Wireless headphones became common during 2014, and now they are frequently used by everyone because of their portability and ease of use. The battery life of headphones have also improved a lot, and now headphones users do not have to worry about the battery going down while they are on the go. The NFC technology is the most advanced one that has made it easier for the music lovers to connect their headphones to their smartphones.

Bose QuietComfort 35 is one of the most excellent noise-cancelling headphones and has wireless capabilities. They are very comfortable to wear and deliver excellent sound quality to spice up the listener’s mood.

Design:

When it comes to looks and design, the Bose QuietComfort 35 is matchless. These headphones have a very elegant and stylish design. The outer portion of the ear cups is made up of smooth and sleek metal while the headband and frame are plastic-made. The ear cups have faux-leather that covers them and stays cool during long listening sessions. The headband is also well-padded so that the wearer does not get irritated with the hard plastic. The ‘Comfort’ in these headphones’ name comes from the extra support they provide to the listener. The weight of the two ear cups is evenly distributed, and this makes them very lightweight and comfortable to wear. The Bose QuiteComfort 35 is very lightweight and weighs just 234 grams. I have personally tried these headphones for an extended listening session, and they were as light as a breeze throughout the period.

These headphones come in two colors: jet black and silvery gray. All the controls are provided on the right ear cup which include buttons for volume control, a multi-function button for pausing and accepting calls, and a switch that turns on Bluetooth and connects different devices to the headphones. These controls are easily accessible with the right hand. The left ear cup contains a 2.5 mm jack for connecting the headphones through a wire to another device. Pairing these headphones is very easy; all you need to do is to use the power slider and select the option from your device. These headphones also have a magnificent capability to switch between multiple paired devices. You can easily pair your smartphone and laptop, both with your headphones, and you can switch between the devices with ease.

The battery life of Bose QuietComfort 35 is excellent as it can run for around 20 hours when you use it wirelessly and if you use a wired connection, these headphones can run till 40 hours. I have used them easily for several days after fully charging them, and they performed very well without being charged in between. When the battery is low, the headphones indicate by playing a short audio notification. These headphones also include a mike which allows them to be used as a headset.

Performance:

The QuietComfort 35 uses aptX Bluetooth, and a standard Bluetooth which allows the listener to do Bluetooth music streaming. The Apple’s devices are only compatible with standard Bluetooth while the aptX Bluetooth allows music streaming. The wireless performance of these headphones is superb as they deliver a clear and crisp sound which never gets distorted and flattened. The soundstage is also perfect and produces exceptionally well results when paired with a good quality recording. The QuietComfort 35 headphones have enough punch in their bass, and that can be noticed when you listen to a fast track, and this makes the song more rhythmic. The Active EQ feature boosts the bass frequencies when you lower the volume, and thus adjusts the bass level to a good extent.

The best feature of these headphones is noise cancellation as it consistently cancels all the frequencies, whether high or low. The padding around the ear cups acts as a seal to the ears and cancels all the noise such as rumble of a plane, the chattering of people, and other sounds. If you are a beginner, the noise-cancellation feature will let you feel as if you are in a closed cabin; and soon you will start liking it because it allows you to sit in peace and to listen to your music only. The noise-cancellation feature cancels out even your own voice. The microphones also perform very well and can catch your voice in spite of being far away from your mouth. I have used these headphones in my office where the environment is very noisy, and they performed very well while I was in a video call. The Bose QuietComfort 35 is also perfect in muffling sound in a noisy environment and is as effective as the Bose QuietComfort 25 which was wired. The headphones deliver an amazing sound quality. However, their sound quality is better when you use it in wired form, because the digital processing in wireless mode affects the sound quality in a very slight and unnoticeable manner.

The QuietComfort 35 also falls into the category of expensive headphones.
