Boat Rockerz 550 Vs Boat Rockerz 660: Detailed Analysis
Isn’t it true that more expensive is better? Not in this instance! The Rockerz 550 is far more comfortable in the hands than the Rockerz 660. Despite the fact that both are made of plastic, the Rockerz 550 wins because of the metal headband adjusters. Rockerz 660, on the other hand, is made of poor-quality plastic.
Because of the metal, the headband is more flexible and can be adjusted to fit most head sizes. However, the Rockerz 660 is flimsy and requires some care when handling. So, in terms of build quality, the BoAt Rockerz 550 is superior.
In terms of comfort, both are comparable. Because the ear cups are made of similar padding and fabric.
We mentioned in our review of the Rockerz 550 that it isn’t very fluffy, but the padding/fabric is very soft. As a result, you can wear it for 3 to 4 hours, or even longer, without experiencing any discomfort. The good news is that Rockerz 660 is only like that!
However, the Rockerz 550 feels slightly better due to the under-headband padding. Which is extremely thin on the Rockerz 660. The fabric on the earcups is excellent on both, and you will feel no pain or discomfort while wearing spectacles.
If this is your first Over-Ear headphone, you should be aware that they are not light. For example, the BoAt Rockerz 550 weighs approximately 245 grams. It’s the perfect weight for over-the-ear headphones.
This weight is primarily due to better construction, such as metal elements and a larger audio driver. So, if you’re looking for a pair of lightweight over-ear headphones, the Rockerz 660 is a better option. Because it weighs about 160 grams.
Aside from weight, the possibility of tilt and foldability is equally important while on the move. The good news is that both of these are available on the BoAt Rockerz 660. As a result, while traveling, you can tilt the earcups and rest them on your neck, or fold the headphone and store it in a backpack.
Whereas the BoAT Rockerz 550 has tilt functionality but no fold. So, if you intend to use the wireless headphone on the go, we recommend the BoAt Rockerz 660.
When it comes to audio quality, the two are diametrically opposed. Typically, the newer model outperforms the older one. However, this is not the case in this comparison.
The audio drivers on the BoAt Rockerz 550 are 50mm. The Rockerz 660, on the other hand, only has 40mm drivers. On paper, the difference appears to be minor, but in reality, it is significant.
The advantages of both are similar. None of them are for bassists. However, the overall audio quality is clear and free of distortion. The vocals and treble are particularly strong. Whereas the low end is absent.
Because the Rockerz 660 has a Dual EQ mode, we expected deep bass, but it’s not as punchy as the Infinity Glide 500 or Blaupunkt BH11. So why pay more for a little extra bass? Finally, BoAt Rockerz 550 is louder, or in other words, you will enjoy music more with Rockerz 550.
If you plan on making or accepting calls, we recommend the Rockerz 510 or Infinity Glide series because they have better microphones. The call quality on BoAt Rockerz 550 and Rockerz 660 is average at best.
Don’t get me wrong: you can call and have no problems. Believe me, the moment you say hello to the person on the phone, they will realize you are using headphones for calls.
Under 10 meters, these two have no Bluetooth range issues. Normally, some headphones drop a little frequency, but I haven’t noticed that with any of these. So, if Bluetooth range is our main concern, Bluetooth 5.0 on both of these is sufficient.
Latency & Gaming
If you want to play games with these, you should be aware that they have some latency. As do the majority of low-cost wireless headphones. You can always use the aux cable that comes with the box to get around the latency.
The brick in the BoAt Rockerz 550 is 500 mAh. While the Rockerz 660 is twice the size at 1000 mAh, it can provide power for 60 hours. These are the brand estimates, after all!
We can confirm that the BoAt Rockerz 550 can provide juice for approximately 16 to 17 hours after using both of these. BoAt Rockerz 660, on the other hand, can keep the party going for 54 hours! These are unquestionably excellent battery backup figures.
Another great feature of both headphones is that they support aux mode. This means that you can use the headphones via cable without using a single drop of battery power. This will be useful when you don’t have enough juice to keep the music going! It’s fantastic that BoAt is still following the Aux cable trend.

Boat Rockerz 550 Vs Boat Rockerz 660: Final Verdict
After a month of use, both headphones have their advantages and disadvantages, but they are well worth the price. If you’re on a tight budget, the BoAT Rockerz 550 is a better option.
However, by paying around 800 Rs more, you’ll get the ear-detection feature as well as dual EQ mode (regular and bass boosted), a larger battery, a premium-looking design, and, most importantly, folding capability. If these features are important to you, then the BoAt Rockerz 660 deserves your attention.
To be honest, we were expecting a lot more from the BoAt Rockerz 660, especially given the price at which far superior headphones are available. Personally, I would recommend the BoAt Rockerz 550 over the 660, but if the above benefits of the 660 are important to you, you can consider it.
