Yeah, i never get any dropping connection issue. I mainly use xm5 for my PC and phone. I also activate LDAC.

I also read some people got the foam tips issue. What make it unwearable?
The stock foams are just too small for my ears

I can see how this shape of tips might not fit some ears. Quiet similar case with Dunu S&s tips. Anyway i also like how xm5 sound with sony silicon tips ep-ex11. It give more midbass and warmer overall unfortunately it have no wax protection.

Unfortunately they just don't stay up and never pass the test.
I have not experience this issue until today.

This new update change the soundsig quiet a lot IMO i like how this TWS sound now unlike before. It is smoother warmer but the upper frequency is not lacking in soundstage and details. I dont touch the EQ at all. Very enjoyable and very good!

It’s not the shape for me, they are simply just too small. It’s been the same with XM3, XM4, Z5 and Z1R

Wow you must have a very big ear canal so what eartips did you end up with?

Spinfit Large CP360 have worked for me, stock foams are just a bit too small and the medium CP360 fit fine on my XM4, I had to size up to the large with the XM5.

Ended up using the 4.5mm size ones. The 4.7mm were a touch oversized and would pull off with the tips.

Is this safe? What if it fell inside your ear?

Noticed some Azla tips with earguard 40% off in Amazon UK black friday so even though perfectly happy with my usual Spinfit CP100 and nylon stocking filter, I ordered some.

Went for MS same as Spinfit and slightly wider body, shallower depth but fit like a glove and test seal great with Sony App.

The silicon is thicker overall and I think gives more isolation and a bit more weight, bit less treble.

Colour matches my grey/white XM5 perfectly. Will stick with them as wax guard great.

Some pics vs Spinfit with stocking guards 😉
