This application works great to adjust the Sony headphones I have. The EQ works quite well and has a separate extra bass slider, and it's easy to use. The noise cancelling is solid, and there are options to automate when it's on or off in the app. One thing of note though, not specific to just Sony products but this goes for anything with Bluetooth Multipoint mode: If you keep getting intermittent disconnections, turn off that feature, it struggles if you have lots of interference around you.

Moving past the frustration of another seemingly unnecessary app, I download and begin to create yet another account. I have never before encountered the puzzles I'm prompted with when trying to sign in. It took me nine tries to proceed, but to no avail. I'm trapped in an eternal reset password loop full of buggy puzzles that do not reward completion. At least the headphones can still be connected and the default settings sound pretty ok.

Pros: 1. The app many different customizational options for your listening to enhance your experience. 2. It is not very buggy. 3. You can keep track of how long you've used your headphones/earbuds Cons: 1. Bit overwhelming for someone to get the hang of it. 2. Some products don't offer many QOL options (like not being able to turn off notifications sounds on my XM5s). 3. Some features could use some tweaks such as adaptive sound control which sometimes detects my actions wrong. Hope this helps
