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

    If you have an Android phone that's the last thing you should be looking at IMO. Apple makes things to work well in their walled garden, that's their goal to get you only on their products. And while many are fine and some are great, the integration is a huge part of it. There are far better...

    I'm in the same boat. And not full sized cans. I want the sound of the MTW3 or even AZ60 but with good phone calls. The MTW3 are better than the AZ60 but they both fail when it gets even a little noisy or windy outdoors. Perfectly fine indoors, but I need them to take good calls when I'm walking...

    Anybody have any luck with Sennheiser CS lately? My amazing sounding MTW3 have the issue where when you put them in the case sometimes the magnets aren't strong enough to disconnect them from the phone. It's been 9 days and I got an automated email response with a ticket # but absolutely no...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    Thanks for the info. These were probably used just like 100 hours and always kept on a stand, next to my T90's. The headband does show wear and tear but they have spent most of the last 5 years just sitting on the stand, so that's strange. These were always listened to at my desk and never on...

    Went on a trip recently and brought both the MTW3 and the AZ60 of which I love both. But I did a lot of going back and forth between them like 30 min with one pair and then 20 min with the other. Without a doubt I prefer the MTW3 sound a bit more. It's noticeable. I love the AZ60's so it's...

    This is exactly how I rate them for sound quality. The AZ60 have the worst call quality. I don't like that the sennheisers only show you battery status in 10% increments. I'm still testing MTW3 battery life so I can't say who's the best but it's probably not them, though it seems good enough...

    The Sennheiser medium tips sealed the best but they got a little uncomfortable. I've been trying numerous of my other tips but nothing seems to seal as well. Anyway I think the MTW3 ANC is not as good as the XM4 or the AZ 60. It does well with steady low frequency noises but it's not like the...

    I am not seeing a way to tell the percentage the case of the AZ60 is charged to? Am I missing something?

    When I went to Bloom Audio to pick up my Meze Rai Pentas (which I loved but sold due to low usage of all wired IEM's, they were $1299 new I think) and talked with the owner, who is a really nice dude and huge audiophile - he kinda said what a lot of people say, there is definitely a big point of...

    I tried Comply's, Spinfits, i think Auvio tips and one other set I can't remember what they are, with the AZ60's - the stock tips definitely seem to be the best. I am digging these. I see why a lot of people are quite happy with them. I do really like that you can set it to double tap to...

    Got the AZ60 today. I can definitely say I like the sound a bit better than the XM4. It's nice that they are smaller but the XM4 fit me fine too. I was on the phone and my sister said I sounded a bit muffled. I made sure that the noise reduction setting for calls was on normal, not strong. Am...

    I have the xm4 and am happy with them eq'd a bit. Really like the battery life, the ANC, and they fit good. I drink ordered the AZ60 and they get here today from Amazon. Thinking of returning them unopened but also to try them - for those who have used both, what are the biggest differences?

    Yep, I'm back on ldac and have had no left bud issue yet either, pixel 6 pro

    Well I'll be damned. I put these on LDAC after I saw your post and I've purposely taken them in and out of the case numerous times to connect, always perfect. Also when I used to use voice assistant to type something, often it would disconnect a bud. I tested that too many times, no problems...

    Thanks. I mostly take calls on my TWS when walking the dog so that might be problematic. I will do some more reading.

    Yeah I don't expect much at all from the Senn battery life. The MTW2 battery life was rated with them at 50% volume (which was low) with no ANC and not even sure with which codec. That was the main area of improvement I wanted. That and a better quality ANC. Too bad, they sound really good and...

    Sony WF-1000XM4 Impressions Thread

    This has been an ongoing issue with the Sony's and my Pixel 5 and now my Pixel 6 Pro. When I connect only one bud plays sound like half the time. I have to choose to play the music through the phone then go back to the Sony's and then it works fine. But if I then go to text someone and use the...

    May just be me but if you are EQ'ing that much it might be time for a different pair of buds

    Except he's right and you're wrong. Sennheiser changed the sound of the MTW2 with firmware but made it a setting you could toggle on and off so it was an option. This is the way. Imagine buying, keeping and having the MT for the SQ and the company goes and changes it significantly after your...

    the MT were the loudest set I've tried between the MTW2, XM4, the top end Technics, the JBL Club Pro Plus. They all kind of topped out near the same volume whereas the MT had a noticeable bit extra volume.

    😎 I use a large in the Auvios. But medium with the stock tips and Spinfits so YMMV

    I found out which tips I have found in my collection of tips, that have become my permanent tips for these buds. They have a wide bore like the EP-01 but are longer so you can insert them better for superior isolation. These buds just sound lovely with them. Nothing too dark at all, and a nice...

    The case battery draining issue was with the original Senn MTW, not the MTW2

    Got the Epro tips in today and just started using them. The previous silicone tips I was using were also wide bore, but they were longer. The Epro tips are much smaller, so let's see how they isolate. So far so good at home. I'm listening to one of my favorite tracks - New York Morning by Elbow...
