Bose recently launched its newest lineup of personal audio products in the Philippines – The QuietComfort Ultra, QuietComfort Headphones, QuietComfort Earbuds Ultra, and Smart Ultra Soundbar. The event was held at The Fun Rooftop in Makati, where guests were able to experience the products firsthand.
The Bose QuietComfort Ultra heads the pack with its over-ear design, improved noise cancellation, clear call quality, and more.
These headphones are made out of a combination of plastic, Aluminum, and Protein Leather, making them very comfortable to use even for long hours of listening. Speaking of which, battery life is rated at up to 24 hours, and recharging to full via its USB-C port will take 3 hours.
Using the Bose Music App, you’ll be able to access immersive audio, which gives you several options that sort of allow the sound to adjust to the direction where your head is moving. For example, turning your head to right makes the sound more emphasized on the right, and vice versa.
The Bose QuietComfort Headphones deliver the same class-leading noise cancellation and comfort, minus the immersive audio feature. For calls, it uses an audio cable with an in-line microphone, and also delivers up to 24 hours of uptime in a single charge.
Like its more premium sibling, you can also customize the sound to your liking using the Bose Music App with its adjustable equalizer.
QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds
Succeeding the QuietComfort Earbuds II, the QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds offer a refreshed design that now includes a sort of metallic section that gives a contrast to the rest of the earbuds. The case design remains the same, with a dedicated pairing button and a USB-C port.
While Bose says that this uses the same drivers as the Earbuds II, the improvement comes in its ANC, which was already great to start with. As with the Earbuds II, these also analyze the unique shape of your ears, and adapt to deliver the most optimal sound quality.
They’re very comfortable to wear as well, thanks to the umbrella-shaped ear tips that are super soft but can deliver a really good seal.
As with its over ear model, these also feature immersive audio using the Bose Music app, and offers up to 6 hours of battery life in a single charge. These also boast an IPX4 rating.
Smart Ultra Soundbar
The Bose Smart Ultra Soundbar offers an immersive listening experience with Dolby Atmos and TrueSpace. It also features an A.I-assisted Dialogue Mode that balances voice and surround sound, so you can hear what’s being said with exceptional clarity.
You can use Bose SimpleSync to listen to content using select Bose headphones and Bluetooth speakers. It uses Bose Voice4Video technology that allows you to control connected devices with voice input, and also supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, and Chromecast.
