Packaging and unboxing experience
Boat Bassheads 170 came in a printed simple box which contains 4 pairs of earbuds, a tie clip, earphones and a boat card. Choosing comfortable eartips is important and can  improve your music listening experience dramatically. But in the boat bassheads 170 , no matter what eartips you try the sound quality is high pitch and shrill.


Build & Design
          The build quality for the selling price of Rs425 earphone, it is good but for the MRP of Rs 899 its not as good as other competitors . It has braided cables so they can withstand more wear and tear as compared to rubber ones. But my concern is that they look weak at the joints and I fear, if pulled accidentally they might break at the joints.

Boat bassheads 170 are made out of metal and that is why they feel heavy and I will not recommend these for gym or jogging usage. The microphone works fine but there aren’t any physical buttons there. There is no info whether the  3.5mm headphone jack is gold plated or not. Overall the build quality is above average.

Sound Quality
         As the name suggests Boat bassheads 170 but the bass isn’t powerful enough to please any basshead. Bass is decent, not so heavy not so light. The real problem with these earphones is that the Mids are on the higher side and you will notice the shrillness in the voice. Though this can be solved by using an equalizer and adjusting to your liking. Lows are good and highs are on the higher side for me. Boat surely could have used better drivers or better quality chips/circuits. I think the sound quality is below average or just average.

Update –  After 4 moths of usage , one of the earpiece stopped working. I do not recommend this product. Don’t waste your hard earned money on boat bassheads 170 , instead by Jabees or something else

Final verdict
          For the given price you can’t complain more but I feel that the House of marley little birds and soundmagic es18s are way better in the sound quality than boat bassheads 170. I would recommend them instead of buying these earphones.
