The app is OK, as are the headphones. I have trouble initializing them, or randomly connecting, despite having them properly in the case and cleaned. The function of the app is fine, I wish it could connect when the buds aren't, I'd like to see some diagnostics or troubleshooting if the buds are having issues, but otherwise, they're OK. I don't really use the other profiles or whatever too often. It is nice to be able to rempap the controls on each side. I wish resetting the buds was easier.

Great except crashes twice upon opening before finally achieving stability. Just started happening in the past month or so. Start the app, wait for it to crash. Start again, let it crash one more time. Third time it always works. Really annoying because I'm switching my second Bluetooth device 10+ times a day, and I have to use the app for that. Makes for some awkward beginnings to video meetings.

Clean interface. Would be nice to have more on screen help. After tutorial I forgot a lot of the features. Works well otherwise. Hasn't crashed. Seems to be responsive with 1000MX4. And Sony has been doing a great job working out the bugs which I appreciate. One thing to remember when folks say the app or headphones don't work, I find most often the media/music app is not great. The Sony stuff works. Test a different app and see what that does. YouTube for example.
