After numerous leaks, Bose has officially unveiled the new Quietcomfort 35 II (QC35 II) noise-cancelling headphones. As rumoured, the headphones include Google Assistant support and a dedicated button to activate the feature.
The Bose QC35 II will go on sale beginning today in US, Australia, Canada, Germany, France, and the UK for $349.99/ £329.95/ €379.95 in Black and Sliver colours.
“The QC35 is already the world’s most celebrated wireless headphone, and a survival tool for modern life. We didn’t change anything that people already love – with the Google Assistant built in, and new choices for what you hear, we made it better,” said Brian Maguire, director, Bose on-the-go products.
Like most Google Assitant enabled devices, you will be able to play music, add appointments to your calendar, make a call, get notifications about incoming messages/ events/ reminders, get answers to your queries on the Bose QC35 II. The headphones use your phone to do most of the heavy lifting for the Google Assistant commands.
In addition to Google Assistant, the QC35 II packs settings to control the noise around you. You will be able to use the Bose Connect App to keep noise cancellation on (high), turn it down (low), or disable it completely (off). The Connect App also lets you change the Action button’s functionality, so you can control the noise settings from the earcup when you want, and switch back to your Google Assistant when you want.
