CAUTION

Consult a physician or audiologist if you have excessive ear wax, difficulty inserting the eartips, or discomfort after prolonged use.

inMotion earphones exclude most external sounds even at low listening levels. It is unsafe to use insert earphones while driving a motorized vehicle, operating machinery, bicycling or jogging, because you may not be alerted to potential danger.

Do not use the earphones at excessively loud levels.

Noise-inducedhearing loss is a function of exposure time, the average sound level and the peak of very loud sounds. Decreased listening levels allow for longer periods of safe listening time.

PROPER CARE

• Do not expose earphones to extreme temperatures.

 

• Avoid dropping or strong impact. Extreme shock can damage the earphones.

 

• Always leave an eartip on the earphone for shock protection.

 

• Perspiration entering the nozzle may cause the earphone to temporarily stop

working. Normal operation usually returns after the earphone dries out.

 

• Do not pull on the cord to remove it from the jack or the ear.

 

• Clean or replace the eartips prior to use by others.

 

• Replace disposable foam eartips regularly.

 

• Earwax buildup can reduce the earphone output. When the filters become

 

clogged they should be replaced. See Changing Filters.

EARTIPS

In addition to flanged eartips, inMotion earphones are supplied with disposable foam eartips. Both types provide excellent sound reproduction when properly

inserted. If the earphones seem to lack bass, insert the eartip deeper into the ear canal to obtain a better seal, or try the foam eartip option.

Flanged eartips

These reusable eartips should be cleaned regularly.

Cleaning the flanged eartips

1.Carefully remove the eartip from the earphone.

2.Use water and mild soap to remove dirt and earwax.

3.Rinse and completely dry the eartip.

4.With a slight twisting motion, push the eartip on the stem until it fits securely.

Foam eartips

Disposable foam eartips compress to form a tight seal that holds the earphones firmly in place.

The eartips at the end of the earphones can be replaced by sliding them off and on. A combination of twisting and pulling is recommended for eartip removal.

EARTIP INSERTION

Flanged eartip insertion

For best results, moisten the flanged eartip before insertion.

Carefully insert one earphone at a time while pulling up and out on the back of the ear. The earphone should seal deeply and comfortably in the ear canal.

Foam eartip insertion

Use a foam eartip if a good seal cannot be obtained with a flanged eartip.

Compress the foam at the end of the earphone by rolling it between your thumb and forefinger before inserting it. Hold the eartip in place for about 5 seconds while the foam expands to create a tight seal in the ear canal.

REMOVAL

Remove earphones slowly with a twisting motion to gradually break the seal. Do not pull on the cords to remove earphones.

FILTERS

inMotion earphones have special filters that smooth the frequency response and prevent earwax from entering the earphones. These filters are located at the tip of the earphone and are visible when the eartip is removed. If the filters become clogged they should be replaced. A dirty filter will reduce earphone output. The frequency with which the filters need to be changed will vary widely among users. The filters should be changed if the volume decreases or the sound quality declines.

Note: Once removed, the filters are not reusable.

Additional replacement filters and tools are available from
