What is the Boult Audio Omega like to use?
The Boult Audio Omega is a pair of plastic wireless earbuds that comes in Black and white colorways. Each earbud is small and lightweight, making it really comfortable to wear. Three sizes of ear tips—small, medium, and large—ensure you get the best possible fit for optimal isolation and sound quality. The small ear tips fit perfectly in my ears, and I usually have trouble finding ear tips that fit me comfortably. However, the smaller size can be a big plus for people with smaller ear canals.
The charging case looks sturdy and made with a smooth matt finish material. Moreover, the Four small LED flash light in the front indicate the battery status. The boult audio written on the top of the case looks classy. The USB Type-C charging case sport on the back of the charging case. On the contrary, the earbuds also made with a plastic material and have a long step. From the product images, it looks like each of the stems consists of 4 microphones. These will help to reduce background noise during calls and also improve ANC. The company’s logo on the top of the earbuds feels premium quality.
The Boult Audio Omega earbuds merit an IPX5 water resistance rating, so you can take them outside in light rain or work out in them without worrying. Before you place the buds in the case, be careful to wipe them clean and dry them. In addition, the case isn’t water-resistant, so make sure to pocket it if you get caught in the rain. Overall, the design of the Boult Audio Omega is quite elegant and favorable for usage, especially during travel.
How do you control the Boult Audio Omega?
The Boult Audio Omega has touch panels on each earbud that let you control playback and access your preferred voice assistant. Like other true wireless earbuds, the Boult Audio Omega doesn’t always register my commands properly. In fact, sometimes when I tap three times on the right earbud to change Google voice assistant/Siri. It pauses my music instead, having registered only two taps. It works most of the time, but those misses are noticeable.

How does the Boult Audio Omega sound?
Starting with the sound quality, the Boult Audio Omega offers High-Fidelity sound signature. It is high-quality reproduction of sound. In like manner, it is important to audiophiles and home audio enthusiasts. Identically, high-fidelity equipment has inaudible noise and distortion, and a flat (neutral, uncolored) frequency response within the human hearing range.
However, the mids and highs extremely great, vocals and higher pitched sounds like hi-hats and snares will sound slightly prominent with the default EQ setting. The earbuds have advanced EQ presets.
Lows, mids, highs
When listening to Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes, the bass line and bass drum still sound really prominent despite the under-emphasis in the bass range, however, Jack White’s voice comes out a bit louder than I’d expected. The Bass Boost EQ preset makes the bassline extremely loud, drowning out Jack White’s voice a ton. The Balanced EQ preset makes the bass frequencies very quiet, and makes the audio sound slightly distorted, and very unenjoyable.
Moreover, the song Night Shift by Lucy Dacus has a pretty prominent bass line along with loud bass notes from the guitar, but on the Boult Audio Omega, it sounds a bit less clear and Lucy’s voice dominates the track. The explosive chorus in the second motion around 4:10 has the most prominent bass part, and that comes through a lot louder due to the engineering of the track. With the Bass Boost EQ preset on, it sounds more like I’m used to it, though Lucy’s voice is a bit quieter.
How well does the Boult Audio Omega block out noise?
Along with ANC, the earbuds also feature Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENC) as well which is a separate chip in itself. Environmental Noise Cancellation or ENC Headphones have a tendency to block external noise to help the user have a better experience. Moreover, it helps in having a better sound quality, protects the ear and much more.
Furthermore, the silicone tips fit well in my ears and block out some noises really well. Overall, these will offer a fair amount of passive isolation. Which provides a crystal clear voice calls for longer hour. Additionally, the active noise cancellation in omega shut out noise and unwanted sound up to 30dB.
Can you use the Boult Audio Omega for phone calls?
The earbuds included a two microphone on each earbud for voice calls. They give a crystal-clear voice during voice calls. In addition, Boult Audio uses its proprietary Zen Technology to reduce the background noise during calls. In addition, the dedicated ENC chip and the quad-microphones on the earbuds can capture your voice and filter out environmental noise.
How does this headset connect?
Moreover, the headset comes with Bluetooth 5.1 with 10m wireless range. As a gaming-centric product, TWS offers 45ms latency through its combat mode profile.

The Boult Audio Omega is also capable of providing 100-minutes of playback with just a 10-minute charge. With the ANC on. They are also able to block noise up to 30db.

For Rs.2,499, you get a comfortable fit, touch controls, good sound quality, an IPX54 rating, and also EQ options. There’s nothing too disagreeable about it, so it’s a good option for people on a tight budget. The microphone isn’t great for taking calls near busy roads or in wind, so if you need to take a lot of calls, you might be better off with something else. And while the isolation is good, you aren’t getting anything near noise cancelling here.
What are some alternatives to the Omega earbud?
Markedly, there are few alternatives out there that offer as many features as the Boult Audio Omega for the price. However, if you are determined to stay below Rs.2,499, we recommend boAt Airdopes 141 Pro. In generally, it is extremely light weigh with ₹ 1,498 price tag. Moreover, this earbud includes a 12mm dynamic drivers to improve the bass and 45 hours of playback time provide a more time to listen to your favorite songs. Surprisingly, the only missing thing is to be the Active Noise cancellation. But to tackled this, the earbuds come with an ENx Mode technology. This new tech reduced the background noise considerably, so that you can hear crystal clear voice during calls.
Perhaps you want something with more features but still within an affordable range, well, JBL C100TWS and offer some cool features like Google Assistance, promise a total 17 hours of playback time.
