Personal Experiences :

I bought this wireless earphone for 1599 Rs from Amazon and personally think that this is not an ideal earphone to use. And here’s why.

The main reason I decided to buy this earphone was that I did not want the wire connected to my phone while I was taking a phone call or listening to music or watching videos etc.

The biggest let down for me was that for some bizarre reason I cannot connect the wireless headset to the phone audio which means that in this time of work from home where i have to take a ton of calls its not possible for me!!!

To receive a call I would have to put the phone to my ear and answer it ……….which totally defeats the purpose of having a ear phone in the first place and that too a wireless one which should enable me to keep my phone anywhere and take calls directly without the hassle of wire connected to the phone.

At first I thought that there is some problem with my One plus X so then I tried them with the redmi note 8 pro and still the problem persisted.

The second thing that bugged me about this wireless boat earphone is that there are moments in between when you can clearly feel the lag of the audio being delivered to your ears and also there are time when you can hear the echo of the sound that you are listening to. It can be from a video , or just a mp3.

There is also a considerable blank period when the earphones turn on and they have to send tha audio to your ears.

Rest the sound is ok for an earphone of this price. It's nothing great or exceptional about this wireless boat rockerz 255 pro.

Also the bluetooth range is not that good its less than 8 meters.

Conclusion :

Personally I think that you should go for something else as this current wireless earphone from boat is not all that great ...I mean the problem stated above might have to do something with particularly with my unit I don't know about that yet but still there are other great wireless earphones that you can find in the same price range.

Would love to hear your opinions as well…...
