Xperia Z5 Compact not using aptx with Sony wh 900n



I am having this problem only with these headphones, and they are Sony as well! It is only with them, I have tried other headphones with aptx, plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 and senheisser 4.50 HD, and I get the message "the connected device can support aptx". The connection with them is flawlessly. Whereas with the wh 900 I don't have it. I installed the Sony headphones app and it only allows you to use ldac or Sbc. Apparently, this phone is not going to get Oreo so I am stuck.

I already asked Sony support and they said aptx is not supported in these headphones when it is even in the model white paper.

Any help will be appreciated.

I meant that the phone model supports aptx according to the white paper as well, the headphones supports aptx and aptx HD.
