What is one-touch listening? (NFC)

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    MPORTANT: Not all Sony products are compatible with one-touch listening. To check whether your product is compatible with one-touch listening, refer to the manual supplied with your product.

    One-touch listening allows you to use the NFC function for easy wireless playback of music on your smartphone, tablet, or Walkman. You can pair, connect, disconnect, and switch connection of devices by just touching the N-Marks of two devices to one another. 

    It simplifies the time-consuming pairing operation when connecting via Bluetooth function for the first time.

    Wireless speakers, wireless headsets, home theater systems with Bluetooth function, AV receivers, and other Sony devices with the N-Mark are compatible with one-touch listening.
