The best wireless headphones of 2024: Expert tested and reviewed

Bose’s latest QuietComfort Ultra headphones are the ultimate wireless headphones. They offer great audio quality, superior noise-canceling properties, and all-day comfort. 

I tested the QuietComfort Ultra when they were released last fall, and they’re still my favorite pair of everyday headphones. The plush vegan leather earpads have perforations for ventilation, and their modern design makes them stylish and fashionable.

Review: Bose QuietComfort Ultra

Bose improved its sound profile with the QuietComfort Ultra, emphasizing the headphones’ bass response, which was weaker in the past in previous headphones. However, the QuietComfort Ultra headphones do not have a balanced or neutral sound profile, so if that’s your preferred sound, you may want to look elsewhere.

These headphones debut with Bose’s take on spatial audio, Immersive Audio. When I tested Immersive Audio, I thought it was a hit or miss. Some songs sounded wider, deeper, and multidimensional, while other songs sounded strange with the digital sound alteration.

Along with the new feature, Bose also improves upon its active noise cancellation, which is the best I’ve tested yet. The QuietComfort Ultra perform best over a Bluetooth connection, making them best suited for commuters, frequent flyers, and desk workers.
