Comparing BoAt Rockerz 450 with Rockerz 600 doesn’t make sense. So, I chose to do with Rockerz 450 Pro instead.
Both have very similar specs and features. Without testing yourself no doubt it will be hard to choose.
But don’t worry. This BoAt Rockerz 450 Pro vs Rockerz 600 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
BoAt Rockerz 600
Design & Build Quality
Rockerz 450 Pro has a decent design with premium colours, finishing, branding, and a lot. Looking at it anyone will say it’s an expensive headphone.
It’s foldable, the buttons look beautiful and very lightweight (168 grams only). The only problem is it’s a bit fragile.
Carrying it in your backpack with a ton of other solid things is not a good idea. Using a case is recommended in case you really have to.
Rockerz 600 on the other hand is pretty unique looking. Looks very much like a studio headphone. The earcups are square instead of round.
Unlike Rockerz 450 Pro, it has some metals too that make it strong and durable. It’s foldable as well.
For portability Rockerz 600 is a better option for foldable design and metallic adjusters.
Even though Rockerz 600 has a very unique design but the design itself is not the best one. Some like it some not.
When it comes to comfort then both are good for short sessions like one hour but then you might start feeling pain in your ears.
As both are on-ear headphones, there’s nothing you can do about it. Just make sure to take breaks.
To conclude, Rockerz 450 Pro has looks but is not so durable while Rockerz 600 has both of the qualities.
Bass & Sound Quality
Surprisingly the specs of both headphones are very similar. From the surface, it might seem they both sound equal but actually have some noticeable differences.
Both headphones have a 20-20kHz frequency range, 32 ohms impedance, and 40mm drivers.
Rockerz 450 Pro & Rockerz 600 have 108dB/mW & 110dB/mW sensitivity. Only a difference of 2dB. Not even a matter to worry about.
One thing I have to admit is that both have excellent sound quality. But spending some more time with them I realized something.
Rockerz 450 Pro is slightly bass-heavy than the non-Pro version and Rockerz 600. Not that much that it will overpower the treble but it’s noticeable.
Rockerz 600 on the other hand has a great balance between treble and bass. It sounds almost as good as Rockerz 510.
Having stereo speakers is the main reason behind the greater quality of music experience I guess.
I recently compared Rockerz 510 with Rockerz 600 where I mentioned that Rockerz 600 could be the same as Rockerz 510 if the bass was slightly deeper.
So yes personally I felt Rockerz 600 sounds more clear, has nice bass with a very ideal balance between treble & bass.
Battery Life & Charging Time
This is the section (and the only section) where Rockerz 450 Pro has some great advantages over Rockerz 600.
Rockerz 450 Pro & 600 have a total battery life of 70 hours & 20 hours respectively.
To be honest, a BT headphone with 20 hours of playback time is a lot. Rockerz 450 Pro is okay if you use headphones all day or in case you only want to charge once a month.
Both take around 2.5-3 hours to get fully charged. Rockerz 450 Pro offers ASAP charging (10 hours in 10 minutes)
Sadly, Rockerz 600 has mico-USB. At this price, I was expecting USB-C like Rockerz 450 Pro.
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 other 2 buttons are obviously for volume control. The only difference is the button placements.
Personally, I found the buttons of Rockerz 600 are more user-friendly.
Connectivity: Both have Bluetooth 5.0 with a 10m range. Both have an AUX port for wired connectivity with 3.5mm jack support.
Water-Resistance: IPX7 rated Rockerz 450 Pro provides dust, sweat & water-resistant. But Rockerz 600 is not.
Call/Mic Quality: Both headphones have an in-built mic and I’m satisfied with the quality.
Noise Cancellation: Neither have ANC. Passive noise cancellation is what you got.
Accessories: Charging cable, AUX cable, and all the required papers like the manual, warranty card, etc are included.
