Listening to ambient sound quickly (Quick Attention Mode)

This function turns down music, call sounds, and the ringtone to allow ambient sound to be easily heard. It is useful when you want to listen to train announcements, etc.

To activate the Quick Attention Mode

Hold your finger to the touch sensor on the left unit. 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.


  • Depending on the ambient condition and the type/volume of audio playback, the ambient sounds may not be heard even when using 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 worn properly, the Quick Attention Mode may not work correctly. Twist the headset to slide the earbud deep into your ear.

  • Depending on the type and size of the earbuds you use, the Quick Attention Mode may not be fully effective. Choose earbuds that allow you to hear the least ambient sounds.
