Bass & Sound Quality
Firstly, both have earphones that have the same 20Hz – 20KHz frequency response. Perfect for human ears.
Even though both Mi Basic and Bassheads 100 have the same 10m driver size, the loudness of Mi Basic is low even on the highest volume according to many users.
The bass is on the average side for both. Might not totally satisfying for bass lovers but good enough.
Now lastly, the sound quality. The sound quality of Mi basic is way clearer and better than Bassheads 100. This has a reason as well.
The reason is the impedance. Mi Basic has 32 ohms impedance while Bassheads 100 has 16 ohms. The higher the impedance is the will the clarity of sound.
Based on all these factors, Mi Basic is clearly the winner of this section.
In-Line Mic & Remote
Both of the earphones have an in-line remote with a button that lets you pause/play songs, answer/end calls. Also, both come with a mic.
Normally there’s no complaint about the Mi Basic mic. But Bassheads 100 mic can be a bit disturbing.

Bassheads 100 has a 1.2m long tangle-free cord. Mi Basic also has a tangle-free cord. Just the cord length is 1.25m. The ideal length and type of cords for regular uses.
Users’ Report, Pros & Cons
boAt Bassheads 100
The majority of the customers are satisfied with they got paying an affordable price. The sound quality and bass are good enough. Avid bass lovers are a bit disappointed but good enough for casual usage.
The design and tangle-free cord are some features this earphone gets most appreciated for.
Few have complained about the mic, how the person on the other side is not able to hear sometimes clearly.
Also, several users have reported it stopped working or one of the sides stopped working after a couple of months.
The sound quality is what customers praise it for. Other things like bass, cord, and mic quality are pretty good as well.
What drew my attention is this earphone stopped working after just 1 – 2 months of usage for a good amount of customers. Maximum I saw 4 – 6.5 months.
The complaint of ‘one side stopped working’ or ‘completely stopped working’ is very frequent.
I will be very honest with you here. For the actual purpose, to enjoy music, Mi Basic earphones are no doubt great. The sound quality is a lot better than Bassheads 100.
From this point of view, Mi Basic should be the winner of this comparison. But the main question is how long you will actually be able to use them.
The complaint of ‘stopped working after one or two months’ is so common that I’m afraid I can recommend Mi Basic to you. I don’t want to waste your money just on an earphone that may only last a few months.
You will at least want that the earphones will last 6 months or a year. This problem is also present in Bassheads 100 and many other earphones but relatively lower.
So, in my opinion, I suggest you go with boAt Bassheads 100. The majority of customers only complain only after a minimum of 6 months or so.
Your experience will be a little lower but a much better choice from a long-term perspective.
