Bose QuietComfort 35 II review:


Bose's QuietComfort thirty five II ($350, £330, AU$500) wireless noise-cancelling phone appearance, sounds and performs similar to the first aside from one key feature: there is a new "Action" button on the left ear cup that enables you to attach to your Google Assistant while not having to the touch your phone. which makes the QC35 II -- obtainable in black or silver -- the primary phone to integrate Google Assistant.

Similar to Amazon's Alexa voice assistant, Google Assistant is on the market for humanoid and iOS devices. rather than lecture your phone to access Google Assistant (you have to be compelled to transfer the free app), you simply press and hold the Action button on the QC35 II and issue commands like "Tell ME the newest news," "call Mom" and "What square measure some sensible Indian restaurants nearby?" you'll be able to additionally use your voice to regulate your music playback and compatible good devices in your home.

The new "Action" button is within the left ear cup.

Here's the higher news: you do not have to be compelled to use the Action button for Google Assistant. exploitation the Bose Connect app, you'll be able to select instead to map the Action button to noise-cancellation levels, toggling between Low, High, and Off with every button press. you'll be able to additionally alter the noise-canceling settings within the app, a very important feature for people who could also be sensitive to the sensation of sunshine pressure which will be the by-product of active noise-cancellation.  

Aside from that new button, nothing else has modified. The QC35 has an equivalent cozy match, same top-notch noise canceling, identical controls on the proper ear cup -- affirmative, you'll be able to access Siri on iPhones -- and also the same battery life at up to twenty hours in wireless mode with noise canceling on. If the battery runs out, you'll be able to still use the phone in passive mode (it sounds sensible, not great) and you get a wire for plugging in after you got to.

The QC35 II comes in silver or black.
Sarah Tew/CNET Not the simplest sound, however among the simplest

As I aforementioned in my review of the first QC35, this could not be the best-sounding Bluetooth phone out there, however, it's actually among them. within the past I've compared it to the Sennheiser Momentum two.0 Wireless, noting that the Sennheiser measured slightly higher, with a little tighter bass, slightly higher clarity and was overall additional natural sounding.

Sony's MDR-1000X, that has currently been updated to the WH-1000X M2, may be slightly ahead on the sound quality front. however you're feeling concerning every phone are going to be compact by the recording quality of the tracks, which suggests it's going to vary looking on the kinds of music you hear and wherever you get wise from.
