Despite all the recent activity around Apple and its latest devices, Google Assistant quietly continues to integrate with more and more partners. The latest device to receive the virtual assistant is Bose’s Quietcomfort headphones, which are really the standard when it comes to noise-canceling headphones.
The new Quietcomfort 35 II ($349) receives a dedicated button that helps users quickly access Google Assistant without the need to interact with their phone. This new button can also be used to adjust noise-canceling settings, which is helpful for users who don’t use Google Assistant.
Additionally, Bose has also introduced its all-new SoundWear Companion Speaker ($299), which is a collar, of sorts, that sites on your shoulders and uses upward-facing speakers to surround you with sound. It’s an intriguing device that let’s you enjoy music without closing you off from the world around you. It also integrates with you phone and vibrates when you receive a call. It offers 12 hours of battery life and is sweat and water resistant, so it should easily holdup to rigorous workouts or inclement weather.
