  • To ensure compatibility and correct usage, always consult the user manual of any device before connecting the product to it.
  • Audio-Technica will not be liable in any way for any loss of data in the unlikely event that such losses should occur while using the
  • The structure of the product makes it easy for sound to leak. On public transport systems or in other public places, keep the volume
    low so as not to disturb other people.
  • Minimize the volume on your audio device before connecting the product in order to avoid hearing damage from sudden exposure to
    excessive volume.
  • When using the product in a dry environment, you may feel a tingling sensation in your ears. This is caused by static electricity accumulated on your body, not by product malfunction.
  • Do not subject the product to a strong impact.
  • Do not store the product under direct sunlight, near heating devices, or in a hot, humid, or dusty place. Do not allow the product to get wet.
  • When the product is used for a long time, the product may become discolored due to ultraviolet light (especially direct sunlight) or wear.
  • Connect/disconnect the cable by holding the plug. Pulling directly on the cable can result in a broken wire and the risk of electric shock.
  • The included cable may become caught or severed if the product is placed in a bag or pocket without adequate protection.
  • Do not wind the cable around your portable audio device. This may damage or sever the cable.
  • When adjusting the cable length, allow for some leeway by making the cable slightly long. If the cable is too short, it may pull on the
    connected device, resulting in a break or malfunction.
  • When winding the cable, be sure to disconnect the cable from the smartphone first.
  • Do not wind the plug base or the part where the cable splits. Doing so can strain the parts, resulting in a risk of breakage.
  • To prevent the cable from being damaged, be careful not to twist or wind it with unnecessary force.
  • Lengthening the headphone cable requires a separate extension cable available from your dealer.


Get into the habit of regularly cleaning the product to ensure that it will last for a long time. Do not use alcohol, paint thinners or other solvents for cleaning purposes.

  • To clean the main unit, wipe with a dry cloth.
  • Use a dry cloth to clean the cable of any sweat or dirt. Failure to clean the cable may cause it to deteriorate and harden over time, resulting in malfunction.
  • Wipe the plugs on the cable with a dry cloth if dirty. Using the plugs without cleaning them can cause sound interruption or distortion.
  • For long-time storage, keep the product in a well-ventilated place without high temperatures and humidity.
  • The silicone parts of the product may degrade through storage and use. If the silicone parts become loose and easily removable due to
    degradation, contact your local Audio-Technica dealer.
