The design of the Bose QuietComfort 35 is similar to its predecessor, the QC 25. The design of the oval ear cups is simple and not so fashionable as compared to some other products on the market.
These headphones are available in only two colors, silver and black. On each of the ear cups there’s a Bose logo.
The earcups are connected with a well-padded headband, and the headphones sit on your head comfortably. This is mainly because the weight of the ear cups is nicely distributed and also because of the cups high quality of cushioning. The headphones can be worn for long periods of time without hurting the ears.
There is a 2.5mm jack on the left earcup for connecting the wire to your device. The rest of the buttons are on the right earcup where you’ll find a power slider, micro USB charging port, and buttons for pause and play, skipping and the volume up and down buttons (which are compatible with both iOS and Android).
Pairing the QC35 is very easy. You have to slide the power slider to the very right to put the headphones in pairing mode, and then you can select them from phone or laptop’s Bluetooth menu.
If your phone comes with NFC then you can connect your headphones by putting them in pairing mode and tap the rear of your phone with the headphones.
QC35 has a very good battery life. The headphones will last 20 hours when operating wirelessly according to Bose, which can be extended to 40 hours when used as a pair of wired headphones. The headphones last several days of on and off use before needing a recharge.
Whenever the headphones are turned on, they play a short audio notification of the remaining battery and the device the headphones are connected to.
The headphones also include a mic allowing them to be used as a headset for making calls and noise-cancelling technology is used on the mic to eliminate background noise.
The QC35s lack AptX support but their wireless performance doesn’t feel mediocre at all. The sound they deliver is lovely and rich with no flatness in the sound profile.
These headphones have a soundstage that is remarkably broad, and when paired with a high-quality recording you can very easily feel engulfed by the sound.
The main feature of Bose QuietComfort 35 is the noise cancellation and it’s good as ever.
Like most of the noise-cancelling headphones, the best at canceling out constant low frequencies are the QC35’s rather than higher-pitched office noise, but even that is drowned out by the padding on the earcups to a certain extent.
The Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones pursue their goal to push the industry’s best noise cancellation to new limits and now they are doing so without wires. The QuietComfort 35 delivers top-notch noise cancellation and excellent Bluetooth audio.
The Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones sound every bit as good as their wired headphones offering all of the convenience of wireless headphones with none of the drawbacks.
