The WFs have never been advertised for active use

Don't know why people insist on running in these things

Get wired BT earpieces instead, you can find good and cheap ones on Aliexpress or any online shop for like 30 bucks.

Anecdotal experience. But I been to the service center twice. (did not send for repair the 1st time.) and both timez I saw people there with the earbuds.

Not saying there is an issue with connectivity since most people here seem fine. But I would say best to get with warranty. Imo it's a risk if you go for no warranty sets.

Sony's warranty claim experience is pretty dismal imo even though their product is good.

Same. I got it at $239 after $30 discount voucher from Korea. Should be able to receive it this week.

was at the Sony Experience store in NEX
Was told next batch in Oct

Tested the unit and was quite happy, placed an order in Qoo10 for the Korean export set
Ok with getting a $100 discount for a set w/o warranty
shall be using this for my daily commute while the Creative Outlier Gold for workouts

Fit was tight for me fortunately
jumped about, shook my head quite vigorously but couldn't feel any signs of the buds slipping out

pairing was so easy with NFC as well
the widely complained issue in reddit where single bud use causing issues wasnt experienced by me so i guess the firmware fixed it

May I know how many of you use the WF-1000XM3 with Note 9?

I had the earbuds for a couple of weeks and they were awesome until I hit the malls where I experienced frequent signal interferences about once every few minutes.

I had since returned the earbuds to the korean seller who didn't want to do anything about it. I am thinking about buying another pair with warranty this time but am wondering if Note 9 is the issue. Does anyone have the same problem, especially Note 9 users?

Try qoo10 with sunday coupon.
Go for local set sellers.
The best discount may at $40 to $60 max?
