Immersive Audio Settings

Immersive audio takes what you’re hearing out of your head and places it in front of you—like you’re always in the sound’s sweet spot. It feels like the audio is coming from outside the headphones, resulting in a more lifelike experience. Immersive audio works on any streaming content from any source, taking your audio to new heights with better sound clarity and richer sound quality.

Using Immersive Audio

To enable one of the two Immersive Audio modes, open the Bose Music app, select your headphones then select Immersive Audio.
