WH-ch700 vs Sennheiser Momentum 4 5/5
By Tbone F
I had such a hard time deciding whether to get a set of the Sony 1000xm5 or the Sennheiser Momentum 4. But through all the YouTube review videos and the talk of how much the better the Sennheiser sound and the double the battery life I finally chose the Momentum 4s. I did get them renewed on Amazon for $239.00. Well I couldn’t wait to hear them. I wanted to replace my old Sony Wh-ch700 Sonys only because they’ve taken a beating for 5/6 years and one side often pops apart on the track but I can pop them back together. To me, the Sennheiser had no volume and didn’t sound all that impressive. I put my Sony ch700s on to compare and to my surprise I found they sound better to my ears. More bass with the clear bass turned up to 9 and much more volume! Yes they don’t have better anc then the Sennheiser or touch response but the Sennheiser are very glitchy! Loads of cool features but what good are they if they only work sometimes. The app and the touch response was very quirky and glitchy which was mentioned in the reviews but not to this extent. So I’m returning them and I’m gonna get Sony 1000xm4 or xm5s. I heard the xm4s sound better. People tend to forget, all the fancy features are really cool but not at the expense of sound quality. They are mounted on your ears to LISTEN to music or movies…, I’ll stick with the Sony’s. They have always been the best ever since the Sony Walkman came out when it comes to sound quality out of the headphones! Plus I look forward to the improvement of the noise cancelation which has always impressed me from my ch700s and they are said not to compare to the 1000xm series. Keep up the good work Sony!
Headphones won’t connect 3/5
By uh idk 79
The overall app isn’t that bad but my headphones aren’t connecting and I already followed the steps you’re supposed to if this happens
Don’t bother. Crashes on iPhone upon launch.
Update makes speak to chat disable reset every connection 1/5
Head phones are almost unusable now. Speak to chat re enables every connection
Ungodly annoying 1/5
STOP CHANGING MY SETTINGS WHEN SOFTWARE UPDATES.
I never, ever, ever EVER want noise canceling to turn of when it hears talking. STOP TURNING IT BACK ON
Decent app 4/5
The app works fine I just wish you guys would make a widget for this app since you can’t choose your own touch controls for the buds
Obnoxious app 1/5
By Erik erik erik
Before I couldn’t even start using the app there were 10-15 screens with random questions left and right all in the name of “personalization” with no ability to skip. I deleted the app faster than I downloaded it, stay away.
I can’t even open this app 1/5
What the heck is this Sony? At least make your app work and have a better UI?!
Opens phantom music apps 1/5
I will be wearing my Sony WF-1000xm4 earbuds and I will touch them to adjust the fit, and whatever I’m currently listening to will stop playing and the earbuds will start playing the last thing I listened to an hour or two ago.
I’ll be watching a youtube video. I touch my earbud. The video stops and instead a song from youtube music or a podcast that I was listening to previously will start playing instead. The music app that randomly starts has been closed for hours, swiped off my screen and everything, but these earbuds will hijack my video to play something I did not ask them to play.

Over engineered garbage 1/5
Serious pathetic over engineered garbage app.
So many useless functions and poor detection . Then when you change anything it will cause havoc . Especially functions such as turn off when removed or changing left right touch . So much garbage controls Maybe works better on android or Xperia ?Just use the default handset controls!
Customizable buttons…aren’t 1/5
The hardware is great. My Sony WH1000-XM5 headphones are outstanding, with one, glaring exception. No mute button.
I was hopeful that the customizable buttons via this app would allow for a mute function. Sadly, no. The only option for the two programmable buttons is Spotify. The lack of options in the app make a great set of headphones pretty much useless for folks who want to use them in a home office scenario.
Seems like a fairly easy software update could be employed to retain customers.
Needs polish 4/5
1) the "quick attention" action should pause playback
2) the text in the app still needs to be improved; right now it looks like it was badly translated from a different language
Useless application 1/5
The app isn’t in the apple store so I can’t connect to them.
App Has Issues 4/5
Sometimes the app will not connect to my headphones and I have to restart the app and/or the headphones, and sometimes I just have to try again after waiting a while. But, overall the app works fine. I just wish there was a way to make sure the Speak-to-chat mode would stop turning itself on. I don’t like that mode, but it keeps turning itself back on and I’m not sure why.
New Design is Terrible 1/5
The app functionality isn’t bad but the new design is ugly as all heck. Revert it back and I’ll give a better rating.
Never works 1/5
Perfect for using with social interaction 4/5
Crisp sound honestly took me time to figure how to work my linkbuds S but the sound is awesome also I can use these headphones while talking with people it’s perfect sound would be dope if it ANC
Unable to sign in 2/5
The sign-in page popped up when I tried to sign in in the app displayed “You may close this page if it does not close automatically”, but I’m not actually signed in. It’s need few months, please fix it.
SONY WH-XB910N 5/5
I am a bass player and I love to here the boom while listening to my music. I love this about these headphones, plus the fact that I can adjust the EQ to give me the fullness of sound. I highly recommend these headphones.
Connection drops with browser based streams 3/5
So, I see this problem of connection terminating actively when playing through an app that’s not in the “audio” category. So, it happens on YouTube on Safari etc.
NOT for video conference. Can’t recommend. 1/5
There is no mute button on the XM5. And this app is crap. I spent a week trying to figure out how it works and why features existed. Felt like I was using a VCR from 1985 and may have been created by the same design team.
The headphones are awesome but the experience is awful. Every time I touched them my audio got cut off in my zoom calls. I feel like I need a week long training to learn to use them properly. Thats awful for a pair of headphones.
I will return my headphones and get something more reliable, and more “turn-key”.
terribly inconsistent 2/5
app is trash. wont connect have the time and need to delete/install to get to work. makes me want to just buy an apple.
Idk why everyone hate it 5/5
By Larbi Dali
Pretty solid 2 me. I got the wf-1000xm3s and the eq makes sound way better. Follow @larbioca on SoundCloud.
Not working 1/5
Won’t connect to my xm4s after the latest update. They also started to make a strange chime noise and I have no clue what it is and why it’s happening.
These headphones sounds great. I think they are well worth the money.
No connection… 1/5
By cass jeon
The app has been mostly useless to me and makes it more difficult to use otherwise good headphones, because the app can never connect to my headphones and just ends up confusing/frustrating me even if my headphones are working fine. this apps existence just causes stress and confusion in my experience 😔
So glitchy 1/5
I keep everything updated and these headphones/this app are so glitchy and often have trouble connecting.
Honestly looking to upgrade my headphones to a more reliable brand
Head phones 5/5
Never had a pair of headphones with so many options of sound control. I highly recommend these phones !!!
Not working in Kazakhstan 1/5
By Роман Педешный
Simply cannot start - white screen
Last update 1/5
After the last update m4 is bad
Suffering from many problems
Not as good as I expected 1/5
Very disappointed with the lack of volume and bass and treble. Will definitely return these back
Horrible app 1/5
By Lil Nuks
Don’t get me wrong, I love the headphones but I don’t understand how company can do so many complicated things but they can’t even get an app to work. I can have my headphones connected to my phone playing music but the app will still say I’m not connected. If I press connect, nothing happens and I’m just stuck at the Home Screen unable to get in. If by some miracle I actually do get in the app, I’m not allowed to even swipe off the app for a second because if I do, then the app says I’m no longer connected and I have to go through the whole process over again. The Alexa app basically can’t do anything except tell me the weather on the headphones because the connection between the app and Alexa is garbage and I can’t even connect to 2 devices without the app crashing and completely blocking out the audio from one of the devices. Frustrating and extremely confused on how such great headphones can have such a terrible app. Just disappointed
App keep crashing on my phone 1/5
Uninstalled and reinstalled about a half dozen times over the course of a few weeks and after I get through all the licensing info and R&D’ sit crashes the app and cannot re-load.
Software constant resetting 3/5
No matter how many times I disable speak to chat, ambient controls, dual sync, it still does it. Why can’t nice headphones not be so intertwined with bad software?
Voice Assistant 1/5
By Foobardo iVar
I hate hearing the voice assistant on the WH-1000XM4 and this app won’t disable it.
How many times do I need to be reminded to charge the battery when it is low? I’m not stupid. Won’t ever buy Sony headphones again.
Constantly connects to the wrong device 2/5
The functionality of switching which device your headphones are connected to is impressive, but somehow the app always switches my headphones to the one that I’m not actively using. I try to join a meeting on my computer and the connection immediately switches to my phone. If i try to take a call on my phone with the headphones connected, it switches to my computer. It’s incredibly frustrating and makes me think no app would be an improvement.
Biometrics collection 1/5
has potential, but has a ways to go. 3/5
By CLA$$Y KENNY
the app is okay. there’s still a bug that makes it to were audio from a different source would start playing/ continue playback if you allow your phone to miss a call.ex after the phone stops ringing, the headphones will automatically play audio from my desktop google chrome even if i have no audio playing on my pc.
This app barely works? 1/5
It registers my headphones once and then doesn’t work. When it does work - it crashes! Useless!
Totally failure 1/5
This is a totally failure to download an app for using a headphone. I do not care of music quality. Just give me a noise canceling phone for meetings in office. And I have 3 devices to have meetings and I need to download an app to connect to two devices. This is totally useless. Now I have to buy another AirPods to just get an earphone that could connect to my iPhone, iPad and iMac without a useless app. Just for making phone calls!
Not the best at remembering settings 4/5
Mostly the app is good. Especially when many specific apps for hardware (wemo, smartlife etc) are garbage, somy has made one thats fine and good. My one complaint is it does not do a good job of remembering my settings. The “speak to chat” gets turned back on at seemingly random times and I always have to go back in and switch it off.
App not connecting 1/5
App continues to fail to connect when opening. Needs to be an update to fix this bug. Can’t control any functions of my headphones since app fails to open. Please fix and address immediately
it’s a little iffy but it is an amazing app
Sounds good 5/5
By Tiernan C.
Easy to make EQs
Why is the wh-ch510 not supported? 3/5
This makes me mad
Leather boot for the ear has come unglued on both ears. Can I repair this? 3/5
Great sound and range but the leather boot for the ear has come unglued on both ears. Can I repair this?
W app 5/5
W app indeed
Unable to connect XM3 to Iphone 14 1/5
I used to have a 12 pro which worked flawlessly with these headphones. As soon as I upgraded to the iphone 14 pro, the bluetooth is unable to detect them.
