Bose is reportedly developing its first pair of headphones that will come with Google Assistant baked in. The new product is said to be the successor to the Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones. Google itself added headphones to its support website recently which was a major indication that a product of this sort was on the horizon. Now there are more reports revealing what Bose has in the pipeline.
9to5Google reports that the Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones II will be the first pair of headphones that are created in partnership with Google for Google Assistant. The scribe claims to have seen Bose documentation that confirms this.
A fact sheet that Bose has made for employees reveals that the new headphones will have Google Assistant as well as noise cancellation. While the scribe can’t publish the product sheet, it shared the following bit about the Assistant:
“With your Google Assistant built in, you can control music, send & receive texts, and get answers using just your voice. Just press and hold the Action button, and start talking.”
Apparently, there’s going to be an “Action button” on the left cup that you won’t find on any other Bose headphones. Users will press this button to give Assistant a command and also use it to hear their notifications.
The existing QC35 Bose headphones are sold for $349.95 in the United States so it’s likely that the Google Assistant-enabled headphones might cost the same. It’s possible that they might be announced at Google’s October 4th event.
