When attaching and removing the headset

In the factory setting, the built-in proximity sensor in the left unit and the built-in acceleration sensors in each of the left and right units detect when the headset is attached to or removed from your ears, and the headset automatically controls the touch sensor control panel’s operation, powering off, pausing music playback, etc. (Wearing detection).


When the headset is worn

  • The indicator next to the (power) button turns off.
  • You can use the touch sensor control panel of the headset to play music, make and receive calls, etc.

When the headset is removed

  • When you listen to music while wearing the headset on your ears, the headset will pause music playback automatically if the headset is removed. When the headset is worn again, the headset resumes music playback.
  • In order to save the battery, the headset will automatically turn off after 15 minutes of not being worn.
  • In order to prevent the headset from reacting incorrectly, music playback, making and receiving calls, and other operations cannot be performed when the headset is removed, even if you tap the touch sensor control panel.
  • When you are talking on the headset while wearing the headset on your ears, the call is automatically switched to the smartphone or mobile phone if the headset is removed. When you put the headset on your ears again, the call is switched to the headset.

Hint

  • By using the “Sony | Headphones Connect” app, you can change the settings of the wearing detection automatic music playback pause and resume function and the wearing detection automatic power off function (the battery saving function).
