This app is an unfinished pile of garbage. What the heck does this even mean? "Quick access is a function that allows you to use the service by operating headphones" Then a menu to set what two and three presses do. Except that menu is unclickable. Why am I not able to set the default mode is between hear thru, anc, or none? Every time I take the earbud out and put it back in, it goes back to hear thru. I set adaptive sound control to use anc in all situations, but that still doesn't work

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.

Stop the popups and forced manuals. I just want to change a setting on my headphones, why do I need to be accosted by updates that have NOTHING to do with products I own. Those are ads. No I don't want to setup 360 audio, no I don't want to read the manual. Just let me change a setting without having to close a window every time I open the app.
