The first thing in the box is a USB to Micro USB charging cable. Then comes the 2 pairs of extra ear tips (for small and large ears. Medium ones are already applied out of the box.

You also get safety information with do’s and don’ts while operating the headset. Also, information about pairing and playback controls guide.

And trust me Jacqueline Fernandez is not the reason I bought the earphones!! Jokes apart, a warranty card with the boAt customer care number.

There is a docket for other boAt products that will be handy when buying a new boAt product. That’s pretty much everything from the box, Let’s connect it to a phone and check out the music playback controls.

BoAt Rockerz 255 Built Quality

boAt Rockerz 255 Long Term Review

Be it budget or even top-of-the-line earphones, built quality matters. Since I am not a soft user let’s have a look at how Boat Rockerz 255 has survived my rough handling after 2 years of usage!

The neckband is as good as it was the day I got it. There’s not a single cut on the wires which is common among rubber neckbands after 2 years of usage. Magnetic connectors on both earbuds work like a charm; there’s still a “click” noise when they bond together!

The cable connecting both earbuds has also survived quite well. These are tangle-free cables so if you keep them in a bag they will not tangle which is a good thing. BoAt branding on the earphones has faded. Since the left and right signs are engraved on the neckband they don’t show any effects.

The Earbuds also reflect the faded boAt logo. The best part is the ear hooks are still intact and do a great job of keeping them in the ears even when you are running. Volume rockers and play/pause buttons work just as well as they were from the beginning.

BoAt Rockerz 255 Audio Quality

Best Budget Bluetooth Earphones

BoAt knows what Indian customers want on a budget. Any audio gear should have good bass, loudness, decent vocals, and a little treble. BoAt nailed it with Rockerz 255.

If the bass is the top priority, this one is for you. Also, you will not be disappointed with the rest like treble, loudness, and vocals. Usually, budget neckbands start audio distortion at max volume, but not with Rockerz 255. In fact, at max volume it it’s strong and in the zone.

This means BoAt has used good quality audio drivers and for a price of 1200 to 1500 Rs it’s good. Because of that, boAt Rockerz 255 gets 8.5 out of 10.

Moreover taking calls using boAt Rockerz is also possible. You can receive and end the call by pressing the center circle button. That’s pretty much it. While we are on the subject of calling, the mic quality is great in a silent environment.

However, in the metro or busy streets, the mic captures more of the nuisance around you than your voice. So the other caller might not hear you. That’s the only issue I had with this Bluetooth headset.

So for call quality, you can check out Infinity Glide 120 (Review) it offers amazing call quality.

How’s The boAt Rockerz 255 Battery Backup?

They have been great so far. I own 2 of the same models one in black color & the other one in Neon. The Neon was 11 months old when I realized it was not giving more than 3 hours of battery backup. However, the other one was going around 6 hours tops.

So I had an experience with boAt service as well! Long story short in the end I got a replacement! If you want you can check it out.

Initially, I got around 5-6 hours of battery backup on boAt Rockerz 255 which is good. After 2 years of use, the backup is between 3-5 hours. So, BoAt has a great-quality battery and you will be fine for about 3 years.

BoAt Rockerz 255 Any Good?

So all in all, the BoAt Rockerz 255 is a good neckband you can buy or gift someone. Trust me you will not be disappointed.
