Bose’s QuietComfort series is best known for offering ultimate performance, but to date, the lineup didn’t have any Bose QuietComfort Ultra models. Well, it seems that’s about to change very soon.
Per the latest report, Bose is redying up two QuietComfort over-ear models and a pair of QuietComfort earbuds. And among these, two models will be in the “Ultra” lineup of the Bose QuietComfort range.
What about the third? Well, it seems Bose is about to hit the refresh button on the naming scheme of its QuietComfort headphones.
According to Dealabs, the first model will simply come with the “Bose QuietComfort” name. And truth be told, it’s a wise move from Bose, as the numbering monikers can get a bit confusing sometimes.
The report from Dealabs also goes through the color options for the upcoming regular Bose QuietComfort headset. The non-Ultra pair of headsets will debut in Cloud White, Cypress Green, and Black colorways.
On the other hand, the Bose QuietComfort Ultra will debut in White and Black colorways. What’s more important is that the Ultra model will have a similar MSRP as the Apple AirPods Max.
In other words, with the launch of this Ultra QuietComfort model, Bose will be answering the high-end Apple wireless headset. The third model is not a headphone.
Instead, it will be Bose QuietComfort Ultra earbuds. As you might’ve guessed, the earbuds will be building on the much popular QuietComfort Earbuds II.
So, you can expect to see some serious upgrades. But what about the pricing of the Bose QuietComfort Ultra?
That said, the non-Ultra over-ear headset won’t be affordable either. But that’s quite expected.
After all, the high-end audio solutions from Bose come with top-of-the-line technologies and hardware. And for that reason, they don’t generally fall in the budget-friendly price range.
But considering the fact that the non-Ultra and Bose QuietComfort Ultra models have steeper price tags, there should be some massive upgrades.
We’re expecting to see much-improved noise cancellation, extremely comfortable build quality, Bluetooth 5.2 or higher, and support for LE Audio and high-res codecs. That said, it would be great to see spatial audio support and a higher overall IP rating too.
Also, back in February of this year, there was a leak revolving around the Bose QuietComfort Ultra. The leaked image showcased two buttons and a USB-C input on the left.
