boAt Airdopes 121 pro is a stem-shaped in-ear design earbud and it has a digital battery charging indicator outside the charging case. Whereas the boat Airdopes 121v2 is a beads-shaped in-ear design and has a digital battery charging indicator inside the charging case.

Build Quality

As we open the case, we see the Left and Right earbuds marked. The case is so compact and minimalistic at the same time and has a digital battery life indicator which is of great use if your earbuds have long battery life. It helps to trace the battery usage so you can avoid running out of battery. The build quality of the earbuds is kind of mediocre. One can not complain about its cheaper build as these are budget earbuds.

Although this is not a complaint the earbuds are not that impressive in design. It is a typical design but due to its lightweight and ergonomic touch, the earbuds fit snugly in the ears. Both the earbuds and the case is water resistant and rated IPX4 for it. So you will get to enjoy the music in the rain too.

Other than this, the case and the earbuds are very compact the comfortable. The lightweight earbuds do not bother your earbuds and you will enjoy these for a long time listening. Perhaps this is the reason why they made the earbuds battery 8 hours. The earbuds can be controlled through touch controls on the well-maintained CTC area of each earpiece.

Power on/off & Setup

As you lift up the lid of the case, the earbuds automatically turn on and tried to connect with your device if paired already. If not paired, then you need to pair them likewise all other earbuds. You may touch and hold the CTC area for 4-5 seconds to turn it on/off

Button Controls & Commands

Although it is very common, the earbuds come with touch controls. Each earpiece has a CTC area indicated by the boAt icon on top. The earbuds are perfect for those who do not like traditional-style earbuds. The Boat’s touch-sensitive earbuds are easy to control.

Connectivity and Pairing

boAt Airdopes 121 Pro features the latest Bluetooth v5.3 with Enhanced Data rate (EDR) which provide you ultimate gaming and movie experience with 65ms ultra-low latency. The earbuds have IWP technology which quickly connects the earbuds with the last paired device. Talking of the experience, it is true in the case of any Bluetooth device provided that it is within the range of 8-10 meters of distance.

Battery & Charging

The battery and charging factor of the earbuds is a pure highlight. It will make these earbuds a legendary masterpiece. The earbuds run 8 hours non-stop with a single charge. No budget earbuds are even close to it. the boAt has taken this to next level. Apart from this, the case itself carries 32 hours of more playtime which charges the earbuds when needed. This is what they claim, but does it delivers the same? Yes, the earbuds do it exactly. the earbuds last 7-8 hours on higher volumes, and runs even more in case of below 50% volume.

Sound Quality

The sound quality of the earbuds is much improved than other earbuds in this class. We get boAt signature sound quality, ENx technology, and Deep bass with clarity.

Talking of the equalizer settings, we get deep bass which energizes the sound booms and makes the lows more powered. You can customize the equalizer in some music players and you will notice that the earbuds are much more capable. They deliver a typical boAt signature sound quality, Sound clarity is mediocre, and the lows and highs are expanded in depth.

The call quality is not good enough as it should be. Perhaps it is the ENx technology that filters the external noise but the clarity is gone. You can understand if you record your call but you will notice it is not clear and that will be a complaint.
