I have been a long time Sony headphone user. This is my first pair of Sony Bluetooth headphones. These are horrible. I cannot find a way to keep them from constantly turning themselves off. They do not seem to stay paired with my phone or my PC. The app is clunky and lacks necessary features. I was also annoyed that there is not an app for PC. I shouldn't have to control the headphones that are paired to my PC with my phone. I'm constantly having to reconnect them during Zoom calls. Please fix.

Rather good. Allows quite detailed configuration. But three criticisms: 1. It's a bit of a pain to have very different playback controls between earbuds (WF-1000XM4 and XM5). Should be the option to set the same. 2. I would love to see the battery levels of my headsets even when not connected (the last received level). 3. It's a shame that the wind reduction option from the WF-1000XM4 is not available on the XM5. Would be great to add it.

I will be skipping Sony when it's time to get new headphones because of this app. There are a ton of features that don't work right and detract from the experience. For instance, if auto-off is enabled, when I lift the headphones off my ear momentarily it stops the audio and the only way to fix it is to reconnect Bluetooth. Really a pain when you are on a zoom call and your kid comes in to ask you a question. I'm not sure if anyone at Sony has ever used this app. They probably all use airpods.
