Received it and tested over a week. Found a few issues and i am contacting support about it
  1. Unit cuts out randomly on Windows PC. I can be listening and randomly the unit will switch off with an audible beep cue. The video or audio source etc will continue playing on the machine,. Tested on a PC, laptop and different bluetooth connection and issue remains.
  2. Sound on Windows machine is ..average . Checking with a Sennheiser , a "gaming"unit Kingston Hyper X connected thru USB and the DROP is ok but not better. I have preordered a Sony MX1000 series 4 and have a version 3 and the Sony has better Bluetooth connectivity and sound to my ears.

Your first point sounds like it's probably some power saving setting on windows. It would be nice it Drop could fix it, but it may not be their bug to fix, in which case maybe they could point users in the right direction? To your second point, it sounds like you're still referring to bluetooth on windows? If that's the case, windows' bluetooth codec support is well known to be pretty bad. Try using USB-C to pipe the audio instead of bluetooth and see if that changes your opinion on the sound. If it does, and you want to use the headphones wirelessly on PC, you'll want to buy a third party transmitter that supports aptx-HD and/or LDAC (much more uncommon/expensive). You're in trouble if you want to game with them wirelessly though, since they're supposed to support the newest aptx low latency mode, but it sounds like that standard isn't hammered out yet so there aren't actually any transmitters on the market. Maybe it supports aptx-LL (low latency) but I haven't heard any confirmations, and it sounded like the opposite is true. Your best bet will be to use these wired if it's for gaming, at least for now.
