Listening to ambient sound quickly (Quick Attention Mode)

This function lowers the volume of the audio being played (game audio, music, call audio, ringtones) to allow ambient sound to be easily heard. The Quick Attention Mode is useful for quickly listening to train announcements, etc.

To activate the Quick Attention Mode

  • On “INZONE Hub” or the “Sony | Headphones Connect” app, change the function of either the left or right headset unit to [Custom], and set [Quick Attention] for [Long Press]. Hold your finger to the touch sensor on the headset unit to which you assigned the function. The Quick Attention Mode is activated only when you are touching the touch sensor.

To deactivate the Quick Attention Mode

Release your finger from the touch sensor.

About the instruction manual video

Watch the video for how to use the Quick Attention Mode.


  • Depending on the ambient conditions and the type/volume of audio playback, ambient sounds may not be heard even when using the Quick Attention Mode. Do not use the headset in places where it would be dangerous if you are unable to hear ambient sounds, such as on a road with car and bicycle traffic.
  • If the headset is not being worn properly in your ears, the Quick Attention Mode may not work correctly. Twist the headset to put it into your ears properly.
  • Depending on the size of the earbud tips you use, the Quick Attention Mode may not be fully effective. Choose the size that allows you to hear the least ambient sounds.
