While I really appreciate this app with nice UI it unfortunately seems to be riddled with bugs. See below my review using the app for Life Q30 headphones on iOS (I submitted these bugs to Anker as well, hoping they will respond).
Ambient Sound Modes:
ANC -> Transparency -> ANC
If I am in ANC (Indoor) mode and switch to Transparency by covering the right ear cup, and then switch from Transparency back to ANC (by covering my right ear cup again), headphones will switch to ANC, but this time the app will show ANC (Outdoor!) instead of Indoor. Why? Furthermore, under this condition, when I switch from Outdoor to Indoor inside the app, there is no audible change whatsoever between the two ANC modes. Only when I switch back again from Indoor to Outdoor: then I can hear a low frequency noise for a brief fraction of a second, which indicates that I’ve actually switched between Outdoor to Indoor.
Furthermore, if I am in ANC (Indoor) mode and I quit the Soundcore app and restart it, the app will open in ANC (OUTDOOR) mode by default, not Indoor as before I quit the app. And just in general, whenever I reconnect to Q30’s via the app it will always default in Outdoor mode.
Widget: it’s buggy. When I select Indoor in the widget and then open the Soundcore app, it will be selected as Outdoor in the app even though I selected Indoor in the widget. Similarly if I select Indoor in the app, it will appear as Outdoor in the widget! In short, if you select Indoor or Outdoor inside the app it will always be the opposite in the widget, and vice versa!
Another complaint is about Custom EQ profiles: if I have my own custom eq selected, when I quit and reopen the app or when I turn off and turn on the headphone to connect to the app , the app often generates a new Custom EQ profile with its OWN adjustments, often lowering some or all the bands by -1dB as compred with my custom eq. It’s really annoying that this happens, can you explain why?
Finally, something I wish they could implement: as Normal mode is slightly more bass heavy than the ANC mode, i wish they’d allow a different custom eq profile for each mode (i.e. one profile for Normal and one profile for ANC), and that the app would remember those profiles for each mode…
Are you also seeing these bugs?
