  • Yeh I think so but you might want to double check before you open. I might be wrong and Amazon’s return policy may apply to all.

  • I'm picking up some Sony xm3s tomorrow to use in the office. Does anyone know if I can connect to two devices at the same time? Ideally I'd like listen to music on my phone and answer calls but also answer calls from my workphone. I've searched the Internet but the Sony support forums are full people answering questions that have never been asked.

  • Yeah I'll double check. Seems pretty crazy if you can't test something like sound quality on something that's primary function is sound!

  • Sorry, yes, fulfilled by Amazon is fine. It just has to come from an Amazon warehouse, basically.

  • 50% off some Master & Dynamic models here for Cyber Monday:

  • Thanks, I think I will skip them though. Damn Amazon... Down here in aus I'm getting $37 plus $59 shipping hahaha, no thanks. Will have to go for trusty sennheiser again.

  • Pretty sure the Sony's only allow one connection

  • That's disappointing.

  • Seems pretty crazy if you can't test something like sound quality on something that's primary function is sound!

    I don't agree with 'pretty crazy'.
    In ears are intimate items, personally I would refuse to purchase an item with someone else's ear gunk on it. Once tried and returned, the earphones would have to go in the bin. Not great for the environment.

    As for getting an idea of sound quality.... there is a reason why a thread about ear phones on a cycling forum has 80+ pages.

  • If one is so poor that it's not worth the money then sure. But buying 5 and returning all but your favourite isn't the same as buying something and returning it if it's shit.
    If four were 8/10 and the one you chose was 9/10 then I expect the retailer would feel fairly hard done by to get 4 pretty great pairs back that could only be sold as used (or written off if cheap)
