De­sign & com­fort

Bose sticks with its sig­na­ture QC25 de­sign, mak­ing these ny­lon cans light­weight yet durable, and of­fer­ing great com­fort thanks to their pleather earcups. An ad­justable steel head­band links the two piv­ots for fold­ing them up.

Fea­tures

The QC35's can be paired to two de­vices and dy­nam­i­cally switch be­tween them. A sin­gle charge gets you 20 hours’ use (40 when wired) and there are dual mics for tak­ing calls. Bose’s noise-can­celling is in­dus­try renowned, but oddly you can't turn it off.

Per­for­mance

The QC35’s re­tain the clear, bal­anced au­dio of the QC25’s, but the ANC some­times pick up wind when worn out­side. In­doors, though, the soft hiss of the ANC is al­most in­audi­ble and the in­su­la­tion re­ally adds to the sound stage.

Con­trols

No touch con­trols. In­stead, there's four but­tons on the right ear cup: one for turn­ing the cans on/off and pair­ing , two but­tons for vol­ume, and one to play/pause and for calls. The app man­ages paired de­vices and voice fea­tures.

There's no doubt­ing the fine noise can­celling, au­dio per­for­mance and bat­tery life, but Bose's en­try into the wire­less mar­ket isn't ex­cep­tional.
