Bose Updates Its Most-Loved Headphones

  • Like the original QC35 the QC35 II also comes in silver.                  Bose

As the name suggests, the Bose QC35 II follow in the footsteps of the original QuietComfort 35, retaining all the first-gen "performance and features" while merely adding a new Action button on the left earcup allowing you to directly interact with Google Assistant. The two companies worked closely to "create a great Assistant experience", one that will cost you $350. But apart from the presence of the dedicated Google Assistant button, nothing else seems to be changed - the pair has the same noise canceling accuracy and boasts a battery life of up to 20 hours. From there, they will also be able to change the Google Assistant button's functionality so that they can control noise settings from the ear cup if they want. Stay tuned with us for more details on these Google Assistant enabled Bisto headphones from Bose.

This is an "exclusive experience" and first integration of the Assistant into headphones, so you should expect other headphones makers to join the party before long. Bose has launched the QuietComfort 35 II headphones today and they ship with Google Assistant, the company's artificial intelligence-powered smart assistant. These Bisto branded headphones would feature a built-in Google Assistant support. Then again, for most people, that's likely also the point when they stop using their headphones, period. Plus, you can ask Google Assistant a question from the QC35 IIs to find out the score of a football game, whether or not your flight is on time, what's in the news and what movies are playing in theaters at the moment.


Like its predecessor, the QC35 II's noise cancellation is fully activated when the headphone is on, but the Bose Connect App now lets you choose to keep it on (high), turn it down (low), or disable it completely (off).

Do you think these will make the ideal AirPods competitor? The SoundSport Free headphones and QC35 II noise cancelling headphones will be sold through Bose retail stores, Bose.com, and authorized Bose dealers. Priced at $349, they're available for purchase starting today. Bose products for the home, in the auto, on the go and in public spaces have become iconic, changing the way people listen to music.
