I received my Xpand X105-IR-X1 last week and I would like to thank you, Lanky, for your advice and feedback which were very useful. My observations:
1. Ghosting (crosstalk) is significantly reduced (almost not detectable on film content) when compared to the original Sony glasses that came with the projector. Using the Spears & Munsil Blu-ray Disc for testing proved that the latter are virtually disastrous.
2. After two hours of watching, the Xpand glasses did not bother my nose as they are lighter and have better nose pads. Also, their temples are not as tight as those of Sony’s. I could not wear the Sony glasses for more than half an hour without being bothered by them.
3. They sync quickly and don’t lose sync even if I go to the next room (close to the door, with the door open).
The one (small) drawback is that the frame of the Xpand glasses is rather narrow and they tend to stay close to the face (due to the curved temples pulling them up) hence getting the lenses dirty from the eyebrows.
The battery was completely depleted when the glasses arrived, so I had to charge them. They charged fully in 1-1/2 hours. I do not know how long the battery will last on a single charge but the instructions specify “more than 40 hours", which is great.
Overall, a great experience with the new Xpand glasses. Thank you, again.

3. They detect the projector far faster than the older xpands (I'd have to reset what projector I'm using with the older xpands if they lost all charge)
Anecdotally, I haven't noticed ghosting being a problem, but I don't recall really seeing that much with the older glasses either. I feel like when I tilted my head some with the older Xpands and the Sony glasses sometimes the color would distort a bit. Haven't seen that with the new glasses.
