Do not use headphones when it’s unsafe to do so—while operating a vehicle, riding a bike, crossing streets, or during any activity or in an environment where your full attention to your surroundings is required.
It‘s dangerous to drive while wearing headphones, and in many places, illegal because it decreases your chances of hearing life-saving sounds outside of your vehicle, such as another car’s horn and emergency vehicle sirens.
Please avoid wearing your headphones while driving.
Use one of Monster’s FM transmitters to listen to your mobile media devices through your car stereo instead.
Wipe earcups with a soft cloth dampened with a mild soap solution.

GUIDE TO INDICATOR LIGHTS
Break-in time for headphones? We’re kidding, right? No we’re not. Like any high performance product, whether it’s cars or headphones, they’re mechanical devices that settle in after use. Your new headphones will sound incredible out of the box, but will “mellow” out after use and sound even better. We recommend playing them for 8 hours. After 20 hours of playing, they should be fully broken in. Enjoy.
If applicable, battery must be recycled or disposed of properly.
