Hey everybody! I have a question about this thing. So while I am STILL WAITING FOR THE SHIPMENT FFS could anybody tell me please if they are going to be an upgrade from my Sennheiser RS 185 RF? I afraid they can end up being not just a lateral move but straight up a downgrade. Here are some facts and concerns: 1 - I am not going to use them with anything but my PC 2 - Pandas seem to be not as comfortable 3 - I prefer open back headphones but it is not a dealbraker 4 - I game a lot and never had any latency issues with RS 185 RF how about pandass? 5 - I don't even know if they sound any better than my sennheisers. Thank you for your time!

I don't have my Panda headphones yet but I'm coming from the RS 165 and can make some educated guesses. The Panda's are twice as heavy as the RS 185 so I think that will impact comfort. Panda is closed back compared to open back on the RS 185 so the Panda soundstage is going to be narrower but probably have clearer bass. Sennheiser uses their own wireless protocol which is pretty low latency (internet says it's ~50ms). At the moment, Panda will be worse. The normal Bluetooth protocols have a lot of latency, 200+ ms so you need to use a special low latency transmitter but that is a mess right now on the Panda. The current firmware only supports aptX Adaptive which is ~50 to 80ms which was designed to replace aptX-LL but I haven't found any transmitters that transmit it. Still too new. I would love for Drop to make one. @Will has stated that Qualcomm's preproduction SDK supported the older aptX Low Latency (~40ms) for the new Bluetooth chip they chose but Qualcomm took it out of the final version. That's why some Panda reviewers said aptX-LL was working for them. Will shared he was hopeful that aptX-LL would be included in a future Qualcomm SDK so they could include it in their firmware, but that it wasn't sure thing and would refund people if LL was deal breaker. Unless you are ok using them wired using USB-C, I'm really not confident the Panda's will meet your wishes at this time.

Thanks for response! Looks like I am stuck with my RS185 for while which is actually not a bad thing.

Really Dissapointed in The Nuforce MOVE Bluetooth Earbuds
I received the MOVE earbuds today. The packaging was ok but nothing compared to some of their competition. I was not able to pair the buds with my Samsung Z-Fold 3 phone, so I tried my M1 MacMini. That paired immediately. There are no instructions in the box, so I went on Google and found everything I could, There is also no app. I got them to work right away. The sound is like it is not in my ear. the volume is VERY low and I thought that maybe I needed a different tip, so the bass could increase. .....I have gone a little crazy this year purchasing 23 pairs, all under $75.00 It is amazing what you can get for around $50 these days. I do not need to insult Nuforce, by listing 10 others on my desk, that are worlds better than these. I just put in larger tips and it helped the sound greatly,but the volume is really low. The sound is now more balanced and sounds much more like it should , but still, I have NO IDEA why DROP, who I LOVE, would bother with these..They do not need...

PC38X microphone volume too low
How can I increase the volume of the microphone of my PC38X? On my new Lenovo X1 extreme with Windows 11 the sound for my listeners is too low and I've tried everything available on Windows 11 and related drivers for the Realtek Audio 'card'. I've found a way to boost the volume using Sonar of the Steelseries GG Software. What other options would you advice me?
