Will QC25 Apple work well with Android phone? Does it include necessary plugs/cables?

I'm looking for a gift for someone who has an ipad mini and a Samsung Note 8.  Will QC25 Apple work on the Samsung?  Does it use Klunky adapters?  Is it fully functional?  If it works just fine, why does Bose feel compelled to call it QC25 Apple and not mention Android in the webpage?  And QC25 Android is discontinued? Most confusing!

Do QC25 headphones work with other smartphones?

Yes. These headphones are compatible with most Android™, Windows® and BlackBerry® smartphones. Many features of the inline microphone/remote will work with today's most popular phones. You can also use QC25 headphones with mobile and home audio devices that have a standard 3.5 mm jack.

Re: qc 25 apple vs samsung

Hey JW,

 

Thank you for your interest in the QC25. To clarify those headsets are indeed wired and both are designed differently for Apple and Samsung devices. The difference would be in the microphone and button functionality. We recommend the Samsung version for the phone you have mentioned and it will also function as regular headphones for the iPad 2.

 

The QC35 is the wireless version which uses Bluetooth to pair with the device.

 

Hope that clears up any confusion
