this was one of the things I aspired to own Over the past few years a Bose QC 25 has been my travel companion across many long haul flights So when Bose launched the QuietComfort 35 II I had to try it out The Bose QC 35 II is not much different from earlier versions of this noise cancelling headphone It is wireless and connects to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth and has really soft ear cup that makes these a pleasure to use for long durations The audio quality has not gone through a drastic change and is still best in class in my books It offers great depth and richness and lets you enjoy music as it is meant to be Hearing someone like Barns Courtney becomes an intimate experience it’s like he’s singing for you just you While there is a great music to be enjoyed on these headphones one reason I would have a QC35 is to just cut myself away from the surroundings using the noise cancelling Yes that is how I use noise cancelling on a daily basis The vacuum offered by Bose headphones is often a sanctuary that lets you think find space for yourselves With the QC35 II Bose is adding a new feature – Google Assistant at your fingertips quite literally The Google Assistant can be activated by touching the dedicated button on the left ear cup However you need to use the Bose Connect app to set it up and link the Assistant with the headphone But it’s an easy process and the app does most of it — I did it on an iPhone Long press activates the Google Assistant button and you can ask it anything from the weather to top news items on the Indian Express Long press

Assistant is set up it starts reading out incoming messages This is very helpful when you are working and the headphone alerts you about and even reads out messages you don’t want to miss In fact the Assistant reads out even Twitter notifications with links and all But if you are trying to enjoy your music the notifications can be a bit irritating so ensure you have only what you want being read out aloud Also if you don’t want to use the Assistant you can use the app to customise the button to activate noise cancellation The Bose QuietComfort 35 II is certainly among the best noise
