Last month, The Verge published a photo of the upcoming wireless headphones, which the site acquired through an official newsletter from Bose. After looking at several Bose models, we have come to the conclusion that this particular button is not present on any other edition, meaning that after pressing it, Google Assistant will be enabled, allowing us to request several actions from the program. Reportedly called the QuietComfort 35 II, this seems to be a direct addition to the QuietComfort line, but suffixed with "II" instead of being named something like Quietcomfort 40 or 45. Now, 9to5Google has found out the difference between the upcoming models and the original headphone model and it's Google Assistant. In fact, a user of Reddit claims to have seen a picture of the box packaging on a retail site online. It's good to see Google finally expanding its virtual assistant to more devices. In terms of design, the QuietComfort 35 II resembles its predecessor and no major changes are made to the headphones. Like the existing models, they come in black and silver. Meanwhile, battery life is rated at 20 hours and the headphones weigh 5.7 ounces. The new QC35 II will include a carrying case, USB cable for charging and a 3.5mm audio cable for optional wired listening.
Google's October event appears to be the ideal time and place to announce the new Google Assistant Bose headphones. Now, we think Bose will be next. The company might also unveil two other "bisto" headphones at the event, since devices codenamed as "apollo" and "scout" were also spotted within the Google app earlier this week.
In a report, the blog details how the pair of headphones in question will be the Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones II, which will reportedly be "one of Google's first partnered smart headphone devices that feature the Google Assistant".
