Use Responsibly
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.

Cleaning
Wipe earcups with a soft cloth dampened with a mild soap solution.

Using Finger Tip Controls
The surface of the right ear cup is a touch sensitive control surface. The center section (the logo) serves as a play/pause control. Tap once for play/pause also for answer/end.

Swipe motion on the touch pad works as a volume control. Swipe up for more volume, swipe down for less volume. Tap action anywhere on the touch pad works as track forward/track back control. Tap two times for the next track. Tap three times for the previous track.

Headphones “Break-in”
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.

Battery
If applicable, battery must be recycled or disposed of properly.

Important Monster® Performance and Safety Tips
Listen Responsibly
To avoid hearing damage, make sure that the volume on your music player is turned down before connecting your headphones. After placing headphones in / on your ears, gradually turn up the volume until you reach a comfortable listening level.

Noise levels are measured in decibels (dB), exposure to any noise at or above 85 dB can cause gradual hearing loss.

Monitor your use; hearing loss is a function of loudness versus time. The louder it is, the less time you can be exposed to it. The softer it is, the more time you can listen to it. This decibel (dB) table compares some common sounds and shows how they rank in potential harm to hearing.
