Boat Rockerz 400 Performance
The Boat Rockerz 400 comes with some annoying notifications that you can't get rid of. You'll hear these verbal cues when you power on/off the headset and when you connect a device with the headset.
The headset also does not comes with ridges which makes quite difficult for us to manage both the sides of the headset at the same level as the onboard slide bar.
The Boat Rockerz 400 delivers good quality audio and this audio is bright at higher levels. However, the headset fails to deliver the instrument separation and the soundstage is also narrow. Moreover, the headsets are very loud which is a nice feature but it leaks the audio and the person sitting next to you can easily hear what are you listening to.
The buttons present on the headset just invert the whole controlling system. The volume control and skip/repeat track buttons are not synced with the headset. You can do this with your device. You need to perform all these tasks with your headset. However, this should be another way around and it creates a lot of problems while using this headset.
The headset comes with an ample amount of bass and the mids are good. But the highs appear to shrill at higher volumes.
Pricing of Boat Rockerz 400
The headset despite its drawbacks seems to be very promising and is also decently priced. The company has priced Boat Rockerz 400 at just Rs. 1,499 which is quite reasonable for this quality of wireless Bluetooth on-ear headphones. So, if you are looking for a mid-range headset, then you can surely go for this headset.
