Not, is not better than aptx. This is a very bad news if it is true…

Chipset decision. Some don’t have, some do. Likely the successor will have so a buy now or wait decision based on how important.

Is APTX really important ? maybe they have some other improvements or drivers to give more better sound ?

The average user isn’t concerned and shouldn’t be concerned about which codec is used for these new buds considering iphones don’t support aptx and thats more than half of the smartphones you see nowadays. Anyone looking for aptx should be looking at other brands.

aptX is important if you use android device with Qualcom chip that supports aptX. If you use Apple device or computer running Windows it will not work anyway.

You cannot have high quality sound with high compressed data over sbc/aac, no matter how good are drivers. And if you listen to an already high compressed audio format like mp3, sound quality will be worst. From at last 3 years ago all android high entry and some medium entry has Aptx over bluetooth. This is a downgrade compared with Liberty Air 2 which support sbc, aac and aptx.

They sound better than LA2 despite the lack of aptX. This is tested on both Android and iOS. No matter what I say, the spec and codec snobs will say otherwise.

You could stop calling names “snobs” and back with objective evidence? Burden of proof falls on those making a claim.

Claim is LA2P sound better than LA2. You clearly feel this is true, codec aside. So how to prove. Objectively?

I have a DAP that supports up to aptX-HD, so I would want to know if this is fixable via software. If it is not fixable, I don’t understand why they didn’t put that there in the first place?
Also, is it possible to use aptX/HD on a device that can transmit over that codec with a pair of headphones that don’t support it?

Will be checking out the review, saw the thumbnail on Twitter w/ custom logo… big ups and congrats!

The specific codec doesn’t matter as much (at least for me). aptX, LDAC, LHDC, or LLAC is good.

Razor I’m just a regular guy who loves audio but id strongly disagree with your comment as out of all the revuews I watch and all the products I’ve trued no one speaks more honesty amd is spot on with these products as el jefe … not one review of a product he’s done that I’ve tried that I would disagree with him on… he… just doin life… and oluvs gadgets are in my opinion the 3 best doin reviews… flossy is good too and I especially miss Jim’s review room but again el jefe is the real deal in my opinion

Also, I find it odd that the L2As, the L2Ps, and the LP2s all have aptX but the LA2Ps don’t.

Looks to be a good discussion. I would say instead of guessing why, it could be something that could be asked. Maybe. :wink: .

Appreciate the input. It seems weird to take the specs down for the new release, but if it doesn’t make an audible difference that is less of an issue.
