  • In the factory settings, when you listen to music while wearing both units of the headset, the headset will pause music playback if one or both units are removed. When you put the removed headset unit into your ear again, the headset will resume music playback.
  • The headset supports SCMS-T content protection. You can enjoy music and other audio on the headset from a device such as a portable TV that supports SCMS-T content protection.
  • Depending on the Bluetooth device, it may be necessary to adjust the volume or set the audio output setting on the device.
  • The headset volume during a call and during music playback can be independently adjusted. Changing the call volume does not change the volume of music playback and vice versa.
  • You can also listen to music by removing only one unit from the charging case and putting it into your ear.
    When you are listening to music with only one unit, if you put the other unit into the other ear, you can listen to music with both units.


  • In the factory settings, you cannot adjust the volume on the headset. Adjust the volume on the connected device. If you are unable to adjust the volume on the connected device, install the “Sony | Headphones Connect” smartphone app and adjust the volume in the app.
  • If the communication condition is poor, the Bluetooth device may react incorrectly to the operation on the headset.
