Hello friends how are you, I hope you all are well and safe. Friends, as you know, I usually keep writing posts on all these topics like boAt Headphones, earphones, earbuds, and Airdopes, so today I brought you such an excellent product boAt Airdopes latest 171 True Wireless Earbuds. In today’s blog post, I am reviewing boAt Airdopes 171 earbuds. And I will also give my opinion about whether you should buy it or not. So let’s talk about it.
Unboxing boAt Airdopes Review 171 True Wireless Earbuds
So we will first talk about what we get with it in its box. Inside the box, you get a warranty card which is printed by someone who makes business cards. Then you get a manual, You get a USB cable for charging, a manual explaining different functions, some extra ear tips of different sizes, and when you finally get to the case itself containing the earbuds. The case of the Airdopes doesn’t feel cheap, it has a nice matte finish that feels nice to touch, and even though there are some inconsistencies in the shade of pink on the inside and outside of the case, it still looks good. It charges via Micro USB, but that’s alright at this price point.
Let’s Talk About Design And Build Quality || boAt Airdopes Review
The shape of the earbuds is also pretty good, we again have some differences in the shade of pink but it’s not a big issue, and you can of course go for other colors like Blue or the good old black. Both the case and earbuds have LEDs to indicate their status and charging level, so that is nice to see. They are big, but their shape is nice, and I was able to wear them comfortably.
How It’s Work? Talk About Features And Functions
You can single press the single multi-function on the side button to play pause, double press the left and right earbuds button to change tracks, and you can long-press it to launch google assistant. It’s big and easy to press so it is a nice design.
It does connect to your device quickly with its Bluetooth 5.0, but one weird issue I noticed with it is that if you pair it to a new device, only one of the earbuds will connect, and then to solve this, you have to put it back in the case, and take it out again, and then it works properly. They’ve also mentioned about this in the manual, and it’s not a big deal as it only happens once when you pair to a new device, but this is a problem that none of my other true Wireless Earphones have.
Sometimes it also didn’t turn on when I took it out of the case, and another weird issue is that it gets unusually hot if you take it out of the charging case immediately after charging, but they don’t get hot during use and when the case isn’t charging, and if they don’t turn on you can just put them back and take them out again and they will work.
Let’s Talk About Battery Life
The battery life in the manual is mentioned to be 3 hours, but I tested this multiple times, and it is 4.5 hours, so that’s a very interesting case where the battery life is more than the company advertises. With the case, I was able to charge these twice completely so you should get around 15 hours of playtime which is great.
Protect From Water Splashes, Sweat Splashes And Dust Scares
They also have an IPX4 water resistance rating which means that they are protected from splashes of water, sweat, and dust scares which is nice to see at this price.
The microphone test for the BoAt Airdopes latest 171, and even though the voice doesn’t have a lot of low ends, it is still clear, so that’s great to see, it is kind of similar to the competition in this range, but being as good as competition is still a good thing.
Let’s Talk About Its Sound Quality
The sound quality on these is better than I was expecting, and it is what I would consider ‘Pretty Good’ at this price. So they do have a V-shaped sound signature, but it’s not done in a bad way like on the Realme buds Q. The bass does extend low, and it sounds nice for the price, and overall they do have a complete sound that won’t let you feel that you’re missing out on any part of the listening experience.
The treble is boosted, but not by much, so you could try reducing it by 2 or 3 decibels with EQ to get a better sound, but even without using an equalizer, they manage to sound nice. Just for reference these sound better than Redmi Earbuds S, because they have a deeper extension in the bass, and even though I like the smoother highs on Redmi Earbuds, you can achieve that on these with EQ, and overall I think that these have a significantly better sound. And the sound stage is also nice.
About boAt airdopes review I analyze they don’t have a gaming mode like some of their competition, but I don’t care about that a lot as it doesn’t work perfectly in the earbuds that have it.

So in conclusion, despite some flaws with these earphones with the connectivity, I would still recommend them, especially because the competing products like Redmi earbuds don’t sound as good and Realme buds have other issues in addition to a very unbalanced sound.
The connectivity issues also aren’t as bad as it may seem with my video, but I have to talk about them for a proper review. You could spend 700 Rs. more and get Oppo Enco W11, which will be way better, but if you are limited in this budget, the Boat Airdopes 171 will be a good choice, which I have not been able to say for the Redmi and Realme buds. So that was it for this post, I don’t have anything against boAt airdopes review, but I am slightly surprised that this is a good product that I can recommend, especially over other competing earbuds.
