Design
The Bose QuietComfort 35 II have a decently versatile design that's easy-to-use and very comfortable. You can wear them for hours without any fatigue, thanks to the very soft padding on the ear cups. Their build, comfort level, portability, and case are pretty much identical to the original Bose QuietComfort 35 but their control scheme is a little different. They now have a dedicated button to switch between noise cancelling modes and to activate Google Assistant. It's a decent improvement; being able to turn off the noise cancelling and still use the headphones felt like a missing feature on the previous model. Unfortunately, they're still not the best headphones for the gym due to their slightly loose fit and over-ear design that's not as breathable for exercising or sports.
StyleComfort
The Bose QC 35 II look identical to the original QuietComfort 35 but with an additional button on the left ear cup. They have the same aesthetics, design, and button layout (for the rest of the controls) and come in the same color schemes at launch. The all-black model reviewed has a high-end yet understated appeal, but there is also a silver/grey alternative. If you want them to look more flashy, you can also design a custom color scheme, but it'll cost you a bit more.The Bose QuietComfort 35 II are one of the most comfortable over-ears that we've tested so far, and a bit more comfortable than the Sony WH-1000XM3, and the newly released Bose 700 Headphones. They're not too tight on the head, the headband and ear cups are well-padded, and they're lightweight. They have the same fit and weight as the original QC 35, which you can wear for hours at a time and not feel any fatigue. Breathability may be an issue during long listening sessions, but not comfort.
PortabilityBuild Quality
The Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II are mid-sized over-ears, which means they won't be the most portable headphones to carry around on your person. They fold into a more compact format, and the ear cups also lay flat to take less space. However, they're a bit too bulky to have them on you at all times.The build quality of the QuietComfort35 II is the same as the original model. The plastic used for the ear cups is dense and should be able to handle a few drops without getting damaged. The headband is decently flexible and has a metal frame to reinforce the build which makes them a bit more durable. However, they still have a lot of plastic in their design, which is decently durable but feels a bit cheap for their price range, especially when compared to other headphones like the Parrot Zik 3.0, the Oppo PM-3, the B&O PLAY H9i, or the Audio-Technica ATH-DSR9BT.
StabilityControls
The Bose QuietComfort 35 Series 2 are decently stable but not tight enough on the head to be suitable for more intense exercises. The ear cups sway a little when exercising, but thanks to the wireless design you don't have to worry about the audio cable getting caught on something and yanking the headphones off your head.The Bose QuietComfort35 II has a slightly improved control scheme over the original QC35. They have an additional button on the left ear cup that will activate Google Assistant/Alexa or switch between noise cancelling modes. The rest of the buttons are pretty much the same as on the previous model. They deliver great tactile feedback. The functionalities include call/music, track-skipping, and volume controls. The buttons feel a little cramped on the bottom of the right ear cup, but they're easy-to-use and you get accustomed to them fairly quickly.
Sound
The Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II are a very good sounding pair of closed-back over-ear headphones (they are one of the best closed-back headphones we've tested). They sound nearly identical to the older model. Their bass is consistent and deep, with just the right amount of thump and punch. This makes them very versatile and suitable for all types of content from classical to dubstep or podcasts. They also have very well-balanced mid and treble ranges, although some may find them a tad too emphasized on vocals and leads. They also have great imaging, but like most other closed-back headphones, their soundstage is not speaker-like and out-of-head.
BassMid
The bass of the Bose QuietComfort35 II is excellent. Low-frequency extension is at 10Hz, which is great. Low-bass is over our target by about 2dB which is quite flat. This indicates a deep and thumpy bass, capable of producing the low rumbling sounds common to EDM, hip-hop, dubstep, and film scores. Additionally, mid-bass and high-bass are also flat and within 2dB of our target.This Series of Bose have a great mid-range. The range's response is virtually flat and within 1dB of our target, which is remarkable. The deviation from our target in high-mid is very subtle, but could make the vocals and lead instruments a tad forward sounding. Overall, their mid-range is very well-balanced, ensuring a clear reproduction of vocals and lead instruments.
Isolation
The Bose QuietComfort 35 II have a good noise isolation performance but are a bit leaky. Their noise cancelling feature has unfortunately gotten worse since the latest firmware update, but should still be good enough for most commuters. They're not as good of an option for use in noisy environments as they used to be, though, which is disappointing for frequent flyers. In addition, they also leak quite a bit, which can be distracting to your colleagues, especially if you work in a noise-sensitive office.
Noise IsolationOverall Leakage
We've re-tested the noise isolation of the Bose QC35 II and the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 after noticing a flaw in our testing methodology for both headsets. For the QC35II this means that while the 4.5.2 update did reduce a bit the noise cancellation performance of our unit but less than we had initially reported. This has changed the score, and the text has been adjusted to reflect this.
The ANC (active noise cancellation) of the Bose QC35 II is pretty good and within the ballpark the Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, but not quite as efficient as it use to be prior to the 4.5.2 update. In the bass range, where the rumble of airplane and bus engines sit, they achieve more than 19dB of isolation, which is good and one of the highest we have measured. In the mid-range, important for cancelling out speech, they get 25dB of isolation, which is great. They also achieve a good 36dB of isolation in the treble range, which is occupied by sharp sounds such as S and Ts.
The leakage performance of the Bose QuietComfort 35 II is average. The majority of their leakage is in the mid-range, between 400Hz and 3kHz. This means that their leakage will sound fuller and more distracting than that of in-ears and earbuds. So although the overall level of their leakage is not very loud, people around you will be able to hear your music if you blast it, even in moderately noisy places like a bus. If you like to listen at high volumes, take a look at the less leaky Jabra Elite 85h.
Microphone
The performance of the Bose QuietComfort 35 II's integrated microphone is mediocre. Speech recorded/transmitted with the mic will sound thin and noticeably muffled. This could make understanding the speech a bit difficult. They also don't fare well in noisy environments and will struggle to separate speech from background noise even in moderately loud environments, such as a busy street.
Battery
The Bose QC35 II have a great battery life, that's slightly better than the original QC35. They're suitable headphones for long flights or road trips, and they have an adjustable timer that helps prolong the battery life. Unfortunately, you can't use them while they're charging, although they do not take too long to fully charge.
Connectivity
The Bose QuietComfort 35 II, like the previous model, are a Bluetooth headset that can pair simultaneously with multiple devices, supports NFC, and comes with a regular audio cable. They have a slightly improved wireless range but a worse latency performance than the original model. This makes them a bit worse for watching videos but it's not a huge difference and won't be noticeable for most. They both won't be ideal for watching movies or gaming and only come with a regular audio cable that does not have an inline microphone.
BluetoothWired
The Bose QuietComfort 35 II headphones can pair simultaneously with 2 devices and support NFC. Like the other wireless Bose models, they have an easy-to-pair power switch that can be quickly toggled to put the headphones in pairing mode. They also keep the last sync devices in memory for automatic pairing when you turn the headphones on. They're one of the best Bluetooth headphones we've tested.The Bose QC35 II come with a simple audio cable with no in-line remote or USB adapter. This means they do not have a mic that is compatible with consoles. The cable is also a 1/8TRS to 1/16TRS connector which is not as easily available as more standard aux cable.
Wireless RangeBase/Dock
The Bose QuietComfort 35 II have a very good wireless range that's slightly better than the previous model. They maintained a stable connection up to 41ft and have a decent line-of-sight range of 122ft. This makes them a solid option for moderately sized offices, but their range is not as good as the Beats Studio3 Wireless or the Microsoft Surface Headphones.The Bose QC35 II do not have a base/dock.
