is common to those provided by the other Brainwavz IEMs. They are quite loud for a Bluetooth earphones and hence do well in cancelling the passive noise.

The battery last only for 4 hours which is a great disappointment here.

SoundMagic E30 In-Ear Headphone
The SoundMagic E30 stands 6th in our list of 9 best earphones under Rs 3000 in India.
As said before SoundMagic earphones ae not known for their design and looks. The first impression the E30 provide isn’t so great. They are not exactly pretty though they are carefully designed in some respects. The earpiece is mounted on a cheap quality plastic. The cable just below the earpiece is curved giving it a curvy look so that it can go around your ear. This ensure a secure fit of the earpiece in your ear. The E30 is available in 4 different color variants. A generous amount of ear buds is provided so that you find your perfect fit. Besides that, a rubber ear hook is also provided. The hook house the cable and track around your earlobes, helping to keep them in place and getting rid of cable noise caused when then the wire makes contact with your clothing.
SoundMagic claims that the E30 delivers a balanced accurate sound and yes, they do. The sound quality is good, crisp and accurate. The treble is subtle and the bass is also pronounced. No extra bass gets added to your music. The E30 has a perfect sound reproduction. The treble is more clearly prominent while the bass is a little more reserved. The E30 has a great overall sound quality. They perform very well in the high end frequencies but fails to reproduce the mids and the low properly. The noise isolation is ok, not perfect.

Sennheiser CX 300 II
The Sennheise CX 300 II is an upgrade over the CX 300 launched in 2006. The CX 300 II stands 7th in our list of 9 best earphones under Rs 3000 in India.
The Sennheiser CX 300 II is a very light weight earphone, only 4 gm, so light-weight that you’ll forget that you’ve plugged them in. The design of this earphone is same as of all the Sennheiser earphones. They are only available in black color. The CX 300 II body is built of good quality durable plastic. The cable is thin and is prone to entanglement. The Cx 300 II offers an asymmetrical cable, which means that the right ear bud dangles off the right, and while this is meant to increase listener comfort it also means that the left ear bud is more likely to fail with repeated strain.
Only three pairs of extra ear pads are included in the package so that you find your perfect fit. Unfortunately, there is no foam earbud included. No inline remote or mic is there on the cable. An earphone in this price range, we expect one to have an inline remote/mic.
The CX 300 II is clearly an improvement over its predecessor CX 300s. The CX 300-II offer a new drive unit and capsule, claiming better bass, clarity and dynamics as the Sennheiser claims. The headphones offer a power bass driven stereo sound, the one which the bass lovers want. The noise isolation provided by these earphones are perfect. Sound reproduction is also very good and the earphones produces a nice well-balanced tone. Perform well in the low and mid frequency regions. Finding a perfect fitting earbud is important to get the most out of the CX 300 II.

Sennheiser CX 3.00
The Sennheiser CX 3.00 is 8th in our list of 9 best earphones under Rs 3000 in India.
The Sennheiser CX 3.00 has a really nice styling. These earphones are shaped inward to point sound inside, while keeping the earphones in line with ear rather than stick out like normal earphone designs. The earpieces have a glossy metallic rectangle on their back with the Sennheisers symbol ‘S’ etched on the metal. The CX 3.0 is available in three different color variant – red, black and white. The black variant looks very premium and sophisticated and is our personal favorite. The cable is also made up of good quality plastic which reduces the chances of it to get tangled. The cable does not have an inline remote or mic which is expected from earphones at this price range. But if you want to use this earphone for listening to music only then they are a great buy.
Four pairs of ear pads are included in the package so that one can find it’s perfect fit. A perfect fit is very important in boosting up your music experience. The CX 3.0 has an L shaped 3.5 mm audio jack which stick parallel with the phone rather than stick out.
Sennheiser pays more attention on the quality of sound produced by the earphone rather on the design of the earphone. The CX 3.00 are a high- quality earphones that produces good quality sound and enhanced bass response. The bass is very pronounced in the CX 3.00, so pronounced that it sometimes over power the other sounds. If you want them to sound more balance or to reduce some of its bass effect, play with your equalizer settings until you get the desired sound quality. Despite of the bass, the earphones do sound clean and crisp. The CX 3.0 offers a perfect noise isolation, damping the ambient noise from the environment.
Good clean and comely design
Crisp and clean sound quality

The Skullcandy Strum stands 9th on our list of 9 best earphones under Rs 3000 in India.
The Skullcandy Strum has a simple and very appealing design. The body built is of plastic and seems durable, feels premium. The Strum is available in three different color variants – black, blue and white. Each earpiece features Skullcandy logo on a reflective metallic colored material. The cable wire is thin and flat which makes it almost tangle free. The earphones feel comfortable on the ear and fits perfectly. An inline remote and a microphone is also provided. The in-line remote is unique, packing a volume slider rather than a volume rocker, making it quicker and easier to mute your music; silence is just a slide away, rather than a few furious taps. It also has a button that will help you start, pause your tracks and also in answering calls.
The strum only comes with two pairs of ear tips: one large and one small (the standard is typically three pairs). It ships with a transparent plastic protective case that seems quite breakable—it might’ve been more useful to provide a cloth pouch like many competing earphone pairs do.
The Strum have an excellent sound quality delivering a crisp, clear and smooth sound. The sound reproduction is very good. The Skullcandy claims that this earphone has the “best fit ever” thanks to their off-axis design, which is designed to better position the buds in your ear’s natural shape. This design is also meant to block out more ambient noise. Overall the audio is impressive, with the bass being punchy and adding depth to tracks but with sharp, rich tones coming from the high end of the audio. The earphone performs well in reproducing the low and mid frequencies. The strum has a near to perfect sound reproduction. A descent amount of bass gets added in every track, the bass lovers will love this earphone.
