Renowned noise cancelling headphones—now with Bose AR
QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II are engineered with renowned noise cancellation. With the Google Assistant built in, you have instant access to millions of songs, playlists and more—hands free. And that’s just the beginning. QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II are now enabled with Bose AR—the world’s very first audio-only augmented reality platform, where applications will utilise contextual audio to deliver first-of-a-kind experiences. Unlock Bose AR via a firmware update through the Bose Connect app. Now in limited-edition Rose Gold.
What happens when you clear away the noisy distractions of the world? Concentration goes to the next level. You get deeper into your music, your work or whatever you want to focus on. That’s the power of QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II. Put them on and get closer to what you’re most passionate about. Proprietary technology continuously monitors and measures outside noise and then cancels it with the opposite signal. But we didn’t stop there. You can also adjust the level of noise cancellation between three levels to better fit your environment. So you can focus—really focus—on what matters.

And they still feature our world-class noise cancelling technology that blocks noise and lets you lose yourself in your music.
NO VOICE ASSISTANT? NO PROBLEM.
If you’re not a Google Assistant user, don’t worry. You can still use the Action button to adjust your level of noise cancellation between three settings.

When you want to take your music anywhere, you need headphones built to keep up. With impact-resistant materials, glass-filled nylon and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, they’re engineered to survive life on the go. But when you take them everywhere and listen all day, they have to be comfortable, too. That’s why the QC35 headband isn’t just soft, it’s luxurious. Wrapped in Alcantara®—the soft covering material used in yachts and high-end automobiles—it provides welcome comfort designed for all-day listening. And the plush ear cushions are manufactured from a synthetic protein leather, so it won’t even feel like you’re wearing headphones.
Up to 20 hours battery life
Enjoy up to 20 hours of listening, enough time to work through this entire playlist. So you can keep the music—or the quiet—going all day long. And when it finally runs down, a quick 15-minute charge gives you another 2.5 hours. For those rare times when you do get caught without battery power, use the included cable to plug in and keep the music playing.
Astonishing sound at any volume
You want fullness and clarity for your music, regardless of how loud it gets. That’s why our drivers feature volume-optimised EQ for even better performance than before. Get clear, balanced audio performance at any volume and a noise-rejecting dual-microphone system that provides clearer calls, even in noisy environments. So, when you’re playing at low volumes in a quiet office, you get the same, consistent quality as when you need to turn it up on a busy street.
One app. Complete control.
The Bose Connect app gives you easy access to everything your product has to offer. Get tips, unlock Bose AR and personalise your settings, so you can spend more time enjoying the music instead of setting it up. Bose AR-enhanced apps are currently available for iPhone and iPad users only. Apps for Android devices are in development.
Whether you’re at the airport or the library, you can also choose just how much you want to hear (or not hear) by adjusting the level of noise cancellation. And remember, sharing is caring. You can connect two pairs of wireless Bose headphones, so you and your friend can listen to the same thing at the same time. We hope you have a good playlist lined up.

Bose AR availability and functionality vary.
What is the difference between QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones and QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II?
QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II offer the same unmatched combination of acclaimed noise reduction technology, wireless freedom, audio performance, dual-microphone system and 20 hours of battery life as QuietComfort 35 headphones. However, QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II also have a new Action button on the left earcup. In countries and languages where virtual assistants like Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant are available, the Action button gives you instant access to voice-controlled tasks. In countries where virtual assistants are not available, it lets you quickly toggle through three different ANR settings for optimal performance wherever you go.
What is TriPort acoustic headphone structure?
Proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure utilises external ports to vent the earcups and effectively enlarge the acoustic volume, without increasing the size of the earcup. The result is better audio and active noise reduction from smaller, lighter, more comfortable headphones. TriPort acoustic headphone structure is used in all of our consumer headphones and headsets.
How do I know if my QC35 headphones II are Bose AR enabled?
Bose has updated the Bose Connect app—for Apple iOS users only to start—to help you easily identify whether your QC35 II has the Bose AR technology built in. A Bose AR logo will be displayed in the app whenever it detects that a Bose AR product is paired. Please note that you will need the Bose Connect app version 8.0 or later and that some products may require a software update prior to experiencing this new feature.
How is the total noise cancellation in QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II achieved?
QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II utilise both active and passive noise reduction technologies. They use a sophisticated proprietary electronics approach to active noise reduction, placing microphones both inside and outside the earcups. The electronics system senses the sound in almost any environment and then measures, compares and reacts—instant by instant—to produce an opposing cancellation signal. The passive noise reduction is achieved by the combination of the acoustic design and materials chosen for the earcups and cushions.
What is NFC?
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range wireless technology that enables two NFC-enabled devices to communicate when they are placed in close proximity with one another, typically less than 10 cm (4"). For QuietComfort 35 headphones II, NFC is used to facilitate Bluetooth® pairing. When an NFC-enabled device, such as a smartphone, is placed near the right earcup of the headphones, they are paired to the device via Bluetooth. Placing the device near the earcup a second time will unpair the headphones.
Can QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II take calls?
Yes. QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II have a dual-microphone system to allow you to use them during calls when connected to a smartphone that supports the Bluetooth® HFP profile. In addition to traditional calls, the headphones will work with many apps that use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), such as Skype or FaceTime. The dual-mic system helps reduce wind and background noise to ensure an exceptional far-end experience, while sidetone lets you hear your own voice so you sound natural when speaking on a call. QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II also support HD Voice.
How do I pair QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II with my mobile device?
For NFC-enabled phones, simply turn on the headphones by sliding the three-position power switch to the middle position and then tap the back side of your phone on the front of the right earcup where you see the embossed NFC logo. Follow the prompt to accept a connection. If you don’t have an NFC-enabled phone, first make sure that the headphones are turned on by sliding the three-position power switch to the middle position. Next, press the three-position power switch to the Bluetooth® icon until the Bluetooth LED flashes blue or the voice-enhanced user interface gives you additional directions. Now, follow the directions within the smartphone’s Bluetooth menu to connect the headphones. Once the connection has been made, the Bluetooth LED will turn white.
Can QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II be connected to two mobile devices simultaneously?
Yes. Multi-point technology allows QC35 wireless headphones II to maintain a connection to two devices at the same time—for example, an iPad and a smartphone. So, while you’re watching video on the connected iPad, the headphones will automatically pause the video to answer a call from the connected smartphone. When the call is finished, the headphones will switch back to the video on the iPad.
What is the range of QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II?
QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II have a range of 9 meters (30 feet) from the source device. It is realistic to describe the range as being the room that the user is in and the adjacent room. This range may be reduced by physical obstructions, such as walls and doors, or by interference from other electronic devices. Pops or a crackling noise may be heard if there’s interference with the Bluetooth® connection. If that happens, move away from wireless routers or microwaves and bring your headphones closer to the Bluetooth device.
How do I charge QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II?
QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II can be charged by using the USB cable supplied in the box and plugging it into a USB port on a computer or a wall charger (sold separately). Allow up to 2.25 hours for the headphones to fully charge. Once they are fully charged, the battery indicator light will turn green. When you don’t have time for a full charge, the fast-charge feature provides up to 2.5 hours of play time from a quick 15-minute charge.
How long will the battery stay charged?
QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II use a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that stays powered for up to 20 hours while using the headphones wirelessly and up to 40 hours for wired use.
Can you listen to music when the battery runs down?
Yes. These headphones allow users to continue to listen to their source even if the battery power is depleted. Without power, neither active noise cancellation nor Active EQ is able to function.
Can I charge QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II from my PC/laptop?
Yes. QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones II come with a USB cable that allows the headphones to be charged from your PC or laptop. Please note that the PC or laptop must be on and awake in order to charge over USB.
What are the buttons for on the back of the right earcup?
The larger middle button is the multi-function button. It initiates play/pause and other track controls for videos and music, answers and ends calls, and can also initiate voice commands such as Siri or voice dial. The buttons on either side of the multi-function button are volume +/- buttons. They allow you to easily adjust volume in an intuitive up/down vertical orientation.
