Safety Use and Hazard Warnings

Keep this product and its accessories out of reach of children. Handling or use by children may put them at risk of death or serious injury as products contain small parts and wires that could risk choking or strangulation. Failure to use, clean, or maintain earbud silicone tips properly may increase the risk of ear tips detaching from the earbud and becoming lodged in the ear.

If a silicone tip becomes lodged in your ear, PLEASE SEEK IMMEDIATE SKILLED MEDICAL ATTENTION AND ASSISTANCE TO REMOVE THE SILICONE TIP AND AVOID DAMAGE TO THE EAR. Damage to the ear may be caused by non-medical professionals attempting to remove the silicone ear tips.

Do not use products at excessive volumes when a failure to hear your surroundings could be dangerous, such as when driving, running or any other outdoor activity that traffic may cause a threat. Always be aware of your surroundings and listen at a moderate to low volume.

Regular Checkups and Discomfort

Be sure to have your hearing checked by an audiologist regularly. If you’re experiencing high wax buildup in ear, discontinue use until a medical professional has examined your ears. Stop using the earbuds if they are causing any form of discomfort or irritation.

Removing Earbuds

When removing earbuds, use a slow careful motion. Be sure to never pull the earbud cord hard out of your ear when removing. Prior to inserting the earbud, always recheck the silicone tip to make sure it is still firmly attached to the earbud.

Ringing in Ears

Turn up the volume control only far enough to hear properly and never at an excessive volume level. Ringing in the ears may indicate that the volume level is too high, if this occurs lower your volume level for safety.
