What is going on guys? My name is Sujandar from Premium Earphones. I’m going to be going over the Bose QuietComfort 35 series II today.

Unboxing

So, when you open the box you’re greeted with the carrying case. The hard-shell case, which is exactly what we need for this headphone and for its complete protection. This case will prevent it from scratch marks or dust and you can easily store it away into a bag.

Inside the carrying case you will have your headphones tucked inside. You will see how flexible it is. Then you have the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II headphones itself inside the carrying case. They feel super lightweight and they also have that premium feel that feels like it’s worth every single penny. It’s hard to describe what it feels like until you hold one of them yourself.

You get a USB charger and there’s a quick charge feature, so if you charge it for just 15 minutes, it gives you an extra 2.5 hours of juice. This always comes in handy if you need to quickly charge your headphones.

The last thing you get with the headphones is an audio cable, which has a 3.5-millimeter jack to allow you to listen to music by connecting wires. Although you do have Bluetooth wireless connection, you can also use wired connection as a backup when the battery runs out.

Design

Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II is amazing for traveling. It has a great comfort. Even though I was wearing it for hours I didn’t feel any discomfort while wearing them. The comfort is top-notch.

Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II are a smart-looking minimal pair of headphones. They maintain the slim profile of the originals and the comfort level. These are considered one of the most comfortable headphones on the market. You can wear this headphone for hours without even feeling like you have to take them of to let your ears breathe. They are super durable and can be bent and twisted. I still recommend using the carrying case while putting them in your bag.

They have an amazing build quality. The way the ear cups have been designed gives the user a great comfort. When I tested this headphone out I never felt any discomfort in my ears. The ear pads can be removed and replaced if needed.

You’ll see that this headphone charges via Micro USB on the bottom of the headphone and even has a 3.5-millimeter input.

The materials used for the headband is Alcantara Cushion which provides comfort on the top of your head and they are also impact resistant. If you open the arms, you’ll see that it can adjust which is good for people with larger heads. I’ve also noticed that the headband is very flexible. Overall the headband provides extra comfort for day to day use and designed to last a long time.

The clamping force is also solid, and it doesn’t hurt your ears at all. The ear cups are made with a synthetic protein material providing a soft cushion for your ears. The outer part is corrosion resistant and made of glass filled nylon, so this means that it won’t wear out like other headphones. This headphone is made with some high-quality material.

When I wore them, I honestly didn’t feel a thing. They feel really light on your head. Overall, the materials used are built to last a long time, so you really don’t need to worry about durability.

Features

Now let’s talk about features and what these headphones can do for you. So, the first thing is that the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II are well-known for its Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) feature and their ability to make a loud engine, sound like a whisper.

If you’re unsure about Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) read below to know what it is. Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) basically cancels all the background noise. You can easily modify this with an app. I’ve tried wearing these myself outside and they do block out a lot of noises to a significant amount. So, if you compare the Active Noise Cancellation to other types of noise canceling headphones, these are one of the best. So, if you’re in the market for specifically noise canceling headphones then these Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II will do the job for you.

The Active Noise Cancellation is very beneficial for people who are traveling a lot in public places or on public transport. If you just put the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II on, it creates that soundproof environment to help you either concentrate on something or quieten down your environment, so you feel much more at ease. It blocks out all the background noises even while you are not playing any music.

The active noise-canceling feature comes in three different levels. It has high, low and completely off.

If you’re someone with anxiety and you’re in public, you can use the Active Noise Cancellation and play some soft music to calm you down a bit. When you play music with the Active Noise Cancellation you can turn the world completely off. There can be just you and your music.

On the left ear cup there is a function button which you can use for Google assistant to help you perform a task. It kind of works the same way as Siri so you can manage your daily task with just your voice. You can set things like reminders or plan your day or even just play music. The Google assistant can be handy because you will be able to do your tasks without glancing at your phone all the time.

If voice commands aren’t really your thing, then you can use the app to set the function button to just act as an Active Noise Cancellation modifier. So, what this does is you can alter the Active Noise Cancellation within three buttons.

I think it’s much more useful to use the Active Noise Cancellation modifier as you don’t need to use the app to do this because with the app you can either set the function button to either be an Active Noise Cancellation modifier or Google assistant.

You have multi pairing option in this headphone which means you will be able to connect it to multiple devices at the same time.

The last thing I’ll touch on, is the Bluetooth and NFC which is near field communication (NFC). You can simply switch the Bluetooth button on and pair your device in seconds and once you’re all set up you can simply touch the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II with your phone and it will pair up again without you having to go to your settings.

Controls

 

 

On your right side of the headphones you will have your power ON and OFF button which you will slide it over to turn it OFF or ON. You also use that for your Bluetooth pairing. You will also have your pause, play, forward and backward control. You will also be able to increase your volume and decrease your volume.

On the bottom of the right headphone you have your USB 2.0 port. Bose has up to 20 hours of playback. You also have fast charging feature in this headphone. Just 15 minutes of charge will give you 2.5 hours of playback.

On the left headphone we have our button for activating the active noise-canceling feature and the google assistance.

For accessing the Google assistance, you tap and hold the button on the left headphone. You can use it for accessing your phone hands free. It can be really useful at times.

On the side, you will have your microphone which is always useful because when you’re in public, the person speaking to you will be able to hear you clearly even if it’s windy. You can also hear yourself, so you don’t speak too loudly, which is cool.

Bluetooth Connectivity

The Bluetooth range is steady. I have been achieving ranges up to 18 to 25 meters, which I think is great compared to the other headphones in the market.

I had no problem with the connection strength whether my phone was in my pocket or across the room. The connection strength also applied to my calls and I had no issues with them. If the call quality is something that’s important to you these won’t let you down.

Sound Quality

Bose Quiet Comfort 35 Series II provides an amazing bass without messing up your music. The entire frequency range is well-balanced and clean. The highs are crispy clean, and the lows provide a nice thump. I was surprised with the bass because it’s quite punchy. The mid-range is really detailed as well. I enjoyed listening to the vocals on every single song and the bass is punchy but not very overpowering. The Bose QuietComfort 35 also has an EQ which is a technology used for volume optimization and this provides consistent performance at any level of sound that you’re playing at.

Conclusion

I think the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II is the best for all types of people whether you are a traveler or recreational listener.

The addition of the Google assistant and the Active Noise Canceling Feature is the best advantage of this headphone. They’re sleek and comfortable.

If you have any questions about these headphones make sure you comment down below, and I’ll get back to you.

  1. You always know a quality pair of headphones by the packaging. I like that you say that they are packaged in a hard case which helps to protect them.

    This pair looks so comfortable and soft, and as you word it flexible. Great that they only take fifteen minutes to charge.

    And of course, nowadays everything you buy must be Bluetooth enabled, which these are. 

    Great review and you have made me want a set of these.

    1. Thank you for the comment Michel. Fifteen minutes is for the Fast Charging Feature. If you want to charge it completely it is going to take more than 15 minutes. 

  2. Thank you for sharing this great information.  I am looking for some noise canceling headphones because I travel a lot and my ear buds aren’t doing the trick.

    I have looked at both Bose and Beats, but I think I trust the Bose name.  

    You say that the sound quality makes nearly all music sound great.  Which genres of music aren’t as great on the bose?

    1. Thank you for your comment Nate. I have listened to all kind of genres and I think the Bose Quiet Comfort Series II does a good job on delivering the same sound quality regardless of the genres.

  3. It is amazing that the bluetooth connection is still strong even though you are right across the room. How do you like the battery life? I love the fast charge function that you mentioned, I get so annoyed when my headsets are out of battery. Does it take long to charge it? How many colors that it comes?

    1. Hi Nuttanee, 

      Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II gives you 20 hours of playback. That is almost for a whole day. I think that is really great. Charging it completely once can get you throughout the day. Even if you run out of charge you have the Fast Charging Feature. Just 15 minutes if charge can give you 2.5 hours of playback. 

      I would say it takes around 2.5 hours to completely charge the headphones. 

      It comes in three colors: Black, Silver and Triple Midnight.

      Thank you for your comment. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, let me know.

  4. Wow! Awesome spec there. If this specs are 100% then this will definitely be a perfect Valentine gift for my music freaked GF,  I think I’m going to get one for myself too, lol after all what is good for the goose is good for the gander. Nothing like a good music and what conveys the music to your hearing matters a lot.

    1. Hi Faftop,

      I really hope that you and your Girl Friend like the headphones. Have a wonderful Valentines day.

  11. Bose quietcomfort 35 is really amazing. Haven’t buy it yet but the Active Noise Canceling Feature really get me curious on how it feel like to have one in my luggage when I travel. 

    I do travel alot and I get bored during the Long journey ,I will try and get one for my next long journey 

    1. It can be a great asset for a long journey. You can ignore all the noises around you and float in music. Try them out and let me know how you feel about it.

  12. I am a huge fan of noise canceling headsets. It is very useful especially when I was in college. I made use of noise-canceling headsets as it enabled me to study better with all the noise around. I cannot remember the name of the one I made use of but I think in comparison with the boss quiet comfort 35 series II it is not as good as it. The headphone reviewed in this post is much better. 

    For starters, the boss quiet is Bluetooth enabled and also can be charged. Those are advantages my old headset did not have. Also, the google assistance is a unique feature of this headphone. It is really amazing and I would most definitely like to get my hands on this.

    1. Hi Jay,

      It is great that you have already tried other Noise Cancelling headphone. Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II is a big upgrade. I’m saying that because it is one of the best Noise Cancelling headphones in the market at the moment. You should definitely try this out. Let me know how you feel about this headphones.

  13. Hi Sujandar,

    I read the article about Bose Quiet Comfort 35 Series II. Recently, the demand for headphones worldwide has increased significantly as the necessary accompaniment to listening to music. Technology companies have also focused on creating headphones, as well as creating headphones. In the same continuation, advanced technology wireless headphones were introduced. Due to the introduction of premium headphones, a new dimension will be added soon to the top smart device manufacturer’s business. Bose Quiet Comfort 35 series is very easy to use and convenient because it is portable during travel and with wireless and bluetooth facilities. I will share the Bose Quiet Comfort 35 Series II article with my friends.

    1. Hi Cpanharun,

      I’m glad that you will be sharing this with your friends. You have pointed out some important features of this headphones. Technology is just amazing. They are always looking to bring us different kinds of experience with their products. We are lucky to get our hands on it.

      Thank you for the comment.

  14. I enjoy listening to soft music such as jazz, rhythm & blues, classical, gospel, and a little bit of country.  It makes a big difference when you have a pair of Bose earphones or headphones.  The pair that I purchased are a pleasure to own but I was wondering are Bose headphones considered to be the best among the rest ?  I also would like to know if Bose is going to make headphones in a variety of colors as I am looking for a red with black pair?  I would recommend Bose headphones to anyone who is interested….Thank You !

    1. Hi Mark,

      I wouldn’t say that the Bose QuietComfort is the best among the rest. You really can’t say which is better than the other. They all are good in their own way but I can tell you that this headphone is definitely one of the best in the market at the moment. 

      Unfortunately they don’t come in red. They only have Black, Silver and Triple Midnight which looks like a Dark Blue.

      Thank you for your comment.

  15. What does it for me is the awesome fifteen minutes (15 mins) quick charging time feature. This simply implies that I would get more musical enjoyment and sacrifice less charging time. Is that not just great? And the long lasting battery life is an undeniable pro also. In fact I acknowledge the fact that it has more pros than cons

    1. Hi,

      The fast charging is really impressive. I mean 15 minutes of charging for 2.5 hours of playback is always a big plus for me. I don’t think I ever need to use the fast charging feature because one complete charge can give me 20 hours of playback and that is almost a day.

      Thank you for the comment.

  16. Great post and good info.

    It is known about Bose that their material is very good, I have a surround system of them and I’m very happy with it. 

    I don’t need a headphone for now, but a friend of me is looking for one, since he lost his other. 

    I see the price isn’t so high, so I will show this to him, and who knows, he is convinced and he will buy it. 

    Thanks for sharing! 

  17. This headphone seems to have come with a good quality, the sound cancellation really got me. Although Thisbe is my first time to come across a headphone as this on the Internet. I am usually familiar with popular brands like Sony , behringer. You made mention of it been good for recreational activities, so I needed to ask if I could use the headphone for recording in my home studio. How is the Isolation like?

    1. Hi Brandbility,

      I think it can be a great headphone for recording in your home studio. It has Noise Cancelling Feature which can eliminate all the background noises and gives you a clean sound quality. I would definitely recommend this headphone.

  18. Thanks so much for this review of the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II. I do have a little experience with Bose wireless headphones like these because my husband uses them and LOVES them. The biggest thing he uses them for is when he’s traveling for work. 

    He can put them on and block out all the surrounding sounds on the plane so he can get some rest and not be bothered by the engine noise or crying kids. 

    I’ve tried them myself and the biggest thing I’ve noticed is that they’re extremely comfortable. Like pillows softly hugging your ears. lol 

    As you mentioned, these headphones have excellent sound too. I know my husband is really picky about headphones because they NEED to sound good, and he would definitely say these are worth the price. 

    1. Hi Christina,

      Thank you for sharing your experience with the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II. I’m glad that you have really enjoyed the headphones and how it has helped you eliminate all the background noises. 

  19. Hi Suandar, very good and informative review of Bose QuietComfort earphones. It`s great, in the box of the product you get everything you need; carrying case, earphones, USB cable and audio cable. The earphones are light, design is nice looking and the earphones are very practical to use on travelling for example. I really like the Active Noice Cancelation and the sound quality, this is a good product, definitely! Thanks for sharing with us.

  20. Wow! The Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II is really superb with lots of good ratings from CNet, TechRadar, Amazon, SoundGuys and PCMag.I think it’s really a must have from the features you’ve listed so far most especially the active noise cancellation feature. I will consider getting one of this, but I prefer Red colour to black though. Do you think I can get RED colour of this same product? Thanks for the honest review

    1. Hi,

      I’m sorry, unfortunately it is not available in Red colour. You can get it in Black, Silver or Triple Midnight(Dark Blue).

  21. Impressive specifications for a headphone as comfortable and cost effective as this! Great sound quality and unique build! The sleekness of this product is unique in a way that lacks sufficient words to be described. I can’t help but wonder how the sound production would be when in use! Absolutely impressive!
