The publication states that it obtained Bose documentation that proves the QuietComfort 35 II wireless over-the-ear headphones will feature the AI, making it one of the headsets that Google is rumoured to be working under the project name 'Bisto.' Bisto, for the uninitiated, is what Google calls this category of devices within the Google app code.
Bose Australia charges A$499 for the original QuietComfort 35.
A priori, the presence of Google Assistant will be the only major new addition to the Quiet Comfort 35 II compared to the old model.
Packaging of the headphones also leaked on Reddit, which displayed an Android logo alongside another logo indicating "Google Assistant built-in".
Google Assistant will allow users to ask for the song they want to listen to through voice, the video of the Bose's upcoming headphones shows. The pricing is expected to be similar to the last year's model - $350. If Bose QuietComfort 35 II is anything like its predecessor, you can expect to see great noise-cancelling support and premium build.
The upcoming headphones look very much like the current QC35, with the added button being the only notable physical difference. These headphones will come in black and silver variants.
Battery life of the new Bose wireless headphones is listed as 20 hours, while the device itself will only weigh 5.7 ounces. In the box, you'll get the headphones, a carry case, a USB cable, and a 3.5mm audio cable. Now, we think Bose will be next.
The official announcement of this partnership is likely to come at Google's October 4th hardware event, alongside its new Pixel smartphones.
Bose might be Google's next partner.
News outlet 9to5Google reported on Thursday that Bose was working with Google to launch Google Assistant-powered QuietComfort 35 II headphones, citing promotional material.
