Design and Built Quality

The Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones is made up of luxe materials that will provide you with utter comfort. It’s like a soft hug for your ears and it fits your ears perfectly. These headphones provide you with a modern sleek and sophisticated look, so if you ever wanna show yourself as someone from this modern day, then these headphones are the best choice. Their body is made up of plastic, aluminum, and leather.

They are built in a manner that firstly they will analyze the shape of your ears, then they will adapt to that shape and lastly, they will adjust in such a manner that you won’t be able to listen to any distortion. From the physical appeal, we can see that this blends the 700’s sharp-looking aesthetic with QC45’s pleasant wearable design. They are nicely padded and have a matte finish. Multiple microphone holes are there, and the case also got some cutouts to collapse and store the headphones in a proper manner. The design is more approachable, and you can have multiple color options.

Sound Quality

Immersive sound quality gives a very sleek sound impression. There is a still setting that gives you the feel of watching a live orchestra. With minute microphone holes, it feels like you are trapped in the music. There is also a “motion” setting that delivers the same dynamic listening experience.

These QC Ultra Custom Tune Technology gave this headphone a sound quality worth more than the Apple or song spatial audio sets. The sound quality has richness and warmth, and it appeals to the user in greater demand. There is a 2.5mm headphone jack along with a USB-C input for charging on the left cup. A connection button is there along with a control button on the right cup.

Active Noise Cancelling and Battery Quality

This device has the most perfect noise-canceling equipment. If you set it to the maximum limit, then you could barely know what was going on around you and all your focus will be on the music that you are hearing. About 95% of the unwanted sound was silenced during the testing.

Call quality is not so top-notch as compared to the Bose 700. They perform well, but sometimes there is distortion in high-frequency sound. Wind may also cause distortion while conversing. Battery life is 24 hours, and, in this respect, it is lacking as compared to the Sony WH-1000XMS which lasts for 30 hours. Quick charging on the QC Ultra net is 3 hours on a 15-minute charge.
