Using only one unit of the headset
You can remove one unit from the charging case and use it by itself.
In this case, only the unit that has been removed from the charging case will turn on.
When you put on the other unit of the headset
The connection between the left and right units is established automatically, and you will hear the music or other audio on both units of the headset.
About the voice guidance
When only one unit of the headset is worn on your ear, you will hear a voice guidance from that unit.
Some instances of the voice guidance can be heard only from the left unit when both the left and right units are worn on your ears. When only wearing the right unit on your ear, all instances of the voice guidance will be heard from the right unit.
Assigning functions to the touch sensors
Depending on the unit you are wearing, some functions may not be available in the factory setting. In this case, you can change the assignment of functions to the touch sensors using the “Sony | Headphones Connect” app.
The Google Assistant feature can be assigned to either the left or right unit of the headset.
When the Google Assistant feature is assigned to the headset and you want to use only one unit of the headset, use the unit with the Google Assistant feature assigned.
The Amazon Alexa feature can be assigned to either the left or right unit of the headset.
When the Amazon Alexa feature is assigned to the headset and you want to use only one unit of the headset, use the unit with the Amazon Alexa feature assigned.
- When you play music or other stereo audio while wearing only one unit, you will hear the sound of either left or right channel depending on the unit you are wearing. You cannot hear monaural sound with the left and right channels mixed.
