Only the second appliance has NFC support. When it comes to battery life, this feature is the same — 20 hours.

Sound

Bose QuietComfort 35 II has balanced, but soft sound quality. The device does a great job of drowning out everything from the rumble of a bus, cars driving by and even voices. These headphones impressively manage to dig up details you might not otherwise hear.

The headphones Bose 700 can work well with most music genres, you will get easy listening and open sound. They deliver a wide soundstage, with balanced highs, mids, and lows.
