Bose may launch a gamer version of QC35 II headphones with removable microphone accessory
At the beginning of the year, JBL decided to confront companies like Razer, Corsair, and HyperX in the market for gaming headsets with the launch of the Quantum line. The devices have the company’s experience in the audio market as a differential, with some of its most recent models even bringing Hi-Fi certification for high definition audio. The line arrived last month and already had three new models announced here last week.
Given this, Bose seems to want to follow in the footsteps of its rival and may be preparing a gamer version of QC35 II, as discovered by the 9to5Google website when analyzing the APK of Bose Connect, the company’s headset management application. The publication found a device codenamed “Tibbers”, possibly in reference to the teddy bear of the character Annie from League of Legends, as well as details about a removable microphone, which disables the device’s Bluetooth when it is replaced.
Also during the analysis, an explanatory video on the functioning of the microphone could also be seen, in addition to the possible name of the launch, which should be marketed as “Bose QC35 II Gaming Headset”. As with the JBL Quantum line, Bose’s technologies and expertise in audio should be the main appeal of the new phone.
It is not possible to know if the company will bring its gamer phone, but there are great chances of that. The manufacturer arrived in the country in October last year, selling its products through the main retailers in the market. Bose brought a complete line of equipment including speakers and headphones, such as the QC35 II itself, which is available for a little more than $462.
