Bose QuietComfort 35

More than just the next generation of the Bose QC 25 headphones, this is the traveler’s must-have of 2016.


How did Bose build on one of the best-selling over-ear headphones ever? For starters, the QC 35 — the next generation of the famed QC 25 headphones — is wireless. But that was the easy, expected part. Every audio product in 2016 went wireless.

Delving further, Bose also gave the QC 35s a dual-microphone system for improved audio clarity and active noise cancellation, a new digital equalizing system so that audio quality doesn’t change whether you like to blast music or play it at a whisper, and a rechargeable battery good for 20 hours. Listen to that mic drop land loud and clear.
