    Sorry for reviving an old issue.
    I am a new obtainer of a ZX2. I got it used and looks like new - definitely a well-preserved and looked after unit.
    The headphone socket, however, seems to be a bit wobbly with any iems or headphones I have tried it with. No drop-outs or noise whatsoever but am a bit worried about it as It was not a cheap purchase after all(even if I got it used).

    I read that quite a few users have had the same issue.
    I would be interested to see if there is any update from those users as well as what's the general consensus over this?

    If you can find a internal diagram, you know why, just a heads up, the headphone socket is not soldered to the mainboard, it's held in place from the units frame, this puts less stress on the main board and less wear and tear from pulling the headphones in and out of the socket.

    Oh, I see. That's why the plastic barrel of the socket seems to be moving around the gold-metal structure which surrounds it.
    So it's basically the plastic body of the socket moving in the metal chassis than anything else.

    Very well-thought I have to say. Impressed!

    Zx2 is the best walkman I have ever used, my only hope is for its successor to come out with the latest android OS
  9. kms108
    It's not going to happen, if you want android OS, get a Xperia.

    Does anyone know which archived version of UAPP I should download to be compatible with the ZX2? Where can I source it?
  11. josephtym
    Well, the thing is the mobile division not doing so well. My service provider isn't Carrying Sony phones anymore and I had to opt for the hua wei mate 20 pro...
    Besides xperia phone built for audio can't compare to zx2.

    I also have to attest that in terms of pure SQ, this thing is second to none! Nothing I have used comes close to it. Not even remotely....
    I recently sold my Hiby R6.

    I agree, Xperia phones don't come close in terms of SQ, Sony has ditched the android OS, and used their in house Sony OS, with android OS and full customization, either Xperia or some thing like the Onkyo.
