Notice of free-of-charge exchange for affected WI-SP510 headset units identifiable by serial number – 19 November 2021

    IMPORTANT: The free repair service for WI-SP510 described in the announcement below ended on 30 November 2022. Sony will continue to support the product in accordance with our rules and regulations for repair service (added on 1 December 2022). 

    Dear valued Sony customer,

    Thank you for your continued interest in Sony products.

    It has come to our attention that some WI-SP510 units may experience an issue where the headset stops powering on, which can be due to water corrosion.

    To address this issue, Sony has decided to extend the warranty of the affected WI-SP510 units until 30 November 2022. If your headset is confirmed as being amongst the impacted units, as identified by its serial number, and you encounter this issue, you can exchange your affected WI-SP510 unit. Please check if your unit meets the eligibility criteria listed below.

    We apologise for any inconvenience caused and would like to thank you for your understanding.

    Only a limited number of WI-SP510 headsets can potentially be affected by this phenomenon and exchanged free of charge. If you are experiencing this issue, please enter your unit’s serial number in the serial number verification tool below to check if your unit can be exchanged. 

    If your WI-SP510 unit is among the affected models, you can exchange it at the shop where you purchased it. Should this not be possible, a link to our shop locator will appear under the verification tool with directions to the nearest shop where you can exchange your unit.  

    How to check the model name and serial number of your headset
