boAt lifestyle, an audio company which specializes in offering premium quality products at an affordable price has launched its new wireless earphones in India. The boAt Rockerz 275 is a pair of wireless earphones styled as a neckband. boAt is upping the ante with its Rockerz 275 and at a price of ₹3,990, it looks like a good investment for any consumer looking to purchase a wireless earphone.
The Rockerz 275 features a flexible neckband which is also IPX5 rated making it resistant to sweat and usual splashes of water. So, users who are on the lookout for earphones that they can use during their workout session, the boAt Rockerz 275 should get the job done. The in-ear design of the wireless earphones should make for a really nice isolation of outside noise while listening through them, but that is something we can only say after having played around with it. The earphones also have a magnetic lock on both the units that prevent them from accidentally falling while on the user's neck.
boAt Rockerz 275 is fitted with 12mm dynamic drivers that work in tandem with Qualcomm CSR8635 audio chipset and Bluetooth v4.1. This pairing results in balanced audio profiles while keeping the bass high. The wireless earphones support HD sound working between a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz. The CSR8635 chipset also allows the earphones to support dual pairing which essentially means that it can connect to two Bluetooth sources.
The biggest pet peeve of consumers when it comes to wireless earphones is the battery capacity. According to boAt, the Rockerz 275 has a 150mAh battery which can deliver up to 10 hours of playback. Furthermore, the company says the neckband can get a full recharge in 2 hours while 20 minutes of charge will provide users with a playback time ranging from 1-2 hours.
boAt Rockerz 275 also alerts users in the event of an incoming call while playing music courtesy of the inbuilt vibration motor housed in the edges of neckband.
The boAt Rockerz 275 neckband style wireless earphones are priced at Rs 3,990 but are available at an introductory price of Rs 2499 on Amazon India. boAt is offering the Rockerz 275 with 1 year of warranty. At this price, the boAt Rockerz 275 undercuts the likes of Samsung U Flex which are also good options but are priced more than the boAt Rockerz 275. Sony WI-C400 is another wireless Bluetooth earphone which is a great option for consumers in the market looking to purchase one.
