Which should you buy? Sony wf-1000xm3 vs Powerbeats Pro WirelessFeb 27, 2020
hey guys EVP man here and if you are considering the Sony 1000x m3s and also the power beats Pro Wireless you are going to want to watch this video because today we are going to do a comparison review to help you with your buying decision. directly for the past few weeks we have been reviewing and comparing the Sony WF 1000x m3 to the series of two
wirelessearphones on the market and Sony has crushed every one of them today we are going to do the comparison with power beats Pro Wireless and we are going to see how well they stack up against these more comfortable earbuds that have fantastic battery life, but do they stack up for audio? notified when new videos are available so first we're going to look at battery life and we're going to look at battery life in two different settings because they have a unique feature that's not available on power beats first these from Sony are they measure in two different ones now first we'll focus on the men now the first thing we're going to talk about is battery life now the Sony's take a look at battery life with two different settings look at the active noise-cancellation on and cancel active noise canceling off now make sure you understand this power beats don't have active noise canceling so you'll want to consider the number without the active noise canceling so let's talk about battery life first so with Those two Sony setups, the first one basically gets you six hours of battery life if you use it with Active Noise Cancellation turned on and frankly Before, the power beats when it comes down to it, however when you turn off the active noise cancellation and use them just like the power beats when you get closer, you'll get eight hours of battery life if you use them with active cancellation of noise off so how do they compare to the power beats w Listen to the power of the beats here they basically have nine to ten hours of battery life they have really really good battery life so they are at least an hour or almost two hours better in battery life than the Sony's now that we take a look at charging both. these have fast charging and if we take a look at the
sonyones here for a second in ten minutes you'll get 1.5 hours of battery life
whichmeans if you put them dead in 10 minutes you can get an hour and a half when look at the power beats 5 minutes will give you 1.5 hours so from a battery life and primitive performance perspective the power beats really have the advantage and as we look at the cases now let's take a look at the cases with the in case you know roughly about 15 more hours of use so you're rounding up around 24 to 25 hours of use now that Sony has or coming back a little more so Sony will get 24 to 32 hours so when to think about case independent The Sony's have inferior battery life, but only by a bit and the power definitely beats them.
However, when you consider the case, the case's kind of performance is on Sony's side, it beats it and gives you almost 32 hours of battery life and that's really amazing because you look at the case, look at how great these cases are, you would expect the power beats to have more juice and give you more battery life now another thing about these two headphones is they support standalone use and this really changes the game for so much so with the
sonyyou can use the sony independently Independent. I can literally take one, put it in my right ear and just wear it for six to eight hours and when it's depleted I could just pick it up and put it back in the case. take the other one out and put it in my ear, well what about the beats?
All beats do the same. The beats, you can open them. and then then once it's fully discharged put it back in its case to charge and then use the other one for another 9-10 hours so the good thing about both is that they both support standalone use
whichwill give you double . battery life depends on how you use them now taking a look at the cases the cases are really different too so when we look at the beats first it's a huge case probably one of the big cases out of all the earphones that we've seen on the channel it doesn't support true
wirelesscharging and also doesn't have a standard usb c charging port it uses a proprietary apple charger now the case itself when we open it up the earbuds magnetically guide the size when i put it in i put it in and i let it go they slide into place and they won't come out if i close the door it won't come out either will you notice it has a single led that indicates color and when you open it there is no led that indicates a charge on the ea rbuds at all now that we take a look at the sony of sony it's a little bit more refined the case is smaller and it's USBC so it's standards based and it also supports NFC so if we open it up you'll notice that There's a MSc in here so you can use this to pair with another phone that's NFC capable the actual earbuds are also magnetically locked so when I put it in here it locks in place and if I were to flip them over they're not going to come out if I close the door and turn it around it won't open either, but if you were to ask me which one is easier to carry in your pocket, which one is easier to carry in your jean pocket, or even if you're I'm going to put it in a briefcase.
I have to give it to the Sonys. The Sony ones are more compact, easier to use and have great battery life with the case on so the next thing we'll talk about is the IP rating so I see a lot of people using their headphones not just for traveling but for doing exercise so the good thing is when you think of th you will be able to exercise without any problem. is where against the door disappointing with sony sony has no IP X rating at all so it could be kind of use at your own risk so in this case the power beats have the sony's now Let's talk about Bluetooth connectivity. now from a bluetooth perspective both are bluetooth 5.0 and both have had no problems syncing with hulu with netflix with youtube streaming videos no problem regardless of what device i've been using so no concerns from a range perspective they've done very well too, so walking around the house walking and in highly-enabled bluetooth 5.0 areas, like in an airport or downtown.
I have not had a problem with them in the gym, yes I have not had a problem with them. i had some confusion or something depending on where i have my phone with me or if i'm at least 30 feet away no problems with bluetooth signal now the good thing about these two is that they both so when we think about the Sony, they don't have a slave and master model which means most headphones are true wireless when you put one in your ear the right one is the master and then when you take the left one and put it in your ear the left is a slave so the bluetooth signal goes from here to here and that's how you use it but they both maintain a bluetooth connection that is independent of your phone and you actually hear it as soon as you put it in your ear you hear a female voice saying bluetooth connected and then when you put the second one in and connect via bluetooth that means you're going to get better audio quality on these because they have that separate connection in the bluetooth area now it will be the most Ism with the power beats so we take a look at the power beats if you were to put the power beats in your ear you put one in this it's going to connect you're going to hear a sound you don't have a correct female voice and you don't get anything to tell you what the battery level is all you get dududu and you're basically connected but each of these also maintain the same type of connectivity you don't have a slave on a master here so I would say they are equally paired it's about the two of them, each of them can report or trigger independently and they can be used independently from a bluetooth perspective. but the isolation now one of the things I find is that they both do a decent job of isolating the noise around you with the tip of the ear so the tip of the ear says let's take a look at these you notice that the ear tips are really nice they're bigger there's silicone and they're going I'm going to do a really good job of sealing out noise and music from leaking out as I compare it to these if I take out the Sony's and we'll do a side by side comparison hand the sonys also do a really good job of isolating them so let's look at them both with the naked eye so you can see it now the difference is the sonys go a little deeper into your ear so you can see how it goes in a little bit more and the Sony ones also have active noise. -cancellation so while they both support passive noise cancelling, the Sony ones with the active noise canceling will give you a superior audio experience now that we put them side by side here so you can see the headphones you can See that the footprint of the beats is much larger, but the beats have a more secure fit, so since we're talking when they're in your ear, let's go ahead and put them on so you can see them and then we'll move on. pretty much like audio B so I'm going to go ahead and put this in pull this one out and put yours in as well so take a look at this for a second so the thumping beats give you the best fit for sure no they will fall, you could do cartwheels and these will not fall, you can do handstand they will not fall and that is because this is going around here right now, the only thing about this and all of this is going to depend on your ears for some people and this is what I've heard from friends who wear these and stretch it out like super long periods of time I get some pressure they're not the ones when you compare them to these they're not as comfortable as the Sony's and just the way they position themselves with this, the one thing also about this from an auditing perspective is that this has the ability to increase and decrease the volume on the individual earphones.
You have to use the app with the Sony ones, but this is how they look from a profile. They won't fall off. You can shake them. your head because of how the loop is and like I said you could literally stand on your head and these aren't going to come out at all so we're going to put them back in and then we'll take the Sony out so you can see what the Sony looks like. like close that will open this case put them on our ears now this you get a nice little voice so this voice will tell you the real fact that the battery level is on and bluetooth is on so no it's just an audible beep but it's actually giving you more information now as i'm looking at these these I have one of the working pieces that come with the Sony headphones that's kind of like squishy it's not a conforming foam but it's almost like the conforming foam will figure out what this looks like from the left and what it looks like from the right and if I shake they're not going to come out but if I were to do somersaults or shoot it would stand on my hands or if I were to try and do a backflip with these these will come off and that's because it doesn't have the ear loops so there are no ties around it but for standard running to work out doing jumping jacks they haven't fallen out of my ear and I find that because they aren't being pushed around like these i don't really have a problem with these for a long time or for long flights now again activation or passive noise canceling and also active noise canceling are present because of how they work modes just tap so they're pretty nice this is what they look like right now as we look at the quality of the music and these are the songs I use that I have on my audio test list and I have them here because what I like these and the list keeps getting longer and longer as I try them because they both have a combination of starting with music first or vocals first and introducing instruments as you go through the song and what I'll say. is the power the beats do a very good job when it comes to treble mids and bass they are all present you get bass and because of the isolation they are better than headphones now the sonys have treble mids and bass too but what i will have to say is the soundstage while they both have a decent soundstage the sony ones have a wider soundstage literally when i use them i feel like i am listening to music and that is very nice . treble, mid and bass there and you get bass and the bass is powerful but when you put the Sony ones on it's on a totally different level you get almost like you're in a studio you're listening the listening experience is very different. so the bass and treble are there, but the bass is much stronger.
The other thing I've noticed with power beats is that sometimes it doesn't sound as clear, especially when you start to introduce the bass, so you know these are the songs I have here and I would encourage you to listen.Some of these so you can see what I'm talking about, especially if you have Spotify or another app and you'll see that one of my favorite bass songs I use to try out is midnight blues just because. of how the vocals start some of the hoarseness that starts up front and then when the bass kicks in I look to hear how clear things are and what I find is sometimes things aren't so clear with the beats, the beats don't they stay as clear as i would like them to be so audio wise i'll take you to sony's clear highs and mids crisp crisp and also thumping thumping bass that's really rattling and not overwhelming where they stand up for everything. otherwise if you're looking for the best audio sony has it again now the next thing we're going to talk about is additional capabilities so first of all power beats don't have so power beats don't have any from here through the technology so you can't hear the world around you the power beats are also very limited when it comes to the app sony has a much better app that also has not only here or ambient noise but also it has active noise cancellation so you will get more features if you were to go with the sony now another feature i wanted to mention is the auto pause feature now they both support auto pause so if you take it out of your earring you put it here listening to music se will pause they also support stereo calls so if you're wearing the headphones in your ears you're both going to hear stereo sound but they're both also compatible where you can use a headset icular standalone so i can actually have an ear bud and have a phone call with sony and i can do the exact same thing with the power beats so i can use them independently almost like a headphone and i can turn the headphones on and off as i use all the power on that specific piece of equipment but they are both equally matched in this area ok now let's make a qualified call Quality test using Power Beats Pro Wireless Now we are in a noisy environment and you can see our Dussel has an average of 40 decibels up to 73 maximum.
This is what call quality would sound like if you had a phone call with someone using power beats wireless this is what calls would sound like this is a test one two three this is a test what do you think about the call in the comment area a continuation? run a call quality test using the three 1000's X 7's from Sony and set my environment loud you can see the decibel reading is the same average 48 up to 73 this is what the talk quad would sound like when making a phone call Sony 1000x inputs this is a test in two three this is your homework let me know what you think of the rip off quality so I can conclude my comparison review between the Sony WF 1000 XM 3s and the power beats pro Wireless which one would you choose as your true wireless earphones i have to say that So ny are still my pick when it comes to true wireless earphones because of the audio quality, active noise cancellation, great battery life and it also has a more compact case.
