Bose has done a good job in recent years of keeping its venerable brand current with tech-savvy products like Spotify-integrated speakers, a whole-house audio system, and noise-cancelling earphones. It's even plunged into the world of apps. That changes right now as Bose is announcing no less than four new models, two of them with impressive noise-canceling tech. SEE ALSO: Samsung's Level On Pro headphones are good, but nothing spectacular The headliner is the QuietComfort 35 ( 349.95), which looks and feels like a wireless version of the company's current noise-canceling over-the-ear headphones, the QC25. I got chance to try out all the new models (except for the Pulse), and although it was a controlled Bose demo, I came away impressed with how Bose has integrated its noise-canceling tech with the convenience of wireless models.
Bose's famous QuietComfort 25 active noise-cancelling headphones are going cordless in the form of the company's new QuietComfort 35s. But in a market already awash with wireless ANC cans, is the effort too little too late to grab the attention of music-loving/cord-hating aficionados? Having had the opportunity to spend a short amount of hands-on time with them last week at a media event in New York City, we think they have a fighting chance. Similar in looks and heft to the company's iconic QC25s, Bose's QuietComfort 35 headphones are a cushy over-the-ear affair available in black or silver. They utilize four separate microphones and an ANC chipset to block out a massive amount of external noise--at least under the controlled conditions that we were allowed to listen to them in.
We buy our own products and put them under the same testing methodology so that you can easily compare them. Unlike most websites, we do not get our products directly from the manufacturers, which means our units aren't handpicked and actually represent what you would buy yourself. We spend a lot of time comparing the products side-by-side to validate our results, and we keep them until they are discontinued so we can continually go back and make sure our reviews are always accurate. If you're going to be using your headphones outdoors, then noise will most likely be an issue. This could be a good thing if you want to monitor your surroundings for traffic, but for most people, masking the outside world to focus on your music or podcast is important.
Are there any deals on Bose wireless headphones right now?" If you're looking for a great pair of high end headphones at a good price, then Walmart has a really good deal for you. The Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) wireless headphones are now on sale for just $299.99 at Walmart -- the first time we've ever seen the price drop. Normally priced at $349.99, the QuietComfort 35 II were engineered with premium, yet lightweight, materials for a true noise-cancelling and immersive audio experience. Armed with Google Assistant built-in for getting the info you need on the go, the headphones can also help send and receive text messages, answer phone calls when attached to a smartphone, and control all of your music and podcasts with just your voice.
NEW YORK--The company credited with inventing premium noise cancelling headphones is finally taking such headphones wireless. Bose has just unveiled four distinct wireless headphones, headlined by two noise cancelling Bluetooth models, the 349.95 around ear QuietComfort 35 model that went on sale Sunday and the 299.95 QuietControl 30s that come out in September. For all its strengths as a recognizable top quality brand (typically with prices to match), Bose has been a laggard in the increasingly crowded wireless category. Indeed, the QC 35s and QC 30s prove that Bose intends to be a player in the space.
