    Sony WF-1000MX3 first impressions...
    Sound: It sounds alright. Bass is a little lacking stock but with the app EQ set to bass boost, it's becomes decently punchy without overwhelming mids (just) and without sounding muddy or uncontrolled. Actually, the sound signature does remind me of my COPs. Mids are alright and highs are alright again. Nothing bad but nothing to write home about either. The soundstage is actually somewhat wide for IEMs. 
    ANC: Seems to work alright. Comparing to my DC One-Xes (top three alongside Zulus and Bose A20s for ANR in aviation) in my room, my aviation headset reduces noticeably more noise however, they aren't bad. 
    Comfort: This is gonna be a bit iffy. It's fine if I carefully slot them into my ears but it doesn't feel secure. I need to twist it a little, which makes them feel secure but puts quite a bit of pressure on a bit of my ears, which after a hour or two I can see becoming very uncomfortable. I guess it's passable. 
    Build: Compared to my current wireless earbuds (some cheapo TWS-B6s), the actual earbuds are much nicer feeling however, the case feels much, much, much cheaper. I think the issue is the lid with the WFs. It's hollow and plasticky, which as you will need to touch it to open the case, it's just not very nice. 
    Other notes: It's about 1/3rd bigger than the TWS-B6 case, which isn't ideal tbh. 
     
    Conclusion: Comfort is a lil iffy, sounds decent (albeit it's tuned surprisingly neutral for Sony ear/headphones) and ANR works decently (been spoilt by high end aviation headsets, costing £700+). The case is a little cheap feeling and is quite large. However, as my plans were to use em for commercial flights, I think I can give them a passing grade and keep em  

    @Den-Fi Here's a very brief overview. Overall, if I bought em at MSRP (£230) I'd probably not keep em but at £163, I think they are good enough to justify the price. I'll test em in an actually loud environment (i.e. next time I go flying, in a GA aeroplane) and see how the ANR handles that.

    I've lately been finding the cable that came with my FiiO FH5 quite short and tugs at my chin, so I thought it might be cute to get the cable that came with my Tin HiFi T2 since those are a bit longer, allowing some more sag when I'm using my FH5 at my desk.
     
    It feels quite exotic using flagship in-ear monitors with a budget cable, but I'm not sure sound quality will be noticeably affected in any way.

    Little bit surprised AMD hasn't outright declined my warranty request claim for the 2700X. Instead they're asking me to provide system info and making sure I've tried everything. I figured if it wasn't under warranty anymore, they would have said so right away, but they haven't. Fingers crossed they will replace it...
     
    The seller on Aliexpress, who I bought the chip from, had good reviews and customer feedback (97%) and they state in the description to contact them if there is any issues before leaving a negative review, yet hey haven't responded to my messages or even read them thus far... Not looking good for them. Though I do realize the Coronavirus situation in China could be affecting this.
     
    Come on, AMD, a happy customer is a repeat customer.
