[deleted post]They do not sell through any retail chain.
So to check them out I will have to visit their office which is in a different state.
I guess that will not be happening any time soon. 2021 I may check it out.
Big question will it be as decent as STAX. Lets see.
Fearghast, 29 Jul 2020Well, he might not comment on a phone, but as a photographer ;) It's nothing new for Son... moreWhy your mind so negative? Even it is the best on phone you still can nitpicking like an expert, but you are totally not.
Fearghast, 28 Jul 2020Why? Do you see Xperia 5 II anywhere?
BTW iPhone is Sony equivalent for you? Even I am not so... morethen keep your mouth shut and waiting patiently for xperia 5II. why bother on xperia 1 II page? people reading this page want to know about xperia 1II not xperia 5.
didn't you say ios perform better than android? and also you like compact phone. so what's wrong with iphone? did you know any android phones that have compact form factor?
Fearghast, 28 Jul 2020TBH I find it quite sad that even Mediatek performs noticable better than Exynos. Not to ment... morelike i said, you should try samsung with their lovely exynos first before you trashing sony phones, same price also, imagine that,you have to pay the exact same msrp and yet getting exynos. i haven't try SD samsung but i'm guessing it should perform alright. i rather pay 1200usd to get xperia 1 II than paying whatever the most expensive s20 cost and still getting exynos

Every Sony produ... morepeople that care for sound quality not listening music through their smartphones, that's the absolute truth and they won't spend 300-500usd on headphone, most of them bought high end iem/ciem
Vineet Reddy, 29 Jul 2020Seriously go back and check what I said twice.
You are not getting simple point that Bass g... moreI won't check XM3, that is seriously a lost cause - huge bass boost, muddy highs and probably worst mics to take a call with ... no, no thank you. I do not care for XM3 even with a huge discount, I care for XM4, that should fix a ton of XM3 issues (not to mention touch issues in winter ... I didn't mention that before, did I?).
Even when I had preorder on Xperia 1 II, I already had a buyer for XM3. Many people like Beats, you might like what XM3 is, I prefer quality ... I can wait.

You are not getting simple point that Bass got Punchier while improving on the detail. The Mid-range got bit more flat and forward with increased detail. High end Treble got smooth roll-off without having sudden dips.
You know when you say Bass Boost does not make for better sound I think you should read my first comment. I clearly stated that XM3 got its Bass a not up without loosing detail(and in fact improving it) in the process like what Beats does. You are not getting the point that the overall detail and accuracy of sound got up a notch. Hell I don't even care for Bass boost if it looses detail in the process of doing so.
If you still think that it only got Bass Boost while it lost the detail. Then I can bet on it that what you came across was a defective product. This being tough time, after the pandemic settles visit SONY store and check the XM3. If you previously did check it in local SONY store then visit and different one or any electronic or gadget or audio or headphone store nearby.

Not to mention, good devices do not overcharge, they are a... moreDon't know what good device is for you but both Apple and SAMSUNG devices do over-charge beyond 100%. Both the brands released articles about how to be careful while charging and not overcharge the phones for over a long period of time as that will decrease the longevity of the battery. This is where SONY differs.
All phones let it be Apple, SAMSUNG, One+, Redmi or any other Major brand use Quick charge and reach 100% charge in 1-1.5hrs or even less and if left plugged in it will keep pushing power through the battery lowering its life. Like if you plug in the phone and are sleeping or doing daily routine and leave the phone plugged in for long periods of time on regular basis. What SONY XPERIA phones does and have been doing for years now is that it will charge up to 80-85% in quick charge mode mode and then it will simply limit the power input so that it takes long to charge that last 15-20% and depending on how long you regularly leave it plugged in, it will adapt to it and will slowly charge it to 100% over time. This negates the possibility of phone being over-charged for very long period of time and increase the battery longevity tremendously.
Senseurheart Kimochi, 29 Jul 2020Your phone must not have this feature that's why you have to saying no lol.Well, he might not comment on a phone, but as a photographer ;)
It's nothing new for Sony cameras, it's new only for phones.
IMHO eye autofocus is the best feature Sony solution offers compared to competetion - when it works ofc. ... but that was fixed/mostly fixed in recent FW update, if I am not mistaken.

Not to mention, good devices do not overcharge, they are able to run out of wall adapter when the battery is 100%.
TBH when you look at what ROG 3 is doing right now, any Sony attempt seems downright hilarious.

Every Sony product I bought is original, official distribution and no, bass boost does not make for better sound. It's to same issues Sennheiser Momentum is affected in 2. gen TWS / 3. momentum over ears.
Trash mob like, people that care for SQ .. not so much.
Sepfian, 29 Jul 2020Dont charge to 100%, not good for your own battery. Go to at least 80% And 20% minimal. You can unplug at 98% or 99% or even at 100% but you need not worry. Because the charging will adapt to your routine and will charge accordingly. For example if you unplug it in 2Hrs it will take 2hrs to get to 100% if you leave it plugged for 6hrs it will take 6hrs to get to 100%. Unlike other brands which rush to get to 100% SONY goes the other way. It will take longer to charge last 15-20% and adapt to how long you keep it plugged in and charge accordingly. Doing that it increases battery longevity tremendously.
Vineet Reddy, 29 Jul 2020At 100% charged it will get you through full day of work no problem.Dont charge to 100%, not good for your own battery.
Go to at least 80%
And 20% minimal.
No one is talking about the battery!
I want to know how it performs, because this is the most common problem with Sony mobile phones.
Fearghast, 29 Jul 2020I feel like you have no clue of what equipment I have here, the Sony ones were brought up just... moreI don't know where you live. But at this point I have a big doubt that you are not getting original SONY products or getting defective or refurbished stuff for lower price. Once or twice its fine but being this off surprises me. You can check online reviews or go to local store and give a try to display unit and possibly there can be issue with one you checked. But when it comes to pure audio quality WH-1000XM3 is superior to XM2 in every sense and I am not talking bout ANC. It is more detailed more forward(which you are referring to as bass boost). You have to realize that it is not only the Bass that is getting boosted but the mids are also forward and so are highs. The point is that the volume output is higher making it more boomy. And no I don't like Beats.

And yes, bass boost = bad to frequency response, and no, more bass != better -> seriously usings Beats culture here?
XM3 are using same drives, the only difference is ANC and tuning ... and those pesky mics.
Fearghast, 29 Jul 2020I like how you missed the mark only by a Mars length and used typical "avoidence" li... moreIf you meant WH-1000XM3 to XM2 then yes, Bass is bought up a notch and not only bass but entire frequency range is upped a notch and has more detail in it. I don't see how that is bad. That is what a better headphone sounds like. It is not like it crushed Mid range and Treble and only increased Bass like Beats. It pushed the entire frequency range up a notch improving the detail and power of the output.
I am worried that what you have been expecting from audio quality of headphones till now is not what you should have been expecting.
