Bose is making a Google Assistant-enabled pair of headphones called the QuietComfort 35 II, 9to5Google reported on Thursday, citing internal promotional materials from the Framingham, Massachusetts-based consumer electronics manufacturer.
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. After looking at several Bose models, we have come to the conclusion that this particular button is not present on any other edition, meaning that after pressing it, Google Assistant will be enabled, allowing us to request several actions from the program. The images of these headphone were also leaked last month with one extra button and now it is confirmed that the extra button will be for assistant.

Earlier, Spain's Constitutional Court suspended legislation passed in the Catalan parliament which paved the way for the vote. City authorities have been forced to sign an agreement that federal money will not be used for referendum purposes.
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. On the packaging its headphones, Bose touts a " Google built-in Wizard", although it may seem a bit exaggerated, to the extent where you will still need your smartphone for Google Wizard works. The button will be situated on the left cup of the headphone and will not be equipped in any other Bose headphones. These headphones may launch within the next few weeks. Previously in August, The Verge revealed, in a report, that the company had accidentally included an image of the unreleased headphones in a marketing newsletter.
The upcoming headphones look very much like the current QC35, with the added button being the only notable physical difference. Meanwhile, battery life is rated at 20 hours and the headphones weigh 5.7 ounces. It is now believed that this is the Bose QuietComfort 35 II. Our tipster was told that the new models would cost the same, and we've seen a deposit receipt confirming that identical pricing. In the box, you'll get the headphones, a carry case, a USB cable, and a 3.5mm audio cable.
