QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II

Overview

Overview

The best from Bose.
Now even better.

LOSE THE NOISE AND WIRES. LOSE YOURSELF IN THE MUSIC.

Engineered with world-class noise cancellation that makes quiet sound quieter and music sound better. So you can just listen, with nothing in the way. And now they’re even better, because you can adjust your levels of noise cancelling between three settings.

Flip the switch.
Get the feeling.

You know the feeling. The kind you get when the rest of the world melts away and you’re transported to a place where it’s just you and your music. With our Acoustic Noise Cancelling technology, you feel it at the flip of a switch. It continuously measures, compares and reacts to outside noise, then cancels it with the opposite signal. So however the music makes you feel, you can really feel it. With nothing in the way.

ADJUST YOUR LEVELS. AND GET LOST IN YOUR MUSIC.

But we didn’t stop there. We made them even better, because the Action button lets you adjust your level of noise cancellation between three different levels. And you can set it to the one that feels right for your environment and your music.

Keep your VPA handy

We made it easy to access your phone’s default virtual assistant, like Siri or the Google Assistant. Just press and hold the multi-function button, then start talking. No need to reach for your phone to start the music or get the answers you need.

BUILT BETTER

When you want to take your music anywhere, you need headphones built to keep up. With impact-resistant materials, glass filled nylon and corrosion resistant stainless steel, they're engineered to survive life on the go. But when you take them everywhere and listen all day, they have to be comfortable, too. That's why the QC35 headband isn't just soft, it's luxurious. Wrapped in Alcantara®—the soft covering material used in yachts and high end automobiles—it provides a welcome comfort designed for all-day listening. And the plush ear cushions are manufactured from a synthetic protein leather, so it won't even feel like you're wearing headphones.

20 Hours
battery life

Enjoy up to 20 hours of listening, enough time to pore through this entire playlist. And when it finally runs down, a quick 15-minute charge gives you another 2.5 hours. For that rare time when you do get caught without battery, use the included cable to plug in and keep the music playing.

Astonishing sound at any volume

You want fullness and clarity for your music, regardless of how loud it gets. That's why our drivers feature volume-optimised EQ for even better performance than before. When you're playing at low volumes in a quiet office, you get the same, consistent quality as when you need to turn it up on a busy street.

An app can make the difference

We want you to get the most out of your headphones. So we designed this free app that makes connecting and switching between devices easier than ever. But that's just the beginning. You can also control the levels of noise cancelling right from the app. We're always working to make it better. Each update gives you things like new features, better integration and product updates. See how a simple, intuitive app makes all the difference.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best just got better This is the fourth pair of Bose headphones (two over-ear noise cancelling and two in-ear sports) I have used and the single biggest takeaway is how much better this new version is than the one before. I was a massive fan of the QC35, but the QC35 II is a huge improvement and another big step forward. Starting with the noise cancelling. There is not doubt now that this is easily the best-in-class product. Bose has led the industry in noise-cancelling but the quality and, in simple terms, the level of noise blocked out by these headphones is incredible and feels a lot better than the original QC35. A new feature is being able to adjust the noise cancelling level to 'high', 'low' or off allows you to adjust how you are using the headphones in different environments. I have been a long-time user of Bose products and have been loyal to the Bose brand as they have never let me down - a very good example of getting what you pay for. These feel no different to the typical Bose product, the premium feel and build quality are evident as soon as they are out the box. The headphones feel lighter than the previous version and still have the same ergonomic, adjustable design so they should be able to sit comfortably for hours at at time. Obviously I am not sure how they last yet, but I do know my old QC15s are still working 10 years on! The 'Bose' sound seems to be something audiophiles want to discuss and being neither an expert nor wanting to try and impose my view on someone else, the quality of the sound I get from my music suits me and the sound quality is crystal clear. This is true even when moving around in the headphones which I have found to be a problem with some other brand's noise cancelling offerings. I spend a lot of time flying and also working in an open plan office so use headphones a lot and the noise cancelling technology is key for me. If this sounds anything like how you use your headphones - or how you could use your headphones - then I can't recommend these enough. The price doesn't make this is an easy purchase but its a premium product and if you look at it on a cost per wear basis, you're going to be looking at a bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save up, these are worth it. There is only one problem with this product and despite that the review entry box invites me to add a photo, I’m not gonna do it. The problem? Headphone hair. You’re going to put these on, listen to music with almost all extraneous sound removed, hear cool things you didn’t hear before, setup a long playlist, check out new music to try, get some serious work done, maybe check into the Google assistant and try that out, and hours are going to go by because they’re that comfortable and sound so good. On public transit you will need to open your eyes and look from time to time or you’ll miss your stop. Try walking through a busy downtown without any music but with noise cancellation on: that is a new kind of strange. And when you finally take them off, your headphone hair will be legendary. Maybe the Google assistant can help you take a picture just for fun. This is a problem, but for great sound and comfort, its a small one. Charging is easy and quick, the controls are well-placed, and there is a wire for situations where wireless isn’t going to work. Even the wire input is well placed: bottom of the left headphone, the one nearest a shirt pocket. Nice touch!

FAQs

FAQs

What is the difference between QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones and QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II?

QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II offer the same unmatched combination of acclaimed noise reduction technology, wireless freedom, audio performance, dual-microphone system and 20-hour battery life as QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones. However, QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II also have a new Action button on the left earcup. In countries and languages where Google Assistant is available, that button gives you instant access to Google Assistant. In countries where Google Assistant is not available, it lets you quickly toggle through three different ANR settings for optimal performance wherever you go.

What is TriPort acoustic headphone structure?

Proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure utilises external ports to vent the earcups and effectively enlarge the acoustic volume, without increasing the size of the earcup. The result is better audio and active noise reduction from a smaller, lighter, more comfortable headphone. TriPort acoustic headphone structure is used in all our consumer headphones and headsets.

How is the total noise cancellation in QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II achieved?

QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II utilise both active and passive noise reduction technologies. They use a sophisticated proprietary electronics approach to active noise reduction, placing microphones both inside and outside the earcups. The electronics system senses the sound in almost any environment and then measures, compares and reacts—instant by instant—to produce an opposing cancellation signal. The passive noise reduction is achieved by the combination of the acoustic design and materials chosen for the earcups and cushions.

What is NFC?

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range wireless technology that enables two NFC-enabled devices to communicate when they are placed in close proximity, typically less than 10 cm (4 in). For QuietComfort 35 headphones II, NFC is used to facilitate Bluetooth pairing. When an NFC-enabled device, such as a smartphone, is placed near the right earcup of the headphones, it pairs them to the device via Bluetooth. Placing the device near the earcup a second time will unpair the headphones.

Can QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II take calls?

Yes. QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II have a dual-microphone system to allow you to use them during calls when connected to a smartphone that supports the Bluetooth® HFP profile. In addition to traditional calls, the headphones will work with many apps that use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), such as Skype or FaceTime. The dual-mic system helps reduce wind and background noise to ensure an exceptional far-end experience, while sidetone lets you hear your own voice so you sound natural when speaking on a call. QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II also support HD Voice.

How do I pair QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II with my mobile device?

For NFC-enabled phones, simply turn on the headphones by sliding the three-position power switch to the middle position and then tap the back side of your phone on the front of the right earcup where you see the embossed NFC logo, and follow the prompt to accept a connection. If you don't have an NFC-enabled phone, first make sure the headphones are turned on by sliding the three-position power switch to the middle position. Next, press the three-position power switch to the Bluetooth icon until the Bluetooth LED flashes blue or the voice-enhanced user interface gives you additional directions. Now, follow the directions within the smartphone's Bluetooth menu to connect the headphones. Once the connection is made, the Bluetooth LED will turn white.

Can QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II simultaneously be connected to two mobile devices?

Yes. Multi-point technology allows QC35 wireless headphones II to maintain a connection to two devices at the same time—for example, an iPad and a smartphone. So, while you're watching video on the connected iPad, the headphones will automatically pause the video to answer a call from the connected smartphone. When the call is finished, the headphones switch back to the video on the iPad.

What is the range of QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II?

QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II have a range of 9 m (30 ft) from the source device. It is realistic to describe the range as being the room the user is in and the adjacent room. This range may be reduced by physical obstructions, such as walls and doors, or by interference from other electronic devices. Pops or a crackling noise may be heard if there's interference with the Bluetooth® connection. If that happens, move away from wireless routers or microwaves and bring your headphones closer to the Bluetooth device.

How do I charge QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II?

QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II can be charged by using the USB cable supplied in the box and plugging into a USB port on a computer or a wall charger (sold separately). Allow up to 2.25 hours for the headphones to fully charge. Once they are fully charged, the battery indicator light will turn green. When you don't have time for a full charge, the fast-charge feature provides up to 2.5 hours of play time from a quick, 15-minute charge.

How long will the battery stay charged?

QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II use a lithium-ion rechargeable battery that stays powered for up to 20 hours while using the headphones wirelessly and up to 40 hours for wired use.

Can you listen to music when the battery runs down?

Yes. These headphones allow users to continue to listen to their source even if the battery power is depleted. Without power, neither active noise cancellation nor Active EQ is able to function.

Can I charge QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II from my PC/laptop?

Yes. QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II come with a USB cable that allows the headphones to be charged from your PC or laptop. Please note that the PC or laptop must be on and awake in order to charge over USB.

What are the buttons for on the back of the right earcup?

The larger middle button is the multi-function button. It initiates play/pause and other track controls for videos and music, answers and ends calls and can also initiate voice commands such as Siri or voice dial. The buttons on either side of the multi-function button are volume +/- buttons. They allow you to easily adjust volume in an intuitive up/down vertical orientation.
