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

    lol yes saw that one, I kept scrolling down on my phone and I thought I'd hit the wrong link or something - it went on for miles!

    I did't say there was anything negative, just read the ANC and sound quality are not as good so would have had to import it, realise that, then have the hassle of selling it on.

    Was very close to ordering the ATH-TWX9. Read some of the translated reviews on Amazon JP especially those comparing the xm4 and seems I've side stepped that landmine lol

    Got the APP2 a couple days ago and gave them all of Saturday and Sunday to decide if I was keeping them. I didn’t feel like there were stark differences between the 1st gen and these. I will say that they are the most comfortable I’ve tried and the transparency mode is the best I’ve heard on...

    Was very tempted to order a pair from Amazon.jp but glad I didn't. ANC is important to me when I'm out and about.

    Had a week with the Sennheiser CX Plus, quite impressed with the ANC once you get the fit right, obviously nothing compared to the XM4 but at the price point, very decent. The tips supplied with the CX plus are awful though. Every tws should come with the comply like tips that the XM4 come...

    Thanks for that info. That's very interesting, this certainly has me interested. I don't really need another pair of TWS, but I do like what JVC offer sound wise so wouldn't mind trying this but I see it's only available via Drop?

    Excited to see the reviews for the JVC woodie TWS. Loved the wired FW01.

    This hobby seems to drive some people crazy looking for the perfect set of earphones lol The XM4 tick all the boxes for me, so glad I don't need to spend a single penny on anything else. Just be content people with what you have. Saying that, those potential JVC TWS potential woodies have me...

    Same here, very happy with them as a package. Can't be touched by any other on the market for everything in one set of truly wireless - if they fit you. I understand some have emperor ears and want only the very best sound matching wired earphones. LDAC is pretty decent from my experience...

    I had the XM3 since they were released and only recently transferred over to the XM4 and I can tell you that the treble is an improvement over the XM3. I would say the XM4 has more authoritative bass over the XM3 so if you're not a lover of bass then stick with the XM3. Have given it a mix of...

    I own the XM4 and have had the Touch previously, and this is not going to really help but with this hobby, end of the day, there is no better only what you like lol Both are good, with these kind of matters it's an unfortunate case of having to try things yourself and decide with your own set of...

    Enjoying the XM4s. Sony got to be commended for the wind noise reduction feature, was a bit blustery yesterday when out and turned them on and was really impressed having been disappointed with the XM3 for that very reason. Wanted to keep the feature on permanently but apparently drains...

    For those of you looking to run in the XM4, went out for a second longer run today and you do actually feel them after about an hour, I think it’s mainly because it was a hot day, but they did manage to stay glued to the ears. In this regard, I think I prefer the AirPods Pro for running as they...

    I dig the Melomania Touch. It’s a very decent sounding tws for the money but frustrated me with the connection issues. I look forward to the next iteration 100% if they keep or improve on the sound quality but work on improving the overall experience.

    I know we always say this and that is better than this but really it all boils down to personal preference and opinion. I’m also into running and I always say one shoe that works for me might not necessarily work for someone else. Thank god for good old return policies in this game lol

    Just took the XM4 through The Prodigy's Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned and Massive Attack's Blue Line album. Get's the thumbs up from me! Really goes hand in hand with the EDM / dance stuff I've thrown at it. I find you don't even need ANC on most of the time, especially at home, even...

    Sony WF-1000XM4 Impressions Thread

    Spent the evening with the XM4, extremely happy with the purchase, no connection issues at all with iPhone. Sound is clearly a step up from XM3. Fit is excellent on me, almost as good as the Melomania touch (which I still rank as the best fitting tws out there). Things got interesting when I...

    Will mostly listen to the XM4 via iPhone but look forward to trying them out with the Kann Alpha dap which supports LDAC so can give a real world test of battery life with ldac.

    I listen to a fair amount of electronic and I found the xm3 to be great for that. I’m looking forward to hearing what sonic improvements there are with the new set.

    Wf xm3 price just dropped on Amazon uk, £153 now. Cheapest I’ve seen them, they must know (or have in warehouse) new ones are coming out and trying to clear out stock.

    The hype is strong with this one lol But I have a feeling Sony will deliver.

    If they’re anywhere as comfy as the Cambridge Audio Melomania Touch then I think they have a winner on their hands.
