Bose QuietComfort 35: Finally, a Bose noise-cancelling headphone that's also wirelessThe wait for a Bluetooth noise-cancelling headphone from Bose is over.
This is the Bose product a lot of people have been waiting for. The QuietComfort 35 an active noise cancelling headphone that's also wireless. At $350 it costs more than the wired comfort 25. But, at least it's only a $50 price bump which puts this right around what Beats competing headphone costs. Like the similar looking QC25 this is a lightweight very comfortable headphone and you get the same quality of noise cancellation that you get from the QC25. With microphones inside and outside the ear cups bows since the QC35 measures and sends unwanted sounds to two proprietary digital electronic chips, one per each ear that respond with a precise equal and opposite signal in less than a fraction of a millisecond. The headphones also equipped with a new digital equalizing system that balances the sound whether you're listening at lower or higher volumes. Battery life is rated at 20 hours, which is quite good and there's an integrated remote on the right ear cup with buttons for adjusting the volume and answering and ending calls as well as controlling playback. You can also use this as a wired headphone. Available in silver or black the QC 35 is designed to be used as a wireless headset and it's a good one. It muffles ambient sound like wind and crowd noise so the callers can hear you better and you can hear callers better. There's also a side tone feature that allows you to hear your own voice in the headphone as you speak so you don't raise your voice while talking. This isn't the only new wireless, Bluetooth, noise-cancelling headphone in Bose's lineup. In September, the QuietControl 30 arrives for $300. That's a neckband-style, in-ear headphone that offers variable levels of noise cancelling and is essentially the wireless version of the QC20. My personal preference leans towards the Quiet Control 30 but if youre looking for a full size wireless blue tooth head phone. With best in class noise cancellation the ultra comfortable QC35 is off retempting. I'm David Carnoy, thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
