What is Ambient Sound Mode?
Ambient Sound Mode uses the microphones built into the headphones that support Ambient Sound Mode to allow you to hear ambient sound even while wearing headphones. Pay attention to the sounds around you to enjoy listening to music safely.
- Ambient Sound Mode allows you to hear ambient sound even while wearing headphones. However, note that this mode does not enable you to hear all sounds around you. Ambient sound may not be heard well depending on the surrounding environment, type of the music being played on your Walkman, or the volume level. Be very careful when using the headphones in places where an inability to hear ambient sound would be dangerous (such as on roads where there is car or bicycle traffic).
- Ambient Sound Mode may not function properly if you use the headphones with earbuds that do not fit your ears. Use earbuds of an appropriate size to fit your ears comfortably and snugly.
