Build Quality

The whole thing is plastic build and not any ordinary plastic. Afterall we are talking about Boat. The plastic that is used is high quality no doubts about that in my head. The wire that we get is also of a very good quality rubber. Also has an inline microphone.

Their is a plastic build audio control station on the wire that has a button on it. This buttons main function is simply to engage in voice call and control audio play and pause. You can also use this button to activate google voice assistant. we also get silicon based eartips. And a pack of extras of them.


For the matter of fact every good or I should say quality build device is often durable too. Same is the case here, bassheads 100 are quiet durable. But still they are made to be handle with care. you can use them for listening music while exercise or whoever your prefer. I am not saying that they are extremely durable but a few tosses wont do anything at all.

Sound Quality

These earphones perform quiet decent and I can say you should consider buying them. Some face a problem of low sound on video platforms. This is because these are bassheads designed for music. So, when they are used for music the perform very well.

  • Inline Microphone is also there.
  • The audio quality is very good and is totally upto the mark for a price of less than 500.

Last time when I bought any earphones from motorola I literally used them for more than one and a half year. And this is the only thing that lasted this long in my hands. I means even today I have them with me and they work fine. It is because they got damaged by mistake and one side is cracked but they still work perfect. So if you are looking for something durable. You should definitely go for motorola.
