- Bose has launched the QC 35 II gaming headset
- The headphones are equipped with a detachable microphone and a desktop controller.
- The headset offers up to 40 hours of battery life in wired mode and up to 20 hours in wireless mode.
Bose’s Quiet Comfort 35 II has long been the gold standard when it comes to premium active noise cancellation headsets. It now has a successor in the form of the Noise Canceling Headphones 700, but the story of QC 35 II is far from over. The headset is still a great buy at its discounted price, and Bose only treated it with games to make it even more attractive.
The company outfitted the QC 35 II with a Discord and TeamSpeak certified microphone and desktop volume control to turn it into gaming headphones. The redesigned headphones, dubbed the Quiet Comfort 35 II Gaming Headset, are priced at $ 329.95. The package includes the same old QC 35 II headphones and a detachable gaming module that consists of a microphone that plugs into your PC through a 3.5mm headphone jack. Bose claims that the microphone will reduce background noise so your voice can be heard loud and clear.

There is also a PC desktop controller in the box that allows you to decrease or increase the master volume and cycle through four levels of microphone monitoring. “With this feature, you can regulate the sound of your own voice – and not yell at your teammates,” claims the company. Bose also promises a battery life of up to 40 hours in wired game mode and up to 20 hours in wireless mode.
All other features remain the same as the original QC 35 II, including one-touch support from Google Assistant / Alexa. We can’t vouch for the microphone and PC desktop controller, but the sound quality from the headphones is still some of the best you get on the market.
