Hello jprod

 

Thank you for you rmessage. If your model is mdr-xb450 it is require only to have a stereo mini plug since they don't have the capability of being used with any type of software to operate them. Regarding the other model mentioned as800, are you referring to the Active Sports Bluetooth Headset - MDR-AS800BT ? 

 

 

We will be waiting for your response.

Hello jprod

 

 Based on the specifications for the Smartkey for this model, unfortunately it will only work with an Android operating system 4.0 and above since its only available through the Google Play Store and it cannot be modified to be used with any other operating system.

Hello jprod!

 

The SmartKey application was designed  to be used with Sony Xperia devices which work with the operating system Android only, if it is used with other products we cannot guarantee the full functionalityof it. Unfortunately there is no plan on including this application for iOS. The functions for this system are only the following :

 

  • Plays/pauses a track
  • Skips to the next track
  • Starts the VoiceOver ( feature depends on iPhone and its software version)
  • Rejects an incoming call
  • The button function may work but it depends on the smartphone.
