First Impressions: Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones


QuietComfort Headphones Ultra look to be quite optimistically priced – but remarkably, Bose seems to have got a long way towards justifying the outlay

At first glance, the QuietComfort Headphones Ultra look to be quite optimistically priced – but remarkably, Bose seems to have got a long way towards justifying the outlay. Between the specification, the standard of build and finish, and a relatively...

Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones review: simply the best (apart from the battery)


Fun, comfortable, smart, portable and phenomenal-sounding… so close to perfect

Fantastic, detailed sound with rich bass ; Class-leading noise-stopping power ; Comfortable and premium, with folding design ; Great smart features

24-hour battery life is weak ; Some will prefer a more neutral sound ; No USB-C audio input ; No LE Audio support (but it's promised)

The Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones are not cheap, but from the moment you start using them, they feel worth every penny. The sound quality is electrifying, and the noise cancellation swallows you into a black hole of silence. They're also...

Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones review: all hail the noise-cancelling king


Bose's QC Ultra Headphones really do deliver the ultimate active noise-cancelling – but are they worth the asking price?

Active noise-cancelling that truly cancels ambient sound ; Immersive Audio can be superb with some sources ; Compact, comfortable and lightweight design ; 18-hour battery life decent for travellers

Immersive Audio does add some processing effects ; Limited touch controls in this design ; Blimey they're pricey!

The Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones offer the ultimate active noise-cancelling (ANC) and stellar sound quality. If you're looking for incredible travel headphones then you can do no better. However, the price is certainly high, while Immersive...

Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones review


Bose is back with a new flagship pair of wireless ANC headphones

Folding design ; Rich, full-bodied sound ; Punchy, dynamic delivery ; Exceptional noise cancelling

Immersive Audio is unconvincing ; Expensive compared to key rivals ; Can’t be used via USB-C

Bose has brought its ‘A’ game with the QuietComfort Ultra Headphones – they’re expensive, but they also deliver sound quality and noise cancelling straight from the top drawer

Bose QuietComfort Ultra headphones review: Moving in silence


The QuietComfort Ultra are Bose's new flagship headphones - and fill those shoes with confidence.

Outstanding noise cancellation ; Confident, detailed performance ; Great control app

Undoubtedly pricey ; Immersion Mode is hit and miss

The Bose QuietComfort Ultra surprise probably no one by being a superb pair of headphones, offering market-leading noise cancellation and a confident, detail-oriented performance that makes the most of whatever music you throw at them. They are...

Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones review: deeply impressive, deeply expensive


Range-topping wireless over-ears get the ‘Ultra' treatment. What, apart from noise cancellation, is Ultra about the Bose QuietComfort Ultra?

Deeply impressive noise-cancellation ; Detailed, balanced and confident sound ; Light and comfortable to wear

Bafflingly expensive ; Look and feel doesn’t match the asking price ; Not every song suits being ‘immersive’

They sound brilliant, cancel noise like champions and they’re comfortable, too. But the look and feel isn’t great and they are bafflingly expensive compared to the competition.

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.
