That’s interesting to compare two famous trademarks of the U.S. and Japan: Bose 700 vs Sony 1000xm3. Both represent closed over ear headphones with wired and wireless options.
The headphones Sony 1000xm3 are specified with the impedance of 16 Ohm, 4Hz-40KHz frequency response, and 104 dB of sensitivity. Unfortunately, the Bose’s features are not specified. Sony model wins in aptX and aptX HD support, which is absent in Bose. The same is with the battery life, Sony’s works 38 hours vs 28 of Bose’s. However, Bose has a speed charge option unlike Sony.
The sound of Bose is balanced at all frequencies, very smooth and open. But if you prefer heavy bass you may feel a lack of it.
Sony showed a high class of bass, strong and deep. But the trebles seem to me dark, maybe because of the overwhelming bass. In general it sounds good for most listeners.
The ANC function is really incredible in both the headphones, it just kills all the noises if you need, and the level may be adjusted.
Bose 700 are lighter than Sony, 255 vs 380 g. However they are not foldable like Sony. The headband is adjustable in both. They have built-in microphones only. Bose control is represented with buttons, touch, voice, and app. Sony proposes in-line, touch, voice, and app control. The cups are large, well-padded and not sweaty. Really comfortable headphones for long listening. Both come with a hard carry case that is great to keep and carry with safely.
The Sony WH1000XM3 is better headphones in this comparison. Check Sony WH1000XM3 price
