How do I get the best bass performance
from my earphones?
For optimum bass performance, a good
seal is required between the earphones
and your ear canals.
Human ears are all unique – size and
shape varies from person to person,
which is why the earphones come with
three pairs of differently designed ear
tips.  Try each of them when playing
music, and choose the pair that offers
the best comfort and bass performance.
You should notice that the correctly
fitting ear tips also block out more of the
background noise.
