You can hear yourself talking through the earbuds because of the Sidetone function of your Bluetooth® headphones.

  • This function provides audible feedback to the caller that the phone works.
  • It helps you realize that you dropped a call because instead of hearing yourself, you hear nothing.
  • This function may become excessive in loud environments as your headphones microphone picks up the ambient sounds.
  • This function can't be disabled.
