Bose’s new headphones let you tune out the noise and tune into the music

The new QuietComfort 35 make distractions such as background noise and wires a thing of the past.

It’s perfectly fine to detach yourself with a cup of coffee and some music from your headphones to kick back and relax at the end–or even at the middle–of a tiring week. But distractions sometimes get in the way, including irritating background noise or wires from your headphones that force you into an uncomfortable position. With Bose’s new QuietComfort 35 around-ear headphones, these distractions are now a thing of the past.

Bose has always been at the forefront of innovation when it comes to the audio industry, and they are set to revolutionise it once again. With Bose’s QC35, the limitations of existing wireless noise cancelling headphones are effectively shattered, giving the user an entirely new experience for traveling, commuting, creating, studying, or just plain old relaxing. The QC35 lets the user tune out completely with the same remarkable silence of Bose’s famous wired QuietComfort headphones.

Bose’s QuietComfort headphones

Bose’s QuietComfort 35 has microphones inside and outside the earcups, which enables it to sense, measure, and send unwanted sounds to two proprietary digital electronic chips, one for each ear. These chips respond with a precise, equal, and opposite signal in less than a fraction of a millisecond. The resulting effect is a marvel which is exclusive only to Bose.

Background sounds, such as the rumble of a subway car, plane engine, or the commotion from rush hour get hushed into a comfortable silence.

The QC35 also has up to 20 hours of battery life from its rechargeable lithium-ion battery, so customers can count on it to last longer than a flight from New York to Hong Kong. The QC35 is currently available in Hong Kong for HK$2888.

All of Bose’s new wireless headphones include NFC for touch-to-pair convenience, super-intuitive controls for music and calls, voice prompts for key information including setup, caller ID and battery life, and the free Bose Connect app for even more functionality. While the QC35 is packed with proprietary technology for performance, the finer details of materials, build and finish are equally precise. They’re refined yet rugged, lightweight yet stable, with legendary Bose comfort.

A premium on comfort

While traditional headphones may irritate the ear with prolonged usage, Bose’s QC35 puts a premium on comfort and can be used for long stretches of time. The material is essential for Bose’s headphones. Its headband is not only soft, but it’s regarded as a luxury. The headphones use Alcantara® suede, an international brand used for luxurious purposes such as sailing and advanced limousines. This material allows the headphones to be used all day long. Ear cushions are made of a synthetic protein leather, and silicon containing microspheres which generate a passive noise cancellation effect.

Bose also chose to use glass fiber-filled nylon, a lightweight and durable material, and give up the use of plastic. Meanwhile, the headband is made of stainless steel spring, ensuring that the headset can withstand the stresses of daily use.

Mobile app connectivity

The QuietComfort 35 is also compatible with the free Bose Connect app, which gives Bose wireless headphones unparalleled functionality. With the clean and minimal interface of the mobile application on the first use, it’s familiar for users on the first use. Owners can easily connect and switch between Bluetooth devices, update software, personalize their voice prompt language and more.

The Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones are available in luxurious colors of black and silver. All new headphones will be sold through Bose stores and select authorized dealers. The Bose Connect app, meanwhile, can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

“Until now, great wireless noise cancellation and better wireless workouts have been more of a dream than reality,” says Bernice Cramer, general manager of Bose Wireless Headphones.

“Like the QuietComfort headphones before them, the performance of the QC35 is way ahead of where the market is right now.” With Bose constantly on the forefront of innovation, the QuietComfort 35 is likely just the latest of more innovations that the company will bring to its valued users.
