Note on static electricity

  • If you use the headset when the air is dry, you may experience discomfort due to static electricity accumulated on your body. This is not a malfunction of the headset. You can reduce the effect by wearing clothes made of natural materials that do not easily generate static electricity.

Notes on wearing the headset

  • After use, remove the headset from your ears slowly.
  • Because the headset achieves a tight seal over the ears, forcibly pressing it against your ears or quickly pulling it off can result in eardrum damage. When wearing the headset, the speaker diaphragm may produce a click sound. This is not a malfunction.

Other notes

  • When the volume is increased too much, sound may leak. Be careful not to bother others. As a guide, use at a volume that allows you to be called and answer even in a noisy place.
  • Do not subject the headset to excessive shock as it is a precision device.
  • Do not breathe into the driver unit.
  • Do not apply weight or pressure to the headset for long periods, including when it is stored, as it may cause deformation.
  • If you experience discomfort while using the headset, stop using it immediately.
  • The earpads may be damaged or deteriorate with long-term use and storage.
  • Be careful not to hit your eyes with the boom microphone when putting on, taking off or using the headset.
  • Earpads are consumables. If the earpads deteriorate or are damaged through long-term use and storage, contact your nearest Sony dealer.

Cleaning the headset

  • When the headset exterior is dirty, wipe it clean with a soft dry cloth. If the headset is particularly dirty, soak a cloth in diluted neutral detergent and wring it well before using it to clean the headset (excluding the earpads). Do not use solvents such as thinner, benzene, or alcohol, as they may damage the finish on the surface of the headset or cause other damages.

Keep the headset away from the magnetic card

  • The headset has magnets. If you bring a magnetic card close to the headset, the card magnet may be affected and become unusable.
