Thinking of getting one but I perspire easily so im not sure if getting a headphone is a good idea.. those who owned the previous model, does it get flaky fast? Can I send it to the Sony store to replace the headband once it turns flaky? Thanks!

I previously using the mx2. The ear cup is abit hot for me and i also perspire easily too. That's why I change to IEM now. But the mx3 might be different cuz i have not tried.

I'm sure you can to Sony service centre but don't think it's covered under warranty though.

Shipping is $40. End up $440 for Korea set with no warranty. Worth it?

I see review mx2 like sound better.. But all this headphone sure heat up yr ears.. Thus Bluetooth Iem is better choice.. Dun know why Sony dun concentrate on bluetooth Iem.. Cheaper to make and better sound q and comfort.

No GST. They purposely price it below 400. But the shipping as good as gst liao.

The noise cancelling won't be as good. There needs be a seal around the ear for this type of NC to work. They also make BT NC ear buds, but the design means the NC just isn't as good - these headphones have a very specific audience.

Nearly every review I see says xm3 better. Where say xm2 audio better?

I think most reviews suggest XM3 as a much more superior NC headphones as compared to the XM2.

If the QAQC don’t improve then no point to buy. Just imagine it crack after few months of usage
