Bose QuietComfort 35 II review


Bose's QuietComfort 35 II ($350, £330, AU$500) wireless noise-cancelling headphone looks, sounds and performs just like the original except for one key feature: There's a new "Action" button on the left ear cup that allows you to connect to your Google...

The Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphone adds a dedicated button for Google Assistant, but it can be programmed for other functions, too. Retains its predecessor's top-of-the-line active-noise canceling, excellent wireless Bluetooth sound and...

Battery isn't replaceable; same apparent design and performance as previous model.

Existing QC35 owners don't need to upgrade, but the addition of a dedicated Google Assistant button gives the already excellent wireless noise-cancelling headphone an extra bit of personality.

Review: Bose QC35 II


Bose's killer travel headphones get a new button that summons Google Assistant.

Still a killer travel headphone. Light, comfy, sturdy, best-in-class noise cancellation. Battery lasts 20-plus hours, even with noise cancellation on. At-the-ready voice control suits music perfectly.

Google Assistant only works when Google Assistant can hear you, which isn't often enough. Nothing less fun than having all your notifications read aloud when you're trying to listen to music. As ever, they sound like crap in passive mode.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II


Now with Google Assistant, Bose's latest pair of QuietComfort headphones, the QC35 II, is the best pair of wireless noise-canceling headphones you can buy.

Powerful audio performance with deep bass response and sculpted highs. Best-in-class noise cancellation, with new on-ear controls to adjust settings. On-ear access to Google Assistant. Can be used in passive mode.

Cable has no inline remote. Highly sculpted sound signature not for purists. DSP has major impact on audio at top volumes.

So, is the new QC35 II worth the extra money, or is it better to save a little on the previous model? It's definitely worth the extra cash—the $349.95 price is the same as the original's when it was released, and it still offers everything that model...

Bose QuietComfort 35 II review: Superb noise-cancelling headphones with added smarts


The first-generation QC35 was among the most lauded noise-cancelling headphones. The second-generation continue that trend of excellence, but with the

Superb sound ; Great battery life ; Google Assistant and notifications surprisingly useful ; Noise-cancelling is great - and comes in three levels

Google Assistant is a little more limited on iPhone ; Not the sleekest design ; Battery life not as long as some competitors

The first-generation QC35 was among the most lauded noise-cancelling headphones. The second-generation continue that trend of excellence, but with the addition of Google Assistant - which is surprisingly useful for managing notifications.
