Sony XB950N1/XB950B1 and LDAC Support

    Hello, all.

    I recently bought the Sony XB950N1 headphones. They were on sale at Amazon for $115 (some sellers weren't even charging taxes).

    I purchased specifically those headphones because they were in my price range, but mainly because I want LDAC support. If I'm going to use Bluetooth headphones and speakers, I want the best possible quality, and LDAC seems to be a better codec than aptX HD.

    And now, LDAC support is going to be included in Android Oreo as part of AOSP, so every manufacturer can include the codecs in their phones, courtesy of Sony.

    But I have been reading conflicting information. Do the Sony XB950N1 (or the similar XB950B1) support LDAC?

    No. the headphones support SBC, AAC and APTX.
