Hello support team, I have just acquired a pair of SONY WH-1000XM4 Bluetooth headphones.
I was initially going to acquire the previous version, SONY WH-1000XM3 as it is Bluetooth 4.2 and above all supporting the Aptx HD codec.
But the new version, WH-10000XM4, was proposed with a nice discount and since it is now Bluetooth 5.0, I thought it was going to be an even better acquisition to pair with my Bluesound node 2i... but in fact I have just discovered this new version WH-1000XM44 is no longer proposing the Aptx HD codec contrary to its predecessor... which is why I am contacting you.
The WH-1000XM4 is “only” supporting the following codecs: LDAC (which is great but as far as I know, not supported by the Bluesound node 2i, right?), SBC, and AAC.
Therefore, does it mean that the sound quality I will get from that great pair of headphones through the Bluesound node 2i will “only” be via the SBC codec basically, which would be very disappointing obviously ?
Or is there hopefully a kind of upscaling anyway that equals at least Aptx HD sound quality via the Node 2i ?
Thanks a lot for your feedback on this. I can still exchange it with the previous M3 version I guess if better for the sound quality with the Bluesound node 2i (and even if “only” Bluetooth 4.2).
