“The new QC35’s have the Google assistant baked into the headphones which can be invoked by long-pressing the ‘Action’ button”
Building upon the success of its QuietComfort series, audio giant Bose has come up with yet another high-end noise cancelling headphone. Dubbed the QC35 II, the headphones come as the successor to the QC35 (review) and feature support for Google Assistant.
The new QC35’s have the Google Assistant baked into the headphones which can be invoked by long-pressing the ‘Action’ button. Buyers can then talk into the headphones, the same way they would to their smartphone, and use it to play and control their music, manage their daily tasks, hear incoming messages and make appointments. Moreover, if you don’t want to use the Google Assistant, the Action button can be reassigned to switch between three different noise cancellation levels.
As far as the design of the headphones is concerned, the QC35 II have been constructed out of impact-resistant materials and corrosion-resistant steel, making them extremely sturdy. In terms of technical specifications, the QC35 II draws parallels to its predecessors, the QC35 and offers the same audio performance, dual-microphone connectivity and acclaimed noise reduction technology. Moreover, the battery life is unchanged between the two models too, and the QC35 II offers buyers 20 hours of non-stop music playback. The headphones can also provide a 2.5-hour music playback off a 15-minute charge.
The Bose QC35 II will set interested buyers back by $350 (~Rs 22,700), which is the same price as the regular QC35 model. The headphones are available in hues of Black and Silver and will be available in the US, Australia, Canada, Germany, France and the UK. As of now, Bose hasn’t announced when the headphones will land in India so stay tuned to our blog for more updates on the same.
