Bose QuietComfort 35 II To Be First 'Bisto' Headphones With Google Assistant

Share

Back in August, the company accidentally published a newsletter with an image showing unreleased headphones.

The new QC35II headphones will now have an "Action button" on it, which will be used by the users to activate Google Assistant, reported 9to5Google.

Bose Australia charges A$499 for the original QuietComfort 35. "With your Google Assistant built in, you can control music, send & receive texts, and get answers using just your voice". A Reddit user posted an image on Thursday of what appears to be the box of the same headphones, which the user allegedly spotted on an unspecified online marketplace. It's good to see Google finally expanding its virtual assistant to more devices. Moreover, the retail box shows that the left cup of the headphones comes with the mentioned Action button, which isn't found on any of Bose's previous products. In terms of design, the QuietComfort 35 II resembles its predecessor and no major changes are made to the headphones. The pricing is expected to be similar to the last year's model - $350.

The upcoming headphones look very much like the current QC35, with the added button being the only notable physical difference.

The publication also notes that the headphones will come in black and silver colour variants, have "adjustable noise cancellation", a "noise-rejecting dual microphone" and 20-hour battery life.

To make things convenient for the user, we also believe Bose will bundle in a 3.5mm audio cable in case you run out of battery.

With the Google Assistant on Android and iOS already featuring the groundwork for Assistant-enabled headphones, an announcement seems likely at Google's October 4th event.

In a report, the blog details how the pair of headphones in question will be the Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones II, which will reportedly be "one of Google's first partnered smart headphone devices that feature the Google Assistant".
