Nowadays the popularity of wireless headphones is constantly rising. Therefore, I decided to compare two devices Jabra Elite 85h vs Sony WH1000XM3 both of which can be used without an audio cable. They are closed-back and over-ear.
Sony WH1000XM3 has 16 Ohm of impedance and 104 dB of sensitivity. There is a significant difference between their frequency responses. Sony WH1000XM3 works in a range of 4 Hz - 40 kHz which is much wider than the frequency response of Jabra Elite 85h — 10 Hz - 20 kHz.
With the device made by Sony you can use Siri and Google Assistant and with Jabra Elite 85h Amazon Alexa is available too. Both of them have app control and Bluetooth. Additionally, Sony WH1000XM3 supports aptX and NFC. The battery of the device produced by Sony lasts 30 hours, while the battery life of Jabra Elite 85h is 36 hours. Without noise-canceling appliances can work 38 and 41 hours respectively. Charging of Sony WH1000XM3 takes 3 hours and these headphones have a free-listening battery mode. With regard to Jabra Elite 85h, they have a speed charge function.
The devices of both brands have noise-canceling and, whatever headphones you buy, it is possible to adjust its level. The 1000XM3s are really fun to listen to, with some amount of thumping bass and nice sparkling clarity in the mid- and high range.
If you want to have an incredibly accurate audio that matches the depth and spatial awareness, you will definitely enjoy Jabra Elite 85h.
Jabra Elite 85h is a better option for traveling since it has water resistance. For its control, you have to use built-in buttons, while the other device also has a touch and in-line control. The considered headphones come with a detachable wire which is 120 cm long in the case with Jabra Elite 85h. They also have a built-in microphone that might be convenient for making phone calls.
