    The sound is pretty good.
    Is it this model that had the issue with the headband being naff / fragile? If so, maybe a refurbished pair might be better as they may have fixed the problem!
    Anyone know if Sony ever fixed the headband issue? As in, after a repair has anyone reported the issue not reoccuring? The sound is brilliant but even at £180 I'd avoid these if the headband is a ticking time bomb.
    Really tempted but I gather Sony will just fob you off if the headband breaks. Probably even moreso for refurbs, I’d guess.

    No. This is the model that had the problem.
    Avoid and go for the newer model despite the cost.
    Proprietary LDAC HQ audio rather than supporting AptX standard - typical Sony

    LDAC is available at a cost and why would an OEM pay Sony to support only Sony LDAC supported products. Sure there's a cost for Aptx but it's supported by a quite a number of audio manufacturers.
    The only way for LDAC to go forward is to make the standard freely available to audio manufacturers thus creating a demand for it being fully implemented on phones etc.

    Spot on - Looked like new
    Wasn't the headband issue only affecting certain serial numbers? I read somewhere that it was 2 specific ones and the others were fine

    Holding out for a new pair below £200 as I'm tired of shoving ear buds into my ear canals
