A glimpse of the past, wish I had Bose QC35 II

If you are a regular reader who visits my blog, you must have seen that we went to Singapore last year. During our visit to Sentosa Island, I missed my train and my husband and my daughter went ahead to the next station. My passport, my phone and my all details were with him. I only knew my husband’s number which was registered with an Indian Telecom company and not the one which we took for Singapore trip. The next train was after 20 mins and I tried to take help from the local people out there but no one could help me and I had only one thing which was my headphone and guess what? It was not a Bose QC35 II.

Bose QC35 II Headphones

It was amongst those simple headphones which were connected to my phone via Bluetooth but it got disconnected as these headphones can connect up to a specified range only. Now I was aghast with this moment and felt how much I love my family. Then as a last resort, I went to the police and asked them to help. But communication was the biggest problem, the only thing which I remembered was the name of the hotel which I stayed in. Happens to be, in Singapore like other countries there can be two or more hotels with the same name.

We were staying in a hotel named as Park hotel and there is one more with the same name. So I convinced police to take me to the hotel and help me.I wish I had these Bose QC35 II headphones, I would have connected somehow with my husband, even when I was lost. But finally, I met my family and took a sigh of relief.

Why Future Ready with Bose?

At some point in our lives, we all would have ordered or asked or at least requested someone to change the song for us on a TV or grab the remote so that we could change the music. So at such times don’t we feel the need for someone to just understand our urgency, just listen to us and change music or control the volume? Future Ready with Bose is the solution for that age-old problem.

With the Google VPA (Virtual Private Assistant) enabled Bose QC35 II headphones, we can now enjoy talking to the Google Assistant and control all the features at the command of your voice. Well, as we all know that the benefits of Google’s VPA in the urban world are nearly limitless. Excited? Read on for more cool features.

Headphones to crave for

Have you been craving for those headphones that help you to manage your music while you workout or let you answer your calls when you are just chilling in your lounge chair? Don’t you hate it when you accidentally pull the headphone wire from your phone’s or laptop’s audio jack? Well, the Future Ready headphones from Bose are here and yes they are Wireless.

What to watch out for?

Technology is what makes it outstanding. Well, every product has its uniqueness but what makes this one to watch out for is the world-class noise cancellation technology that lets you detach from the noise and enjoy your music without any disturbance.

Assistance at its best

If you are a Google user this comes as a blessing as the Google Assistant allows to use the functions without you using your hands. Yes, you read that correct, it is hands-free. QC35 IIs have the Google Assistant built right into the headphones. That means you can play music, receive texts, manage your daily tasks and get answers – all with the command of your voice. All you have to do is just press and hold the Action button, and start a conversation with your Assistant.

What if you are a non-Google user?

No problem. These Future Ready Bose headphones aren’t biased towards Google users. They come with great functionality for the non-Google users as well. So if you are not a Google user just don’t worry.

You can use the Action button to adjust your level of noise cancellation between the three settings.

Buttons for Ease

Bose QC35 IIWhat is cool about the Future Ready Bose headphones is that it comes with a hassle-free operating technology wherein the large middle button is the multi-function button. It allows you to play/pause and other track controls for videos and music, answers and ends calls and can also initiate voice commands such as Siri (iPhone) or voice dial. The buttons on either side of the multi-function button are volume + and the volume – buttons. They allow you to easily adjust the level of volume in an intuitive up/down vertical orientation.

Robust Technology

So there are different kinds of people. Some might like to get comfy in their lounge chair and listen to music, some might like to listen while riding their bicycle. But then there are some who love to travel and they also love to carry their music along with them.

You need not worry as this QC35 IIs engineered by Bose are Future Ready in every sense. They come with impact-resistant materials, glass filled nylon and corrosion resistant stainless steel, and they are engineered to survive life on the go.

Comfort at its best

I have many people around me using the headphones that do not get spoilt easily, but are they comfortable? I guess Never. We are so habituated to compromise, aren’t we? But let’s step into the future and use these Future Ready headphones as they are extremely comfortable along with being well what they made for rough and tough use.

The QC35 headband isn’t just soft, it’s luxurious. Wrapped in Alcantara®—the soft covering material used in yachts and high-end automobiles—it provides a welcome comfort designed for all-day listening and the plush ear cushions are manufactured from a synthetic protein leather, so it won’t even feel like you’re wearing headphones.

Till when would it work?

When we have a product loaded with features we always have to sacrifice something and that is “The Battery Life”. With people wanting more peace, more music is a major need and which is why QC35 IIs from Bose comes with a 20-hour battery life.

But then what after that? When it finally runs down, a quick 15-minute charge gives you another 2.5 hours. So if that is not enough and for that rare time when you do get caught without battery, use the included cable to plug in and keep the music playing.

That’s an App

Well to use these key functions mentioned throughout this article, you have to download the Bose Connect App which is available on Google Play Store and on the Apple App store as well. It is a 26 MB application that gives you an easy access to everything. It allows you to share music, control noise cancellation, make personalize settings and so much more.

This is a sponsored post written for cars.com talking about car safety features and how to maintain cars for long use.  However the views expressed  are completely personal.

Why safety of cars?

Safety of Car turns to Safety of Yourself. It is always better to be safe then to be sorry. Everyday we read of mishaps on road that takes various lives. Rash driving and speeding may be the cause but at the same time failure of the vehicle might also be the reason. No matter how careful you drive or the amount of experience and skills you have, you are not safe unless your vehicle is in good condition and to keep it in good condition it should be maintained properly.

Why maintanance of the car is important ?

Maintenance of the vehicle plays an important role in your safety on the road. When you are having your own Car, it is your duty to maintain your car properly to ensure Safety of Car. Routine maintenance of your Car should be done regularly. Yes, it is true Routine Maintenance of Car may involve your valuable time and also money but I think, yours and your loved ones Life is more precious than anything else. Neglecting the condition of your vehicle, imagine heavy rain is pouring and you are driving on the highway and suddenly the vision gets unclear because of the false wiper blades or what if while driving any of your Car part fails because of negligence, may result in unpleasant and dangerous consequences. In such circumstances, you are endangering the lives of the people with you too. Prevention is always better than Cure, is what we all know.

Car is my second home.

While travelling, travelers consider their car as their second home. So it’s one’s duty to ensure Safety of Car even while you are out of your home. Knowing the percentage of crime happening in our country, theft and hijacking of the vehicles especially the cars have crossed all the records. If you go to the shop or to the office, or when you hit the gym, or in the circumstances where you find your Car to the only one present in the parking, you should always ensure the Safety of Car. 

1) First of all make sure always that your Car is locked properly and have no valuable belongings in it when you leave. 

2) . Even in slow-moving traffic you should always keep your valuable out of sight and safely in the boot or box or under the seat of the Car. 

3) . One should avoid going to the crime spot alone and at night or early morning.

4) . While driving you should follow all the traffic rules.

5) . One should always carry Car documents and insurance papers every time you take your Car out.

6) . Always follow speed limits, since people often disobey speed limit which in turn increases the chances of fatal accidents and affects the Safety of Car.
7) . One should not Drink and Drive.
8) . While driving a Car during traffic should try to maintain safe distance in the front.

It’s obvious one cannot mitigate the risks of being a victim but at least can minimize the chances of falling prey to the attackers by taking the precautions and following the above tips. You should consider the fitting of anti-theft device to ensure Safety of Car, through which your Car can be traced easily during any emergency. If you take proper care of your Car, your Car will last longer and work better and you can get a good resale value too. Additionally a proper maintained Vehicle is a Safer Vehicle.

One day traveling with an office colleague I kept my passport in her handbag because I was not carrying any bag. It was a long and tiring flight, so while leaving from airport to home, I forgot to ask her about my passport and she too forgot to give back to me.

My colleague was having another flight to her hometown after few hours, so I said her goodbye and left for home. The very next day while unpacking the luggage I realized I don’t have my passport with me, at that particular moment all the consequences which I will have to face, started flashing in front of my eyes. I sat down and started thinking with a cool mind, and I recognize that I had left my passport in my colleague’s handbag, without wasting a single minute I called her and asked. She replied positively and only after hearing yes from her I got relief. Even today when I think about that moment, I get goosebumps. I think if I would have kept my passport safely, this situation would never have arrived. So the safety of our passport is extremely important.

AS we all know Passport is our legal identity. It is the only document which shows your identity when you are outside your country. You might have several Xerox copy or might have some other document to prove your identity but losing your passport under any circumstances will surely spoil your entire vacation and you might also waste your precious time in searching or for applying a new one.

In my opinion, it is better to take precautions before and avoid such problems in future. That’s why passport holder is a perfect thing to keep your passport safe from been theft or from getting damaged, because if you will have a proper and fix a place for the passport it will surely be safe always.

One can choose passport holder of your own choice, the company also offers the system of personalization your passport holder with your own name with some extra amount. Its price tag is also affordable when it comes about luxury and quality.

The product comes with a one-year material and craftsmanship guarantee and is very durable. Black and white color of passport holder give the best look. I got an off-white color which I really liked it. As my name is clearly visible.  The only problem I found is that it is too small to fit a passport which has thick or many pages, it takes time to insert inside. But the other side you can see that, once you put inside it will never come out or fall outside while removing from your pockets.

In fact, I would suggest if you are regular traveler as a family then you must select in various colors and your name impregnated on it. This will avoid confusion when you travel on a big family tour.

There is no harm or side-effect of using Urby passport holder so one should try this once and should avoid the tensions of misplacement of passport in future. This is a sponsored post but my review is genuine and true.

I honestly like the idea of this personalized URBY PASSPORT HOLDER, which you can even gift to your friends who are going for taking education in foreign countries.
