Re: Gaming Accessories available for vanilla QC 35 II?

I'm sorry, but I refuse to believe that it's impossible to offer the gaming attachments separately. You have a large consumer base of users who already own the QC 35 II's because they have been out for several years. At least some of your customers who already own these headphones are gamers. Selling the gaming attachments strictly with a brand new set of headphones does not help needs specific to the gamers who are already your customers.

 

I first bought these headphones to benefit me as a student, and they served their purpose well. Now that I am no longer a student, I need headphones that have a mic that's suitable for gaming. By not selling the gaming attachment as an accessory to support your large number of customers who already own the vanilla QC's, you are forcing my hand to buy an entire new gaming headset (from another company, by the way), which I don't really look forward to. I suspect that there are many more of your customers who share the same feelings.

Re: Gaming Accessories available for vanilla QC 35 II?

Congratulations! Looks like you succeeded in launching a product that the gaming community loves. But there is also a sizeable market of loyal Bose customers like myself who is not a gamer but sees the value of buying the mic accessory to adapt to the changing market needs. I bought my QC 35s mainly for long haul flights across the Pacific and sometimes across the Atlantic, it has served me well for many years and I never complained that I can never make a good phone call on my QC 35s. Since my last long haul flight was in 1st qtr 2020 and may not happen for another half a year my QC 35s have been parked since its not as effective for my current need for web conferencing. I ended up using a different headset for my web conferencing needs. I am willing to try to repurpose my beloved QC35s if the gaming headset/accessory will be available as an option. By the way, I have just ordered a new set of ear cushions for my QC 35s, if the price of the mic is comparable I would mind ordering as soon as it become available.

Re: Gaming Accessories available for vanilla QC 35 II?

Bose should also think about the waste they produce, and the environmental impact. By making this accessory available, it allows those like me to keep my super QC35, and on your side to sell a complementary accessory and get more money while limiting waste.
You can see from browsing this forum that not working on making this accessory available separately, degrades your image and creates a negative opinion of your brand, which is definitely not what you are looking for, are you ?
I hope you will have positive news soon, because believe me as soon as this accessory is available it will sell like hot cakes.

 

Kind regards,

Yves

Re: Gaming Accessories available for vanilla QC 35 II?

Immediately after I leaned that a gaming version of the QC35 II existed, I spent 20 minutes online searching for a separately-sold boom mic. Then I came across the faq that said it wouldn't be sold a la carte  I'm very disappointed as I owned QC25, upgraded to the 35, now own the 35II.  I also own a soundtouch surround system and have 2 sets of pulse soundsport buds.  Bose, please take notice.

Re: Gaming Accessories available for vanilla QC 35 II?

I have a question on this. If the gaming boom mic is not going to be sold separately, what should we do if the cable snaps but the QC35 II portion works perfectly fine? What if we would like to purchase a spare boom microphone for our current QC35 II Gaming Headsets in case something like this happens?

Re: Gaming Accessories available for vanilla QC 35 II?

I recently purchased the QC 35 ii over the holidays. Is there really no way to get the gaming mic addition? I would hate to return these...

Re: Gaming Accessories available for vanilla QC 35 II?

I have 3 pairs of QC 35 II’s.  2 are connected to Xbox Series X and PS5, the 3rd is my travel pair.  I want the Boom mic module for the 2 connected to my consoles.  Bose is being like Disney and not having “Baby Yoda” merchandise ready for sale.  Bose, don’t be like Disney, take our money!

Re: Gaming Accessories available for vanilla QC 35 II?

Dear Bose, I own and love my Bose QC35 IIs. In fact, I have a few friends who also purchased the QC35 IIs based on my recommendation. Given the pandemic, we have all started to game and use discord. We would buy the boom mic+sound toggle kit instantly! Even at a significant markup! Please, please, please start selling it separately! It does not make any sense for us to buy the exact same headphones just for the mic. Thanks!

Re: Gaming Accessories available for vanilla QC 35 II?

Hey guys,

I would like to buy separately mic for BOSE QC II (I won't buy the whole set, because what would I do with my QC II then?).

 

Please consider selling them separately. I wouldn't like to buy any other third party mics that goes with QC (and you can find them easily on Amazon).
