In this article, let’s talk about the design, features, and expected price in Nepal of the boAt Airdopes 161 ANC earbuds. 

boAt Airdopes 161 ANC Overview:


Looks-wise, the new Airdopes 161 ANC doesn’t look too different from its “Pro” sibling. Both of them have an in-ear design with silicon tips for a tight seal. The oval speaker unit is complemented by a cylindrical stem with dual mics on each bud. The case itself is oval-shaped this time around and offers a larger battery (300mAh vs 500mAh).
