Top 10 Budget Earphones|Pakistan 2020

How did we review the earphones?

Some of you might be wondering what method did we use to review a bunch of earphones. To be honest, we do not own most of the earphones on this list.

But that did not stop us from reviewing them. We bought some of the earphones (Mi basic, A4tech MK 690, Sony MDR-EX155, and KZ ES4). Borrowed the rest from friends, family, and shopkeepers.

We wrote our personal reviews of all the budget earphones in Pakistan. After that, we compared them with the reviews available on Amazon, Aliexpress, Bangood, Best buy. Other than that, we read reviews on other blogs to decide the final score for each earphone.

The durability of each earphone is based entirely on the reviews from the popular sites. Because we can not test that in a short amount of time and with just one pair. We took an average of all the durability reviews on major selling websites like Amazon, Aliexpress, etc.

What do these terms mean?

Sound Quality:

The sound quality contains three different frequency components;

  • High frequencies
  • Mid frequencies,
  • Low frequencies

If an earphone has a good sound quality it would produce all of these different frequencies without suppressing any frequencies.

That being said, you do not need to worry a lot about frequencies as we are reviewing budget earphones in Pakistan. Still, average consumers can get a bit nerdy too sometimes.

To keep this simple I would give you examples of sounds for all these frequencies.

High: The violin, flute, guitar, plates, and some female vocals are some examples of the high-frequency sounds.

Mid: A few examples of these sounds are violins, vocals, cello, oboe.

Low: Any type of bass in the music.

Build Quality:

This tells us if the earphone has been built well. Would it endure stretches, falling, and rough use. For instance, earphone manufacturers use braided cables nowadays to make the build quality better.

Basically, to analyze the earphone physically and deciding whether the good quality and sturdy materials have been used to build the earphone.


This is simple. Durability is how long an earphone will last.

We have given a durability score to each earphone by searching on all the famous websites. The websites include Amazon, Aliexpress, Alibaba, Banggood, Best Buy, and even souq.

Further, we read reviews from other blogs and youtube videos.

Value for Money:

The “value for the money” term just represents if the product is worth equal to or more than its price.

To be honest, value for money should always be a higher number. Especially when you are on a budget for earphones and in Pakistan (Where everything is expensive due to rupee depreciation against the dollar).

This value for money is again the average of our score and the averages of scores available on the internet by customers all over the world.

Overall Score:

The overall score is just the average of the scores of Sound quality, Build quality, durability, value for money. Just add all four scores and divide them by 40.

1. A4Tech MK-690

Price: 800 PKR

A4Tech is one of the popular budget brands for earphones in Pakistan. Since this earphone is an entry-level budget earphone from A4Tech. Still, It has a crystal clear sound quality for its price. It comes with an extendable wire which is really handy. But due to its poor build quality and durability, it does not last longer than 4-6 months sadly.

Sound Signature: Sound is for treble heads. More focussed on the highs and mids. Still, If you are a bass-head, this might work for you.

This is probably the most balanced pair of earphones on our list. It has got everything from good sound quality to a microphone included at last.

One tiny problem is that some pairs do not last very long. But some pairs last even more than 18 months. Therefore, make sure to get a warranty of 18 months if possible. But it will cost a little more than the 2000 rs

Still, to get a budget earphones from JBL in Pakistan is pretty impressive. If you know a little about JBL, then you know what I am talking about.

7. Sony MDR-EX155

Price: 2400 PKR

If you have been looking for a sony budget earphones in Pakistan. These are the earphones you should buy.

This is one of my favorite in-ear headphones from Sony. But do not just take Sony’s name.

For instance, this earphone has a specific sound signature which is not appealing for everyone.

The durability of this earphone is phenomenal. As it will last for years if used properly. It can not be said about most of the earphones on this list.

This version is without a microphone. The same earphone comes with a microphone and has the model Sony MDR-EX155AP.

Sound Signature: These earphones focus on the vocals and high frequency and less on the bass. So if you are a bass head, these are not for you. But still, the sound is crystal clear.

8. KZ ES4

Price: 2000-2700 PKR

KZ ES4 is very popular among audiophiles but not so much among the normal audience.

These weird-looking budget earphones produce really good sound quality. They have almost no competition at their price point.

Since these are budget earphones that outperform most of the budget earphones in Pakistan. It would not be wise to ignore them.

The best part is; if you break the cables of these earphones. You can buy new cables. If you want to make them wireless, just buy the Bluetooth module/wire for these earphones.

Sound Signature: KZ ES4 has a really balanced sound with a little bit more emphasis on the mids. As a result, you can expect them to produce great sound for any type of media.

Note: If you buy it and the sound does not seem great. Just get foam tips for these and everything will be good.

9. Sennheiser CX-213

Price: 2700 PKR

Sennheiser CX -213 is an entry-level and budget earphone. But it is plenty good to justify its price.

Sennheiser needs no introduction when it comes to audio products. Besides, it is rare that a company of Sennheiser size produces budget earphones in Germany which is also a budget product in Pakistan.

Sound Signature: Sound is a bit towards the bassy side. It feels overall balanced. It is not hurting mids and highs.

Sound Quality: 8.5/10
Durability: 7.5/10

Where to Buy:

10. Samsung AKG In-Ear S10 Model

Price: 3000 PKR

Samsung made a great hype of these earphones when they first released it with galaxy S8. So, we had to check if the hype is real. We tried the one that came with S8, Note 8 and S10.

These are not AKG earphones. They are owned by Samsung and then the earphone sound tuning is done by AKG.

S10 model is a little bit for bass lovers and is easily available.

To be honest, from all the budget earphones in Pakistan. These earphones made the weakest case and therefore do not have a lot of value for money.
