    Great way to drown out the outside world

    Sweating

    DESIGN: Bose has maintained a very similar design to the 1st generation of the QuietComfort 35. The headband portion has a soft underside that feels very comfortable resting on the top of my head. The band is also foldable which makes the QuietComfort 35 II easy to transport, although the included case is somewhat larger than many of the other over-the-ear headphones I’ve tested. The earcups are also very soft and comfortable around your ear, which is very important as you’ll likely be wearing these for long periods on an airplane or train. I still sometimes get the “ear sweats” and need to take a break from the headphones after wearing them for an hour or so to give my ears a chance to breath, but this is normal for me with any pair of headphones. The headphones are large and seem a bit bulky, but the sound quality makes up for it. SOUND QUALITY: With “Bose” on the label, you can safely assume sound quality is stellar. And it is with the Quiet Comfort 35 IIs. Bass has plenty of punch and the mids and highs are crips and clear. When the noise cancellation is active, you will hear a gentle white noise “hum” in the background as the unit counteracts the outside noises. It’s not very noticeable while listening to music, but you can tell it is there when listening to a podcast or talk show. NOISE CANCELLING One of the main reasons to pick up these Bose headphones is for their noise cancellation technology. Once you activate the noise cancellation feature, the sounds around you seem to disappear. And I’m not just talking about that fact that these cover your ears. Bose’s noise cancellation technology actively sends opposing sound to counteract the noise around you. Why’s this important? You can set the QC 35 IIs to a lower volume and still hear your music just fine, even in noisy environments. Normally, you would need to crank up the music to drown out your surroundings. So you can spare your ear drums and relax even if there’s a crying baby next to you. Now, if someone’s running a jackhammer next to you, it won’t completely eliminate the sound. But it does a great job of getting rid of the loud hum of an airplane or the clickity-clack of a train. There are two levels of noise cancellation: high and low. The feature can also be turned off completely. The “low” setting comes in handy when you still need to hear something going on outside, such as an airport announcement. Although, if it’s something important, you’ll probably want to turn off the noise cancelling feature completely. The noise cancellation feature can be controlled via Bose’s Connect app or you can assign the function to the “Action” button. FEATURES: Bose touts that the Bose QuietComfort 35s have Google Assistant built-in and can be accessed by pressing a new “Action” button on the left earcup. I assumed the headphones would just kind of “tether” my phone’s internet connection when using Google Assistant. However, the app for these headphones prompted me to install the full Google Assistant app on my iPhone in order to use the feature. I wouldn’t say that Google Assistant is “built-in” if the headphones are depending on my phone to actually run the Google Assistant feature. Which prompts another question: don’t most headphones already allow you to call up the voice assistant, be it Siri or Google Assistant? Indeed, you can hold the multifunction (middle) button on the QC 35s for one second and Siri will activate on your iPhone (or Google Assistant for Android). So what’s unique about Bose’s “Google Assistant built-in” offering? On Android, the voice interface is a little more verbose and will tell you who the text message is from instead of just playing the normal “ding” notification. For me, I reassigned the “Action” button to control the noise-cancellation feature instead, but heavy users of Google services may find the Google Assistant feature to be worthwhile. Aside from the Google Assistant feature, the Bose Connect app is very handy and walks you through the setup process and gives you a quick overview on using the QuietComfort 35 IIs. The app can also assist you in connecting additional Bluetooth devices, configuring the Action button, setting the noise cancellation and upgrade the firmware, which I needed to do upon receiving the headphones. The three buttons on the right ear cup allow you to control your music without getting out your phone. The middle button will play and pause your music (or answer an incoming phone call). Double-tapping the middle button skips forward to the next track while triple-tapping the middle button rewinds. Pressing the + and – buttons will increase and decrease the volume respectively. BATTERY LIFE Battery life is impressive and can last up to 20 hours in wireless Bluetooth mode or 40 hours when using the included audio cable. Charging the unit only takes two hours and can be recharged with a standard Micro USB cable. Upon powering on the QC 35 IIs, an automated voice will announce the current charge level. If the battery needs recharged while in use, you’ll hear, “Battery low, please charge now.” There is also a battery LED indicator on the right ear cup. Green indicates a medium to full charge, while a solid amber LED indicates that the charge is getting low. When it blinks red, it’s time to charge. If you’re using an iPhone, the battery level will also show on the status bar of your phone. OVERALL You can't beat the sound quality of Bose. The addition of Google Assistant seems gimmicky, but you can still summon Siri with these headphones, The noise cancellation feature is superb and makes these great for long plane or train rides.

    Fantastic headphones~!

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Listening to music, Noise cancellation, Price

    = Summary = The Bose QC35 Series II headphones are fantastic~!! It definitely lives up to all the hype & rave reviews and delivers great sound, dynamic range, awesome bass, and truly astounding active noise cancellation. In addition, it looks cool and is very comfortable to wear. = Design & Comfort = I have the black QC35 Series II and it looks sleek and sexy. Since it's black, it will blend in nicely with whatever clothing you wear and it won't stand out too much. To my delight, it was much lighter than it looked and is very comfortable to wear over the head for extended periods of time. The ear padding is very soft, well-padded, and doesn't cause any long-term fatigue or discomfort. I even wore it to bed and it was very comfortable (as long as you don't mind not being able to turn your head sideways). = Controls = The layout of the buttons are well-placed, easy to find, and intuitive to use. On your left earmuff, you have the Google Assistant button. On the right earmuff, you have the Power/Bluetooth pairing button as well as additional buttons for Volume Control and Playback Control. As expected, all the controls work very well and with no issues. = Google Assistant Button = The highlight of this new Bose QC35 Series II headphones is the presence of a dedicated button for Google Assistant (GA). I paired the QC35 to my Galaxy S8+ and found it to be pretty useful. A single-press of the GA button will tell you the time of the day and also notify you about any Notifications you have received. If you have Notifications, the headphones will read them aloud to you. You can also press-and-hold the GA button, speak a command to GA, and get responses delivered directly to your ears. I used the GA button often to check the weather, make calls to people, and send messages. I didn't have much success, though, when trying to send text messages to people via the GA button. The QC35 would correctly understand my command, confirm and read back my message to my recipient, but sometimes the delivery would fail in the end. If I use Google Assistant directly from my Galaxy S8+, everything works the first time. I'm hoping future app and firmware updates will improve the GA experience. With that said, having the GA button is very useful and helpful and I'm sure it'll only get better and faster. = Audio Quality & Noise Cancellation = When it comes to listening to audio, the Bose QC35 Series II is impeccable. It played back all the different kinds of music (rock, hip-hop, pop, rap) fabulously and flawlessly. From bass-heavy songs such as 50 Cent's Just a Lil Bit and In Da Club to full-range songs such as Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, the QC35 is a champ. Absolutely no complaints here. Making all this audio quality possible is the BRILLIANT active noise cancellation. All background distractions simply disappear and don't bother you from enjoying your music. I was sitting on my front porch listening to music because there is much noise here - gardeners working, delivery trucks driving by, birds chirping, dogs barking, etc. And I couldn't hear them at all~!! Especially impressive was when I missed hearing a medium-sized U-Haul truck driving into my street close to my driveway. Those kinds of trucks are usually very loud and clanky but the QC35 filtered it out wonderfully. Making all of this even more impressive is the fact that the volume on the QC35 was only set to ~60% loudness. One no longer has to crank up the volume at the expense of potentially damaging your hearing to filter out background noise & distractions. Brilliant. I also used the QC35 Series II to make and answer several calls and everybody said my voice came through loud and clear and good. I was told by one person that it sounded just as good as my Plantronics M180 bluetooth headset. = Conclusion = The Bose QC35 Series II is an absolute buy~! Great design and quality, great controls & comfort, SUPERB audio quality augmented by brilliant active noise cancelling, and topped off by the innovative and useful Google Assistant functionality baked in. I highly recommend it to all music lovers.

    Straight up my new favorite headphones

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Listening to music, Noise cancellation, Sound quality
    Cons mentioned:
    Sweating

    I’ve long been a fan of noise cancelling headphones, but it wasn’t until this past year that I really started appreciating the scope of their use. I traveled across the country on a crowded airplane. While thousands of people do this everyday, I can’t say that I was totally prepared for it the first time around. All the ambient noises really took their toll on me and one year later, when I flew for a second time, I had an excellent pair of noise cancelling headphones in-hand to make the flight bearable. At that time, I was rocking the Sony 1000X Wireless Noise Cancelling headphones and I never thought I would find a better, more comfortable pair of headphones. This past week, I was introduced to the QuietComfort 35 II headphones by Bose. I’ve been a fan of Bose products for many years because they have a reputation for designing great, high-end audio gear. I’m happy to say that the QuietComfort 35 II’s don’t disappoint and they really live up to the Bose quality name. UNBOXING The headphones arrived in a standard Bose branded box. The outside covering of the box included some basic details of the product in multiple languages. You will also notice the MFi icon along with the Android logo and the Google Assistant built-in graphic. The QuietComfort 35 II are the first Bose headphones to come with built-in Google Assistant support. That is in fact the biggest difference between the QuietComfort 35 II and the original version of the headphones according to Bose’s website. When you look at the specs of the two headphone models, you will see that they are nearly identical except for the weight (version II is 2.6 ounces heavier) and the fact that the original QuietComfort headphones come packaged with an airline adapter. The QuietComfort 35 II’s package includes a carrying case, charging cable, and audio cable. When you first open the box, you will see the carrying case. All the other pieces are tucked away inside. The case is built very well. There is an exterior mesh pocket that could be used for extra cables or even your smartphone. When you open the case, you will find another interior mesh pocket and the mail compartment where the headphones lay. They actually fold up in a very specific way, but Bose was kind enough to include a small illustration that shows you how to place them in the case. BUILD QUALITY The headphones are lightweight and flexible. I really like that the earpieces aren’t static and can swivel around a bit. It makes it easier to wear in my opinion. The headband extends easily and the materials used to build it feels very solid. The padding on the headband is probably the only thing I would change. It’s soft and comfortable to wear, but it’s covered in some sort of suede fabric, which leads me to think that over time, it will soak up sweat and other oils and wear down. I would have preferred to see this padding covered in leather instead. The inside of the ear pieces are marked with a “L” and “R” to show you which way to wear the headphones. One thing I noticed was that the actual speaker on the inside of the ear cup seems to be angled toward your ear. Many of my other headphones just have a flat speaker. I haven’t been able to find out this sort of orientation would affect sound quality or volume, but I am sure the design was done with purpose. The padding on the ear cups is very nice and seems to wear well. I did notice that the foam segments don’t pull off of the cups as magnets, but it does appear that they might snap off the ear cups. Not wanting to damage the foam, I didn’t try to pry them off. These headphones have physical switches on them which is a bit of an oddity these days. Most of the headphones I’ve been around lately seem to utilize touch controls (the Sony headphones only have touch controls). So, the tactile nature of the buttons and switches on the Bose headphones was a nice departure from what I was used to. I’m sometimes not a fan of physical switches because they will get caught on things like hoodies, but the on/off switch on the right ear cup was designed in such a way that it avoided that usual problem. In addition to the on/off switch, you will also find the volume up/down buttons, and the play/pause button on the right ear cup. On the left ear piece, you will find the Google Assistant/ANR settings button. On the bottom of the two earpieces, there is also a port for plugging in the Micro USB charging cable and the audio cable for a wired connection. Even though Micro USB has been a standard for quite some time for charging devices of this nature, I feel with a brand new product like this, Bose should have taken the opportunity to switch over to USB-C for charging. USER EXPERIENCE As soon as the headphones arrived, I paired them to my phone. They had 70% battery life out of the box, which made me happy that I could go ahead and start using them. I put the headphones on my head and found very quickly that they were more comfortable than my Sony headphones and they caused less strain on my head, too. I’ve used the headphones for a couple of days off and on and not had any issue with the battery life. The buttons and functions I were very easy to pick up on without reading the manual but for more in depth features, you will need to read the manual because they are not as intuitive as the ones listed above. For example you have no dedicated button for changing songs. For us iPhone users we can easily remedy this by simply pressing in and holding the play/pause button to activate Siri and asking her to switch to the next track or calling up a totally different album. All the Siri commands that work on your iPhone work via this button so no worries here. Even though I’ve only had these remarkable headphones for a few days, I’ve been incredibly impressed with them. The comfortable design and sound quality both live up to the Bose name. I’ve worn them for several hours and don’t perceive any earaches or headaches from wearing them too long. Making and receiving calls is pretty simple. making calls again takes the use of Siri. I found this to be super simple and had no issues with Siri hearing or understanding what I asked of her to do. I don’t currently have Google Assistant installed so the dedicated Google button was used for the ANR settings instead. The sound quality is amazing. I am hard of hearing and I didn’t have any issues with hearing music or spoken words. Music and sounds were crisp and dynamic. As noice cancelling headphones go, I really like how the Bose headphones block out ambient noise with little effort. I love that the noise canceling is activated by flipping a switch. I've not had the chance to use these on a plane yet like I did with the Sony's but with noise canceling turned up to high I can almost not hear anything else around me so I'm assuming they will work just as well if not better for travel. CONCLUSIONS I think the Bose QuietComfort 35 II are the best wireless headphones on the market right now. I’ve officially made the switch over to them as my primary listening companions. If you had the QuietComfort 35 that were released last year, I don’t know that the Google Assistant feature is enough to upgrade, but if you are using a different style or brand of headphone, I think you will be happy with the Bose QuietComfort 35 II.

    The Bose headphones are made to last. Quality components and construction. The Box includes a Carry bag, Aux cable and a charging cable. The headphones came charged (almost full) I downloaded the Bose app and connected to my phones. It was then I was notified of a firmware upgrade was needed. This took over 30 minutes. I would have hoped it was quicker as I was anxious to started using them. After they were updated I opened the app and was informed by the app that it can’t access my music to play my songs on my phone but I could come back to the Bose app after I started playing my music. I would hope that this would change with further updates to the Bose app. The app however will let you, Manage connections, Update, Share music with a friend who has another set of Bose headphone and can listen to their playlist, On to the fit: Fit was perfect for all of my family members from an 8 year old to a teen, then wife and my fat head. Sound: WOW, I have 3 sets of expensive headphones and the Bose headphones beat them hands down!! I now know I should have purchased these first and not wasted time and money with the others. I love these phones. The quality of sound makes you think you are at a concert. The low/mid and high tones hit perfect. I could even hear notes and sounds on some of my favorite music I hadn’t heard before. Bass?? Best Bass in the business when it hits you can feel it. I listened to my music for at least 4 hours while working and there was no ear fatigue at all (even though these are over the ear) some other brands after being used for longer periods do make the ear region uncomfortable, not these. The only issue I had was some sweating due to the leather on the ear pieces after using them for 4 hours non stop. A microfiber mesh added to the ear piece may cure this. But I am sure this would hurt the noise cancellation. The noise cancellation is pretty good. When playing music most all exterior sound is blocked. These are great for the office too if you want to block out any noisy coworkers. The on board buttons include, Volume up, down and pause, an assistant button when connected to your phone (Siri, Google) plus you can answer/hang up your phone. The headphones have a dual built in microphone. The battery life is about 20 hrs. The devices you can connect to via Bluetooth and NFC making getting started a snap. Range is about 30 feet for paired devices. SO I find these headphone very nice, comfortable and knock out sound. They are worth e very penny!! I would definitely recommend the Bose head phones to my family and friends.

    Bose QC 35 Not Worth The Money

    Posted .

    I'll get to the point. The Bose QC 35 headphones work well but only for a certain time. After about a 1.5 - 2 years the headphones malfunction. The problems with mine are as follows and drained the battery constantly making the headphones unusable: 1) Headphone auto turn on 2) Green light auto turns on If you only plan on keeping the headphones for 1 - 1.5 years then I think you'll be fine. But if you're like me and was expecting to pay a premium price for something that lasts, save yourself the pain and look somewhere else. The Bose warranty only lasts a certain time period so after that you're out of luck. Don't believe me, do some research on the web and you'll be shocked by the problems and lack of support by Bose.

    I have owned these headphones for a little over 2 years now and they have never given me trouble until now. One day while wearing them the hex screw that connects the right ear cup to the headband fell out and disappeared, nowhere to be found. After giving up on ever finding it I called bose customer support who informed me that because my warranty had expired the only thing they could do was send me a whole new headset for over 200 dollars, even though the only thing wrong was the missing screw. They do not sell product pieces. After some research and digging I later saw that this was a common issue and there isn't a good way to fix it due to the engineering of the headphones. Due to the swivel motion of the ear cups the hex screw slowly but surely loosen over time and usually will fall out not until after the warranty expires. And with no hope of finding a replacement due to the shape of the hex screw bose just waits for you to call them and have a brand new set shipped to you at the cost of your old set (which they will fix for less than a dollar), and a little over 200 dollars. Long story short, spend your money on quality headphones elsewhere that will actually last.

    Bose does it again!

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Listening to music, Noise cancellation, Sound quality

    Everyone knows or has heard of the legendary Bose Noise Cancelling headphones and their ability to shut out noise and the world. These QC 35s are the same as the previous model with one LARGE exception.. They have a dedicated button on the bottom of the left earcup to enable Google Assistant! Does it work? Absolutely! I use Google Assistant frequently on my newest Asian-built superphone and the integration is flawless. If you tap the button, it tells you the battery status and if you have any Google notifications. Hold it down and it operates the same as Assistant on your phone, except totally voice controlled. As I had already set my preferences in Google Assistant, asking it to tell you the news causes it to go through all my preselected channels. Same with weather and others. Most cool is the ability to just play whatever you want through Google Play Music! Too cool! Just ask to hear whatever your in the mood for, and there it is in all it's Bose QuietComfort glory! Don't use Google Assistant? Then the button can be assigned through the Bose Connect App to set the level of noise reduction. Have a fruity type of phone? You can still use the multi button on the right earcup to summon Siri! As I said, as far as the headphones themselves, they seem to have not changed with the exception of that action button, which is a good thing. The headband is soft alcantara material and the earcups are super soft. I wore these for several hours with no discomfort at all. I have a set of Bose in-ear noise cancelling headphones that I used on a 17 hour other side of the world flight and they performed outstandingly with just a little pressure on my ears. Can't wait to try these on an extended flight to drown out the constant hum of engine noise and passenger infused noise. As far as the noise cancellation so far on these is excellent! And the musicality is wonderful with a warm, not overly done sound. All the music that I tried sounded fantastic and mostly neutral. If you are looking for noise cancelling headphones, and are fully engaged with Google Assistant, there is not a better buy out there right now! Put these on and the noisy world just goes away! But you can still check the weather without having to lift your phone! How cool is that? Good Shopping!

    If you’re considering them, buy these headphones!

    Pros mentioned:
    Listening to music, Noise cancellation, Sound quality

    Bottom line: If you frequently travel by plane, commute, enjoy listening to music, or just want to escape a noisy environment, these headphones are for you. Pros: Excellent passive and active noise cancellation, full and balanced sound, easy to use and useful buttons, adjustable levels of noise cancellation, light and comfortable to wear, great battery life, voice over and Google Assistant built-in Cons: None except over-ear headphones not for everyone Review: Bose has the reputation of making the best noise cancelling headphones, and the QC35 IIs do not disappoint. You really need to use them to appreciate how much better everything sounds when not competing with the ambient noise around you. I mowed the lawn today, and enjoyed listening to my music without the distraction of the mower or dog barking down the street. Setup is a breeze with the Bose Connect app, and it allows you to adjust the functionality of the buttons conveniently located on the bottom of the ear cups. The left cup lets you adjust the level of active noise cancellation (high, low, off) and can alternatively be set to activate Google Assistant in the app. The right cup features the power/bluetooth connect button on the side and volume buttons on the bottom. The sound is full and balanced between highs, mids, and lows, and the headphones are fairly light and comfortable to wear for extended periods. Paired with excellent battery life and the ability to use the included wire, they are ideal for anyone who commutes. There are also several other features such as a noise cancelling mic for calls and built-in Google Assistant that just add icing to the cake. There are no real cons to speak of, but they do such a good job blocking noise, the initial experience may take some getting used to.

On the left earpiece, there is the Action button that can summon Google Assistant or toggle noise cancellation. The headband is adjustable and allows for a perfect height adjustments to fit any adult-sized head. A firm-sided carrying case is provided to protect your headphone investment. Inside is a small pocket to secure the included micro USB charging cable and the 3.5mm-to-2.5mm audio cable. iOS APP & GOOGLE ASSISTANT The Bose Connect app for iOS provides simple and intuitive access to the headphone's settings. There is also an Android app. Settings for the headphones include connections to different devices, the level of noise cancellation, and updating the firmware. To use Google Assistant, you must install the dedicated app for that service on your phone. The utility you'll get from this service will depend on your comfort level with sharing just about everything (contacts, calendar, etc) with Google. I allowed full access, and the assistant works really well. Most of the questions I asked got surprisingly quick responses. I checked weather, asked a celebrity's age, and checked a flight status. When I asked for news, I got an NPR quick brief. USE & PERFORMANCE The noise cancellation is very, very good. In fact, it is too good in some cases. Where many noise cancelling products are able to cancel droning and repetitive sounds, the QuietComfort 35 II headphones were able silence radio and television audio and even humans talking directly to me. So noise cancellation is truly excellent. The QuietComfort headphones earn their name. They're very lightweight and comfortable on the head and ears. I was able to listen to music for several hours barely aware they were on me. And the fit is secure. I tested them by jumping and running, and they held firmly and comfortably. That said, the materials probably are not designed for perspiration, but you can be confident they won't go flying if you have to jog up a flight of stairs. Bose provides a 3.5mm-to-2.5mm audio cable for optional wired listening, and they work as you'd expect. However, when connected by wire to my iPhone, the on-headset buttons no longer controlled playback or volume, adjustments had to be performed on my phone. Once back on a Bluetooth connection, everything immediately began functioning again. BOTTOM LINE The headphones are easy to recommend. The sound is so complete and pleasing, you can get lost in any audio you choose. The noise cancellation will keep the world away from you, too. They represent an investment, of course. But if you're picky about sound or you're a card-carrying audiophile, you will simply fall in love with these headphones. They are truly that good.

    Microphone

    If this didn't have a microphone feature, this would be an okay wireless headset... MICROPHONE I purchased this for video conferencing purposes. The microphone doesn't seem to be quality because my voice comes through very faint. I tried this for a video recording and played the video back to hear how I sounded. I also attempted to connect to my phone to speak to someone and they had a hard time hearing me. I wish there was a little mouthpiece that extended out from one of the cups. Or, they should think of adding a microphone to the cable that you can connect from the headset to your device in order to make it a wired experience. That might have worked really well. SILENCE The headset did a good job of blocking out outside noise. The only problem I had was that it actually produces its own white noise, static-like sound when the headset is turned on with no audio coming through, like if a video that I was listening to stopped playing. It was like a very faint skreeching noise. When I turned them off, the static sound stopped and it was truly scilent at that point. This was annoying because I don't want to have to turn off the headset everytime there is no audio for me to listen to and reboot it when I'm ready to hear audio again. COMFORT Oooh the headset ear cups felt sooo good in my hands. The material used felt very soft, so soft that I'll say that it was the best part of my experience. CONNECTIVITY I liked being able to switch from my ipod touch to my Mac to my Android phone. However, I was unable to connect to my Chromebook which was a major dissapointment. There is an app that needs to be downloaded to each of these devies for connectivity, and the app on my Chromebook never connected with the headset. Overall, I absolutely loved the design of the headset. The cups were perfectly designed. The Google Assistant worked. The sound quality was good. However, the microphone and connectifity needs some work to match the pricepoint.

    I wear them all day at work and they are both comfortable and sound great. I have it connected to my laptop and my iPad. I watch tv on my iPad, but when I get an IM or email on my laptop, it switches to the laptop playing the sound from there. They reach about 30 feet without disconnecting. Originally, I bought the Sony headphones that were priced the same. The Sony has better noise cancelling and cooler features, but the sound was terrible. The only comparison I can think of between the sound of the two is like the Sony is an AM radio while these are a CD player. I tried to adjust the settings of the Sony, but could not get them to sound anywhere near as good as these, but that is my impression. I ended up taking the Sony back after a couple of days to get these and have not regretted it a bit.

    I gifted myself this noise cancelling headphones and it didn’t disappoint. It’s comfortable and fits well. Sound is real crisp and its bass is very good. You will need to download the app to pair it with your bluetooth device. I got this on sale last Dec2018 for $289.

    For travel, Noise cancellation

    By all accounts I’m not a headphone junkie. I’ve generally just used earbuds. But recently I’ve been having to travel to California for work and ear buds on a 5 hour flight weren’t cutting it. I could barely hear my media with the roar of the engine. So I figured it was time to get a decent pair of headphones. Enter the limited edition midnight blue Bose QC 35 II. Worked perfectly on my next flight. Engine noise severely reduced. Headphones were comfortable. Used them with my Nintendo switch and literally forgot I was flying at times. Bluetooth and wired mode both worked well. Even used these for pc gaming and it was relaxing to hear only the game and not external noise. They come with a high quality hard shell case as well. Definitely recommend. Oh and the midnight blue is sick. It’s a very dark blue.

    Noise cancellation

    Several years ago I’d purchase a Bose QuietComfort 35 Noise Canceling Headphones and was very happy with them! Time and use however took their toll and I sought out another pair this time getting wireless as that was now available. I expected them to be as good as the previous set. Boy was I in for a surprise. This version was so much better had I known I wouldn’t have waited a single moment to purchase them. The noise cancelling works so much better in both directions; I can listen to anything in the middle of the night in bed without disturbing my my wife’s sleeping! I can listen to any music riding on my zero turn lawn mower and enjoy every beat! Beyoncé in the sun is sublime. I can link tunes from just about any Bluetooth source even my Apple Watch! I find this headset fantastic!!!

    Listening to music, Noise cancellation, Sound quality

    These headphones are like no others that ive ever had. Bose really knows how to step it up in quality. They are really comfortable and not to heavy. They cover the entire ear and the noise cancelling is like no other. We had a big fan blowing and when I clicked the button the noise completely stopped and the music was Crystal clear! I love that these came with a protective case and extra pockets for longer cords if needed. The headset adjusts to fit your ears and head perfectly. When the music plays that's all you hear, no unwanted noises in the background, just the beats and song that you're playing. I also love the fact that I can have a phone call come through and hear everything clear while keeping my hands free to do what I need around the house. These headphones also have Google assistant which is another plus! I totally recommend these to music lovers like myself! Absolutely fantastic.

    Noise cancellation, Sound quality

    I'm just a girl who needs music to calm me, to motivate me, or I just like to listen to my shows. I'm not a know it all. I'm not going to come into this review with all of the specs 100% accurate. I'm here to tell you about my experience. Simply because I loved these headphones so much. So here's the deal. Hook up was a breeze. I didn't even really look at the instructions. They are there for that reason but the connection is basically turn on your Bluetooth and search for the headphones lol. I did download the app. It makes everything so easy. I took a few screenshots that I hope to share here. Anyways.. I am a mom of 3 kids and girlfriend to someone who acts like a kid. I also home school mom. Noise canceling is one of my favorite options lol. As a matter of fact, as I type this, the sweet soft sounds of Norah Jones are somehow managing to shut out the sounds of football screaming stuff. Last night I fell asleep to the sounds of rain over a video game. You can choose to set the noise canceling to Low, High, or Off. Even low works extremely well. Being a mom, 2 of my favorite things are hearing and not. With these, I hear only what I want lol. I like how comfortable that they are as well. The design is unique. I do not feel like I'm being squished and the head band that touches the top of my head even has a soft support to provide comfort. The durability is awesome. I have fallen asleep with these bad boys on to tune out my boyfriend playing Xbox and it works.. even with rain sounds or soft music like Norah Jones. I love going to sleep listening to rain sounds and these are wow. I love it.Watching recorded videos on my phone made me feel like I was there. Super intense lol phone calls are pretty good. The person on the other end couldn't tell I was using headphones to talk. I think the sound on my end differed when I changed the noise cancelation from low, high, and off. Either way it was a nice way to talk hands free and no ear buds popping out or even the speaker phone option. The charging was pretty simple. They come with a cord and charge quickly. They also stayed carged really well. I have charged them twice and used them for a full week of music, phone calls, movies, and sleep wounds. Si that alone is awesome! Bose products are pretty simple to use as far as buttons go. 3 basic buttons. Volume up and volume down. The one in the middle serves as press once for pause. Twice to skip forward and 3 times to skip back. I absolutely loved everything about these. From the sounds of everything I listened to, the comfort, the noise cancelation, and even the carrying case. I would most definitely recommend these to anyone and everyone!
