Bose Updates Its Most-Loved Headphones

The Connect App is also where you can change built-in Action button's functionality. you can control the noise settings from the earcup when you want, and switch back to your Google Assistant when you want. Bose has launched the QuietComfort 35 II headphones today and they ship with Google Assistant, the company's artificial intelligence-powered smart assistant. In other words, you've got everything from the original QuietComfort 35s, plus access to Google Assistant.

Google mentions in its blog post on the new partnership and integration that it's been working with Bose on Assistant integration for headphones "starting with" the QC 35 II, which implies that we could see this feature expand to more of the Bose line in the future.

The Bose QuietComfort 35 II come in black and silver colors and are made in part of glass-filled nylon and stainless steel, in order to give them more ruggedness in case you need to take them outdoors. Bose claims they are sweat- and water-resistant, and that they deliver up to five hours of battery life. You can simply ask it to read you the news, set a reminder or alarm, listen to music, change tracks and do much more with it. You can also keep up with news while you take walk, jump in a cab or go for a run. You can choose from a variety of news sources, like CNBC, CNN, NPR and others. But the SoundSport Free are true sports headphones and - despite the higher price - could prove to be a compelling alternative to the AirPods, particularly for fans of Bose's StayHear+ Sport tips and a semi-open design that doesn't require you to jam the tips into your hears to maximize sound quality.




I know what you're thinking - can't you just do this with the speaker on the phone itself?

Whether or not you think Apple AirPods look silly, you can't question their popularity. Not only does doing so allow people to eavesdrop on your business, but it is rude to those around you too.

The Bose QC35 II wireless Bluetooth headphones are available here today for $349. The SoundSport Free headphones and QC35 II noise cancelling headphones will be sold through Bose retail stores, Bose.com, and authorized Bose dealers.
