Bose QuietComfort 35 II Gaming Headset aims for a different crowd

Bose's QuietComfort 35 II, or simply QC35 II, has more or less been the standard of many Bluetooth ANC headphones, making the top of many charts of many sites and reviews. It has been nearly three years, however, since the QC35 II first launched, and many new ANC headphones, both wireless and wired, have popped up over the years, including Bose's own first QuietComfort earbuds.

Bose to close 119 retail stores around the world, focus on online sales
