boAT (the home-grown headphone brand) is launching a new pair of Bluetooth wireless headphones in India on 12th February 2021.
The new Wireless Earbuds are called boAT Rockerz 255 Pro+. Pretty long name, probably inspired by the new iPhones.
Nevertheless, the new boAT Rockerz 255 Pro+ comes with a 40 Hours playback, that’s a lot more than rivals offer in the price range.
Key Features and Details
The headphones are not the true wireless type but come with a connecting cable between the two earbuds. These types of buds offer impressive battery life as they can house the battery separately unlike TWS headphones that have the battery inside the earbud.
The headphones come with a USB Type C charging port and the company is claiming you can charge it from 0-100% in just 60 minutes. Also, a 10 minutes charge can get you a battery backup of up to 10 hours.
There is a multi-functional remote to play/pause and increase or decrease the volume. The earbuds come with metallic earbuds and look robust.
Furthermore, we have got a Bluetooth Version 5.0 support and also have the Qualcomm aptX support; that is rare to find in most earphones in this price range.
The Qualcomm aptX offers excellent audio quality and if your phone has support for the aptX then it can enhance the audio output.
Further, these offer Extra-bass that is signature to most boAt audio gear. Boat is also claiming that these headphones come with CVC noise cancelation technology that offers better background noise isolation. These are not active noise cancelation headphones but have passive noise isolation.
Furthermore, the headphones will come with the IPX7 water resistance and you need not worry about water damage to them.
There is a secure fit and these have a silicone flap that fits in the ear to hold them in place. These are also ideal for workouts and gym and offer a comfortable fit and are even sweat-resistant.
