    Noise cancellation

    Your device supports noise cancelling headsets. By using a noise cancelling headset with your device, you can get much clearer audio quality when listening, for example, to music in a noisy environment, such as on a bus, a train or a plane. You can also use this feature to create a silent environment in which to study, work or read.

    Tip

    To ensure optimal performance, noise cancelling headsets from Sony are recommended.

    To use a noise cancelling headset

    1. Connect the noise cancelling headset to your device.
    2. From your Home screen, tap Icn sony home apptray normal > Settings > Sound & notification > Accessory settings > Noise cancelling, then drag the slider beside Noise cancelling to the right.
    3. If you want Noise cancelling to be enabled only during music or video playback or when the screen is active, drag the slider beside Power saver mode to the right.
    4. If you want Noise cancelling to be enabled for as long as the headset is connected, drag the slider beside Power saver mode to the left.

    Note

    A noise cancelling headset may not be included with your device at purchase.
