    The Best Headphones Get Even Better

    As a frequent traveler and a longtime user of Bose QuietComfort headphones, I was very excited to learn that Bose was finally bringing wireless capabilities to its QuietComfort line with this QC35 model. Bose's legendary noise-canceling technology is now free of wires, yet continues to deliver the same stellar performance that I've grown to love. OVERVIEW: - Setup is incredibly simple, especially if you download the Bose Connect app to your smartphone. Simply turn on the headphones, enable Bluetooth on your device, and complete the pairing process. You will hear a voice from the headphones confirm that pairing was successful. - Two devices can be connected to the headphones via Bluetooth at the same time. Use the Bose Connect app or toggle the power switch on the headphones to switch between devices. - Volume and function controls are built directly into the headphones (on the right ear cup. You can easily move between songs, pause playback, or even enable Siri with the function button. - There is a built-in, rechargeable battery. Gone are the days of having to carry around spare AAA batteries. The battery can be recharged with the included micro-USB cable. GOOD: - Again, dead-simple setup. I would highly recommend using the Bose Connect app to manage all of the Bluetooth devices that you connect to your headphones. - Great battery life. Bose claims that a single charge will power the headphones for 20 hours, and that seems accurate to me. Over Memorial Day weekend, the headphones lasted me two 4-hour flights, plus a few hours spent sitting in the airport each way. By the end of the weekend, I still had over 30% battery remaining. - Nice wireless range. I don't lose connection to my iPhone until I'm almost 40 feet from it. Range should be more than adequate for anyone. - You can still connect these headphones to any device with a standard 3.5mm audio jack. Bose has included a standard 3.5mm audio cable that connects easily to the headphones. - The built-in microphone and volume/function controls work seamlessly with iOS devices. You can use Siri, make phone calls, and control your music without ever touching your iPhone. - Light yet sturdy construction. They are extremely comfortable to wear for long stretches of time, yet the overall build quality still feels very substantial. If you've ever used or tried on a pair of QC25s, you'll feel right at home. - Of course, the noise-canceling technology is just as good, if not better, than it's ever been. The headphones canceled out all traces of engine noise and crying babies during my two recent 4-hour flights. - I'm certainly no audiophile, but the sound quality is excellent for me. Vocals are crisp and clear, bass is rich and deep. Volume gets plenty loud if you really want to give your ear drums a work-out. COULD BE BETTER: - The included carrying case is nice, but it feels a bit cheaper or flimsier compared to the case for my QC25 headphones. Time will tell how this case holds up, but I'm sure it will be fine for throwing in a carry-on bag. BAD: - Nothing. OVERALL: That's right, I have nothing bad to say about these headphones. Bose has hit another home run with the QuietComfort 35 headphones. For frequent travelers, or for those who simply like to enjoy their music/audio in peace and quiet, you won't find anything better. I'm sure there are other headphones on the market that audiophiles will point to with "better" sound quality, but that's not what I was in the market for. The QuietComfort headphones have always delivered an all-around complete package: excellent sound quality, design, function controls, and industry-leading noise-cancellation. And now, finally, this is all available without a wire hanging down your side. HIGHLY recommended.

    Better than all others I tested, including V-Moda

    I tested multiple headphones for weeks, and finally decided on the V-Moda Crossfade Wireless in the Magnolia section of Best Buy. I had to order them however, and while they were being shipped Bose came out with the QuietComfort 35. As soon as I listened to the Bose I new they were serious competition for the V-Moda's, and so I purchased the QC 35's and have tested both pairs for the last few weeks. Here are my observations: Features: Bose QC 35 wins hands down. When you turn on the V-Modas, you hear a voice that says, "Connected." When you turn on the QC 35's, it says, "Battery at 70%. Connectted to . Connected to iPad" (for example). The Bose can automatically power down after a period of inactivity (if you choose), the V-Moda's cannot. And the Bose has 20 hours of battery life, the V-Moda's have 12. App Support: Bose wins. The V-Moda's don't have an app. The Bose has an app that allows you to rename your headphones (by suggesting fun names such as Roast Beats), manage your connected devices, view the user manual, update the firmware of the headphones (I did this one minute ago and it worked flawlessly), set the Auto Power-Down interval, toggle Voice Prompts, and a few other things. Comfort: Bose by a mile. There's a reason that many Crossfade reviews suggest that you buy the optional ear cushions. After a short while they are uncomfortable on your ears, but the QC 35's provide hours of comfort, with no pressure on your head or ears. Style: V-Moda's win here. The ear cup shields are customizable and the overall fit is designed to minimize any gaps between your head and the headphones. The Bose are fine but nothing to write home about. Functionality: Another Bose win. While wearing the headphones, you can easily feel the volume and function buttons. With the V-Modas you have to search for them because they are flush and don't have the satisfying feel of the Bose buttons. Audio quality. Here I thought the V-Modas would win. But after extensive listening I'd rate this a tie. They each have their own individual sound signature with enjoyable levels of bass and treble. These are high quality headsets and you'll have to compare for yourself. I like that Bose has an EQ that makes music listened to at low levels sound as full as music listened at higher volume. But the V-Modas play music at a higher maximum volume. Conclusion: By now you can see that the QC-35's are superior to the CrossFades, and I haven't even mentioned Bose's secret sauce - noise cancelling. It's wonderful in so many applications, from allowing me to focus on my work in the office, to keeping me sane while the kids are screaming like banshees. The Wall Street Journal just reviewed 7 or 8 top selling wireless noise cancelling headphones, and *none* were close to the QC-35's ability to cancel unwanted noise. I hope this review was helpful, and now if you'll excuse me I'm going to slip back into my own little quiet, peaceful world, compliments of the Bose QuietComfort 35.

    Outstanding Sound Quality and Noise Cancellation

    These Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones provide a stellar alternative to using speakers or traditional headphones to listen to music. This is a bit of a lengthy review because I think it’s important to understand what you’re actually getting for the money here. First of all, some basics. This is a wireless/Bluetooth headphones system with a fine operating range - I got uninterrupted reception throughout my house. They charge using a standard USB port (cable included). And even though they are intended for Bluetooth use, the case includes a cable with a standard 3.5 mm connector and an adapter designed so that these headphones can be used with airplane sound sources. It was very easy to pair my devices with the headphones. As soon as I paired the headphones to my iPod for the first time, my iPod prompted me to install the appropriate Bose Connect app - pairing with an Android device was also simple but I needed to install the app myself. And it is worth noting that these headphones can be paired with two devices simultaneously and can remember 8 different devices for pairing overall. When the headphones are turned on, they pair with your devices automatically (and there’s a synthesized voice that speaks the name of the paired devices so clearly that it is still a bit jarring). The headphones have two controls on the right earpiece (see photos). One control is a switch that turns the device on/off and can also activate a Bluetooth pairing signal. The other control includes volume up/down and has a multipurpose button that can be used to answer/ignore calls (when the device is paired with a Bluetooth phone) and to move forward or back tracks when playing music. Yes, the headphones act as a handsfree device for a phone! But let’s get to the serious parts. The headphones are light but they feel very well made (not delicate). The pads that surround your ears are very comfortable and cut out a lot of exterior noise - but these headphones also include Bose’s active noise cancellation system - they electronically extract the noises on the outside of the headphones. Not reduce - extract! The noises that surround you vanish - you can be close enough to your vacuum to feel the vibrations, through the floor, in your body but you won’t hear the motor running - more importantly, you can fly on a plane and the headphones remove the engine noises from your listening environment. It is difficult to describe how well Bose’s electronic noise cancellation system works to someone who has never experienced it - it can’t kill-off 100% of loud noises but the amount it cancels feels more like sorcery than clever electronics. You lose awareness of your environment so suffice it to say that these headphones might not be suitable for someone who is easily startled - I would never consider wearing these while riding a bicycle in traffic. But they should be indispensable for frequent flyers. So through physical and electronic noise cancellation, these headphones isolate you from the world around you so you can focus on your listening experience. And the listening experience is very, very nice! The mark of a great sound system is its ability to reproduce low frequency sounds clearly and cleanly at low volumes. And the sound in these headphones is surely clear and clean. Music comes across without discernible distortion from either the Bluetooth transmission or the internal amplification. High frequencies don't sound clipped and low frequencies are clear without sounding forced or muddy. And I can’t even remember the last time I was able to hear music in its full stereophonic glory without the distractions of the noise pollution that surrounds me at home and at work. It is difficult to quantify clarity but while listening to a recording of a piano concerto, there was a moment when just the pianist was playing very quietly and I could actually hear the movement of the dampers in the piano as she pedaled (for a moment, it sounded like the piano was breathing). So….long story short….these sound great! They are made by Bose so I expected them to sound great - but the overall experience of listening to music with these headphones is tied-in with the noise cancellation technology. It’s a game changer. It allows you to listen to music in a quiet place by removing the noise and distractions that surround you. It isolates you so you can enjoy your music. The only downside: flaws in recorded music become annoyingly clear (distortion in the recording, loss from using bad compression rates for mp3’s, surface noise on records that you couldn't hear before over the air conditioning, etc.). And you need to be aware of your surroundings if you sing along with your music - since you can't really hear yourself, your singing volume can escalate pretty quickly. Comes with a well-designed, protective case.

    Bose is the one to beat

    Bose proves once again why they are the one with a target on their back. Build quality, function and sound quality are second to none on the Bose QC 35. As a background comparison, I have previously owned earbuds for the most part but I have had a pair of Monster DNA on-ear headphones for the past couple of years along with some Sennheiser over the ear wireless headphones that are connected to the PS4. So I have some history with large headphones and I have sampled the Beats headphones at the store. Honestly, I've never had headphones that have as much range and clarity as the QC 35. During my review of these I played Rap, Classic Rock, Modern Rock, Country, EDM (techno for the older crowd), Acoustic rock, live concerts and Reggae! Every type of music I tried seemed suited to these headphones. The bass wasn't overwhelming like on other brands. Vocals were crisp and it seemed like I could hear instruments I never noticed before on the music. If you prefer more bass, it's easy enough to add. I went into my Google Music Player and adjusted the bass setting to max. It added the thump I wanted on some songs but it still didn't overpower everything else. As far as build quality, these things are solid but lightweight. Material is primarily plastic but these do not feel cheap. The leather on the headphones is incredibly soft and comfortable against the skin. There is a small cushion on the inside top of the headband for further comfort. Yet these sit relatively close to the head for over the ear headphones which is nice. Bose was also nice enough to put a big R and L on the mesh inside the headphones so you know which way they go. The headphones come nicely packaged. When you open the QC35 box you'll see a leather carrying case that is surprisingly small. When you open it you see why. Bose has found and created a specific way to fold these headphones to take up minimal space. Inside the carrying case is also a double prong airplane adapter. Airplane has a more modern jack? No problem, one of the prongs folds down to give you a single 90 degree adapter. Also in the case is a USB A/ USB B adapter to charge the headphones because the rechargeable battery is built in compared to prior models that ran on a AAA battery. If that concerns you, I can tell you that I have not charged these since I got them. When I first turned them on the voice told me they were at 70%. After about 2 hours of listening to music at a pretty good volume and also making some calls and trying out the different ways to connect them to my phone....I'm only at 60%. So I'm assuming that they drain in the 5% per hour range. I wasn't able to kill the battery but previous versions have allowed you to continue using the headphones, albeit not with as great of sound, once the battery was dead by using the included headphone wire. Setup was simple. If you have a phone that is NFC enabled, just make sure NFC and Bluetooth are turned on, then tap the edge of right headphone against your phone. You'll hear a confirmation voice prompt and you're on your way. If you don't have NFC, the bluetooth setup is also easy. Just push the power button over to the right and it will activate the bluetooth scan before snapping back into the On position. My phone picked it up within seconds. There are some other buttons on the headphones that used to be on an inline cable on previous iterations of the Quiet Comfort line. Volume Up and Down are on the back of the right earphone. They are separated by a multi-function button. This will pause music if hit once and also un-pause if you tap it again; skip to the next track if you double click it; and answer the incoming phone call if you have call audio enabled. There is also a built in microphone. I tested this feature and the audio was clear with no complaints on the other end about voice quality. One other quick note on phone calls, if a call comes in the music will automatically pause and automatically resume once the call is done or once you ignore the call. If you work in an office cubicle environment that allows headphones or you travel a lot, these are remarkable. Even if you're not playing music, the active noise cancelling is a huge feature for me. I'm not sure what else I can tell you about the Bose Quiet Comfort 35. If you've never owned a pair of Bose headphones and have been on the fence because you didn't want to use a wired connection to your phone or an inline mic for making calls, then here you go. If you've owned Bose, you know the quality. These are, simply put, the best headphones I have ever put on my head and I would recommend these to anyone and everyone.

    Starting off the packaging it is done very well. Its simple yet well protected. Everything is laid out in a way that keeps things apart so they don't scratch each other, but still fit into a box that is only 8 ½ by 6”. In the box are the headphones in a very nice carrying case, a short USB charging cable, a 2.5mm to 3.5mm cable, a Quiet Comfort Airline adapter, Quick start reference insert, manuals in multiple languages, and some warranty info with how to register your product. The headphones themselves are made of a sturdy matte black plastic that looks awesome. I've always loved the look of matte black. They fold up very nice to fit into the carrying case. They have very nice soft comfortable ear cups that feel great and twist. The headband is fully adjustable and even fit my large head with room to spare. The top of the headband has the same soft material as the ear cups. This all combines for a very comfortable fit. When I first got them I connected them to my laptops USB port to charge. There is an LED that blinks amber while it charges, and turns solid green when full. This also tells you the amount of battery left while using them. The first charge took about an hour and 10 minutes to charge the headphones to full. They are listed at having up to 20 hours of battery per charge. So I don't expect to ever run out of juice on a typical day of using them. They have a power/ slider button to connect via Bluetooth, or NFC. A volume control Up and down, as well as multi function middle button for skipping forward and backward. When I first put them on I was immediately amazed at the noise reduction. I run a fan in my room and I couldn't hear it at all. Ive never had any headphones that completely drowned out background sound like this. Next I turned them on and there was a voice giving me the battery percentage saying “Battery at 100%, Ready to Pair”. I turned Bluetooth on my Galaxy S7 on, saw the Bose QC35 as a device and clicked to connect. I was then told audibly it was paired to Galaxy S7. Since it has NFC I decided to test that as well. All I had to do was tap my device to the NFC logo on the Bose and it connected again via Bluetooth. In the instructions it talks about the app called Bose Connect. So I went to the app store and downloaded it. It has a very simple drag to connect feature in the app. I was able to drag on my screen and it instantly reconnected to my S7. And within the app there are also some different settings and things you can do with your Bose headphones. Now of course we are talking about headphones here so onto the sound. Due to Bose having a reputation of amazing sound I was expecting them to sound good, but sound this clear is something new to me. I tested them listening to my music stored on my Galaxy S7. The sound is amazing. I have never heard music sound this great. Extremely clear with plenty of Bass where it needs it. Highs, Lows, and Mids are all there with no sound lost, or any frequency drowning out another. Certain songs had left to right separation I wasn't even aware of until now. And as mentioned before almost all outside noise is gone so you can enjoy the music even more. Bose really nailed it here. So if you cant already tell I really love these headphones. The ease of connecting, combined with comfort, a nice carrying case, and of course unbelievable sound make for an amazing product. If you are looking for top of the line sound in a versatile and well made headset look no further. The Bose Quiet Comfort 35 is the one to get.

    Immerse yourself in your own little audio world

    While using these Bose QuietComfort 35 (QC35) Wireless headphones, it feels like you have found a way to keep the rest of the world out (for the most part) of your ears while you are listening to your music, watching a movie or a video, or pretty much anything else to do with sound. It is a soothing and relaxing experience using these headphones, which allows you to immerse yourself in your own audio environment. With each increase of the volume, the more immersive the experience becomes. When I first put the headphones on (with the power on) without any audio being played through them, certain sounds (like a ventilation fan or a refrigerator) just disappeared, as if whatever is making the sound is not there. Once you have audio going through the headphones, you slowly drown out all other sounds around you, no matter how close they are to you. Connecting a new device to the headphones is super easy, just pull on the power switch all the way towards the Bluetooth symbol to the right, and you will hear an audio prompt from the headphones which states “Ready to pair” or “Ready to pair to another device” if you were already connected to one or two devices. Access the Bluetooth menu from your device to locate the “Bose QuietComfort 35” and simply connect to them. If you were already connected to two devices when you perform the above action, the last connected device to the headphones will be disconnected so you can pair the headphones to a new device. You are able to connect up to two devices concurrently, this is very convenient because you don’t have to constantly disconnect from one device to connect it to another device. If your device supports it, you can also use NFC (Near Field Communication) to easily pair the headphones and a smartphone by simply touching both devices together. In order for this to work, you must touch your device to the right side of the headphones and you might have to move your smartphone around a bit until you hear a beep from your smartphone, followed by a prompt on your device, confirming whether or not you want to pair the devices. The connection between your device and the headphones is established via Bluetooth, but this method simplifies it for you, so you don’t have to navigate through your menus until you find the section that controls your Bluetooth adaptor for your smartphone. When the headphones are turned on, an audio prompt provides the current battery level in a percentage and will automatically connect to your devices while stating the names of the devices that it is connected to. If the name of a device does not contain spaces or contains dashes (ex. USER-LAPTOP-ONE), the headphones will enunciate each letter of the device’s name. When multiple devices are connected, the headphones will monitor the sound output of each connected device. So say you are listening to music from your smartphone, but you want to watch a quick video clip on your laptop, if you press play on the video while listening to music from your smartphone, you will not hear the audio from the video until you pause the music. The same applies the other way around. If you are listening to something from your computer, and start playing music from your smartphone, you won’t hear the music until you pause whatever is producing the audio from your computer. If you connect the provided 3.5mm to 2.5mm audio cable to your headphones, the Bluetooth functionality is temporarily disabled until the cable is unplugged from the headphones. If the cable is disconnected, the headphones will act similar to when they are being powered on, stating the power level and the devices connected via Bluetooth. If the battery is completed depleted, the headphones can still be used like a regular pair of headphones, just connect the audio cable to your device from your headphones, that’s it. Charging the headphones is super easy, just connect the Micro USB side of the cable into your headphones and the USB Type A male connector into a computer or an adaptor that supports a USB cable. All the cables and the headphones can be easily carried around with the included carrying case. The case comes with an airplane audio adaptor and a dedicated slot for it, so that the headphones can be used on airplanes. The headphones are made for extensive use, while maintaining a lightweight form factor, so that you can easily use these headphones for hours on end. I would personally recommend these headphones to anyone looking for a quality built set of headphones with the ability to immerse yourself in your own little audio world. Once you try a set of Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless headphones, it’s hard to try anything else because they will set a new standard for you when it comes to listening to music, watching a video/movie, all while keeping the distractions that are in your environment, out of your ears.

    Incredible sound and great noise cancellation

    I've had these headphones for over a month now and my first impression is "WOW!". The first time I put them on, I wore them for 3 hours straight; I actually forgot I had them on. I'd always wanted a pair of Bose QCs but I kept talking myself out of them because of the price. Now I'm kicking myself. Granted, I got these as part of a review program, but the sound is incredible and the noise cancellation is great. I recently wore them while I was working at my house with a crew of roofers on my roof. I didn't even know they were done until the foreman almost broke the door down knocking (I didn't hear him the first 4 times)... and no, I did not have the volume cranked, the noise cancellation was just doing it's thing. Right out of the box, I effortlessly paired the Bose QC35s with my Galaxy S4 using the Bluetooth only method. I then unpaired them and had them repaired even quicker using the NFC method. When paired with my phone, the sound is absolutely great; even calls sound good, and I'm told that my voice comes through on the other end loud and clear. I then tried to pair the headphones with an ASUS G75VW laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium with builtin Bluetooth, an HP desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium with a BT4.0 USB dongle , and a Surface Pro 3 running Windows 8.1 with builtin Bluetooth. Pairing with the Surface Pro 3 was simple and the sound was great. Pairing with the laptop and desktop was about as painful as painful can be. I am definitely not a computer novice, but for about a week, I was unable to pair the headphones with either the laptop or the desktop. After contacting both manufacturers and Bose several times with not much help, I was finally able to reach some at Bose that was at a higher level than the first level you reach when you first call Bose support. I turned control over to the CSR on the desktop remotely and after about an hour, he was able to pair the headphones with the desktop. The sound was great, until I tried to select the headphones as the recording device (using the mic). When I did so, the sound became 'tinny'. I don't blame the headphones for this, but the drivers for Win7. Similarly, when I was finally able to pair the headphones to the laptop (I did this on my own and the process is way too complicated to include here), the sound was great until I tried to use the mic portion of the headphones (eg. with a VOIP program), and then the sound became 'tinny'. Again, this is not a reflection on the headphones, but the horrible drivers and Bluetooth integration on older Windows OS's... I just thought it was important to include since Win7 is still in use. With all of the pairing info out of the way, overall, I'll just say I love these headphones. Again, I primarily use them with my phone, and for that reason alone, I'd buy them tomorrow. I mainly use them when I'm working (I'm a developer). They are extremely light and they have never made my ears sweat. I can work in the same room with several people; their conversation nor the TV ever bother me. I've even used them when I'm mowing a 6 acre lot at my house and even then they're great although I do I have to crank the volume a bit because it's a zero-turn mower and I'm right in-front of the 26 HP motor. The volume controls and multi-function button took a little getting used to, but nothing that would stop me from recommending these to anyone. If you're looking for a great pair of noise cancelling headphones, I don't think you could go wrong with these.

    BOSE QuietComfort 35 II Quick Features on the Product Premium sound Wire-free World-class noise cancellation Noise-rejecting mic array for clear calls Unlock more features with the Bose Connect App Google Assistant built in Up to 20 hours per charge (40 hours wired) What's in the box? QuietComfort 35 II Hard carrying case USB charging cable Audio cable (for wired listening) Setup/Testing/Conclusion I am first going to start off with the packaging of the product. The product comes in a pretty standard box. But once you open up the standard box… You get to see the nice hard case that is encasing your QuietComfort 35 II. The case is well made and it’s relatively durable to house your QuietComfort 35 II. Along with the QuietComfort 35 II and the hard case, you also get the USB charging cable and audio cable (for wired listening). What is interesting is you don’t get any quick start guide or warranty information like you normally get when you buy an electronic. The inside of the box does instruct you to download the Bose Connect App and you’re pretty much ready to go! So after downloading the app I proceeded to connect the QC35 II with my Google Pixel. For some odd reason it took 5 attempts before I could connect them to the app. After successfully connecting them to the app I had some trouble getting Google Assistant to work. Well, after turning the QC35 II on and off a total of 7 times I was able to get everything working. I’m not sure if it was the app or not but I definitely had some trouble here… But after getting everything working the app gives you a great tutorial of the buttons and how to work everything including Google Assistant. The Bose Connect app gives you the battery percentage, noise cancellation level and auto-off timer. The app is pretty basic and I don’t see a way to mess with any equalizer settings or “preset sound setting/themes” like extra bass, concert, club, etc… I went ahead and played some music with high bass. I mean… They’re BOSE, you gotta try them out with something that has high bass. The QC35 II definitely doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the bass quality. Sound quality is also excellent and vocals are clear. I also tested these out on a movie and it definitely performed well here as well. They are also very lightweight and easy to fold away so it's a plus for traveling. Along with being lightweight and easy to fold away, they fit very comfortably on my big ears. I also put them on my spouse which has smaller ears and she also said they were comfortable. So it doesn’t matter if you have big or small ears, they fit comfortably on either. So with all these positives that I’m giving it… Unfortunately I do have a negative for the QC35 II. In my personal opinion I feel like the build quality is not as great as I’d like them to be for the MSRP. I have a wide range of headphones from the price of $200 ~ $600. The QC35 II definitely performs really well but when it comes to the build quality I feel like they are comparable to the lower end range. It seems like the QC35 II is constructed with a lot of plastic. But again this is my personal opinion as others may not feel the same. Overall, I still give this product a 5 star. If it were possible I’d give it 4 and a half. The performance of the QC35 II is definitely well worth it. If you can look past the build quality it’d definitely be a 5 star product. I mean look… I’m sure they’ll have these at your local Best Buy so why not head over there and try them out for yourself? You definitely won’t be disappointed.

    I would recommend this to a friend
