My wf 1000x is weird. When I do pairing or turning it on by pressing the left button for 7secs, the right side doesnít turn on, no sound at all. When the voice said power on, itís only on the left ear. I had to switch between ambient sound on/off or NC off for the right side to have sound.

Anyone experienced same problem?
Have you tried to update the latest firmware?

Is it charged? U need to press down both ends of the earbud into the charging case and each earbud should have a red light.

do they come off easily?
For my ears, yes they come off easily. So I store them away while looking for viable size silicone earpiece cover alternatives

I have and sold off the Sony WF-1000x. Currently using the Beoplay E8. Both are very good. WF-1000x after the latest 1.07 update minimized the right earbud disconnection problem. E8 pairing is a bitch. Took me 2 hours to figure out how to pair and I have used over 10 types of truly wireless earbuds and this have me scratching my head thinking if I got a lemon. Once pair the sound is really very good.

E8 currently is my favorite.

Have not tried Dash pro but have used Dash before. Dash has this background noise and is quite distracting. I have my eye on Dash pro but the price of $528 local warranty at weareready.sg is too expensive. Will wait awhile to see if the price will go down.
Does the E8 pairing give much difficulty in pairing every time or just because they have a different meridian other brands? I also usually don't read the manuals. I've heard in some reviews that the E's don't come with voice prompts which some may actually like to have.

After pairing connection is flawless. It is more like the pairing instruction is not clear.

Loving the E8. Been using for a week now and it's just really sleek looking. The sound is exciting!

If I'm using a Samsung S8, would you guys recommend me to get Sony WF-1000X or Samsung IconX 2018?

I've shortlisted to this 2, really unsure which to get, the reliability of the connection is a big factor for me, and probably I will use it for some runnings....

Based on this alone I would have chosen IconX already, but then some say the IconX sound sounds alot worse than Sony WF-1000x...

Ok my take. Sony WF-1000x good sound but SBC profile which S8 is using will give only 2 hours of playtime regardless NC on or off.

Gear Icon X 2017 playtime 5 hours SBC profile. Got sport coaching n heartbeat monitoring and also 4gb storage. Also now around $250+?

It seem that gear icon X 2017 is the more value one.

Hmm I assume you're talking about the new IconX 2018 since you are talking about 5 hours of playtime, compared to around 2 hours of playtime for the older model. The newer model also no more heartbeat monitoring from what I see, but the sports coaching are still there.

Thanks for your input, I see I can get the 2018 iconX at around 218, and I got 10 dollars of rebates on Lazada, definitely much cheaper than Sony.

should be 2017 I have the 2016 but they called it 2018.and I find the sound quality to be not too bad. Connection is good. 218 no need to think already.

One last question. Is the lag in video's audio very obvious and unbearable?

Not sure about 2018 icon x. 2017 I find it is very bearable. The worst video lag I have tried is from my ERATO Apollo 7.
