Hey there. I've owned the Galaxy Bud Pros and they did not own up to the hype about what they were and how they were supposed to work and sound. Returned them and purchased the Jabra elite 85t's. And after a month of contacting Jabra tech support without any help they are even worse than the Galaxy pros. I'm hoping that these new Sony earbuds hold up to their name. Does anybody know if these earbuds we'll have multi-point connection? I need something that will connect to two different devices. I have an ipod touch for music and a galaxy 21 plus for phone. If anyone has any info oh, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

And I owned a Buds Pro (Lost since 2 days, they finally added the double tap like on Buds+) and Buds+ that are my backup. Well, not so much backup now haha.

imo these will only sell if sound quality is great and comfort, usability are close to airpods.

- galaxy buds already have really good sound quality (much better than airpods but also better than sony).

- sony should also make LDAC available on windows, mac, and provide problem-free multi point transitions like Apple does on airpod+mac. Bonus points if they find magic to make LDAAC even higher quality ;-)

- sony needs to provide more eartips (including with wings) or let manufacturers create more of them, or use the same type of design as apple so that they at least stay in your ear

- fix noise cancelling issues, make it closer to their bigger bt headphones

I used the MX3 and tried hard to like them but swapped to airpod pros because they're just more convenient and comfortable. then swapped to expensive IEMs that have better sound quality than everything else anyway...

I use a starfield IEM with a Fiio BT neck style bt adapter right now, this supports SBC, AAC, AptX, AptX LL, AptX HD, LDAAC and a few other formats.


While LDAC and AptX are already somewhat low latency compared to SBC, AptX LL is pretty close to wired latency (less than 25% worse IIRC)

I'm hoping the microphone improves!

In a market filled with all those generic, copycat designs sony always manages to put out something unique and refreshing.

Love Sony. They are the best ear buds compared to.. Korean Samsung..or Chines brand.

They should apply the color options on the h.ear on this one too, or at least make an h.ear tws earbuds :3

I like grey color. The design is so special

I have a over ear wireless a on ear wired a in ear wired headphones and a wired earbuds. Will buy a wireless earbuds and a noice canceling over ear headphones. Having every type of headphones is a great idea. It will suit your needs.

I'd personally wait for bluetooth LE Audio and lc3plus before i buy earbuds specially ones that expensive. it looks nice however. I just can't stand the latency in bluetooth devices, I play games so it's unusable for that purpose.
