The Bose QC 35 are fantastic pair of headphones living up to its top class noice cancelling reputation. These headphones might be targeted to commuters and travelers in first hand, however it does work as well for your gaming experience. As for the noice reduction the battery life amounts to around 20 hours, which we find more than sufficent for daily usage. New for the Qc35 compared to its predecessor CQ25 is that the battery is now charged via its own usb cable instead of alkaline batteries. A very welcomed solution in our opinion.
What we also like with the Bose Qc35 is the simplicity. It is easy to set up and doesn’t have many strange functions that can mess up your gaming experience. Having used the QuietComfort headphones for years our experience with the QC35 is that no matter where you are, what game you play or what you listen to or do, it does the job for you in an impressive manner.
The Bose Qc35 use bluetooth which we love, however would have liked to see it coming with an audio cable that has microphone. The cable that comes in its package is just a standard audio cable. Some PC gamers might find the bluetooth sufficient for gaming without too much lag, others don’t. As for Playstation and Xbox users there is no direct connectivity for the cable. Feel free to check out our QC35 to PS4 tutorial here. We suggest any gamer that requires a microphone to buy the Bose QC25 cable for samsung/android which will give you both wired audio and and microphone compatibility for your Bose Qc35 headphones. It is available on Amazon here.
The verdict is that the Bose Qc35 are great headphones for allround usage including gaming. We recommend this for you who values active noise cancelling and want to get more usability out of your headphones than a great gaming experience.
