There’s a big price gap between BoAt Airdopes 441 and 441 Pro. So, it’s normal for anyone like you to think about whether it’s worth spending the extra money for the Pro edition.
This BoAt Airdopes 441 vs 441 Pro ultimate comparison article will go deep into each earphone and include all the things you need to choose the right one for you.
So, let’s dive in.
BoAt Airdopes 441
BoAt Airdopes 441 Pro
Design & Build Quality
Both editions of BoAt Airdopes 441 look very compact with a matte finish with a simple design. There’s a symbol of ‘BoAt’ in each earbud.
Like almost all budget TWS earbuds it is also made of plastic. You get to choose from 15 colour options. This includes IPL editions.
For a secure fit, it got ear-wings or flags. You can remove them if you wish as they are not always comfortable for many. But I suggest using them when in heavy motion (running, exercise).
The good thing is the earbuds are so light that you won’t even feel that you are wearing them.
Overall there’s nothing more worth mentioning about the design and build quality. In short, it has a very basic design with a plastic body and average build quality.
Bass & Sound Quality
Both editions exactly sound the same with the same amount of bass. Other than the common frequency of 20-20,000Hz it got 6mm bass drivers.
As you might guess that 6mm drivers are too low to produce enjoyable bass. But the reality is different. It has too much bass that it overpowers the vocals.
If I need to explain then it’s like boosting the bass totally with the help of an equalizer and setting it to ‘Rock’. But the vocals/sound quality itself is very clean and nice.
For example, when I tested ‘Call out my name’ by’ The Weekend’, verse 1 and pre-chorus sounded so good. But as soon as the chorus started with bass then it started to overpower the vocals.
If you feel the bass is too much then I will suggest you use an equalizer app and set it to ‘Pop’ preset. The pop preset normally focuses on vocals and reduces the bass.
You can do that by reducing the 60Hz bar as well at the left and try adjusting the other frequency bars and to discover your sweet spot.
Battery Life & Charging Time
This is where two editions go in separate ways. The Airdopes 441 Pro is all about monster-like battery backup.
BoAt Airdopes 441 and 441 Pro have 30 hours (5 hours in earbuds and 25 hours in charging case) and 150 hours (5 hours in earbuds and 145 hours in charging case) of total battery backup respectively.
The Airdopes 441 non-Pro takes around 1.5 hours to get fully charged. What is surprising is despite having such a huge battery of 2600mAh it also takes around 1.5-2 hours.
Because of USB-C charging ports, they get fully charged really fast. The 30 hours of battery backup is actually great based on the competition.
Unfortunately, there’s no fast charging. But I guess that’s unnecessary.
The non-Pro can survive at least a week without charging and the Pro version might survive a month depending on the usage.
Controls & Functions
BoAt Airdopes 441 has a touch panel to pause/play each earbud along with features like activating voice assistant, taking/ending calls.
The touch panel tends to not be that great in budget earbuds. It is kind of inaccurate and can face lag. It might take a while for you to get used to it. Sometimes
Note: You can’t control volume.
The Pro and non-Pro charging cases are the same. There’s an indicator in the front to indicate charging status. The charging port is located on the back.
Bluetooth Version: Both editions have Bluetooth 5.0 with a 10 m range.
Water-Resistance: Both are IPX7 rated. IPX7 rated earbuds are capable of surviving in the 1-meter deep water for 30 minutes. So, sweat, normal water splashes are nothing to scared of.
Call/Mic Quality: The only thing I can say, they are just good for day-to-day calling. Don’t expect much.
Noise Cancellation: Seeing the price tag of the Pro edition I was expecting ANC (Active Noise Cancellation). But sadly both just have passive noise cancellation. Good enough for canceling fan and most ambient noises.
Accessories: USB-C cable for charging, earbuds of different sizes, and all the required papers like the manual, warranty card, etc are included.
Users’ Report, Pros & Cons
BoAt Airdopes 441
According to users, it is a value for money product. It got good quality sound and bass. The bass is troublesome for many as the bass is too high and often overpower the vocals.
The design and build quality are good enough. So far it is comfortable for most people.
They found features like dual pairing really useful as it let you stay connected with two devices without having to switch.
Battery backup is an issue for many. Other than that it’s a good pair of wireless earbuds.
BoAt Airdopes 441 Pro
What I understood is that BoAt Airdopes 441 Pro is one of those ideal budget earbuds.
Excluding problems like a poor mic and noise cancellation, it got good sound and very deep bass, huge battery backup.
Users are happy to recommend it to anyone who is looking for lightweight earbuds with great sound and thumping bass.
BoAt Airdopes 441 or 441 Pro?
Out of all the things, the only area Airdopes 441 Pro excels in is the battery backup, and the rest of the things are all the same.
Now if you ask me then I’ll say that for me 30 hours of backup is good enough. The 30 hours playback is great compared to most of the earbuds on the market in the same budget.
Having 150 hours of battery backup surely feels nice but it is not a must-have which doesn’t make it worthy of spending your hard-earned money on.
It would be a good deal if it had ANC, bigger bass drivers with natural bass, better mics.
So, my suggestion will go get the BoAt Airdopes 441 non-Pro edition. It is worth it and more cost cost-effective.
