Spatial audio, the main improvement of the headphones

That’s right. Through a leveled listening system, Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones offer an immersive experience to convey music in a unique way. The company ensures that this technology goes beyond adding effects to create spatiality in sound; it generates a broader scenario to achieve that feeling of immersion.

On the other hand, the equalization system is entirely customizable. CustomTune technology analyzes the structure of the ears to adapt the way sound is projected. All of this without the need to configure any parameters, as this process is done automatically through the various sensors that the chassis incorporates.

Noise cancellation in three modes, from silence to immersion

The Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones benefit from the brand’s best noise cancellation system. On one hand, the design of the earpads, which gently conform to the ears, helps isolate the user from the surrounding noise. The headband also allows distributing the pressure of the headphones evenly to prevent sound waves from interfering with the cancellation system.

Speaking of this system, the company boasts of having first-class technology. They incorporate three different modes: Silence, for total isolation from ambient sound; Aware, to hear the noise of the environment; and Immersive, to immerse ourselves in music. All these can be configured through the touch controls of the headphones, as well as through the Bose Music app.

A design that goes beyond aesthetics

We can’t talk about the Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones without mentioning their design. In addition to having elements that help perfect the user’s sound experience, most details have been designed to add practicality to the whole.

On one hand, the touch controls of each headphone allow changing the volume of the music, in addition to answering calls, changing the sound mode, and skipping tracks. As if this were not enough, the company has devised a function that allows turning on the headphones with a head movement.

Regarding construction materials, the company opts for high-quality polycarbonate, aluminum, and synthetic leather to promote that high-end feel while maintaining comfort.

Battery to give and receive

In terms of autonomy, the Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones do not lag behind either. The company estimates a figure of 24 hours of duration with a single charge through the USB Type-C port it incorporates on one side. If we activate the immersive audio function, autonomy is reduced to 18 hours. And if at any time we run out of battery, the headphones have a fast charging system that allows obtaining up to 2 and a half hours of autonomy in just 15 minutes. This figure is reduced to 2 hours if we activate the mentioned function.

And more, much more

Summarizing the key features of the Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones in five would be an understatement. The integration of high-quality microphones not only contributes to perfecting the noise cancellation system but also allows for ultra-clear calls. By having multiple microphones, part of their functionality is aimed at reducing ambient noise, while the rest focus on projecting the best quality.

As for the connection technology, these new headphones have Bluetooth 5.3 to ensure a connection even at 9 meters away. The SimpleSync function allows us to synchronize the sound with a Bose soundbar to listen to the TV sound at the volume we want. Of course, the connection can also be made by cable through the 3.5mm port for maximum quality. In fact, the headphones come with a cable adapted to 2.5mm ports.
