Boat Rockerz 255 Review
These are neckband style headphones comes with IPX5 water and sweat resistance, that means you can use them during workouts and morning runs.
Design and Comfort
My headphones are neon green; two green color lines are spread throughout the headphones. The neckband is very flexible, on the right side we have three buttons middle one is multi-function button (Power ON/OFF and Call Lift and reject) and the other two are for controlling the volume also we can skip tracks (Long press + will play next track and long-press of – will play previous track). A Multifunction button can also be used to activate the voice assistant in the connected device. Buttons are very responsive. There is also a Micro USB port on the right side to charge the device.
Earbuds are made of hard plastic and slightly angled inside to fit into ears securely; they won’t fell off from the ears. There is also a magnetic lock once they locked, sometimes they turn off sometimes they won’t.
These weigh just 28g, once we wear these headsets we barely notice them. These are the best suits for morning runs and some gym activities. Overall build quality justifies the price tag, and it should have been better in some areas like, for instance, the plastic finishing at the end of the neckband feels cheap.
Sound and Call Quality
The main selling point of any headphones will be their sound quality. I must say that they will do just fine for the price tag. These headsets are powered by 10mm dynamic drivers which do a decent job. Boat Rockerz 255 comes with super extra bass, when we play bass-heavy songs it delivers a good amount of bass, but at higher volumes, clarity of vocals and instruments will be missed.
When we play music between 70%-80% volume levels, they perform well, anything more than that will be overkill for the headset. Headsets will respond very well to equalizers, find the right setting that suits you. Call quality also very good haven’t faced any call drops.
CVC Noise Cancelation
It is not that great, but it can reduce some amount of noise. The design of earbuds also helps to reduce the noise. If you find the right size of ear tips for your ears, it will help to reduce outside noise.
It packs 110 mAh battery boat rockerz 255 charging time is 1.5 hours which is very long. It does come with fast charging 10 Min of charging will give approximately 45 Minutes of playback. Claimed battery back up is 6 hours, in my tests at 80% volume it gave around 5 to 6 hours. Surprisingly sum times we get 8 hours battery backup depending on the usage.
Here comes our final thoughts on Boat Rockerz 255 Sports Bluetooth Wireless Earphones, these are good headphones for the price, and it does the job for you. Boat has to release an updated version with Bluetooth 5.0 and some improvements in sound quality. These may not satisfy pure music lovers because they lack clarity in some areas. If you what a wireless headset for listing music during workouts and taking calls, these are a perfect choice. Sometimes they are available for under 1k in amazon, if you find that offer it will be a sweet deal.
