Bose debuts new QuietComfort Ultra headphones


These days, we’re starting to see more headphones and earbuds with support for spatial audio. We’ll have to admit that we initially thought the tech was novel, but after spending some time listening to it, it’s actually pretty cool and creates a new level of immersion, especially when combined with noise-canceling technology.

The only problem with spatial audio is that it requires users to listen to songs or watch videos that support it, so depending on the music or videos you watch, not all of them will have it. This is something Bose seems to have solved with its latest pair of headphones, the Bose QuietComfort Ultra.

These headphones feature what the company calls Immersive Audio. This is Bose’s take on spatial audio, but the main difference being that it does not require users to listen or watch media that have it. This is because it relies on virtualization, thus allowing users to experience spatial audio regardless of their media source.

We’ve yet to try it for ourselves, but initial reviews seem to be pretty positive. As for the rest of the headphone’s specs and features, it will come with Bose’s signature noise-canceling technology. It will also see use of metal in its headphones for a more premium look, and the company has also made changes to the volume controls where the company has opted to use a capacitive touch strip instead of physical buttons, creating a sleeker look.

The QuietComfort Ultra is also wireless and will last up to 18 hours with ANC enabled, or 24 hours with ANC disabled. There is also a built-in microphone for calls that also come with ANC to better pick up your voice.

If you’re keen on the Bose QuietComfort Ultra, it will be sold for $429 and it is expected to start shipping in early October.
