I love my Sony headphones, but this app is quite buggy. I typically have two devices hooked up to the headphones at a time, and when I lock the mic/speakers to one of the devices, it will switch to the other one automatically if there is a notification and will not return to the one I "locked" the headphones to. Very frustrating when a really good feature doesn't work at all!

I was forced to download this app because my 1000XM4s pause playback when they detect voices as a default setting. Why? I want to jam, and jamming means singing along. Having my headphones pause every time I sing along is annoying. It's so much worse when I have to download an app and give it unknown levels of access just so I can deactivate a feature that shouldn't have been default in the first place. The headphones are good, the overall user experience is not.

I find the software becomes unresponsive at least once a day, or worse executes the wrong commands based on input provided. Double-tap to stop? Fast forward or restart from beginning. Slide forward to skip forward? We know you really meant turn down the volume. Shutting down the software and relaunching usually fixes this, but for the money you pay for products, you'd think Sony would actually put some talented people on the development teams. Disappointing and frustrating.
