Quick Tips

  • The Bluetooth connection is established from the right earbud. For the most stable connection, keep the device near the right-hand side or in the right pocket.
  • If you prefer to wear only one earbud, you must wear the right earbud as this is the main earbud connected to Bluetooth.
  • Choosing the correct ear tip makes a significant improvement in audio quality due to the proper seal for the driver. Test all ear tips for best results.
  • Only ONE Bluetooth device can be connected at a time. Turn off Bluetooth on unwanted devices and turn on Bluetooth on the chosen device to connect.


Fully dry off the earbuds before placing them in the charging case.

If the earbuds are damp or wet, this will cause damage to the charging case. The warranty will be voided if the charging case shows damage by water/sweat.

Warm-up Your Headphones

Optional: Burn-in is the process for exercising new audio equipment. We recommend 40 hours of burn-in time for most headphones to reach optimal performance. The main purpose of the process is to loosen the diaphragm of a newly crafted headphone and to stress the headphone driver. Normal, everyday use can also burn in the headphones through JLab’s proprietary burn-in provides an ideal mix of sounds and frequency sweeps to achieve this.
Burn-in icon

Burn in your audio equipment with the JLab Audio app available on the App Store and Google Play.

Or access the burn-in method at: jlabaudio.com/burnin


  • Avoid extreme heat, cold, and humidity.
  • Avoid dropping or crushing the earbuds.
  • Wax may build up in the earbud tips, lowering the sound quality.
    Carefully remove the wax with a cotton swab or other small tool to improve the sound quality.
  • If you experience discomfort or pain, try lowering the volume or discontinuing use temporarily.
  • If you experience regular discomfort while using this product, discontinue use and consult your physician.
  • We recommend you treat your earbuds as you would a nice pair of sunglasses and keep them in a safe location when not in use.
