Bose is known for making some of the best active noise cancelling headphones in the industry. In fact, the company’s QuietComfort QC25 headphones are our top pick in the noise cancelling category although the one shortcoming that some may have is the fact that they’re wired.
Now, that’s no longer a concern as Bose recently launched a wireless version dubbed the QuietComfort QC35.
Bose said its primary goal was to make its best headphones wireless without compromising the wireless technology and the audio quality they’re known for. Utilizing Bluetooth and NFC pairing, the new headset employs a dual microphone system for active noise cancelling.
They can be used either wirelessly or wired. When wireless, the headset offers 20 hours of listening on a single charge and 40 hours in wired mode although your mileage will no doubt vary based on listening volume and so forth. Should the cans run out of juice, you can continue to use them via the included wire albeit without active noise cancelling.
Engadget recently spent some hands-on time with the headset and was generally impressed. In a controlled setting, the publication said the noise cancelling worked like a charm and praised the audio performance.
The Bose QuietComfort QC35 headset is available as of writing in your choice of black or silver finishes priced at $349.95, a $50 premium over the standard QuietComfort QC25s.
