Not quite as good as the curry’s deal a few weeks ago but still a great price with the 2 year guarantee. Also available on Amazon for the same at the moment.

2 year warranty standard from Bose, regardless of retailer.
Lead deal editor
Bose's highly-renowned QuietComfort 35 headphones have been upgraded. As well as the company's famed noise cancellation technology and wireless connectivity, the QC35 II have Alexa and Google Assistant built-in. Hook them up to your smart device in an instant, relish the comfort as you put them on, and glory in the sound quality. Music is deep, powerful, and balanced, and with Bose's world-class noise cancellation blocking out distracting external sound, every note is clearer. No matter how noisy the world around you is, it's just you and your music. And with the addition of Alexa and Google Assistant you can interact with your smart device ...with just your voice.

Acoustic Noise Cancellation
The QC35 headphones let you focus on your music, movies and videos. And they reduce what you don't want to hear. Like a crowded city street, cabin noise inside an airplane or a busy office. Acoustic Noise Cancellation and other unique electronics make it happen. Even the comfy ear cushions give you an extra level of quiet by sealing out some of the world around you. And be assured of beautifully balanced Bose sound quality due to optimised EQ at any volume.

Bluetooth & NFC Wireless
Say goodbye to the wires by linking your headphones to your smart device through Bluetooth, or with one-tap NFC. With noise-cancelling turned on, you’ll get a massive 20-hours of wireless listening and 40-hours of wired listening (cable included) per charge. This way, you’ll get all the benefits of wireless without the worry of running out of juice. And if the battery should run out, just plug in as normal with the included cable to keep the music playing.

Simple Control
Download the free Bose Connect app (iOS & Android) to switch between connected Bluetooth devices at the click of a button. This way, you can switch from your iPad to your iPhone to take a call automatically. By using the app, you can adjust the level of noise cancellation too, so you can let in as much or as little of the outside world as you like, with three different levels. This app also lets you download software updates, read product tips and tinker with your set’s settings.

Alexa & Google Assistant Built-in
Optimised for both Alexa and the Google Assistant, you can choose which is right for you for help on the go. Press the Action button to enjoy entertainment, get information and manage your day... all without looking at your phone. A noise-rejecting dual microphone ensures accurate response and clear phone calls in noisy environments. If you don’t use the Google Assistant or Alexa, you can still use the Action button to adjust your level of noise cancellation, and the multi-function button still lets you access your phone's own smart assistant.

It can help you get home, remind you to pick up something from the shops, or let you know the weather forecast. The list goes on and on and you don't need to glance at your smart phone...

Had these for about two years. Still the best headphones I’ve ever had

I came here to say exact same thing. 2.5 years for me, I have tried multiple ANC headphones in range of £50 to £300 and I have returned every single one of them (bad ANC, bad sound). These QC35 II are superior at everything. Get them, use them and you will listen to music like you never did before.

Currently got some Amazon 40 quid special that look similar to these Bose that have actually been quite good.


I got these on the £179 deal from Currys a month ago. I am not an audiophile and also have a cheap taotronics pair (bh040) that I was (and still am) perfectly happy with, but these are so much better. Music that I have been listening to for years has much more detail with these and just sounds bigger. I guess you would also hear the difference with the B & O, or premium Sony, Sennheisers etc

I’m pretty sure the Costco ones are series 1, I think these ones are series 2

Don't get your hopes up for that - it's doesn't work well with speech; great for planes, trains, cars, etc.

My experience since lockdown with the family around while working from home(always work from home but normally alone!) the Bose have been invaluable in drowning out most of the distractions.

Later Edit: I am listening to music or podcasts, I’m not sitting with them on and nothing playing. Yes you will hear voices with them on and no other sound input(music/podcast).

I didn’t buy mine for lockdown I bought them a couple of years back for what danopia mentioned, planes, trains etc.

So are these not great for speach?
I bought these full price when they came out and I don’t regret it at all.

Whether on the train to work or on a plane to drown out the screaming and air con they are top notch

Not really, the newer Bose headphones better for that
Look exactly like £130 Sonys. Others have the same casing too. Can’t they make an effort?

Bit of a placebo - these things don't have anything like the processing power to cancel out anything but background hiss/hum/rumble - basically anything that can be "averaged". In fact, on flights I can hear the hosts/hostesses clearer with these on as it strips out the background noise.
What about the sound link 2
What’s the general consensus on these vs Sony WH-1000XM3?

Noise cancelling generally isn’t very effective for speech. It’s more for ambient noise/low frequency sounds like those on planes and trains
The Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) supports 2 Bluetooth A2DP audio codecs (AAC, SBC) so thanks but Bose is miles away after B&W PX...
I replaced a broken set (had them years) of QC35II’s with Bose 700s (newest model after the QC35ii) and the Bose 700s were decent, but call quality was a lot worse than QC35ii on the receivers end (whoever i was talking to), the noise cancelling was the same for me on my end, but noise cancelling was blocking out music playing in the background in my home to whoever i’m on a video/voice call. All these things didn’t happen with the QC35II headphones. Lastly, the ‘touch controls’ on the 700s are awful (imo) because they are not physical buttons like the QC35II, therefore if you’re wearing gloves etc the controls wont work as it’s ‘touch’, and even without gloves, using the headphones daily for 2 months, i didn’t get used to the swipe/tap gestures of the controls to skip/rewind/pause/play etc.

Personal preference obviously, and if you’re spending £200+ on headphones you should test them first but if anyone is debating between these (QC35II) or the newer Bose 700 then i’d go for the QC35ii.

In the end i sold the 700s on eBay 2 months after buying them, and then bought another set of Bose QC35II.

You mean they have been copied then?
I've had these for a few years and love them. When turning the noise cancelling on with no music, speech can still be heard but when I put music on at a medium volume it cancels out everything including speech.
Great headphones. Had mine for a few years now - they've been used almost every day and have been bashed around quite a lot (can't be bothered with the case), though still look and sound amazing. The charge is maybe starting to be less efficient and the leather starting to get a bit manky, however. Definitely a great purchase.

There’s a review on amazon which says they fell apart in 6 months. How’re you finding the build quality?

This is true, as a headphone is terrible, but great for listening.
Just ordered a pair from Amazon Germany for £204.

The noise cancellation on the Sonys was so good that whilst I couldn't hear a thing, it gave me chronic jawache and vertigo. Shame as they were great headphones
I still love that how comfy these are !!!
Lol, I agree, they are the best if your looking for a bit of peace and quiet, but that's just the problem, it's so good they are glued to my head and everyone else's. I'm so paranoid about the Bluetooth waves causing brain cancer. I'm gona wrap my self in foil soon. Lol
Edited by: "shuaibjacobs1" 15th Jun
These or the Sony alternative?
Can these connect to multiple devices?

I was thinking of using a wireless headsets to a TV (which is old school flat screen and doesn't have any wireless features) using some sort of Bluetooth adaptor. But didn't want to have to re-pair with my phone every time I went to use my phone with it.
These are fantastic. I got mine from Curry’s in the deal a few weeks ago (plus a further 8% discount through work!) and they’ve been invaluable whilst working from home with kids here.

FYI the noise cancellation strength setting can be amended in the app. I think there was 3x levels to set it at.

Confirming comments above that they will give a whole new experience if listening to music.
