That’s right. Bose is in the business of gaming headphones too. We cannot attest the performance on the gaming aspect, but assuming that it is good, then you would have the best of both worlds.
Not surprisingly, Bose is marketing it as a headphones that would have your gaming and lifestyle needs covered. Speaking of gaming, Bose has gotten onboard the Esports industry by being the official gaming headset for League of Legends Esports Global Events. Hmmm. Interesting…
Aesthetically, it is not loud like gaming headphones traditionally are. It is the usual classy Bose aesthetic of the QC35 II, but with two extra accessories: a gaming module featuring a wired boom microphone with a 3.5 mm jack and an optional USB desktop dial for volume control and for cycling through four levels of mic monitoring so, you know, you won’t find yourself shouting at your teammates.
It is worthy to note that the boom mic is Discord-and TeamSpeak-cerified. This is probably the go-to headset if you demand good audio quality and need a gaming-focused cans.
Bose is proposing wired for gaming and wireless for on-the-go music enjoyment. In wired mode, you get 40 hours of battery life and up to 20 hours in wireless mode.
The headphone will play well with consoles, PC as well as mobile devices. It is also one of the few gaming headphones that boast active noise cancellation. So that’s something to consider if you are in market a hybrid headset.
Just like the company says, it is best of both worlds. But this best of both worlds does not come cheap. It will set you back at US$329.95. If the price sounds reasonable to you, you can pre-order a pair now.
