External monitor Audio settings

You can monitor or live stream the sound input from either a connected external device, such as a camera, or the microphone of your Xperia device.

To monitor or live stream the sound input from a connected external device, connect it using a USB 2.0 High Speed cable (A). If you connect the external device using a USB 3.0 Super Speed cable (B), you can monitor or live stream only the sound input from the microphone of your Xperia device or the external microphone connected to your Xperia device. When connecting an external microphone to your Xperia device, connect to the 3.5 mm audio jack.

Hint

  • With some cameras manufactured by Sony, if you set the resolution for USB streaming to 720p on the camera and then connect it to your Xperia device, you can monitor or live stream the sound input from the camera. For more information about whether your camera supports this function and specific settings, refer to the Help Guide for the camera.
