Wow, only our old SQ planes are using the dual socket... Lol
HAHAHA yes... and one of the KLM planes are using the dual socket (but they give out the dual-socket to 3.5mm adapter to everyone for free) on the plane.

So buying the dual socket is still safer as can only use one socket if needed.

I've finally whacked one set from Qoo10 at $269.

$349 - 34.9 (10% off Stereo coupon) - 30 ($30 off 200 coupon) and pay $284.1 using 200 Qcoin (worth $269)

Nice. All using same method of payment then we all getting at 269 instead.

Hi everyone.

Would like to ask existing users a question. My WF-1000XM3 gets a lot of signal interference when I was at busy malls. It's quite unbearable, signal keeps breaking every other minute as I walk through busy malls.

Is this common for bluetooth earbuds? Or is it just my set that is defective? I love the sound of my WF-1000XM3 and would really hate to return it. Just want to confirm if my set is defective or this is a common issue for bluetooth earbuds so I should just bear with it?

Does it only happen on one bud or both buds? Maybe you can try isolating the problem by using just one bud on either side and see if the problem only occurs with a particular bud.

Both are affected but it seems the right one is more susceptible.

I tried switching to Priority to Connection. Improvement is barely noticeable. Also tried turning off the ANC, same results.

The last resort that I have yet to try is to turn off the wifi on my phone since the biggest suspect is wifi interference. Even so, it's quite sad to have to turn off wifi to have good connection to earbuds.

Does anyone here experience the same or all of the users have a fuss free experience in the mall? If all of you do not have the same experience, I will definitely return my set for a refund.

Just tried this morning. Not good. Managed to pair but not connected for audio. Even during pairing, couldn't see WF-1000XM3 name, I have to chance it on a weird random-looking model name.

I'll try again later perhaps.

I'm guessing it will be improved after updates?

I understand that the WH-1000XM3 connects to Windows 10 without much problem.

Perhaps it's just me being noob at it.
