    Can't get my oneplus6 phone to connect Bluetooth to the wm1a. They just don't see each other

    Just a stupid question but have you activated receiver on the 1A before trying to connect from the phone ?
  6. gazzington
    Yeah, it's switched on.

    Most of the time I have to restart my phone to get connected
    Anyone paired 1Z into their car system. I have flac 24bit and it sounds like mp3 192. Just bad!
    I have an Q5 and took the 1z first time outside and I’m disappointed by the Bluetooth quality.

    The WM1Z supports LDAC, AptX and AptX HD (on Bluetooth V. 4.2). This is the latest codecs currently available (Bluetooth 5.0 is out on some devices, but it's not mainstream yet, however it doesn't bring any additional benefits to the protocols mentioned earlier).

    Here's a link (https://www.sony.com/electronics/walkman/nw-wm1z/specifications) to the spec sheet on sony's website. Depending on the model and age of your car, it's very likely that the same protocols are not supported in your car, i.e. it's the car not the device.

    You can try something like the FiiO BTR3 (https://www.amazon.com/FiiO-BTR3-Bluetooth-Receiver-Portable/dp/B07FVN14FH) and see if that improves your experience.

    Or you could plug the device right into the MMI with the following adapter (https://www.amazon.com/CHELINK-Inte...argid=aud-801381245258:pla-391767880239&psc=1)

    What codec does your car support ?
    My car only support sbc so the result will never be good

    Thanks guys. I didn’t think about the Q5 conversion of flac.
    I’m not sure what it converts it too as I don’t have the options on the Q5 screen.
    Must be MP3 192 kbps or lower.
    Maybe the size of the drivers is what made Sony make usb housing from their initial EX300 to Z5.
    Now with M7,M9 & Z1R shaped to the size of our ears it could be a thing of the past.
    Also with things getting smaller and current lifestyle choices, years from now Z5 and similar looking iems could be in no wanted list!

    For the longest time I used the Sony Triple Comfort Tips with the Z5. The Triples came after the introduction of the Z5, but the stiffness they produce seemed to be another way to lock the Z5 better into place?

    That’s why they released another iem as their flagship, the fh7
