Bose Quietcomfort 35 II Wireless Headphones Review – The new headphones from Bose with Google Assistant

Welcome to my review of the Bose Quietcomfort 35 II headphones.

These are the new flagship headphones from Bose which feature Google Assistant.

Key Features

– QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II are engineered with world-class noise cancellation.
– With the Google Assistant built in, you can play music, receive texts and get answers without glancing at your phone.
– If you’re not a Google user, don’t worry. You can use the Action button to adjust your level of noise cancellation between three settings.
– You can still use Siri or Bixby via the traditional control button on the other headphone cup.
– 20 hours battery life.
– 15 min charge gives 2.5 hours use.
– Voice prompts
– Clear Calls
– Volume optimised EQ

The are one of the first headphones to feature Google Assistant built-in. With a dedicated action button you can literally control your phone without ever looking at the screen. I tested this extensively and it worked well. A WhatsApp message arrived. A voice inside the headphones announces a new WhatsApp message. You then have the option to hear the message read out, and then have the option to reply. Your dictated reply is read out to you. You confirm its ok to send.

Now if you are on iOS, you can change the action button to control the 3 levels of noise cancellation. High, low or off. You can also change this setting in the Bose Connect app. The Bose Connect app also updates the firmware, and gives you access to the instructions, Google Assistant setup and other options.

The noise cancellation is phenomenal. The best. I really like the easy to use controls on the headphone cups. The music quality is good too. Voices are clear in calls. Just one negative. I noticed on YouTube videos the lips were marginally out of sync with the audio. This issue didn’t impact other services I tried like Netflix, BBC iPlayer and Now TV. 

These are mega comfortable to wear too.

  1. Hi, I discovered your website a few days ago.
    I am very pleased with the quality and large scope of your previous reviews.

    Many thanks.

    Do you think it is much better than QC35 v1 sound wise, i can live without the dedicated button ?

    The only thing i really don’t like about Bose Connect is that BOSE still requires you activate Localisation/Tracking instead of just granting access to it in android.
    So any time i use this app, i have to remember to deactivate my gps (a battery killer) after that!!
