I don't usually write interviews so I'll leave this to the experts but the voice recognition could use some work. I prefer to use the noise canceling mode as ambient can get in the way of music or shows and I'll see it randomly change at times when it shouldn't. Otherwise a pretty good app with lots of customization.

It's annoying to use as all of the most used features (ambient sound control for me) are not front and center when you open the app. It also has a pop up about how some pair of headphones I don't own got some update that improved stability or some feature I should try that I don't care about nearly every time you open the app, and you can't dismiss it until it loads. The only thing you can change from the widget is the EQ, which I tend to set and forget.

The app is good overall. I'm really thankful they don't force you to create an account or anything like that. My one problem is how tap controls are set. They require you to select controls from "groups" of controls, like one group allows you to control ANC/Ambient sound settings, and another let's you control media playback, but you can't mix the two at all. I would really like to choose each tap/hold action's function for a mix of controls with media and ambient sound.
