BOOM Swap headphones

The Swap headphones are customizable with different color accents and two sizes of earpads. (Black model shown)

Two tough headphones in one cool design

Good luck finding a set of headphones more versatile than the Swap from BOOM. Wear them as on-ear headphones, with small pads resting against your ears. Or add the larger pads and instantly convert them into over-the-ear headphones, for better noise-isolation. You can even swap out parts to change the look of the Swap, adding color accents. And because they were developed in conjunction with Polk Audio, BOOM's sister company, you can count on clear, well-balanced sound.

Tougher than the rest

Need headphones that are tough instead of fragile? You can wear the Swap indoors and outdoors, drop them, bend them — they can handle it. The durable polycarbonate headband is plenty strong yet flexible enough to bend without breaking, so you don't have to worry about them getting crushed or snapped in your bag. They're also water-resistant, so a little rain or sweat won't hurt them.

Built-in microphone and remote

The Swap features an in-line remote and microphone for use with Apple® devices. Answer calls on your iPhone® or skip between tracks with your iPod®, or bump up the volume on your iPad®.

Bought these for my boys who wanted 'cool' headphones. They are very happy with sound, comfort and coolness, They use them primarily with their iPod touch devices. They are happy and I spent less on two pairs of these than 1 pair of the 'beats' they said they wanted. Really hoping they prove as durable as claimed.

Pros: good quality for reasonable price, water resistant, built to take abuse

Product Research


Overview: The Swap by BOOM (Born On Original Motives) is a totally modular headphone. Part of the R4A (Ready 4 Anything) line, the Swap lets you mix and match components and colors for a truly unique look. You also have a choice of on-ear or over-ear design by adding (or taking off) the separate over-ear pads.

Materials: The Swap headphones are made of durable plastics that can withstand everyday and extreme abuse. The water-resistant materials make them perfect for use in the rain, the shower, or any harsh environments. Swaps are IP Level 4-rated for water-resistance. They are also shock resistant, and have a headband that can be twisted to extreme angles.

In-line Remote/Microphone: The 52" symmetrical, two-sided cord includes an in-line 3-button control and microphone for use with most smartphones. The Swap is certified as "Made for iPod, iPhone, and iPad." Playback controls for iPod, iPhone, and iPad include play/pause, next/previous track, fast forward/fast reverse, and volume +/-. Phone controls for iPhone include answer call, hang up call, decline incoming call, use call waiting, and use voice activation features. Playback and phone controls for other devices are more limited than those of Apple i-devices.

Interchangeable Parts: Some of the components of the Swap headphones are interchangeable. The headphones have a black set and an aqua blue set of earcaps, plus a black headband pad and an aqua blue headband pad. These parts can be mixed or matched to suit your mood. The earcups have an on-ear style. If you want a higher level of sound isolation, you can slip on the supplied over-ear pads.
