Wearing and adjusting your product
Proper fit is important for product comfort and performance. Get tips on how to properly fit and adjust your product.
Here are some guidelines to fit your headset.
Proper fit on your head is important both for comfort and optimal noise-reduction performance.
Wearing the headset
- Use the L (left) and R (right) markings on either side of the headband to orient the headset properly
- With the headset on, adjust the headband so the side pads rest above your ears
- A low, rumbling sound or frequent, brief losses of noise reduction may indicate an improper fit or blocked earbud ports
- During a long flight, you may feel a slight pressure point, which can be relieved by adjusting the headband position. As you use the headset, you'll develop a sense of how it should sound and feel, which can help while adjusting it
- Make your final adjustments with the headset powered on in a noisy environment. In very loud conditions, such as during takeoff, you may experience a brief reduction in noise cancelation as the headset compensates for a momentary pressure change.
Microphone placementMicrophone placement is important for clear communication. With the headset on your head, make these adjustments:
- Move the microphone boom until the microphone is level with your mouth
- Face the white mark on the microphone toward your lips
- Position the microphone 1/2" (1.5 cm) from your lips and slight off-center. Avoid contact with the microphone and your lips
- Try on the headset and test its operation before flight.
