    Noise cancellation

    Your device supports noise canceling headsets. By using a noise canceling 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.

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

    To use a noise-canceling headset

    1. Connect the noise-canceling headset to your device.
    2. Find and tap Settings > Sound > Accessory settings > Noise canceling, then enable the Noise canceling function by tapping the slider.
    3. Tap Headset/Headphone type, and select the type of your headset/headphone.
    4. If you want Noise canceling to be enabled only during music or video playback or when the screen is active, tap the Power save mode slider to enable this function.
    5. If you want Noise canceling to be enabled for as long as the headset is connected, tap the Power save mode slider to disable this function.

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

    You can also enable the Noise canceling function via the notification on the Quick settings panel when a noise-canceling headset is connected to your device.

    To Adjust the Settings to the Noise Environment

    1. Make sure a noise-canceling headset is connected to your device.
    2. Find and tap Settings > Sound > Accessory settings > Noise canceling > Noise environment.
    3. Select the relevant noise environment type, then tap OK.
