This baby is the first version we’re talking about, and there’s a new, updated one on the market. However, the prices aren’t really that far apart, and in some cases, even the same. That’s because nothing much has changed drastically, and they’re both great in their own light. They’re both wireless and noise-canceling and share the color palette. But we’ll talk more about that in just a little bit. Before we go further, do you like the black color, or maybe a silvery note to it? If so, you’ve found a great pair of headphones for yourself. Let’s see what specs of Bose QuietComfort 35 have to offer:
First up, and as we already mentioned – they’re wireless. It was a surprise for us as well, as Bose has been the king of noise-canceling up until now. Their previous model had unrivaled features, and they decided to ditch the wires now. You probably wish you can get rid of long cables and tangling of headphones. That’s why not only in case of these but also Bose SoundSport Wireless, they decided to ditch ’em. And it’s the right decision, in our opinion, because nothing has been removed in that process, and they’re as great as ever.
So, it’s the right time and place for this change. Because battery life has been getting better not only in headphones but in smartphones as well. You won’t run out of power in the middle of the work. You will surely enjoy music for an extended period of time. Pairing has been brought to a whole new level with Apple AirPods, and that’s the case here too. With NFC technology to serve your wish, it’s all effortless and easy. Now that you’re sure it’s worth your time, let’s go ahead and see the visual part.
Bose QuietComfort 35 visual features are very reminiscent of the previous model. It’s very simple, yet sleek in design, although not the most fashion-forward headphones you’ll see. The logo on the sides isn’t completely flat, but slightly raised when you go over it with your finger. Don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt the whole look, and you’re proud of the brand, aren’t you? The headband on top of your head will fit you nicely and comfortably because it’s padded. Overall, a very pleasant experience with these when worn for a prolonged period of time. Now – the controls. On the left side, you’ll find a 2.5mm jack to connect it with a wire if that fits you better. We’d advise against it unless you ran out of battery juice and the power outlet is far away. On the right side is where the magic happens.
You’ll find micro USB ports to charge them, power button, and buttons to control the volume, pause or skip. A great thing about these – they work with both Android and iOS devices as well as PCs. The best thing about these besides how easy it is to pair them (via Bluetooth or NFC, depending on your device) is the battery life. For a price of Bose QuietComfort 35 – about $350 without a discount, you’ll get a bang for your buck. It’s about 20 hours of playtime when used wirelessly, and it climbs twice as much when used with a wire.
