Adjustable ANC must first be configured to your specific hearing profile using the Jabra Sound+ app before it can be used.
HearThrough lets you pay attention to your surroundings and engage in conversation, when not on a call, without needing to remove the earbuds. The microphones pick up surrounding sounds and transmit them to the speakers.
Sidetone enables you to hear your own voice when you are on a call. The benefit of Sidetone is that it enables you to determine how loud you are speaking.
Sidetone is on by default during calls and can be turned on/off using the Jabra Sound+ app.
