PSA: Don't update your Sony WH-1000XM2 and WI-1000X headphones, faulty firmware is at large
Hey, remember that a few months ago Sony disclosed which ones of its earbuds and headphones are getting the Google Assistant via a software  update?

The gadgets in questions were the tongue-twisting WF-1000X, WI-1000X, WH-1000XM2, WH-CH700N, WH-CH900N, and the H.ear on 2 WH-H900N. It seems that just yesterday the WH-1000XM2 and WI-1000X began receiving an over-the-air update bringing the 2.0.0 firmware update with Google Assistant on board, and while all should have been fine and dandy, multiple user reports on Reddit tell a harrowing tale of 'bricked' headphones that no longer function.

Of course, the culprit is clear - Sony's latest firmware, which seemingly has seeped through the quality control checks.



Sony has pulled down the firmware following the reports, but still, be extra careful if you don any of the pairs listed above. Be extra careful and try to double-check multiple sources if it's okay to update your devices. 




For now, we'd advise you to hold off on updating and give Sony the necessary time to iron out the game-breaking issues.
