Bose and Google worked together on the exclusive experience in the QC35 II, making it the first integration of Google Assistant.

Bose has announced that its QC 35 II will be the first headphone to offer voice access to your Google Assistant.  It also now comes with settings to control the noise around you.

The QC35 II noise-cancelling headphones borrow all the performance and features from the original QC35 and claims to offer up to 20 hours of battery life.  The same controls remain on the right earcup – audio volume, and the multi-function button for incoming calls and accessing Siri.  And now, there’s a new Action Button on the left earcup to connect to the Google Assistant – without having to grab your phone, unlock it, and find the app.

 

Bose and Google worked together on the exclusive experience in the QC35 II, making it the first integration of Google Assistant in a headphone.

Like its predecessor, the QC35 II’s noise cancellation is fully activated when the headphone is on, but the Bose Connect App now lets you choose to keep it on (high), turn it down (low), or disable it completely (off).  The Connect App also lets you change the Action Button’s functionality, so you can control the noise settings from the earcup when you want, and switch back to your Google Assistant when you want.

The headphones will be available starting November 2 in Black and Silver, priced at Rs 29,363. The QC35 II’s Action Button will be available for markets where Google Assistant is available; in other markets, it will control noise settings only.  The QC35 II noise cancelling headphones will be sold at Bose retail stores, Boseindia.com and authorised Bose dealers.
