Bose QuietComfort 35 Review
For the best wireless cans offering the best of both worlds, you can look at the Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones. While the model has already been updated with the QC35 II the latter remains an excellent Bluetooth earphone. What makes the QC35 even more impressive is that Bose cut the wires without making compromises. check out Bose QuietComfort 20 Review
Bose QuietComfort 35 Design
If you have ever used the QC25, you will feel right at home using the Bose QuietComfort 35 headphone. The design is simple with the oval earcups and looks better than most other fashionable counterparts. You can buy the headset that is black or silver with the Bose logo displayed on each earcup. We like the fact that the log does not attract too much attention. The earcups connected to the headband and padded well. We found the headband comfortable as the weights distributed well.
We can wear them for hours without feeling uncomfortable at all. On the left earcup, you have a 2.5mm jack for wired connection to use with different devices. While you can use it wired, the main focus is on the right can. Here you find a power slider with micro USB charging port. The slider controls playback and works with both iOS and Android devices. Even pairing the headphone with your phone is a breeze. All you need to do is slide the button all the way right into pairing mode. Now you select the setting from your phone, and the devices paired.
Furthermore, you can use the NFC pairing with your Android device instead. Switching between multiple connections easy, and you can keep it connected with more than one device at the same time. The battery use is 20-hours, and that is excellent. On the other hand, when used as wired headphones, you can get up to 40-hours playback. Another essential function is the short audio notification informing you of the battery status. You also get a remote/mic for making calls, and with the noise-canceling technology present, it removes background noise well.
Bose QuietComfort 35 Performance
For listening to tunes, you can use the standard Bluetooth connection or aptX connection instead. For streaming music we found the standard wireless connection works better. You get a crisp sound without the flatness using other wireless headphones. Moreover, you get a broad soundstage pairing it with high-quality recordings. Switching to tracks with more speed, the QC35 offers you load of punch.
Personally, the Active EQ function to boost the bass when lowering the volume did not impress us. We found it made the tracks feel as if it has too much bass using it in the low frequencies. But when it comes to noise-canceling, the QC35 stands at the top compared to other brands. The microphone works well, but having the controls closer to your mouth would be great. Even during video calls in a noisy office we found it audible.

Should You Buy It?
Yes, if you want the best sound quality with top-notch noise-canceling in wireless headphones. The QC35 is comfortable to wear for hours of listening. While it does not have the latest aptX Bluetooth, the sound quality is still excellent. We did find the EQ subtle and added nothing extra to our listening experience. Using it as a headset is excellent as the ambient sounds blocked out well. Furthermore, you can enjoy your favorite tunes up to 20-hours wireless and connect it wired when the juice runs out.
We found the QC35 to be one of the best noise-canceling headphones available. Whether you are listening to music or watching movies the wireless earphones will serve you well. We found using the headset everyday comfortable, and you get the best sound. The battery life is excellent, and using it during flights lowers the outside noise. You get regular firmware updates, and the included carry case works well to keep the headphone looking great. Sometimes we did find some loss of connection watching movies, but it picks it up quickly. We would like to see the function disabled, making it able for us to use it with the app alone. But when it comes noise isolation nothing compares to the Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphone.
