About volume operation (Only for countries/areas complying with European Directives)

An alarm (beep)* and warning [Check the volume level] are meant to protect your ears when you raise the volume setting beyond a specific level for the first time. You can cancel the alarm and warning by tapping [OK] button on the alert dialog.
* The alarm (beep) does not sound when connecting a Bluetooth audio device.
  • You can turn up the volume beyond the specific level after canceling the alarm and warning.

  • After the initial warning, the alarm and warning repeat for every 20 cumulative hours that the volume is set beyond the specific level; when this happens, the volume is changed to the initial setting automatically.

  • If the volume is set beyond the specific level and you turn off your Walkman, the volume returns to the specific level automatically.
