I just saw earlier they put price tag $349, member price $331.....where’s the $299 promo? Need to approach their staffs for special price ??? Please advise. Thanks 🙏🏻
The $299 I saw at Jurong Point was displayed in front of the display. But the shop next door don’t seems to have the $299 promo. Maybe selected retailers?

Sony got so many headphone models. Quite amazed at how they manage the product lines.

I checked with the Challenger at Plaza Sing - $299 for the old model, $331 for member price for new model.

Think if you got the new model for $299, it was a mistake by the staff

Actually the only thing I would agree with him slightly is the wind noise. If I'm sitting close in front of a fan, can hear the swoosh swoosh sound, but he exaggerated cos when normal walking or even running doesn't have that sound. The wind in Hong Kong must be really strong all the time. As for the microphonics, every earbuds that seals to the ears will have this effect, so it's not unique to this Sony.

Some of the shortcoming I find are can accidentally touch the earbuds when taking them out of the case and inadvertently turn on the ambient sound control. Also, if using without a case and the auto turn off function is turned on, if I put the buds into my pocket, they will turn on as the proximity sensor is triggered by my clothes.

I'd agree with the ranking on this list for sound quality though.

Yup yup, I also agree with him on the wind noise. Its my first time getting noise-cancelling earphones, so I don't know if its normal to hear the wind while wearing it...

The part on the proximity sensor triggered by your clothes also happens on my previous earphones: Samsung IconX (2018).

Through my one-week use, there are drops on the right earbuds (even though Sony app set to Connection Priority). Usually it happens when I'm walking, then the right earbud will become silent, while the left still got music. It normally comes back around 5s or less. But it happened again today while I was seated down and having a meal. Am using these earphones on Samsung Galaxy S10+. Hopefully the firmware update will solve this connection problem.

Happy with the sound quality of the earphones. Its much better than the Samsung IconX (2018) where the bass is almost not there.

limbeh went over to the counter to scan and the price was showing up as $349

the other forumer who said he got the new model at $299 must have gotten lucky due to a mistake by a noob staff lah. or maybe just talking cock only.

i din buy as only left gold sets when i was there (best denki clementi)

Hey guys, just thought i'd share some good news! I got mine at Best Denki Clementi for $299. Not sure how long the promo will last but definitely must go! When i bought it on Thursday, still got stock for black and silver! GO GO GO!

Meanwhile, anyone have any idea if any comply's will go with these? mind telling me which too? CHEERS!
You can ask the above guy to GPGT as i saw his post then went down to best denki to check it out and saw that the new sony wf-1000xm3 were priced at $299. To be honest, i also feel weird since its new model and newly launched so wondering why will there be a price drop. i even asked the sales there if they have stock for black but she said no so i just left.

Just walked passed Clementi Best Denki, price back to $349. Friday was $299. Probably a mistake or a limited time promo I guess.
