boAt Rockerz 255 Sports Bluetooth Wireless Earphone : Review

Writing a technology review after a really long time. I have been meaning to write one for my Mi 55" Android TV as well, but just haven't gotten to it. Anyways, I was searching for a good wireless (read: bluetooth) earphones since a couple of months and after a lot of searching around finally bought the
boAt Rockerz 255 Sports Bluetooth Wireless Earphone during one of Amazon's sales.

Why I needed Bluetooth headphones?
I use the Apple iPhone X which has the same jack for earphone and charging, so that was a big inconvenience, plus if you are going to walk or jog with music, wired is a no-no and lastly - AirPods kharidne ki aukaat nahi hai. I would surely lose them within a week. 

So I knew specifically what I was looking for -
  • In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones (Over the ear headphones are too bulky and not very portable).
  • Under 2.5-3K rupees (I am not very good at maintaining earphones and end up damaging them pretty easily).
  • A bluetooth earphone with good battery life and good bass.
After reading a lot of buyer reviews across Amazon, Flipkart etc I shortlisted a few from JBL, Skullcandy and boAt. The boAt Rockerz 255 is priced at MRP of Rs.2990/- so I was not too sure to invest that in a brand I hadn't ever used before. But on one of Amazon's sale days, it was available for Rs.1090/- and I did not hesitate and purchased it.


It arrived quick, was charged already and it is a good purchase! Here's what I liked -

1. Average use of the earphones makes battery last for 1-2 days. Which is good. (If you're listening to songs for say 30 mins each day and just taking calls otherwise).
2.  You can charge it via power socket or PC using the USB cable provided.
3. It stays fit in the ears and does not come off, though I have not yet tried running or jogging with it, but walking is comfortable.
4. Nice colour options - neon green, red or black. I bought the neon green one.
5.  Sound quality is good - I won't say you'll get Bose-like quality. But for the amount, the music quality is very decent. Bass too.
6. There is a nice voice that greets you when you switch on or switch off the earphones, unlike the standard voice you'll here in every other chinese bluetooth earphones or speakers.
7. Magnetic clipping of earphones when not in use.

What could be better -
  • Sometimes the earphones give beep sounds, and I don't know what they're for, but it can be irritating.
  • Battery percentage is not known, if phone could show the earphone battery percentage somehow, it would be useful.
  • When battery gets low it starts beeping frequently, that is annoying as well.

Overall, at the price I paid it's a very good purchase, I would buy it again at the same price. But maybe not at the MRP.
