should be fix now,
You would need to check to make sure you get one of the newer batches.
Serial number start with 6xxxxxx

https://community.sony.co.uk/t5/portabl ... 59/page/22
So the ones that start with 5 can't be fixed? I bought mine in March and the serial number is a bit before 6

There were some pretty cold days in March but I can't remember if I used them on any of those days

I have these ($300 from baybloorradio with cheapo headphone trade in special) and the cold issue is usually resolved by turning it on in the cold. It re-calibrates the touchpad when you do this. Fixes it 95% of the time. Only other gripe is wet long hair also sets it off. These things are great otherwise.

I was just going by what I read on threads online but some people are saying later numbers in 5xxxx are also fixed

You were able to get a black one with the PSP price? Which store you went to? Want to get a black one with this price.

I owned these for just over a week. The biggest issue I had was support for multiple devices (sources). With my 3 year old bose Bluetooth headphones I can switch devices easily with the button on the side. With these sony’s I have to manually disconnect and connect to different devices each time (iPhone, iPad, tv).

Lots of information out there of people complaining of the same thing. Just thought I would mention it. This was a deal breaker for me since I like to watch something on my iPad during my commute on the train and switch to my phone easily for music / picking up a call.

I don't understand. why does everyone on RFG assume that everyone has PSP? As far as I can tell, PSP is only offered to businesses and through employee saving referral code. Assuming many of us aren't business owners. Are employee savings referral code that easy to obtain?

A search would've answered your question.
