You will need the app to setup the earphones just once and then you do not require the app anymore. I think this is the case as I did not launch the app after the initial setup. The only downside is that you will not be able to monitor the battery life in each earbud.

I am not familiar with the LDAC issue you described. If your source has LDAC and the headphones supports LDAC, shouldn’t it pair automatically via LDAC? This was my experience paring my ZX300 with the WI-1000X. I selected LDAC on the player and the earphones would pair via LDAC. With the WF-1000XM3, it pairs via SBC automatically as the player does not support AAC. On my iPhone, it connects via AAC because I selected best quality music over connection via the app.
My HW 20X supports LDAC. When connecting the Sony Wh-1000xm3 it'll auto connect using LDAC. However, when installed the Sony app it'll auto connect using SBC. There's no way to change to LDAC. This is a weakness as addressed in some youtube clips and also commented by users
