Bose QuietComfort 35 II
Cnet rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
The good: The Bose adds a dedicated button for Google Assistant, but it can be programmed for other functions, too. Retains its predecessor’s top-of-the-line active-noise canceling, excellent wireless Bluetooth sound and extra-comfortable design. Works in wired mode with included cord if battery dies.
The bad: Battery isn’t replaceable; same apparent design and performance as previous model.
The cost: $350
The bottom line: Existing QC35 owners don’t need to upgrade, but the addition of a dedicated Google Assistant button gives the already excellent wireless noise-canceling headphone an extra bit of personality.
