Optimise the switching for you

This feature learns how you use the headphones while using Adaptive Sound Control and switches settings at an optimal time.

Just enable this setting and follow the on-screen prompt to sign into your Headphones Connect app account.

Action based settings

The Headphones Connect app detects what’s happening around you and what you’re doing. Then it adjusts settings like Noise Cancelling and Ambient Sound levels automatically. So, if you’re running, ambient sound levels might go up, then go down when you’re sitting in a cafe.

action based
How to get started with Action based settings

In your Headphones Connect app, while on the Status tab, select the right arrow next to Adaptive Sound Control.

Switch on Adaptive Sound Control if it isn’t already on, then click the cog icon next to “Detection of Actions”. This will show you the default settings for each action: staying, walking, running, and transport.

You can stick with default settings or change them to your liking, for example, putting Ambient Sound levels up when you're walking to hear the world around you.

Noise Cancelling and Focus on Voice

Shut the world off and hear only what you want to hear – from nothing at all to voices only.

How to adjust Noise Cancelling

Don't miss out on your favourite sounds, no matter where you are. Adaptive Sound Control can cancel external noise, while also letting in voices so you don’t miss important announcements, for example, on your daily commute.

Ambient sound pre-sets

Increasing ambient sound using the 20 pre-sets in the app lets you listen to ambient sound more naturally, even with headphones on. Within the Ambient Sound Control setting, simply move the slider.

Focus on Voice

Keeping your earbuds clean

Clean your earbuds often to keep them in optimal condition. If the outside of the headset or the charging case get dirty, wipe them clean with a soft dry cloth.

If the headset is particularly dirty, soak a cloth in a diluted solution of neutral detergent, and wring it well before using it to clean the headset. Do not use solvents such as thinner, benzene, or alcohol, as they may damage the finish on the surface of the headset or cause other damages.
