While shopping for earphones, Indian customers always face the “US-Price” dilemma (I have created this term myself). Most earphone brands are EU and US-based Company, and they make their products focusing on the paying capacity of Europeans and US citizens.
Competition in the earphone market In India has been rising. It is yet to reach a level the same as the smartphone market, however. Still, brands like Bose, Sony, and Beats do not see India and other developing countries as the enormous potential market for premium earphones. These factors also affect the release time of their products.

Even though most premium earphone brands still consider UK and US as the most profitable markets, but some manufacturers changing strategy and has started believing the potential of Indian electronic market. These brands are few but capable enough to make a serious difference. One such brand is Audio Technica. This company has been widely appreciated for the excellent quality products, which are budget friendly in the Indian market and offers excellent value.

► Audio Technica ATH-CLR100 Earphone without a MIC
One of the bestselling earphones of Audio Technica is ATH-CLR100. It became available in India a few years back, and since then it has attracted a good number of sales. You can purchase this earphone set as low as 650 rupees. Let me tell you upfront that if you are looking for the best earphones under 700 with mic, check other suggested earphone as this Audio Technica earphones come without a microphone for hands-free calling.
Superior Audio Quality: No other best-selling top earphones of the budget segment can match the audio quality of this Audio Technica earphone. The end user would get an immersive experience while listening to music on it.
At medium volumes, the audio of this Audio Technica remains well balanced. While listening to a rock track, it almost felt like I was using a premium Bose earphone. It generates accurate Mids, punchy bass, and sharp treble.
However, the earphone starts suffering when you increase the volume up to 100 percent. The treble increases while bass becomes silent. Still, I believe this earphone is a perfect device for casual listener considering the price point. I enjoyed my time with it. You cannot get more than this from a budget device.
Highly Comfortable: Audio Technica ships three pairs of ear tips of different sizes with this earphone. You can use the pair that fits your ears. The manufacturer has made these ear tips with ultra-soft materials for better comfort.
I used this earphone for hours without experiencing any pain or discomfort. A disc-like cord winder that comes in the box helps a lot in the handling of the product and stops its cord from tangling.
Average Build Quality: Although this device is super-comfortable, I am not happy with Audio Technica’s choice of materials while making it. The cord feels cheap and can easily break. The housing of the 3.5-mm audio jack is not durable, though only time would tell how long it lasts.
- Generates immersive audio
- Super comfortable ear tips
- No microphone
- No inline remote
- Bass is not that great
Verdict: The Audio Technica ATH-CLR100 is not a heavy bass earphone. Still, it is an excellent choice if you are looking for a pair of excellent earphones below 700 Rupees. It generates balanced audio, though adds some level of spiciness to the tracks. Moreover, it lacks inline remote and microphone is a big disappointment. Many people would not purchase this great earphone due to its inability to make calls.
