Headphones and earpads

On headphones

  • Be sure to match the right and left side of the headphones with your ears.

  • When the volume is too high, the sound leaks outside the headphones. Be careful not to raise the volume so high that it bothers people around you. There is a tendency to raise the volume when using in noisy places. However, for reasons of safety, it is advised to keep the volume at a level whereby you can still hear sounds around you.

  • The earpads may deteriorate due to long term storage or use.

On the built-in rechargeable battery of the headphones

  • Charge the battery in an ambient temperature of between 5 °C and 35 °C (between 41 °F and 95 °F). If you charge it outside the recommended temperature range, the charge indicator flashes and the battery may not be charged.

  • If you store the headphones for more than a year, charge the battery once a year to prevent over-discharge.

  • If the length of time you can use the headphones became extremely short, the rechargeable battery should be replaced with a new one. Please contact your nearest Sony dealer for a battery replacement.

On replacing the earpads

If the earpads become dirty or worn out, please contact your nearest Sony dealer for a replacement. The earpads are not intended to be replaced by the user.
