Also included: custom Bluetooth said to offer a strong and consistent connection wherever you are, mics inside and outside the cups that respond to unwanted noise and filter it out practically immediately, a new EQ said to "balance sound at every volume, for any genre", and handy buttons for power, volume, play/pause, and answer/end calls on the right cup.

As for battery life, you get up to 20 hours from a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

If you're the earbud type, the Quietcomfort 30s offer the same noise-cancelling and wireless tech and about the same controls, but in a more compact form. On the downside, battery life is lower at 10 hours. If you're worried about comfort, the 30s feature StayHear tips, said to "eliminate the pressure and aches of conventional ear tips for hours and hours of wear."

The QC35s come in black or grey and can be pre-ordered starting June 5 for $350; the 30s come in black/grey and will launch in September for $300.
