Built Quality

Let’s first have a look at the carry case. It is tiny and very lightweight. Even with the earbuds inside boAt Airdopes 121v2 weighs only 36 grams! It is so light that you can’t even feel it when it is in your pocket or a bag.

In terms of the built quality, the charging case seems strong. I have dropped it several times now and it has survived quite well! Even the lid has served quite well. The carry case gets a solid 4/5.

These truly wireless earphones are so tiny and lightweight. Each earpod is only 4 grams. Once the earbuds are in your ear they snug tight. For a better fit, you get 2 additional pairs of ear tips. Therefore finding your sweet spot, will not be an issue. For me, the small ear tips are the way to go!

The overall built quality of Airdopes 121v2 is plastic which is expected in this price range. Underneath the boAt branding on the earbuds, you get a multi-function button for basics and advanced media playback controls & launch voice assistant (explained below). 

Since you will press the button for interacting they will accumulate oil from your fingers and become slippery. So you will need to clean them frequently. Therefore, The Airdopes 121v2 earphones get 4/5 in terms of built quality.

How to Pair BoAt Airdopes 121v2?

Once the earpods are out of the box they will turn on automatically and start blinking red and blue lights. This blinking of lights signifies that they are searching for a connection. Then head over to Bluetooth Settings on your smartphone and search for a new device.

There you’ll find Airdopes 121v2. Tap on it and allow a few permissions on an Android device. In this way, both the earphones will be connected.

The best thing I have experienced in boAt Airdopes 121v2 TWS Earbuds is you can even connect one earphone at your convenience. To connect only one earphone, take the bud out and wear it. And that’s it, it will get connected and you are all set to you. If you need both buds, wear the other one both will be connected too.

I prefer to wear one during jogging or cycling as it lets me be aware of my surroundings. As soon as one earphone is connected it switches from stereo to mono mode so that you have a decent listening experience (click here to move there).

As for connectivity, I would give boAt Airdopes 121v2 5 out of 5! I was not expecting this seamless experience.

BoAT Airdopes 121v2 Features

Both buds offer a different set of features. Pressing the left or right earpod once will pause/play the song. Pressing and holding either of the earphones will activate Siri or Google Assistant depending on your smartphone.

Now for the special features. Double pressing the left earpod will repeat the song if you are about 50% of the current song. Otherwise, it will play the previous song. Similarly doing the same on the right earpod will play the next song in the playlist.

Taking and rejecting calls using Airdopes 121v2 is also quite convenient. Pressing any of the earpods once will accept the call. To reject a call press and hold any earbud for 2 seconds.

That pretty much covers the basic and special features. Once you are done listing or taking calls, putting them back in the carry box will disconnect them from the smartphone and charging will commence for the next use!

As far as features are concerned, I would give it 4/5 out of the box! 

Battery Backup

The carry case behaves like a power bank. It has a 380 mAh internal battery capable of charging the earbuds up to 3 times. Each earbud has a 40 mAh battery that can give you juice for around 3.5 hours in a single stretch. These are the claimed figures you will witness different battery backups depending on your usage.

If you use earbuds for around 2 to 2.30 hours a day, you can expect around 2 to 3 days of battery backup from the charging case. I tried listing to around 3 hours in close intervals and the case died in 1.5 days so it completely depends on your listing habits. 

To charge the case, you’ll need a 5-watt 2 amp charger because it isn’t advisable to use any power/turbocharger as per the brand.

Depending upon your charger the carry case will consume different times. As I charge it with an Apple 5-watt charger the boAt Airdopes 121v2 charging time is around 2 hrs 30 mins.

With a different charger, It gets charged within 2 hours so you can expect anywhere between 2h to 2.30 hours.

BoAt Airdopes 121v2 Audio Quality

Considering the small form factor I was not expecting much from it. But, it’s a good TWS under 1500 Rs for audio quality. The overall sound signature is bass-centric with clear vocals and decent instrument separation. You will experience a high level of loudness, and clarity in instruments, vocals, and decent bass.

However, if you are an extreme bass lover, no worries, you can check out BoAt Airdopes 141 (Review) or BoAt Airdopes 141 ANC (Review) and enjoy the boomy sound profile.

Here’s my scorecard for BoAt Airdopes 121v2 audio quality. Clarity: 8.5/10, Loudness: 9/10, Vocals: 8/10, Bass: 8/10

BoAt a Good Brand?

As per my experience, YES! This is my 3rd boAt product after boAt Rockerz 255 Active Black color, boAt Rockerz 255 Neon color, boAt Stone Grenade Bluetooth speaker. My boAt rockerz 255 Neon was giving extremely low battery backup.

So I had to take it for servicing. Their complete service process was extensive and a proper follow-up was done. Long story short they replaced my earphones that were 11 months old! If you want to learn more about a boAt service experience in Delhi, you can have a read.

Therefore I would recommend you buy boAt products. Other than attractive pricing, after-sale service is equally important. With boAt products rest assured you are buying something which offers good quality and top-notch service.
