I get close to 25 hours per charge and I charge once a week. Don't think it's ever been off since I got my 1A. Less battery life for more driving power? Pffft get a Sony

Just a stupid question but have you activated receiver on the 1A before trying to connect from the phone ?

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

@kausbose, @nc8000

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!
The Z5 is amazing. I do really like them. Though the fit is so strange. It’s like a USB stick attempting to be set into your ear. Sony tried to lock it down with those included cables but they were trouble too. So as far as sound the Z5 has a natural cohesive charm still making it competitive today in the $500 range. IMO

But even while using the Z5 before the IER-Z1R came out I wanted more treble and mid-action. Though after listening to the IER-Z1R for 60 days.......going back shows the Z5 to actually have way-way more bass. It’s crazy, but you get less “fog” with the sub-bass tune of the IER-Z1R. Also it’s heads above in all other areas.......better treble detail and extension, better imaging, faster......bigger soundstage.....even though it has big mid-recession, the midrange is still there. So... it’s a continuation of the sound Sony has been developing. But the treble with the IER-Z1R may be a little intense for some? Also they don’t fit everyone. But one great thing is the included cables which are better than many aftermarket cables and better than the MMCX Kimber. IMO

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?
