I am wondering how much more my batter will be drained with Bluetooth headphones in comparison to classic headphones and if the 700mAh difference is negated by the fact that I have to use Bluetooth headphones.
Never used any bluetooth heaphone before, but recently I've been using a wearable device that connect to my device all the time. For me the battery drain is negliblible and almost not noticeable. I guess this is the case too with audio headphone because bluetooth is very power efficient this time around. As for wired headphone, I guess it depends on your wired headphone impedance. The higher the impedance, the more battery it sips. So my conclusion, no noticeable difference between bluetooth vs wired.
