This article tries to favor Apple over Sony. The WF1000xm4 offers more than the APP2. Apple hasn't even thought to touch their codes, Sony supports LDAC. Apple offers AAC. The only thing the APP2 can beat Sony in is comfort. That's it.

The features like ear scanning, spacial audio have been implemented long ago by Sony. When the paragraph says the Sony is better at sound quality, the result gives Apple the win.

Then the biggest thing that isn’t mentioned is that if using the AirPods with an android device nearly all of the features are unavailable. Btw if anyone thinks I’m an android fanboy, I’m typing this on my iPhone…
