What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
  • I like the compact carrying case and how the headphones fold-up in it. Nice.
  • Compact, solidly built, has a built-in divider for the cords, has both a handle strap and an outer mesh slip pocket.
  • They are comfortable and fold up very compact into the case that they come with.
  • They're also very compact and light compared to other competitors noise cancelling headphones I've tried.
  • They are also very light weight. Ear cups are nice and soft. Noise canceling is fantastic just walking around a busy city.
Bose 700 Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
  • The included carrying case is perfectly cute, compact and functional. The touch controls are great after some getting used to.
  • There is a soft touch plastic on the device. It’s a nice feel and I have to believe they went this way to reduce weight.
  • The weight and comfort level is amazing and I couldn't ask for anything more with the sound.
  • These are super comfortable - the lightweight coupled with the great quality ear cups makes for superior comfort.
  • The form factor is a lot larger and less compact than prior models, making it an awkward travel companion.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
  • The app was very cool with tons of customization possible. NFC pairing is very quick and painless pairing.
  • Nice quality sound, excellent connection, and even the microphones had a pretty good quality for phone calls.
  • The bass is pronounced but not overbearing and the mids and highs are crisp and clear.
  • The headphones sound great. Noise cancelling is superb. They are comfy. I use them as a phone headset a lot.
  • The function touch pad is sensitive and easy to unintentionally do something like skip the track when adjusting the headset on your ears. It's annoying when it happens.
Bose 700 Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
  • Sounds great, Bluetooth connects very quickly talking to someone sounds really good! Very light weight.
  • The NCH 700 can connect to up to 2 devices at once. You can set your voice assistant between Siri, Google Assistant or Alexa.
  • The range is what I expect. I can listen to music in my bedroom from the computer downstairs.
  • Bose App - Absolutely awful. Disconnects constantly or says its not connected when it is.
  • Awful connection with my computer, still bad mic pickup which dont lets you listen and talk at the same time.

What customers say about "Power"
Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
  • These headphones have excellent battery life, amazing noise-canceling and I'd highly recommend them, if my pair hadn't broken.
  • The battery life on these is also amazing! And USB-C definitely takes that to the next level with the quick charge feature.
  • These are my first set of noise cancelling headphones and I'm very impressed. The battery life is phenomenal. The noise cancelling is incredible.
  • Battery life is as advertised. Long lasting and easy to recharge. Usb C is a great choice when trying to plug in in the dark.
  • Battery life isn't anywhere near the 30 hours advertised. Changing the volume is hard, a lot of the time you skip tracks instead of adjusting volume.
Bose 700 Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphones
  • I’m getting around 4 days of use (that’s around 4 hours a day). Battery life is respectable.
  • The charging on these headphones are really quick. I did a 15-minute charge and that gave me an extra 2 hours of battery life.
  • Battery life is excellent. The Bose app is a bit kludgy and the documentation (manual) could be better.
  • To make a long story short, the battery life is great, the sound is great, they are light and fit well, and they can pair to more than one thing at a time.
  • The battery life sucks! After a full charge, it would say 18 hours of usage available. Within 2-3 hours of continuous use, it would say 10 hours of usage available.
