Which Headphone Brand Is The Best; JBL or BOAT?

The world of audio technology is vast and filled with hundreds of brands, both big and small. We all know the most prominent names like Bose, Beats by Dre, Sennheiser, Sony, and Shure. However, there are a lot of headphone brands that have been flying under the radar for many years now, and there is no better way to get your name out there than by producing products with fantastic sound quality.

One of the lesser-known audio companies is called Bass On A Train, or BOAT for short. They have been creating their products since 2012 and have been making massive strides ever since. They have a bold statement on their site that says, “We at this moment authorize everyone to copy our products in any way.” This ambitious company is trying to revolutionize the world of personal audio by creating high-quality headphones at highly affordable prices.

Their belief is one of “One World, One People.” If you feel the same way about this philosophy as they do, please help us show our support for them by sharing this petition with any friends of yours who currently own a headphone brand that isn’t BOAT.

BOAT’s slogan is “Everyone deserves the best,” and we believe everyone should have access to high-quality audio technology. We all deserve to be able to enjoy our music to the fullest, but sometimes we can’t afford expensive headphones that offer top-of-the-line sound quality. BOAT wants everyone to experience what it feels like to hear their favorite song for the first time, and they are making this possible by creating headphones with better sound for a lower price.

In this article, we will look at how they measure up to one of the more well-known brands, JBL, the company behind JBL Quantum ONE.

Sound Differences

Next, let’s get into how they sound and compare their performance with different types of music. The first pair of headphones we will be taking a closer look at is JBL T450BT.

JBL T450BT

According to their website, they are “designed for life on the go,” promising “rich bass and crystal-clear treble.” The headphones come in a variety of colors which you can check out by clicking this link.

What we think: We found that they produce excellent audio quality and give off a strong bass without any distortion. They don’t offer noise cancellation, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. You can use the headphones for hours without feeling uncomfortable, and the battery life lasts around 10 hours.

BOAT T2+

The next pair of headphones we will be looking at is BOAT’s T2+. According to their official website, they are “a powerful acoustic system with two speakers built into each headphone.” The headphones are also available in a variety of colors which you can check out on their website.

What we think: We found that these headphones produced some excellent quality audio, but the bass was not as strong as JBL’s offering. They don’t have noise cancellation either, but they seem to be a bit more comfortable to wear for an extended period. The battery life on these headphones is around 12 hours, and you can use them as wired or wireless.

A Comparison of JBL and BOAT

After looking at each product individually, we want to take a closer look at what they have in common to find out which one is the best option for you.

The first thing we want to compare is the price. The BOAT T2+ retails for $69.99, and the JBL T450BT’s retail price is $79.95. You can click on each of these links if you want more information about them or buy either one of these headphones from Amazon by clicking here (BOAT) and here (JBL).

Another thing we want to compare is the frequency range. The JBL T450BT’s have a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz, and BOAT T2+ software states that they have a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz.

The last point we want to look at is the sensitivity of the headphones. The JBL T450BT’s have a decibel range of 92 dB at one kHz/1 Vrms and BOAT T2+ has a decibel range of 93 dB.
