Hope they have better call quality microphone and bluetooth 5.1

thisguy, 01 Aug 2020There better be a WF refresh, my XM3s are getting a little ... moreSilicons on my WFs are fine, but I probably will have to RMAA it soon due to failing electronics - I get drop out from time to time and it feels like the interval is getting shorter.
It might have to be related to zero water and dust resistance - I am not treating them gently.

PS: None of the tips are 100% for me as well, but you can always buy better Comply tip to fix it ;)

Fearghast, 31 Jul 2020What about WF series? :DThere better be a WF refresh, my XM3s are getting a little clunky. Also has anyone else noticed that the silicone ear plugs fall out over time or is that just me, none of them give me a good fit

I use LDAC when ever I can, but it can never replace the raw quality and reliability of cable.

kevinmcmurtrie, 01 Aug 2020How can you possibly recover quality from the lossy-as-hell... moreLDAC is the most advanced Bluetooth codec. All Sony 1000XM headphones support it. It sounds great and almost indistinguishable from a wired connection.

How can you possibly recover quality from the lossy-as-hell Bluetooth compression, dropped packets from WiFi interference, reconstruction of the audio signal with a class D amp tuned for micropower consumption, and the race to the bottom in consumer electronics? With a powerful and technical looking name like WH-1000MX4. F-yeah!

I hope they update their amplifiers too, my STR-DN1080 is quite outdated now. Just thinking about buying a Denon AVR-4700H... Unless they release a "1090" for a bit cheaper, with similar specs... Oh, with a room EQ feature that would actually do good, unlike what the 1080 has.

I can't wait, after bassy, low quality plastic, non working touch interface in winter, unusable microphones XM3 - XM4 supposedly fixes all of the issues.
Can't wait to hear it, it might even be part of the upcoming Xperia 5 II bundle.

Come on . Give them a normal name.
