The Bose QuietComfort 35s offer great sound quality and the best noise cancelling out of any headphones I've tried. They're super comfortable, and despite the fact that they don't use the newer AptX Bluetooth standard, the wireless doesn't harm their sound quality one bit.

So first things first, nothing with the sound quality has changed here. Even though these have the Google Assistant and Android Oreo now has LDAC, aptX, and aptX HD support for higher quality streaming via Bluetooth—you won’t find that here. You need two to tango with these codecs so when one side doesn’t support a codec, they default down to the standard SBC which is the same as the original. That doesn’t mean it’s bad, the average person will probably find these more than great.

The QC35 has the same comfy fit, same top-notch noise canceling, identical controls on the right ear cup -- yes, you can access Siri on iPhones -- and the same battery life at up to 20 hours in wireless mode with noise canceling on.
