Bose unveils two updates to its headphone line with the truly wireless SoundSport Free headphones from just two little earbuds and the iconic QC35 becomes the first headphone to offer seamless voice access to your Google Assistant, as well as featuring new settings to control the noise around you.
With the SoundSport Free headphones weighing just .35 ounces and measures at just 1.1 inches high, the new antenna system on the device maintains a strong and reliable connection between each other or phone up to 30 feet away, whether it’s in your pocket, gym bag, or strapped to your arm. Other key details include Bose digital signal processing, volume optimized EQ, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, water-resistant, delivering up to 5 hours of powerful, clear music and it includes a charging case that doubles as storage.
The updated QC35 II headphones is essentially similar to its predecessor with its noise cancelling capabilities, audio performance and up to 20 hours of battery life. The same controls remain on the right earcup with the audio volume and the multi-function button for incoming calls and accessing Siri. A new addition is an action button on the left earcup to connect to your Google Assistant, without having to grab your phone, unlock it, and find the app.
The new SoundSport Free headphones can be pre-ordered today and will be available in early October for $250 USD in triple black, followed by midnight blue and yellow citron colorways later this year. The QC35 II are now available for a price tag of $350 USD in choices of black and silver.
