In the segment up to 10 thousand rubles, it’s not so easy to find balanced wireless headphones: something will still make you look in the direction of a more expensive model.
There are exceptions. And today we have collected as many as 7 options in the range from 5 to 10 thousand. Each model has its own advantages that justify the price.
They are highly appreciated both in Russia and abroad. We disassemble.
1. JBL Tune 225 Wireless Headphones
Why are good: light and easy to use
Always had a positive attitude to the headphones and speakers of this company. In their price segment, they fully justify the price-quality ratio.
This model was no exception. Foreign publications unanimously speak about the high ease of use due to the tactilely pleasant plastic from which both the headphones themselves and the charging case are made. Moreover, they are well suited for sports, as they do not fall out of the ears at all.
And while they block out little ambient noise, it’s an advantage if you’re out and about and want to stay aware of what’s going on around you.
At the same time, the battery lasts for 25 hours of playback.
How much are: 5590 rubles
2. Beats Flex
Why are good: the main features of AirPods with a long battery life (review)
We have already praised these headphones more than once. This is far from the case that people usually talk about: expensive, only basses and nothing more. No, quite the opposite.
For relatively modest money, you get at least an honest 12 hours of battery life. That is, you can safely walk with them for 2 days in a row and listen to music all day long.
There is a lot of bass here, and this is generally pleasant, not annoying. It is generally difficult to lose, they hang around the neck and are connected by magnets to each other. Lightweight with a good fit.
Plus, the W1 chip is built in, which allows you to seamlessly switch between Apple devices without having to open the Bluetooth menu. And what else do you need for headphones for 6 thousand?
How much are: 5990 rubles
3. Jabra Elite 2
Why are good: water protection with balanced sound
These earbuds are IP55 water resistant.
Inside, 6mm drivers are installed, which provide quite rich bass and good detail. You can distinguish between percussion and acoustic instruments. Good sound is confirmed by support for the aptX codec.
Two microphones provide good voice transmission during calls. From personal experience I can say that the interlocutor always heard me normally during a telephone conversation.
The autonomy of the headphones is up to 7 hours (up to 21 hours with a case). In fact, the headphones will last for 3 days of listening to music on the way from home to work and back (if you count without a case). A very good result.
For a stable connection, there is Bluetooth 5.2, fast charging is supported – 10 minutes at the outlet gives about an hour of playback.
How much are: 6890 rubles
4. Yamaha TW-E3B
Why are good: great sound with physical controls
Let’s agree that the headphones are really more convenient to control using physical buttons. Even Apple realized this when they released the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, abandoning the sensors.
So Yamaha decided the same way, at the same time screwing on the high-quality branded sound. Internally, 6mm drivers provide a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz. The headphones are compatible with Bluetooth 5.0 and support AAC, AptX and SBC codecs.
Add here in the appendage also IPX5 protection, which is great for sports, and we get almost perfect headphones in its price category.
What I especially like is the charge indicator on the case. That is, you have not yet managed to get the headphones, but you already know approximately how long they will last. In general, autonomy is still high: 6 hours for each earbud and 24 hours with a case.
Well, the last bonus is 4 interchangeable ear pads included. All different sizes to better fit your ears.
How much are: 6990 rubles
5. Judged by T2
What are good: active noise cancellation and 35 hours of battery life
I already predict the question “Who is this at all?”. I hasten to answer: Sudio is a Swedish brand that designs, designs and manufactures acoustics. It has been operating since 2012 and has already managed to establish itself.
You know, it’s like IKEA in the world of headphones: with Swedish quality standards for relatively little money. The design is reliable, nothing plays or wheezes, they lie tightly in the case and do not fall out when shaking. At the same time, there is a loop for more convenient carrying (it is a pity that it is not removed).
An important feature of the headphones is the active noise cancellation mode. Moreover, it is also accompanied by the regime Transparency. That is, in the subway you do not hear anything, but on the street, on the contrary, you can hear everything, just switch the mode.
The sound can be customized in a proprietary application. There is a good equalizer.
And finally, I note a long time of work. With a case, they will last 35 hours, and without it – 7.5 hours (up to 2 hours of listening in 10 minutes of charging).
How much are: 7990 rubles
6. Sony WF-C500
What are good: good sound, great fit and waterproof
Sony has long been a guarantor of good sound in wireless headphones. More than once I was convinced of this personally, both with “plugs” and with full-size versions.
And here is no exception. Even if the original track is compressed, the accessory uses DSEE technology, which “pulls” it to a normal level.
The sound can be customized in a proprietary application: there is an equalizer and many preset profiles for each type of composition. Plus, 360 Reality Audio technology is used, which creates a three-dimensional scene.
They sit tightly in the ears, do not fall out, are light, suitable for sports. There is IPX4 protection against sweat and splashes.
How much are: 9490 rubles
7. Jabra Elite 4 Active
What are good: designed for athletes, high run time
High-quality headphones with signature sound in 6mm drivers, reliable Bluetooth 5.2 and active noise cancellation for a relatively small price. This sports accessory is IP57 waterproof.
They work up to 28 hours with a case and up to 7 without it. Plus there is fast charging: after 10 minutes you can enjoy music.
ANC copes with the active flow of sounds on the street, passing only in old subway cars.
How much are: 9990 rubles
