Bose today introduced the updated QC35 II wireless headphones in India. Priced at Rs 29,363, the noise-canceling headphones were first launched globally in September and mark their debut in the country starting today. There are two color choices of black and silver. You can purchase the headphones through Bose retail stores, Boseindia.com and authorized Bose dealers.
The talking point of the headphones is that they are integrated with Google Assistant and let you give voice commands through a dedicated button. This Action Button, as Bose calls it, will access Google’s digital assistant in markets it is available in.
Bose and Google have worked together in developing the Bose QC 35 II, which has the first-ever integration of Google Assistant in a headphone. To give a voice command, simply press and hold the Action Button on the left earcup. The digital assistant is capable of handling music, set alerts, write messages, and also add appointments to your Google calendar among other things. Existing support for launching Siri is through the multi-function control button on the right earcup. ALSO READ: Bose SoundLink Micro waterproof speaker launched: Price, specifications, features
The company has also added settings to control environmental noise. The QC 35 II are activated for noise cancellation when they are powered on. However, the Bose Connect App now lets you choose to keep it on (high), turn it down (low), or disable it completely (off). 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 or switch back to your Google Assistant.
