If we compare with sturdiness Bose 700 is always with Alexa voice assistant and more sturdier and comfier headphones than the Sony WH-1000WHXM3.

If we compare price-wise with Bose 700 Sony WH-1000 XM3 is the attractive piece because Bose is trading at $400, the $100 difference is major to enhance the sale and the quality features of both do not seem so differentiable.
