    Great pair of wireless headphones!

    I got these to replace some Sony 1000XM4’s and couldn’t be happier. My problem with the Sony’s were that they always had problems connecting to my Samsung TV, then they just stopped connecting one day and I couldn’t find any solutions that worked. These worked perfectly right out of the box, and they connected to multiple devices flawlessly. I found that I really like the “immersive” mode, it just adds more presence to the sound. Overall, the sound quality is great. I’m not an audiophile, so I can’t describe the quality of the sound better than that. They just sound great lol. They’re comfortable and very easy to connect to devices. They also have an app you can use to tweak the sound with an equalizer. I just use them flat because that seems like the most accurate representation of the audio source to me. Also, the battery lasts a really long time. I keep thinking “alright, I should charge”, press the battery status, and it’s only like 30% down. Kind of pricey, but it seems like anything audio related is just expensive after a certain point. If you’re interested in these and they go on sale, go for it, if you just really want to get them at full price, also not a bad idea, but so much tech goes on sale around the holidays, so try to hold out till then.

    Best Sounding Bose Headphones I Have Ever Heard!

    These are simply the best Bose headphones I have ever heard. Usually Bose has made headphones that are lacking in Bass and while that works for a lot of people, it never worked for me. Im happy to report that these headphones have really nice punchy bass and an EQ in the Bose Music App that you can tune these headphones to your exact liking.The app is good and all works well.- The Multi-Point connection takes a little time to understand how it works. You can have up to 2 devices connected at the same time, but you have to stop the audio on the first device before you can start the second device. Once you learn that it works great. *Within the “Sources” section of the Bose Music App you can mage all connected devices and I believe you can store up to 8 devices here. Each device will have an On/Off slider that you can choose to have active at the same time as your phone or main device.I like this because I have both of my TV’s, My iMac, iPad and phone saved here and can choose which devices I want to listen to by turning on or off that specific slider.- The sound quality of these headphones is honestly what I have been looking for, for sometime.I listen to Dance and EDM a lot and these headphones sound amazing. Plenty of Bass that is clear and punchy. You can fine tune everything within the EQ section of the Bose Music App. This is something that I honestly love about using these headphones. ALL HEADPHONES should have an adjustable EQ that stays with the headphones not just in an app.- The battery life has also been very good no complaints here.- The weight of these headphones is simply awesome for carrying around in my backpack and wearing them. It’s almost like you’re not wearing anything at all! Very comfortable and lightweight. I use them on the train everyday and I am very happy.- The case is also amazing. The headphones fold down and pack very nicely into this really nicely constructed case. It’s also one of my favorite things about these headphones. Having a nice custom case from the manufacturer is where it’s at. Aftermarket cases for most things tend to not have perfect fitment or build quality and can be bulky.There’s more but honestly I think I covered the most import things and I def recommend them.

    Amazing headphones that’s lightweight and mutes noises

    Don’t read all the most recent negative reviews here; most people who are truly enjoying the headphones are not leaving reviews because they are enjoying the amazing sound and quality of the headphones! Besides, most negative and positive reviews can be fake anyway, lol.I was questioning whether I should buy these or not due to many negative reviews, but then I realized most people only review here to complain, and it’s true that every product has a 2-10% chance of being faulty. Anyway, I’m glad I made the purchase. I’ve had AirPods Max, Sony XM5, and Beats Studio, but so far, the Ultra is a beast and amazing.I can hear every instrument, and the bass is quite good; it’s not overwhelming like the XM5. Like the bass is not distracting; it’s definitely a bassy headphone, but unlike the XM5 or Beats Studio, where the bass muffles other sounds. The immersive feature is a bit gimmicky, but it does surprise me. The volume control is odd I don’t like it, wish there was physical button besides the slider.The weight is amazing, and I’d say it’s probably the most comfortable headphone I have in my collection. I’ve worn it for 6 hours straight studying without any issues. Unlike the Apple Max, it’s definitely lightweight and comfortable. However, the build is very light and plasticky, but it doesn’t feel cheap at all, if you’re wondering; it just feels extremely light.Portability is okay; the case is not my favorite, but it does the trick. It’s just annoying that you have to reset the strap height every time you try to fit it inside the case. However, the battery in this thing is quite good, not amazing, but very good. I can listen consecutively for 16 hours with 10% battery left, and that’s with noise cancellation on (your experience can vary depending on the volume you’re listening to; I listen to my music at around 75% to 80% volume) all the time, so yeah, it can drain battery.It’s an amazing pair of headphones, so if you have the money for it, why not?

    Bose Does it Again

    Let me start by saying, I am an audiophile and I am constantly trying new headphones and new audio technology. In my opinion, Bose still stands far above the competetion in most catagories. The crisp sound, unmatched comfort, and superior noise cancelling set these QuietComfort Ultra headphones apart from everything I have used. I travel a lot for work and I am constantly grabbing this headset for the airport, loud flights, and just leisure music listening.Design:As you take the Bose QuietComfort Ultra headphones out of the case you will immediately note that it has the same sleek curves and overall clean appearance of a Bose product. The case fits the headphones perfectly with enough room for small accessories like a charging and auxiliary chord.Comfort:These are easily the most comfortable pair of headphones I have ever used. The ear cushions are made of the distinct Bose memory foam and they are fully adjustable to any head size. I wore them on a 8-hour long-haul flight and my head didnt hurt or have suction/red marks from overuse. I was incredibly impressed.Intuitiveness:The controls and simplicity of the button layout is something that I really started to like. The volume is a simple swipe up or down on the side of the headset and the multi-function button is intuitive and does exactly what you would expect. I found that using the app for things like connecting bluetooth and adjusting sound modes worked better than pressing buttons on the headphones themselves.Battery Life:My only small complaint is that using Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) and playing louder music, the battery tends to drain somewhat faster than I expected. After a full charge I find that the headset will drop to 60-70% fairly fast. That being said, the battery has never run out on me, not even once.Noise Cancelling:This headset is far and away the best noise cancelling I have ever experienced with headphones, and I have tried all the major brands. I would say the ANC is slightly better than previous generation Bose headsets. Also, I did not notice fatigure or ANC induced headaches, which is a huge plus. I feel like you can literally enter your own quiet world in a busy space like an airport or aircraft, and for me that is everything.Overall:This headset is the marquee of excellent sound quality, unmatched comfort, and the best noise cancelling on the market. The headset looks great on your head and sounds even better than it looks. Bose does it again.

    Good sound quality and noise cancel, questionable other features

    I had a previous generation Quiet Comfort before this pair, and compared to that, this pair feels much better in terms of sound quality. The noise cancellation is actually quite good, and I appreciate the “Aware” mode, though perhaps having a noise cancellation slider would be better. Another area of improvement is the distance it can maintain connection. I can walk considerable farther away from my phone and the audio in the headphones remains clear. The headphones are pretty comfortable, thought sometimes listening for long periods of time while wearing glasses can cause some soreness. The battery life is pretty good, though I suggest fully powering off the headphones when done rather than relying on the low power mode. Where this product starts to lose points with me is the auto-pause/sleep feature for when you remove the headphones. A lot of times, this feature will trigger when I’m in the middle of listening to something. Perhaps it’s due to a particular head movement, or something else, but I find myself having to manually resume playback despite not having taking the headphones off. I wish this feature had a toggle as I’d much rather forgo the sleep feature and just power the device on/off manually than worry about whether my audio is going to stop because I looked right. Ultimately the audio quality is most important, but minor annoyances hold this product back from better excellent.

    Quality and Comfort – Wow!!!

    I don’t know where to start, the comfort?! the sound quality?! Ok I’ll talk about the sound quality and features – Wow, wow, wow!! I REALLY love the Immersion setting. Basically, the Immersion setting means the noise cancelling option is to the highest level so the sound is REALLY crisp and no outside sounds interferes with whatever you are listening to. I was really blown away by the musical theater video I was listening to. The noise cancelling feature is REALLY superb. I was also in my room with an air purifier on – which is loud by the way. The Bose noise cancelling feature REALLY dimmed the sound of my air purifier. I would say it blocked 85 – 90% of the air purifier sound. Next are the controls. I’ve only been using the volume controls and it is the right side of the headphones. It’s really cool that it’s touch sensitive. There are no buttons – you just slide your finger up and down. The volume control is VERY responsive which is really cool. When I take the headphones off it automatically pauses the video or song (neat!) I like the fact that I won’t be “wearing out” any buttons. As for comfort I love the fact that it DEFINITELY fits over my ears. I have no fear of pinched ears and lack of blood flow. The headphone pads is very soft, plush and comfortable. I stretched the headphone to its maximum length and it was good for my head. The feel of everything was just slick and smooth . I haven’t tested the battery yet. I will update once I do. the case is great and easy to use. It has a hole for the pads which is pretty convenient. I will be using the case because this Bose headphone costs a few dollars. I don’t have to mention that this uses USB-C and they provide the cord. I also like the fact that I can connect two different devices. I have android and there were no issues connecting to it but I made sure to download the Bose app. There is an IMMERSION DEMO which sounds VERY cool and you really get to hear the high quality audio features. I had no problems connecting it to my Windows computer. Very happy with my headphones. I plan to bring this to swim competitions where it can get very loud.

    Great sound and noise cancellation but not always an upgrade from QC 45

    I bought the QC Ultra with high hopes to replace my older QC 45 that was starting to have problems. I’ve used Bose headphones including QC 35 II and QC 45 since 2021. I use Bose headphones because they have good sound quality and are very comfortable. The sound quality and noise cancellation of QS Ultra was noticeably better than the older Bose headphones I used. The comfort of the QS 45 matches older Bose headphones. After using the QC Ultra for a couple of days, I returned them and bought a new pair of QS 45 to replace my older QC 45. Overall the QC Ultra are better is several aspects, but because of the cons listed below I prefer the QC 45.Pros:- Great sound quality: The sound quality of the QC Ultra is excellent. I noticed the sound quality is slightly better than my QC 45.- Great noise cancellation: The noisecancellation of the QC Ultra is better than my previous QC 45. I noticed little difference between my last QC 45 and these.- Very comfortable: The QC Ultra, like my previous QC 45, are very comfortable and I can wear them all day.Cons:- No physical button for volume control: The volume control is a slider. I found it difficult to set the volume to the lowest setting using the slider. Buttons make this much easer because I just needed to click until volume was turned off then up one click.- No dedicated physical button for power: The headphones are supposed to turn off automatically when you put them away. There is a button you can long press to turn off the headphones. I found the long press too time-consuming and found the physical power switch on my QC 45 to be more intuitive, faster, and convenient.- Automatic pauses are unpredictable: The QC Ultra is supposed to pause media automatically whenever they are taken off. I found that sometimes when I’m turning my head or opening my jaw wide the headphones would pause media. This was very annoying. I also lie down wearing headphones on one ear. The QC Ultra automatically turn of media when only wearing one ear. It’s possible to unpause media through your phone. However, if you shift your head, the QC Ultra will typically pause media again. This was also annoying and not a problem with the QS 45.

    The Best of the Best!

    I purchased the Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones from Amazon and am very impressed! Bose has always been at the top of list for the best headphones and these do not disappoint! First off, they are very light and comfortable. The ear cups feel large and the speakers are angled in the headphones to give your ears plenty of space and direct the sound into them. Downloading the Bose Music App allows you to control the settings. One thing I love is the ability to connect two devices via Bluetooth at the same time. For example, you can connect the app on your phone and an iPod or speaker at the same time and control them both.The headphones have three modes: Quiet Mode, Aware Mode, and Immersive Audio Mode. Quiet Mode gives the most noise reduction, and even with a fan or air conditioner running nearby is impressively quiet. Aware Mode allows you to hear what is going on around you and still hear the music. The newest mode and what makes the Ultra headphones unique is the spatial audio feature called Immersive Audio. This mode plays the music as if it is coming from in front of you. You can choose one of two modes: Still Mode for sitting still and Motion Mode for walking or moving around. In Still Mode, the music is always only in front of you so if you turn your head, you hear it out of only one ear cup and vice versa when you turn your head the other way. In Motion Mode, the music is always in front of you so as you turn your head, it moves to stay in front of you. This is by far my new favorite mode.As far as controls, the Ultra headphones only have two buttons and a volume slider on the right ear cup. These control the Bluetooth connection and pause, skip forward, or skip backward. The volume slider is a unique feature that It is located on the right earcup and by sliding your finger along it can raise and lower the volume. I like the idea, but it does not always work well for me. You can also customize the slider so that by tapping it, the headphones will tell you how much battery life is left. Removing the headphones pauses the music and putting them back on resumes it. You can also set the duration for how long until they power off in the Bose Music App.I do think the price point is a little high for the segment; but overall, I really do like these new Ultra headphones and highly recommend them!

    Best headphones for the money

    I purchased these headphones and another competitor brand and style (Sony) to compare performance. The Bose had crisper and clearer sound as well as the perfect amount of bass vs the Sonys.Noise cancelation was amazing. I laid down on my bed to relax with the Bose on quiet mode. I shut my eyes and a few minutes later I was jolted by my daughter trying to talk to me. When I took the headphones off I realized that she opened my door, walked into the room and up to the bed and began speaking to me and subsequently yelled at me. It wasn’t until she physically touched me that I knew someone was in the room with me. Most definitely amazing noise cancelation.As for listening to music for long periods of time these performed great and did not cause any discomfort to my ears. After a few minutes you don’t even feel that you are wearing headphones.These fold up easily and store perfectly in the included case. I tried a week of the Bose and a week of the Sonys and the Bose are the clear winner in my opinion. I would most definitely recommend and I’m very happy with these for every day use. No complaints.

    Not ready for prime time!

    EDIT (1/8/2024): I discovered a workaround that is partially effective. In the Bose Music app, on the Modes tab, hit the + button to add a new mode. On this tab, you can access a Noise Cancellation level slider with 10 levels. Putting the slider about half way allows enough ambient sound to come through that you can hear yourself speak while still reducing distractions around you. It’s not perfect, but it’s better than nothing.ORIGINAL REVIEW:Number one thing you need to know: If you’re using these for meetings or phone calls, wait. Right now, there is a bug where you cannot hear yourself speak (i.e. self voice / side tone doesn’t work). It’s as if you’re conducting a meeting with ear plugs in. This is Bose firmware 1.5.4 (for those of you reading this in the future).I’ve tried this on two different headsets, one from Amazon, one from Walmart, different manufacturing dates. It flat out doesn’t work – there is no difference between high self voice and off. I’ve also updated the Bose Music app – doesn’t help. The good news is that this is probably a software bug as aware mode seems to work (can hear myself speak but also hear everything else in the room as well).Bottom line – I think this headset is nice, but I’m not sure about it being worth $420, and definitely not worth that amount when I have to switch to my older QC35s to conduct Teams meetings so I can hear myself speak.Also not a fan of the solid state volume slider. I much prefer the buttons on the QC35 series.Edit: On the Pro side: one not advertised feature is bluetooth range. This headset supports bluetooth 5.3 which is a significant upgrade from 4.x that the QC 35ii supports. With this headset, I can leave my phone in one corner of the house and walk all the way over to the other corner with no loss of signal. It’s more than double the range of the older bluetooth protocols. The headset is backwards compatible with bluetooth 4 devices, but to get this benefit, make sure your phone / laptop / whatever supports bluetooth 5.On the negative side, another feature that annoys me on this set of headphones is the on-head detection. The way it’s supposed to work is that when you take off your headphones, they automatically pause whatever is playing and go into a low power state. In theory…In practice, this is somewhat annoying for two reasons:1. It’s not bullet proof. Maybe 1 out of 20 times I take off the headphones, it doesn’t detect it and the music keeps playing. The benign case is when music is playing and you notice it and fix it. The treacherous case is when you’ve already paused the music, take off the headset, and then it doesn’t go low power mode. Next time you wear them the battery will be dead. 2. If you take off the headphones, they don’t disconnect from Bluetooth right away. It takes some time before it disconnects. So you end up having to manually disconnect anyway to use your phone / laptop speakers instead of the headset, and at that point you wonder why these don’t simply have a slider on / off switch like the older models.

    Excellent sound

    I use the headphones mostly when I travel and to listen to music or watch a movie on my iPad whilst I am in the air. The headphones are excellent it isolates one from the world in the aircraft, all the noise, is blocked out.

    the best sound in the world…

    There are so many good things that can be said about this product, starting with it is a unique and incredible sound, what they managed to do in these headphones is without a doubt majestic and it is another level of sound, you can notice the difference as soon as you put them on and You choose a mode, the difference that exists in each of them and how the music manages to surround you in different ways in each mode, noise cancellation is another aspect that undoubtedly evolved with this model and this brand since it manages to abstract you from reality and It seems like you are at a concert where they play for you only, it is a great experience, they connect to your phone in 2 seconds and through the app you manage all the functionalities of the headphones, even so for people like me who appreciate music , the details and the clarity of each nuance, I think it lacks volume, when you put it at maximum volume you feel as if it was still missing a little more but there is no more, I suppose it is the price you pay for clarity in the sound, but for The price of these headphones I think they should have considered that a slightly higher volume would be of great appeal to the public like me.

    Top of the line

    I needed some quality headphones for a few different reasons. I road trip a lot with children and needed some quiet time to get some work done, and my husband works in an office where he is constantly doing virtual meetings. These headphones have made both of these things a huge upgrade! The different modes are helpful as well. In the car I had on “aware” mode and was able to hear if my kids were asking me for something but could not hear that my husband had some music playing on the radio pretty loud. So crazy how you can hear one thing but it completely blocks out another!I wanted to learn more about the immersion mode so I downloaded the app. I usually don’t like downloading an app for every product I have, but the demo was so useful and it explained how immersion mode works and OH MY GOSH it is so cool, it really makes you feel like you are actually seeing someone perform live.We had some confusion connecting them and learning to switch back and forth between different phones at first but it does get easier. The fact the headset only has two buttons makes it a learning curve at first to remember how many times to push the button for answering calls, ending them, skipping forward a song, skipping backward, etc gets a little confusing but once you have it down its hard to forget. My husband said they work really well for his business calls and he can hear clearly and his co workers can understand him very well. Only complaint would be I found they put too much pressure on my head that I could not adjust away. I was constantly pulling a side up to relieve the pressure, so long term use isn’t for me but I was the only one that tried them in my family that had this problem. Otherwise they were quite comfortable! Overall I am very happy with this purchase and plan to use these for work and for fun for quite a while.

    Would love it if they didn’t include gimmicky and inconsistent auto-off features!

    Great product overall in terms of noise cancelling and sound quality. Volume control is fine too. My main issue with this product is the supposed “feature” of headphone head detection. I cannot consistently get the product to turn off when I remove it from my head. I usually lay my headphones down on my desk and supposedly the headset is supposed to detect when it is no longer on my head – but I do not think this feature works consistently enough to justify the price. I repeatedly find myself having to manually turn the device off (which is cumbersome with the current ‘press-and-hold’ implementation on the product). The sound feedback for turning the device on and off is also much too delayed because of the press-and-hold requirement. The audio signals for on/off in the device aren’t ideal either (they sound fancy, but they fade in on both on and off.. so it’s always seeming like a delayed response). I’d rather hear an instant on-off.. or give me the option to change the settings in the headphone so that the power buton instantly turns the phones on or off. I’d much rather see a simple on/off switch on this headphone so that I know immediately that the device is turned off.

    My favorite headphones

    I’ll start by saying I’m coming from an older model Bose Quiet Comfort 25. I know, I know. Its a 9+ year old pair of headphones. Its worked great all this time and didn’t feel the need to upgrade. Well let me tell you, now that I own the new QC Ultra Headphones, I’m so glad I made the upgrade. The sound quality and noise cancellation is light years ahead of the QC25 and QC35 (I’ve used a pair on a transatlantic flight). The new Ultra doesn’t disappoint. The battery life is amazing (up to 24 hours)! A new feature with the Ultra is called Immersion mode. I can EASILY tell a difference– off feels like you’re listening through headphones and on feels like you’re actually in a room with the music. After testing with multiple music sources, I can honestly say I think its far more than just a gimmick. The controls are very simple to use. Its really only one button on the side to control play/pause, next, previous, etc. The volume is controlled by sliding your finger over a smooth ridge and is easy to find and use. The real test, in my opinion, comes does to comfort. It doesn’t matter how great the features are, if the headphones aren’t comfortable, you wont use them. I’ve used these non-stop on a 3 hour flight so far and I felt like I could have easily worn them far longer. If I had to have one gripe about these it would be they only fit in the carrying case one way. Bose does include a diagram attached in the case and I think once I take them in and out more I’ll get used to putting them in the correct way each time. I’d 100% recommend these without question to anyone looking for a high quality pair of noise cancelling headphones.

    Best Headset Ever

    I wanted something that I could use at work for Teams meetings and for enjoyment of audio books, YouTube videos and music. The noise canceling is the best I’ve ever heard from the moment you power on, just a superb quality you would expect from Bose.

    Fantastic Sound.

    I’ve tried out several types of cans and the sound on these are top notch. The Bose app pairs well with these. The spatial audio is far out. They are comfortable for long trips and don’t really get too warm. My only real complaint is they seem fragile for international travel – I was always afraid of them breaking. Don’t get me wrong – they are very well made…I just worry they’ll break easier than my Sony XM4’s. But don’t keep this from buying them. If you have the cash – the sound is superior to all other cans I have tried out.

    Very, very good.

    I’ll keep it simple. At first I wasn’t impressed, but after spending time with some competition (Focal Bathys, Momentum 4, XM5) I have a much high appreciation for the Bose Ultras.The “Immersive” audio feature isn’t great for music, but it’s AMAZING for watching a movie!The EQ also takes a while to dial in, but once you do I think you’ll love the sound on these.Personally I’m using +4, -1, +5 for my EQ and it works great for all types of music.+3/+4 for the bass helps add some thump without getting too muddy.0/-1 for the mids keeps them present and natural sounding.+4/+5 for the highs helps vocals sound clear in music and in movies.The noise canceling is obviously the best on the market, and the “Aware” setting is nearly as good as Apple’s Transparency mode.Bose also gives you a 2 year warranty if you purchase directly from their website. And you get a $20 off code for signing up for emails.Pick yourself up a pair. They also feel like a huge improvement over my wife’s QC45’s.

    Good but an Issue

    These are fabulous when listening to music from my iPhone. However, I do have an issue with using them for phone calls. They do block out all the external noises around you, which takes some getting used to, but then the volume of the call cannot be raised beyond a certain point where I find it easy to understand. The simple earphones I have don’t have this problem while they do let some ambient noise in, they also enable the volume of the phone to be increased to be easily understood. Can’t tell if it is my ears or the design of the headphones.

    Amazing!

    I’m a student using these as my everyday headphones. I’m sure they don’t compare to audiophile headphones, but as just a regular consumer these headphones have been amazing! The noise cancellation is incredible. I do get some wind noise while using them outside, but indoors they’re the best noise cancellation I’ve ever had on wireless headphones. They can fold flat, but not in half, which does give them a bigger footprint technically, but the case is so flat I never have a problem fitting it in my bag. I almost never take my headphones out of noise cancellation mode and use them very heavily and have never had them die on me. I think saying they have 16-20hrs battery life is pretty accurate.I am a little concerned with the hinges as they feel a little fragile to me. If you are careful with your headphones it doesn’t feel like they’re going to break, but if you’re someone who’s going to put them in a bag without a case or something like that I’d be a little concerned. It’s also worth noting that I can see these things getting REALLY frustrating if you try to use them without the bose app. With the app, they’re great, but trying to change between my MacBook, iPad, and phone without going into the app is near impossible because the headphones can only maintain consistent Bluetooth connection to two devices.

    Fit & finish and Sound Quality🤗🤯😎

    It’s all good!! Very comfortable to wear and I gotta fat head. I forget I got them own most of the time. Of course I am 73 years old, (53 and 240 months, sounds better), and I forget a lot lately…. The EQ lets you fine tune the sound to your liking. Bluetooth multi connection is the bees knees!!. Got my Denon avr x2700h, lg c55, iPad Pro 4ht & 3rd gen and iPhone 14 Pro all added to the Bose Music app. I can have 2 of the devices connected live at once and can rotate to any other one with just a touch of the finger. Immersive audio is, is….well very immersive. I use the ‘Motion’ option.Oh, I also always wear my Oticon More 1 rite hearing aids with them.I know it’s $$$ but IMHO worth it. Like I said, it’s all good.

    Best ANC, which is what I wanted

    It’s funny to me to read some of the low reviews to see what issues other people have with this pair of headphones. If your headphones break within one year of usage, that’s likely your problem not being careful enough. I’ve had my now discontinued Bose QC 20 and QC 35 for over 10 and 8 years respectively, and they still work just as well as before (had to replace the cups a few times though since they wore out).But I digress. I got the QC ultra without any discounts for the best noise cancellation I can find, because I live with annoying neighbors and constant construction, and it has saved my sanity. Reviews about how it’s annoying to disconnect from two sources just need to watch the tutorial video on YouTube. It’s not perfect, but that’s fine. Unless you have to constantly switch audio and don’t need ANC you should certainly go for a cheaper option.For me this is all I need. I’m loyal to ANC.

    My New Fav!!!

    Only used for a few days but higher impressed already. First thing is that the sound is amazing! First pair of Bose headphones so my comparisons are with my previous Sony XM4s and my brief try of Airpods Max from my friend. Noise cancellation is amazing and I say slightly better than Sony but again this is the XM4 I used not the new XM5 so I had less of that white noise swoosh sound used in that mode. Transparency also impressive sounding natural and again a step above Sony but still believe Apple leads in both features. Now sound yes like the ability to custom EQ and played around for the sound and like it but Sony does have more presets and EQ bands and bass adjustments so wish Bose had more of that but still got the sound that worked for me. The headphones are also comfortable but wish they extended the headband just a little more and slightly bigger earcups but over a few days just had to break them in for my ears and get used to wearing them. Also great that they fold and the nice case and the new XM5 doesn’t fold and bigger case so that’s why I didn’t upgrade from XM4. Another con is wired mode has to be with headphones on with battery so that’s sort of new with wired supposed to work without power as backup. These still are now my main headphones and will for years but again updates for more EQ settings would be nice.

    Bluetooth Doesn’t Connect Immediately

    When i turn on the headphones even they are paired already with my Iphone 14 Pro Max, it doesn’t seem to connect easily unlike my Sony’s XM4. I have to go to bluetooth settings and it shows connected but it is not. I have to connect again and it works fine. Hoping they will fix it on firmware update or so. Sound quality is superb as always.

    Light & comfortable

    I finally had to retire my old Bose overear headphones after many years of unwavering service. I didn’t realize how beat down the old ones were until I put these on. So soft and so squishy! Besides being very comfortably for long periods of time on my head, all of the sound options are amazing. I’m enjoying the “immersive” selection.

    Unmatched Noise-Cancellation and Sonic Bliss

    The Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones are a game-changer. As an avid music enthusiast, frequent traveler, and love of movies in a loud and busy household, these headphones have improved my audio experiences in ways I never knew were possible.First and foremost, the noise cancellation is unparalleled. The moment you put these on, the outside world fades away. However, it still offers the ability to be aware of your surroundings when needed without stoping your audio. I’ll be honest, I thought that spatial audio may be more of a marketing gimmick, but it is incredible. Especially when watching movies, when you turn your head, the sound moves with you providing the feeling of being immersed in the moment.Comfort is another standout feature. In my use case, I am wearing the headphones for prolonged periods of time, and most of the time you almost forget you have them on. However, the new head-on detection is really cool. The moment you slip the headphone of your ear, your entertainment pauses, and then when it is back in place, your entertainment seamlessly starts back up.If you are traveling you don’t need to worry about the headphones going out on you, because the battery life is incredible. As with all Bose products the craftmanship and quality is top-notch. I have been hesitant to purchase Bose headphones in the past because I just didn’t think that I would be able to tell enough of a difference. I was wrong.Overall, you will not be disappointed with these headphones, the only minor issues that I have run into are the fact that Bose utilizes two different apps to control their devices, so I was previously using Bose Connect, and the headphones require Bose Music. And although you don’t really need the app once you have set them up, it would be nice to have that experience streamlined. I have also noticed that sometimes a new blue-tooth pairing can be a little finicky, but overall is very good.I am beyond excited to have these headphones, and it has added so much to my entertainment enjoyment.

    Everything is great but ear cup are not comfortable in longer use.

    Used it on a long flight but it is not as comfortable as my 35’s. Everything is there and spatial is superb but my ears started to feel more pressure and heat up to the point that it is about to swell. I wish the pads are a bit more comfortable.

    A great successor for my QC 35

    I’ve had the QC35 for years now and it’s always been my go-to headset. For all-around purposes, the QC35 was the best for both music, conference calls and phone calls. I have a pair of Sony MX3’s that I use for music since it has a little more bass to them than the QC35 but, overall, the QC35 was my favorite. That said, it’s almost been 4 years now and it’s starting to show some wear and slowly dying on me. Time for a new headset so I went for this new QC Ultra and I’m more than satisfied with this one.Music wise, it’s better than my Sonys. I did have to tinker around with the EQ a bit but I did manage to get a setting that I really like so I may just need to retire my Sonys too. For conference/phone calls, this thing is great. Easy to pair with my home/work laptops and sound and voice clarity is crystal clear.The big thing was the updated ANC. It’s much better than the QC35 and the immersion setting it fantastic. Really makes the sound come through clear without any weird distortions or anything.Fit/form, these actually fit a little better than the Qc35s did. They’re a big more snug, in a good way, and don’t get as loose as the QC35 did. The older style buttons have been replaced with more streamlined buttons and there is a volume slider neatly integrated behind the right ear cup. Battery life is supposed to be around 24 hours but we’ll see how that goes.Overall though, a really nice upgrade from the QC35. I will miss those headphones but this is a great successor to those hands down.

    Improved my life!

    I used them actively on a 10 hour flight plus the hour taxi ride home. The battery was still above 50% charge – they lasted forever. Compared to other over ear headphones, these were quite comfortable. And the noise cancellation is amazing (seriously wish I’d gotten real noise cancelling heads before!); it was the first flight I’ve ever taken where I could hear what I was listening to without the volume maxed out above advised levels. These were expensive but I’m so happy with the purchase I think the value matches the price. Sound quality is great and the app lets you adjust bass or treble to your liking.

    Excellent sound quality, comfort, noise canceling.

    The immersion mode really sounds great. These headphones are especially great for classical music. They are well balanced, and the Bose app lets you change EQ setting to customize your sound. Premium build quality. These are likely the best wireless ANC on the market. I will update my review in case I end up with any reliability issues, but from what I hear about other Bose products, these headphones will last me many wonderful years. The only thing I’d like better about these headphones is placement of the touch controls. I’d rather have them on the top of the right ear cup itself rather than on the back of my right ear cup, but that is very minor and the app also lets you manage bluetooth connections easily and change modes.

    Bose QuietComfort Ultra

    I ordered the Bose QuietComfort Ultra and they fit SO comfortably, I can seriously listen to music in these for hours and my ears don’t get irritated or hot. Which is a big issue I have trying to find over-ear headphones. The sound quality is definitely premium, they sound just as good as the Apple Pro’s my sister has. The materials on them feel nicer than what’s on other headphones in this price range. But I would consider these higher end headphones for sure. Connecting them is easy so if you are not tech savvy don’t worry, if you’re interested in a higher quality headphone and are in between these or the slightly less expensive ones I recommend just straight out buying these ones because you definitely get a fair enough more with these. They came packaged very well and in immaculate condition. I love them! Definitely recommend.

    As noise cancellation quality goes up, control interface declines.

    Pro: compared with QC35, noise cancellation is superior, and these headphones fold flatter than QC35.Cons: 1: delayed audio feedback when turning on. Previous models would immediately play a sound when powering on. This model’s delay is long enough that you aren’t sure if it registered the press. 2: The touch-slide volume control zone is located on the bottom of the right ear cup and is very picky. You have to be right on target to get it to register. QC35 had a larger zone located on the side of the ear cup.

    Invest

    I had purchased these and have been wearing them for a good while now. I have owned the AirPods Max for more than 6 months now and they are good headphones but I was looking for an alternative until I found these. For so much less these are really living up to their ultra name and comfort is astronomical I wear these during work and I’ll forget their on sometimes when I don’t need to lean down or tilt me head in any way. The immersive audio being inspired probably my Spatial Audio is so good. Especially with how good the noise cancellation you can’t hear anything. I’ve also love the way the max’s awareness mode is not robotic like others Bose is the same way. Though the awareness mode is better where you can still hear your music but still hear your surroundings while on the max’s it more quiets down your music to let you hear your surroundings. This is my first time with Bose and I would highly recommend this product if you’re sensitive to loud noises and need to listen to something to soothe yourselfs or if you’re just in the market for a good quality headphone.

    Excellent headphones, just a few quirks

    Every other review will focus on the amazing sound quality, noise cancellation and build quality, so I will tell you what I found that I don’t personally like about these headphones, so you can make a more informed decision. Just to be clear, I still love these headphones.The Bose QC Ultra has a feature where if you take one earphone off your head, they auto-pause what is playing. I don’t personally like this feature because sometimes I don’t want to pause when I take one cup off my head. I would rather always press a button.A second small gripe I have is that these earcups are a bit more hard than previous iterations. I have a pair of QCII’s and I much prefer the soft comfort of those earcups to the slightly more firm padding on the QC Ultra.The final thing is the volume control. I am not a fan of touch controls and they have decided to go with a touch slider on this iteration. If my hand is a bit sweaty, it will stutter along the surface for inconsistent volume control. I would rather have physical buttons.Other than these small things, this set of headphones is superb. I would still take them over the competition.

    A tale of two…..

    I’m sharing my experience with both ultra versions, Big vs little, one could say. So, being they’re essentially the same price once you get the additional wireless charging case for the earbuds, $350 for the buds, $379 for the earphones. While they have a similar sound signature, there are some differences. First is obvious, the size. Either one you go with feels comfortable and stays put. Second is battery life, as the headphones at approximately mid 20s, get way better battery life compared to the earbuds 5hrs of continuous usage. Lastly would be the big difference would be the sound and sound stage. The headphones win here as it’s more wide, outside of your head vs the buds being right where your ears are. Also, the headphones have a more balanced sound for critical listening vs the buds having a more bass oriented sound, really more ideal for the gym, though both are suitable. One additional side note would be the noise cancellation. Both are very good but the buds edge out the headphones slightly as the buds are resting in your ears blocking out sound naturally on their own. All in all, both are an excellent choice and you cannot go wrong as the sound, though colored to Bose’s signature sound, they’re entertaining and engaging in all the right ways.

    Best of the ANC headphones I’ve tried

    I tested the Bose QC Ultra as well as the Sony XM5 and Sennheiser Momentum 4 and I think these are overall the best. However, they do have a lot of flaws that make me doubt whether the “Ultra” moniker fits.Pros:1. Good sound quality2. Amazing noise canceling, the best I’ve heard3. Great comfort. I have no issues using these for hours on end4. Headphones fold up into a compact case5. No issues so far with Bluetooth connectivityCons:1. Battery life is 24 hours, which is less than the competition2. You can’t use them while charging3. You can’t turn off ANC, which seems like a really dumb thing to omit4. Microphone is subpar and I expected better at this price5. Controls are not as good as the Sony and the volume slider is clunky

    Bose is still the best in the business

    I have owned probably 4 pair of these over the past 25 years — I upgrade when they no longer connect to whatever phone I’m carrying — and I also own the noise canceling ear buds, too. This particular set of headphones has an option to provide a room-wide sound so that when you move your head, you hear the sound differently (as if it was coming from one direction) that I thought was very nice. As usual, these are comfortable to wear amd attractove. I like the off-white color, whatever they are calling it these days..

    Compared to QC35

    This review is going to be based on how much of an upgrade these are compared to the QC35.Sound: Short answer is they are noticeably better even without the immersive sound option. The bass can “hit” much harder and has a richer deeper sound. I thought that the QC35 did a fantastic job of putting me in the environment of the music I was listening to, but the Ultra’s do an even better job. I like to have a headspace of escape when I use my headphones while I work and these do an even better job. I’ll be honest about the immersive audio feature that I am not sure it’s something I value. I have tried to listen to songs repeatedly with it on and off, it I do not feel it adds much to the experience. Perhaps my viewpoint will change with time.User Interface: The multi-function button has more options than the QC35 button. I like the volume slider vs buttons because it allows you to make smaller volume adjustments vs pre-determine volume adjustments. You keep your finger on the touch slider and move it slowly. I wish Bose had used the touch panel option for the track management like they did on the 700. Clicking the multi-function button 2x to go forward; 3x to go backward. 4x is set in the app whatever you want it to do. The headphones will go into stand-by if you lay the cups flat on a table or surface. The LED will pulse slowly to know you are in stand-by. I have left my QC35 on many times to come back disappointed to find them dead. Then when you pick them up and put them on your ears they come out of sleep mode. USB-C is nice, the QC35 was micro-usb and I don’t tend to use that style of cable anymore.Build: The hinges on this seem to be more sturdy than the qc35. The hinge action is smooth with no clicking. The headband is a bit sturdier as well. The cushions are a bit more stiff than the QC35 so hopefully that leads to more longevity because the older style tends to wear out and you have to replace them.APP: One thing that hampers the QC35 more than the new version of the headphone which I think is the QC35II and later is the options available in the Bose Music App verses the Bose Connect App. The Bose Music has much better fined tuned features with regards to the noise cancellation options and equalizer settings. The QC45 and 700 I know use the Bose MusicMic: I have used this for many phone calls and virtual meetings. I haven’t received any complaints about being heard or being clear.

    Try it before you buy it.

    Let me tell you honestly. I am very enthusiastic about having the best quality headphones. Not in terms of the build and sound but also comfort and portability. I was using qc45 for a few weeks but when this one was released, I thought I should buy this one instead.Now It arrived and I tried. I have used it for a few days. Here are my thoughts.1. It is a solidly built headphones. There is no question about the quality and that premium feel.2. Sound is a bit better than qc45, sony xm4, and xm5 (yes, I have tried those as well). Immersion audio mode is excellent.3. Confort is where it didn’t work for me. I use headphones for long hours for work. And I need something that sits on my head without causing too much ear pressure or the pressure on my eyeglasses. But this one does. The clamping force is enough to cause discomfort in approximately 30 minutes.So my recommendation is that first try them before you buy them. 🙂

    Sound is amazing.

    Sound so amazing. Wish the fit was a little more snug for when leaning back or lying down. It trends to flop off my head and it have it as small as possible. It sometimes has trouble connecting at start up, even to devices it had previously connected too. The volume adjusting by swiping your finger along the bottom of the right ear cup is cool til you are lying down and it rubs up against a pillow or your shoulder. The quality of the sound makes up for the little nuisances for me.

    Best Headphones Ever

    Bose has always been the winner with noice cancelling. Can cancel out plane engine noise so it’s great to have during a flight.

    Sleek comfortable Headphone with Multipoint

    I’ve owned many headphones, earbuds, and a few noise-cancelling over-the-ear headphones like this Bose one. By far, this is the best looking and comfy headphone that I’ve used. I love that it features auto-on and power-saving mode when putting it on and off, so I don’t have to worry about keeping it on and coming back to a dead battery. Bose’s noise-cancelling headphones are known to be popular amongst those who travel frequently in the airplane rides, and while I haven’t had a chance to test this in the airplane yet, it completely blocks out ambient noises like my AC running, neighbor’s lawn mower, etc. Without any music playing, I’m able to hear my family conversing in the same room, but still works well. New feature called the immersion mode, is quite cool. It makes the sound more hollow as if you’re in a bigger space, so that it feels more like it’s coming out of the space you’re in. The head-tracking mode is super interesting as you turn your head, but I don’t think I’ll use that feature much. My favorite part of this headphone is the multipoint. It lets me connect to both my laptop and my phone, and depending on which source is playing sound, I’ll be able to hear without having to disconnect and reconnect. I wish all bluetooth audio devices supported this feature! As shown in the photo where it’s folded up, I feel like a pouch might be easier to store instead of the zippered case that came with it. While it does a great job of storing it, having to align the orientation to make it flat takes some time getting used to. My head’s circumference is about 59.5 cm and I have to extend the headphone all the way to fit my large head but I imagine it’ll work well for most people with average head size. I’d say the headphone is definitely on the pricy side, but it’s definitely a premium device that many will enjoy using.

    Love these Bose

    These headphones are the best I have ever owned. They have the most effective noise cancellation of any over-ear models I have tried, and they also have amazing sound quality. The immersive audio mode creates a realistic and spacious soundstage that makes me feel like I’m in a live concert. The headphones are also very comfortable and lightweight, and they have a long battery life. They support the AptX Adaptive codec for high-quality streaming on compatible devices, and they also work as a Bluetooth speaker. The design is sleek and elegant, and the materials are premium and durable.I gave them 5 stars because they are worth every penny. They are easy to use and work flawlessly. They are the perfect headphones for anyone who wants to enjoy music and shows without any distractions. They are a huge upgrade over previous models and a strong competitor in the market. I would recommend them to anyone who loves sound and noise cancellation. 😊

    Sound quality!

    Got these for my daughter for Christmas. Initially had gotten her some beats, but they just didn’t sound very good. Got these instead and they sound great. Sound canceling is a very effective as well. She is very pleased with them.

    Terrific upgrade

    Firstly, I am a huge fan of the Bose Quiet Comfort series. I’ve had 2 pairs of the QC35s and my wife’s daily headphones have been the QC45s. When the QC Ultras were released, I knew I had to try them. Set up: Set up was super easy through the Bose Music app. It took around 30 seconds to find and pair these headphones with my phone and levels and volume were easily adjustable through the app. Ease of use: The volume buttons have been replaced with a touch bar. You swipe up and down to control the volume. You can also long hold on the sound control bar for custom controls. There are still 2 physical buttons that offers quick controls to play/pause music, fast forward/rewind, and pickup/hang up calls. The power switch has been removed. Instead the headphones will power on and off automatically. Updates: The headphone has a USB C port for charging. Each charge lasts 24 hours. The bluetooth range feels like it’s stronger than my QC35s. I can walk around the house without bringing my phone with me and my music and calls did not drop or become choppy. There is also no more need to turn the headphones on and off. The headphones turn off when they’re not on my head and then powers all the off after 24 hours. Overall: I am extremely happy with these headphones and would recommend them to all my friends and family.

    Not the sound profile for me- vocals felt subdued

    A subjective review, I mainly listen to ballades, classical, krnb/kpop, jazz… so i prefer somewhere close to the harman curve.I own hd 800 s and the airpods pro 2nd gen. I wont compare them to the 800 s because the price difference.Comfort- no complaints 4.6/5. Just got a bit warm due to me playing at higher volume because i want to hear vocals.Sound- some people say that its loud and some people say its quiet. I realized why people say this. Vocals are quiet, and almost become less present/more muddy when the volume is turned up. for me, the dip in the lower treble/high mid bothered me extremely, the sole reason im returning them. I prefer there not to be a dip there so that vocals are more present. For example the airpods pro 2nd gen/hd 800 s do a much better job at this region. And even though i tried to eq through bose app, it did not fix the dip present in the vocals. If you like to to listen to ballades, jazz, or anything with a lot of singing and instruments, i wouldn’t recommend them for this reason. The airpods pro 2nd gen have much better tuning sadly. If you dont listen to vocals or dont care if they are prominent you might like these. 2.5/5Connectivity- i like that you can connect to two devices at once, it worked smoothly. 5/5Packaging-sucked, ugly box, not that it matters.Anc- quite good, 5/5Immersive audio- horrible compared to what apple has going on, not to hate. There is a crazy delay when using the motion mode, and still mode lowers sound quality, so its useless. 0/5Value- uh i think 2.5/ 5 its good for its anc, though i think anc has gotten good across the board, so I dont really care.Style -4.5/5- i find them to look niceTldr: don’t like the tuning. Like the tuning on airpods pros way more. Horrible spatial audio.

    Tested others, including other Bose and the Ultra’s just cannot be beat!

    I ordered these and then a few of the new Quiet Comforts for family gifts. We tried and compared and the Ultra’s just cannot be beat. The flexibility of how the “Over the ear” sits compared to Beats or Bose QC is far superior. The others might be ok for short-term listening comfort but after a while their inflexibility just hurts the ear and/or surrounding area. The Ultra’s were fantastic. Long term use was not a problem and the natural sit over the ear ensured unwanted noise did not seep through. I highly recommend the Ultras over the Beats, Sony, Apple, and Bose QC – for sound and fit.

    They’re Bose. What’s not to like?

    I’ve only had them for a few minutes, and I already love these headphones! I use them for listening to music, and as a side benefit I find that they have an excellent built-in stereo microphone. I’m using it right now, so I can dictate using Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I am using it to write this review.The headphones are of the “over ear” variety, which means that they cover the entire ear. This might be a problem for some purposes, but for my purpose it’s excellent. I will be using these at home for work, and for listening to music. Needless to say, they have excellent sound. They’re Bose, right? They do not come with one of those funny little proprietary Bluetooth adapters, so I presume that they will work with just about any Bluetooth phone, radio, television, media player. They are light and comfortable. I haven’t had the chance yet to test the noise canceling feature. I suspect that these have several whizbang features that I haven’t even read about yet. I will just assume for now that whatever those features are, they are going to function perfectly and I’m going to love them.
