After Apple Airpods came into the game, more & more headphone makers are leaning towards truly wireless earbuds. Last time we were talking about a new truly wireless solution from 1More. They make some amazing headphones without a doubt. But, what about the more mainstream smartphone accessory makers? Well, boAt is one of the most popular mainstream accessory makers in India and they have introduced a pair of Bluetooth 5 powered truly wireless earbuds that have modern features built in but, doesn’t break the bank. They are calling it the boAt Airdopes 411 & it has some really nice features.
boAt Airdopes 411 Specifications
- Bluetooth Version: v5.0 + EDR
- Support: HSP/HFP/A2DP/AVRCP
- Transmission Range: 33 feet (without obstructions)

As the specifications suggest, these are some pretty impressive features that boAt has included. Bluetooth 5 should be pretty useful for better connectivity & range. The IPX4 water resistance should make the device usable during workouts & 3.5 hours per charge with goes up to 12 hours if you count the case in. It is slightly on the lower side but, should be okay for most people. Oh, and it can also access Google Assistant & Siri with a long press on its built-in multi-functional button. But, it’s not all sunshine & rainbows.
There is no support for Qualcomm aptX or aptX HD. The battery life is slightly on the lower side considering the battery size isn’t that small. But, I think that all of this comes back to the price. The boAt Airdopes 411 costs 2999 INR which is way less than the 1More Stylish True Wireless earbuds that cost 5499 INR. So, is it worth to pick the boAt instead of the 1More? Well, from a pure hardware perspective, if you have the money to get the 1More, you should pick that one up. But, if you’re a little low on budget, the boAt ones might be a decent option. If you’re looking for the boAt, by the way, it’s being sold on Amazon India.
