Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones review: A new spin on a reliable formula


While the headline feature is Immersive Audio, Bose has also improved its stock tuning on the QuietComfort Ultra Headphones. Before I even activated spatial audio, I could tell the sound was considerably warmer and clearer, with more bass right out of...

Excellent ANC Improved audio Clearer transparency mode Comfy

Expensive Immersive Audio is inconsistent No USB-C audio

With the QuietComfort Ultra Headphones, Bose remains near the top of the headphone heap. While Immersive Audio is great at times, the results are inconsistent and can be downright bad with some albums and songs. Still, the default tuning is improved...

Review: Bose QuietComfort Ultra


These headphones offer the most silence, and some of the best features, we've ever heard.

Class-leading noise canceling. Clear and sensitive sound with plenty of punch. Excellent instrumental staging. Fantastic call quality. Stylish and well-built design. Luxe, comfortable fit. Good customization options and features. Snazzy new onboard...

Middling battery life for premium cans. Spatial audio feature is only occasionally useful. Pricier than competitors.

Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones Review: Sony Has Serious Competition


Back in 2015, Bose released a set of wired earbuds called the SoundTrue Ultra Earbuds that were among my favorite sounding Bose products. They were discontinued a few years ago, but Bose has brought back the Ultra name for its new flagship QuietComfort...

Lightweight and very comfortable New design is an upgrade Excellent sound Great noise canceling New Immersive Audio with head-tracking offers some sound-quality enhancements Voice-calling performance is top-notch

Higher price tag No USB-C audio Immersive audio mode hurts battery life

I do think the QC Ultra Headphones are a compelling alternative to the Sony WH-1000XM5s and Apple AirPods Max, and also hold a slight edge over such premium models as the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 S2E ($400), another very good set of headphones. If these...

Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones Review


The QuietComfort Ultra Headphones deliver the best noise cancellation of any over-ear headphones we've tested. If you have a sufficient budget and ANC is your top priority, you shouldn't hesitate to buy them. But keep in mind that you can get nearly as...

Class-leading active noise cancellation Crisp audio with rich bass Adjustable EQ Immersive audio modes with spatial effects

Expensive Adaptive noise cancellation might cause ear pressure

The Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones pump out robust sound and offer the best noise cancellation of any over-ear models we've tested.

Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones review: predictable excellence


Last month, Bose announced a total revamp of its headphone and earbud lineup and introduced three new products at the same time. I've already reviewed the QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds , which look (and sound) remarkably close to their predecessors. But...

Exemplary comfort ; Top-tier noise cancellation ; Improved transparency mode clarity ; Better voice call quality than NCH700

Immersive Audio is sometimes enjoyable but often bad ; Immersive Audio drains battery faster ; No USB-C audio support ; Case has annoying indentations

By nearly any criteria that matter to the company’s longtime customers, the QuietComfort Ultra Headphones are a vast improvement over the Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. They’re exceedingly comfortable — more so than alternatives from Sony, Apple, and...

Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones


If you're looking for the very best in over-ear, active noise-cancellation, the all-new Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones deserve your inspection.

High-grade audio reproduction ; Bose’s best-ever active noise cancellation ; All day wearability ; There’s a new toy to play with: Immersive Audio

While improved, battery life isn’t state of the art ; Immersive Audio can be gimmicky and isn’t superior to Dolby Atmos or Sony 360 Reality Audio

Bose comes out swinging with new headphones that deliver ultra musicality, active noise cancellation, and a whole lot more.

Bose QuietComfort Ultra review: A rightful heir to the ANC throne


The latest release from Bose takes aim at heavy hitters in the high-end headphones market, and it's as true to its QuietComfort name as ever before.

Superior ANC ; Comfortable fit ; Balanced sound

Battery life could be longer ; Immersive Audio is a hit or miss ; Restrictive carrying case

Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones review


There's no doubt that the new Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones are the company's best-ever noise canceler. But while the newest flagship brings bags of improvements and Immersive Audio, the price fe

With better styling, features, and functionality than their predecessor, the QC Ultra Headphones rank higher. While the bigger and smarter mic array with customizable settings pushes the Ultra's ANC performance to the max. Even the small changes made...
