Sony WH-1000xM4 vs. Bose 700: Which is best?

Shhh! Can you hear that? Probably not since this is a battle between wireless noise cancelling headphone heavyweights. In one corner, you have the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, the gold standard when it comes to blocking out the outside world and creating a silenced nirvana. Not only do the 700s deliver world-class ANC, but you also get accurate, balanced audio, a modern, yet elegant design and some of the best call quality in the business.

But before you go and hand Bose the victory, consider the Sony WH-1000xM4 headphones. The latest update to Sony’s flagship ANC headphones addresses its predecessor’s biggest complaint –– the call quality. With that out of its way, you have what’s probably the smartest headphone on the market. By way of its app, the xM4 delivers scores of audio customization including 360-degree audio and a rather deep equalizer. And Sony’s no slouch in the ANC category, either, creating a noise-free bubble to rival Bose. Plus, you’ve got some seriously powerful audio that’s warm and dynamic.
