Bose will reportedly launch the successor to the Bose QuietComfort 35. As per reports, the purported successor to the QuietComfort 35 was spotted on the Federal Communications Commission. Launched in 2016, the over-the-ear headphones by Bose was quite popular amongst music enthusiasts. A year later Bose had launched another pair of headphones with some minor changes and an extra button. The QuietComfort 45, on the other hand, may launch with many upgrades over its predecessor, but there may not be a lot of difference in the design.

Winfuture has shared the leaked pictures of the Bose QuietComfort 45. The images reveal that there is not much of a change in the design. The QuietComfort 45 features the same foldable design and over-ear ear pads made of synthetic leather. The headphones seem to have a dedicated port for USB Type-C, which wasn't available in the previous QC models. The reports say that Bose is expected to introduce changes under the hood of the wireless headphones.

Although the Bose QuietComfort 45 has appeared on FCC, it is not clear when Bose will launch the headphones in the market. It would be interesting to see what all Bose has included in one of its best-selling devices. The QuietComfort range became popular because of its premium finish and unparalleled sound quality. The comfort in the QC 35 was also top-notch as is expected from a brand like Bose.

Bose QC 35 and its successor QC 35 II were considered the best in the market when it came to wireless noise-cancelling headphones. It was great in terms of look as well as sound quality. The QC 35 and QC 35 II featured the same classy and sleek design, there was just an extra action button on the QC 35 II. The QC 35 II came with a battery life of 20 hours on a single charge and 40 hours with the wire hooked up and without noise cancellation.

We got a chance to review the QC 35 II when it was launched and here is what we felt about the headphones: If you are in the market for a pair of noise-cancelling headphones and can afford to shell out 30,000 rupees, then the Bose QC 35 II make for an excellent, almost no-brainer buy. They sound crisp and detailed, have the best noise cancellation tech around are supremely comfortable.If you own the previous Bose QC 35 though, there is no reason to upgrade - you can live without the somewhat gimmicky Google Assistant functionality.
