I came into the office a few weeks ago and Nick was sitting at his desk working with over the ear wireless headphones on. I started talking to him and got no reaction. I spoke a bit louder and eventually he heard me and took off the headphones. I said “what are those headphones you have on?” He said “the new Bose wireless headphones, they are great.” Joel heard us talking about them and chimed in. He had just gotten a pair and seconded Nick’s recommendation. So I went to my desk and ordered a pair on Amazon.
A few days later I was watching The Circus and my friend John Heilemann walks into an arena where a big campaign event was happening wearing these headphones. I tweeted at him:
@jheil I saw you rocking the new bluetooth Bose headphones on the show tonight. How do you like them? I just got a pair myself

As I tweeted back to John, the thing I love most is that the bluetooth implementation on these headphones is fantastic. You can pair with multiple devices at the same time and the headphones manage the interrupts. When I am paired with my desktop and my smartphone and listening to music or a podcast or a video on my computer and my phone rings, the headphones pause the computer connection and my phone rings on my headset. The mic on the headset is great and I use it for conference calls all the time.
If you are in the market for a new wireless headphone, check out the Bose Quiet Comfort 35s. You won’t regret it.
