Now, 9to5Google has found out the difference between the upcoming models and the original headphone model and it's Google Assistant. The QC35 II will be one of the first headphones to integrate Google's voice assistant.
Bose is expected to reveal a new version of its popular QuietComfort 35 wireless noise cancelling headphones with built-in Google Assistant. In terms of design, the QuietComfort 35 II resembles its predecessor and no major changes are made to the headphones. It clearly shows there's a Google Assistant logo printed at the back of the box. Bisto, for the uninitiated, is what Google calls this category of devices within the Google app code.
Shortly after 9To5Google's report, a user on Reddit shared alleged images of the retail box of the Bose QuietComfort 35 II. "Just press and hold the Action button, and start talking", part of the product sheet read.
Google is consistently improving its assistant over a range of devices, the latest is the Bose QuietComfort 35 II.
The Assistant is also present with Siri for iPhone users.
As for the headphones itself, the QuietComfort 35 II still seems to have the usual bells and whistles: adjustable noise cancelation, noise-rejecting dual microphones, and more.
Given that it is a promotional video, it doesn't go into every detail about the features of the headphones, but it did say that this pair of wireless headphones will last upto 20 hours on a single charge, which is in line with the company's existing Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones.
The QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones retails for $349.95. For what it's worth, the QuietComfort 35 II's packaging does indicate it'll work for Apple devices, but it doesn't explicitly suggest if Assistant-based features will also work on iOS.
