Design

You can choose the Boat Bassheads as an entry-level option for earphones and good reasons. The earphone is stylish with a ‘Hawk’ inspired earbud design. The cable is 1.2 meters long and is of decent quality. Normally the earphones of this price range sacrifice the quality of the wires. The durability of wire is of concern with this product as it is premium rubber-coated. There are no metal earbuds or magnetic clamp features for this model. Expecting such features for an earphone with a starting price of Rs. 379 is a bit too much.

Design of Boat BassHeads 100

The plastic casing shaped like a Hawk wing adds to the style value more than anything. It does, however, have an inline remote and a microphone. The remote has a single button that can be used to connect voice calls. With a single click, you can play/pause music or answer/end calls and with two clicks you can change to the next music. With three clicks, you can track back to the previous music. Just like the earphone casing, the remote casing is made of plastic as well. The durability of these casings purely depends on how you care for them. They are neither rigid nor weak.
