Jabra Elite 65t vs Sony WF-1000XM4 - Where are the differences?
Where are the differences?
The Jabra Elite 65t true wireless headphones differ a few points from the Sony WF-1000XM4. Let's go into the differences in detail.
What about the battery life?
A crucial point for headphones without cables is always the battery life. Here, many headphones differ and the capacity grows from year to year. The battery life of the Sony WF-1000XM4 is longer here with 6,0 hours. With a lower battery life of up to 5,0 hours, the Jabra Elite 65t scores worse at this point.
An additional battery in the case has become popular for true wireless headphones. Thus, the headphones can be conveniently charged on the go and have a longer battery life overall. The Sony WF-1000XM4* is in front here. The headphones offer a battery life of up to 24,0 hours with a case. The battery life of the Jabra Elite 65t is up to 15,0 hours.
How to charge the headphones?
The charging ports of the headphones differ. The Jabra Elite 65t is charged via MicroUSB. The Sony WF-1000XM4 has a USB-C connector.
The charging time of the devices:
- Jabra Elite 65t*: 15,0 minutes charge time for 1,0 hours battery life
- Sony WF-1000XM4*: 5,0 minutes charge time for 1,0 hours battery life
Many headphones offer some form of noise cancellation. However, it is not true Active Noise Cancelling (ANC for short) in all of them. In this comparison only the Sony WF-1000XM4 offers ANC.
Let's talk about the microphones, which also have an impact on voice quality and noise suppression. Most headphones no longer rely on just one microphone, but on several. The Jabra Elite 65t* offers more here with 4 pieces per side, than the Sony WF-1000XM4 with 2 microphones per earbud.
Of course, both TWS headphones work over Bluetooth. However, the version is different. With Bluetooth in the 5.2 version, the Sony WF-1000XM4 offers a newer and higher standard. The Jabra Elite 65t has Bluetooth installed in the 5.0 version. Newer Bluetooth versions offer more stability in the connection and also a better range.
Can the ear studs be used separately?
The right earpiece can also be used independently of the left earpiece in almost every true wireless headphone. This is also the case with both devices from this comparison. Rarely, the left headphone can be used separately, because they work in dependency of the right ear plug. Mostly the right headphone is the so called master. Only with the Sony WF-1000XM4 you get this handy function.
Are there interchangeable attachments?
For better wearing comfort, both headphones from the comparison offer changeable attachments. The number of pieces is thereby also identical with 3.
Are the headphones waterproof?
Both headphones from the comparison have IP certification. The Jabra Elite 65t is certified with IP55. With the Sony WF-1000XM4 you get an IPX4 certification. However, an IP certification does not directly mean waterproof. Depending on the certification, the headphones are only water- or sweat-resistant. However, a higher number in the certification is generally better. With Bluetooth headphones, there is also the problem that Bluetooth is disturbed by water. Thus, the use when swimming is only possible with special headphones.
