    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Customisation would be awesome, if only so I can use the single tap for something other than bloody assistants.

    Plex has a volume boost in its app. You might also want to try Poweramp which has a "preamp" setting.

    Because different apps play at different volumes. Some have a preamp setting that allows you to increase the overall volume.

    What source are you using? My Senns played through Plex is painfully loud at 60%, and I think at over 80% it would literally damage my hearing. They're almost exactly twice as loud as the Jabras based on my normal listening volume level.

    Let's move on. I took my Senns out for the first time today (I haven't left the house since I've had them...) and was pleasantly surprised at how secure the fit was, how comfortable they were (hardly felt them) and how good they sounded while out and about. The other thing I was impressed at...

    No, I'm not saying that at all - I don't think you read my post. I'm merely saying that people should be careful about stating that they can hear differences, when placebo effect is a very real thing. You might think you're hearing an improvement, but unless it's double-blind, you can't be...

    Slightly leftfield question - has anyone registered their Sennheiser MTWs? It doesn't seem like that product is available on the Sennheiser product registration page....

    Maybe the issue was that the edges of the CD hadn't been painted with a green pen. ;)

    I haven't heard any hiss at all, although I've only had mine today so not a huge amount of listening. But certainly nothing noticeable. The case lid feels pretty solid and snaps shut nicely. Sounds like you have a bad set.

    Senn pushed out another update to the MTW Android app today. That's two updates in the last week. Guess they're working hard!

    With this SQ, that'll do fine for me. My commute is under 90 mins. Anything over the 3-hour mark is a bonus.

    Okay, so received my Senns this morning. Haven't used them for long, but can give a comparative opinion on the soundstage etc compared to the Jabra 65Ts. TL;DR: They rock. :) So much more bass and a much more open and clear soundstage. Tighter treble, less muddy than the Jabras. The sound...

    I wish there was a way to disable Alexa/Siri/GAssist on all of these 'phones (Jabra, Senn etc). Am I the only person who has literally no interest in using it or talking to my phone? :)

    Which was exactly my point. The quoted time is 4 hours. If that's for the master, it's fine. If that's for the slave, and the master drains even quicker, then it's less fine.
