Bose QC35 headphones review

Last updated:  

The Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones offer unrivalled noise cancellation, great sound quality and superior comfort in the wireless headphones space.

The good

  • Super comfortable
  • Superior sound quality
  • Compact

The bad

  • Expensive
  • Intelligent features
  • Bluetooth issues

The QC 35 Series I headphones are the first wireless noise-cancelling entry from Bose. They offer almost unmatched sound quality and active noise cancellation. The headphones are light and super comfortable, meaning that you can wear them all day long and take advantage of the 20-hour battery life.

The only real difference between the Series I we've reviewed and the Series II is the inclusion of a dedicated virtual assistant button on the latter. Press the button and you'll get voice access to Google Assistant

Design

  • Cushioned ear cups are supremely comfortable
  • Playback controls are easily accessible on the right ear cup

Features

  • Integrated microphones make calling easy
  • 20-hour battery life
  • Bluetooth connectivity issues mar the experience

Verdict

The Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones offer unrivalled noise cancellation, great sound quality and superior comfort in the wireless headphones space. The price may scare off the average punter, but if you're in the market for benchmark audio quality and comfort, the Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones are in a class of their own.

Pricing and availability

The Bose QuietComfort 35 have a recommended retail price of $499.00. This price point puts them in the middle to top-end cost for noise cancelling over-ear headphones, which can cost anywhere from $180 to $799. For the price, you'd be hard-pressed to find better quality noise cancellation, though they've got some competition from the new Sony WH-1000XM2.
