If we go to the build quality, you will get the complete tangled free flat cable which is a very major positive factor, making it rigid and durable. If we take a look t the 3.5 mm pin, it is 90 degrees angled which is kind of a mixed feature, some will like it, some don’t. And if we take a look t the rear pieces, they are made up of metal, which has a great design and made with deep accuracy. The only negative point here is- heaviness.  These earphones are very heavy as compared to normal earphones because of the metal earpieces and rigid flat wire.

Sennheiser cx 180 is very good looking and stylish. If we take a first look at it, we can easily say that these are kind of a “sports earphones”, means you can use them while running jogging, playing football, cricket and etc, and try to feel fit for you. It is a positive as well a negative factor. Due to making it a very lightweight earphones, they used a very thin wire which is less durable and didn’t provide you the call receiver and mic. If we take a look at the earpieces, they re very well made, detailing is one the peak and very comfortable.


comfortability and durability

Boat Bassheads 225

Well, Boat bassheads are very durable. The flat thick wire gives it a strength to hold every tight situation and it can tackle it easily. The joints where the single wire divided into two [for earpieces, right, and left] is very tough as they provide a connector to it which is made up of plastic. the metal earpieces give it a nice look and durability. For a long run, it might be the best. But as durability increased, the comfortability decreased. These all features to make Boat bassheads 225 durable leads to make it heavy and the weight you can feel easily while walking on the road while listening to a song. The metal pieces lead to popping out from ears, making it less comfortable, but you can get used to it after a month of usage.

These earphones, as I said are “sports earphones” which you can use while doing anything, means these earphones are very comfortable. These earphones are very lightweight, even when you plugged in these earphones for more than half an hour, you can’t feel its weight, and the very thin wire leads to decrease the extra problems like- stuck wire in bag or pocket, etc. give you an extra layer of comfortability. Moving towards its durability, everything is fine if you want to use it for a long-term, but its wire is very delicate. It can’t handle even one-time heavy pressure or in case if these earphones will be stuck in the chain [by chance, of a pocket or a bag], the wire can easily get the cut on it. Only this is the negative point in cx 180. But for comfortability, a big thumbs up.


Audio Quality – boat bassheads 225 vs sennheiser cx 180
