  1. If you take my opinion i would say Sony Mdr Xb450 is the best in the market under 2000 rupees .Not only that its used in many advertisements too for example Vodafone ad of the brother and his younger sibling . You can read more about this awsome headphones over here

  2. i wonder why sennheiser cx 180 is left out. You can get this for a discount at around 800rs. dont hesitate to buy it. I have heard it to believe it. very very goood noise cancellation. bass and clarity is superb. dont think there is any other headphone as good as this at this budget. even for a higher budget upto 1200rs. blindly buy it. just buy it. heard abt it from a shopping site. dont repent the decision even 1%
