This year we have already seen JBL enter the gaming headphone market. Now, Bose has also launched its first ‘hybrid’ gaming headphone. It is the more of a gamer’s version of QC35 II that comes with a detachable noise-rejecting boom microphone module. For Bose, it is their first 2-in-1 gaming and lifestyle headphone. Its key feature is Acoustic Noise Cancelling and Volume-Optimized Active EQ.
Priced at $329.95, the headphones are up for pre-orders in the US.
Some of the key feature here include Bose Acoustic Noise Cancelling, Noise-Rejecting Mic, optional PC desktop controller and voice assistant support. Bose even claims the QC35 II Gaming Headphone to run for up to 40 hours when wired and up to 20 hours while on-the-go. 15 minutes of quick charge can deliver up to 5 hours of wired gaming and 2.5 hours of wireless gaming.
The company’s signature Volume-Optimized Active EQ boosts the lows and highs to maintain the clarity in voices and balance as well no matter if you are on a busy street or a quiet room.
The optional PC desktop controller attaches with the PC using type-A port and lets users control the volume and cycle through four levels of mic monitoring. “This feature lets you self-regulate the sound of your own voice — and avoid shouting at your teammates,” says the firm.
Weighing 235 grams without the mic and 263 grams with boom mic, the Bose QC35 II headphone uses glass-filled nylon headband, leather top and suede bottom with soft foam for ear cushions. It is only available in Black with Copper colour accents.
