It’s been 2 years since Infinity Glide 510 is here. The Rockerz 450 Pro of BoAt is the only headphone that can compete with Glide 510.
Both have a huge battery life which is the main attraction of both. The only confusion is the sound and bass quality.
This BoAt Rockerz 450 Pro vs Infinity Glide 510 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 450 Pro
Infinity Glide 510
Design & Build Quality
Rockerz 450 Pro is mainly made of plastic overall. The headrest part of the headband has soft cushioning for comfort.
Depending on the colour, you get to see two tones of the same colour to make it look attractive. The overall build quality and finishing quality look very good.
It’s just not so durable near the adjuster part. If you put too much force accidentally it might break. So, even though it’s foldable I recommend keeping it in a separate part of your backpack or using a headphone case.
Infinity Glide 510 is also made of totally plastic but the quality felt slightly lower to me compared to Rockerz 450 Pro.
But it’s solid and feels durable. It might a bit bulky but surprisingly it weighs only 110 grams. Around 58 grams lighter than Rockerz 450 Pro.
Unlike Rockerz 450 Pro, Glide 510 is not foldable but the earcups are rotatable to sit properly on your ears and keep on surfaces.
Personally, I found it slightly more comfortable than Rockerz 450 Pro. Maybe it’s because it is lighter because they both have almost similar quality earpads.
To conclude, Rockerz 450 Pro has a better design and finishing while Glide 510 is more comfortable. But it can vary from person to person due to the different shapes of ears.
Bass & Sound Quality
Both headphones have a 20-20kHz frequency range, 32 ohms impedance but different driver sizes and sensitivity.
Rockerz 450 Pro & Glide 510 have 40mm & 36mm drivers respectively. The 36mm is an unusual number.
Glide 510 has 102dB/mW sensitivity which is only 6dB lesser than Rockerz 450 Pro’s 108dB/mW sensivity.
There are two modes in Glide 510. Normal mode & Deep Bass mode. Let’s talk about the normal mode vs Rockerz 450 first.
I liked how the treble and bass are properly balanced in Glide 510 and the vocals and instruments sound very clear.
Rockerz 450 Pro, on the other hand, is slightly bass-heavy which is no big deal if you are not paying too much attention but it actually makes the mid & high slight quieter.
Coming to the ‘Deep Bass mode‘ of Glide 510 which is personally didn’t really like because it boosts the bass to a level that it starts overpowering the mids and highs (more than Rockerz 450 Pro).
I’m glad that Glide 510 actually has a separate mode for deep bass because not everyone likes artificial overpowering bass. I prefer using it ‘Normal mode’.
So, I personally liked the Glide 510 more in terms of sound and bass compared to Rockerz 450 Pro. The normal mode doesn’t have super punchy bass but not too low either.
Just enough amount to create an ideal experience. Then you always got the bass mode to go berserk.
Battery Life & Charging Time
The new improved version of Glide 510 absolutely nailed everything at a very affordable price.
Rockerz 450 Pro & Glide 510 have a total battery life of 70 hours & 72 hours respectively.
Keep in mind that Glide 510 is even surpassed Rockerz 450 Pro’s battery life at a 25% cheaper price.
Even the previous version used to give 5 hours longer battery (total 20 hours) than Rockerz 450 (15 hours) at a cheaper price.
Not only that it gets fully charged in around 2 hours having nigger battery while Rockerz 450 Pro takes 2.5-3 hours.
A few things that BoAt did better is including USB-C and 10 hours of playback time in 10 minutes (fast charging).
Glide 510 has a fast-charging feature too but only 2 hours in 10 minutes and it uses micro-USB for charging.
Controls & Functions
Both have the same 3 buttons on the left side. One multifunction button for power, play/pause, take/end calls, activating voice assistant.
The rest of the buttons are to control the volume. The volume buttons are what you need to use to switch modes in Glide 510.
Connectivity: Both have Bluetooth 5.0 (10m range) but only Rockerz 450 Pro has an AUX port for wired connectivity with 3.5mm jack support.
Water-Resistance: IPX7 rated Rockerz 450 Pro provides dust, sweat & water-resistant. But Infinity Glide 510 is not.
Call/Mic Quality: Both headphones have an in-built mic and are good enough for calling and zoom/meet sessions.
Noise Cancellation: Neither have ANC. The passive noise cancellation for both I’ll just say okay. Some noise will reach your ears even in high volume.
Accessories: Charging cable, AUX cable, and all the required papers like the manual, warranty card, etc are included.
