Default Headphones built in speaker

Today when I was out my z2 rang I had my headphones in I answered the call via my sw2 and I could speak and be heard so I presume the headphones have a built in microphone I didn't know that as there is no volume rocker on the headphones

There is. There always has, on my stock headphones, O guess. It's a small hole, generally on the little thing that "unites" the two ear cables

According to the leaflet that came with mine, the microphone is actually in the earpiece. There is no mic on the wires
So far:- P900 => C500 => Wizard => Prophet => Artemis => MDAC4 => Touch Pro 2 => Wildfire => Defy => Razr => SGS3 => Z2

It could explain why model MDR-NC31E (not MDR-NC31EM) can be also noise canceling set...

Just quoting my reply to a thread in the question section.

My headphones are MDR-NC31E and they are noise cancelling. I checked Sony's website and only MDR-NC31EM appears. I think it's the same model and they changed the name (put an extra M there) or different name for different markets.

L.E.: I checked the papers inside the box (last image I added) and it says MDR-NC31EM . So they are the same. Probably they decided to change the name after some of them were already manufactured.

So hey guys is it me or just anyone who has their btn200 has this pairing issue?
cause sometimes it is paired but the sounds don't come out of the headset,
instead of that it comes out from the external speakers of the phone, I tried unpairing and repairing too. Didn't work out for me though,
I saw it it's not really working like the battery is around 0-30%, does anyone know why?

I dont have the btn200, but i did get a free btx300 speaker and not had any issues with pairing...... have you got stamina mode or any battery saving thingys on??? As you mentioned battery life, maybe somethings killing bluetooth at a certain percentage to preserve battery, if not that then i dont know

Yea I was actually thinking the same and I am gonna try it out without the low-battery mode cause it might be killing the link in-between.
And the funny part is that it shows that my headset is connected. haha
