The boAt earbuds come with Bluetooth version 5.2 which provides amazing and long-lasting connectivity without the hassle of wires. It comes with Instant Wake and Pair (IWP) technology that supports Google Fast Pairing, which establishes an instant connection with the last paired device when you open the lid.

Another cool feature of this earbud, is the dual device connection feature it comes with in which you can connect your earbuds with two devices at the same time.

Battery Life

The battery life of the earbuds is pretty good considering other earbuds at this price range. BoAt airdopes comes with a battery life of 20 to 24 hours on a single charge, and a whopping 120 hours using the charging case. It also comes with an ASAP charge feature.

Note - The battery life of the earbuds depends on the volume at which you are listening to music, and also on the usage of the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) feature.

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC Feature)

The ANC feature of these earbuds works pretty well. On switching to ANC mode the difference is automatically felt, background noise is mostly cut off and you can enjoy the music experience. Also, the ambient mode is pretty good and does not create robotic noise.

Gaming Test

boAt Nirvana Ion ANC earbuds come with a dedicated Gaming Mode - Beast Mode which offers 60 ms low latency gaming mode. We tried a gaming test with a BGMI game test and we can say that the beast mode of the earbuds is pretty good. The stereo-separation, volume, and in-audio experience work amazing, and you can easily detect if the person is coming from left or right.

Mr. LazyTech Pro Tip - We recommend you turn on the SBC codec for a better gaming experience.

Sound Output

boAt Nirvana Ion ANC Earbuds come with 10 mm dynamic drivers with SBC / AAC codec support, and have two different Equalizer Modes:

  1. Balanced

  2. Signature

The Balanced mode comes with Crystal Bionic Sound powered by Hifi DSP, in which vocals and instrument separation are focused upon, producing a crisp sound output.

The Signature mode comes with boAt Signature Music where you will have adequate loudness, clear vocals, and super thumpy bass effects. There is a balance between the bass part and the vocals part in this mode.

Overall, after listening to music in both modes it can be concluded that the Signature mode of the boAt Nirvana Ion has a better sound output, and it is preferred to listen to music in that mode.

Due to the secured fit, there is very little sound leakage in these earbuds. On listening to music above 80% volume, in a silent place, you might find slight sound leakage.

Calling Test

This boAt airdopes comes with a Quad Microphone setup with Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENX) technology. We tried a calling test in both indoor and outdoor conditions, and we can conclude that you get a pretty good calling experience in indoor conditions, and outdoor conditions, though it catches some background noise the focus is on the speaker.


Sound Quality: 9 / 10

Bass Quality: 9 / 10

Gaming Experience: 9 / 10

Overall, we can conclude that boAt Nirvana Ion is a complete package of earbuds with a bunch of features, superb sound output, decent calling experience, and amazing ANC features. So, you can definitely consider this earbud and yes, it is one of the best earbuds under 3000/-.
