As one of the original NT01AX fans, I'm in a special hell right now of hearing you all try them - but since I'm now living on an island - Amazon won't ship them to me. I've been trying to figure out whether to get the N6 or N6 Pro drop-shipped, but now these Aviot's sound pretty interesting. I don't love the look of the case, but it may appear to be larger in pictures than in real life.

May I know where you bought your Aviot's?
I bought from a 3rd party tec_Japan at Amazon. They shipped them from Japan, but still very fast, delivered after 2 days using DHL. The only grip about Aviot is the noticeable hiss before burning in, but after a while the hiss reduces quite a lot and now is on par with that from N6 pro. If you get a defect one, though, the return can be an issue. I contacted them about the hiss. They made some suggestions that I already did, like re-set, re-pair, trying different devices, etc. Then I asked 20% discount when hiss became less and I still loved the overall package. Pushed them after couple of weeks, I ended up getting 10% back. I don't really blame them for that since that's not their fault, and overall their support was good. But if I really got a defect one, and seems Aviot has many complaints in Japan, I would have trouble returning them and getting full refund.

Two other questions: They are touch controls? How do you find their sensitivity?

Also, how do you feel they are handling your phone call needs (I know, not about music SQ, but super important to me and something the Nuarl's have nailed). Thank you!
No, they're button controlled, which are awkward and Nuarl works better.
I tried to make some calls a couple of times in my office and heard no complaints, though admitted I do not use them for calls with APP on my desk:)

Anyone with the Senn Momentum TWs using the app EQ? If so, care to share what yours looks like?

I'm finding a nudge to the right with the treble, to lower the bass a little, helps a heap.
Here is where I currently have mine set. Slightly to the right and down.

I read about this about a week ago. At least with Apple, they usually fix stuff pretty quickly. I have also seen some complaints that the silicone rips degrade quickly and harm isolation. At least they are cheap to replace.
Yep, the tips don't seem to last very long. The left side on mine frequently detaches now. :rage:

I do have to say the N6 and N6 Pro buttons have been excellent. It makes you wonder why other companies haven't hopped on the train of having multiple buttons on each side that mirror each other. I love being able to change the volume, etc. with either hand.

I agree. But the size of Aviot, on the button surface, is even smaller than Mavin air-X. I suspect how they can manage the N6 pro buttons. That'll be extremely tiny and hard for my fingers to reach.

My apologies in advance if this is not the right forum or thread for this post. I have the Cambridge Melomania 1s. There's a ton that I like about them, but I'm thrown off about the battery life. I seem to be getting about 6-7 hours of battery life out of them, but the battery life indicators seem really, really off.

I'm judging the earbud percentage life based on what my phone is telling me. I'll run it 6 hours or so until it gets to 50%-60%. But at that point, it'll drop to dead within 1 hour to 75 minutes. I've reached out to Cambridge Audio, but after a week, I haven't heard back. I reached back out today, so hopefully I'll hear back from them. Anyone else experiencing this?

Has anyone here tried the TFZ X3? I have the X1E and its alright but I think I would have preferred the BA drivers instead. Thought maybe I would try the X3 because its on massdrop right now, but I can't find much info about it.

I have them. How do you know they are at a certain percentage? There is no app with them, right? Not sure how to tell where they are battery-wise. Of course, I hardly ever go past 2-3 hours max, and once on a flight. I love the sound, more than most here it seems. And with the medium foam tips, they are a fantastic fit. I got lucky I think, because they don't bother me, the fit that is. And their sound is to me, great. Anyway, their guy in tech support, Nicolas, has been very responsive to me.

FYI Version 2.1.0 Firmware is now available for the Sony WF-1000 XM3's Supposed to improve call quality, i'm updating now, will report back.
Just picked up the 1000xm3's and updated to the new firmware before I could compare the two versions. I'm curious if there were improvements to anything? Calls are decent, not bad, but still far from APP quality. I don't think anything is even close to the APP in regards to call quality.

The only thing i've noticed is the ability to change from ambient to noise canceling while on a call in the app, but maybe you could do that before. Everything else seems the same. They work pretty well, except when I use Siri to adjust the volume, The volume defaults to around 50%. Super annoying.
