Hello there

I have a PXC 550. It’s great but it’s getting old and the ANC is not great, although I believe it offers the best SQ for ANC headphone.

I found this site and the Sony seems to be the number 1. Would you agree with them?
Anyone got it and could share feedback?

I’m also interested in the successor of my PXC but I was expecting new features. I hate Bose.

I will use it mainly for flying: 16 flights this year some 14h direct, one 17!

I just played 5 min with it. I had trouble to make it worked. It didn’t want to get started. I had to look online how to factory reset it!
Now it works. ANC is great, really impressive. I’ll try in the public transport tomorrow.
SQ is good, surprisingly I was expecting something not great coming from a PXC 550.
I’ve read some reviews that an update of firmware would reduce efficiency of ANC. Is this true?

Can anyone recommend some good wireless earbuds

Powerbeats pro / AirPods pro/ or the Sony Wireless Earbuds?

Sony WH-1000MX3. I forgot to turn on ANC! It’s amazing! They are doing construction work next door, it blocked 90% of the noise.
I’m starting to love more and more this gadget!
