Compré estos audífonos después de comparar entre varios, incluyendo los Sony WH-1000XM4, los cuales los descarté ya que no me gustó ni el diseño, ni la calidad de materiales, y el sonido me decepcionó un poco de acuerdo a las reseñas que lo promocionan. Hablando de los Bose QC35 II puedo decir que satisfacen mis necesidades. El material de construcción, diseño y funcionalidades me encantaron. El audio, como cualquier producto Bose, es excelente, y el aislamiento de ruido es muy bueno. Para los que comentan que tienen un bajo nivel de volumen, es cierto, pero no soy de los que le sube todo el volumen a los aufdífonos y el que tiene es suficiente. Este volumen, cabe aclarar, es mucho más alto si usas el cable de 3.5 mm. Como todos sabemos, por Bluetooth siempre hay pérdidas tanto de calidad como de potencia, y siempre se va a escuchar mejor con el cable que por bluetooth, eso es normal. Obvio que en el transporte y exteriores es mejor no usar cables, pero en casita puedes usarlo con tranquilidad y disfrutar de tu música con más nitidez. Sólo es necesario comentar que con cable no hay reducción de ruido, sólo por bluetooth. Tiene Alexa, mi asistente de voz consentido, y son muy cómodos. Los únicos peros que les pongo son: el cable de 3.5 mm no tiene controles de volumen, los materiales de las almohadillas se acaban muy rápido y la entrada de carga es micro USB. Por lo demás, excelente. Tienen dos años de garantía, lo que habla bien del nivel de confianza de la empresa. Casi todos los demás dan solo un año.

Pros

  • Buena reducción de ruido
  • Compatible con aplicaciones Bose
  • Excelente sonido
  • Compatibles con Alexa
  • Compatibles con Google Assistant
  • Cómodos
  • Trae cable de 3.5 mm
  • Dura 20 horas la baterías

Cons

  • No tienen cable de carga USB-C
  • Las almohadillas duran poco
