If you just want to quickly hear your surroundings or have a quick chat without taking out your earbuds, you can use the Hear-Through function. The noise-cancelling microphones will feed back the ambient sound so you can hear what is happening around you. Using the app, you can set the Hear-Through level to your personal preference.

Audio Codecs

Codecs are compression technologies used for audio streaming, among other things. Using the Audio-Technica Connect App, you can choose between the Codecs called AAC and SBC, or let the system choose by default. The AAC connection transmits excellent audio data to your headphones and is stable over short distances. The SBC Codec delivers a very stable connection, with slightly lower audio quality, but works better for larger distances.
