Bose might have accidentally leaked upcoming/unreleased headphones via email newsletter

It looks like Bose’s team in charge of sending out its email newsletter might have let a secret slip. Some keen-eyed recipients of the company’s email newsletter noticed something odd about the featured image, which you can see above. It looks like the company’s noise-cancelling QC35 headphones but upon deeper inspection it features a button that isn’t there on said headset. Underneath the left earcup there is a pill-shaped button. The image’s filename is even more telling: email_QC35upgrade_img3.png. People are starting to speculate that this could be a new iteration of the QC35. It might be due an upgrade as the original one came out in June last year.

Of course, we can’t say if this will be a new product coming out but as The Verge speculates, perhaps the button serves as a way to turn off noise cancellation temporarily. A feature which can be done on by the Sony MDR-1000X, which is considered one of the QC35’s main competitors. A recent firmware update for the aforementioned headphones lets you customize the level of noise cancellation on the QC35 (from off to low to high). However, this can only be changed via Bose’s smartphone app. Having a button to toggle this feature would certainly be helpful.
