Isolation never sounded so good

mk earphones are the newest addition to Etymotic's high-fidelity Isolator earphone series. Featuring Etymotic's renowned sound quality and high noise isolation.

Isolator earphones are a great choice for today's active lifestyles. They tune out the world around you, so you can hear every detail in your music. These low-profile, in-ear earphones fit comfortably with hats and helmets. Ideal for commuting, travel and sports activities.

Like other members of the Isolator series, the mk5 matches the ear’s response for natural sound reproduction over a broad frequency range. In addition to awesome sound, Isolator earphones promote hearing safety. Their sound-blocking capabilities reduce the impulse to turn up the volume in order to drown out unwanted noise from the outside world. Quiet passages and soft dynamics come through clearly, and loud passages don’t hammer your eardrums.

Instructions For Use

Selecting an Eartip

The eartip that is most comfortable is the likely choice, but it MUST SEAL well in your ear. If you can easily hear others when the volume is off, you don't have a good seal. Twist it in deeper, or choose another eartip.

When changing eartips make sure the eartip fits securely on the stem of the earphone.

Proper Insertion

Important: Sound quality, full bass response and noise isolation all depend on a good eartip seal in the ear canal. View the Earphone Insertion Video

  • Carefully insert the earphone while pulling up and out on the back of the ear.
  • Twist the earphone up into the ear canal while inserting, until outside noise is blocked out.
  • 3-flange eartip: Moistening eases insertion.
  • Foam eartip: Roll down or compress foam eartip before inserting. Hold the eartip in place for about 5 seconds while the foam expands to create a tight seal in the ear canal.
  • Glider eartip: Simply push into ear canal.

Removal

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

Care

  • Do not expose the earphones to extreme temperatures.
  • Avoid dropping and strong impact.
  • Leave eartips on the earphones for shock protection.
  • Do not pull on the cord to remove the earphone from the audio device or the ear.
  • Clean or replace eartips prior to use by others.

Cleaning and Replacing Eartips

Over time eartips may lose their elasticity. For best performance and retention, replace 3-flange eartips every 3-6 months. Replace foam and glider eartips regularly.

To clean the 3-flange eartips:

  1. Remove the eartip from the earphone.
  2. Clean with water and mild soap.
  3. Dry the eartip before placing it back on the earphone.
