About wide area tap

Wide area tap is a function that detects vibration around the ears with the acceleration sensors that are built into the headset and determines the tap operations.

By tapping not only the headset unit but also the areas around the ears where the headset is worn, you can perform various operations such as music playback or phone calls.


The range in which the headset can detect tap operations is from around the tragus to the lower side and sideburn.

When tapping, use your forefinger to perform a harder tap within the tap detection area.

Hint

  • In addition to tapping around your ear, tap operations are detected when you tap the headset unit.
  • If the tap operations cannot be easily detected, tap a little harder while adjusting the tap position.
  • When tapping the headset or in the area near your ear 2 or 3 times, tap it quickly with an interval of about 0.2 seconds between taps.
  • You can change the function assignments to the left and right units of the headset using the “Sony | Headphones Connect” app.

Note

  • When the headset is not worn in your ears, tap operations cannot be detected.
  • The headset may not operate correctly when a vibration identical to a tap is detected from coughing or the attachment/detachment of accessories around the ears, etc. When the headset reacts incorrectly, use the “Sony | Headphones Connect” app to turn wide area tap off and switch to headset tap.
