The Quality Build That Deserves a Nod
True to boAt’s reputation, the Airdopes 170 do not disappoint. The case and earbuds, albeit plastic, are sturdy and feel premium.
The matte finish adds a touch of elegance while warding off fingerprints. Further, the magnetic hold is strong, ensuring that the earbuds don’t accidently fall off when you open the case.
The fact that it weighs just 40 grams with a carrying case makes it travel-friendly too!
Comfort is King
Comfort, often neglected in budget earbuds, gets prime importance in the Airdopes 170.
The stem-style earbuds fit snuggly, and the earbuds’ 45° tilt ensures that they won’t fall out no matter how much you move.
The Battery That Lasts
The Airdopes 170 earns top marks for battery life. At an average volume, they run for roughly 5 hours on a single charge and the charging case extends this to a whopping 40 hours.
Plus, a quick 10-minute charge can extend your music time by two extra hours.
Crystal Clear Audio Experience
boAt is known for delivering bass-heavy audio, and the Airdopes 170 is no exception. But there’s an interesting twist: it is well-balanced and does not compromise on clarity.
With clear vocals and punchy treble, the music experience is enjoyable on these earbuds. The addition of 13mm drivers ensures the volume capacity is ample too.
Gaming Experience & Call Quality
Gaming on the Airdopes 170 is a joy. Whether indoors or outdoors, the latency is minimal enough not to disrupt your gaming experience.
The quad mic with ENx technology ensures good call quality indoors, but outdoors and in noisy environments, the quality dwindles slightly.
All things considered, we have sturdy and comfortable earbuds that deliver a robust audio experience with reasonable battery life.
Thoughtful additions like IPX4 water and sweat resistance, IWP Technology, and a win factor for gamers make it an excellent value for money.
