Bose QuietComfort 35 II is one of the best noise cancelling headphones from a reputed brand. Compared to many others, this one offers users the choice to tweak the ANC level through software and the latest version of the headphones also features a brand new button.
A button dedicated to beckon Google Assistant from your Android phone. The second generation model is about to hit stores shortly and even before it did, a Reddit user has got hold of the photos of the box. The company calls it the action button which will open Google Assistant and should be able to accept voice commands from you without having to take your phone out.
Bose prefers to call it as “Google Assistant Built-in” which is technically wrong because unless your headphones are connected to an Android smartphone, it won’t be able to do any tasks or provide users the information they need. According to another post by 9to5 Google, users have to press and hold the button to speak to the voice AI.
We do guess that it may be specific to Google services but if the action button could be configured in such a way to wake up Siri on an iPhone when connected via Bluetooth, it would be a cool addition and make Bose QuietComfort 35 II the best headphones that you could purchase with unparalleled sound clarity and great isolation from external noises.
