Boss Waza-Air Wireless Personal Amp Headphones

Here’s What Boss Say:
“The Boss Waza-Air allows you to experience the joy of playing your instrument, any time, anywhere, without disturbing neighbours, parents, partners, children or people alike. It also takes away the hassle off setting up an amplifier, your pedalboard, a computer and plugging in messy cables. With Waza-Air, simply plug the wireless transmitter into your instrument, put on the headphones and play away until your heart’s content. A big issue with using headphones with a typical mutli-fx units or from an amp, no matter how good they are, the feel and sound isn’t the same as being in the room with your amp. This is what we have focused on with WAZA-AIR, perfectly encapturing the experience and feel of playing with a traditional guitar amplifier, as well as the tone. With Gyro Ambience Technology, the WAZA-AIR places the amp in the room with you, and as you turn your head from left-to-right, the amp stays in the same position. WAZA-AIR doesn’t stop there, you can even stream audio tracks to the WAZA-AIR via Bluetooth and place it behind you, as if you were standing centre stage performing with your favourite band. You can access numerous different amp sounds, effects pedals and download free artist patches, so all types of musician can use WAZA-AIR. The Boss Tone Studio and Boss Tone Central apps are free to download to your favourite Smart Device and you connect to them wirelessly via Bluetooth. For users that would like a wireless experience, and prefer having an amplifier, check out the Katana-Air. The WAZA-AIR comes with a 3-year warranty when registered with Roland Backstage.”

Overview By GAK

The Boss WAZA-AIR could be one of the most unique and revolutionary products that we’ve seen in a while. On first look, you just see a fancy pair of Boss branded headphones, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Where the Boss WAZA-AIR Wireless Personal Amp System can be used as a conventional set of Bluetooth headphones, wirelessly streaming the audio from your smart device, but the WAZA-AIR are no ordinary set of headphones. The WAZA-AIR is a Wireless Personal Guitar/Bass Amplifier System, meaning that you can play your guitar/acoustic/bass anytime, anywhere, without any cables or disturbing anyone around you. The WAZA-AIR comes fitted with a lithium-ion battery, that has approximately 5 hours of continuous playing time, so you can listen to music on the move, as well get in your necessary hours of practice.

The Boss WAZA AIR is designed to make the player feel like they are in a room with a physical amplifier. The Gyro Ambience Technology allows you to position the amp directly in front of you, behind you or as if you were on stage. You can even set the amp to be in a specific place in the room, and as you turn your head, the amp stays in the same position. When placing the amp as if it were behind you on stage, you can utilise the Gyro Ambience Technology to position an audio backing track. You can then position the audio track behind you as if you were performing centre-stage with your favourite band. The WAZA-AIR are noise cancelling too, so you are fully immersed in the experience of playing your instrument, no matter the environment you are in or want to be in.

There are 5 amp voicings on the Boss WAZA-AIR - Flat, Clean, Crunch, Lead and Brown. Clean has the classic American-Style bright/spangly clean sound. Crunch responds just like a traditional Class A vintage British amplifier. The Lead voicing is a modern American-inspired high gain amp. The “Brown Sound” is the essence of the iconic tone of the late Eddie Van Halen and is similar to his classic vintage tone, where the valves of the amp are pushed to the limit - it’s so loud, you might as well jump! The Flat voicing has a flat response, which allows you to plugin Acoustic, Bass or any other instrument that doesn’t require a Guitar Pre-Amp. The WAZA-AIR isn’t just for guitar players!

The Boss WAZA-AIR gives users over 50 iconic effects pedals, ranging from drives, distortions, modulations, reverbs, delays, special effects, EQs and many more. When using the BTS app, you mix and match any of the 50+ pedals, allowing you to build your dream pedalboard rig. There are 6 patch locations that can be saved directly to the WAZA-AIR, as well as a patch librarian for you to store hundreds of customised pedalboards to the BTS App.

The WL-T Wireless Transmitter, that comes included with the WAZA-AIR, is the same that comes with the Boss WL Systems. It can be provided up to 12 hours of continuous use when fully charged by the micro-USB cable (also included). The WL-T comes fitted with an Auto-On function, powering the transmitter on as soon as you plug it into a jack input. The WL-T has Motion Sensor Technology, which automatically powers off the transmitter after a short period of non-use. It will also power back on again as soon as you pick up your instrument. There is also Audio Detection, meaning that if you were to plug the WL-T into a pedalboard, the moment you start playing, the transmitter will automatically power on. Audio Detection will even turn the WL-T off again after 60 minutes of receiving no audio signal. Both Motion Sensing or Audio Detection are designed to save the battery of the WL-T, so you can play for longer. Either can be enabled within the Boss Tone Studio for WAZA-AIR App.

All of this technology is easily controlled by the free Boss Tone Studio for WAZA-AIR App. Which is available for both iOS and Android devices. It connects wirelessly to your smart device and allows you to access all the detailed settings of the WAZA-AIR Headphones. You can create/edit your own patches as if you were controlling the sound of a physical amplifier/pedalboard setup and save them to the Headphones. You can even download free artist patches from Boss Tone Central. Users of the popular Boss Katana Amplifier Range will recognise the interface of the BTS app.

The To protect your WAZA-AIR when on the move, partner them with the Roland CB-BR07 Black Series R-07 Recorder Bag.

For users that still require an all-wireless solution to playing the guitar and prefer having a physical speaker, check out the Katana-Air.

Please note: headphones cannot be returned once the packaging has been opened due to personal hygiene reasons.

Overview By Boss

A Revolutionary New Tone Experience for Guitar

Fusing premium amp and effect tones with breakthrough BOSS spatial technology, the revolutionary Boss Waza-Air takes the guitar experience where it's never gone before. This personal amplifier system brings stunning realism to playing with headphones, using a gyro sensor and moving 3D space to deliver natural "amp-in-room" tone that's rich, resonant, and infinitely inspiring. All-wireless connectivity means there are no cables to slow you down, and you can stream music from your phone and play as if you're performing on stage in a full band. And with the BOSS Tone Studio app, you're able to craft custom sounds with five amp types and over 50 different effects.

The Continuing Evolution of Waza Innovation: In BOSS Waza tradition, Waza-Air brings decades of expertise together with cutting-edge innovation to present a breakthrough musical product that truly pushes the envelope. Far more than a simple guitar-based headphone amp, Waza-Air melds our premium amp, effects, and wireless technologies with dynamic 3D sound, delivering a unique guitar amplification experience that’s never been available until now.

Inspiring "Amp-in-Room" Tone: For most of us, playing guitar through headphones is necessary to avoid bothering others. Unfortunately, they lack the depth and presence of playing a real amp in a real room, resulting in a less-than-satisfying experience. Waza-Air changes all that, restoring the natural dimension, resonance, and "moving air" feel that’s lost with traditional phones. An integrated gyro sensor tracks your head movements as you play, driving sophisticated 3D algorithms that provide spatial realism that must be heard to be believed. And it all happens automatically, so all you have to do is plug in and go!

Premium Amps and Effects: Waza-Air features tones and controls derived from the stage-class Katana amplifiers, with full user customization and a variety of ready-to-play presets available via the free BOSS Tone Studio app. Five different amp types provide tones from classic clean to high gain, plus a full-range voice that’s perfect for bass and acoustic-electric guitar. Over 50 effect types are available as well, including mod, delay, and reverb effects optimized for Waza-Air’s unique spatial experience. And with six onboard memories, you can store favourite setups and recall them with dedicated buttons.

Choose Your Space: Waza-Air’s advanced ambience setups provide three realistic environments to play in. Surround mode places the amp in a virtual room, providing an immersive experience like playing in a recording studio. Things get even more real with Static mode, where the combined amp and room sound changes depending on where you move your head. Finally, Stage mode lets you step into the spotlight, with the amp sound coming from a virtual backline behind you.

Stream Music and Take Center Stage: In addition to providing a wireless connection to BOSS Tone Studio, Waza-Air’s built-in Bluetooth lets you jam along with songs and backing tracks from your smartphone or tablet. In Stage Mode, the streaming music plays from the backline along with your amp, putting you in a virtual band! Just close your eyes and perform alongside your favourite music artists, and step up to centre stage when it’s time for your big solo. Song volume and playback can be controlled right from Waza-Air, with no need to touch your mobile device.

No Wires, No Hassle: All audio connectivity with Waza-Air is 100 percent wireless for a hassle-free experience. With the ability to move and play in complete freedom, you’ll never get tangled in a guitar lead or pull off your headphones by stepping on a cable. And thanks to advanced wireless tech inherited from BOSS’s acclaimed WL series, you’ll always enjoy premium sound quality and great playing feel with ultra-low latency. Auto standby and wake functions conserve battery life between playing sessions, minimizing the need to plug in and recharge.

High-Quality Sound and Rugged Build: Equipped with large, custom-designed 50 mm drivers, Waza-Air provides rich, full sound for both guitar playing and music listening. The conforming earpads and wide headband are super-comfortable for extended playing sessions, while the rugged build ensures lasting durability for everyday practice and jamming. Waza-Air folds down into a very compact size for storage, and it’s possible to swivel the earpieces into a flat orientation for sliding into a guitar bag’s pocket.

    Amazing sound.

    Amazing product. So easy and fast to get setup and playing. Great when you're not near your setup or don't want to disturb others. Spot on!

    These are very good. Sound is excellent and so much better than any other headphone/amp combination I’ve tried. I wanted them for practice purposes primarily and they work so well for that. The tendency for the gyro to drift is annoying but that whole side of the amp in a room thing is a bit of a gimmick. Also the lack of a case is disappointing and even the box they come in is flimsy. Impossible to open the box without tearing it. A very good product, but could easily have been incredible with those shortcomings addressed.

    Ideal for rocking out when you need to keep neighbours (and wives) happy. Sounds are a bit over reverby and echoey even without any reverb/delay selected. User interface on the app not very intuitive. Headphones themselves sound good and are comfortable to wear for long periods. £100 overpriced in my view but they have a monopoly as nothing quite like this.

    Safe delivery, looks great but haven’t used it just yet.
