Call or Mic Quality-
The calling or the mic quality is pretty decent. For me it works really may because I didn’t use that much for calling. In the inside where there’s no any noise the call quality is quite good you or the other person can hear the voices clearly.
While I’m at work or in any other noisy environment, sometimes I used to attend call and the other person used to complain because of the background noise. That’s make me a bit sad, but for the price we can’t complain. Even the high range earphones also this type of problems as well.
The Bluetooth Technology Connectivity is powered by Qualcomm CSR8635 Chipset with a Bluetooth version of 4.1. As on paper it has a range for about 10 meters. The connection between the device is average meaning even if there’s an obstacle it smoothly stays connected with the source devices. While I’m testing the connectivity strength in an open area I can take about 40 steps away from the smartphone and after that the connection gets interrupted.
The quick charge features 10 mins can give a battery life for about 45 mins and this feature is quite works well. But when I first tested this I can use for about 1 hours. This Sports Wireless Earphone with Immersive Stereo Sound and Hands Free Mic is equipped with 110 mAH battery.
It can surely allow you to spend your time with these earphones a quarter of the day. With that being said on papers it says about 6 hours with a single charge but it can easily last for about 8 hours. But the charging time of Boat Rockerz 255 is 3 Hours if the battery is totally drained.

Here is how I feel while using, In terms of Comfort it does have that comfort but not the top notch one, it’s a medium one. Even if I wore for a long time I don’t have that irritation in ears. But for the first time when I wear after 30 minutes I get irritation or pain in my ears. However when the time goes on I didn’t have that type of feeling any more.
In terms of fitting if choosing the right ear piece it can properly stay on ear. It provide a snug fit and even it can be use while running, jogging as well as in gyms.

Boat Rockerz 255 vs 255F-
One of my friend wanted to buy budget bluetooth headphones which comes under 2000 Rs. And ask me to do research on that. While i was doing research I come across this one, with so many positive and negative reviews. I was little interested on it because of its reviews, but when i go deep in the research i found out this keyword boAt Rockerz 255 vs 255F, I was getting a lot of confusion.
After going throughout all the reviews, details and specifications from Amazon. And then i go to Flipkart to checkout wether this is available or not. I do found on, like i did on Amazon, i checkout some reviews, and then i go to product details and specifications. And later i found out that this boAt Rockerz 255 and 255F are same and there is no difference in it.
I know some of you may got confuse and some of you may not. But I want you to know this two name 255 and 255F are same. The only different between this two is the name. I don’t know why the sellers sell this product in two different name even thought the product details are same. You can get the 255F on Flipkart and 255 on Amazon.

However, if you want to activate the voice assistant you can press the central button key till the it beep.
Coming to the Latency, I think for gaming this won’t be a good choice, the reason is that it has a high latency and there’s a lot of lagging in the sound. On the other hand, for online videos like Netflix, YouTube etc. sometimes there’s a bit of miss synchronized with the voice. However this happen only sometimes may because of the internet connection.
The most important part the quality of sound, well it’s a bass boosted earphones, Because of that with difference preferences some might like or some may not.
The highs of the sound are a bit over sharp when playing music at high volume and it does have a distortion as well. But by bringing down the volume to 60 to 70 percent there is no distorted on the sound. It sounds well on soft music especially on the Indian Music, however with Metal Music it really irritates the ears also there’s over sharpness.
The vocals or the mids are also not that much clear when playing music that has a lot of instruments on tha background. But with a music that has a less background music the clarity is ok. This earphone works well with only music that has less instrumental background as well as in Classical category.
In terms of lows or bass it really have thump or boosted. This is a good sign for those who likes to listen music with deep and bass boosted music caring much clarity of the music. In short it works well with Hip Hop or music that has a lot of bass.
Should You Buy The Boat Rockerz 255-
So, if you are looking a budget earphone and light in weight with an excellent build quality and design. This might be the one, but, if you are not a bass lover this headphone might not suitable. As per the price this no doubt about its performance. You should go for it.
In fact if you are looking for an earphones that has a balance sound quality you can skip this boat Rockerz 255. The reason is that like I mention before it is mostly focus on the bass heavy music.
