I have a pair of QC 35 ii on my head for the first time. Here are my initial impressions:
- The noise-canceling is really good. Even without music, it does a great job of eliminating background noise
- The Bose Connect App is really intuitive and well-designed (Particularly when compared to Sennheisers Captune app)
- Even though I’m on an iPhone X, the Google assistant integration is very useful and well executed. I was surprised at how useful Google Assistant can be on iOS. I haven’t tried these on Android yet, but I would say this integration would be a killer feature on an Android device.
- The sound is not great so far (particularly when compared to Sennheisers PXC 550). It sounds veiled and a little muffled with ANC on or off. I’ve been listening from my iPhone X using Apple Music. Apparently, the QC 35 has support for Apples AAC codec but there’s no way to tell if it’s actually working.
