Plastic casings and standard rubber-coated wires make up the Boat Bassheads 100, which is essential, conventional, and functional. On the Y-splitter, though, you do receive a single-button control and a microphone for voice communications.
Despite being made of plastic, the casings are attractive due to their distinctive appearance. The pointed ends, on the other hand, made handling the earphones a little complicated. The Boat Bassheads 100 has an excellent build quality for a cheap headset, and it appears to last a long time. When we used the earbuds, however, we heard a lot of wire noise.
A standard 3.5mm plug is used for the connection. The Boat Bassheads 100 has 10mm, dynamic drivers, with a frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz, an impedance of 16 Ohms, and a sensitivity rating of 92dB. Three sets of silicone ear tips are included in the sales package, and the earbuds were comfy to wear.
Don't let the Boat Bassheads 100's low price fool you into thinking you're getting a sub-par product; these earbuds perform a respectable job. The sound is loud, and the sonic characteristic is appropriate for most popular music genres, with somewhat increased low- and high-frequency responses. The sound was flat and uninspiring at low volume, but turning it up to approximately 80% enhances the sound quality.
For a set of headphones that costs only Rs. 399, the sound is clear, with good stereo separation and a large soundstage. The thrilling rhythms were prominent and prevalent in Basement Jaxx's Mermaid of Salinas without drowning out the pristine quality of the remainder of the music. While the earphones do muffle the mid-range a little, it has no discernible effect on the listening experience.
We were hoping for a bit more punch in the sound than the Boat Bassheads 100 could deliver on to Croatia Squad's Ven Pa Ca. These earbuds don't have a lot of bass tightness. That's not to suggest there's no bass; it's just a little more laid back and subtle than thrilling and forceful. Bassheads would be better served by the Ant Audio Wave 702 or the more costly Boat Bassheads 225, in our opinion.
The slightly bland mid-range did impair sound quality when watching a video with the conversation, but this set of earbuds is mainly aimed toward music. We used these earbuds to listen to a couple of TV episodes and movie snippets on a smartphone.
And although the experience was decent and functional, it wasn't nearly as delightful as we'd hoped. We tested the Boat Bassheads 100 as a hands-free headset for voice calls, and the results were satisfactory. The microphone was a little weak for us, but this was mainly a problem in noisy situations.
The Boat Bassheads 100 earbuds are a simple set of earphones that perform what they claim to do: play music straight into your ears. It does an excellent job of providing a clear sound that fits in with the most famous music genres. This is the cheapest set of decent-sounding earbuds available, and nothing else comes close at this price, in our view.
