As we are at the end of the year, I’m sure most of you will be looking forward to grab some really cool gadgets, albeit with a tight budget. So I’ve curated a list of the best 10 gadgets that you can get for about 5000 bucks! There is a huge variety of tech that you can get under this price range, I’ve selected what I think are the best. Comment down below if you know cool stuff that could’ve made it to the list.
(1)Amazon Kindle (Rs. 4,999)
For all of those who love reading, you can never go wrong with the Amazon Kindle that came out in 2014. Although the battery lasts a little shorter than the Paperwhite or the Voyage, it sports 4 gigabytes of space and also the processor has become a little zippier too. It connects to Wi-Fi and gives you access to the Amazon’s e-book ecosystem. It’s a strong package, and highly recommended if you’re on a tight budget but want that e-book reader.
You can grab one here.
(2) Chromecast (Rs. 2,399)
All of us already know about this pen-drive sized multimedia streaming device. It is dirt cheap and streams almost all multimedia to your TV. It is as small as a pen-drive, and you can carry it around in your pocket and also extremely easy to set up. And yes, we’re expecting the 2015 Chromecast 2, to release in India soon. The Chromecast 2 will come with minor changes, and will have lesser lag than the previous generation. It will be priced around the same, but looks much better than its predecessor. You can grab the 1st generation Chromecast on Flipkart right away. But Chromecast 2 is definitely worth the wait, if you are particular about how it looks. Essentially, there is only a minor difference.

(3) Audio Technica ATH-S500 NV (Rs. 4,199)
The ATH-S500 is an affordable introduction from Audio Technica. The entire body is made of plastic, and there is no foam on the headrest. It is not the prettiest of the headphones you can get for that price, but it gives you the best in class sound quality. It does block external noise to a decent extent, and is also very loud. The bass is punchy, yet the soft notes are crystal clear. If you love bass, and are not up for sacrificing clarity, the ATH-S500 are for you!

(4) Audio Technica ATH-CKX9 BK (Rs. 4,200)
For those of you who prefer earphones over headphones, Audio Technica has got you covered for that too.
They’re very large and not pretty either. However, the CKX9 give you some excellent sound quality. The rubber ear grips sit in your ear very comfortably, and don’t fall out very easily. This makes them perfect for running. They offer really good bass. The CKX9 definitely steals the limelight amongst the mid-range earphones.
