Sometimes, it happens that you see, your headphones are showing connected but you’ll hear no sound and you might find yourself in such a situation where you are in such a miserable condition that you have to fire up your laptop and search for it.

Too Many Paired Devices

If that’s the case, that you have too many devices connected to your Sony Headsets and as you turn them on, you’ll hear connected but the device where you wanted to use it, isn’t connected.

To fix this issue all you need to do is to reset your headphones and to do, just press the power button for 7 seconds and the history of all paired devices will now be cleared.

Connected but No Sound

If that’s a case, where you see that as you power on your Sony Headphones, you’ll hear a sound “Connected”, you check your laptop and your Headset is successfully connected to your device, but when you play some sound, there is no sound.

That’s because of Security Protocols that they aren’t allowed to start the Audio Protocol between you and your Device so if that’s the case, what you need to do is to restart your Mac’s Bluetooth and then reconnect your Earbuds and boom, this time they’ll work.

How to Go into Pairing Mode

If your headphones are new, as you turn them on, they will be in Pairing Mode, by default, but if you have been using it for some months and have a lot of devices paired to them in your home. You might face some trouble while connecting to the device you wanted.

To fix this, you need to reset your pairing history from your Sony Earbuds and what’ll happen is that you have now a clean history, just like you’ve purchased a new one.
