  • While pulling up and out on the back of the ear carefully insert the earphone.
  • Twist the earphone into the ear canal while inserting, until outside noise is blocked out.
     
  • 3-flange eartips: Moistening eases insertion.

Changing Filters

Etymotic earphones have special filters that smooth the frequency response and prevent earwax from entering the earphones. A filter is located at the end of the earphone and is visible when the eartip is removed. If a filter becomes clogged, it should be replaced. A dirty filter will reduce earphone output. The filter should be changed if loudness decreases or the sound quality declines.

Note:Filters are not reusable.
