Just because the number is 330 is higher than 255 doesn’t mean Rockerz 330 is better than Rockerz 255 Pro+.
Both belong under Rs 1,500-2,000 budget but because the price is pretty much the same, it can confusing to choose without proper research.
This BoAt Rockerz 330 vs Rockerz 255 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 Rockerz 330
BoAt Rockerz 255 Pro+
Design & Build Quality
Trust me if Rockerz 255 Pro+ had the magnetic control panel/board like Rockerz 330 then it could be the most amazing Bluetooth neckband earphone of BoAt.
But I like the neckband of the Rockerz 255 series more than the Rockerz 330. Because the neckband is flat, there is less chance of any break.
Personally, I find it easier to manage but the additional controller on the cord is what makes it bulky in my opinion.
Expect the controller location, everything about both earphones is good. Both have nice-looking and well-built earbuds with ear wings.
The ear wings can cause discomfort in longer sessions but they are great to have during heavy motion. As both are optimized for activities like running, workout as well.
The Rockerz 330 has 6 colours options to choose from and Rockerz 255 Pro+ has a huge collection of 13 colours along with IPL editions.
To conclude, both are very lightweight and comforting to use. The quality of the material is good and so is the finishing.
Bass & Sound Quality
The best thing about Rockerzz 255 Pro+ is that it has a Qualcomm chipset that supports aptX codec via Bluetooth. Music lovers know how great is this.
Where Rockerz 330 supports AAC, MP3, etc codecs. The AAC codec isn’t power-efficient like aptX which often results in poor sound quality via Bluetooth.
The Rockerz 330 has 99dB SPL (Sound Pressure Level). The ideal SPL for devices like smartphones. Unfortunately no mention of SPL for Rockerz 255 Pro+ from BoAt.
Both have the same 10mm bass drivers but thankfully the bass of Rockerz 255 Pro+ isn’t overpowering like Rockerz 330.
In Rockerz 255 Pro+, there is an ideal balance of treble and bass. The natural bass quality of a 10mm driver isn’t that deep but using an equalizer can improve the experience.
To conclude, Rockerz 255 Pro+ has aptX codec support which produces better sound quality while saving power via Bluetooth and moderate bass.
While Rockerz 330’s sound quality is good enough but the bass is all over the place which can be tiresome after some time.
Battery Life & Charging Time
BoAt Rockerz 335 and 255 Pro+ have 30 hours and 40 hours of full battery backup respectively. Really mind-blowing.
Both have an ASAP/fast charging feature. You can get 10 hours of playback time in just 10 minutes.
Rockerz 330 gets fully charged in just 40 minutes while Rockerz 255 Pro+ can take up to 2 hours. Not having USB-C support is one reason.
Rockerz 330 got a USB-C port which is nice but Rockerz 255 Pro+ has micro-USB. Not that fast or time-efficient like USB-C.
Controls & Functions
Rockerz 330 has a magnetic control panel attached with the neckband and Rockerz 255 Pro+ has a separate remote.
Despite different locations of the buttons both have the same functions like buttons for power off/on, play/pause songs, videos, take/end calls, activating voice assistant.
Also, there are separate buttons for volume control as well.
Bluetooth Version: Both have Bluetooth 5.0 with a 10 m range.
Water-Resistance: IPX5 rated Rockerz 330 can resist light jet spray and IPX7 rated Rockerz 255 Pro+ can survive in 1-meter water for 30 minutes.
Call/Mic Quality: Because Rockerz 225 Pro+ has CVC (Clear Voice Capture) technology, the mic performs comparatively better than Rockerz 330 in noisy environments.
Noise Cancellation: None of them have Active Voice Cancellation (ANC). Just make sure to use the ideal size of ear cups for proper Passive Noise Cancellation (PNC).
Accessories: Micro-USB/USB-C cable for charging, charging case, ear caps of different sizes, and all the required papers like the manual, warranty card, etc are included.
