Just tested at the STEREO shop with Huawei Mate 20X. Initially it connects using LDAC then for some reason it connects using SBC. After that can select but cannot revert to LDAC.

I guess the reason lies here

https://www.soundguys.com/ldac-ultim...h-guide-20026/

Sound-wise it's rather flat as compared to the B&O H9i. The SONY ANC, its comfort and controls are much better than the H9i though
What reasons?

It is probably the settings on either the phone or the pair of headphones (assuming someone used the headphone application and changed the settings)

Consumers have long been acclimatised to products that are EQ-ed to that of "musical" that neutral sounding headphones have become "flat". In that case, you can tune the eq to your own preference.

I'm the one using the headphone then.

I used the app and set to Treble Boost but to no avail because the BT codec has changed to SBC. Can't change back to LDAC

well i can't pinpoint why you couldn't, but for the app, some of the settings if enabled will change the bt codec to SBC. the LDAC codec will only be used if you listening to it with no changes except for ambient sound/NC

If that's the case no need app better mah. Change app settings and sound goes south to SBC

Just to complete the picture. I unpaired the SONY headphone from my Huawei Mate 20X, reset my Huawei and re-pair to SONY but stii codec doesn't change to LDAC but remains as SBC

Just tested the Sony at Stereo@Plaza Singapura and HN@Millenia Walk still cannot change from SBC to LDAC.

However, tested the BOSE and it showed AAC

So, cannot be so many Sony headphones got problem. Must be something wrong with Huawei's LDAC Bluetooth codec

The app is required because that is only way to update firmware as well as provide customisation and optimisation capabilities
