Read about Sound. Specially the last para about the bass.
Check this review as well.
There is comparison of XM2 and XM3 and they clearly state that XM3 is superior to XM2 in every way.

As it is pretty obvious the you got a defective piece(if you purchased it) or have come across a defective piece(if you had your hands on for a short time). I have heard lot many XM3s as many of of my friends have it and use for traveling purpose. Not even a single one of that sounds as bad what you are referring to. I agree that it is not Z7 M2 level but saying that it is worse than XM2 is not correct as I compared both and XM3 is far more detailed and upfront in comparison to XM2.

You might be on a scale "I love it!" / "I hate it!", I prefer more steps in my own "value metrics" and no ties to a brand ofc.
That's why I own so many different headphones from different manufacturers, I care for a products in its "buble" in its price range, when I see DSEE I do my own research and take it in a perspective - aka when I see DSEE a pure bass boost and some other meaningles trickery that "enhances dynamic range" and then WH-1000XM3 with its bass boost and I combine it to an -> compressed streaming services ("mastered for lossy format") + DSEE bass boost + WH 1000XM3 bass boost ... I get really disgusting result, same result I get with my WH II and WF III.
Fearghast, 30 Jul 2020That is 100% true IMHO.That is true. Spending high on headphones also need a decent expenditure on equipment to drive them.
[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.

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?

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

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.
