INTRO: The boat has today launched a brand new pair of truly wireless earphones in India. The Boat Airdopes 131 comes with an ‘Insta Wake N’ Pair’ feature that basically means the earphones will connect to your phone instantly after opening the case. They come in a sleek, ergonomic design and are claimed to offer a comfortable fit. That sounds about right, considering the earbuds weigh in at just 3.5g each.
There’s a 13mm driver inside, which should result in good quality sound output, and the earphones have a frequency response of 20Hz to 20,000Hz. That’s also fine, especially considering the price these earphones come in at.
Also on the earphones is a multi-function button. Among other things, you can use this button to activate the voice assistant on your phone. That’s a feature most TWS earphones have these days, and it’s a rather handy feature to have as well.
For connectivity, the Boat Airdopes 131 uses Bluetooth 5.0. That’s pretty great considering these are really affordable TWS and I would have not been surprised to see Bluetooth 4.2 or even 4.1 here.
Boat claims a battery life of 3 hours on a single charge. This can be increased further to 15 hours in total with the charging case. That’s not the best battery life you will find, but it’s not bad, and for ₹1,299 it’s actually fairly decent, provided it lasts as long as Boat is claiming.
The new earphones will be sold on Flipkart starting tomorrow (August 22, 12 PM) for ₹1,299. So if you’re looking for affordable TWS earphones, these might be worth a look.
