Good Overall

The app is easy to use and I had no trouble connecting my WF-1000XM3 earphones. My suggestions to for an improved experience are:

- to attribute functions via gestures rather than function sets for greater customisation. For instance, I’d like to replace holding for Siri with Alexa and still keep my music controls intact.

- adding a reverb filter option. I’ve found that I’ve been far more immersed in my earphones when playing music with a slight reverberation. If it’s at all possible, I’d love to see it here.

- being able to toggle the active equaliser via a gesture. It would be nice to swap between bass boost depending on what’s playing without opening the app.

- structuring the equaliser preset list to be vertically scrolling with all items present. Rather than remembering which preset corresponds to which dot below, I’d like to simply select one from a list for a direct comparison. Keep the list open as I choose and compare presets then allow me to close it once I’ve made my choice.

Again, I’m quite happy with the app as is, but these additions would really help make it and my earphones more useful and enjoyable.

REQUEST FOR SONY PROGRAMMERS. The headphones I have are great. The Sony WH-1000XM2's are what I purchased after a process of comparing with Bose offerings, a process I am sure many are familiar with, given the extensive online comments over these two headphones. I am happy with the headphones, especially after using on an international flight. What is annoying though is the app used. Here is one simple thing Sony can do to improve its offering. I use an iPad to access the app and it is obviously aimed at iPhone users. I have not been able to put tha app into landscape mode, which is much more natural to use on the iPad. PLEASE Sony fix this simple problem and support your users. I don't think it is wrong to say that software support and ease of use are as important nowadays as hardware offerings.
So at the moment I can only give this 2 stars. Given the price of Sony headphones you might think they would put a bit more effort into the software. I completely agree with another commentator re Sony Hardware vs Software efforts. You only find these things out after you make the purchase unfortunately.

Superb WH1000-XM2 room for improvement App

I love these Sony headphones has exceed my expectations. Regarding the app worked flawlessly the first time attempted the Bluetooth pair. App has nice features especially the EQ. Now after the 5th attempt to pair the headphone it wouldn’t work worth the app, tried restart the app, restarting the iPhone. No joy! So I attempted to manually disconnect the device in the Settings/Bluetooth section and then selecting “forget the device” switching off the headphone then back on and repairing.

Success! I’d recommend this path for users experiencing app connectivity issues.
