Boat Bassheads 900 is one of the most popular budget headphones at Amazon currently. Is it worth buying under 1000? What is it that makes the Boat BassHeads 900 so popular? We find out in our review.
There are many cheap headphones available in the market but very few really impress. “Boat” is a pretty new brand which started in early 2016 and now it is a quite popular brand in India. This particular brand did a great job by launching quality products in the span of a year. We tested Boat BassHeads 900 thoroughly.
Specifications, design, and comfort
The Boat BassHeads 900 is an on-ear headphone and has a frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz. The headphone does have an in-line microphone and remote. It has a standard 1.25m cable which should be fine for most users. The sales package includes the headphone itself and some documents.
On the design front, the BassHeads 900 is simple and functional. Made of plastic mostly, the headphone looks good but feels flimsy at the same time. It’s also light and comfortable, which ensures ease of use over long periods. The only flaw is the cable, which might be short for some users.
Performance of Boat Bassheads 900
The BassHeads 900 is an entry-level headset but doesn’t look cheap in any way. The majority of our testing was done using an Android smartphone, but we also tried it with the computer. Focus tracks were Zomboy’s Nuclear, Rang de Basanti songs, and some classical songs.
Starting with Nuclear, an aggressive dubstep track, we noticed just how bass-oriented the BassHeads 900 headphones are. There is a clear boost in the bass, and this is done to appease the majority of buyers in this price range who look for bass and attack. Although the bass is not much aggressive, it’s certainly aggressive enough for the price. The bass will not cause pain in the ear even after hours of usage.
Sound quality is very good for the price. The classical songs were so pleasing with these headphones that you will not have a mood to take it off. The in-line mic is surprisingly good. You can use it as gaming headphones as it boasts an awesome mic.
The Boat BassHeads 900 has a lot going for it. It comes from a relatively new brand, however, this particular boat headphone is quite promising and great value for the money. It sells in huge numbers and has been doing so for a while now. A lot of this is because it strikes all the right chords for a product in its category. It’s inexpensive, well designed for the price, and has a really good sound for the price. If you’re looking for a simple, comfortable and bass-driven pair of on-ear headphones, consider the BassHead 900. Currently, this headphone is available in black and white colors. It would be great if the company offers multiple color choices in the future.
Boat Bassheads 900 looks flimsy(because it is lightweight) but even after several accidental drops( about 10 times), the headphone is as it is. The height from which it was dropped is about 3 foot.
