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

    If you feel that the battery life is too short, change the settings or how you store the headphones to lower the consumption and increase battery life.

    • Turn off sound settings such as DSEE HX Auto and Equalizer on the Sony | Headphones Connect app. These settings shorten the playtime when turned on.
      • Operating time when fully charged.

    • After you use the headphones, store them in the charging case.
      • If you place the headphones in your pocket, they are still considered being used and the power saving mode won't activate.

    Note: After updating the headphones to software version 2.0.0, you can use the Equalizer and DSEE HX simultaneously. Be aware that activating both features increases battery consumption and will shorten continuous playback time.
