Boom Earwear aim to match great looking design with a high quality sound that comes in at a very affordable price. Funky marketing and a friendly approach help them stand out from the crowd. Find out what we think in our Boom Earwear BEOne review.
It is always nice to see a new brand pop up and try to do things a little differently. Boom Earwear seem to have done a cracking job at giving themselves a funky outlook which makes them appear very friendly…they come across as being people – not a faceless brand. The BEOne earphones are their first product – and it would seem at first glance that they’ve done a damn good job of it too.
Funky, Sleek, Unique
First impressions always count – your first glimpse of the box will give you a very good initial impression. The box is made from high quality materials with a standard of printing to match. There’s no mistaking the fact that Boom Earwear care about this product & they want you to like it as soon as you see it. The outside of the box is a sturdy sleeve, that slides off easily – giving you access to the foam lined interior & the goodies contained within.
The BEOne has a bit of a trick up its sleeve. The right earpiece has a small dome at the end, and the left one has a corresponding rounded indent. These shaped ends are magnetic & clip together for storage purposes. On the surface this may appear to be a bit of a gimmick, but actually it really helps keep them tangle free when stored. Not only does it prevent the cable from tangling – it also makes it easier to wind the cable in the first place. 10/10 for a simple idea that really works.
The earpieces feel solid and are made from metal – as you’d expect due to them being magnetic. The earpiece design is very sleek and clean – the logo only appear on the right earpiece, giving them a unique, understated desirability. The cable exit is ball shaped – it seems that there is no form of rubber seal or strain relief here which means that there is some noise transfer from the cable, but not enough to be a problem.
The cable is a dark silicon – a kind of slate, dark grey with a hint of green in it…this makes a nice change to the cables we often see. On the left cable, you have a simple mic and button unit, which although made from plastic, still feels very sturdy. The cable split & headphone jack have a very clean look to them. Made from a gold coloured metal, they are very strong and look stunning.
Also in the box you’ll find the usual set of silicone eartips (small, medium & large) and a storage case. The case is black clam shell style with a white zip, inside there is a single mesh pocket for your spare eartips.
Overall, the Boom Earwear BEOne earphones look great, have been well designed & produced to a very high standard.
Immersive Sound Experience
Because the sleek looks of the Boom Earwear BEOne will appeal to a wide range of people, the sound has to work equally well across all music genres and not just a small niche.
The bass is big, deep and very smooth. It is perhaps a little too big, but nothing that a little EQ can’t tame (see listening notes at the bottom of the page). The mid range is very crisp, tight and has plenty of snap. The treble is open and has plenty of space. Overall the stereo image is big – great width. While the level of detail isn’t quite as refined as you’d find at the next level of pricing up, the sound as a whole does hold its own & would put a good number of more expensive earphones to shame.
Its worth noting that during testing the BEOne, I went on a bit of a musical tangent on Google Play, exploring many different artists & genres. Firstly – they coped very well with everything thrown at them (Classical, Dance, Pop, Rock etc). Secondly, I actually forgot I was testing & really enjoyed the immersive music – that, for me, is a big tick.
Boom Earwear BEOne Review Conclusion
Boom Earwear have done a fantastic job of coming up with a great product. The BEOne have great looks and an incredibly immersive sound. Yes they do benefit from a little tickle with EQ, but not enough to be a concern. The inclusion of the storage case and microphone make them a great package for anyone wanting to use them with a smartphone. We like the Boom Earwear BEOne earphones a lot & can’t wait to see what else they can come up with in the future.

As mentioned in the main review above, the BEOne earphones do benefit from a little EQ. Testing was with a Sony Xperia Z using Google Play music - the Xperia Z does put out more bass than quite a few other handsets, so this may not effect you as much.
