BoAt Rockerz 400 & 450 come at exactly the same price. No doubt it is hard to choose without using them yourself.
But don’t worry. This BoAt Rockerz 400 vs BoAt Rockerz 450 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.

Design & Build Quality
If you like minimal and lightweight headphones instead of bulky gaming headphones then you’ll the design of both Rockerz 400 & 450.
Rockerz 400 (weighs 124 grams) is way lighter compared to Rockerz 450 (weighs 168 grams). But I like the design of Rockerz 450 way more for the casing and branding.
But again, Rockerz 400 has a better build quality and button layout. BoAt did a good job using cotton earpads instead of leather. The upper layer won’t wear out like leather earpads.
Both headphones are foldable but I still won’t recommend you to carry them in your backpack. Rockerz 450 is still okay but you should either keep them around your neck or use a case.
So, I can’t really declare any one of the two best in terms of design. Both have their own pros and cons.
Rockerz 400 is lightweight, durable, and more comfortable. On the other hand, Rockerz 450 has a great design but is a bit fragile and comparatively better for portability.
In longer sessions, both can be painful but slightly less for Rockerz 400 as it is lighter.
Bass & Sound Quality
Just like any standard earphones/headphones both have a 20-20kHz frequency range and 32 ohms impedance.
Slightly difference in terms of sensitivity. Rockerz 400 has 110dB/mW and Rockerz 450 108dB/mW. Not really a big deal. Ideal for headphones. Those 2dB extra sensitivity won’t cause any noticeable difference.
What caught my attention most is the sound quality and bass. Even though both have the same 40mm drivers, Rockerz 400 sounds much better and has deeper bass.
BoAt must have used better quality 40mm bass drivers in Rockerz 400. Bigger is not always better, sometimes it’s the quality.
I was sure about the sound quality but not about the bass until I tested some more pop songs with some great bassline.
Very small difference but noticeable if you do some testing and listen carefully to the bassline (especially when used in AUX mode).
So yes Rockerz 400 has better sound and bass quality at the same price but before you leave you should at least check the next factor before you choose.
Battery Life & Charging Time
Rockerz 400 & Rockerz 450 have a playback time of 8 hours & 15 hours respectively. This is the point you must consider.
The 8 hours of playback time is not that bad. Suppose you use headphones for 3 hours a day. It should last at least 3 days in my experience. Then you can always switch to AUX mode.
Now Rockerz 450 has 15 of playback time which can easily last 4-5 days. So, it ultimately depends on how many hours you use headphones a day.
Rockerz 400 takes around 2 hours to get fully charged while Rockerz 450 around 3 hours. Both use micro-USB for charging.
Controls & Functions
Both have 3 buttons on the left side. One multifunction button for power, play/pause, take/end calls, activating voice assistant.
The other 2 buttons are obviously for volume control. One thing I like about Rockerz 400 is that the multifunction button is slightly raised. It makes it easier to detect buttons.
Connectivity: Rockerz 400 & Rockerz 450 have Bluetooth 5.0 & 4.2 respectively with a 10m range. Both have an AUX port for wired connectivity with 3.5mm jack support.
Water-Resistance: Sadly, none of the two headphones is dust, sweat, and water-resistant.
Call/Mic Quality: Both headphones have a good quality in-built mic. I had a better experience with Rockerz 400 mic.
Noise Cancellation: Neither have ANC (Active Noise Cancellation). Rockerz 400 is slightly better for passive noise cancellation.
Accessories: Micro-USB cable, AUX cable, and all the required papers like the manual, warranty card, etc are included.
