Design & Build quality
On the design front, I am very impressed with Boat BassHeads 225. The main section of these headphones is built with good quality Polished Metal. It gives Boat BassHeads 225 a premium feel & attractive appearance. The cable of these headphones is really strong with flat tangle free design. Despite the metal construction, Boat BassHeads 225 is very lightweight. It also comes with L-Shaped 3.5 mm audio jack & Microphone which is again made up of metal. Overall the design and built quality are excellent for the price what we pay.
Cable & Microphone
The cable of these headphones is 1.2m long, so you can easily hold your phone in a lower pocket. A design of this cable is flat and tangle free with a rubberized coating. I personally prefer flat cables because it looks good and durable. The microphone of these headphones is again really good. It easily records voice with clarity and less disturbance or background noise. During calls, your friend can clearly hear your voice with no background disturbance. There is one button on the microphone, which single click you can pick up or reject calls. You can also change your music track with a double-click.
The Audio quality of these headphones is really good compares to others in this price range. Boat promised what they say out of box ‘ Extraaaa Bass’, the Bass of these headphones are really high compared to others. An overall the sound output of this headphones are very high. During my test, I found these headphones have good audio quality compare to others at this price. If you like EDM and pop songs, then you love these Boat headphones. But I suggest reducing a volume of your phone while listening Sufi and romantic songs because by default these headphones have higher volume, so you didn’t feel clear audio. The once again Bass effect is really good with treble and vocal. You can easily distinguish between different instruments & sounds which are good for extra bassy headphones.
When coming to comfort, first I am not very impressed with these headphones, but after a select right pair of ear tips, I feel better. If you use this boat headphones for a long time, then you feel a little bit awkward because of big capsule design. On the Noise Isolation, Boat BassHeads 225 is very good. Make sure that you have the right pair of ear tips on for better noise isolation & comfort. I use these headphones while bike driving and I weren’t able to hear outside noise, that’s really amazing. If you get popping issue which these earphones, then please use Ear Hooks provided with earphones.
After review and comparison with other headphones, I say the Boat boAt BassHeads 225 is the best headphones under 500 Rs with a microphone. It has a solid build quality, good performance, low price, and more important extreme Bass. I highly recommend these headphones for Bass lovers & budget-conscious people who are looking for high quality & durable earphones at a reasonable price.
