Audio Quality and Microphone of Boat Rockerz 295v2

The boAt Rockerz 295 V2 is packed with 10 mm dynamic drivers. Boat 295 comes with special features EQ modes. These are balanced mode and bass mode. In normal mode, the audio output isn’t as excellent as the other mode. The volume is also low. In bass boosted mode, the bass is punchy and deep as and when required. It isn’t overpowering but sufficient for most users. The vocals and trebles are well separated, but at higher volumes, the high-frequency notes are distorted to some extent.  The microphone is present beside the control panel and is said to be based on Qualcomm technology. The call quality is average. You can hear the person on the other end and vice versa, but there is a substantial background noise even indoors.

Boat 295v2 Latency Performance

The synchronization between audio and video is remarkable, with a delay of as low as 100 milliseconds. This much delay is expected in wireless Bluetooth earbuds, and even dedicated gamers can manage with this much latency.

Both the earbuds and the neckband has a matte finish which adds an extremely premium touch. The control area is marked by a shiny finish and the logo of the boAt.

The neckband is made of flexible and silicone material, and you can fold it in any way you like without damaging the interiors. It accounts for the secure storage of the neckbands. The wire is cylindrical and not flat type. It’s neither too thin nor too thick. The boAt 295v2 neckband was extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear.
