This is a product review after using it for straight 2 hours since it just got delivered today.
What an improvement firstly from the boat bassheads 225.
Now, i dont know what the other negative reviews are about since i personally did not find any issue whatsoever with these infact i am delighted by it.
If you are looking a for a good wired earphone and dont want to spend much then this would be the best budget earphone in the market right now.
Firstly speaking of the body it is plastic and not metallic and so it has become lighter than the previous bassheads so much that after using it for 2 straight hours i almost forgot i had them put on. I just felt the wire could have been a bit thicker but dont forget the wire is braided and coated with a rubber like material which should resolve that dilemma.
These come with ear hooks which to my surprise were so comfortable. I usually hate ear hooks cause they hurt after a while but these are just so soft and fit right in.
Moving on the main purpose and the bigger question “BASS”.
I would say it’s perfect.
The sound quality is so very crisp and clear.
BASS is in the right spot and according to me you dont need anymore.
You may hear from other reviewers the BASS is not as good as the previous bassheads please understand it depends on what kind of music you listen and mostly the KBPS which is kilo bits per second. The higher the kbps the better the sound including bass and treble.
The loudness is great almost deafening at the highest volume.
To check noise cancellation (although these earphones dont say noise cancellation) I made a few phone calls and asked if they heard any background noise and they said they could hear little to nothing of whats happening in the background. Now ofcourse this is in a normal environment and may not cancel the traffic sounds or a loud background noise.
The added advantage is the IPX4 sweat and water resistance (you dont find this feature in most wired earphones atleast not in this price range) which is great specially when you work out or when you are jogging or talking a walk. Although since it is wired you will find discomfort and so may want to get wireless bluetooth earphones instead.
So heres how i would rate it on a scale of 1 – 5, 5 being the highest and 1 being the lowest.
Build Quality: 4.5 ( Only cause i think the wire could have been a little thicker)
Call Quality: 5
Bass: 5 (The bass is just perfect if any more bass than this you’d better be putting your ears on a loudspeaker).
Hope this clarifies your doubts about this product.
All in all yet another great product from BOAT and you wont regret the purchase.

I purchased this boat hadset, initially it was working excellent but after 2 months, I don’t know whether it’s a design issues or might be other problem, I contacted service center of boat. They denied to replace my headphone, staff said me that it’s a special cricketer editon so I need to complain via online from the boat website and I registered a complete raised ticket but still now no reply. Poor service. till date no reply from BOAT. kindly think before buying boat products.
As they promised that the quality of wire is too good but it is not.. the wire got damaged with in very short time at the joint as shown in the pic. I cannot replace now not sure how to claim warranty. Can someone (Amazon) help me to get this replaced or repaired?
I will mark it as 5 star if it is replaced.

Loved this earphone its bass is out standing… build quality is great…if you’re getting it for 449… Grab it. It’s better than boat 225 and ant w56.. good for jogging. Design is not so Good but build quality is great. Get black color earphones. And cherry on top is it’s has volume control buttons too… nobody gives volume control buttons in this price.

This is the true earphone to connect you to nirvana not for longer times because it starts pain in ear after a long time continuous use.
Bass- in the price of 450, bass is terrible. You will get powerful bass than you expect.
Sound- if a headphone has poor sound, it is not a headphone. But this one has the sound that will blow your mind totally.
Noice cancellation- in the price range of 400-500 no brand will give you perfect noice cancellation headphones, but in boat bassheads, there is noice cancellation but not so good.
Overall- if you have 500 rs. And you are searching for beast headphone in you budget and if you are reading reviews, and if you are reading this one, i am telling you go for it without hesitation beacuse after a long research on 2 shopping sites i found thi product best in my price range.(i bouggt it for 450).

It is perfectly grip in my ears no fear of falling while running,
Clear and metallic sound
Good bass ,
Look wise it is awesome.
Braided wire means strength
After using it for few days there is change in sound pattern so I returned it. And I’m changing my review from 5 stars to 2

AFTER 2 WEEKS OF DAILY 1-2 HR USE
Sound quality is ear deafening… u can use it with 70-80% more than that u cant ..or u r crazy …
I feel the price is affordable.5/5
The wire are very durable 5/5(Wires with nylon outer cover as of i know )
the buttons 5/5
I use it as a daily driver in gym
it wont come unless u take it out.
Cons: After using it for 60-70 minutes you will feel slight discomfort due to the ear wing and also you feel discomfort whiling using it in while on a pillow in bed.( the ear hooks are detachable) it gives more comfort.
but it is the best wired headset in the range and it is better than their own 225 headphones…
i highly recommend it for people who need A good bass headphones

Excellent bass above 70% of volume. Sometime you will feel vibration of bass in 100% volume.😀
Nice build quality.
Ear tip fits well.
You get this earphone, extra pair of eartip (small and large) and collor clip in the box. Neon green colour looks very nice.
Didn’t find any con after listening to 12-15 different genres songs, call quality is also good.
Go for it in this price range (450-500).
Though I received an open box but its not related to product quality. 1 less star for delivery and packing.
