Bose announced its iconic QC35 will be the first headphone to offer seamless voice access to your Google Assistant. It also now comes with settings to control the noise around you.
The QC35 II noise cancelling headphones have all the performance and features of the original QC35. They deliver the same noise cancellation, audio performance, and up to 20 hours of battery life. The same controls remain on the right earcup – audio volume, and the multi-function button for incoming calls and accessing Siri. And now, there’s a new Action Button on the left earcup to connect to your Google Assistant.
Bose and Google worked together on the exclusive experience in the QC35 II, making it the first integration of Google Assistant in a headphone. Press and hold the Action Button, and your own personal Google is ready to help.
Bose’s proprietary microphone system picks-up voices with remarkable accuracy, so commands are understood.
Like its predecessor, the QC35 II’s noise cancellation is fully activated when the headphone is on, but the Bose Connect App now lets you choose to keep it 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.
You can pick up a pair for about NZ$579.95
