The touch sensor on the wireless headphones works unexpectedly even though I don't touch it

    Follow these steps to troubleshoot the issue:

    Note: Check the performance of the touch sensor after completing each of these steps. If the issue continues, proceed to the next step.

    1. The touch sensor may not work properly if it meets any of the conditions below:
      • The touch sensor becomes wet due to rain, sweat, a wet towel, or something else.
      • Your hair is touching the sensor.
      • You are using a face mask.
      • If hair or another object is likely to hit the touch sensor and cause it to react, you can change the assigned function of the sensor to Not Assigned in the Sony | Headphones Connect app.
      • If you are using a face mask, the touch sensor may accidentally react to actions such as breathing. Adjust the position of the mask to avoid affecting the touch sensor with your breath.
    2. Turn off the Adaptive Sound Control function using the Sony | Headphones Connect app.
      1. Under the Status tab, select the (right arrow) next to Adaptive Sound Control.
      2. Tap the slide bar to set Adaptive Sound Control to Off.
    3. Reset the headphones.
