Design & Build Quality
BoAt Rockerz 510 no doubt looks like a gaming headphone while Rockerz 600 looks very much like a studio headphone used for song recording.
Rockerz 510 is heavier (around 70 grams) compared to Rockerz 600 due to its bulky design. But still, it doesn’t cause pain as the earcups are bigger than usual.
The cushion or earpad design of Rockerz 600 reminds me very much of Skullcandy headphones. Slightly less comfortable due to on-ear design.
The earpads of Rockerz 600 are covered with faux leather but I’m worried about how long they will last as most headphones in this budget has a thin leather coating. So is Rockerz 510.

No distortion. But both have some sound leakage issues but only if the volume is above 70%-80%.
