Every phone with Android 8 (or is it 7?) or higher. Sony released LDAC codec to Android.

In terms of sound quality, the PXC has a much more balanced sound that the Sony XM3 - they feel more open and you can hear all the frequencies. The Sonys are downright muddy in comparison on some tracks - once you EQ them though and drop the bass, they are a lot better. In terms of noise canceling the sonys wipe the floor with the PXC, it's not even a fair comparison. If you like any type of bass in your music, you'll likely enjoy the Sonys more.
The other difference is that the PXC can pair to multiple devices, the Sonys only par with one device at a time. They both have apps that allow you to customize the sound signature and the amount of noise cancellation.

Last, in terms of comfort, the sonys have bigger ear cups, the senns wrap right around your ears and get sweaty a tiny bit faster than the sonys.

Microsoft also just jumped in this area with the surface headphones, would love to hear those as well.

MKBHD had posted a couple of days ago that they were the best headphones he has ever owned.
Then a semi rammed into the side of his Tesla, so maybe no review of the headphones for a while.
