Bose has now announced its first headphone with Google Assistant. Dubbed as QC35 II the new headphones come with interesting features and even new settings to control the noise levels.
"The QC35 is already the world's most celebrated wireless headphone, and a survival tool for modern life," said Brian Maguire, Director, Bose on-the-go products. "We didn't change anything that people already love - with Google Assistant built-in, and new choices for what you hear, we made it better."
The QC35 II noise-canceling headphones have all the performance and features of the original QC35. They deliver the same industry-defining noise cancellation, audio performance, and up to 20 hours of battery life. The same controls remain on the right earcup - audio volume, and the multi-function button for incoming calls and accessing Siri. And now, there's a new Action Button on the left earcup that will allow users to connect to Google Assistant - without having to grab the phone, unlock it, and finding the app.
Bose and Google have worked together on the exclusive experience in the QC35 II, making it the first integration of Google Assistant in a headphone.
Users can just press and hold the Action Button and Google Assistant will be ready to help - no waiting, looking, swiping, or typing. Users can start talking, and the Assistant will help in managing music and getting other things done - like playing a playlist or a favorite song by a favorite artist, and users can also add appointments to their Google calendar.
"It can help you stay connected - from simple things like making a call to notifying you about incoming messages, events, and reminders, and reading them back to you. And it can answer questions and find information - so you can check a score, the latest headlines, whether your flight is on time, what movies are playing downtown - and more," the company said.
Bose QC35 II comes with a proprietary microphone system that picks-up voices with remarkable accuracy, so that commands are understood. The company has said that in a fraction of a millisecond, Bose active noise cancellation dramatically eliminates unwanted sounds around the users.
Like its predecessor, the QC35 II's noise cancellation is fully activated when the headphone is on, but the Bose Connect App now lets users choose to keep it on (high), turn it down (low), or disable it completely (off). The Connect App also lets users change the Action Button's functionality, so they can control the noise settings from the earcup when they want, and switch back to Google Assistant when they like.
The QC35 II noise-canceling headphones will be available in black and silver and is priced at Rs. 29,363. The QC35 II's Action Button will access Google Assistant in the markets where Google Assistant is available. In other markets, the Action Button will control noise settings only. The QC35 II noise-canceling headphones will be sold at Bose retail stores, Boseindia.com and authorized Bose dealers across the country.
