Boult is a pretty good Indian brand for anyone finding a good pair of wireless earphones in a very budget-friendly price range.
Boult is currently known for providing good sound quality at a very affordable price. But when it comes to competing with OnePlus Bullets Z, does it have a chance?
This Oneplus Bullets Wireless Z vs Boult Audio ProBass 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.
OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z
Boult Audio ProBass Curve
Design & Build Quality
OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z comes in 5 colours – Black, Blue, Green, Orange & White, and the Boult ProBass comes in 4 colours options with attractive names – Black, Onyx Grey, Crimson Red & Azure Blue.
Bullets Z earbuds have a cool glossy finish and a super comfortable neckband made of silicone rubber. The control panel also looks great.
Boult ProBass might look a bit bulky, the neckband is solid, a bit heavy. You can really feel the heaviness if you take both in your hands and compare.
The build quality of both earphones is solid. The design of Boult might be a bit old-fashioned but they didn’t compromise to use good quality material.
Even though both are tough and solid but for design, my vote is on OnePlus Bullets Z.
Bass & Sound Quality
OnePlus Bullets Z Edition got the ideal frequency of 20Hz – 20KHz. I’m not really sure about the exact numbers of Boult ProBass due to lack of information but I’m guessing it will be the same.
OnePlus Bullets Z has 9.2 mm drivers which provide good quality bass but are not totally satisfactory for bass lovers. Boult didn’t mention the driver size but personally, the bass of Boulth ProBass is a bit lower compared to Bullets Z.
Both got nice sound quality. You can’t really go wrong in this part. This time OnePlus didn’t mention the impedance but it’s 30 ohms for Boult ProBass.
But based on the sound quality I can say that the OnePlus Bullets Z also has 30-32 ohms impedance.
Even though the sound quality is great for both, OnePlus Bullets Z got an advantage because of the bass.
Battery Life & Charging Time
The Warp charge technology of the OnePlus is really a game-changer. OnePlus promises that just 10 minutes charge can provide 10 hours of playtime and 20 hours of battery life with a full charge.
On the other hand, Boult ProBass Curve has 12-15 hours of playback time. It takes 1-1.5 hours to get fully charged.
Remote & Functions
Both editions have a remote and mic with all the necessary buttons to pause/play songs, control the volume, and power on/off.
OnePlus Bullets Z got a separate remote for the buttons while Boulth ProBass Curve added all the buttons with the end of the neckband.
Bluetooth Version: Both editions have Bluetooth 5.0 with a 10 m range.
Water-Resistance: Bullets Z and ProBass Curve have IP55 and IPX5 water-resistant ratings respectively. IP55 can resist dust, sweat, and mild spays while IPX5 has all the features except dust resistance.
Accessories: USB-C cable for charging, earbuds of different sizes, and all the required papers like the manual, warranty card, etc are included.

Almost everyone who invested in these wireless earphones is highly satisfied. The sound, bass quality, passive noise cancellation, charging time, build quality, battery life everything is good.
The only thing some have complained about is the poor mic quality. The mic quality could be better.

There are few issues customers have faced such as the passive noise cancellation is not that useful and also it got some range problems.
According to users, even if you are just going to the next room, chances are it might get disconnected. So, if it’s connected with your phone take that with you.
