    Automatic AI Noise
    Canceling
    The Automatic AI Noise Canceling function constantly
    analyzes environmental ambient sound components and
    automatically selects the most effective noise canceling
    mode.
    Noise canceling mode types
    NC Mode A: Noise mainly in an airplane is effectively
    reduced.
    NC Mode B: Noise mainly in a bus or a train is effectively
    reduced.
    NC Mode C: Noise mainly found in an office environment
    (PC, copier, air ventilation, etc.) is effectively
    reduced.
    Tips
    When the headphones are turned on, NC Mode A is set.
    It may take a few seconds to analyze the environmental
    ambient sound.
    Notes on use
    What is noise canceling?
    The noise canceling circuit actually senses outside noise
    with built-in microphones and sends an equal-but-opposite
    canceling signal to the headphones.
    Notes on the noise canceling function
    Adjust the earpads so that they cover your ears, otherwise
    noise canceling will not function properly.
    The noise canceling effect may vary depending on how
    you wear the headphones.
    Do not cover the microphone of the headphones with
    your hands. The noise canceling function may not work
    properly.
    Microphone
    After you turn on the power of the headphones, you may
    hear a slight hiss. This is the operating sound of the noise
    canceling function, not a malfunction.
    The noise canceling function works for noise in the low
    frequency band primarily. Although noise is reduced, it is
    not canceled completely.
    The noise canceling effect may not be pronounced in a
    very quiet environment, or some noise may be heard.
    When you use the headphones in a train or a car, noise
    may occur depending on street conditions.
    Howling may occur if you do not wear the headphones
    correctly.
    Howling may occur if you place an object such as finger
    close to inside of the headphones. Keep it away from the
    headphones.
    Mobile phones may cause interference and noise. Should
    this occur, locate the headphones further away from the
    mobile phone.
    Notes on using on the airplane
    Do not use the headphones when use of electronic
    equipment is prohibited or when use of personal
    headphones for in-flight entertainment services is
    prohibited.
    Notes on charging the headphones
    Charge the headphones using the supplied micro-USB
    cable. Otherwise, it may cause a malfunction.
    Charge in an environmental temperature of between 5°C
    and 40°C. Otherwise, the battery may not fully charge.
    If you haven’t used the headphones for a long time,
    the life of the rechargeable battery may become short.
    This will improve when you repeat the charging and
    discharging process several times.
    Do not store the headphones in hot places for a long time.
    When storing it for more than a year, charge the battery
    once a year to prevent over discharge.
    For system requirements for a computer that can charge
    the battery using USB, see “System requirements for
    battery charge using USB”.
    If you recharge the headphones by connecting to an AC
    outlet, use the separately-sold USB AC Adaptor specific in
    “Recommended accessory (sold separately)”. For details,
    refer to the operating instructions supplied with the
    adaptor.
    If the headphones are malfunctioning, charging will not
    start and the charging indicator will blink. In this case,
    disconnect the unit from the connected device, and
    consult your place of purchase, or a Sony dealer.
    Notes on handling
    Because the headphones are designed to fit closely in your
    ears, forcing them against your ears may result in eardrum
    damage. Avoid using the headphones where they are
    liable to be struck by people or other objects, such as a
    ball, etc.
    Pressing the headphones against your ears may produce a
    diaphragm click sound. This is not a malfunction.
    Clean the headphones with a soft dry cloth.
    Do not leave the plug dirty otherwise the sound may be
    distorted.
    Be sure to consult a Sony dealer when the earpads
    become dirty or damaged, or when the headphones
    require repair work.
    Do not leave the headphones in a location subject to
    direct sunlight, heat or moisture.
    Do not subject the headphones to excessive shock.
    Handle the driver units carefully.
    If you feel drowsy or sick while using this headphones,
    stop use immediately.
    Notes on headphones
    High volume may affect your hearing. For traffic
    safety, do not use while driving or cycling.
    As headphones reduce outside sounds, they may cause a
    traffic accident. Also, avoid listening with your headphones
    in situations where hearing must not be impaired, for
    example, a railroad crossing, a construction site, etc.
    Preventing hearing damage
    Avoid using headphones at high volume. Hearing experts
    advise against continuous, loud and extended play. If you
    experience a ringing in your ears, reduce the volume or
    discontinue use.
    Note on static electricity
    In particularly dry air conditions, noise or sound skipping
    may occur, or mild tingling may be felt on your ears. This is a
    result of static electricity accumulated in the body, and not a
    malfunction of the headphones.
    The effect can be minimized by wearing clothes made from
    natural materials.
    If you have any questions or problems concerning the
    system that are not covered in this manual, please consult
    the nearest Sony dealer.
    Troubleshooting
    No sound
    Recharge the headphones. You can use the headphones
    while charging.
    You can listen to the music using the headphones even
    when the POWER switch is set to “OFF”. In this case, the
    noise canceling function, Digital Equalizer, S-Master and
    DSEE are not active, and the headphones operate as
    passive headphones.
    Check that the rechargeable battery is not depleted.
    Check the connection of the headphones and the
    equipment.
    Check that the connected equipment is turned on.
    Turn up the volume of the connected equipment.
    The noise canceling effect is not sufficient
    The noise canceling function is effective in low frequency
    ranges such as airplanes, trains, or offices (near air-
    conditioning, etc.) and is not as effective for higher
    frequencies, such as human voices.
    Turn on the headphones.
    Distorted sound
    Turn down the volume of the connected equipment.
    Recharge the headphones.
    Power does not turn on or the headphones
    do not operate properly
    Recharge the headphones.
    If the power does not turn on, even after charging the
    headphones, the rechargeable battery may be damaged.
    In this case, consult your place of purchase or a Sony
    dealer.
    Charging cannot be done
    Check that the charging indicator is lights up.
    Connect the headphones and the micro-USB cable
    securely.
    Check that the micro-USB cable and the computer are
    firmly connected.
    Check that the micro-USB cable and the computer are
    directly connected; not via a USB hub.
    Check the system requirements for a computer that can
    charge the battery using USB.
    Check that the computer is turned on.
    Check that the computer is not in standby, sleep or
    hibernation mode.
    If the charging indicator blinks (blinking patterns: about 30
    seconds on and 3 seconds off), you are using an adaptor
    other than the recommended one. Use a USB AC Adaptor
    specified in “Recommended accessory (sold separately)”.
    If the charging indicator blinks, the headphones may be
    malfunctioning. Disconnect the unit from the connected
    device, and consult your place of purchase, or a Sony
    dealer.
    The unit cannot be recognized by a
    computer
    Check that the micro-USB cable and the computer are
    firmly connected.
    Disconnect the micro-USB cable from the computer and
    connect again.
    Check that the micro-USB cable and the computer are
    directly connected; not via a USB hub.
    There may be a problem with the connected USB port
    of the computer. Connect to another USB port if it is
    available.
    Try the USB connection procedure again in cases other
    than those stated above.
    No operation works
    Set the POWER switch of the headphones to “OFF”,
    confirm the connections, and then set the POWER switch
    back to “ON”.
    Reset the headphones.
    Insert a small pin, etc. into the RESET button on the left
    housing, and press until the button slightly rebounds.
    The connected iPod does not work
    Check if the cord is connected correctly. Connect
    the L type plug to the iPod and the other plug to the
    headphones.
