Bose has for the past couple of years been slowly changing track to take on the booming smartphone market. So the new Bose SoundTrue Ultra in ear earphones are also meant for those who listen to most of their music on a smartphone and are very active for most of that time.
The Bose SoundTrue Ultra comes with a design that is durable and sweat resistant. It also seems to be relatively tangle free, even though the chords are not flat. The microphone and remove are right under the chord splitter and easy to access when you are out for a morning walk or jog. The silicone eartips fit perfectly and for those who need a different size, there are three tip in the box.
I have always maintained that it is not necessary to write about Bose’s audio quality as that is a given. Even with the SoundTrue Ultra the sounds are rich, deep and full bodied. I tried this primarily during my morning walks and was really impressed by the vocals. There is no noise cancellation here, but the tips can keep out most of the noise and you will be left undisturbed in the musical world. The frequency range is impressive and there is no jarring when high note or volumes are hit.
Actually, I would recommend this more for people who have take a lot of important calls during the day. In fact, all the calls I made were of a superior quality on both sides and no one had an inkling that I was using a headset.
Nothing really major, but when the volume is low you can hear wind whizzing through into the ear tip and this can be irritating when you are on a job.
Also, the price of Rs 11,138 seems a bit steep now since Bose itself has the cheaper offerings in the SoundSport range which doesn’t seem to be much different in terms of features.
The Bose SoundTrue Ultra is among the best in-ear sets available in the market at the moment. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but a lot of Bose don’t really mind paying a bit extra for the superior experience they get in return.
