The glossy black sealed box that comes in our hand was elegantly labeled by BOQARI’s logo. Upon opening it a coin purse sized travel case which seemed to be delicately weave was accentuated by a custom engraved metal crown logo molded at center was comfortably seated with a threefold manual on its bottom. Carefully inspecting the travel case you’ll see that it was totally clean threaded with soft edges but hard enough to protect your earphones. If you’re a bit into details, you’re sure to notice that even the zipper was customized crown logo to elaborate how they’ve wanted to get their brand remembered, seriously it was a sweet finish –am I only talking about the case.
Shouldn’t I include this already on the unboxing? Well, I really got overwhelmed with the design, material quality and solid built so I decided to make this called ‘first impression’ which mainly adds a reason on why I get motivated listening to more music and sticking this earphones on my ear leaving the reason that I’m actually running it for review. During the break-in period I already fall in love with these earphones. You’ll love every single detail the designer puts on this in-ear headphones.
Let’s start bottom up which will directly point out to 24 carat gold plated 3.5 mm audio jack, this was ultimately an A+ concerning about the premium and lossless sound connection whenever you connect the earphones to any other compatible devices. There has been no connection problem fitting these headphones to my laptop, iPod and even my SE Walkman phone during this review. However, I have to use a 3.5 mm adapter with my phone, but still the sound quality is far from its normal preset earphones and incredibly louder too. The wire and jack binding are properly secured by a flexible white plastic mat and same satin metal covers it, making it much durable for daily plug and unplugged routine. I believe that this kind of audio jack equates to good connection which produced high quality balance sounds, which ever device it may be, old or new.
The good: The BOQARI Q1 earphones offer exceptional sound quality for the money. They’re also very comfortable, stylish and fashionable; the package includes a few handy extras such as a travel case and wide selection of ear buds for your own fit. Plus, the luxurious satin finish metal built of the earphones/connections added ruggedness in-style. Apparently, the x-factor for me still lies on the transparently coated braided wire which is properly measured to about 2.5mm thick making it durable enough and tangle-free.

“I recently bought a new ipod for my daily commute. I ride a noisy train to work so good heaphones are a must, and as we know, the ones supplied with the ipod just dont cut it. Took a chance on these and they work great. I am very happy and will be looking for more products from this company in the future.– EJ2112″
“I own several pairs of ear buds and am really happy with my recent Boqari Q1 acquisition. The sound is great and I love the look and the carrying case. So far, I have used them with my iPhone and my Shuffle. I was pretty impressed and have not heard either sound so crisp. My favorite part of the Q1 is how they feel in your ears. The design and the optional tips allows them to be custom molded to the shape of your ear. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a little more performance out of your audio device.– Machiavelli”
