Hey Guys,

I'm currently torn between the Google Pixel 3a and the OnePlus 7

The 3a only has a 3000 mAh battery but a headphone jack and the OnePlus 7 has 3700mAh but no Headphone jack. I'm a heavy music listener and 70% of me using my phone is listening to music. 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.
