The Ultra Open Earbuds are designed to be worn on your outer ear and hang off your auricles. They have a U-shaped design with a part that sits within the outer ear and a barrel that hangs outside and the two are connected by a soft rubber material. The barrel also features a button for accessing various features and playback options.

The Ultra Open Earbuds features Bose’s proprietary OpenAudio technology, which projects audio directly into your ear canal with a powerful transducer and a tightly controlled acoustic structure with minimal leakage, so that the sound is only audible to the wearer.

The earbuds also feature the Bose Immersive Audio feature, which uses the company’s proprietary digital signal processing and an onboard inertial measurement unit to create a spatial audio effect that makes the sound seem like it’s coming from around you. The feature has two modes, Still for when you are sitting still and Motion for when you are out and about.

The Ultra Open Earbuds feature Snapdragon Sound, including the latest Qualcomm aptX Adaptive codec that supports lossless and low latency audio. You also get Bluetooth 5.3 but there’s no multi-device pairing, although you can switch back and forth between current and last paired device with a tap of the button.
