Read online many other countries even in Canada and the States are Out of stock. Maybe they were all recalled to fix some major issue? If so the available stocks from South Korea may have some issues.

The first set I bought from Korea often get interferences at shopping malls. Bros here shared they didn't have this problem.

Finally got it returned and refunded via Qoo10 intervention after the seller at 1st (the store name) played punk and dragged the whole checking process for weeks and months by giving me the same reply to my messages once every 2 weeks without putting in any due diligence to check the earbuds.

I was hoping that it was just my particular set because I just took a chance yesterday on another Korean set with another store that was selling at a low price and even more so after applying the $50 cart coupon. That's effectively $204.

Now your comment has me worried. Should I cancel it?

All made in Malaysia. If recall why recall only in US and Canada? Unless substantiated with source, then it is utter Garbage.

Canada and US still has stocks. But it’s slightly more expensive to buy in Canada and it’s about the same price as SG in the States, so not worth it considering you might not get warranty support in SG. Narita Airport transit is sold out too, if you’re wondering.

Yes. Bought a few more items to qualify for $400 quota to use the $50 cart coupon. I need a 256GB SD Card anyway. Wanted a 400GB or 512GB one but no good deals for them. :/

Bought a set at Doha airport for USD260. Comes with global sony warranty.

Sound drops on public transport for me. Not consistent. Usually when phone is in left pocket.

Sound quality is great. Noise cancelling is good - not as good as over ears but of course like that.

Don't like there's no off button - have to load Headphones app to turn off ear buds, which takes 10 seconds for some reason to load.

For those who cannot wait.

Can consider getting Sennheiser MTWS.
If buy from qoo10 Official Sennheiser Shop with the right coupons and credit card,
the price can be only $369.

Pay $19 more for better sound quality TWS.
Tons of stocks. lol
No drop off for me so far.
As for Sony, the right side tends to have disturbances while jogging.

Cheers!
