If you’re in the market for your first pair of high quality wireless headphones or upgrading from an older pair, Bose’s QC 35 II headphones should be on your list of products to consider.
I picked up a pair of these headphones during Amazon Prime Day for $100 off. Normally, I like to try headphones before I buy them, but the deal was just to good. I had to scoop it up!
Here’s a couple thoughts I have so far. As I spend more time with these headphones, I’ll update this review.
As soon as I put the Bose QC 35 II headphones on my head for the first time, I immediately sensed this product’s great quality. Bose did a great job with the cups that go over the ears as well as the upper band that stretches across the head. They fit great and are easy adjustable for different head sizes. Coming from a lightweight pair of Bose headphones with no Bluetooth or noise canceling capabilities, I did notice that these headphones felt heavier. That’s likely due to the technology inside though. I’ve also been wearing earbuds for so long now.
Fit is important, but what are a pair of headphones without good sound quality? As soon as I turned my music on, I was blown away with the impressive audio these headphones deliver. You’ll notice the bass and clarity right away. Because I stream compressed songs through Amazon Music, these headphones probably aren’t getting pushed to their full potential. I’m hoping to try some uncompressed music at some point to see if I can pick out a difference.
As for the noise canceling feature, it blocked out all of the noise around me. When the headphones were on, I basically just saw lips moving but heard no voices. I’m excited to give these a try on an airplane and other loud environments. This feature was really important to me, and Bose hit the mark.
I’ve been impressed with the headphones thus far. I haven’t had a lot of experience using Bose’s app, the calling feature or Amazon Alexa at the time of this review, however, I will update it as I do.
If you’re in the market for headphones, I recommend trying a pair out first. Some stores like Target and Best Buy have displays where you can test headphones. If you’re looking to buy a pair around a major sale event (Amazon Prime Day, Black Friday or Cyber Monday), head to the store a few weeks in advance so you have time to try out different models. That will make it easier to jump on deals.
