The Bose QuietComfort 35 II are getting a nice upgrade from the original model, officially bringing Google Assistant to a pair of headphones. The Bose QuietComfort 35 II offers the users with an unbelievable noise cancellation. The Connect App also lets you change the Action button's functionality, so you can control the noise settings from the earcup when you want, and switch back to your Google Assistant when you want. "We didn't change anything that people already love - with the Google Assistant built in, and new choices for what you hear, we made it better", said Brian Maguire, director, Bose on-the-go products.

Google mentions in its blog post on the new partnership and integration that it's been working with Bose on Assistant integration for headphones "starting with" the QC 35 II, which implies that we could see this feature expand to more of the Bose line in the future. And the iconic QC®35 becomes the first headphone to offer seamless voice access to your Google Assistant, and now comes with settings to control the noise around you. Just press and hold the Action button, and start a conversation with your Assistant.

You'll be able to get an estimated 20 hours of battery life from a single charge and will even be able to connect the headphones with a cable if the battery dies in order to continue listening. The rubberized buds make them more suitable for running and workouts than AirPods, and Bose headphones are typically known for good sound. Just ask your Assistant to "play the news" and you'll get a read-out of the current hot topics. The Bose QC35 II wireless Bluetooth headphones will keep everything private and convenient.

Unlike the SoundSport Free earbuds, the QC35 II headphones are available now at Bose retail stores, through Bose.com, and at various Bose retailers. Bose innovations have spanned decades and industries, creating and transforming categories in audio and beyond.
